There will be two qualifier sessions held between 7PM-10PM on Thursday, July 30 and Friday, July 31 to determine the finalists. The top 20 drivers over the course of Thursday and Friday will be selected to race in the Ultimate evo India Virtual Grand Prix on Saturday at 9PM. If there are sufficient entries, finalists will be split into two Tiers. All participants must take screenshots of their times and send it on the official WhatsApp and Discord groups. The practice and qualifying sessions will be run at the Hungaroring while the race will take place at the Silverstone, in line with the current F1 calendar.
There will be two races held (if there is more than one Tier, two races will be held per Tier) — Race 1 will be a five lap race while Race 2 will be 25 per cent of the full race distance. The starting grid for the first race will be decided by the qualifying times, the second race will run on the reverse grid for the top eight, the rest of the grid will start where they finish the first race.
