    Nationals format

    I have never even been to a nationals so what warm-up, practices, and races do we get? How long for each? I thought I read that we are getting one less practice or qual. race this year than usual?
    Can someone send me a link?

    Thursday Optional Test/Tune
    Friday Practice, Qualifying Round 1, Qualifying Round 2 (best time from either session)
    Saturday Warmup, Qualifying Race
    Sunday Championship Races gridded by finishing position from Qualifying Race

    Warmup and qualifying is usually 20 minutes or so if I remember correctly. Qualifying race is in the 25 minute range, the championship race is 45 minutes.

    Yeah only $800.00 for a test day. Too rich for my blood.

    I slacked on signing up for the Thursday test day.

    Guess I'll just suck it up and get the cobwebs out on Friday.

    This whole season I've struggled to find time to get seat time in the car, originally wanted to do the Chin event in August before nationals but the car isn't even back together yet.

    I’m with you Stig. I’ll be hanging Thursday and running Friday.
    Any idea of where we will be pitting?

    What about the same place as we did for the last COTA race? That seemed to work well.
