Qualifying Round Details 

During the qualifying round, each class will race on a specific track. This round will be all about time trials, so your goal is to set the fastest time on your class track. The top 6 players in each class with the fastest times will earn a ticket to the finals.

Also, during the qualifying round, each race must have a minimum of four vehicles (including the player) for the times to be logged.

Players have the freedom to race as many times as they wish to achieve their quickest time.
