Seamless Qualifying - Each group gets their own qualifying session, but cars stranded off course will not be towed back to the paddock until after their seamless session.  For example: Saturday 8:00 AM - Group 1 qualifies and Group 2 qualifies at 8:20 AM.  Stranded cars will not be towed back until after Group 2 finishes their qualifying session.

GRID: Starting positions for the Saturday race will be determined by the fastest time recorded for each car during the Saturday qualifying session. Starting positions for the Sunday race will be determined by the fastest time recorded for each car during each of the Sunday qualifying session. Cars arriving at the grid after their group has been dispatched on track may, at the discretion of the Operating Steward, be held at pit out and released at the end of the pack after the field has completed their pace lap.

QUALIFYING: A driver not qualifying within the maximum of 115% of the recognized track record of their class must obtain permission from the Race Director in order to race. In the case of unusual circumstances, the Race Director can waive this rule for the entire event. See chart in the supplemental regulations.
