The World Championship is run over a series of qualifying rounds (see the fixture list). The top 48 qualifiers are split into two semi-final rounds. The semi-final grid is lined up different to a normal BriSCA F1 race, with the highest points scorers at the front. The top 10 finishers from each semi-final go through to the World Final. Again drivers are seeded on the grid with the highest qualifiers on the front row.
The winner of the World Final gets the honour of wearing a Gold Roof on their car for the following 12 months.
