Drivers competing in the 2019 Gfinity Supercars Eseries Draft Qualifier can do so starting on July 31st, 2019. The Draft Qualifier will be broken down into two stages and run between July 31st till August 4th.
The first stage will consist of the Open Qualifier in which drivers will receive an email directing them to the iRacing Time Attack Session.
Times will be recorded in a time attack session between 00:00 AEST August 1st until 23:59 AEST August 3rd. Please note, while the session within iRacing may appear to be open at other times, only laps completed during this time will be counted towards ranking the top 16. Laps completed outside of this window will not be eligible.
Once a driver has signed up to the Time Attack Session, they will be able to set their most competitive lap time on Mount Panorama over this 72 hour period. When competing in the Open Qualifier, drivers found to intentionally use any iRacing bug to seek an advantage will be disqualified, this includes but is not limited to the Pit-Lane exploit on Mount Panorama.
On completion of the Open Qualifier, Stage 2 of the Draft Qualifier will be conducted. The top 16 fastest drivers, per lap time set in Stage 1, will be notified via email of their selection for the Closed Qualifier on the morning of the 4th of August.
Drivers will be invited to compete in Stage 2 (Closed Qualifier) later that day (4th of August) at 4:00pm AEST. Drivers will compete over three races to arrange the drivers in a seeded order from 1 through to 16 for draft purposes.
