Academy Trophy Sporting regulations

- Removal of Final "B" and an extension of the scale of scoring for the 34 drivers now allowed to participate in each final race.

- Tyres: The Manufacturer chosen by tender will provide, in exchange for a voucher presented by the competitor, slick tyres with a bar code and wets, to each driver. The tyres will be drawn and labeled with the competitor's number. Unmarked and non-unpacked rain tyres will be taken back at the end of the meeting. The VOC measurement will be performed using a device called MiniRAE Lite, and from qualifying to the finals, this should not exceed 15 ppm.

Specific Prescriptions

Article 20 on points ties between drivers has been modified to be consistent with the different formats of the Championships. The greatest number of first places in Race 1, Race 2, or Finals, according to the corresponding schema, will decide any tie. If necessary, the second largest number of places, the third, etc ... make the difference. In case of a tie, the highest number of first places (or second, or third, ...) in the pre-finals will be used. If the tie remains, the highest place in the last final of the last event will be decisive.
