More than 1000 people participated to the qualification phase that last almost 2 months.
Only 52 places available for the next phase.
The software created for this event, a slightly modified version of nKPRO, was specifically designed for hotlaps.
A small mistake, touching a wall or the grass would cancel your lap.
The classification was generated on the sum of the best time on 2 tracks.
At the end the difference between drivers was amazingly small.
Here is a graph showing the difference between the qualified drivers.
The 52nd had only 2.166 seconds difference from the 1st on sum of the times of two tracks!
The last 44 drivers in only 1.104 seconds. Then a small groups of monsters with similar times and then 3 aliens that gave half a second to the monsters!
At the end Radiator Springs Racing Team managed to have both drivers that partacipated to the championship inside the 52!
- Mario Gilles with a wonderful 22nd qualification time
- Andrea Lojelo with a 45th qualification time. Really tough fight to get there.
