The event commences from 10 a.m. and gates to the track open from 8 a.m. Scrutineering for the drivers’ cars will take place on June 29 from 4:30 p.m., and this also doubles as an evening of festivities where fans can come to relax and chat with drivers.
The following day will be for qualifying which starts from 2 p.m., with drivers chasing pole position on the starting grid.
Details of the event were revealed at a press briefing yesterday at the Wildey Gymnasium.
