    LEVEL PLAYING FORMAT

    Teams will field one male and one female driver, promoting gender equality and a level playing field amongst competitors.

    Each driver will complete one lap behind the wheel, with a changeover incorporated into the race format. The teams will determine which driver goes first to best suit their strategy and driver order selections are made confidentially, with competitors kept in the dark as to other teams’ choices until the cars reach the start-line. Contests between males and females will therefore be ensured.

    NATURAL CHALLENGES

    X Prix circuits will also incorporate natural challenges that will leave viewers at the edge of their seats, and drivers and teams will be pushed right to the limits of their abilities; with hazards to navigate and defeat such as extreme gradients, jumps, banks, berms, pits, dunes and water splashes.
