Qualifying Heats will define the finalists among the 226 drivers, representing 34 countries, battling for the class titles at Lonato. The long marathon has awarded the first points of Round 2 to the best-classified drivers at the end of the heats run from Wednesday to Thursday. The Heats of Round 3, to unfold from Friday to Saturday, will give further points before Finalists will compete in the Prefinals on Saturday and Finals on Sunday.
