The GP2 Championship is a form of open wheel motor racing.
Designed to make racing affordable for the teams and to make it the perfect training ground for life in PlaystationGL, GP2 has made it mandatory for all of the teams to use the same chassis, engine and tyre supplier so that true driver ability is reflected.
GP2 is a one-make championship consisting of up to 20 identical cars.
Forging a new beginning for the penultimate rung of the open-wheel motorsport ladder, an agreement has been made between the Directors and the admins to create the ultimate training ground for League Racing in the new PlaystationGL GP2 League
The Race Week
On Wednesday, drivers have a 12 minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for Wednesdays' Feature race which has a length of 25% Race Distance. Four points are awarded for pole position.
After the Feature there is a sprint race of 25% Race Distance. The grid is decided by the Feature Race's result with top 8 being reversed, so the driver who finished 8th will have to start from pole position and the winner has to start from 8th place.
The top ten drivers from the feature race score points
(25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1)
with two points being awarded to the driver who set the fastest lap of the race.
The grid for Race 2 (Sprint Race) is determined by the finishing order of the first race, with the top 8 positions reversed.
The top eight finishers score points (16, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1), and the driver who sets the fastest lap scores two points.
Any driver who is not classified in the top 10 positions at the end of the race will not be eligible for points awarded for fastest lap.

At the first community race at Silverstone me and Faunus interviewed Irun after he got eliminated in Q2 and tried to interview Craig after Q1.
Now I was thinking about this and figure it would be fun for both the commentators and those who get eliminated during Q1 and Q2 to have them join the Commentary Party for a few minutes, share their view on what went wrong and the race ahead. This makes it a bit less boring for them to wait until Q3 finishes.
Obviously this is optional so it's up to the commentators to decide whetever they want to do this or not.
