How does a World Championship Race work?

Depending on the location of the event, a World Championship will include between 20 and 40 entries from between 14 and 25 different countries. 

After Scrutineering- or inspection, as Americans call it- there are time trials.  Drivers are ranked by fastest times and this determines their starting positions in the first of 4 heats.  After the first heat, positions on the jetty are determined by how the driver finished during the race.

A World Championship race is comprised of 4 separate heats.  A driver receives points based on their finishing placement in their 3 best heat finishes.  Points are tallied and positions awarded based on point totals.
