Then, they just have to indicate this number in " Pre-Registration in group" when they will pre-register.

*** Attention - new***: They will benefit from a co-efficient of 2 the following year which will double their chance of success.
In the case of being unlucky a second time, they will have priority registration (without pre-registration) for the same race the year after, on the one condition that they have the necessary qualification points by finishing the qualifying races which conform to the current rules of the year of their registration.
This regulation evolves and is susceptible to change each year. In any case the registration conditions for each year are announced at the beginning of February the previous year.
