Qualifying for the Silver class of the GT World Challenge Esports IGTC Endurance Series will be held as a hot-lap qualifying. Each Driver of the team will be required to set hot-laps on a qualifying server at 2 different circuits, both of which are circuits on the calendar for the season: Suzuka and Laguna Seca.
Drivers must set their hotlaps in the car that the team is registered to. Laps set in any other car than the registered car will be invalid for the qualifying. The same car must be used at both tracks, it is not possible to use a different car at each.
At each track, each drivers best lap time are combined to create an average lap time. The teams average lap time from each track will then be added together to create a total lap time and teams will be sorted in the standings based on this total lap time.
1:57.955 (Avg. lap time @ Suzuka) + 1:20.888 (Avg. lap time @ Laguna Seca) = Total Lap Time of 3:18.843

However, there is a requirement that there is at least TWO of each manufacturer in the Pro class. In the event that two of each manufacturer are not in the top 24, then the fastest team(s) in the missing manufacturer(s) will be eligible to qualify in place of the teams in the top 24.
