The Winter Series is the league's mid-season series. Unlike the competition during the regular schedule, it is supposed to create unique situatuions which won't regularily appear on the on-season schedule, which is most likely achieved by different classes of racing each year and this will start off with the Formula E in 2018–19. As the main series of IVRC, the TCC, it will be held every Saturday of a IVRC Winter Series meeting.
Formula E (2018–19):
The inaugural season included several bids and thoughts about the series to go for, ranging from open-wheeler series over multi-class racing to touring cars. Ultimately, as IVRC will not feature any open-wheel racing series until at least 2020, the decision was made towards Formula E, as it's unique nature and challenges will provide entertainment and action for the off-season.
On Saturdays, drivers have a 10-minute qualifying session. The five fastest drivers then go out again, one-by-one, in the Super Pole shoot-out to determine the top five grid positions. This plus the previous qualifying session decides the grid order for the race, run over a time of 30 minutes.
The race will be run with a scoring system similar to the one used in Formula One, however it will feature bonus points for pole position and the fastest race lap:
The maximum number of points a driver can score at any round will be 29.
- Each driver has to drive 80% of race distance to be eligible for points.
