With the Championship consisting of six rounds across six randomly selected international FIA circuits, contestants are currently gearing up to prepare for the second round of the Championship, which will be held on Friday, June 5. The third is set to take place on June 19, followed by the fourth on July 3 and the fifth round on July 17. The sixth and final round will take place on July 24.
