Starting at May 1st, the first 2 weeks of selection are open ONLY to the top 28 pilots from each Nordic nation, according to WPRS as of 01.FEB.2021 5 of the 28 spaces are reserved for female competitors. The female spots will be allocated to men for a total of 28 if they are not filled.

2. Weeks 3 to 6 are then open for selection to general Nordic country entries, according to same WPRS. If Nordic pilots with 0 WPRS or equal points register, they will be ranked by time of registration.
If a selected pilot fails to meet the payment deadline, they shall revert to the waitinglist, and must contact the organizer directly for re-selection.
3. After week 6, selection is open to all other nations, according to same WPRS.
If a selected pilot fails to meet the payment deadline they shall revert to the waitinglist, and must actively contact the organizer to be considered for re-selection.
