The qualification rules have also been updated. The pilots who qualify for the SGP Final at the end of the 2013-2013 series will be:
- The pilots placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd if there are 10 entries or more at the qualifying SGP
- The pilots placing 1st and 2nd if there are between 5 and 10 entries
- There will be no qualifying pilot if there are less than 5 entries
In addition, the reigning SGP Champion is allowed to participate and, if no pilot from the host country achieves qualification, then the host nation may nominate a “wildcard” finalist.
The IGC Bureau may also invite additional pilots as they feel appropriate.
