The 2021 season saw the introduction of the ‘joker lap’. This involves team undertaking one longer lap ‘the joker lap’. The Long lap cannot be the first lap but can be taken as any of the remaining laps as long as 3 short and 1 long are completed in total. Circuit racing is exciting and it just got a lot more exciting with the inclusion of the joker lap.
