The 12 drivers will be available to meet racing fans during an autograph session beginning at 12:15 p.m. and then each will be in the sulky for three races (horses and drivers drawn by lot). Post time is 1:05 p.m. and the legends compete in races thee, five, six and eight. A winner will be declared based on the European points system.
