The Season 1 Momotorway Grand Prix was the third race of Marbula One Season 1, held on 29 February - 1 March 2020.
There was a change made to the qualifying session: The next marble will start rolling down a qualifying lap only after the previous marble finishes. This change will be implemented in all future Marbula One events, starting from this Grand Prix.
The first to go in this qualifying session was Rojo Uno of the Rojo Rollers. Despite his best efforts, he set a qualifying lap of 22.16 seconds, which was far from enough to get into the top half of the grid. Momo of Team Momo failed to replicate his dominance in the qualifying session of the first Grand Prix. His qualifying lap was 22.79 seconds, which was quite disappointing for the host team.
Clutter of the Balls of Chaos became the first marble to have broken through the 22-second mark in this qualifying session. With an incredible qualifying lap of 21.05 seconds, he remained in the front row of the grid. This was not the case of Vespa of the Hornets, however. She performed really poorly this time and set an awful qualifying lap of 23.75 seconds, eventually making her start from the back of the grid.
Sublime of the Limers managed to make up for his poor performance at the first GP by setting a remarkable qualifying lap of 21.12 seconds. Likewise, Prim of Team Primary dominated this qualifying session and beat Clutter's time by four-hundredths-a-second. This put him in the pole position, beside Clutter in the front row. With this, Prim was ready to avenge his failure to make it onto the podium at the first GP.
Snowy of the Snowballs surprised the audience by performing very poorly in this session. In fact, he was the only other marble besides Vespa to have failed to break through the 23-second mark, and thus joining her in the back row of the grid. He was only thirteen-hundredths-a-second ahead of Vespa. Hazy of the Hazers, who was the last to go in this session, managed to replicate the early success of his team in this racing tournament by performing exceptionally this time. He was tied with Sublime for the qualifying lap time. However, he had an advantage over Sublime at the individual points standings, and would thus start in third.
