Championship & Regional Championship Points Scoring System

The series will consist of 5 rounds with the best 3 to count to your overall championship score


Championship points for the 2020 season will be awarded for final position only with one bonus point awarded to the TQ driver (this is a change from previous years where points were awarded on both qualifying and final positions and has been brought in to bring us more into line with the national series. The winner of each Championship will be the driver that has the best 3 from 5 overall scores, that is of the five rounds of each class, your best three scores will go towards your overall Championship position and also your 2021 Formula grade.

Drivers are reminded that although they can race in more than one region they can only score Regional Championship points in one! They must inform the club officials they are scoring points in another region at the time of booking into the meeting. These drivers must be removed from the regional finals and be placed in the open class finals.

Junior Classes:
