How the 2018 Championship is scored

After another nail biting 2017 club championship, we present the next evolution of the NSWRRC Club Championship for the 2018 season. Points per session have been slashed to reduce the difference between first and third. This allows people to require less points to claw back points especially in multi vehicle classes.  

Continuing on from last year, we want to encourage the participation of individuals in the less glamorous side of motorsport, officiating! So how does all this look, please see below:

Super Sprints/Hill Climbs/Regularity:

We plan to move to a 4 round system moving forward. Your top 4 times (one per heat) on the day will be used rather than grading people at the same time. This allows you to make strategic calls on whether you want to save tyres or if you are waiting for the track to come to you. You can also use the extra sessions as practise sessions. It also rewards those who run the full 5 sessions using the first one to setup their cars.

No bonus points per heat for coming first as we did in 2016 as this saw too big a gap between 1st and 2nd. Scoring positions are 10 points for 1st, 9.5 for 2nd, and so on dropping by half a point. Thus if you come first in all your top times, you get 40 points, second is 38 and so on. There is already a built in bonus system.

But still, we thought there should be some reward for those in multi vehicle classes. The bonus point now only applies to the top driver in a class; they receive a 0.5 bonus point for beating everyone in their class by a minimum of 3 out of 4 sessions. This is low so as not to unfairly disadvantage those who don’t have anyone else in their class for no fault of their own. 

Drop Rounds:

You may drop 1 round in the championship if you volunteer your time to club as an Official. The club will determine how best to use you on the day. We have the 6 hour and two State rounds where you can volunteer you time.

Scenario 1: You enter all rounds and Volunteer

You get to drop your lowest scoring round and get a Bonus 20 points.

Scenario 2: You drop a round and Volunteer

Your missed round (score of zero) is dropped and you get a Bonus 20 points.

Scenario 3: You enter all rounds and don’t Volunteer

Your highest scoring round will be considered your drop round and will be deducted from your final score.

Scenario 4: You drop a round and don’t Volunteer

This scenario is probably the worst outcome as you will lose the round you dropped and your highest scoring round.

Any questions on this, please contact us.

Note: You need to be entered in the event as part of the club to gain points in the Championship.
