  • Positions will be award based on chip times were applicable and then used to calculate age grading.

Scoring

The scoring system for the 2017 Championship will be based on an Age Graded system. Completion of a Championship Race earns you one point followed by the additional points for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, however unlike previous years your position in a race will be based on your age grade and not overall race position. The aim is to close the gap between runners and make the championship more competitive.

Look out for wildcards!
