2017 Series Points Calculations
- Series Points Structure and Points Qualification Rules
|Did Not Start (DNS)||8|
|Did Not Finish (DNF)||8|
Example: A rider winning each of their Motos and the A Final will score 4+4+4+42 = 54 Series Points
- Riders will qualify for points as indicated in the table above.
- Moto points are given to riders for each of their three Motos.
- Where classes are combined (e.g. one class has less than eight riders) the points will be awarded as follows;
- Moto points as per each rider’s actual finishing position in each Moto.
- Final points for the main class will be awarded according to their finishing position after the combined class riders have been removed.
- Final points for the combined class will be awarded according to their finishing position in their own class i.e. a rider finishing 6th in a B final will be awarded 1st place points if he is the first placed rider in that class.
- Where a combined class exceeds 8 riders the class is treated as one race class for the purposes of transferring to following rounds. Combined class riders are not removed from the racing except by natural race elimination.
- Where two combined classes gives 8 or less riders their finishing position will be calculated at the completion of all races as shown.
- When there are eight riders or less in a class, the riders shall compete as one group and race 3 Motos with the points awarded for each placing plus a 4th GP Final Race with “A” Final series points awarded on the results of the combined four races.
- Where riders in the final qualification places are tied on points, the tie will be decided by the rider’s best finish in the preceding qualifiers. The tie breaker will be decided in descending order starting with the 3rd, then the 2nd and then the 1st Moto finish result. If result is still tied then a run-off between the tied riders will take place.
- In classes with semi-finals the riders finishing in 5th – 8th places will compete in a “B” Final.
- Riders who are tied on series points will be separated using a count back system. The rider with the highest individual result will be ranked higher. This process will continue until the riders can be split. If the series standing cannot be sorted by this method, then the software will use alphabetical order.
