How do the points for the series work?
is it all 4 (or 5 or however many ) rounds to count, or best 3 out of 4 or what?
And what are the classes??

I got here late last season and didn't really know what was going on.

If I remember right all races counted towards points. I believe classes were at Calgary last year was.

Touring Stock
Touring Mod
12th Pan Stock
12th Pan Mod
10th Pan Stock
Gearbox

I think 12th and Touring will be at all races. 10th and gear box depends on entries and if each club would like to run those classes.

12th mod is 10 turn limit too, Right? Who thought the day would come that you can run 10 or lower turn motor in 12th and make run time.

What I have seen 12th mod can run any motor. With 3300's now you might make run time with a 8 or 9 turn motor. And I thought because of touring running lower that 10 turn motors thats why the rule was put in. I don't think anyone made rules for the series. I don't think we need many. Things ran smooth last year and everyone had a great time. I think the clubs should set rules for the races in thier town.

I don't think there are a written set of rules anywhere. Last year any TC body was run(2 or 4 dr), foam tires, and a 10 turn limit in mod TC. There was no teching for anything that I can recall.

I'm still unsure of how points are counted, and how a series winner is determined tho. Anyone have any clarification on this?

Post Rules

Gary, Check with Don J. back when dinasaurs roamed the earth their were some actual written rules. Steve Tang may have them. No doubt they are due for some revision.

Hi all,
To answer Gary's question about points.
TQ gets 1 point
A main winner gets 100 points
second in A main gets 99
third gets 98
this continues to count down until the last car in that class has scored points.

In the past City points were counted for all drivers that competed in at least 2 events for the best average score and total score.

Sportsman was decided by drivers who made all the races in the series.

Last year there was no drop

hope this clears this up for you

Mike
