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.
As with last year there will be two junior classes competing within the main body of both the two and four wheel drive Regional Championships. They are Under 13, that is under the age of 13 as of 01 January 2020 and Under 16, that is under the age of 16 as of 01 January 2020. The top 3 juniors in each age group at each meeting will be awarded trophies. Championship trophies will be awarded at the end of the season for both age groups.
Veterans V40 and V50 will again have their results calculated at the end of the year with trophies for the top three in the championship as well as a shield for the winners.
ALL Juniors (both U13 and U16) will race for FREE at ALL BRCA ME Regional Championship rounds.
