What happens on breakout?
Once allocated to a class the competitor remains in that class unless he/she breaks out or applies to the committee to change class.
A class change to a higher class will be immediate upon breaking the lap time for the class for classes B- D. For example: if you are in class C and you record a time in qualifying, race1 or race2 faster than 1m8.0s you will automatically move up a class to class B and be scored as such for the day.
A Competitor may after the race meeting apply to the committee in writing, supported by good reason, to change from a higher class back to a lower class for the following event (ie from Class B to Class C). The same immediate breakout rule (4.4.5 above) will still apply.
Class A and Class D: If a competitor records a lap time faster than the laptime specified in point4.4.1 above in qualifying by more than 0.5sec or in race1 by 0.001sec a 5 place penalty will be imposed for the grid of the next race. If in race 2 a competitor breakout by more than 0.001sec on any lap they will receive a time penalty of at least 1sec per racing minute which will be added to the total race time.
Points will be scored for each race separately and for each class separately. The points awarded will vary according to the number of competitors per class, as follows: 3 competitors or more in class: 10 8 6 5 4 3 2 1 1or2 competitors in a class: 6 5
All other competitors classified as finishers in the results published by the organisers of the meeting get 1 point.
All non-finishers get 1 point. To qualify to score points you have to complete a lap in any official timed session of the race meeting (practice, warm up, qualifying or a lap in either race).
