Drivers points are as follows:

TQ in each class = 1 bonus point.

1st in each class = 100 points, 2nd 99, 3rd 98 and so on.

Club points will be scored in the same way as drivers points and added together, so if you score 100 points you will also score 100 points for your club. Drivers will not be able to swap clubs once they have entered the series. The first entry they make will determine the club they are racing for. A club trophy will be awarded at the end of the season to the club with the most points.

A driver must complete at least 1 lap in their final in order to score championship points.
