We will be running the Nitro X Cross summer series over 16 rounds with the best 9 to count.
This year will continue to run an Inter Club series with points being awarded not only to the drivers but also to the participating clubs with the club with the most points being awarded a series trophy.
The format will run as follows:
16 rounds with the best 9 results to count.
No Controlled Tyres
4 rounds of 5 minute qualifiers with best 2 to count (RBR)
A Final 25 Minutes
All other nitro finals 20 Minutes and E-Buggy final 15 mins (finals may be shortened if bad weather) .
No Saturday practice. All meetings this year will be held on Saturday & Sunday.
Points format as follows:
Points awarded for Final finishing position. 1 bonus point for TQ
Points awarded to each club member will count towards their clubs total. 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.
For Example FTD 1 point A Final win 100 points = 101 driver points and 101 club points. If you do not complete 1 lap of your final you will not be awarded any points. If you have bumped from a lower final but not completed a lap in your higher final you will still be awarded points from your original Final.
Booking in will open 1 day after the previous round and close on the Friday prior to the event. All booking in will take place through the NitroXCross website and a drivers list will be visible to all. The cost is £12 per person per round or £20 for both rounds of the weekend. You can also book in on the day but the cost is £15 per round and you will be entered into heat 1 regardless of ability so please try to book in early so that each club can cater for the correct amount of entries. £2 from each one day entry or £5 from a weekend entry will be held by Nitro X Cross and put towards end of season trophies, the rest of your entry fee goes to the club hosting the event. The more entries we receive the better the end of season trophies!
Event trophies are also provided by Nitro X Cross for the summer series.
