Allocation of POINTS for the MX-5 Club Qld Car Enthusiast Events



The program contains Fourteen (14) events

Hopefully it’ll be something for everyone.  Our old Sprint Competition has now been extended to include Autocross, Motorkhana, Hill Climb, Sprints, Regularity, Karting, Skid Pan and Happy Laps.  Most events are now run on weekends.

Our 2019 events have no mention of NA, NB, NC, ND & Other makes.

You will compete in car Classes from 1600 cc and under to Race.  (Please refer to: ‘MX-5 Club Classes 2018’ under the Motorsport section)  Each class winner will get an end of year trophy.  There will be 9 in all and WON’T be MX-5 Exclusive!!

Regularity: Where Official Regularity Track Timing is available and working i.e. QR & LS, I will gather the appropriate time sheets and apportion points to each driver in their particular Class.  If this method isn’t available I will consult Natsoft timing. 

We will continue this standard format alongside a Regularity Speed Format.  There will also be 100 points for Registered participants at each event plus additional points for competing. Your accumulated points for 2 Regularity runs may look like this: 100 (Registered participant’s points) + 15 (1st in class) + 13 (3rd in class = 128 Total.  (For a complete explanation please refer to ‘Regularity Competition 2019’ under the Motorsport section).

Regularity Speed Format: Cars will be grouped in Class – fastest to the front – same as a Sprint (for safety sake).  Points will be awarded to each vehicle according to the difference between the fastest and slowest lap time (I.e. Tslow – Tfast)  Highest points will be allocated to the lowest number of seconds.  15 points for 1st in Class, 14 for 2nd to 0 for last place.  To score the points each driver will have to give me (at the track or e-mail later) the Tslow – Tfast for their BEST run.  The out lap is NOT included.  I will gather this information and apportion points to each driver in their particular Class. Your accumulated points for 5 runs may look like this: 100 + 15 + 12+ 14 + 14 + 13 = 168.  You are only competing against drivers in your Class.  Your competitors may not all be in your run group.

This year we started the ‘5 Perfect Laps’ Competition where any competitor can win an exclusive trophy and cap at the end of the day.  To participate each driver needs to bring brings me there best time of 5 labs – any session (Ts – Tf). The one closest to 0.00 secs wins.  Best run is calculated same as Regularity Speed Format above.

NOTE: In either Regularity format, electronic and mechanical timing aids will NOT be permitted. They will have to be taped over, turned off or surrendered before going on track.

Hopefully you are now getting the picture.  It doesn’t matter how fast your car is.  The competition revolves around participation and how well you drive. 

Standard and Speed Regularity can be adapted to any track depending on what computer timing formats is available.

100 Points will be allocated to all Registered Starters for each of the fourteen (14) MX-5 Club Qld 2019 Motorsport Events - even if you have a mechanical or medical issue that doesn’t allow you to start.
