  • GENERAL COMPETITION RULES

    Each qualifying round will be run under its own Supplementary Regulations (“SRs”) and competitors will be bound by those SRs, the General Competition Regulations of the Motorsport UK and these Championship Regulations.

    1. DOUBLE ENTRIES

      Competitors may enter no more than two cars in a Championship and no more than two drivers may drive the same car. A competitor may not enter more than one car in the same class. A car may not be entered in more than one class.

    3. VEHICLE SUBSTITUTION

      A competitor may substitute another vehicle during the course of a Championship provided the substitute vehicle is in the same class as the original entry. There will be no limit to the number of substitutions that can be made. However, the competitor must notify the Championship Co-ordinator or Deputy in writing of any substitution before the commencement of competition runs for the event in which the substitute vehicle is to be used, or no Championship score will be credited to that competitor in the substitute.

APPENDIX A – SCORING

    1. SCOTTISH SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP – SCORING SYSTEM AND AWARDS

      1. QUALIFYING SCORE

        Qualifying Scores will be determined by a competitor’s best nine results at Championship events. However, at the end of the Championship, if fewer than 12 events have been organised and run then the maximum number of each competitor’s results that count shall be reduced accordingly – eg, if only 11 events have been organised and run at the end of the Championship, then a competitor’s eight best scores will count etc. But if fewer than nine events have been organised and run at the end of the season, up to four of a competitor’s best scores will count.

        Competitors must be classified as a Finisher at an event (in accordance with S9.5.5 of the current Motorsport UK Yearbook) to be eligible for point scoring from that event.

        Unless stated otherwise, awards will be decided on the competitor’s QUALIFYING SCORE only, based on the betterment of class records for each circuit. The fastest competition run at each qualifying round shall count for championship points, irrespective of the number of competitive runs taken at individual events.

        Points will be awarded following each event based on the following calculation:

        Class Record x 100 /Competitor Best Time

        Where no previous record exists for a class, the new record will be used as the basis of this calculation.

        For events with a different class structure the Scottish Class Structure records will be used for scoring purposes. The Sprint Champion will be the competitor with the highest QUALIFYING SCORE, irrespective of class.

      2. TIE DECIDING

        In the event of a tie for an award, the competitor with the best improvement on an existing class record at any round will be the winner. If this does not produce a result, the second best improvement will be considered, then the third and so on, until a result is achieved.

      3. QUALIFYING FINISHERS

        At the end of the season, all those registered competitors who have competed in any of the Championship rounds run will be eligible for inclusion in the final results. To be classed as a Qualifying Finisher, registered competitors must have competed in a minimum of four Championship Rounds. Awards will be restricted to Qualifying Finishers.

      4. ‘TOP TEN’ CHAMPIONSHIP

        In addition to the Overall Sprint Championship based on the championship scoring system, there will be a separate competition based on points awarded for the best times achieved by registered drivers during the Championship timed runs at each of the Championship rounds. Points will be awarded as follows: 15 points for fastest time of the day, 12 points for the second fastest, 10 for third and 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 for the remaining seven positions respectively. The Top Ten Competition winner will be the competitor who accrues the highest aggregate score on this basis from the same number of events as their Qualifying Score in the Overall Sprint Championship. In the event of a tie, the higher number of first places within the rounds used to calculate the Championship Qualifying Score will decide the winner. If this fails to resolve the tie, then the number of second places, and so on until the tie is resolved. In the event this still does not produce a clear winner dropped scores will then be used to resolve the tie.

      5. AWARDS

        With the exception of the Tom McCubbin Trophy and Fraser Bell Trophy, these awards only apply to Qualifying Finishers, Where more than 1 award is won by a competitor,these will be listed on the trophy awarded for the highest achievement

        Qualifying Scores will be determined by a competitor’s best nine results at Championship events. However, at the end of the Championship, if fewer than 13 events have been organised and run then the maximum number of each competitor’s results that count shall be reduced accordingly – eg, if only 12 events have been organised and run at the end of the Championship, then a competitor’s eight best scores will count etc. But if fewer than eight events have been organised and run at the end of the season, up to four of a competitor’s best scores will count.

        Competitors must be classified as a Finisher at an event (in accordance with S9.5.5 of the current Motorsport UK Yearbook) to be eligible for point scoring from that event.

        At all events, points will be awarded to Registered Competitors only. As far as this Championship is concerned all non-registered competitors’ placings are ignored. The fastest competition run at each qualifying round shall count for Championship, Division and Class points, excluding British Championship runoffs and irrespective of the number of competitive runs taken at individual events. For events where there is a different class structure, the Scottish Class Structure as per these regulations will be used for scoring purposes.

        1. Scoring – Championship

        2. Scoring – Division

      2. TIE DECIDING

        A tie will be resolved by considering the higher number of first places within the rounds used to calculate the drivers Championship, Division or Class Qualifying Score. If this fails to resolve the tie, then the number of second places will be considered, and so on until the tie is resolved. In the event this still does not produce a clear winner, dropped scores will then be used in order to resolve the tie.

    3. SCOTTISH SPEED CHAMPIONSHIP – SCORING SYSTEM AND AWARDS

      1. QUALIFYING SCORE

        Qualifying Scores will be determined by a competitor’s best eight results at Championship events. However, at the end of the Championship, if fewer than 12 events have been organised and run then the maximum number of each competitor’s results that count shall be reduced accordingly – eg, if only 11 events have been organised and run at the end of the Championship, then a competitor’s seven best scores will count etc. But if fewer than eight events have been organised and run at the end of the season, up to four of a competitor’s best scores will count.

        Qualifying Scores will be calculated to include at least one score from a sprint and one score from a hillclimb.

        Competitors must be classified as a Finisher at an event (in accordance with S9.5.5 of the current Motorsport UK Yearbook) to be eligible for point scoring from that event.

      2. POINTS SYSTEM

        Points will be awarded to all registered competitors, as appropriate to the class position achieved in the published final results for each round, and according to the following table:

        Number in Class

        1st

        2nd

        3rd

        Four or more Finishers

        5

        4

        3

        Three Finishers

        4

        3

        2

        Two Finishers

        3

        2

        One Finisher

        2

        For events where there is a different class structure, the Scottish Class Structure as per these regulations will be used for scoring purposes.

        6 points will be awarded where an established class record is broken, and as advised by the organising club, irrespective of the number of competitors.

      3. TIE DECIDING

        In the event of a tie for any award, the competitor with the greatest number of ‘6’ scores in the course of the season will be judged the winner. If this does not produce a result, then ‘5’ etc. scores will be considered until a result is achieved.

      4. QUALIFYING FINISHERS

        At the end of the season, all those registered competitors who have competed in any of the Championship rounds run will be eligible for inclusion in the final results. To be classed as a Qualifying Finisher, registered competitors must have been classified as a Finisher at both a sprint and a hillclimb event. Awards will be restricted to Qualifying Finishers.

      5. AWARDS

The overall Champion will be the person scoring the highest number of points and will receive the Shell Scottish Speed Championship Quaich (held for one year) and a trophy.
