Race series trial and development

Following the popularity of the winter trial races in 2010, we extended and develop the race series concept in subsequent years to see if it proves workable and enjoyable. This is still something of an ongoing experiment so please feel free to pass on any feedback to Michael or any Committee member.

The main features of the system are explained below along with the points awarded.

Results will be posted on a week-by week basis on the club noticeboard and (hopefully) online.

It is intended that this system will allow a fleet of varying size to compete over a number of weeks, in such a way that encourages participation but does not penalise those who cannot race regularly. Not all victories are the same - smaller less well attended races will earn the participants points, but winning the larger races will earn more points. It is in the Officer Of the Day's best interest to encourage race entry, and he is now not disadvantaged by being absent from the racing fleet. The podium finish positions (first, second, third) are rewarded proportionally more than subsequent finish positions (ie fourth, fifth, sixth).
