SUNOCO CHALLENGE POINTS SYSTEM EXPLAINED

The Sunoco Whelen Challenge and Sunoco 200 Challenge are administered individually by Anglo American Oil Company. Points are awarded as illustrated in the table below. The driver taking pole position gains 20 points as does the driver setting fastest lap and 100 points awarded for a win. This means that a driver who has a perfect score would walk away from a race with 140 points.

  • Points are awarded for race result, pole position and fastest lap (in a two driver/car situation both drivers get points for race result but the pole position and fastest lap points are given to the racer that gains them).
  • All points are divided between the number of races in a season, to create an average score for each racer - this creates a level playing field, so for example someone with only an 8 race season can compete on equal terms with someone who has a fifteen race season - highest average overall wins!
  • Races starting with less than 10 cars get a percentage of the number of cars competing (i.e. a race with 7 cars means that points awarded are multiplied with 70%).
  • One driver in a two race format - should the driver register for the Sunoco Challenges and single handed compete in a Championship designed for two drivers, he/she will be awarded 90% of the earned points.

Example

Every race in a series calendar counts. For example if a Britcar competitor scores a total of 850 points for the season and a Britcar season is made up of 10 races his average points per race equals 85. Also if a British F3 driver scores 1800 points throughout 2011 over a 20 race calendar his average score will be 90 i.e. the British F3 driver wins.
