Trophies 
Trophies will be awarded to the top 6 in each class on the day, A,B and C groups, vets and 85s big and small. ( Rookies will get trophies if they are top 6 in the group they race in, there is no separate trophies just for rookies ).

Championship trophies will be awarded to top 12 in adult classes and any qualifying youth rider. You will need to compete at a minimum of 7 rounds although this will be adjusted accordingly if rounds are lost for whatever reason. It will always be at least 50% of the rounds. Riders who don't qualify will be removed from the standings after the last round and qualifying riders will be moved up to fill those spaces. A rider must be a club member to score championship points.

All rounds will count towards the overall standings.

Points System
Each race for all classes uses the same points system based on the finishing position as follows: 1st place gets 45 points, 2nd gets 42, 3rd gets 39, 36, 33, 30, 27, 25, 23, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16 down to one point. If a tie occurs it is the last race result which will decide the winner. If a tie results in the championship after the last round have been run the winner will be decided by the last rounds result.

A, B C groups (including Rookies)
A practice/timed qualification session will be run in the morning to determine which class riders will race in.

Championship points are awarded from each individual race rather than the overall position. Should two riders finish the event with equal points it is the third race result which will determine the overall finishing position.

Veterans Championship
The Vets Championship is open to all riders over the age of 40 on any class of machine. The Vets championship runs separately to the solo main and will be in the form of a timed practice and 3 races at each round with points awarded per race to all finishers. Championship points are awarded from each individual race rather than the overall position. Should two riders finish the event with equal points it is the third race result which will determine the overall finishing position.

Expert Championship
Only riders who qualify for the A-Group can score points in the Expert Championship and points are awarded per race, based on the rider's finishing position. If you fail to qualify for A group as an expert member, you will not score points at that event.

Clubman Championship
The Clubman Championship is open to all solo riders with the following exclusions;
Any rider who has finished in the top 12 of the Expert Championship in the previous season is excluded.
Any Clubman Champion from the previous 3 years is excluded.

The top clubman finisher is awarded a points total based on the double number of clubman members. So, if we have 100 clubman members, the first placed clubman at each event will score 200 points, the next clubman finisher is awarded 198 and then in two point increments down to the last finisher who will receive 1 point. The last placed clubman finisher in the A-Group will receive 2 points more than the winner of B-group and last in B- group will score 2 points more than the winner of C- group. Championship points for the clubman are awarded on the days overall result, not individual races.

Rookie and 85cc Championships
The Rookie and 85cc championships consist of timed practice and 3 races at each round. Each rider is awarded championship points per race. Should two riders finish the three races with equal points it is the third race result which will determine the overall finishing position.
