This will be adjusted if rounds are cancelled for whatever reason. 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.

Rounds lost due to bad weather will not be rescheduled other than to a planned backup date so the dates given pre season are set in stone.

The club uses race result transponders that can be purchased or hired through the club, they are priced at £80 and require no charging, and will last for approximately 6 years. Transponder hire will remain at £10 per day. Please note that my laps transponders will not work with our system .

Points System for races
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.

Groups A B C
A practise/timed qualification session will be run in the morning to determine which group a rider will race in on the day. There are three races per class (A, B and C) run on the day. 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.

Main Club Championship
Only solo riders who qualify for the A-Group score points in the Main Championship and points are awarded per race, based on the rider's finishing position minus non-members.

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 solo main championship in the previous season is excluded. Any Clubman champion from the previous 3 years is excluded. If you qualify for the A group you can only score points in one of the championships, either main or clubman, this is your choice(unless already excluded) and you must select this during membership sign up. If you qualify for the B or C group you will automatically be scored in the clubman.

The top clubman finisher in the A-Group is awarded a points total based on the total number of clubman riders at the meeting. For example, if there are 80 riders total, after removing any of the excluded riders (let's say all 12 top A riders of previous year and one clubman champion 80-13=67, so the top finisher would get 67 points, the next clubman finisher is awarded 66 and then in single increments down to the last finisher who will receive 1 point. Therefore, the last clubman finisher in the A-Group will receive 1 point more than the winner of B-Group. Championship points for the clubman are awarded on the days overall result not individual races.

Veterans Championship
The Vets Championship is open to all solo 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 practise and 3-legged motocross 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.

Rookies championship
Rookie riders will be racing in the A B C groups depending on where they qualify so their championship will be scored based on their overall positions across the three groups just like the adult clubman's championship is. For example with 30 rookie members, 10 in A, 10 B and 10 in C, first in A would score 30 points last in C would score 1point.

85cc Championships
The 85cc championships consists of a timed practise and 3 legged motocross 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.
