The point score will combine all classes into one. The results will be based on the normalised final results for each class. This means that anyone who consistently attends our events and finishes high up in the standings will be rewarded. The actual points allocation will be based on the system currently employed by the F3A World Cup events. If you finish first second or third in your class bonus points will be added to your score as per the tables below.
