The series winner in each category shall be the rider with the highest aggregate points score from his/her best four rides in the series. Attendance at the final round is not mandatory but is encouraged.
Once the winner of a series category crosses the line to finish, all other riders in the same category shall finish their race when they next cross the line. Lapped riders should not complete additional laps, but will be classified according to their position after those riders in the same lap as the winner.
In the event that the Commissaire President opts to apply the 80% rule, eliminated riders will be classified according to their final position at the appropriate number of laps.
Riders who abandon, who fail to cross the line after the category winner, or are not classified under the 80% rule, shall not be classified.
National Series Points Scoring
The first 40 finishers in each category will receive series points as follows: 60, 56, 52, 49, 46, 43, 40, 38, 36, 34, 32, 30, 28, then reducing by one point per place to 40th place.
The best four scores will count towards the overall points result.
