For 2022 NHRCCC is hosting the NZRCA EP on road national champs.
We have opted to utilise heads up points (Round Robin) racing rather than the traditional 3-5 rounds of qualifying, and three rounds of finals.
Depending on entries we will have a maximum of 8 rounds of racing for the 6 classes.
How this will look like an example.
40 Entries for "A" class. That is split into 4 heats of 10.
Driver A In round 1 starts heat 1 from P1, but in round 2 Driver A could start P10 heat 4
Each round the drivers should be racing someone different at least once (if there are more than 3 heats per class).
The winner is determined by points. Points per heat are
1 point 1st place
2-point 2nd place
3-point 3rd place
4 points for 4th place etc
Results are determined by combining the points from a driver's best 6 out of 8 rounds. In the event of a tie, the most wins in highest position will be used for tie breaks.
Heats and Grids.
A maximum of 10 cars per heat.
Grids will be side by side rows measuring 1.5 meters from the front of the proceeding car to the front of following cars grid position.
All classes will run 5 minutes plus the time to complete final lap heats.
All Heats and classes will be grid start with lap 1 counting as a lap.
