Porsche - Race Format and Points Structure

Race Format and Points Structure

The championship consists of three categories, based on the drivers’ pace and experience: Professional, Professional-Amateur, and Amateur. In addition, all new drivers to the Championship are automatically entered into a Rookie Class, where they compete to win up to an additional £35,000. Finally, there is a team championship where each team assigns a maximum of two drivers to score points for them throughout the season.

Points are awarded based on finishing positions across the respective classes, and over £350,000 is awarded in prize money over the course of each season.

Race Format

To intensify the competition, for 2018 we have made significant changes to the race format for the Pro category by introducing a reverse grid for Race 2 of each championship weekend.

As before, each driver’s fastest qualifying time will determine their place on the starting grid.

Race 1

This changes from previous seasons as the finishing order of the first race will determine the starting grid for the second race of each weekend. This new format works as follows:

Race 2

After Race 1 a number between four and six will be selected at random.

This number designates whether the first four, five or six drivers over the line of the first race will have their grid positions reversed for the second race. So, if the number drawn at random is four, the winner of Race 1 would start in fourth place, the driver that came second would start in third place, the driver that came third would start in second place, and the driver that came fourth would be elevated to pole position.

All other competitors will be allocated their starting position according to their finishing order in Race 1.

Both Race 1 and Race 2 will now have standing starts.

In addition to accruing Championship Points, each driver within the Professional-Amateur and the Amateur Categories are awarded points based on their finishing positions in class. These points are used to calculate the Pro-Am and Am points tables, respectively.

New Points Structure

Qualifying

Drivers that set the fastest lap time within their category during qualifying at each race weekend will be awarded two championship points.
