EXPLANATION OF FORMULA RACING:
You will enter the formula at the start of the season based on your year of birth. At the end of each week’s racing the top two/three riders from each formula will be promoted to the next formula with the bottom two/three riders being demoted down a formula. This is worked out automatically by the computer programme.
This gives riders the opportunity of taking part in more competitive racing where they will be racing against riders of a similar ability, rather than always racing riders of their own age.
However the points for trophies are worked out according to a rider’s age – for example there are six riders aged 14. They will all start off in Formula 3 and will be given place points according to the position they finish in. Over subsequent weeks it may be that one 14 year old progresses to Formula 2 and one 14 year old is demoted to Formula 4. If the 14 year old in formula 2 comes last in his/her race, they will still be awarded first place points for their age group as they are racing in a higher formula and so are ahead of the other riders who are the same age. Similarly if the 14 year old in formula 4 comes first in his/her race, they will be given last place points for their age group as they are in a lower formula. Place points are awarded as follows:
1st – 25 points
2nd – 22 points
3rd – 20 points
4th – 19 points
5th – 18 points
6th – 17 points
and so forth
If you would like a more detailed explanation about this or any other help on a Wednesday please do ask one of the committee.
