We need to decide on the points scale to use for our races so I can post current points standings.

Here is what I have found so far:

--------------------------------

The Washington DC club uses this:

Points system:
1st Place = 10 Points
2nd Place = 8 Points
3rd Place = 6 Points
4th Place = 5 Points
5th Place = 4 Points
6th Place = 3 Points
7th Place = 2 Points
8+ Places = 1 Point

Top Qualifier for each race gets an additional point for that race.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The GA Championship series (10th scale) used this points system last year:

1st Place: 100pts
2nd Place: 99pts
3rd Place: 98pts
4th Place: 97pts, and so on in the same 1 point intervals.

The Top Qualifier for each class will be given 1 bonus point.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another possibility would be to base our system on a 20 point scale like we talked about at our last race. It could look something like this:

1st Place: 20 pts
2nd Place: 18 pts
3rd Place: 16 pts
4th Place: 15, and so on in 1 point intervals.

Top Qualifier in each class would get an additional 1 point bonus.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please let me know what you think. I think I like the 20 point system. I set the gaps between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to 2 points. I don't believe we want the spread between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to be too much since we do not have that many races. If it were more than a few points, it might be difficult for another driver to catch the next driver ahead of them (I'm not actually sure if this is a good reason or not). Anyway, notice that the GA Championship series had no point gaps between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

Please post your opinions then we will collectively decide.

Thanks,
-Patrick

No comments? Going once... going twice....

If none, I'll post the points tonight using the 20 points system.

The 20 points system sounds good to me .

I kind of like the 10 point system. But anything after eighth should get zero points just to be mean.
