Points System

One of the challenges in scoring the points value of races where tracks may have vastly different car counts, is how to go about weighting the result.  SCORA uses a simple formula.  If you race two other cars, you will not receive as high a score as someone placing the same in a ten car race.  We also want to reward race wins, without it creating an insurmountable lead.  Winners get a one point bonus.

Points for finishing positions

  • 1 – 20 plus car count
  • 2 – 18 plus car countscora
  • 3 – 17 plus car count
  • 4 – 16 plus car count
  • 5 – 15 plus car count
  • 6 – 14 plus car count
  • 7 – 13 plus car count
  • 8 – 12 plus car count
  • 9 – 11 plus car count
  • 10 – 10 plus car count

Keep deducting 1 point as you go down the finishing positions.

Examples:

  1. Driver A wins a 5 car SCORA sanctioned race.  They receive 25 points.
  2. Driver B places 5th in a 10 car SCORA sanctioned race.  They receive 25 points.

A side benefit is that racers who want more points will help recruit racers for your track.
