SASOL GTC CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING & RACES
Each race weekend comprises of two (2) races, except where force majeure dictates otherwise or the GTC Africa organising committee allows.
Races shall be not less than 40 kilometres in length, and will be a rolling start. Starting positions for Race 1 and Race 2 shall be determined according to lap times recorded in official qualifying: competitors’ fastest lap shall apply for Race 1 and second fastest lap shall apply for Race 2.
There will be only one Champion in 2016, of which will be determined by the driver who has accumulated the greatest number of points during the season. The 2016 championship dates and venues are as per the MSA Motorsport Calendar or as stipulated in a MSA Circular.
Scoring: all races will be taken into account in determining the championship. Points will be scored in each race as follows:
1st – 50 points | 2nd – 38 points | 3rd – 28 points | 4th – 20 points | 5th – 14 points
6th – 9 points | 7th – 6 points | 8th – 4 points | 9th – 2 points | 10th – 1 point
Additional points shall be scored, according to the results of the qualifying session(s) to establish the grid positions for both races at all national championship race meetings:
Quickest time (pole position) – 5 points
2nd quickest time – 3 points
3rd quickest time – 1 point
Three (3) additional championship points shall be awarded to the driver setting the fastest lap time during each race. Should a race be classified as an “endurance”’ race, then the points for the race will be double the amount of any other race but not for fastest laps and not for qualifying.
