Each Rally Championship competitor will have the possibility of accumulating
points in ten categories (driver or co-driver in Open 4wd, CRS-2, CRS-5, CRS GT
and Performance Stock Classes). Driver’s points cannot be added to co-driver’s
points or vice versa. In other words all classes are tabulated independently.
Organizer’s points will be counted in only one class, which the organizer
chooses at the time of his/her event.
Speed Factors At National Events
CRS speed factors are based on the fastest driver on each stage. For National events
the fastest driver is given a 1.00 and all others are calculated from that time
(StageSpeedFactor = ET / FastTime). A driver's Event Speed Factor is determined by
dropping his worst two and his best Stage Speed Factors until there are less than
four stages left and then averaging the remaining Stage Speed Factors. Drivers must
complete at least four stages to get an Event Speed Factor.
Speed Factors At Regional-Only Events
At Regional Only events speed factors are calculated exactly the same, except the
reference driver generally does not get a 1.00, but the speed factor he started the
event with. Hence the StageSpeedFactor = RefSpeedFactor * ET / RefTime). The reference
driver for each stage is the one of the top two (for that stage) that produces the
larger Stage Speed Factor.
CRS points will be awarded to all CRS members who start the first stage of the
rally. For championship purposes points will be awarded based on the competitor’s
finishing position in his/her class (Open 4wd, CRS-2, CRS-5, CRS GT or Performance
The organizers of the event will have 400 points to distribute
amongst themselves, with no organizer getting more than 100 points (prior to
weighting). No competitor can receive more than a total of 500 organizer’s
points in a given year. Organizer points will be assigned at the time the CRS
standings are first tabulated for that event. Organizers that are not eligible
for year end awards (because they have not competed in that class), will be
identified in the standings.

Event Weighting (Coefficients)
To properly reward the competitors who do well on the longer, more demanding
events these events will receive heavier weighting. For example, 1st in class
in a double points event awards 200 points, in a triple points event 300 points.
Events with less than 30 stage miles and less than 30 minutes of stage time will
be single points events. Events with over 65 stage miles or 60 minutes of stage
time will be triple point events. Those in between will be double points events.
Since it is desirable to allow competitors to drop their worst events, the following
system for dropping events has been adopted for use by the CRS:
|Total Number of
Events in Series
In the event of a tie at an event, all competitors tied for a position will
be given the points for the tied position. The next placing competitor will
be awarded points appropriate for the number of places below the tie. Example:
A three way tie for second will give all the tied teams 2nd place points (88),
and the next placing team will get 5th place points (58).
In the event of a tie for a year-end ranking the tie will be broken by comparing
the total points accumulated in triple points events at which both competitors
started in the class in question. All events started will be counted (no events
will be dropped). If this does not resolve the tie the same method will be applied
to the double points events. If a tie still exists the same method will be applied
to the single points events. If the above method fails, the tie will remain.
