• To be introduced at this weekend’s 2019 season-opening Round 1 at Sonoma Raceway, the system will see 2 points awarded to the driver achieving the fastest lap during a race. This means a driver can gain 2 extra points even if they can’t progress up the field. Fastest Lap each race is determined by the official lap times as per the official timing and scoring of that race event by the sanctioning body for that race event. With 12 races on the calendar this season, it means there are an extra 24 points up for grabs in the Drivers’ Championship. It should lead to more exciting racing and also provide a new challenge for drivers chasing the championship.

 

  • Drivers are also reminded that they may drop two (2) Race Rounds while vying for the Season Championship. Drivers that miss a race weekend can choose to have those two (2) Race Rounds dropped from their Season Championship Points Total. Drivers that attend all 12 Race Rounds will have their two (2) lowest points total Race Rounds automatically dropped from their Season Championship Points Total.
