NKRA aim to run a National Championship to give the club driver a Championship that will not cost a fortune to do – we try to organise rounds within ordinary Club meetings that should not involve large entry fees, travel costs etc. We will again run a Southern Championship a Northern Championship & a Scottish Championship, offering superb trophies for each Championship. Qualifiers will be invited to attend our Grande Final (alternating between The North and the South, depending on the yearly involvement/amount of entries in each area), where the best from North England & Wales and South England & Wales will meet. The overall Winners receive magnificent trophies and awards and prizes…..
The Cost to You
The registration fee to join the Championship is £100. ( £90If you pay by the end of December 2023 ) These NKRA Championship rounds take place within the race weekend at Club events. As such there are no extra fees. The only fee you pay for the weekend’s racing is that of Club Members rates, which covers both Saturday practice and Sunday’s racing. The only stipulation is that the Sunday race entry fee must be paid in advance no later than 7 days before the event.
How Is It Scored?
All qualifying rounds score for the championship ( there is however, a 1 round drop option). In the event of a tie, the dropped score will come into Play. The Grande Final is held over two days, Saturday practice and Sunday Race Day. Competitors will be given 3 penalty points for each regional round in which they did not compete(less the drop option) these will count towards their overall score in the Grande Final. At these Grande Finals the lowest score wins.
- Pole= 1 point
- 2nd= 2 points
- 3rd = 3 points etc
- 4th = 4 points and so on……..
- to last place starter.
`B` Finalists carry on from end of `A` (eg. if 20 + 4 on grid in `A` , then `B` Final winner placed to back of `A` scores 21; 2nd =22; 3rd = 23 4th = 24; 5th in `B` Final scores 25; etc to last place) Race Results score: 1st = 0 points; 2nd = 2 points; 3 = 3points & so on to last place finisher, non qualifying `B` Finals carry on 1 point after last place in `A` Final. e.g. if 24 in `A` Final with 4 having moved up from `B` then 5th in `B` scores 25 points; 6th = 26 points etc.) Exclusions from Final = 50 points. Non attendance = 100 points. Thus 50 % of total score is dependant upon the race Result & 50 % upon qualification, allowing drivers who have poor heats or a problem in the final to still achieve a score.
