Historic Racing is Class Racing, so outright results are not scored, Class results are.Points are awarded in each Class, eg Group Fa, Fb and Fc, and in Group N engine classes as well, eg Group Nb 1300-1600cc.For all the classes, see last year’s Historic Queensland Programme, where they’re all listed (pages 10-11) and the engine classes in the Lap Records on page 26-27, or go to https://www.hrcc.org.au/race%20groups.htm .At a Race Meeting, Points are awarded for Qualifying, for starting each Race or Regularity Trial, and all finishers receive more points on a sliding scale, for placings within their class. So, because we need to run multiple classes in most events, you might come 7th in your race but still score maximum points for a Class win! You can also see that running in all available events adds up the points.At a Supersprint or Hillclimb, Points are awarded for each start, plus a sliding scale for the best result within your class over the event.The Don Thallon Cup (for Historic Touring Cars, Group N) points are the HRCC Points plus a similar score for State Championship Race Meetings, with engine classes under- and over- 2litre. This award encourages participation in the Group N class at State Championship events, as well as HRCC’s events.Pointscoring events for 2019 are shown in the table below -Class Champions must have competed in at least two HRCC events during the year, but you can see that competing in more HRCC events gives a higher likelihood of winning your Class Championship. Competing in more than one car / class during the year adds up for the outright HRCC Club Champion score, too.Hope this encourages you to try some of the events you’ve been missing out on!See you at the track!Peter WalshVice president
