Point Score Rules


2024 revisions have been made to add greater value to the HTCAV Championship.
Please note that members must be financial at the time of racing to score points in the championship.

1. The HTCAV Championship is scored over the nominated events published in the Calendar at the beginning of each year. No championship points or race trophies will be awarded to a competitor whose car does not comply with the 5th Category Group N Requirements as described in the Motorsport Australia Manual.

2. Your 5 best events count towards the Championship.

3. You get 5 participation points (min: taking part in qualifying or one race) for Historic meetings and 3 for others. Nominated ‘Special’ race meetings may attract double points.

4. Cars taking part in qualifying, or not qualifying but starting in a subsequent race, are counted as starters in every race: ie: if there are 4 cars in qualifying, then each race is scored as if there were 4 cars in it.

5. Fastest lap in class, in a an event, earns 1 extra point when more than 1 
car racing in your class.

6. A maximum of 3 race results are counted at a meeting. Where there are more than 3 races at a meeting, the last 3 only will be counted.

7. A competitor penalised by the Stewards for a driving standards infringement will not score points for that relevant race. Multiple infringements or further penalties from the Stewards will disqualify the competitor from scoring any points for that meeting.

8. 8 points are awarded to ALL finishers in handicap races.

9. In Division 1/Division 2 racing or if a car runs in a different capacity class, results are assessed on lap times. If rain or other factors alter conditions in different races, an equivalence assessment is applied.

10. Points scored in different classes are not combined in your total Championship count.

11. Class placings will be based on points scored in a minimum of 3 events and a minimum of 2 cars competing in that class during the year. (Note: Meeting trophies may be awarded to class competitors at the discretion of the HTCAV committee in recognition of significant competition results for that class at any of the rounds.)

12. Interstate (not your home state) points may be included for 1 meeting only. 3 points will be awarded for participation, race points will be scored against all cars in your class at that meeting. It is a competitors responsibility to supply the timing sheets and notify the point score officer before the last event of the year.

13. Some timing system results do not have car make, class or capacity listed meaning it can not be scored easily. If the competitor wants to include these results they need to complete the sheets with car make, class and capacity.

14. In the event of a tie, a count-back of superior placings will determine the Club Champion.
