New rules for this year’s season
Drivers must compete in no less than four points-scoring rounds to be eligible for any of the championships of the Barbados Rally Club (BRC), but no retroactive adjustments of points will be made, should a competitor drop out part-way through the year.
The measure was among rule changes included in the 2020 championship regulations published in January which will now apply to this year’s shortened season.
In addition, no new championship entrants will be permitted after the fourth round and points will only be awarded when a competitor has completed all stages in a rally or 50 per cent of timed runs in a sprint event and ‘finishing’ a stage is defined as crossing the start line and finish line of the stage according to all regulations, in the process of recording an elapsed time.
And as the club released the drivers’ points standings ahead of Flow King of the Hill and Sol Rally Barbados next month, it said that an important change to the rules involves the method of settling a tie between two or more drivers in either the class or overall results. (TT)
