SROC runs leagues for the RTV, CCV & Timed Trials events to determine who is the best driver over the course of a calendar year.
With all the rain we had at the start of the year it was a slow start, but now we are up and running. The current league standings as of the events we have run up to 17th June are here.
To encourage Members to help run events the Club runs a scheme whereby if you officiate at enough events throughout the year you will be entitled to a FREE item of Team Southern Clothing, which will be presented to you at the AGM the following year.
The Leagues are calculated from the final number of penalties declared at an event, irrespective of class, and are run on a 40 point system. The person coming first overall is given 40 points, second gets 38 points, third 36 points, fourth 35 points and then reducing by one point to 38th place. In Trials, drivers on the same score will only be separated by the number of clears they achieved throughout the day. If a tie occurs, the drivers will be allocated the higher value of points, i.e. if two drivers tie for first place, both will receive 40 points, unless a run off takes place and outright overall placings are declared. If the Event is an “Invitational”, and members of other ALRC clubs take part, the scores of the non SROC members will be removed from the results for League point purposes. If a driver has competed during the year in different classes they will have an entry in the League for each class, plus an entry for the total number of points they scored through-out the year. Any drivers that retire from an event will be considered to have come in joint last place for League point purposes, and will be allocated the appropriate number of points. If there were more than six events held in the year, a driver’s worst two scores for the year will be dropped when the final League positions are calculated for the Leagues. If there were six or less events held in the year, only the single worst score for the year will be dropped. If there are three events or less, no worse scores will be dropped, they will all count. Only those members who have competed in a League event will be shown in the League tables.
Any competitor needs to have qualified for each League they compete in to be eligible for any annual award. To qualify they need to have earned at least three League Qualification “ Points ” by officiating at Club events. As the different “Officials” duties require a varying degree of effort, the “Point” value for each role varies to recognise this as shown below: –
Maximum Per Normal Club Event
|Senior Clerk of the Course||1||3|
|Assistant Clerk of the Course||3||2|
|SROC First Aider||2||1|
|Marshal||As many as the CoC needs!||1|
The official is only deemed to have carried out their qualification duty by signing both on and off at an Event and declare which league they wish to qualify for. It is the official’s responsibility to ensure that they do this. Should they omit to sign on or off they can appeal to the committee in writing within one month of the event to have their points retrospectively added.
If an official does not declare which league they wish their points to be allocated to, the “League Coordinator” will make a best guess. (Primarily allocating points in the order RTV / CCV / Timed Trial.)
A driver does not have to carry out their qualification duty at an event that forms part of the Leagues they are competing in. Any club event that does not form part of a League can also be used for League qualification by the officials and if a driver wishes to qualify for more than one League then they are required to qualify separately for each League.
