Our current points system rewards finishers down to 23rd place. With an average attendance of 25, that seems a bit mean


We are proposing a new points system for 2012 that needs to be agreed tomorrow at the Annual General Meeting. And because we don't want the AGM to last more than 5 minutes, here's the proposed points system to have a look at:

160 - 130 - 110 - 90 - 80 - 70 - 60 - 55 - 50 - 45 - 40 - 35 - 30 - 28 - 26 - 24 - 22 - 20 - 18 - 16 - 14 - 12 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

As you can see, the top places (down to 7th) are the same. Then the increments change less steeply to take in the top 32 finishers - so everyone scores points, unless it's a bumper turn-out.

With juniors generally coming in the bottom two thirds of the field, it will tighten up their championships.

Any comments welcome.

Otherwise, everything remains the same, including the race fee - at £2.50, with a 50p reduction for bringing your own car. Any changes to the rules will be posted on the website soon after the December race.

We'll have the 2011 annual report and financial report to look at tomorrow, plus a ballot box to vote for the club's 2012 charity of the year

Andy - that seems a good tweak. I did something similar once national numbers started to increase.

The original system we are all working from was 16-13-11-9 etc, itself a modification of the old HOSRA system of 10-9-8-7 etc, which (typically) had zero dynamism to it.

Yes Andy that looks good to me, what about an extra point or 10 for the Fastest Time of the Day (FTD) might just spice it up.

The race fees remaining the same is a bargain, its got my vote.

Ok my last idea did not go down too well so I have another idea-------Not really to do with points but seemed a good place to post!!!!!! If a driver "false starts" why not penalise them by moving them back on track---i:e place offending car just after last corner.
Also if fastest lap times are introduced any chance of doing some sort of 3 lap qualifying session?

It was a short and sharp AGM last night. We decided the following:

1. Robin and Andy continue as the club's 'Organising Team' in 2012.
2. The Annual Report and the Financial Report were accepted (available on request).
3. Race fees for 2012 will be £2 if a racer brings their own car and £2.50 if not.
4. The points system to be extended to reward the top 32 drivers.
5. To donate one event's takings to the charity voted for tonight.
6. The rules for 2012 will be available on the website shortly after the December race.

The result of the vote was:

1st Help for Heroes
2nd We Play Too
3rd Crohn's & Colitis UK
=4th SASBAH & RAF Benevolent Fund

If you're interested we used an 'Instant Run-Off' system which ended with Help for Heroes on 10 votes and We Play Too on 7. Total votes cast were 19.

So, Help for Heroes will continue as the club charity for 2012

Oops. Were we supposed to score them in a 1-5 type way? I just ticked one and put my slip in the bag!

I wasn't particularly fussed which charity became our charity for the year as all of them are very worthy causes so in the end I went with one of the more local charities on the basis that it was local! I am so logical sometimes!


The AGM went very smoothly and was so much more enjoyable than the distantly remembered Scout AGMs from when I was a kid! Andrew's proposal of having the charity name on the club cars is brilliant and one I really want to see happen. And maybe on Mike's famous bridges too!

If we are going to have charites logo`s on cars bridges etc would it make more sense to stick with same one and hopefully build up a "bit of recognition" from them through continual support?
