2022 National Points Series

2022 BriSCA F2 National Points Series Championship (NPSC)

 

 

Introduction

·         The 2022 BriSCA F2 National Points Series Championship (NPSC), for the silver roof, will see the emphasis placed on point scoring, but with a reduced travelling commitment, especially in the latter part of the year when funds and energy levels are running low.

·         Certain elements of recent “National Series” and the historical “National Points Championship” competitions have been preserved in order to retain intrigue and interest right through to the conclusion of the racing season, while recognising that wining the silver roof requires a level of commitment throughout the season.

·         Significant discussion has taken place between promoters, officials, and drivers, augmented by feedback garnered from previous series and through social media appeals, to produce an appropriate competition.

·         Drivers will earn a spot through qualification in the first part of the season, and then race for the title in the second part.

 

Qualification

Criteria

·         Drivers will score National Points, as per the BriSCA F2 regulations, up to and including 20th August 2022, the cut-off date for the September grading list. This is referred to as the Points-Qualification season.

·         The top 12 scoring UK drivers in the National Points table, following the 20th August cut-off date, will automatically become part of the NPSC, and thus compete for the title of BriSCA F2 National Points Series Champion, and the right to wear the silver roof for the following season. This is referred to as the NPSC Post-Season.

Points to Note

·         There will be NO seeding of drivers in to the NPSC based on previous achievements, or one-off championships; the series is based on a level of commitment to race through the season, as befitting the silver roof.

·         There is no requirement to race at a set number of meetings, or specific tracks/events, during the Points- Qualification part of the season.

·         Series drivers will only score NPSC points at the 7 designated series rounds.

·         All drivers, across all grades, including the 12 NPSC drivers, will continue to score National Points, as normal, for grading and track-championship purposes at ALL meetings during the NPSC Post-Season.

·         The driver with the most NPSC points at the end of Round 7 will be declared the 2022 National Points Series Champion, and will earn the right to wear the silver roof for the 2023 season.
