CanAm Challenge

The top finisher representing each of their countries will have their points added to their country's overall points towards the CanAm championship. Drivers from outside North America may choose to represent their own country, Canada or the USA. A driver can drive for any country regardless of their location. No races are dropped from this championship.

 

B Class:

The B Class races will start after the third CanAm race of the series. This is designed for drivers that tend not to run in the front of the pack and don't tend to score points as high as others.

 

The criteria for eligible drivers are those that competed in at least 2 of the first three races of the series who have total points scored in the first three races of the series of 20 or less in their two highest scoring races. The race director may use his own discretion for adding or excluding drivers that do or don't fit the criteria. Points are scored the same as the driver championship.

 

B Class races will run on practice weeks and all members may attend. Only those that meet the above criteria will have their points counted for their actual finishing position.

 

Catch-up Races

Catch-up races are for drivers who enter the series late or are unable to attend 3 or more races. A driver that has missed 3 or more races in the series may use a Catch-up race to gain points for the driver championship.
