Team racing is a race within a race. The concept is: 3 different pilots in 3 different classes team up in a points race against other teams of 3. During the normal course of qualifying and elimination rounds each pilot will accumulate points (point schedule noted below) for his team. At the end of the event the team with the most points wins.
|Qualifying Position Bonus|
If there is a need for a tie breaker any time in the race the following rules will apply. 1st tie breaker is the qualifying position in Gold(higher qualifier gets the tie breaker). 2nd tie breaker is the registration order in Gold(earlier the registration gets the tie breaker).
12 Airplane Fields
In the event that there is a “12 Airplane Field”, with the top 4 pilots getting a 1st round bye, those pilots with 1st round byes will receive 8 points for their team. (8 points, are awarded to 1st place finishers of an Elimination Round Heat)
