Global Championship Table
Solarcar challenges are a long way from homologated motor racing, however, recognition of achievement is important.
With so many different events around the world, many with regulations specific to the prevailing circumstances, it is very difficult to compare like with like, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.
Therefore we have applied some basic guiding principals to create this table.
1. Events must have international participation.
2. Teams must have participated in two or more events (which means that a team that has performed well in a single event does not outrank a team that has performed creditably in multiple events).
3. Points have been awarded for each event in which a team has successfully competed, based on the size of the field and their position in the event according to the rules below:
- First place will be awarded n points, where n is 10 or the number of entrants that successfully complete the event, whichever is smaller.
- Second place will receive n-1 points, third n-2 and so on.
- All teams that complete the event will receive at least 1 point i.e. competitors placed 10th – 15th in an event where 15 teams complete will receive 1 point.
- A bonus point awarded to the team that achieves Pole Position.
Applying these rules for the 2014/2015 season results in the following:
