Should there be a problem with our transponder timing then the track time keepers can still register you on the system for your points. 

The British Championship is open to members only. In order to score points you must be a registered Club Member. 

The Championship is to be held over 7 Rounds with 6  to count towards the final standings. 10 Points will be awarded to the Rider who starts and completes 1 lap of Rounds 1-6, with 100 bonus points awarded to those who start Round 7. 

You are permitted to push your machine over the finish line up to a maximum of 30 minutes after the chequered flag has signalled the end of the race, no outside assistance is permitted. If you receive a marshal tow you can only return to the pits,  you will not be allowed to cross the finish line. All repairs after a tow-back must be performed in the pits in order for the rider to restart the race and be included in the results. The Chequered flag signals the end of the race, if you are in the pits when the chequered flag is dropped you will DNF, no rider shall be permitted to leave the pits after the Chequered flag. 

If you finish the race but have completed less than half the number of laps of your class winner then only 50% of the available points will be awarded. I.E if you finish 6th the normal points would be 20, in this case it would be halved to 10.
