RACE FORMAT

Heat Racing

Points for Championship status are awarded only for Heat Racing and Semi Main races. Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place determined by accumulated points in heat races and Semi Main.

ORANZ Point Scoring Shortcourse system is used to determines Group champions and starting positions in the “Lucas Oil Feature Race” and the “Mickey Thompson Tires Feature Race”.

1st = 18 points, 2nd = 16 Points,  3rd = 14 Points,  4th = 12 Points, 5th = 11 Points, 6th = 10 Points,  7th = 9 Points,  8th = 8 points, 9th = 7 Points, All other finishers = 6 Points each. All Heat Racing and Semi Main points accumulate over the 2 events to determine the overall group champions.

All race grids are 2 wide. All races are “Rolling Starts”. Each racing Group to have a minimum of 9 cars. Groups with lower numbers will be handicapped into the closest racing Group as determined by race organiser. A Group Rep will be appointed for each racing Group to assist in keeping numbers above 9 per Group.
First Heat in each Group will be determined by “Completed Entry Form Received” for Grid Position – first Entry Form per Group on pole position, second received goes onto second best position etc. Last and late entries off the back of the grid in first
heat. Second Heat in the inverse order of the first grid.

Semi Mains

Third Heat is a “Semi Main”. The fastest finishers, determined by heat 1 and heat 2, to the front with the fastest 6 inverting their starting order eg: fastest starts at grid position 6, second fastest on grid 5, third fastest on grid 4 etc. “Semi Main” to have more laps based on number of racers. 7 cars in class would get 7 laps. 9 cars in class 9 laps. No “Semi Main” will be more than 10 laps. 3 heats per Group (includes “Semi Main”).

“Lucas Oil Feature Race” & “Mickey Thompson Tires Feature Race” – 15 laps

IMPORTANT CHANGE IN RACE FORMAT – THIS IS A SAFETY CHANGE:

Due to the high numbers of Pro1, ThunderTruck and ProLite racers, nearly 20 to date, the organisers are changing the “A” & “B” Mains to 2 x 15 lap races of equal standing:  

“Lucas Oil Feature Race” for Race Groups ProBuggy, Challenger, SuperBug, Ultra4, Ultra4Turbo and Ultra4Pro. 

Grid to be determined by points gained in Heat and Semi Main Racing. The racer with the  highest points starts from the back of the field. Points determined grid means the lowest point scoring race car starts from Pole Position in Group.
