2008 Focus Fanatics Extreme Autocross Challenge Sponsored by Capaldiracing.com - RESULTS

The 2008 Autocross Season has begun!

Scoring starts NOW (2/29/08).

PLEASE KEEP THIS POST FREE OF COMMENT AND RESERVE ONLY FOR SCORING.

See below for guidance on how to post your scores:

Quote:
Reporting and Verification:
Members participating in the Focus Fanatics AX Challenge must submit their scores to the Moderator staff no later than 3 days after posting to their local autocross series “results” page. Results provided to the Moderator Staff must use the following thread: LINK AVAILABLE SOON!

Posts should include the following information:
• Focus Fanatics Screen Name
• Car Type (i.e. 2002 SVT focus, 2004 ZX4 etc)
• SCCA Car Class (See Scoring Details)
• Class Placement (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc)
• Overall Placement (1st, 2nd, 10th, etc)
• MOST IMPORTANT: Web Site where the Moderator Staff can verify the results


Scoring Methodology:
Since the membership often cannot compete “head to head”, we determined a scoring system that evens the playing field across the Focus Fanatics community. Scoring will be determined as follows:

We use SCCA classifications (i.e. GS, STS, STX, SM, etc)

RTP/PAX Indexes will be applied to participants whose local series does not use the handicap system

Final scores using the RTP/PAX system will be used

We base scoring on Class Placement and Bonus Factors for Fastest Time of the Day (FTD – Raw Score) and Overall wins.

Time CANNOT be a factor as each course is different. If 2 or more members run the same event, then the final results sort it out for us.

Scoring template (by overall finish):
1st place: 10 points
2nd place: 9 points
3rd place: 8 points
4th place: 7 points
5th place: 6 points
6th place: 5 points
7th place: 4 points
8th place: 3 points
9th place: 2 points
10th place: 1 point

Now we factor in class:
HS: x 9 points
GS: x 8 points
STS: x 7 points
STU: x 6 points
STX: x 5 points
DSP: x 4 points
FSP: x 3 points
EP: x 2 points
SM: x 1 point

Now factor in placement for overall standings. Because it is possible for different classes to garner FTD and overall wins, this represents a bonus opportunity for the membership to earn additional points.

FTD: + 10 points
Overall Win: + 20 points

For example - Joe Schmutley, competing in GS vs. Bennie Bagodonuts in DSP:

--------------------------------------------------
Schmutley(GS Class) takes 1st in class worth 10 points (class) multiplied by a factor of 5 = 50, and finishes 2nd overall earns a total of:

50(5 points*10) + 9(2nd place) = 59 points
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
Bagodonuts(DSP Class) takes 1st overall in class (10 points) multiplied by a factor of 2 = 20, but wins overall (+20 points) earns and the FTD (+10 points):

20(2 points*10) + 20(Overall Win) + 10(1st place) = 50 points
--------------------------------------------------
Schmutley would be the winner.

While this system isn’t perfect, it is the most equitable system that we could determine.
We will post a separate thread to tally the points through the season so that the membership can track the results.

A minimum of 5 events is required for final points standings. We will take the BEST 5 results from each participant to tally the final score.

GOOD LUCK !!!

^^^We've been discussing that.
(As well as EP and STU)
Meaning, any and all classes that the fOCUS could compete in.
As soon as we figure out the new scoring (adding those 3 classes in) we'll post up an update.

More than likely, it'll be 9 points for HS down to 1 point for SM.

Hey...
We still haven't resolved the "class" issues...
In that, we don't have all available classes shown in the points.
