It's that time of year again folks.

More of the same as last year - with a few tweaks to the teams points series.

Racing is graded by ability - so you will be racing against the people you start with only.  

Individual Points for the Series

  • Everyone who starts the race will be given a point.  There will be bonus points awarded for 1st - 10th in each grade.   Points carry over from race to race.  
  • Top 10 Bonus Points: 1st - 15pts, 2nd - 13 pts, 3rd - 11pts, 4th - 9pts, 5th - 7pts, 6th - 6pts, 7th - 5pts, 8th - 4pts, 9th - 3pts, 10th - 2pts.  
  • Everyone after 10th will receive 1 point for starting the race.

Team points for the series

Last year we ran teams across grades.  The idea of that was to get people mixing across the grades, but we don't think it really achieved that aim.  So we are going to make it teams within grades to get some team riding going on within each race.  

  • Teams of four riders.
  • Riders MUST be in the same grade.
  • The top 3 from your team will contribute points each week. (This allows for not everyone being able to make it each week)
  • The points are the same as the individual points and are banked in your team's tally each week. 
  • As an example: you may have a rider race one week and score 7 points. They contribute to your team tally for that week - even if they don't come to any other race.

Riders from Kapiti can receive marshalling points as well (once) - with marshalling points equivalent to coming 5th in your grade.

You don't have to be at each race, but clearly the more you enter the better chance you have of winning.  If you aren't sure which grade you should go in seek out the advice of our race manager who should be able to assist you. 

Please bring your timing tags to registration if you have them so we can get you registered in the correct grade.  If you don't have a tag they can be purchased on the day for a once-only fee of $15 (they are yours to keep and will work at any timed races in the region).  There will be limited loan tags available for those guests who are new to club racing and just want to give racing a try (loan tags avialable for hire at $10 per race for those guests).  

Cost:

  • If you pre-register:
    • $5 for Kapiti members.
    • $10 for non-Kapiti members. 
  • If you register on the day
    • $10 for Kapiti members.
    • $15 for non-Kapiti members.

You do not need to be a member to enter the series

Pre-registration

Pre-register for the series HERE. Pay for pre-registrations on the day of racing.

It would greatly assist if people could get to the start with plenty of time as we will need people to check their tags in. Bring them to registration - pay your entry - then run your tag over the reader to confirm you are registered in the correct group and you’re good to go.  At the first race a couple of years ago we had 100 starters and were caught out getting everyone registered, so please get there with plenty of time to spare.
