  1. Any competitor without a PB from the last season will be given an assumed PB based on the judgment of the TT Captain from their first results on either the U706, and the U715, raced during the 2018 season.
  2. Division assignments will be reviewed after SIX races to ensure the competitors are in the most appropriate division to ensure fair competition.
  3. A competitor may be moved to a different division at any time during the season if, for example, they switch from a road bike to TT bike resulting in a step change in times. The competitor must however, notify the TT Captain or his elected representative before the competition.
  4. Points in each event will be scored as 10 for fastest competitor in each division, then 9 for second, 8 for 3rd, 7 for 4th, 6 for 5th, 5 for 6th, 4 for 7th, 3 for 8th, 2 for 9th and 1 for 10th.
  5. Competitors will stay in the same division for the duration of the season (unless item 7 above applies) even if they record a time faster than the division qualifying times.
  6. Each competitors 10 best performances count towards the divisions points, where ‘best’ means most points scored and they must have helped at One event (if there is a situation where there are too many helpers for events available, then the TT Captain will record the competitors name and that they have been willing to help at an event) in either the TT races or the Hill climb events.
  7. For the four hill climbs the top 10 finishers are assigned points for 10 to 1. The winner of the Hill climb league will be the competitor with the highest total points from their TWO best events.
