Teams are allocated points per the table below with only "Premier Mixed" teams recognised for awards at the national and international level. At the end of each calendar year, A1 will crown a new mixed premier team as the National Adventure Racing Champions at each A1 Country and also a new A1 World Cup Champion.
Team members are also allocated points equal to their team's overall race position, which go towards their A1 Club ranking and membership levels. At present this is simply a cumulative points membership and ranking, showing your dedication to the sport.
In the A1 national series, your best 3 race results will count towards your season total.
The A1 World Cup points and results rules are currently being reviewed and will be disclosed shortly.
