FAQ

Points

Teams are allocated points based on their category, with "Premier Mixed" recognised as the sports premier category.  

Team members are also allocated points equal to their team's overall race position (regardless of category), 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.  

A1 Australia 2018 Series - your best 4 results will count towards your category season total.

A1 South Africa 2018 Series - your best 3 results will count towards your category season total.

A1 New Zealand 2018 Series - hang 5, you just finished you inaugural season! more to come

Footnotes:

  1. Teams can be registered in multiple categories over the course of the season if circumstances lead to that situation.  
  2. As an example, members of a female team who won their category but came 5th overall would only get 50 points each towards their individual A1 Club ranking for coming 5th.  
  • Note members of a team "unranked" due to a retired team member, who go on to finish the course receive A1 Club points equal to their theoretical finish line position.  The retired team member only gets the 1 DNF point.
  • Note members of 2 or 3 member teams who race in the full course and finish, qualify for A1 Club individual points (max 4 points for finishing regardless of position), but the team itself does not receive points.

Rules

  1. A team may enter the series in one of the following categories: Premier Mixed, All Male, All Female, Masters (combined age 190 years+), Youth (combined age <= 110 years).
  2. Teams may draw from a pool of up to 7 team members throughout the series.  If you use more, you wont qualify for prizes and awards but keep your series points.  A team member nominated at the start of the season, who doesn’t end up racing does not count towards the teams total of 7.  
  3. For a team to accumulate points towards the Adventure 1 series and to maintain an Adventure 1 ranking it must abide by the rules outlined for each sanctioned race (each race will have their own special rules).  However Adventure 1 has the right to over rule if we believe merited.
  4. In the event of a tie break, the team with the highest placed race results wins (most firsts, then most seconds etc). If still tied, then whichever team has the best head to head. If still tied then the lowest total time across all races wins.  Adventure 1 reserves the right to determine the final season rankings in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
  5. A team must do 2 or more races in a category with 2 or more teams competing to quality for prizes.
