2007 MMRA Points System
The MMRA Competition Committee has voted to make only two minor changes to the
2007 MMRA points system.
First, all Touring Series races will award drivers a minimum of 31
points, regardless of where they finish. The reason for this was to
reduce the discrepancy between a local event, and Touring Series races.
The minimum points awarded to all competitors in local races with less than
10 cars has been 31 for years, while a bad finish at a Touring Series race
with lots of cars could be under 20 points. Now drivers will earn the
same number of points for finishing last in a small local race or at the
back of the field in a big Touring Series race.
Second, if a driver is caught cheating with illegal parts at a local
race, and those parts are sent to MMRA with a report form (Exhibit F in all
2007 MMRA Rulebooks), the offending driver will have a score of 0 entered in
their points that can not be replaced by a higher score later. As
such, being caught cheating with illegal parts - even at a local event, will
effectively remove you from championship contention.
These minor changes improve a points system that already has proven it
works. Drivers are rewarded for their efforts, and everyone can
compare their performance against racers from around the country simply by
checking their standing on the MMRA website.
