Dropped Scores and Tiebreaks

The following scores will be dropped in each individual category, and Overall Championships:

A. Grass Autotests - Two scores (plus any associated bonus points) to be dropped (i.e. if 9 events are run, 7 scores to count) however, if 5 or less events run, all scores will count. 

B. Tar Autotests - Two scores (plus any associated bonus points) to be dropped (i.e. if 6 events are run, 4 scores to count) however, if 3 or less events run, all scores will count.

C. 12 Car Rallies - Two scores to be dropped (i.e. if 6 events are run, 4 scores to count) however, if 3 or less events run, all scores will count.

D. Tie Breaks - In the event of a tie in any Championship, and to try to avoid shared awards, the points scored will be considered as follows: Highest scores take precedence (i.e. someone scoring 10-10-9-8 would win over someone scoring 10-9-9-9, despite their total being the same.) If this fails to solve the tiebreak, awards will be shared.
