New Race Series at Manly Warringah BMX Club – 2020

For the 2020 Manly Warringah BMX Club is introducing three competitions throughout the season. Riders that wish to participate in the competitions will need to use a transponder timing chip. (transponders are available via the club – whilst these are not required to race at Manly club races, they are a required if you want to be given any scores in our races).

These competitions will run across three classes for riders age 8 and above. The age classes will remain as per 2019 with the three classes being:

  • 8 to 10
  • 11 to 16
  • 17+

The age you turn during the calendar year determines the age group that you race in. (ie, if you turn 10 in September 2020, you will be in the 10 year age group for the entire calendar year of 2020).

The three competitions that we will be running are:

Club Championship

The Club Championship is the main series of races at Manly Warringah BMX for 2020 and will determine Club Champions in each of the age groups.  The club championship will be run over eight clubbies. Points will be allocated for each moto.

Points are awarded for overall place in the class at the end of the Motos from 1st down to 8th place in the class. i.e. 1st = 10, 2nd = 8, 3rd = 6, 4th = 5, 5th = 4, 6th = 3, 7th = 2, 8th = 1 point. E.g. 1st in 5 Motos = 50. DNS = 0, DNF = 0.

The points from your four best club championship races will be totalled to find the club champion for each age class.

The dates for the club championship rounds are: Feb 29, Mar14, May 9, Jun 13, Aug 1, Aug 22, Oct17, Nov 7

Season Pointscore

The season pointscore will consist of all non-championship rounds the season. This competition should reward the riders that participate in the most club events and race well for each moto throughout the season.

Points are awarded for overall place in the class at the end of the Motos from 1st down to 8th place in the class. i.e. 1st = 10, 2nd = 8, 3rd = 6, 4th = 5, 5th = 4, 6th = 3, 7th = 2, 8th = 1 point. E.g. 1st in 5 Motos = 50. DNS = 0, DNF = 0.

The points from your all non-championship clubbies will be totaled to find the Pointscore Champion for each age class.

Handicap Championship

The Handicap Championship will run in conjunction with the Club Championship rounds. The purpose of the Handicap Championship is to allow all riders the chance to win a round and compete for the overall trophy regardless if they are an experienced rider or just starting out in the sport.  Faster riders are given a ‘handicap’ (just like golf) and their times are adjusted at the end of each moto – you don’t need to be first across the finish line to win on handicap!

At the end of each championship clubbie, the fastest riders will be “awarded” a time handicap to level the playing field. Riders that are towards the back of the field will be given a time benefit. This handicap will be then added to the riders average score for the following clubbie to determine the riders overall position for the clubbie. 

Points will be awarded on a low point basis for all riders in the class. i.e. 1st = 1, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 3, etc. Any riders that do not race will be awarded points equal to the maximum riders in the class.

The points from your six best clubbies will be totaled to find the handicap champion for each age class.
