Re: Solo 1 Scoring & Classification Proposal

This is where I think you are wrong. Motorsport does not mean only "RACING". Motorsport includes time trials be it at a track or in a parking lot, and both of these systems use raw times for determining winners. They always have.

Racing on the other hand is another form of motorsport that uses points.

These are different forms of motorsport, and it sounds like you believe there should one form of scoring for all motorsport, when in fact there are completely different "sports".

Also to one of your other points, someone could easily finish 2nd at every event but one in a Race Series (where points are awarded 100 for a win, 95 for second, 90 for third, etc), winning that one event, but out place the person who finished first at every event but one, and finished 20th at that last race. Race series reward laps completed, and poles. Assuming that the pole is worth 5 points and there are 10 races in the series.

Driver A = 9 wins + 1x20th place + 5 poles + 200 laps completed (1 pt per lap) = 900 + 5 + 25 + 200 = 1130

Driver B = 1 win + 9 x 2nd place + 5 poles + 200 laps completed (1 pt per lap) = 855 + 100 + 25 + 200 = 1180

Drive B with only one victory and 9 2nd place finishes out scores Driver A who had 9 victories and Wins the the Canadian Touring Car Championship. (Not a true story, but entirely possible using a RACE scoring system.
