Contents

This was also the first year that each class had its own championship, instead of a singular overall Manufacturers Championship.

Schedule

Although composed of 15 races, each class did not compete in all events. Some events were for one class, while others were combined events.

Manufacturers' Championship

All championships scored points to the top six competitors in each class, in the order of 9-6-4-3-2-1. Constructors were only awarded points for their highest finishing car. Other finishers from the same manufacturer were merely skipped in the points count.

Only the best 5 results counted towards the championship. Points earned but not counted towards the championship total are listed in italics.
