Points system

Points were awarded to the top six finishers in each race on a 9-6-4-3-2-1 basis. Manufacturers were only given points for their highest finishing car in each race with no points awarded for positions gained by any other cars from that manufacturer.

Sports, Sports Prototype and GT cars were eligible to score points for their manufacturer in the overall championship and the GT category also had its own separate award.

Cars that were not included in the Sports, Sports Prototype or GT categories in a race were not eligible to score points for the overall championship.

Only the best five points finishes counted towards a manufacturer's total, with any other points earned being discarded. Discarded points are shown within brackets in the tables below.
