    Points system

    Championship points were awarded on a 9-6-4-3-2-1 basis for the first six places at each round. Points from the six best round results could be retained by each driver.

    Where a round was contested over more than one heat, round points were awarded on a 20-16-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis to the first 14 placegetters in each heat. These points were then aggregated to determine the placings for the round. Where more than one driver attained the same total, the relevant round placing was awarded to the driver with the highest placing in the last heat.
