Points were awarded in the order of 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 to the top 10 finishers in each race, with some exceptions:Drivers had to complete 30% of the race distance and only drive one car in order to score points
Teams were only given points for their highest finishing car; any other team cars were merely skipped in the points standings. Points were still awarded to their drivers however.
Neither driver nor team scored points if the car did not complete 90% of the winner's distance.
Category 1 and Category 2 cars did not contest their own individual championships and thus were scored together.
Note1 - Derek Warwick co-drove the winning car at Silverstone but was not eligible for points.
2 - Bertrand Gachot co-drove the winning car at Le Mans but was not eligible for points due to insufficient distance.
3 - Michael Ferte co-drove the second placed car at Le Mans but was not eligible for points due to insufficient distance.
4 - John Winter co-drove the third placed car at Mexico City but was not eligible for points due to insufficient distance.
