Group 1: Top Alcohol and Top Doorslammer.
These two divisions will run at all National Event rounds as above and the Series Champion for each class will be the point’s leader after the NZ Nationals conclusion.

Group 3: Supercharged Outlaws, Modified, Super Sedan, Modified Bike, Super Street and Junior Dragster.
Group 4: Super Gas, Racer’s in group 2, 3 & 4 can gain points at all National and both regional events and the Series Champion for each class will be the points leader after the NZ Nationals conclusion.
Allocated Points per series round would be: Qualifying Points per round
|Winner||100||Number 1||8||Number 5||4|
|Runner Up||80||Number 2||7||Number 6||3|
|Semi final||60||Number 3||6||Number 7||2|
|Quarter final||40||Number 4||5||Number 8||1|
Entry points per Event: 20 (must attend the event). Twenty (20) bonus points will be awarded at entry for the first interisland event attended (either North or South).
Points are awarded to racers for claiming National records on the basis of 5 points for ET & 5 points for mph.
Points are not transferable between divisions. Only one class change permitted within division to retain allocated points.
If in the event of a tie for points at the Grand Finals the car/bike with the better placing at this event is declared the winner, i.e. most rounds or quicker E.T or higher MPH (and in that order).
In the event there is less than four (4) vehicles for the first round in any group 2, 3 & 4 division, 60 points will be awarded regardless of placing at conclusion of event.
Championship Points allocation notes.
Should an event be abandoned at any time after qualifying has been completed the minimum potential points will be awarded to competitors.
If all competitors in a round of racing have not faced the starter at the point of abandonment of the event, no championship points will be allocated from that round. Point’s allocation in these instances will revert to the previous complete round of racing.
