"Len Thompson Memorial Trophy" Drivers Championship

The "Len Thompson Memorial Trophy" Drivers Champion will be presented with the trophy at the end of each season, this prestigious trophy will be kept by the winner for one year. There is no formal entry to this championship, you just have to have competed in the nominated races and gained the highest number of points. .

Each years Championship winner will have his or her name added to the trophy to show their achievement to future drivers.

The 2007 Championship will have many more events and will expand to form a championship that Len Thompson would have been proud of, where the achievments of Lagonda Rapiers and there drivers come first.

The championship will have a relatively complex metric for calculating the winner due to the type of races entered throughout the year. These events will include scratch races, handicap races and class based races. The rules are defined below. The metric will remain constant for this year from this date.

If you have any views on the metric and how it could be improved, please send your ideas to championship@lagondarapier.co.uk.

The Championship Metric and constraints:

  • Races are Circuit Races and Hill Climbs.
  • Who ever has the highest points average at the end of the season based on the following criteria will be crowned Drivers Champion.
  • A maximum of 4 point scoring races can be considered
  • Only championship races count
  • Driving at a minimum of two circuits
  • The points will be awarded per driver and not per car
  • In the event of a draw on points, the person with the most wins will prevail, if there is still a draw the 2nd places will be taken in to account continuing down the order until a winner is found
  • Additional Points will be awarded for a fastest lap in one of your point scoring races
