2008 Points Structure

V8 Supercars Australia will reward more teams and drivers in the 2008 Championship Series with a point-score that extends to 30th position yet retain the important emphasis on passing.

The V8 Supercar Championship Series begins in Adelaide next month with the Series being officially launched in Melbourne on February 6. Two compulsory team test days will be held in Victoria and Queensland on the 12th and 14th of February followed by the Clipsal 500 from February 21-24.

The board of V8 Supercars Australia agreed to return to the extended allocation after 2007 where teams that finished lower than 15th did not receive points for their effort.

“The board felt it was important that teams who made the effort in the lower half of the field should still be rewarded with points that reflect their finishing position,” V8 Supercars Australia Chief Executive Wayne Cattach said.

“We have done this without removing the importance of passing that we hope will result in a finish similar to last year when, after an entire season, one single pass would have changed the Championship in Jamie Whincup’s favour ahead of Garth Tander.

“The formula proved spot on in 2007 and we trust it will be the same in 2008.”

The points system will consist of the winner having a larger points gain against second place then equal graduations between second and sixth, seventh to 11th and 12th through 32nd.

With race weekends one, two or three race formats, the system had to be equal across all so as not to discriminate of the importance of one event against another.

“We think we have improved on last year’s points system by refining the tiers and placing more importance on winning or finishing higher in each graduation,” Mr Cattach said.

“It is always a challenge to find a system that pleases everybody and is relatively simple to explain. We believe that this does both and remains fair to all competitors.”

It reminds me of the old system- remember 192, 186, 180 and so on...
I think the old system was better, because it rewarded finishers and Autobarn took full use of that last year.

It is a better structure then last year thats for sure. At least like this, even if you finish at Bathurst last, you still take home points which is better then none!
