SCORING

Pole Position

For the purposes of the JDR 2017 ASBK Tipping Competition, "Pole Position" is defined as being the rider that starts Race 1 from the 1st grid position. If no rider fields the 1st grid position in Race 1, "Pole Position" will be awarded to the top rider in the merged qualifying session(s) or qualifying race.

25 points are awarded for tipping the correct rider for "Pole Position". No points are awarded for an incorrect tip.

Fastest Lap

For the purposes of the JDR 2017 ASBK Tipping Competition, "Fastest Lap" is defined as being the rider that completes the fastest lap in any race during the round. Lap times from practice, qualifying, superpole or qualifying race sessions are not included. If the rider is disqualified from that session, the lap time is void and "Fastest Lap" will go to the next fastest lap time. Lap times are to be sourced solely from the official timing company contracted at the round.
