eKartingNews.com United States Rotax Driver Rankings 2013 Program Outlined

Driver rankings program continues for US Rotax Max Challenge programs across the country

Rotax Max Challenge United States logo

The partnership between MAXSpeed and eKartingNews.com continues into 2013, bringing with it the EKN United States Rotax Driver Rankings. Taking over from the USRMC National Point Standings, the EKN program was introduced in 2012 to rank drivers within the country’s official Rotax Max Challenge program against one another. The rankings series will continue in 2013, as EKN and the MAXSpeed Group continue a strong working relationship in the promotion of Rotax racing within the United States.

The EKN United States Rotax Driver Rankings system followed similar parameters to that of the popular EKN Driver Rankings for the Stock Moto and TaG, recognizing all the USRMC members in the six categories. The system tabulates the best six results for each USRMC driver in each class. As the season goes along, drivers will be able to better their score with results from sanctioned USRMC events across the country until the final results have been recorded. At the end of the year, EKN will crown the top driver in each category and will enter the following season as the #1 driver for that class.

Those events listed below and on the official GoRotax.com Schedule page will be included in the EKN United States Rotax Driver Rankings program (schedules subject to change). All drivers competing at these events will be included, however, MUST be a United States Rotax Max Challenge member for their results to count. Any driver who races and is not a USRMC member will be excluded from the results and tabulation. For 2013, it will be the responsibility of all USRMC administrators and directors to ensure the drivers are members and the results are recorded and submitted to the MAXSpeed office in order for the EKN Rotax Driver Rankings to be current.

The 2012 eKartingNews.com United States Rotax Driver Rankings #1 pilots were:

Senior Max: Kyle Byers
DD2: Dan Lubin
Masters Max: Scott Ripslinger
Junior Max: Oliver Askew
Mini Max: Mathias Ramirez
Micro Max: Harry Coulton

The first release of the 2013 EKN Rotax Driver Rankings is schedule for the end of May.

EKN United States Rotax Driver Rankings
The points are tabulated similar to the regular EKN Driver Rankings for TaG and Stock Moto. Each race will have a base-ranking of 9 with the added variable of field size. A percentage of one weighting point is added for the size of the field. The sum becomes the overall ranking for any race. Following a race, drivers receive points based on their finishing position with 100 points earned for a win. Each subsequent position drops by one point with 99 points given to the second place driver and so on throughout the field. These points are then multiplied by the overall ranking to produce a driver’s final point total from each event. Using a driver’s best six races, we calculate each driver’s overall score and subsequent ranking.
