Information & Rules for Riders and Parents 2019
How it works:
There is no registration required for the series. Just turn up, sign on and race. We’ll keep a record of how many times you do.
Every race is entry on the day, we take cash and card payments.
There are no on the night prizes or podiums, all our time is dedicated to racing. Riders who are eligible for BC ranking points will receive them in the normal way.
Series points will be awarded as follows: 1st = 10 pts, 2nd =9 pts, 3rd = 8 pts, down to 10th place for 1 pt.
To qualify for a series ranking riders must race in at least 5 of the first 8 races. Series ranking will be determined by a rider’s best 5 points scores added together.
All riders who qualify for a series ranking will receive a memento of the event. All series podiums and mementos will be presented as part of SITP #9 on Friday 28th June 2019.
At SITP #9 riders will race for points for their club, across age groups and gender: 1 point per rider + 10 bonus points if a rider is a series qualifier + on the night race points. We’ll categorise clubs according to their size to find a couple of overall Spring in the Park Club Champs.
