Every Year NorcalKarters.com compiles all the stats from
Club Races and Regional programs from the Norcal and western
Reno Kart tracks and uses a mathematical process to find the
areas top ranked Drivers. The points are
determined on the number of karts in the class, for example:
in a 10 kart field the winner would receive ten points; the
driver finishing last would receive 1 point. For IKF Region 11,
Red Line Oil Karting Championship, Pro Kart North and
Norcal Outlaw races the drivers will receive
double points for the higher level of competition, for
example: if there are 10 karts in the class, the winner
would receive 20 points, while the driver finishing last
would receive 2 points. In order to qualify for the top ten,
drivers must have competed in 8 or more races before the
drop, some classes will be based on a wave. The points from each race would be compiled together
minus the dropped races for low finishes, then the total
would get divided by the number of races run, finding the
average points score for the driver. This particular method
rewards the driver scoring good finishes against tough
fields with high kart counts.
****Please note, one track
did not have their club races counted due to results not
being made available, that track was Stockton Motorplex.
Only the Outlaw and Gold Rush races were counted due to the
results being made available through mylaps.****
