BMW Drivers Cup Series

The BMW Driver’s Cup is the principal championship for E30 Racing. In 2016 the Q1 Group (http://www.q1group.com.au) has signed on as the series sponsor of the 2016 BMW Driver’s Cup..

In 2016 the Q1 Group BMW Driver’s Cup will be contested over 7 Rounds across 3 States. Each round will consist of a number of sprint races. Round 4 will also consist of an endurance race. For each race, points are allocated based on finishing position. Points from all races are then added to give the round total. In order to maintain parity between meetings with different numbers of races, round points are awarded to each competitor based on their round total. In 2016 each competitor will be permitted to drop their worst round result from their overall total point score.

The following points system is applied to both race placings and round championship points:
