Major Changes to Scoring System

How will point scoring changes impact the Series results by the time we get to the 24hr Australian International Pedal Prix at Murray Bridge in September?

The UniSA Australian HPV Super Series is set for a big change to the way points are allocated for each Round of the Series in 2024.

With the aim of increasing opportunities to gain points while at the same time creating more competition, three key elements have been introduced:

  • Bigger points difference between placings
  • Double points at the season ending 24hr Australian International Pedal Prix at Murray Bridge
  • Point scoring for the Copyworld Fastest Lap

 

Commenting on the introduction, Series CEO Marcus Lacey said, “Each of the three elements on their own are not inconsequential. Combined they are very significant. We see these changes providing more ways for all teams to score points, plus it may well open up the field of contenders in each of the various categories. Of course, points for the Copyworld Fastest Lap will mix things up even further. It’s new and it’s different. There is a sense of the unknown, and ultimately only time will tell. What we do know, is it will be very interesting to see just how this season unfolds given these changes. The UniSA Australian HPV Super Series is set to step up to another level.”

The point scoring system will have its debut at the Mount Gambier 8 Hour, Round 1 of the UniSA Australian HPV Super Series on 16 March 2024 in Mount Gambier, South Australia.
