Please be advised that we have been requested to vacate the premises from the end of March 2020, with the last race meeting being 7 March 2020.

  • La Farge Mining SA (LMSA) have a huge mining contract and will be mining in the quarry from the end of March.

  • Please be advised that on the instruction of LMSA no-one will be allowed on the property after the 7 March.

  • Anyone entering or trying to enter will be dealt with by the security company and LMSA.

  • CMBC cannot and will not be held liable for anyone attempting to enter and disregarding our communication.

  • We trust that we will find temporary premises to accommodate us for this period of time.

Section 8

Calculation of final results


  • As indicated earlier in this rule book, the transponder system is not currently operational. This has prevented the absolutely accurate timing function for the ‘completion time’ of the last lap of each boat in each heat. It is simply not humanly possible for a manually operated lap-scoring system to achieve this 100% accurately. Therefore the previous results-determination method of using the last lap completion time data, to break a tie of points, is also no longer practical/possible. The committee will therefore apply the following method to break such a points tie.

    1. If two or more pilots in one class, have the same final points score for the day, the first method of breaking the tie will be to look at which of the pilots have more 1st place heat finishes than the other pilots. If these pilots have the same amount of 1st place finishes, then the same method of breaking the tie will be applied by looking at the highest number of second place finishes. This method will continue to be applied until one pilot has more 1st or 2nd or 3rd or 4th place etc finishes, which would then break the tie.

    2. In the extremely unlikely event of the above ‘finish places’ method not breaking the tie, these pilots will be classified as being tied, and they will each receive the same amount of points as they originally scored for the day.

    3. If there were just two pilots involved in the tie and they ended up by being tied (after application of ruling no 2 above) in say second place, then they will both receive 300 points for the overall placing in the event, (i.e., championship points), and the next placed pilot will then be in 4th place for the day and will receive 169 championship points. The same logic will be applied if there were more than 2 pilots in the tie.

 

  • Competitors receive the following points per heat, as well as for the overall placing achieved for the event:

    • 1st Place = 400 points

    • 2nd Place = 300 points

    • 3rd Place = 225 points

    • 4th Place = 169 points

    • 5th Place = 127 points

    • 6th Place = 96 points

    • 7th Place = 72 points

    • 8th Place = 54 points

 

  • A racer is awarded the total number of points from all his heats, minus his worst heat score.

 

  • IMPORTANT NOTE!
    If a pilot’s boat stops on the course during the timed heat, and has for argument’s sake completed 6 and ½ laps when the boat stalled at say 3 minutes into the heat, his lap score for such a heat will be 6 completed laps in the full running duration time of that heat (example 5 minutes for 7.5 F1’s), with no last-lap-completion-time, because he did not complete a lap after the computer end-siren.

 

  • ‘Last-man-standing’ rule does not automatically apply anywhere in the racing system!

 

  • Scores for determining CMBC champions in each class will be calculated by addition of each pilot’s points-results per class, from all events in the season, minus his one ‘worst day-score’ throw-away score.

 

  • NOTE!
    In the event of a scheduled race day being totally cancelled by CMBC, (and not be re-run at a later date), due to reasons such as bad weather etc., such a ‘no-score’ day may not be elected as the throw-away day score!
