Hi all, just a bit confuse bout the point calculation...

Entry Position Score Start End
10000 1269 10.89 2084.97 2095.86

10000 1307 11.23 2032.06 2043.29

This is the situation, why when i was in 1269post my point earn are 10.89, but when i 1307 my point are more than 1269?

Is time are the main reason for the the point difference? or what other reason?

Pls advice... Tq!

Hi ultramanAK!

This difference is most likely going to be due to the field strength, as that is a component that goes into the point calculations (scoring system).

If the field is tougher, then you will get more points for a similar or slightly worse finish.

Hope this helps.
