Rules for the Triple-M Speed Championship

The Triple-M Speed Championship is a non-commercial, annual award presented to the most successful driver of Triple-M cars in a series of nominated speed events organised during the calendar year. To qualify, drivers must be members of the M.G. Car Club and the Triple-M cars must be recognised by the Register. The Triple-M cars used can be either standard production cars or specials providing they are made from a standard Triple-M chassis and all major mechanical parts are to a standard Triple-M pattern. Drivers can compete in more than one car and any car can be used by more than one driver. The nominated events include sprints, hillclimbs and races and are published at the beginning of each year. All qualifying events are handicapped in order to equalise the cars’ performance as far as possible. The award is to the driver and not the car. Sprints and hillclimbs are handicapped by members of the Triple-M Register. Races are handicapped under conditions laid down by the Motor Sports Association (MSA). The decision on whether to keep an event as a qualifying event for the Speed Championship where it does not have a handicap, is at the discretion of the Competition Secretary after consultation with the Triple-M entrants in that event.

For each event, the number of points gained will depend on the overall number of Triple-M entries. Where a race handicap result includes cars other than Triple-M, these will be discounted for the purpose of calculating points for the Speed Championship. Up to three entries, the points score will be:

1st Triple-M Car 7 points
2nd Triple-M Car 6 points
3rd Triple-M Car 5 points

Over three entries, points will be awarded on a sliding scale as shown:

If a driver starts an event but does not finish, or completes practice but does not start, they will be awarded 3 points and be considered as an entrant. Where a driver is a "non-starter" or does not complete practice he will not be considered an entrant and will gain no points.

Bonus Points will be awarded if more than one type of event is entered:

Sprints and Hillclimbs

5 points

Races and Sprints or Hillclimbs

10 points

Races, Sprints and Hillclimbs

15 points

The points totals will be kept by the Triple-M Competition Secretary and published at regular intervals throughout the year in the Bulletin and on the Triple-M web site. It is expected that any disputes arising from the Triple-M Speed Championship should be settled amicably by the competitors concerned.
