The championship classes will take the form of a three-round competition where penalties are cumulative.
Competitors who are tied for first place on equality of penalties after the two rounds will jump-off against the clock (Optimum time for Primary and Advanced Primary) in a third round.
Minor placings, those below first place, will be decided by the competitor’s cumulative score from the two rounds with their time taken from their second round.
It should be noted that competitors who are eliminated or retire in the first round of the competition will not go forward to their second round.
Competitors must give priority to their Championship class should it clash with your Derby or other class on the day.
Placings will be determined by the rider with the lowest penalties in the quickest time.
Accumulator (Optimum Time)
Points are awarded as follows: one point for obstacle number one not knocked down, two points for number (2), three points for number three (3), etc. No point is awarded for an obstacle knocked down.
The rider with the most points and nearest to the optimum time will be declared the winner. In the event of equality of first place, a jump-off will take place using optimum time.
For the last obstacle of the course, an alternative obstacle may be provided, of which one element may be designated the Joker. The Joker will be more difficult than the alternative obstacle and carry double points. If the Joker is knocked down, these points must be deducted from the total points obtained so far by the rider.
