Series Calculations – When the event is part of a series, each competitor’s score is calculated as a percentage of the winning score at the same event. The resulting percentage from each event is then aggregated across the Series. Enter a minimum of 3 events in a series to qualify, and the winner is the one with the highest totalled percentages over his/her 3 highest scoring events.
Why is it done in this way? Well, if one event is a wash out with really sticky mud, the winner may only visit 10CPs and therefore be awarded 100%. Someone who collects 5CPs at the same event will achieve 50%, etc. If the next event is dry and fast, the winner may visit all 15CPs and be awarded 100%. Someone who only visits 10CPs will be awarded 66%. 10CPs at a dry event could be far easier that on a wet day. This makes for a fair calculation over all the events in the series. Entering all the events will be a significant advantage over someone who misses one as all events count in the total.
