The championship consists of three categories, based on the drivers’ pace and experience: Professional, Professional-Amateur, and Amateur. In addition, all new drivers to the Championship are automatically entered into a Rookie Class, where they compete to win up to an additional £35,000. Finally, there is a team championship where each team assigns a maximum of two drivers to score points for them throughout the season.
Points are awarded based on finishing positions across the respective classes, and over £350,000 is awarded in prize money over the course of each season.
For 2019 we will continue the reverse grid for the Pro category during Race 2 of each championship weekend but have refined it in line with feedback from our drivers and teams.
As before, each driver’s fastest qualifying time will determine their place on the starting grid.
The finishing order of the first race will still determine the starting grid for the second race of each weekend. However, different to last year, if a driver does not finish in Race 1, thy will now start behind the last race-finisher within their category, and not at the back of the entire grid.
This new format works as follows:
Both Race 1 and Race 2 will have standing starts.
Drivers will score 1 point for setting the fastest lap in their category in each race.
Drivers that set the fastest lap time within their category during qualifying at each race weekend will be awarded two championship points.
Pro (Race 2), Pro-AM and AM points allocation:
Pro (Race 1) points will be weighted as follows:
Team and Rookie Championship points will be calculated based on a driver’s overall finishing position:

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
