Points System

GENERAL

  • All ManCup events across the season will count for points toward a championship.
  • All riders are permitted to use a different bike per event to score points.
  • Points will be posted on official ManCup.info website within 12 days after an event’s completion.
  • All riders must enter competition at the Finals to be eligible to win a championship.

 

BIKE NUMBERS

  • BIKE NUMBER: A rider must use the same bike number for the entire season, and cannot change it at any time during the season. All bike numbers on the bike must be the same. Think of your bike number like it is your social security number, it is your identity.
  • NUMBER SIZE: All bike numbers must be 3” tall, and on both sides of bike (not in the middle of your windshield on the front). Numbers must be painted on or made of vinyl. No shoe polish is permitted.
  • CLASS DESIGNATION: We encourage all racers to have the appropriate class designation on their bike for the class or classes they are running in. Check your class rules for your class designation. Class designation should also be made out of 1” tall vinyl and located beside your bike number.
  • BIKE NUMBER LOCATION: The preferred location for bike numbers on bikes with fairings is on both sides of your windshield. The preferred location for bike numbers on bikes without fairings is on both sides of your tail section or wheelie bar. For the “Jockeys” that ride multiple different bikes, you may want to also consider placing your bike number on your helmet.
  • CHANGING BIKES: If you are running someone else’s bike be sure to use your bike number and not theirs.
  • POINTS FOR BIKE NUMBERS: The points system tracks the rider, it does not track the bike. Points cannot be transferred between riders.
  • GETTING A BIKE NUMBER: All Man Cup racers must use a 3 or 4 digit number. The Top 10 in Pro classes only from the previous season are the only bikes that may use bike numbers #1-10. Using numbers 11-99 is not recommended. Man Cup will give new racers a permanent 4 digit number at tech for both sides of your motorcycle if you do not already have a number made in vinyl for your bike. This will always be your permanent number at Man Cup for years to come. You may have that same bike number made out of vinyl to match your bike if you wish, but be sure to have it on both sides of your bike.
  • VERIFY YOUR BIKE NUMBER: All riders must check their time slip after each qualifying pass and each elimination run to make sure it has your correct bike number on it. Riders need to also check their name, bike info, and hometown on the qualifying results in the tower before eliminations to make sure you name and spelling are correct. If anything is incorrect you must notify the tower immediately to get it fixed so you get the correct points.

 

RAINOUTS

In the case of a ManCup event ending due to weather or any other unforeseen circumstances, the following procedures will go in to effect to properly disperse event points in the interest of fairness as well as to reward those racers actually making the event.

Zero full rounds of qualifying complete: Any class where zero qualifying rounds have been completed, those racers completing the registration / tech process will equally divide the entire pool of qualifying and elimination points that would have earned across the entire event. Only those racers completing the registration and tech process will be eligible.At least one full round of qualifying is complete: Any class where at least one full round of qualifying is completed, those racers making a legal qualifying pass will keep qualifying points as earned and equally divide the entire pool of elimination points that would have earned across the course of eliminations. Only those racers making a legal qualifying pass will be eligible.

Incomplete eliminations – zero rounds complete: Any class where zero rounds of eliminations have been completed, all qualified racers will keep qualifying points as earned and equally divide the entire pool of elimination points that would have earned across the course of eliminations. Only those actually qualified will be eligible.
Incomplete eliminations – partially completed: Any class where the elimination process has begun but is unable to complete, all remaining racers will keep qualifying and completed rounds of elimination points as earned and equally divide the entire pool of remaining elimination points that would have earned across the balance of the incompleted rounds of eliminations.

 

BUY BACKS

New for 2016 is a streamlined and much more efficient first round loser buyback process for Pro ET , Street ET and V-twin ET . The first round buyback is now built-in to your entry. There is no longer a need to scramble back to registration to purchase the buyback and then rush to the lanes to make the next round of eliminations. As already mentioned, the purpose of the change is to make the elimination process run smoother, run faster, and eliminate any opportunity for those unscrupulous racers to abuse the buyback by coming back, but not buying.

 

POINTS DISCREPANCIES

  • It is each and every rider’s responsibility to verify his or hers points earnings after each event. If you feel your points from an event have not been tabulated correctly, you must call, email fax or mail detailing your contention within 15 days after the points for that event are posted. Please Contact Man Cup at:

 

TIE BREAKERS

  • In the event of a tie in points for the championship at the end of the year, the tie will be broken by 1) rider winning most races, 2) rider who went the most rounds in a single race, 3) rider entering most races, 4) highest qualifier at the final points race. The winner of the tie-breaker will be given a half point.
