  9. ​ ranking system
     

    1. How the Ranking score is assigned to riders who race in the Evolution Racing League.
       

      1. As a premise for us, both the Qualification and the race and the results obtained are important for attributing points to the driver.

      2. The score is assigned according to the results obtained in each stage in which the driver participated, taking into account the starting position, the finishing position, the number of participating drivers, and whether the fastest lap of the race is the number of steps without DNF.

      3. The maximum score a driver can reach in a race will be 115 points

        This will only be possible if the pilot has:

        IEFQ = 100
        IEFR = 100
        VR = 10
        Bonus per Event completed = 1

        What do these Numbers mean?
        Very simple....

        This pilot made the pole position
        Won the Race and Made the Fastest Lap

        that is:

        The pilot will receive 100 points for pole + 100 points for victory, making the simple average of this, the pilot will have 100 points that will be added to the 10 that he won with the fastest lap and five of the participation in the stage, achieving a total of 112 points.
         

    2. All drivers will have their points computed based on their start and finish positions, if they win the fastest lap of the race they will receive the 10 point bonus.
      The scores obtained in the stages will be added together and their average will be the updated score of the Ranking.
      It's very important to participate and start in a good position and of course finish the race in the best possible position. 
      If there is a need for changes to the regulation by the management, all involved will be informed
       

  10. License System
     

    1. The rider categories will be divided into 4 types
       

      1. Platinum

        To remain in this portfolio, the pilot will need to meet the requirements contained in the ERL champ rule and obtain an average IE above 72
        in this wallet the pilot will have 15% discount on any champ.
         

      2. Gold

        To remain in this portfolio, the pilot will need to meet the requirements contained in the ERL champ rule and obtain an average IE between 48 and 71
        in this wallet the pilot will have 5% discount on any champ.
         

      3. Silver

        To remain in this portfolio, the pilot will need to meet the requirements contained in the ERL champ rule and obtain an average IE between 25 and 47
         

      4. Bronze

        here will find the rookie riders enrolled in the ERL league  and the other pilots not classified for other portfolios. To remain in this portfolio, the pilot will need to comply with the requirements contained in the ERL champ rule, especially those relating to behavior and presence in the stages. Medium IE below and 25
         

    2. Calculation formula

      In one stage of the championship, the pilot will score points based on the following information:

      Calculation of the Efficiency Index (IE)

      Qty of Participating Pilots / Arrival Position
      Fast Lap +10 bonus
      Pole Position +10 bonus
      Champion +30 bonus
      Vice Champion +20 bonus
      3rd Place +10 Bonus
      Dropping the test - IE=0
      Points in the wallet for penalties. (discounted from IE)

      Calculation of the Efficiency Index (IE)
      (100% / qty of pilots) X (qty of pilots - finish position +1)
      ex: 15 drivers in dispute and you came in 4th
      (100/115)X(15-4+1)
      6.66X12
      your IE=80 (value without bonuses)
