Major Rules Change for 2017 Racers Edge Program
To promote a meaningful Championship Racer's Edge competition, the format for 2017 has changed. There will be no an overall champion, challenger, or rookie of the year. The following racing disciplines will have their own champion:

Autocross Racing (Best 4 0f 5 events)
Drag Racing (Best 4 of 5 events)
Open Road Racing (Both Events))
Mojave Magnum Shootout Racing (Both Events)

Championship awards will be presented during the Annual LVCA Banquet.

Point System

Racers' Edge (RE) was created to get LVCA members involved in competitive driving events. The spectrum of events covered by the Racers' Edge Program includes, but is not limited to; bracket drags, matching time autocrosses, open road challenges, shootout index challenges and various types of rallies and/or funkanas. We will do some combination of these during the year.

To qualify for RE points, you must be a LVCA member and drive or navigate a Corvette.

There is a fee of $40.00 for the whole year, payable at signup, or before RE points can be accrued for any event. Racers' Edge trophies for individual events will be presented to winners at the next general membership meeting if possible; otherwise they will be awarded as soon as possible.

Anyone may compete in any event that we participate in, pay the event fee and are eligible for event awards, if that venue offers awards, but only LVCA Members who are entered in Racers' Edge may win Racers' Edge trophies and earn Racers' Edge points. As an example, if you come out to the Bracket Drags and wish to compete, you will be competing in the Series Bracket Classification for your car, probably Sportsman, but not with the RE's in our Bracket Series. This is similar to running at the SCCA Auto X. You sign up in the classification and can compete for event points or awards, but not RE Points.

Points for Individual Events

Racers' Edge points are awarded, at any scheduled RE event, according to the RE Event specific rules and are not combined with the event's specific points at any time. The points are awarded as follows:
1st = 12 points
2nd = 11 points
3rd = 10 points
4th =9 points
5th = 8 points
6th = 7 Points
7th or Lower =6 Points
Work an event, but not compete = 2 points

The number of RE trophies per event will be determined by the number of entries per event, as follows.

One trophy for 1 - 5 entrants, 2 trophies for 6 - 9 entrants, 3 trophies for 10 or more entrants.

The winners are determined by the criteria for each event. The highest placing RE participant will earn 1st place for the event, the second highest RE participant gets 2nd place, etc., even if they placed lower in the overall event. There may be multiple place winners.

The points will be tallied as follows:

o Autocross RE points will be in order of the closest two matching time trials as posted by the event promoter. Each MTT Auto X event will be counted as RE one event. (If you hit a cone, that run does not count)
o All Bracket Drag Racers will be members of Racers Edge. Bracket Drags RE points will be determined in the normal manner as in any other Bracket Drag Racing competition. The points will be awarded in the normal fashion in the elimination rounds. Anyone who participates or Red-lights will receive a minimum of 6 points. In the event that both participants break out or both red-light in the final round, the winner will be the person who did the least of the worst. (Broke out less or red lighted less in time).
o Open Road Challenge points will be based on closest to perfect time as posted by the event promoters.
o RE Rally points will be based on the participant's order of finish in the rally as compared to other RE participants and not their overall placement.
o Shootout points will be awarded based on the RE participant's closest average to their selected index speed. That average will be based on the two closest runs to their selected index speed in 5 MPH increments. (Read this very carefully) Indexes may be changed, but no previous runs shall be counted. It is the participant's responsibility to insure the RE chairperson has the correct information before and after the runs. We will have a combo round this year for the mile run which will include both days. Same rules apply upon selecting the index in this combo run as mile and one half runs. Competitors may stop counting each day's mile and one half or two day mile combo by notifying the event chairman who will indicate same on the score sheet.

In events where there is a driver and a navigator (Open Road Racing or Rallies), if the driver and navigator are both participating in RE, they will both receive the same number of points and they will both receive a trophy if one is earned. There shall be no tie breakers in each individual event which means there may be multiple winners and second, third, etc., places.

**Changes and corrections to the schedule and rules during the year will be done at the discretion of the RE Chairman.
