Recently I have been getting a lot of questions about Nationals, PCR’s and VIC’s.
What the heck is a PCR? Well I will do my best to explain them. Come and find me at the track if this doesn’t make sense.
I have attached the 2012 ABA rule book to help answer any questions that you might have.
What is a PCR or Provincial Cup Qualifier Race?
A PCR is a provincial cup qualifier race.
- It’s a double point race series all over the province throughout the year with a final.
- You have to race any 3 races plus the final to qualify for a provincial ranking.
- You can race all the PCR’s on the island and not go to the final.
- The final is August 26th in Vernon.
- They take your best three PCR totals plus the final for your ranking
What is a VIC or Vancouver Island Challenge race?
VIC or Vancouver Island Challenges work the same as the Provincial series only they are a single point race and are just on Vancouver Island
- You must race 3 races plus the final to qualify to be the VIC champion.
How does the Canadian National System Work?
There are 4 Canadian National Events plus a Canadian Grand National
- There is a prerace on the Friday night and is a double point race (Not a national race).
- Each Saturday and Sunday of the National Event plus the Saturday of the Grand National weekend is classified as an individual National.
- That makes a total of nine Nationals during the year and they are considered triple point races.
- The Final on the Sunday of the Grand National is a Quadruple point race.
- National scores are tabulated by using your best 6 National scores plus the Grand National final for each age group.
