– The Super Heat will take place with the following scoring system to determine the winner: 1st 4 points, 2nd 3 points, 3rd 2 points, 4th 0 points.
– In meetings after heat 15 when the score is level (e.g. 45-45), a Super Heat will be used to determine the winner (winning Super Heat team get 2 league points, losers 1 league point).
– The Super Heat winning team will be reflected as a WD in the league table and the loser as a LD.
– If a meeting is abandoned for any reason after the staging of heat 10, the scores are level and no more heats can take place (e.g. Super Heat), the match will be decided on countback of heat advantages (most 5-1s, most 4-2s etc). Winning team get 2 league points, losers 1 league point.
Aggregate Bonus Point
– When scores are tied for Aggregate Bonus Point then a Super Heat will be staged to determine the winner.
– If the second meeting is a draw and it creates an aggregate draw (eg. 45-45 followed by 45-45) then one Super Heat takes place which counts for not only to decide the meeting winner (2 league points for winner, 1 league point for loser), but also the aggregate bonus point.
– If aggregate scores are level but the second meeting has been abandoned then aggregate bonus point is given on countback of heat advantages (most 5-1s, most 4-2s etc) over the two meetings.
PLAY-OFF PICTURE – HOW IT WORKS
– Top four teams progress to the play-offs (All play-off ties raced over two legs) .
– The semi-final line-up is based on the final league table: 1st v 4th, 2nd v 3rd.
– The winners from the two semi-finals then meet in a two-legged Grand Final to decide Premiership Champions.
– In the event of a tie on aggregate in the semi-final or Grand Final, the outcome will be determined by the Super Heat Format.
One round will be staged at Leicester on June 29.
The event is contested over 23 heats – 21 qualifying races, a semi-final and a final.
The qualifying rounds pit each team against each other once and a 4-3-2-0 scoring format is in place to make team riding crucial, providing an advantage for any pair that finishes second and third over a team with riders in first and last.
The Rising Star (RS) from each club will also be included and must take at least one of his team’s six rides.
The team that finishes top of the scoring chart heads straight into the final.
The teams that finish second and third race against each other in a semi-final. The winner then takes on the team that finished top.
