I?m glad to inform you about the International Stunts Master 2008
ISM 2008 is planned from 15 December 2007 to 29 January 2008 and it will see engaged the first 10 drivers of Stunts World Ranking in order of the rank updated at 3rd December 2007* (see at bottom for the details). The formula of the event will be quite different from last edition and it will include two distinct round.ELIMINATORY ROUND15 December 2007 - 07 January 2008 / Checkpoints: 23 and 30 December 20071) Drivers will race divided in 2 groups and all will have to race on 2 tracks (the same for both groups): Group A
1st classified SWR
4th classified SWR
5th classified SWR
8th classified SWR
9th classified SWRGroup B
2nd classified SWR
3rd classified SWR
6th classified SWR
7th classified SWR
10th classified SWR
In each group, 1st driver at every checkpoint will gain 1? bonus on his final time (this vales for both tracks).
In each group, 2nd driver at every checkpoint will gain 0?50 bonus on his final time (this vales for both tracks).
In each group, 3rd driver at every checkpoint will gain 0?30 bonus on his final time (this vales for both tracks).
For 2nd Checkpoint, Bonus Time will be assigned to a driver who had sent a previous time only if his new time is at least 3% lower than previous.
In this round scoreboards will be update just after every checkpoint. This means every driver won't know the results of the opponents before every checkpoint. This vales for event manager too (if he will participate), because he will check (with RPLINFO) all replays just after every checkpoint. 2) 7 drivers will accede at final round in this way:
Firsts 2 sum of times of each group and 3 better sum of times of other 6 drivers not directly qualified.FINAL ROUND10 January 2008 - 29 January 2008 / LTB Standard Rule7 drivers from previous round will have to race in a 3rd final track.
