David’s Observations

·        These grades will come into force on 1 January 2018.  The first grading period of season 2018 will run from 1 March to 15 April inclusive.

·        To be considered for downgrading on 1 May 2018, you must race a minimum of three times between 1 March and 15 April 2018.

·        As this is the final grading list of season 2017, all of the 416 drivers that have raced during the season are included.  However, those drivers who are currently inactive owing to retirement or suspension are shown in red in italic script.

·        Note that the final NS round at Belle Vue on 12 November, although scoring double points for the National Series, only scored single points for grading purposes.

·        International drivers and those drivers who are retired or suspended are shown on the grading list solely for information purposes.  Their inclusion has no effect on the grades of active drivers.  Points, appearances etc., are from meetings attended, that are on the National Fixture List.
