For every race the points were awarded: 31 points to the winner, 27 for runner-up, 25 for third place, 23 for fourth place, 21 for fifth place, 19 for sixth place, 17 for seventh place, 15 for eighth place, 13 for ninth place, 11 for tenth place, winding down to 1 point for 20th place. Lower placed drivers did not award points. Additional points were awarded to the fastest qualifier on Friday (1 point), the fastest qualifier on Saturday (1 point), any driver leading at least one lap in the race (1 point), the most improved driver from start to finish (1 point) and the driver setting the fastest lap (1 point). So the maximum points for one driver in one race is to earn 35 points. C2-class drivers were not able to score points in the main class.
