Drivers Points Classification (Top 5)Edit
** David Bogie finished third overall on the Colin McRae Forest Stages but, having already won the SRC title, was not registered for SRC points. This was to avoid affecting championship runner-up positions.
Points are awarded to the highest placed registered driver on each event as follows: 30, 28, 27, 26, and so on down to 1 point. At the end of the Championship, competitors will nominate their best 6 scores out of the 8 events as his/her final overall Championship score.
