2-handed Irish rankings - scoring system

Right, many have asked how I intend to “rank” 2-handers considering some take part in the ISORA, others not, and that the Round Ireland Race should really feature prominently considering its length.

Well, put simply, I am not going to re-invent the wheel and after scouring for points system solution, I have decided to apply the same scoring system than RORC (based on the Cox-Sprague system).

The scoring is a function of the number of starters and a “race coefficient” reflecting the length and difficulty of the race.

The “race coefficients” applied for the Irish race calendar are:

ISORA < 75NM => race coefficient = 1

ISORA > 75NM => race coefficient = 1.2

Round Ireland 2-handed => race coefficient = 1.6

Applying the above rules gives us the following provisional overall standings for the 2-handed Irish circuit:

If I have omitted any somebody or some race, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
