    Regulations, similar rule in the BTCC. Except the cars must be nominated in the BTCC.

    16. a) The FIA World Touring Car Champion Drivers’ title will be awarded to the driver who has scored the highest number of points, taking into consideration all the results obtained during the Events which have actually taken place.

    b) The FIA World Touring Car Champion Manufacturers’ title will be awarded to the Manufacturer which has scored the highest number of points, taking into account all the results obtained by the best two cars classified per manufacturer during the Events which have actually taken place. All the other cars of that same manufacturer will be invisible as far as scoring points is concerned.

    17. Points for all titles will be awarded for each race at each Event according to the following scale:
    1st : 10 points
    2nd : 8 points
    3rd : 6 points
    4th : 5 points
    5th : 4 points
    6th : 3 points
    7th : 2 points
    8th : 1 point

    All the results obtained during the season will count for the final classifications.

    Please don't ask me to explain the success ballast, because that's really complicated :D

    Something like that, i think your right. :cartman:

    Yep i believe that's the way it works, hence why they haven't romped off with the manufacturers lead as much as you might expect.

    Right you asked for it. :)

    SUCCESS BALLAST
    79. «Success ballast» will be applied as follows:
    a) To all the drivers having scored Championship points as follows: 1 kg per point.
    b) To all the drivers taking part in each Championship event, according to the sum of the points obtained in the two races. “Success ballast” is imposed according to the following scale and is applied only for the following Event in which the driver takes part:

    1st: + 30 kg
    2nd: + 25 kg
    3rd: + 20 kg
    4th: + 15 kg
    5th: + 10 kg
    6th: + 5 kg


    In the case of drivers having scored the same number of points at the end of an Event, the highest handicap fixed for the relevant positions will be applied to all; i.e. if two drivers are classified equal 3rd, they will be given the 20 kg handicap weight for 3rd place, while the 15 kg handicap weight handicap for 4th place will not be awarded.

    c) A 30 kg ballast weight will automatically be allocated to each driver entered on a race-by-race basis as defined in Article 36 d) of the present regulations. For the last Event of the season, an average of the top five success ballast weights calculated for the Event concerned will be applied to all drivers who are not entered for the full season as defined in Article 36 a).

    d) Handicap weights a), b) and c) will be cumulative.

    However, the maximum “success ballast” when theabove three ballast weights are applied shall not exceed 70 kg.
