The 2008 Australian Production Car Championship was a CAMS sanctioned national motor racing title for drivers of Group 3E Series Production Cars.[1] It was the 15th Australian Production Car Championship to be awarded by CAMS.[2]

Schedule[edit]

The title was contested over a four round series with all rounds run concurrently with those of the 2008 Australian Manufacturers' Championship.[1]

Rounds 1 & 4 were contested over two races and Rounds 2 & 3 over three races.

Points[edit]

Points were awarded to registered drivers for class placings achieved at each race on varying scales depending on the number of competitors in each class at each round.

  • Where six or more cars attempted to qualify for a class, championship points were awarded to registered drivers on a 30–25–22–20–18–16–14–12–10–8 basis for the first ten finishers in that class in each race.
  • Where four or five cars attempted to qualify for a class, championship points were awarded to registered drivers on a 25–20–16–12–10 basis for the first six finishers in the class in each race.
  • Where one, two or three cars attempted to qualify for a class, championship points were awarded to registered drivers on a 20–14–10 basis for the first three finishers in the class in each race.

No points were awarded for outright race placings.

For Rounds 1 & 4, co-drivers, where nominated, were eligible to score points so long as they were registered for the Championship.[1]
