Points system[edit]

Each manufacturer scored points towards the Australian Manufacturers' Championship title from the two highest placed automobiles of its make, in any class (excluding Class I).[1] The title was awarded to the manufacturer that scored the highest total number of class points over all rounds of the championship.[1]

  • In rounds with one scheduled race, points were awarded to manufacturers on a 120–90–72–60–54–48–42–36–30–24–18–12–6 basis for the first thirteen places in each class with 3 points for other finishers.[1]
  • In rounds with two scheduled races, points are awarded to manufacturers on a 60–45–36–30–27–24–21–18–15–12–9–6–3 basis for the first thirteen places in each class in each race with 2 points for other finishers.[1]

Points towards the Australian Production Car Championship outright title were awarded to drivers based on outright finishing positions attained in each race.[1] Points were awarded using the same two scales as used for the Australian Manufacturers' Championship with the addition of two points for the driver setting the fastest qualifying lap in each class at each round.[1]
