Outright championship points were awarded on a 15-12-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis to the top ten finishers in each race with a bonus point awarded to the driver setting pole position for each round. Class points were awarded on the same basis to the top ten class finishers in each race but with no bonus point for pole position.
