Like 2015 – there are 6 points race weekends (12 races) but only the best 10 of 12 will count, which allows a racer to miss a weekend or a race due to breakage and still have a shot at the Championship, so racers will drop their worst two leading into the Championship wkd (Labour day wkd) . Championship wkd races cannot be dropped.
