BriSCA F1 Grades

Drivers line up on the grid according to their roof colour which is determined by the number of points they have scored. The Grading List is calculated on a monthly basis so drivers may change grade several times per season.

The top twenty drivers in the list are ‘star’ and have red roofs and start at the rear of the grid. In addition the top five of those drivers have flashing lights and are classed as ‘superstar’, they start behind the other reds.

The next seventeen drivers are ‘A grade’ and have blue roofs. The following thirty three drivers are ‘B grade’ and have yellow roofs.

All other drivers are classed as ‘C grade’ drivers and have white roofs.

There are many exceptions to the above grading rules dependant on past history, average scores and number of meetings raced in the grading period.

In addition the current World Champion wears a gold roof, the previous season’s National Points Champion wears a silver roof and these two drivers are classed as superstar grade regardless of their position in the points list.

The British Champion wears a black and white check roof, the European Champion wears a red and yellow check roof and these two drivers are classed as minimum ‘star’ grade regardless of their position in the points list
