Modstox rules on grading (rulebook page 16-17, section 3)

  • Modstox operates a handicapped starting/race line-up system. Roof grades are taken on a total points basis. A new grading list will be issued after every 4 meetings or 3 if required at the end of a season.

  • Grades in descending order of achievement: Gold roof and silver roof, Superstars, reds, blues, yellows, remainder white tops. Graders will use discretion to increase and decrease the numbers in each grade to suit increasing number of drivers during a season. New drivers may opt to start at rear of grid for their first three meetings. Drivers exercising this option should have a black cross markings displayed on the rear of their car.

  • The Shaleshifter Champion is worthy of Superstar status and will start at that grade for the time that they hold the Championship. If they lose the championship they will go to either red or blue grade (points depending). 

  • A driver’s grade will always be elevated irrespective of how many meetings they have attended during a grading period, however if a driver is set to drop a grade but has only attended one meeting, they will be allowed to retain their grade for one further grading period only.

  • Once a Driver has attained red top status, the driver cannot be re-graded lower than Yellow. Any driver who has reached Superstar cannot ever drop below blue. These drivers will start between the red grades and gold and silver grades. Racers from other formulas shall commence at their retiring grade less 1 i.e. if were blue start as yellow. A driver returning to racing after a time off will race at their previously held grade. On winning a final you will start at the back of your grade until the next grading period.
