4.34.11 The team score shall be computed from the sum of the scores of the top three pilots of each country in each class in each task grouped together in: - Classes AL1, AL2, WL1, and WL2 - Each valid Paramotor class which has a minimum of 8 pilots.
4.34.12 The task score for which a pilot was disqualified shall not count for team scoring. Other valid tasks flown by this pilot are not affected.
The current team scoring system favours the largest team and is quite often decided before the first person has flown. This was to encourage large teams but it is entirely unfair to the smaller teams who may have performed - on average - better than their opponents.
This system of team scoring would reflect the performance of every team member and would therefore be a reward for the best team. It will have the secondary effect of encouraging greater teamwork within each team to ensure the weaker members are helped and encouraged to improve their performance.
