Changes to Team scoring for Paramotor classes
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.
It is a bit silly to award Team medals for Classes that are undersubscribed, when often you know the results in advance, purely based on the number of aircraft some nations have entered.
Having only one Team score across all the Paramotor classes would be more meaningful, as long as only the Classes that are well subscribed do score towards it.
A similar proposal for Classic Classes has been put forward
Same proposed text as Option A but replacing “top three aircraft of each country" by “top five aircraft of each country”.
