Changes to team scoring for microlights
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.
The current way of scoring Teams in Classic classes often means that the results are know before the competition starts in advance, purely based on the number of aircraft some nations have entered.
It would be more meaningful to reward the Teams’ performance by quality rather than quantity, with more nations fighting for a place on the podium.
This change would accommodate the new Gyro classes as and when they become approved
Same proposed text as Option A but replacing “top three aircraft of each country" by “top five aircraft of each country”.
