The same applies to Golden Roamer Trophy entrants – they can partner different drivers on different events in different vehicles.

4: Points are awarded by class performance on individual legs.

5: All entrants must compete in a sufficient number of events in order to start at least 6 legs by December 31st, 2017; There are no restrictions on the number of qualifying events from which HERO Cup /Golden Roamer Trophy points may be claimed.

Points will be awarded to the entrant according to the following schedule:

Competitors finishing 1st in class at the end of a leg are awarded 5 HERO Cup points multiplied by the event coefficient.

Competitors finishing 2nd in class at the end of a leg are awarded 4 HERO Cup points multiplied by the event coefficient.

Competitors finishing 3rd in class at the end of a leg are awarded 3 HERO Cup points multiplied by the event coefficient.

Competitors finishing 4th in class at the end of a leg are awarded 2 HERO Cup points multiplied by the event coefficient.

Competitors finishing 5th in class at the end of a leg are awarded 1 HERO Cup point  multiplied by the event coefficient.

No HERO Cup points will be awarded for medal and riband holders.

Class positions will be calculated by ignoring overall positions; i.e 1st overall on the event will be 1st in class for HERO Cup points, not the class position shown in results.

A maximum of 18 legs counts, for points with dropped scores applying for anything over 18 legs.


The Organisers reserve the right to adjudicate on any queries raised regarding the allocation of points. A provisional points table will be published on the HERO website within seven days of the end of each qualifying event and entrants will have a further seven days in which to raise any queries. These must be submitted in writing. If appropriate, a further set of points will be published which will remain open to query for a further seven days from publication. Once this period has expired the points will be considered final and not subject to any further amendment.

The award winners will be announced in accordance with the above schedule and the formal presentation of the HERO Cup will take place at Race Retro in February 2017.



Should the 2017 HERO Cup prizes not be available to the winners for reasons beyond HERO’s control, HERO reserves the right to change the prizes accordingly and will communicate the new prizes to the individual winners.
