Notes

“Last Season in Premier” is calculated for results up to 2 May 2022.  Future results may extend drivers’ stay in Premier Grade



As there was no open class National Finals in 2020:-
2019 National Finalists remain in Premier for 2022 rather than the normal 2 years

2018 National Champions remain in Premier for 2024 rather than the normal 5 years



As there was no British Open Championships in 2020 or 2021:-
The 2019 BOC top 5 remain in Premier for 2023 rather than the normal 2 years

The 2018 BOC top 5 remain in Premier for 2022 rather than the normal 2 years




Changes for 2023

The drivers changing grades  so far are :-

Gordon Dickson, Peter Donely and Mike Read will go up to Premier grade  from 1st January 2023 because of their 2022 Nationals results
Ian Howard will go up to Main grade  from 1
st January 2023 because of his 2019 Nats saloon result and 2022 Nats sports result

Simon Scott will go up to Main grade  from 1st January 2023 because of his 2022 Clubman Nationals results
