RULES IN THE EVENT OF A TIE DURING A GP EVENT

After the completion of Heat 20, 21 or 22:

When establishing the order between riders at the conclusion of Heat 20, or following the completion of the semi-finals (Heats 21 and 22), any ties will be solved as follows:

  • Precedence will be given to the tied rider that has the most amount of 1st places (then 2nd places, then 3rd places).
  • If they still cannot be separated, their placing will be determined by their head to head heat result.
  • If the tie still persists and involves more than 2 riders, it shall be checked whether there is a possibility to determine a proper precedence (Riders A, B & C) eg:

    • Rider A has beaten rider B
    • Rider A has beaten rider C
    • Rider B has beaten rider C

Rider A would be ranked ahead of rider B then rider C

  • If none of these solutions can resolve the tie, the precedence will go to the GP ranking of the rider from the start of the season.

RULES IN THE EVENT OF A TIE IN THE OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS

  • If riders are tied in the Final FIM Speedway Grand Prix Championship Standings, the following will apply:
  • Run-off for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place
  • Run off for 8th place (the final automatic qualification place for the following year's Grand Prix Series
  • For all other placings, the lowest riding number jacket will be considered the better-placed rider.
