We are considering changing to allow the top 15 finishers score points. The thought process behind the change is to keep more people at the back interested since they are more likely to score points, and reduce the occurrence of a rage quit when you get far behind in the race. The management has looked at many points structures and feel simply adding 5 points to what is there now and allowing 5 more positions is the easiest and best change. 
This would be the new points structure:
01. 30pts (25 + 5)
02. 23pts (18 + 5)
03. 20pts (15 + 5)
04. 17pts (12 + 5)
05. 15pts (10 + 5)
06. 13pts (8 + 5)
07. 11pts (6 + 5)
08. 9pts (4 + 5)
09. 7pts (2 + 5)
10. 6pts (1 + 5)
11. 5pts
12. 4pts
13. 3pts
14. 2pts
15. 1pts
We'd like to hear the opinions of the driver on whether we should make the change. Please post that you have voted in the thread.

I swear we just had this vote recently idk why we keep trying to give out participation trophies

This is something that is being called for in almost every championship that runs on PRL. Not everyone has full grids all season like we do. I understand your position, but look at it from the person who finishes 11-13th every race yet is not ahead of a driver who finishes 18th each week in the standings. It's to help the overall health of all F1 series on PRL, including this one.

Also, this system would keep the same gaps as the old point system, it's simply adding 5 additional point scoring positions.

Unless you finish 12-15 then you're losing more points out to leader than standard system
