Points for these can be earned in all events except motorkhanas and trials.

Points are allocated for places in the individual classes as per the points scored in the mens/womens championships.

The official HBCC definition for deciding which cars are eligible for saloon or sports racing classes is:

"A 'Saloon Car' is a car with a body (or replica) of a manufactured design made for road going purposes. A 'Sports Racing Car/Special' is a racing type single seater, either manufactured or home made for racing purposes only".
  
Classics

Cars running in classes H and T must be approved by the class Eligibility Committee (refer the club listings at the front of the magazine) and be registered prior to being able to enter and score points in either of these classes.

All sealed events run by the HBCC count as rounds of these two class championships.

Points for placings in each class are awarded on the same basis as those outlined for the mens and womens championships.
 

Autocross Championship

Overall places count towards the Autocross Championship.

Points are awarded on the same basis as those outlined for the mens and womens championships.

Points are also gained towards the Speed Class Championships (not H and T).
 

Motorkhana Championship

Overall places count towards the Motorkhana Championship.

Points are awarded on the same basis as those outlined for the mens and womens championships.
 

Trials Championships

Drivers, Navigators and Timekeepers receive points for the three trailing championships based on the overall place of their car in the event. ie. If only one car had a timekeeper and it finished seventh in the trial, then the timekeeper gets seventh place points.

Drivers, navigators and timekeepers are all eligible to score points in the mens and womens championships. People of the same gender in the same car score the same points.

Organisers of trials are awarded first place points in whichever championship they normally compete.
 

Junior Championship

All members of the HBCC between the ages of 12 to 18 years as of January 1st of the year of the championship are eligible.

The events counting towards the Junior Championship are all championship autocrosses and motorkhanas.

Points are awarded on the same basis as those outlined for the mens and womens championships, based on the finishing order of the eligible entrants.
 

Notes:

If two drivers compete in the same car, both drivers are eligible for class and mens/womens championship points.

A driver may compete in an event in more than one car. However, he/she is only eligible to score class or mens/womens championship points for one car. The competitor should indicate which vehicle he wishes to score points with before the event. If this is not done the Clerk of Course will decide which vehicle will be awarded points. Both cars will be eligible for appropriate overall or class prizes, certificates etc.

For the awarding of championship points, the drivers placed behind an entry ineligible for points will be considered to move up one placing, and so on down the field.

The final decision on whether or not multiple entries (cars or dual drivers) are allowed rests solely with the Clerk of Course, depending on the circumstances on the day.

In a rally both the driver and the navigator are eligible for mens/womens championship points. Only the driver can gain class points.

Only the driver is eligible for any points in a rallysprint.
