2023 OUSCI Points Positioning!

With just one regular points event left in the season we asked OPTIMA Jim to come on and provide a full breakdown of the points standings for OUSCI. In addition to invitations won at events, there are also 3 invitations per class to the highest points standing participants (without an OUSCI invite) along with another 10 from all classes combined.

Thanks to Jim’s professional sports background, analytical mind, some excellent use of the racing crystal ball, and about 5 hours on a multi-tab spreadsheet he has come up with the data that’ll make your head spin. Listen in for a breakdown of where everyone could likely be headed into the final event at VIR!

Here are a few handy links to peruse while you listen as well – enjoy!
