2022-01-31 - Ignition System Points Clarification

Reading the BCCR has revealed the following point adders:
• Distributor, non-OE, or aftermarket ignition system: 20 pts
• Ignition coil(s), aftermarket: 10 pts

Does “Distributor, non-OE , or aftermarket ignition system” include coil(s), if any?

Would the Coils have to be considered separately from the “ignition system” mentioned above?

Does qty 8 coils count as “Ignition coil(s), aftermarket” and therefore only 10pts or are they 10pts each and thus 80pts?


Distributor, non-OE, or aftermarket ignition SYSTEM = 20 points - Tells me coils are included.
Coil(s) - Tells me however many = 10 points.

If you claim a 20 point ignition system you get the coils.
