KTE News:New World Ranking System

Written by KTE on . Posted in News

The IKA presents the new World Ranking System for 2014.

World Ranking Point Calculation 2014

 

The ISAF grading criteria will apply for Formula Kite events. Details can be found here.

 

KiteFoil events are graded as follows:

Grade 1: prize money of 20000 and more

Grade 2: prize money of 10000 and more

Grade 3: prize money of 5000 and more

Grade 4: less than 5000 prize money

 

For TTR (Twin Tip Racing) events, any international tour event or events held in conjunction with major Formula Kite or KiteFoil Grade 1 and 2 events, will be graded 50 points. All other events (nationals, weekend warriors) will be graded 20 points.

 

Points towards the world ranking are calculated as follows:

 

X = F x (N+1-Rank)/N

 

Explanation:

 

X = Ranking scored by a competitor at an event

 

 

N = number of competitors

 

F = Basefactor (200, 100, 50 or 20)

 

 

 

World Rankings from 2014 onwards

 

 

The points of each competitors best 6 events within the last 12 months will be added with the limitation that only a maximum of 3 major events (200 pointers and 100 pointers) may be scored for the Formula Kite World Ranking. The actual ranking position will be based on the sum of ranking points. The competitor with most points is the first.

 

The ranking list is a continuous system. After 12 months the points are deleted.
