The GPM championship is the main championship contested all season long. Drivers score points across all three races per meeting whilst also scoring points for each race started and one more for race attendance. Throughout the season the leader of the points championship will change constantly, with the championship usually coming down to the last race of the season. 

There are two different types of cars in the championship, with either rear or side engine configurations. So within the main championship, drivers will also compete to have the best car in their class. 

This is definitely something to monitor throughout the season.
