-In the event of a tie in points, the player that had more 1st place victories advances. If that also results in a tie, we will look at second place finishes, followed by third places finishes if there still is a tie. If at that point there is still a tie, we will have a 1 lap race between every player that is tied on a stage that is agreed upon by all parties.

-In the semi-finals, the same rules will apply as before. The top 2 for each set based on points will advance to the finals and prizes will be determined based on point totals in the finals.
