Teams
There are three Viking teams called:
Hagar, Asterix, Obelix.

All Club members and visitors are assigned to one of the Viking teams. Teams members are assigned to each team by selection by the Team Principals before the first race of the year. The 3rd placed Team Principal choses a member from the entire list of club racers from the previous year. Then, the 2nd placed Team principal choses a member. This continues until all members are selected.

Team Principals/Captains
The Team Principals are assigned annually. The Principals are the drivers accumulating the most VIKING CHAMPIONSHIP points in the preceding year.
Team Principal’s objectives are to see that best practices of car preparation and racing techniques are encouraged in their teams.

How each competition works:

The ‘VIKING CHAMPIONSHIP’ is won by the driver who amasses the most points in the VIKING CHAMPIONSHIP races.

The top drivers become Team Principals for the following year.
