The scoring system in use from Season 2 onwards for Atomic Sim Racing has been the "VLN" system. Though not without a degree of confusion and controversy, this system allocates points to all competitors who finish the races. The points allocated to each position is a variable depending on how many competitors start the race. Simply, the more people you finish ahead of, the more points you get.
In season 2 100% of the VLN points were assigned to feature races and 50% for sprint races, however this season will see the move to 100% points allocation to all races. Sprint races are now as critical to the championship as the feature races.
