Discussion: When you said double points...

When you said double points was thinking of demerit points, as features heavily in the dubbo weekend a few years ago.

Similar scenario.

You get double points for turning up and running fast at a well organised event rather than double points for driving fast on a well organised holiday.

Orienteers set the points whilst police set the traps.

Treat a championship seriously rather than treating roads like a championship.

Points in one you have a licence to win; points in the other your licence you lose.

Fast splits to the top; split too fast you stop.

Another approach would be for state champs to count as 2 events. So a winner would get 100 + 100. If you don't compete or do poorly you need to win 2 non-champ events to match the winner. Probably need to count more than 7 results though.

I think that would be a better way to do it.... if there was a good reason to. Meanwhile to win the State League the rest of the events are meaningless as far as I am concerned except of course for the NSW Sprint Champs, where I have to score at least an 85 (170) to win the League overall.
