    I dont know how your calculator works, but Libre Office, excel and my windows calc comes up with this

    And he is even 8th if you let the position figure out the tie.

    Participation means you have participated in one way or another, so if i see you in the results, you get points for being there.
    A simple mistake, its not super rocket science, its manual adding points to a sheet.

    Ok, so I have recorded a lap in the practice session, after that I couldn't get back due to game issues, can I be awarded the points?

    I know there is a drop round but losing those points basically puts me in split 2 for the rest of the season as it seems like they count for promotion/demotion, because Christian Malghera was dropped to split 2 as well despite being 24th in points scored when not counting participation points.

    Promotion and Demotion are solely based on the position-points from the last 2 races. The participation points are only relevant for the overall points at the end of the season. @Matheus Machado

    As an example: You could go from Split 3 to Split 2 in the first 2 races, then miss round 3 & 4 which would drop you back down into split 3 and finally promote back up into split 2 in the last 2 races. Obviously you won't have enough overall points to get a shot at Pro-Split with this, but that is generally really hard if you're not in Split 1 from the start.

    Hope that helps.

    Here's also the official explanation:

    "While the Challenge Series has an overall ranking which determines who goes up to Pro Series or Relegation after the Season (which is 6 Rounds long), after every 2nd race we are looking at the points accumulated in just those 2 races to determine the promotion/demotion between splits. Means, if you are Top 5 of split 2 in terms of scoring in those 2 races, you will start in split 1 for the next races, if you are (as another example) bottom 5 of split one in terms of scoring in the last 2 races, you will start in split 2 in the next races. As you can see, the grids in Challenge are more fluid and with this we try to always match you with a great group to race. Promotion/Demotion between split 1 and Pro Series only happens once a season tho, after all rounds have been finished, based on Overall Points."

    The way I read I understood the same, but seeing Chris Sheperd is still listed as split 1 while having scored 5 points in both races participation aside, I assume it does take participation points into account.

    Then I may be wrong and stand corrected if that is indeed the case.
