Can anyone help me to understand how points were allocated in the "Italian Ladies' Championships" that were awarded in the 1960s and 1970s, please?

 

Looking at the (very short) tables for 1965 and 1966, points appear to have been awarded to the best-placed female drivers as if they had been the only contenders; i.e the first woman to finish gets top points, the next gets the haul for second, and so on). However, I cannot quite square off the points allocations (they don't seem to be in the F1-style 9-6-4-3-2-1 format) as there are a few decimals (for example, Rosadele Facetti had a total of 9.6 points in 1966 and scored in just one event...)

 

Thanks!

Can't help you Jon, but regarding Facetti's score for 1966 ( 4th in class according to Speedqueens ) , this seems to have been in a hillclimb so perhaps there was a weighting applied to different types of event and classes therein. Good luck that being the case.........

 

Speedqueens: Rosadele Facetti

I must admit that was my fear, Chris...

Perhaps PM Alessandro Silva Jon. He's not posted for a while so may not come here that often. Fingers crossed.

It might have followed this system.

This is helpful in so far as it confirms that in 1970-71, the Ladies' Championship points system was based on F1-style scoring (9-6-4-3-2-1) for circuit races and a multiplier of 0.5 for Hillclimbs (i.e. 4.5-3-2-1.5-1-0.5).

 

However, I do not think this could have been the system that applied in 1965-1966. In 1965, champion "Swan" was awarded 8 points in a circuit race while in 1966, champion Rosadele Facetti was awarded 5 points in a circuit race and 6 points in each of three hillclimbs, which does not fit with the 1970 scoring system. 

 
Incidentally, can anyone tell me the real name of the driver who raced under the pseudonym "Swan"? I have not been able to find this elsewhere...
