How many points is a checkpoint worth?
Normally there are 30 checkpoints and they are assigned values between 5 and 30 points, generally a multiple of 5 points.
However, it sometimes makes sense for the event organiser to deviate from this based on the map area being used for the event. It might make sense to make a single checkpoint on a fun section of single track 50 points so everyone is encouraged to enjoy it and pop some low point checkpoints in the extremities of the map so the really competitive types have to commit to going all out to make the difference between a high score and a really high score.
