The values assigned to a driver in this competition are not a matter of opinion. It's all based on past performances and a mathematical formula. I'll do my best to explain it here. However a few points to note that may help with your selections.

**The Maths**

Each race meeting will have a **Number of Points Available** which varies based on the number of laps / finishers.

The total value of all the Fantasy BTCC drivers participating in the race meeting gives us the **Total Driver Value**.

So if the combined **Number of Points Scored** by all drivers for a race meeting is 4500, and the combined **Total Driver Value** is 45.00, a driver is *expected* to score 100 points for each 1.00 cost. (4500 / 45.00 = 100). Therefore in this example a driver costing 2.50 needs to score 250 points to break even.

If the driver does better than expected and scores 350 points, they have scored 40% more than expected. The percentage gain is divided by 10 and applied to the drivers value. 40% / 10 = 4% increase. The drivers value will increase from 2.50 to 2.60.

If the driver does worse than expected and scores 50 points, they have undershot their target by 80%. 80% divided by 10 = 8% reduction in value. 2.50 becomes 2.30.

If a driver is not entered or does not take part in any of the timed sessions their value is frozen until they next compete.
