6.1 WMRC determines for each of the circuits indicated in 5.1 and 5.2 a „Superlap Time“ for the WMRC Best Lap Motorcycle Championship and a „Superlap Time“ for the Best Lap Car Championship. Those Superlap Times are the Circuit Record Laps achieved in the official Motorcycle and Car World Championships. The Superlap Time is the time, WMRC Best Lap Championship Participants have to measure their ridden times with. The Superlap Time therefore is the „target lap time“ for WMRC Best Lap Championship Participants.
6.2 In case on some circuits have not taken place any recent Motorcycle and Car World Championships (MotoGP/F1), the Superlap Time is calculated by circuit lap records of secondary Championships (e.g. WSBK/DTM) substracting a Handicap. In this way, those lap record times of the secondary Championships are in line with the World Championships times. For example, on a motorcycle track, where is no MotoGP, but only a WSBK lap record, the WSBK lap record will have a current handicap of -2.5%. However on a track, where is no MotoGP neither a WSBK but a National SBK lap record, this National SBK lap record will have a handicap of -3.0%. Same for cars: On tracks with no F1, but DTM lap records, there will be a handicap of -27%. Those handicaps will be substracted in order to meet an all tracks MotoGP and F1 lap record time levels.
6.3 Superlap times are listed on www.worldmotorracingclub.com. Superlap times as well as handicaps are continuously calculated based on the most recent lap records and comparisons between the various Championships and might change during the year.

In the end of the racing year, the WMRC Best Lap Championship Winner will be whose WMRC Best Lap Championship Time is nearest to the Superlap Time (in %).
