Interesting idea, but I'd like to bring up a few concerns. I think if CCS went this direction there would be alot of ties. Some classes have one fast guy that usually wins every race. As such, I think there would be a few classes where riders get the maximum number of points possible resulting in a tie.
Also, with this proposed rule, a rider would pretty much have no hope to win the overall if they missed one race weekend due to mechanical or some other issue. With the current system there is at least some leeway to make up for issues like this.
You said that the current system "gives an unfair advantage to the racers with middle-weight and to an extent ultra-weight motorcycles since they can race “up” in a class and score points." However in my opinion, I do not believe this to be true. Its true that smaller bike have the ability to race up and potentially score more points, but they are at a speed disadvantage when they do this negating any unfair advantage. If the riders are of equal talent a higher horsepower bike should win against a lower horsepower bike everytime. And since overall points are multiplied by Performance index as well, it actually hurts alot of riders to ride up because they tend to place lower and thus lower their PI and thus their total points. For the most part this PI system takes away any advantage the smaller bikes may have.
I believe that the overall points champion should be the racer who on average raced the most races with the best results. A rider who takes 10/10 1st's shouldnt beat a rider who took 20/20 1st's. Right? Lets say a lightweight rider enters just one lightweight class and wins every race for the season. Then lets say a middleweight rider enters multiple classes and wins every race for all those classes. In your system they would tie. which I dont think is fair because the rider that did more races showed greater consistency in his racing. Now dont get me wrong, I dont believe the current system is perfect, but I think it would be better than going off just one class. Just my opinion. I appreciate your idea!
