The past week readers have been able to vote on the question: “If there were, say, 5 race meetings in your local area, would you prefer they were run as a series with a point score, or as standalone events?“.

The results were:
- Series with Point score: 30%
- Standalone events – 48%
- Not fussed either way – 19%
- Other – 3%
