    If you create a custom championship, is it possible to select all points systems? I would love to be able to run a full 2017 season with all tracks as in real life but using the 10-6-4-3-2-1 points system.

    There is a classic championship that I believe runs 14 or so tracks using the classic points. I can check just before the stream tonight when I get access to my PC.
