How to win a prize.

Among the participants in the championship, players whose performances recorded on each of the 6 circuits represent the top 3 performances will be declared as the winners.

1st, 2nd and 3rd place (corresponding to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes) will be attributed on the basis of the best absolute average calculated as follows:

- For each of the three winners, the sum of their times on each of the 6 circuits (i.e. 6 times) divided by 6.


- The best average takes 1st prize, the second best 2nd prize, etc.


- In the event of a tie for first place, the time performed on the Aspen Winter circuit will settle it. If there is still a tie for first place, the time performed on the Canada Autumn circuit will be taken into account.


12.

12/ The taking into account of the times recorded sent by post or e-mail will only be valid after verification of the memory card by Ubi Soft (or bailiff). In concrete terms, once the replies received have been examined, possible winners must subsequently return their memory card by registered post to Ubi Soft. After verification, the prizes will be attributed and the memory cards returned. No mail will be exchanged with the losers.
