The answer to the orginal question is:
Novices earn class points is all classes, whether it be FII, NV4, 250 Vintage, or Middleweight Supersport. Novices are excluded from 600 SS and up, therefore have to run NV4/5. Those classes do NOT earn Clubman Championship points (NV4/5) since they compete exclusively against Novices,. The NV1/2/3 Novices, who compete against Experts, DO earn Clubman and Vintage Championship points.
This was apporved by the board and published in the original 2011 rulebook, but it couldn't be excecuted last season becasue we didn't set up the database prior to season starting. This year it was set up correctly.
