Double pointsEdit

Before the start of race 12 it was announced that the final race had double points on offer. It was done in a attempt to make the title decider more exciting. However it created some controversy with the fans and the marbles making. It made it less fair for the marbles who had a strong season, but just so happen to have a bad final race or the marbles who have been poor throughout the season, but just so happen to have a good final race.

The double points system for the final race has never returned after the race.

In the end the double points had a great impact on the Sand Marble Rally champion as seen in this table:
