@3m What's 75% distance got to do with anything? Have you been listening to Cal making up is own rules? Actually I suspect Cal was joking because he did laugh as he said it.

The rules are very very clear the race can be declared as complete and full points awarded at 2/3 distance rounded down to the nearest whole lap. So in this case 13 laps. If it's less than that distance it would be half points. If it was under three laps it would be zero points.

The only place 75% comes into it is that a rider will only be declared as a finisher if he has completed 75% the number of laps of the winner. Imagine if one of the fallers had remounted and finished four laps behind Dani (and got back to the pits within five minutes!). Even though that rider may have been in 14th place today they would not have got the two points because they would not have completed 75% the distance that Dani did.
