Example:
German Ace Point System:

100 –(Place – 1)*(Number of Scoring birds/100)
For example 40th place with 900 pigeons in race:
100 – (40-1)*(300/100) = 87,00 Ace-Points (from 100 possible)

Example 1) Race 260 km, 900 pigeons in race:
33,1/3% = 300 winning pigeons.

1st Place = 126 Points (100 + 26 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 260 km)
2nd Place = 125,67 Points (99,67 + 26 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 260 km)
100th Place = 93,00 Points (67,00 + 26 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 260 km)
300th Place = 26,33 Points (0,33 Points + 26 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 260 km)
301st Place = 0 Points
Etc…

For example Team 2nd and 100th Place = 218,67 Points for European OLR CUP

Example 2) Final 510 km, 482 pigeons in race:
33,1/3% = 161 winning pigeons.

1st Place = 151 Points (100 + 51 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 510 km)
2nd Place = 150,38 Points (99,38 + 51 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 510 km)
100th Place = 89,38 Points (38,38 + 51 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 510 km)
161st Place = 51,41 Points (0,41 Punkte + 51 Points / Ace Points + 1/10 km from 510 km)
162nd Place = 0 Points
Etc…

For example Team 2nd and 100th Place = 240,38 Points for European OLR CUP
