It was sort of the intention that you win and you go to top gun forever. So if you had a closed sample group eventually everyone would get the trophy in the main group. Of course in reality there's always new people and only one person moves to top gun each year meaning the "yet unnamed" group will likely always remain the largest and be very competitive.

Nope - open to suggestions. I've heard of clubs using Top Dog and Underdog or Pro and Amateur or "Best of the Rest", but those sound demeaning. The intent is actually the opposite - we want top gun to be the outcasts and the main group to be the standard
Nice driving for someone without a chance of winning.
I was shocked - I was pretty sure Rob was untouchable. Hence the question of the "Rob Rule" - I think it's quite possible that he could win top gun

Yes - we've talked about a novice series before. From a scoring perspective I can make it happen quite easily. We usually come up with 2 issues:
#1 - We don't necessarily have enough people to count only first year people. Being #1 when only 2 novices have enough events doesn't seem worth the effort. Maybe first two years?
#2 - Counting 75% of the events doesn't work so well for people that start part way through the year. Maybe count 40% of the total events? Or minimum 5 events and use average score? Or just best 5 races? I sort of prefer just best 5 races (or 6? Or 7?) because it does somewhat favor those who attend more events.
Anybody have thoughts/suggestions? Post or PM me....
