Tiebreaker Notes: there was one tie in the overall age class combined standings, with a 1st place tie in M11 between Carl Fullman and Charlie Hauser with 90 points each. They were also tied on the first tiebreaker-condition of best finish (1-1-2-2), so on the deciding tiebreaker of best (lowest) race points, the 2012 Western Region champion for M11 is... Charlie Hauser!

Western Region Class Champions

The Western Region class championship is awarded to the racer in each age class who accumulates the most world cup points in the four events of the regional championships.
