Each pass "behind the hill" between touch and go passes is worth 100 points. Inverted is 200 points.

Speed Run - Take-off and fly four laps around the runway length and land. Total Time is recorded from wheels up to wheels down. Draw a card for taking off, and another for completing the laps and landing on the runway. Time is subtracted from 100 to get the score.
