I have been unable to find anywhere that tells me what the scoring system was in the 1965 and 1966 Prototypes Championship. Wikipedia gives the overall scores at the end of the series for 1965 but not the system. For 1966 the scoring system is not clear. Can anyone help please?

The points for 66: 1st=9 2nd=6 3rd=4 4th=3 5th=2 and 6th=1
Hope this answers your question.
for F1

I'm not sure about that as Wikipedia seems to show teams earning 9, 10 or 12 points for a win in 1966 (depending on the race).
For 1965 Ferrari won with 58.5 points and Porsche were second with 30.4: I have no idea what the system was.

I'm pretty sure that there were different points coefficients depending on things like the quality of the field or number of competitors.
e.g. if there was a good quality field, there might be a points coefficient of 1.5, so the instead of 9, 6, 4 etc. they would get  13.5, 9, 6 etc.
unfortunately I don't know what the actual points were but hopefully this helps!

I guessed that might be the case, or something based on the importance of the race (e.g. with Le Mans worth most points) but can't find anything to tell me. I'd appreciate it if anyone who ever finds out lets me know.

Also from the August 1965 issue of R&T , at the end of the 3 race report of Monza,Oulton Park & Spa, By Henry N. Manney :

"How this leaves the Cobras pointwise I dunno, as I can't figure out the markings [Cobra 52.2 to Ferrari 32.2, according
to Motor,Henry--Ed.] but the GTOs have prevailed in the big class at the Targa and Spa while the Cobras were ahead
at Monza and Oulton Park. Whether Porsche gets any extra points for beating the bigger bangers at all the races but
Oulton (no Porsche entries) I don't know. [they don't Henry--Ed.], but they should. At least they have the middle class
wrapped up as the Abarths do in the little. We shall know more after Nurburgring. Pity Porsche doesn't have a 3-liter
eight to stick into the coupe.
