10.3 Resolving Ties in the Final Scores

10.3.1 A tie is 2 drivers with the same point total, will decided from highest average finish

10.3.2 In case of a tie in the final Driver championship point standings, the tie shall be resolved according to the highest ranked Driver s record of first place points finishes, and then if necessary, the number of second place points finishes, and so on down to the last championship points position for the Series. If a tie still remains, the tie shall be broken by the first to achieve the highest points finishing position in that season for that Series. If after the drop rounds, there is a tie, we will go to the finishing positions, and the driver with the highest average finishing position will take the lead points.

 

10.4 Team Championships

10.4.1 Teams with 3 or more drivers may compete in a team championship as well. We encourage you to have more to cover for drivers that might miss a round.

10.4.2 The top 3 scoring drivers from each team will score points towards their teams championship points. Bonus points such as FL do not count towards team points.

10.4.3 If a team drops below 3 drivers, their points are removed, and will not be counted towards the team championship

10.4.4 If any team member is disqualified from the series for any reason, their points will be removed. The replacement drivers points will be brought with them into the team championship.

10.4.5 - Teams will only score points in each round, if they have the minimum 3 drivers compete in each round. Example, in round 2, if only 2 of the team drivers participate in that round, then zero points will for scored for that team for that round.

 

10.5 Driver Scoring for unfinished races

10.5.1 A drivers race will be considered completed when passing the 75% race distance.

10.5.2 If a driver does not complete 75% or more of the race distance, regardless of a hardware disconnect, rage quit or otherwise, their points will not be scored, and the FL times will not be counted.

10.5.3 If a driver does complete 75% or more of the race distance, their points will be scored, and the FL times will be counted, unless there is a clear indication that they left the lobby on purpose, such as a rage quit or parking in the pits. The driver must provide a reasonable excuse for why they left or parked in the pits, if they wish to retain points and position times.

11. Dropped Round(s)

There are no drop rounds

12. Attendance

12.1 Missed Rounds

12.1.1 A driver who cannot make a round, and RSVP s no for that round, will be able to return the following round, without having to make their way out of the bubble list. This option is granted only one time, and only if they properly rsvp d. Drivers that return for the following round, will be placed directly after the last (slowest) driver in their class on the grid. AS an example, if a Pro driver must miss a round, then they would rsvp no and let the staff know, then when they return for the next round, they will rsvp yes , and once the rsvp period closes, they will be placed on the grid directly behind the rsvp d Pro driver with the slowest FL time from the previous round. This opportunity will be given only once during the season. After that, section 12.1.4 applies.

12.1.2 A driver who misses a round, must start in the back of the bubble driver list (see section 12.2). Bubble drivers who wish to become full time drivers will have first chance at replacing the driver who missed the previous round, and take their full time spot.

12.1.3 The full time driver who went to the back of the bubble list, will have to wait for a spot to open up in turn. Once they obtain a spot and complete the next race, then their FL time will be calculated as normal and they will be placed in their appropriate lobby.

12.1.4 If a driver misses 2 rounds, then they are dropped to the bottom of the bubble list period. Hardware or software disconnects do not count as a miss. A rage quit or parking in the pits (see section 10.4.2 and 10.4.3) do count as a forfeit or a no show.

 

12.2 Bubble List

The bubble list is a list of drivers outside of the full time driver list. There are only 75 spots per race weekend (lobbies 1-5). If drivers do not RSVP, or are otherwise not competing in a race weekend, the bubble list is used to fill in from the bottom.

12.2.1 When 1 of the 75 spots becomes available, the first driver at the top of the bubble list, that has RSVP d as a Bubble  driver, will obtain that open spot. We will go down that bubble list until all 75 spots are filled for a race weekend. Bubble/bubble list drivers will start in the back of lobby 5.

12.2.2 Bubble drivers who obtain a spot in a race, are entitled to race in the following race, over other bubble drivers, even if other bubble drivers were ranked higher, but could not compete for any reason. If a full time driver returns (see section 12.1.1) and there are no spots left open, then the driver retains the right to the first open spot as mentioned earlier in this section, they would then be placed at the back of their class on the grid.

13. Mid-Season Registration

13.1 New Drivers

13.1.1 Final 3 rounds not available. New drivers may not join the series for the final 3 rounds.

13.1.2 New drivers are placed at the bottom of the bubble list (see section 12.2) until a spot opens up.

14. Penalties

14.1 Shortcut and Pit Lane

Shortcut penalties are set to weak and pit lane penalties are on.

14.2 Contact Incidents

14.2.1 Contact/Punting

Any contact that culminates in heavy damage to another vehicle will be given a drive through penalty in the next race.

If the contact happens in the final round, stewards reserve the right to adjust time/position according to the severity of the incident. Most penalties will result in a position change and not a time penalty. Because the replay s cannot be shared, the stewarding team will use position penalties or drive through penalties in the stewarding process.

14.2.2 Aggressive driving

Aggressive drivers will be given 1 warning, after which they will be given more severe penalties.

Aggressive driving can mean anything from dive bombing, pushing, blocking, or unsafe maneuvers.

14.2.3 Steward Review

Contact incidents will be reviewed by the stewards after the race.

Contact incidents will result in penalties based on the severity of the incident.

 

HEAVY damage is active to discourage contact incidents.

 

14.2 Types of Penalties

14.2.1 Drivers may receive drive-through penalties, time penalties, position penalties, or race disqualifications, depending on what the stewards determine is appropriate. The stewards may disqualify a driver from a season outright depending on the severity of an incident.

 

14.3 Required Compound Penalties

14.3.1 Failure to use the required compounds will result in an immediate penalty of 1 minute as automatically incurred by the game.

14.3.2 An additional penalty of up to 1 minute may be incurred to properly penalize based on advantage gained.

 

14.4 Pit Entry/Exit penalties (Pit Window Violation}

14.4.1 Entering pits before or after pit window is allowed, but only to repair damage.

14.4.2 Entering pit lane before the pit window opens, to fuel the car or change the tires, will incur a 1 minute penalty.

14.4.3 Leaving pit lane AFTER the pit window closes, after taking fuel or changing tires, will incur a 1 minute penalty.

14.4.4 If entering pit lane to repair damage, before the pit window is open, but the pit window opens once in your pit box, you must exit the pits and return to the pits to take fuel and/or change tires, or you will incur a 1 minute penalty.

 

14.5 Taking fuel or tires outside of the pit window

14.5.1 Any service for fuel and/or tires outside of the pit window is a 1 minute penalty for each occurrence.

14.5.2 Fueling more than once during the pit window is prohibited, and there will be a 1 minute penalty for the infraction.

15. Rules Of Conduct For Driving

15.1 Unsafe Re-Entry

Drivers recovering from an accident or returning to the track have no right of way until they reach a significant race pace and stay off the racing line (or try to) until then. Entering the track and causing an incident will incur a penalty. Drivers who have lost control of their car, and re-enter the track without control, is not considered an unsafe re-entry.

 

15.2 Blocking/Defending Moves

Drivers are allowed to move once in an effort to defend a corner. Moving again is considered blocking and may be penalized. The forward driver can only make 1 move off the racing line. They may not make any moves in the braking zone.

Pinching/squeezing a driver to the edge of the track is ok, asa long as they leave room for the other driver. Pinching is defined as a slow move to one side of the track and towards the driver, so as to force the other driver into a higher line. Making contact is highly discouraged, but some may happen. Obviously causing any damage or forcing the other car off track is not allowed.

 

15.3 Lapped Cars (BLUE FLAG)

15.3.1 Going a lap down

Lapped (or being lapped) drivers must make reasonable effort to let lapping drivers pass unimpeded, by staying on the racing line and not defending . Applying the brakes with the leaders directly behind you is not acceptable. Move off the racing line and lift, or move over.

Blue flag drivers are allowed to battle for position while under blue flag, if the driver is NOT battling for position, they must make reasonable effort to allow the leaders through safely. The leaders are responsible for making the overtake safely and to be patient. There are too many variables to layout each one, but drivers should make reasonable efforts during these times.

15.3.2 Unlapping

Lapped drivers are allowed to unlap themselves. If a lapped driver has significant pace over the driver in front of them that is on the lead lap, they may overtake them. The lead lap driver is NOT responsible for yielding to a lapped driver.The lapped driver must make a safe overtake under normal race conditions.

 

15.4 Brake-checking

Slowing down needlessly with another car two (2) virtual meters or less behind is prohibited.

 

15.5 Waiting/Self-Penalizing

A driver who recognizes their own responsibility for a racing incident and who slows down to return position to the wronged driver is considered to have partially or fully self-penalized, and this should factor into the stewards' decision on the incident.

 

15.6 Unprofessional Conduct

Drivers may not engage in bullying or pestering behavior toward other drivers who have right of way, such as repeated slight contact, or flashing their headlights.

Drivers who use the in-game chat system in a way that distracts other drivers will be penalized accordingly.

 

15.7 Quitting a race

Drivers that park their cars in the pits, or leave the lobby during the race, will be counted as a DNF and will receive no points, and will be moved to the bottom of the bubble list. Drivers are allowed to park in the pits a maximum of 15 minutes (not during the last 15 minutes, or it is counted as a DNF) to handle emergencies or otherwise. Drivers are encouraged to complete the race, no matter their position on track, or how bad their race is going. Parking in the pits looks bad on broadcast(s) and extends the end of race timer.

16. Red Flags

Organizers and hosts can, according to their own discretion, call red flags or race restarts.

16.1 Red Flags

16.1.1 Red Flags MAY be called by lobby host or broadcaster, for major incidents on lap 1 during the first 2-3 corners (1st sector). Major incident is defined as 3 or more drivers that receive damage or way off the track, all from the same incident.

16.1.2 Red flags may ONLY be called by the broadcaster or lobby host. The lobby host may designate a driver closer to the rear of the field, as a spotter, to help see incident(s) if the lobby host is in the top of the field.

16.1.3 Red flags are called if 1 or more cars are stuck on the grid

16.1.4 Reg flags may be called if 1 or more drivers are DC d on the 1st lap. A DC means their account left the lobby, not just the track. This does not include purposeful disconnects or rage quits.

16.1.5 Only 2 red flags can be called for any one round. After the 2nd is called, the next start goes, regardless of conditions.

16.1.6 Drivers that call a red flag in party chat, are not official. Only the host or broadcaster may call red flags. If drivers exit the race, and an official red flag has not been called, then they will be given a DNF. So to be VERY CLEAR, if a driver is involved in an incident, and says red flag or red or similar in the chat, and exits the track, or a group of drivers call red or Red Flag or similar and leave the track, without the broadcaster or lobby host calling it, may receive a DNF, and may receive a penalty for doing so.

 

16.2 Canceled Rounds

16.2.1 Canceling a round is the discretion of the Race Director only.

16.2.2 A maximum of 30 minutes will be used to get a race going to keep on schedule. If the race cannot start within 30 minutes from the original start time, the round will be canceled.
