Alternates should remain on PSN and ready to join lobby if informed by the series director that they can join the main event. This will be managed at the discretion of the Series Director. Please don't wait until the last minute to try and get in the lobby Main Event Drivers not in the lobby by 9:30pm run the risk of missing the first race. The qualifying/race will not be restarted once the qualification/race has started. 8:00pm – 8:10pm – KOQ Lobby is open (If needed) 8:10pm – 9:00pm – Knock-Out Qualifying (Practice Mode 1) Refer to Knock-Out Qualification Process below 9:00pm - 9:30pm – Open Practice (Practice Mode 2) All Main Event drivers enter lobby and prepare for Main Event Qualification 9:30pm – 9:45pm - Race 1 Qualifying (10 Min Qualification Mode) 9:45pm – 11:15pm – Main event (90 - 100 min race) Knock-Out Qualifying If KOQ is required, Zii1993 will count the locked in Main Event drivers (per the above procedure) and announce how many grid spots are available for the Main Events both in the GTPlanet thread and in the Lobby. 8:10pm – 9:00pm – Knock-Out Qualifying (Practice Mode) 8:00pm - Official Practice Lobby opens for drivers outside the top 3 in points in each class and any current top 3 driver who did not confirm participation per the above procedure. Entry into the Knock-Out Qualifying lobby is reserved to the first 15 Active Drivers that enter the lobby. Retired drivers may enter provided there are less than 14 Active Drivers in the lobby. You must not leave the lobby as your lap times may be erased. Drivers participating in the Knock-Out Qualifying may join at any time during this 50 min window. No requirement to run the full 50 mins however you do need to give yourself enough time to get on the track and log a lap time. Can run as many or as few of laps as needed. Remaining grid positions for the Main Events to be determined by fastest practice times during the Knock-Out Qualifying Lobby up until 8:40pm. A photo of Best Times will be taken by Zii at 8:40pm to lock in the best times. Zii will announce who has made it through Knock-Out Qualifying and qualified for the Main Events. In the event we have more spots available than participants at the conclusion of the Knock-Out Qualifying, then everyone will advance to the Main Events! Knock-Out Qualifying lobby crashes - In the event of the lobby crashing in the final 15 mins of Knock-Out Qualifying, grid positions will be awarded based on first come first serve into the original Knock-Out Qualifying lobby. If lobby crashes within first 25 mins, a new lobby will be set up and drivers will need to post new times in an abbreviated session. Main Event locked in drivers should not enter lobby during this time. If the KOQ lobby is full prior to 8:35pm and an Active Driver is trying to get in (that person MUST send me a msg via PSN that they cant get in PRIOR to 8:35pm), I will look at the current lap times (no earlier than 8:30pm) and the driver(s) with the fastest time(s) will then be locked into the Main Event races and asked to exit the KOQ lobby so that the waiting driver(s) can enter. The above process will only be allowed for a max of 2 drivers trying to get into a full KOQ lobby prior to 8:35pm. Anyone trying to get into a full KOQ lobby after 8:35pm will be considered too late for that week's race. Drivers knocked out during the Knock-Out Qualifying will need to leave the lobby. Sorry. Race Format We will run 2 classes for 4 week seasons. 90 minute races each week. Grid position for each weeks race determined by 15 minute qualifying session prior to the start of race. If you get disconnected or decide to quit during a race you will get a DNF and finish last. If more than one person quits or gets disconnected during a race, your finishing position will be determined by the number of laps completed. Tuning regulations This is a full tuning allowed series.

If you're not sure what good racecraft is, watch this video. It can be summed up in one simple 'Golden Rule' of motorsports: It is the responsibility of the overtaking driver, meaning the car that is attempting to execute the pass, to make sure that the pass is made cleanly and incident free. If you don't agree with this rule or don't think it applies to you, this is not the series for you. Drivers coming off and on pit road always stay on the correct side of the pit road line (DO NOT cross the solid line). Part time drivers will be allowed to re-apply to Active driver status at the start of the following season based on case by case request. All drivers will refrain from doing donuts, burnouts, drifting, driving backwards/reverse or any other activity that would be a distraction to other drivers on the track during all Official d Sanctioned Events (practice sessions, KOQ, Main Events, etc..) Additionally, if you are going to park along the track edge to "watch" please make sure you are as far away from the racing surface as possible so as to no cause a distraction to other drivers. In the event of an incident with other drivers during the race, do not discuss it via chat during the race. Repeat offences of this policy will result in being suspended for a minimum of 1 week. Drivers are to continue to race and put their best effort the entire race night. Due to the unique nature of the series, this is to ensure that drivers are not left out that would have otherwise raced if given the chance Of course real life situations occur from time to time as well as the random DC. This is not meant to penalize the occasional situation. Continued repeat violation of this regulation will be managed at the discretion of the Series Director. Racing Incident Report If you ever feel like a driver is not following the rules, please wait until league night is over, and then file a Racing Incident Report using the below process Review the replay from the race to get a fresh perspective on the incident. If you still wish to submit the incident Send the Chief Steward (@zii1993) and the other driver(s) involved a PM here at GTPlanet (by 11:00pm Eastern Wednesday) respectfully detailing the incident. Be sure to include the race, lap and time stamp of the incident. Should the offending driver agree with the account and does not wish to dispute it (reply with this agreement in the PM), the penalty (if applicable) will be reduced in half.
