    2015 Lotus 97T Championship
    [​IMG]

    This series will be taking place on Sundays.
    Practice room will open at 17:30 BST / 12:30 EDT
    Qualifying - 18:10 BST / 13:10 EDT
    Race - 19:00 BST / 14:00 EDT

    Races will be 1 hour long with a 15 minute Q session.
    All aids will be OFF.

    This is a difficult car to drive and even harder to save tires. So here is a setup I devised last year for competition:
    image.jpg
    This was setup using 850 HP so I would recommend higher rear wing values. Anywhere from 1750 to 1900, depending on the track.

    If a driver posts IN and misses Qualifying he/she can still race, starting at the back

    Our series tries to be more like a racing club than just a series of races.

    We also require our drivers to ensure they answer any posts on this forum and psn messages that they are sent quickly.

    Drivers who are late for this will start from the back of the grid with no Q time posted.

    The Qualifying will start at 18:10 BST / 13:10 EDT

    The Race Start time will start at 19:00 BST / 14:00 EDT

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3 Penalty Points & Race Rules


    The stewards spend many hours planning to make this series run as fair and smoothly as we can, for this we need your cooperation.

    Race incidents must be reported on the forum within 24 hours of the race finishing.
    These will be reviewed by only those stewards who are not in anyway involved.


    To post race incidents to be reviewed as follows.....
    without any other comments in post:
    Incident between driver name and driver name
    Lap no ?
    Turn ? or Sector ?
    You will be posted back being reviewed with an incident number.


    Incidents will be reviewed by the stewards and any penalties will be posted by
    Tuesday night along with the updated Championship table.


    Outside Track limits

    Track limits are defined by the white lines on the outside of the track. 2 wheels must stay on the inside of these lines at all times. Repeated offences of this rule WILL result in a penalty.

    There may be exceptions at some tracks in some corners. These exceptions will be posted before the race with the turn number. Note that these exceptions may be rare.


    Pit Entry & Exit lines must also be adhered to at all times wherever possible.

    DROPPED SCORES

    Drivers reporting a they won't race can use a dropped scores, there will 2 available to each driver.

    Dropped scores will be deducted only after the season ends before the final standing are announced.

    Driving standards and points penalties
    We want this to be a Non contact series, as with heavy damage, even a little nudge can lead to a huge loss of time for any abuse of this rule.

    Driving penalties handed to drivers in this series will be harsh.

    Penalties will be decided by the stewards and may range from a warning to a 1 race ban, depending on the severity and any past incidents from drivers.


    Overtaking

    It will be the responsibility of the overtaking driver to ensure there is no contact between cars at any time.
    If a driver forces another car off the track by attempting an overtake and then leaves no room for the car being overtaken to continue will be penalized.
    If a driver being overtaken clearly moves to block and causes contact there will be heavy penalty points.
    drivers must ensure that they do all they can to avoid contact.
    All defending drivers may make ONE move to defend. Any weaving or blocking will be looked at by the stewards.

    All avoidable accidents will be reviewed and will be penalized at the stewards discretion.

    Pit lane Entry
    Make it quite clear by your position on track when you intend to enter the pits.
    Hindering other cars at racing speed will be penalized harshly.


    Pit lane Exit

    If a car on track is at race speed as you exit the pit lane it is imperative you keep your car inside the white pit lane exit line - Hindering other cars at racing speed will be penalized harshly.

    Room Etiquette
    All drivers are expected to be friendly with each other. Any insulting or belligerent language/behavior will be harshly dealt with.
    No typing in the chat box while qualifying or racing is going on.

    Retiring from a race
    Any driver who retires or quits for any reason
    must pull in to the pits to leave. Do Not pull off track and stay off track. Doing so will result in a warning. A second time will result in a penalty.

    11 Amendments, Ideas, and Adjustments

    (Any changes made to the series will be posted here)

    1. Qualifying has been moved forward by 10 minutes to ensure that the race can start on time.

    2. Teams will be split. After race 4. The teams will be made based on results. 1st with last. 2nd with the penultimate from last ect.

    3. Q will start a further 10 minutes back, to ensure that we can get connection issues worked out and to give time for a 5 lap test race, that will give people a chance to learn the dynamics of the start beforehand.

    If people are interested, I'll be holding a few half length races at a few tracks on sunday around 19:00 BST. I'd like if you guys, especially the newer guys, to join if you have time so that we can all get acquainted to each others driving style and to just get a bit of practice with pits, tire saving, ect.
