Safety car periods will be controlled by the race director to ensure a safe and fair restart to an event with as minimal delay as possible.
9.2. Safety car periods can be utilized following accidents that involve more than three cars, accidents that result in two cars receiving engine damage, or mass disconnections.
9.2.1. Safety car periods utilized for accidents involving four or more cars do not require a specific amount of damage received by any of the competitors.
9.2.1.1. All involved cars could theoretically not receive mechanical damage at all. The requirement for a safety car to be deployed under these circumstances is having four or more cars come to a sudden or unsafe rest on or directly near the racing surface.

9.2.3.1. Safety car periods utilized for mass disconnection events will lead to a red flag period to regather the field and allow the disconnected drivers the ability to return to the event.
9.3. In the event that a safety car period is issued, the race director will type "SCD" for Safety Car Deployment. The entire track then becomes under yellow flag conditions, meaning overtaking is not permitted unless the cars being overtaken are off of the racing surface or hindered by mechanical damage. The field will continue at a reasonable pace until the overall race leader has passed the entrance of pit lane.
9.3.1. The overall race leader will hold a speed of 62 miles per hour/100 kilometers per hour once passed pit lane entrance when safe to do so, and all drivers are expected to leave two to three car lengths between each other while a part of the safety car queue.
9.3.2. If applicable, once the entire field has entered the safety car queue, GT Class cars behind the P Class leader, but ahead of the GT Class leader, will be directed to pass the safety car queue and the safety car to the right hand side and catch back up at the rear of the safety car queue.
9.3.3. Once the GT Class cars have been waved by, all of the P Class cars caught behind GT Class cars may also pass to the right hand side, but they will instead line up behind the P Class leader without swapping order.
9.3.4. Once the field is ordered with P Class cars in front of the queue, and GT Class cars following, the safety car will indicate the race returning to green flag conditions and pull away, with the P Class leader holding the safety car speed. Racing conditions will return once the P Class leader reaches the beginning of the pit lane wall.
9.4. The pit lane will remain open at all times of the race, with exception to red flag periods, in which the pit lane will close. Drivers are expected to pit prior to catching the safety car queue, and drivers that pit after catching the queue will start behind all of the GT Class cars on the race restart.
9.5. In the event of a mass disconnection, the normal safety car procedure will be applied until the field has been sorted correctly. Instead of returning to racing conditions, the field will be stopped by the safety car in the final sector before reaching the entrance to pit lane. The race director will record the leaderboard, as well as obtain the laps completed by the class leaders before all cars vacate the track to allow the disconnected drivers back into the race.
9.5.1. Drivers involved in a mass disconnection event will be scored based on their last completed lap, and will restart the race at the rear of the field, regardless of class.

I can't type much, as always I haven't understood much as English isn't my mothertongue. Can you explain me better how teams work? Will races finish before 3:30 p.m EST? If not I will probably miss 2-3 races.

There's no restrictions to GTE participation. Welcome to join us.

Races will normally be completed by 5:30, not 3:30.

Also should make a note that the Event Procedure is incorrect and will be adjusted in the rulebook tonight. Actual process will look like the following:
P1 Qualifying: 2:00-2:15
GTE Qualifying: 2:20-2:35
Warm Up: 2:40-3:00
Race: 3:20-5:20

OP has been updated to include the following changes:
-2020 Season Roster has been updated to include all of the official GTE entries, which now stand at 16. Additional GTE entries will be placed in a reserve for instances where there is space for inclusion for the class qualifying session.
-License requirements for drivers in GTE and P1 Classes have been revised.
-Section 6 (Event Procedure) has been reorganized to accurately reflect the time frame the championship will be using.
-Addition of minor livery requirements for GTE Class, including a rear bumper decal.

Additionally, I am looking for someone capable of broadcasting the entire season via either YouTube or Twitch. Please inquire privately if interested.

I don't see it being likely of an occurrence, but Article 5.5 was intriguing.

"5.5. Drivers that have been lapped cannot fight to regain that lap unless they are engaged in a battle for direct position on track."

In the event that a lapped car has the advantage on pace, what would be the stipulation there?

Only reason I ask is if that car ends up having the pace to make it into a considerably better position than being +1 lap behind the leader. Or, we have a situation where a top-running car has been penalised with being 1 lap down on the field prior to the race.

It'll impact their race heavily if they are just trying to get through on pace merit and the letter of the law is adhered to as opposed to the spirit of it. At that point they are just sitting behind the leader until they happen across another competitor in direct position.

There will likely be exemptions posted as a sub-regulation regarding that. It's a good question with a not so easy answer.
