    There are only 3 main criteria that need be fulfilled in order to enter the championship:

    1. All entrants must be registered members of GTPlanet.net

    2. All entrants must be committed to clean and fair racing, and adhere to the rules and guidelines laid out in both the AUP and OLR.

    3. All entrants must be confident that they will be able to attend the vast majority of races on the 19 race calender. Should you not be able to, you should consider opting out so as to not occupy a slot that somebody else would like.

    The organiser should be contacted with anything related to the Championship. You're also obligated to inform the organiser in advance if you can't make it to a race. Failure to do so might result in exclusion from the championship.

    Reserve Driver Information

    The 'reserve' drivers will be on-call for whenever a 'race' driver cannot make it to a race. Each reserve driver belongs to a specific team, and can only stand in for their team mates. Their points will contribute towards both their team and also themselves in the drivers' championship.

    It is the responsibility of the teams to sort out internally whenever a race driver cannot make it to an event. Therefore it is encouraged that team mates become acquainted with one another and are in frequent contact to ensure that their reserve driver is informed whenever a race driver cannot attend a race. In the event of a race driver having to pull out of the series for good, that team's reserve driver will be offered the race seat to replace him.

    Calendar​

    Championship Specific Rules, Regulations and Guidelines

    This championship will use the current F1 points system:

    Win. 25 pts
    2nd. 18 pts
    3rd. 15 pts
    4th. 12 pts
    5th. 10 pts
    6th. 8 pts
    7th. 6 pts
    8th. 4 pts
    9th. 2 pts
    10th. 1 pt

    Lobby Rules

    The scheduled time for the event is when it is expected that each participant is in the lobby by and ready to begin the race. Invites will be sent out approximately 5 minutes before this time. Depending on circumstances, 5-10 minutes grace will be given should any participant be delayed that has forewarned us of this.

    If the session has got under way on time but a late comer wishes to join, provided we are no more than 5 minutes into the qualifying session, the game will be restarted so that they may enter.

    Along with the race invites, invites to a dedicated chat room will also be sent. Each member is expected to join this. People who have microphones/headsets are encouraged to use them, although once the race is under way, they should be set to mute while not speaking.


    [​IMG]


    Each entrant is expected to behave competently in qualifying. Great care must be taken by those on their out-lap or in-laps, so that they do not impede anyone on a flying lap. If a car on a hot-lap is close behind you, you are expected to move clearly off the racing line for them, and even off track if necessary.

    Holding station at the final corner of the out-lap so as to create space ahead of you is permitted, so long as it does not disrupt anyone's lap behind you. You must not overtake a car which is doing this unless you yourself are on a flying lap. Otherwise, you should wait your turn.

    Anyone who destroys their car during qualifying, purposefully or accidentally, will automatically receive a 10 second time penalty added on to their race time. This is to avoid the tactic of purposefully binning your car so as to start the race on a fresh set of tyres. The one exception to this rule is if the driver has not registered a qualifying time when this happens.

    In the event of the lobby crashing on race start, the host will recreate a new lobby, set it to race only and grid order to random. Because of obvious time constraints, qualifying will not be repeated but the points allocation from the original qualifying session will still stand.


    [​IMG]


    F1 is a non-contact sport. While it is impossible to go a whole season avoiding contact with anyone, the greatest effort should be made to race cleanly and above all, fairly. If this isn't at the forefront of your mind, you do not belong in this championship.

    In the event of accidentally crashing into/spinning a competitor, you are expected to wait for them to re-pass. Failure to do so will result in a warning and repeated warnings can result in exclusion.

    On occasion, it is not always the fault of the car behind for a crash. Weaving by the leading car is strictly prohibited and once they have committed to a line they are expected to stay there for the braking zone.

    Drivers being lapped are expected to slow down and not deviate from their current line so as to avoid confusion. The car coming through is expected to 'overtake' the lapped car. This is the opposite procedure of letting people through who are on flying laps in qualifying by going off the racing line. Please do not confuse the two.

    Unfortunately, with rules set to reduced, this means the blue flag won't be in effect. This means it's important for drivers further down the field to be wary of who they're racing and who they're not. The use of microphones in this situation is advised if possible.

    Guidelines, Hints & Tips

    In order to ensure clean racing, it is recommended that drivers have at least the mini-map, proximity arrows and driver tags all switched on.

    Participants are expected to contribute to this thread in some shape or form. You are very much encouraged to write up your own race reports, or even better, video your race.

    Above all though, the most important thing is that everyone enjoys the championship. Although I expect it to be highly competitive, it should primarily be about having fun.

    Good Luck!

    So do I sorry. :)

    I'm not sure how many races Tom can make, so I'd rather keep him in for the time being, as you might understand.

    Hey guys,

    I'm the vice world champion of the last year and no invitation? What the hell?
    No worries. I know the slots are rare. ;-) Met Shaggy Alonso today, the world champion of the last year. the engines begin to roan again.
    Perhaps I can have a wildcard?

    visit my blog under f12011-setups.blogspot.com


    Keep racing

    I guess Tom set this up using the list of people who had signed up last fall. Either way: all seats have been taken, so it's difficult. I could offer you the reserve spot at McLaren, since Tom is probably not going to make it to every race and it could be that I have to sit out a few times, too. How about that?

    Shaggy, I don't know - usually someone isn't showing up either, so there might be a free slot after the first race.

    I'm sure darkpsi could have the McLaren seat, Matty made it pretty clear he wanted to join on a reserve basis because he didn't want to miss Top Gear. And anyway a full turnout is a very rare occurrence with online racing.

    Hey Dark, you can have my McLaren seat. I'll only be turning up to a few events so go ahead. I'll drive the Sauber or something for when I do turn up.

    Oh :censored:

    Something is stopping me from racing Sunday nights for the foreseeable future so I'm going to have to pull out. I'm gutted, but one good thing is that one of the more experienced guys can take my spot. Good luck gents, I hope to race with you sometime in the future :tup:

    Not true!!! Try Monaco, with AI. It's happened (I can't tell you how it happened as I didn't see what brought the safety car out).

    Okay then, it's very hard at Melbourne when your trying to do it.

    But then again any crash at Monaco is a safety car. Well almost any crash.

    Agreed, I got DQ'd before a safety car came out.
