    POINT SYSTEM
    Points system explained

    Upon completing 75% of total race distance, if a driver disconnects he is entitled to the full amount of points for the last available racing position in that race plus any bonus points he received prior to disconnecting (if 16 players players are in the room, he will receive points for 16th postition.

    Only 9 out of the 10 race results will count. At the end of the season, your lowest points scores will be dropped (If you miss two races, then nothing can be dropped).
    #1 Qualifier = 5 points

    Race Points
    1st = 35
    2nd = 30
    3rd = 25

    4th = 21
    5th = 19
    6th = 17
    7th = 15
    8th = 13
    9th = 11
    10th = 9

    11th = 6
    12th = 5

    RACE RULES.

    First of all, every member who signs up for this championship should have read and fully understand the race rules.We expect racers to be sensible both on and off the track, as well as being clean on the track. You must be able to distinguish between a gap that exists, and a gap that doesn’t exist.

    I shouldn't have to explain the simples rules of overtaking, so I wont. It is all covered below.
    But I’ll provide a ‘brief’ overview of what we expect to see on track.

    1. Overtaking
    Just because you’re quicker, doesn't mean you’re going to pass the car in front at the next corner, he has a right to defend as much as you do to attack. Always remember that the race isn’t won on the first lap. Wait for an opportunity to present itself and take the overtake. If a driver out breaks himself into a corner, you are free to attempt that over take, likewise when generally overtaking, if your car is at least next to the drivers window of the car you are attempting to overtake, you are free to continue on that line.

    If you’re going to ride some one's bumper, make sure you know the effect of slip streaming and how that funnels into early braking for corners, infact this is a general rules everyone should know about, but sadly some people ‘forget’. When following another car in a slipstream (For example, going into Turn 1 at Fuji) you will need to do one of two things; (A) Break early to avoid a collision. (B) You are close enough to attempt an overtake and will move to the inside line.

    2. Defending
    You’re defending your position, so chances are the guy behind you is quicker than you right now. But that’s no problem, because you have the advantage of choosing your line through every corner. But that doesn’t mean you can go wide into a corner and then slam the door shut by swerving back in 3 inches in-front of the car behind you. Make sure you know where the guy behind you is, if you know he’s going for an overtake then remember to leave room for him either on the outside or inside of the corner.

    When the car behind you is in your slipstream, it is considered incredibly rude and unsportsmanlike to swerve all over the track to break the slipstream. This follows the ‘One Move Rule’ where you can make one legitimate move whilst defending a line (This may be moving from the outside, to the inside of a corner forcing your competitor to take a slower line). Equally, learn how to out-smart your opponent. If he has your slipstream into a slow corner (Turn 1 at Fuji for example) try to brake early, or at your usual braking point instead of braking late to compensate for his slipstream. He’s going to brake early anyway, and if he doesn’t then he’ll go wide and you’ll have had the quicker line through the corner.

    3. Cutting Corners
    This one is quite simple. At least two wheels must remain in contact with the track at all times possible. Curbs are counted as part of the track. That green asphalt you see just behind the curb? That’s not part of the track. Those handy white lines they paint at the edge of the tracks are what defines the track edges.

    4. Racing in a pack
    This is where most people usually screw up, and mostly why we’re using heavy damage. When racing in a group of three cars or more, it is imperative that you remember to brake early for corners or move off-line to avoid contact with the car in front of you. Failure to do so could result in a penalty for dangerous driving.

    When racing in a pack where all competitors are producing, what would appear to be similar pace, there is no need to try and jump through every gap on every corner. Sit back, let the battle wear out whilst you preserve your tyres a bit and analyse where each opponent is weakest so that you can capitalise on those weaknesses when you attempt to move forward. That doesn’t mean to say you can’t overtake of course! This is simply to stop people causing accidents by not being sensible.

    5. Race Starts
    We use the grid start with false start check because it makes for exciting race starts. The most important thing to remember about a race start, is that you have 16 other people around you, you need to make sure you don’t ruin their races on the first lap. As much as they need to make sure they don’t ruin yours.

    6. Lapping
    When being lapped, it is mandatory that you let the lapping car past you. There’s no need to pull over and slam the brakes, if you’re fighting for position then it’s a lot harder to let a lapping car through and we understand that. But if a lapping car is right behind you, go wide at the next corner, or just move off line to allow them past. Equally, when lapping a car in front of you, make sure to give them some room, don’t pressure them into a mistake or barge your way through.

    7. Qualifying
    Qualifying for each race will take place on the night of the race, and will last 20 minutes.
    The room will be open for one hour before the scheduled race start time. If a driver does not arrive 10-minutes before the race starts, it will be assumed that he is not coming unless someone has informed a steward otherwise.

    8. Your Internet
    Since we race in a private lobby you can't join with a NAT3 network. You need NAT2 or NAT1.

    Penalties will be handed out when the situation calls for it. If you see an incident you wish to be looked over, send a PM on
    to a steward and they will review the replay (please include what lap it happened on and who the victim/accused was). Penalties can be handed out for a number of offences, ranging from dangerous driving to holding up a car trying to lap you.
    Race Disqualification: This will occur for gross misconduct. I.e. not pitting, etc.
    10 -25 second penalty: Dangerous driving, causing multiple incidents, etc.
    50 second penalty: Absurd dangerous driving, causing totally avoidable incidents, etc.

    Race Chat: Chatting during a race is forbidden in the championship due to it causing too much of a distraction. If you've arrived late and missed Race 1 - please do not start trying to chat with other users of the lounge. Chatting during races will result in point deductions and disqualification.

    Sign me up please. Time to test :)

    I have a question, the room specs are for heavy damage but the text in the following paragraph from the Race Rules contradicts this. Is this just a typo?

    4. Racing in a pack
    This is where most people usually screw up, and mostly why we’re using light damage............

    BTW guys you will need to sign up to formula-digital.com as the league stats will be calculated there. This will allow us to produce race results in a few seconds, it will also record all your results, send you an email reminder before the race among other things.

    BUT.. It is all still in beta, some of it barely alpha so expect bugs :p Just report them to be and I'll fix them.

    For a little guide:
    www.formula-digital.com Sign up on any page at the top right of the screen, then login.
    Go to the 'Garage' page, then leagues. Then you will see that currently you are not in any league.
    From here click on the 'Join a league' menu option to see a list of leagues.
    Find this league and click to join, then join the GT500 championship.

    I am going to be putting leagues on the front page of the site when I get time, so aside from the advantages on the admin side of things, using this site should give more exposure to this league as the front page of the site gets about 800 unique visitors each day.

    Also, is anyone interested in competing as a team?

    Hey Greasy,

    Welcome aboard!

    Once we get confirmation of full time drivers we will hold a pre race meeting to test the stability of our connections.

    Is any one connected to the NBN fibre network ?

    But on p2p games those stats are at the mercy of our rubbish connections. We'll drag your NBN down to our TPG congestion levels :p
    HSV... Hmm slow car at these specs. I think we should limit PP. Cars like the GTR can really ramp up the power then use the limiter to reach the BHP goal. This give a large torque advantage and can gain 10-15PP while still at the same weight and BHP. And there is also areo, no PP limit means aero is free.

    But anyway if you want to add a teams championship as well as drivers that would be cool, I'll code that in. But maybe we should wait to see driver numbers first.

    The MOTUL AUTECH GT-R '08 carries 30 kg extra over all the other cars and it is noticeable. Is it possible to make the minimum weight for the series 1130 kg? That will place all the cars on the same weight.

    Edit:

    Done with testing, please put me down for the HONDA WEIDER HSV-010 '11. :cheers:

    Thanks.

    1. :gtpflag::gtpflag:Hey Lads,

    1. We are going to hold our first pre season race meeting next Monday night 21/04/14 @ 8pm EST. So we can test our room and individual connection stability, as well as a short fun greet & meet race at the Nurbugring GP/F Circuit .Can we all make sure that we have tested and selected our preferred race car for the opening season as you will not be able to change your selection once the season starts.

    Once you have selected your weapon of choice for the season, please post your selection on this thread along with your racing number if you have selected a Base Model Race Car.

    If any one has any questions or needs assistance with tuning, I or any of our fellow racers would be more than happy to assist.:cheers:

    Cheers Vendal
