    By signing up to BTCC, you agree to accept and observe the Series Rules.
    The current BTCC Stewards are Scaniabebe. Please PM the stewards via GTPlanet or PSN regarding on-track incidents. Do NOT publicity address the issue with the other driver(s) involved. In general, the stewards will only view what is reported to them via PM< although action may also be taken if any non-reported incidents are seen.

    For the decision of the stewards to stand, at least two of the stewards must agree to it, else no action will be taken, or most lenient penalty will be awarded. Stewards are not allowed to judge incidents involving themselves. The reasons for penalties will not be made public - please PM the stewards if you would like an explanation for your penalty/penalties, or to appeal.

    You will be issued a warning if you driving in a certain incident is perceived to be unacceptably 'dirty' - this means you are automatically given 2 Penalty Points. You can receive a maximum of one warning per race, but it is possible to receive multiple warnings in one race meeting!

    You will be banned for One Race Meeting if you earn 8 Penalty Points (4 Warnings) during the Season. Race bans do not count as drop scores. If you earn enough points to be banned due to an incident or incidents at the final round of the season, then your ban carries over to your next BTCC Season/Event.

    You will be banned for the rest of the season if you earn 16 Penalty Points (8 Warnings) during the Season. New drivers may be placed on probation after their first meeting if they earn any penalty points/time penalties in their debut round. If their standard of driving does not improve at their second meeting, they will be permanently banned from the Series.
    Time penalties are not normally associated with a warning, but it's at the stewards' discretion. If you have already received a warning in a single race, you will be issued time penalties for any further rule breaks during that race (of at least 5 seconds each). Other incidents may be worthy of only a time penalty, of variable length. Pitting too early or too late incurs a 10 Second Penalty. Failing to pit at all incurs a 60 Second Penalty.

    It is not possible for us to record and replay instances of drivers being blocked in Qualifying. However, if the stewards receive persistent complaints of blocking from several events, or if any incidents are seen On-Track by a steward, then the driver at fault will be penalised with warnings and/or time penalties.

    Off Track behaviours can also be penalised. Please respect other drivers even when not on the track (on GTP or PSN), as well as on it. Penalties will be issued if a driver's behaviour is considered disrespectful and offensive, or if a driver persistently attempts to stir up trouble in discussion. There are no maximum limit to penalties, and may face to a full season or even permanent ban!

    All decisions are at the stewards' discretion, and may include penalties not listed here. The Series Owner reserves the right to make the final decision on cases where appropriate. All drivers are welcome to appeal any penalties given to them, provided they do so within 24 hours of the race results being published. If your appeal is successful, the Final Results and Points Tables will be adjusted accordingly as soon as possible.

    ----------
    ARRIVE ON TIME! Due to the race format, the schedule is tight. We encourage all drivers to arrive at least 5 minutes before Spec Checks are due to begin for their session. In general, we will not wait for latecomers, and we will start no later than 10 minutes after the schedule regardless of circumstances. The only circumstances in which the start will be delayed further will be in the case of unexpected mass DCs/Black Screens/Game Freezes. If you are well aware of your individual connection problems,then we may not wait for yo, and we may have to ask you to leave the series if your connection seriously affects the field.
    ----------​

    Top 10 "Locked In"
    The Top 10 drivers in the Drivers' Championship (or less to accommodate the stewards) will be automatically guaranteed a starting position for each week's races. All other drivers must compete in Pre-Qualifying in order to fill the remaining 6 Spaces in the Lounge. Extra Qualifying Spaces will become available if Top 10 Drivers do not attend.

    Race Night Procedure

    Race Meetings Take Place on Thursdays from 7PM GMT.

    7:00PM GMT: Pre-Qualifying (10 Minute Session)
    7:15PM GMT: Qualifying for Race 1 (15 Minute Session)
    7:30PM GMT: Race 1 (Grid determined by 15 Minute Qualifying Session)
    7:55PM GMT: Race 2 (Grid will be a Reverse Grid on Race 1 Results)
    8:20PM GMT: Race 3 (Grid will be a Reverse Grid on Race 2 Results)
    8:50PM GMT: Qualifying for MiTO Cup (10 Minute Session)
    9:00PM GMT: Race 1 of MiTO Cup (Grid determined on MiTO Cup Qualifying Session)
    9:20PM GMT: Race 2 of MiTO Cup (Grid will be a Reverse Grid on Race 1 Results)


    Manual grids will be used as a backup procedure for any race in case of problems.

    During The Race
    The BTCC Online Championship follows the GTP OLR Rules for acceptable conduct in racing, and these must be followed at all times!

    Races may be Yellow Flagged in the event of a Major pileup. Which means the leader must slow to 60mph (approx. 100kph) and complete the lap under Yellow Flag Conditions (race resumes to Green Flag at the end of the lap (other than Brands Hatch Indy, which requires another lap to be completed under Yellow Flag). Races will be Red Flagged if there is deemed to be too much lag, or if drivers become stuck on the grid. Attempts will be made to run the races on the scheduled date if at all possible.

    Mandatory Pit Stops and Pit Windows: Make sure your pit entries and exits are fair and safe! Any kind of incident must be avoided. Do not use cars in front as breaks on Pit Entry. Otherwise, entries and exits are free from any restriction.

    2 Wheels on Track at ALL TIMES: "Track" is defined as being between the white lines. If the "Racing Line" requires you to cross a White Line (eg. Last Sector at Trial Mountain) then it's acceptable to do so. Two wheels are allowed on kerbs.

    Bump Drafting is legal, as long as you do not risk a crash. Avoid when near a braking zone.

    Using horns are not against the rules, but it is not recommended. Don't irritate people with them. If horn use is a factor in causing a crash, it will be taken into account and could increase the penalty.

    You are not allowed to purposely retire/rage-quit from Race 1 or 2. If you need to retire, park in a safe place.

    Unnecessary Chat during the race is not acceptable, and will result in penalisation.

    Quick note: if Pre-Qualifying is a possibility, then how comes only 16 spaces are free to sign up with?

    Otherwise, I'm glad to see things look good going forwards :)

    Began some testing... Top 2 cars are within .050 of each other around Brands Hatch, with the car in 3rd being 0.369 off the pace. The other two cars, don't ask :p

    Is it safe to assume that the other 2 cars are as far off the pace as I would be?

    Well, I've got one of them's lap down to 47.641, so now it's just one more car to work some magic on!
    I want to just get the Specs rough for now so then I have a good base to work from...

    1st: 2008 Honda Civic Type R (0:47.012)
    2nd: 2006 Nissan Skyline Sedan 350GT Type SP (0:47.041)
    3rd: 2013 Ford Focus ST (0:47.342)
    4th: 2011 Renault Megane RS Trophy (0:47.410)
