    Race Rules & Regulations:

    Driving Aids: Prohibited except for Driving Line and ABS.
    Tyre/Fuel Consumption - Very Fast
    Damage - Light
    Slipstream - Weak
    Penalties - Off
    Boost - Off
    Grip - Real
    Race Finish Delay - 120 seconds (you will not be classified if you do not finish within 2 minutes of the race winner)
    Number of Pitstops - 1 (pit windows provided in advance)

    Three approx. 20-minute races per week. 9 rounds over 9 weeks. Drivers', Teams' and Independents' Championships.

    DROP SCORE SYSTEM - each driver's worst two scores of the season will be dropped, meaning 7 scores out of 9 will count for the Drivers' Championship. This allows drivers to miss a round without disadvantaging themselves. Drivers must be registered for the championship for at least 8 rounds in order to qualify for at least one drop score.

    Independents' Championship: each driver's worst two scores will be dropped. Drivers must be registered for at least 8 rounds in order to qualify for at least one drop score. Only race results count for points (i.e. no poles, laps led or Fastest Lap points).
    Teams' Championship: each team's worst two scores will be dropped. Teams must be registered for at least 8 rounds in order to qualify for at least one drop score.
    Manufacturers' Championship: No championship in this series.

    Grid/Qualifying Procedure:

    Arrive on time! Due to the 3-race format, the schedule is tight. In general, the organisers are not obligated to wait for latecomers. The only instances in which we will wait to start (and we will aim to start no later than 7.10pm) will be in the case of unexpected mass DCs/black screens/game freezes. If you are well aware of your connection problems, then we may not wait for you!

    - Race 1 (7pm approx.) - grid will be determined by a 10-minute Qualifier, set to 'Race Together' to ensure fair play. The Qualifier will begin at 7.05pm approx (after spec checks) regardless, but latecomers should have the time to qualify. (If not, then they miss Race 1). This session will be considered a 'race' session, and therefore any DCs which cannot be recovered in time will be treated as a non-start/DNF.

    - Race 2 (7.35pm approx.) - grid will be set to reversed based on Race 1 results. DCs in Race 1 will be treated as a DNF and therefore you will start Race 2 from the front of the grid. Anyone who purposely retires from Race 1, whether or not in an attempt to start Race 2 up front, will be forced to start at the back, and will be further penalised after the race. The grid will then be completed manually.

    - Race 3 (8pm approx.) - grid will be set to based on Race 2 results. DCs in Race 2 will be treated as a DNF and therefore you will start Race 3 from the back of the grid.

    Manual grid setups using chat will be used as a backup procedure in case of any problems.


    Notice: Please do not obstruct other drivers during Race 1 qualifying! If you're not on a fast lap, either get off the track or drive way off the racing line and slow down/stop if you see a driver coming. Please stop in a sensible place!

    During the Race:

    This series follows the GTP OLR Rules for acceptable conduct in racing, and these must be followed at all times!

    Mandatory pit-stops and pit windows. Make sure your pit entries and exits are fair and safe! Any kind of incident must be avoided. Otherwise, entries and exits are free from any restriction.

    2 wheels on track at all times. No exceptions! 'Track' is defined as being between the white lines. Two wheels are allowed on kerbs.

    Bumpdrafting is legal, so long as you do not risk a crash. Avoid when nearing a braking zone.

    You are not allowed to purposely retire from Race 1.

    Unnecessary in-race chat is not acceptable, and will be penalised!



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


    Penalty System & Stewards:


    By signing up to the series you agree to accept and observe the series rules.


    Stewards are rolo912011, skengdigi, qrtintheshade and Street-King-07. Please PM the stewards via GTPlanet or PSN regarding on-track incidents. Do NOT publicly 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 any stewards' decision to stand, at least 2 of the stewards must agree to it, else no action will be taken, or the most lenient penalty available will be applied. The reasons for penalties will not be made public - please PM the stewards if you want an explanation for your penalty/penalties.

    You will be issued a warning if your driving in a certain incident is perceived to be unacceptably 'dirty' - this means you are automatically given 2 penalty points. It is possible to receive multiple warnings in one race night!

    You will be banned for one race meeting if you earn 8 penalty points during the season (i.e. 4 warnings). 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 event/season.

    You will be banned for the rest of the season if you earn 16 penalty points during the season. (i.e. 8 warnings). New drivers may be placed on probation after their first meeting if they earn enough penalty points/time penalties in their debut round. If their standard of driving is continued at their second meeting, then they will be removed from the series.

    Time penalties are not normally associated with a warning, but it is 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 means a 60-second penalty.

    It is not possible for us to record and re-play instances of drivers being blocked in Qualifiers. 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 off the track (on GTP or PSN), as well as on it. Penalties will be issued if a drivers' behaviour is considered disrespectful or offensive, or if a driver persistently attempts to stir up trouble in discussion. There are no maximum limits to the penalties, and you may face a season-long or even permanent ban!We're all here to have fun and ultimately, we're all playing a video game. Let's all have good-spirited racing. :) :tup:

    Penalty decisions can be explained via sending a PM to rolo912011, and will not be discussed publicly. 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, any changes to your penalty points total, or the points standings, will be included in the tables published after the next round of the series.

    If you cannot get enough stewards I can do it. If any off the BTCC regulars want to do it they should be in front of me (that will go for the races as well :dopey: )

    Sure. We still keeping the PAR connection or we going it alone? I propose running a yellow colour this time to properly differentiate ourselves from the torrent of blue.
