    OFFICIAL RULES AND REGULATIONS​



    ARTICLE 1 ON TRACK PROTOCOL

    1.1 PASSING
    It is the responsibility of both the overtaking Driver and the Driver being overtaken to assure safe overtaking at racing speeds. A car traveling alone may use the full width of the track. Overtaking may be either right or left depending on the conditions of the moment.

    1.2 BLOCKING
    Any driver who, in the sole opinion of the Race Director and/or Stewards, alters their racing line based on the actions of pursuing competitors, or uses an abnormal racing line to inhibit or prevent overtaking may be considered to be “blocking” and may be warned or penalized pursuant to Article 3. In accordance with Article 4 any action or decision (or any alleged inaction or non-decision) taken by or imposed by the Race Director and/or Stewards in this regard is not subject to appeal.

    1.3 AVOIDABLE CONTACT
    Any driver who, in the sole opinion of the Race Director and/or Stewards, initiates avoidable contact with another competitor, whether or not such contact interrupts the other competitor’s lap times, track position or damages other competitor’s cars, and whether or not such actions result in actual contact, may be warned or penalized pursuant to Article 3. In accordance with Article 4 any action or decision (or any alleged inaction or non-decision) taken by or imposed by the Race Director and/or Stewards in this regard is not subject to appeal.

    1.4 UNJUSTIFIABLE RISK

In accordance with Article 4 any action or decision (or any alleged inaction or non-decision) taken by or imposed by the Race Director and/or Stewards in this regard is not subject to appeal.

    1.5 PIT EXIT
    Drivers exiting pit lane will yield to faster on-track traffic in the event the entering vehicle is unable to accelerate to traffic speed prior to convergence with traffic. Any individual not adhering to pit regulation may be warned or penalized pursuant to Article 3. In accordance with Article 4 any action or decision (or any alleged inaction or non-decision) taken by or imposed by the Race Director and/or Stewards in this regard is not subject to appeal.

    1.6 YIELDING POSITION
    Any driver causing consequential collision, contact, loss of lap time, damage, and/or loss of position will yield position to the offended driver. Any driver returning to the track from off-track areas for any reason will yield to traffic. Any individual not adhering to position yielding regulations may be warned or penalized pursuant to Article 3. In accordance with Article 4 any action or decision (or any alleged inaction or non-decision) taken by or imposed by the Race Director and/or Stewards in this regard is not subject to appeal.


    1.7 WINNER
    1.7.1 The Driver or Drivers of the car which completes the distance of the competition first or the greatest distance in the time set for the competition will be declared the winner(s).

    1.7.2 In competitions of a given distance, the checkered flag will be given first to the leading car, then to the other finishers as they cross the finish line.

    1.7.3 In competitions of a timed length, the checkered flag will be given first to the leading car as it crosses the finish line at or after the expiration of the specified duration, then to the other finishers as they cross the finish line.

    1.7.4 If the leading car is not running at the expiration of the time limit, the checkered flag will be given to the next highest running car in the same manner.

    Decisions will be made by Race Stewards and/or officials (Forza Planet Motorsports officers). In the case that an incident was witnessed by an official that official reserves the right to issue penalty without conferring with other officials. In the case that the incident was not witnessed officials will review evidence via replay.

    4.2 RIGHT TO APPEAL
    A member shall have the right to appeal any decision or penalty issued under authority against that member, except as otherwise prohibited.

    4.3 RIGHT TO PROTEST
    A member shall have the right to protest the validity of a vehicle, irregularity during competition, competitor behavior, and competitor’s failure to adhere to established guidelines. Protests should include a description of the occurrence, date of incident, and evidence via replay footage when applicable. All protests should be sent to a Race Steward and/or official immediately after incident.

    Old club thread linked thanks for the suggestion.

    I have my LCE (in the xbox right now) but I had to start this thread and my wife is trying to figure out how to check her oil lol.....

    I haven't even done the intro race yet. I got home like 10 min ago.

    I will get through it and set up the club since Chris won't be home for a while.

    I'll edit when I get it up.

    Whatever you decide on, we will need to Find/Replace GTP on the Google Docs spreadsheet with FP or FMP or whatever. ;)

    Is this club open for anyone? I'd love to just race around with some strangers in 4, and even share some of my (crappy though) designs!

    My vote is for either FP Racing or FP Motorsports.

    Everyone post up some suggestions and then I will add a poll to the OP with the suggestions. If I can; or I will just start a new poll thread. This is something we need to vote on with everyone involved.

    I wish I would have copied my formatted OP from GTP.... Grrrrrrrr. Captain Hindsight!

    Ok NOW I am off to enjoy my CSR and FM4. I will check back later!

    Yes David, there are still openings! Hopefully vile will post up the info in the OP again from the original one he created.

    I was fine with the FMP one that Chris came up with. I know he created it already. But whatever, I will join the one he made when I get home. If that changes, I will just join the new one! ;)

    I see what you mean. For now though it's TEAM FMP. I will get with Jimbo and see what's up if there is another design he can do. The Team tag is still going to be FMP since it won't let me change it.

    I think "FP Motorsports" covers just about everything..we do, it's not just about racing Perhaps if your feeling good you could do an FPM smaller M?

    What do you think?
