    Standard clean OLR rules apply:

    • All Hard Surfaces are track. This includes rumble strips, concrete, cobbles, etc
    • If your lap gets flagged with the Forza Invalidation Indicator: /!\ Your lap may still count as long as it fits the rest of the listed criteria (i.e. two tires were on/above the track when the /!\ indicator came up)
    • However, if you get the Forza Invalidation Indicator: /!\ at the start of your lap, the lap will not count as you may have gained an unfair advantage at the end of the previous lap
    • Rewind MUST be set to OFF
    • 2 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the game
    • Anything we haven’t thought of that could be construed as cheating
    • Save your replay and keep it safe for at least 6 weeks after the deadline

    Submission And Participation:

    When you have verified your lap is clean and the best you can do, visit http://frs.atspace.co.uk/submit.
    Fill out each field and click Submit at the bottom to complete the process.

    This week's time needs to be submitted before ***INSERT DATE*** by 11:59PM Pacific Standard Time. This is GMT -8 or -7 depending on daylight savings time.

    If you encounter any issues with the submission form or process, please send a PM to Terronium-12, Jump_Ace or Brian 7h3 King.

    Feel free to post your best times in this thread. You can compare how you stack up with other participants throughout the week by visiting the FRS Weekly Splits Leaderboard (which can be found here: http://frs.forzaplanet.net). Also note the following:

    • You can submit only ONCE (be sure to give it your best effort)
    • Please give it your best effort as sandbagging is highly frowned upon in the Forza Planet community.

    Please refer to this Time Calculator Website to properly add multiple times together (when necessary) before submitting your time.

    This is a friendly competition open to drivers of all abilities, so start racing and we'll see you in the results :) :tup:

    FRS Point System:

    We have compiled a point system for the FRS organized by division:
    Below are some key points on how it works:
    • Divisional Points are as follows:
      1st Place - 8 points
      2nd Place - 7 points
      3rd Place - 6 points
      4th Place - 5 points
      5th Place - 4 points
      Participation - 2 points​
    • You get 1 point just for submitting the qualifier run and 2 points just for submitting a time for that week. The better you place for that week, the more points you will receive.
    • Your points will get reset back get 5 points total for being promoted to a higher division.
    • The points will reset every 4 months, completing a 'season'.
    • Once a season ends, the point system will reset back to week 1 using the following week's FRS combo.

    Time Verification:

    SPECIAL NOTE: When running your weekly time, please restart your session every 15 or sooner (10 to 12 laps depending on the track). FM4 will stop recording your replay after (roughly) 15 minutes. Thus, if you run your best lap after it stops recording, it won't count as you can't provide the replay.

    Save your replay and keep it at least 6 weeks after submission:

    • Top 1-3 fastest times from each division will be required to submit a replay for verification
    • Any submitted time is subject to a time verification request
    • When a time verification has been requested, the concerned racer must provide a replay within 3 days
    • Failure to do so will result in the submitted time being ignored for official registration
    • Video replays are not accepted (i.e. using camera phone, camcorders, etc.)

    Submitting And Verifying A Requested Replay:

    If a request is made for you to supply a replay, look in the results thread for a "(Replay Required)" to appear next to your name and submitted time. You may also get a PM if a replay hasn't been promptly provided.

    Many hands make little work and if you can assist the Race Stewards in verifying each others lap times, it won't go unappreciated. Follow The Guide To Managing FM4 Replays to verify another drivers submitted time.

    Remember to mark whether the replay was valid or not in the results thread:
    [​IMG] - Clean/Valid Lap
    [​IMG] - Dirty/Invalid Lap
    [​IMG] - DQ'd Lap (only used in the results thread by the Race Stewards)

    The code to insert a flag is. Remember to wrap them in an Image Tag; :

    Race Stewards Comments:

    Take this FF car and push it beyond it's limits on this fun and open course!

    Remember to keep at least two tires on the rumble strip and/or within the white lines on the tarmac. Taking a turn too fast that causes you to go into a run-off, dirt, sand, etc. will invalidate your lap.

    Because the FRS is a new series, here is a quick run-down of what you need to do to participate:

    1. Run the Registry Qualifier if you haven't yet, which can be found HERE.
    2. Now load up this week's FRS Car and Track Combo. Drive your best, clean lap(s). Post your results in this thread as you progress throughout the week.
    3. Compare your splits with other participants by visiting the FRS Weekly Splits Leaderboard
    4. When you've done your best, submit your time before the above deadline using FRS Submission Form found HERE.

    If you have any questions, please post them in the Registry Discussion Thread.
