    • During races, use of the in-game chat for any reason besides communicating with race officials is strictly prohibited.
    • IRS reserves the right to punish any of its members should they exhibit disruptive, offensive behavior that ruins the experience of others.
    • Clean, fair racing is always expected from all drivers.
    • Contact between cars is permitted so long as contact does not result in another car going off track, damage to another car, or any outcome where contact is deemed excessive.
    • When defending track position, drivers are only allowed to make one move in defense. Excessive defending constitutes to illegal blocking.
    • Overtakes are expected to be done fairly and cleanly. Overtaking drivers are expected to use their better judgment to ascertain whether they have gained control of the racing line.
    • If contact is made that results in another car going off-track, the offending car is expected to surrender track position to the other car involved in the incident as soon as possible.
    • A car rejoining the track after going off-track must rejoin the track in a safe manner. Approaching cars will have the right of way over cars that are rejoining.
    • Heavily damaged cars are expected to stay off the racing line until they get back to the pits for repairs (for Heavy damage settings), or until the auto-repair completes (for Light damage settings). Cars coming around heavily damaged cars are expected to safely get around these cars.
    • Lapped cars are expected to give way to faster cars at the soonest possible opportunity and are not allowed to interfere with any on-track battles between faster cars. It is the responsibility of lapped cars to be aware of faster traffic coming through. Lapped cars deemed to have impeded faster traffic will be penalized.

    • Generally, track limits are represented by either the white lines or the kerbs wherever present on track. However, these rules may be adjusted depending on the track and in doing so will be properly specified by the series organizer.
    • A car with two tires on the defined track limits is already considered having two tires off-track.
    • If a car gains an advantage by going over track limits, drivers are expected to reduce speed just enough to negate any potential advantage gained. Repeated instances of gaining an advantage by exceeding track limits results in a penalty.
    • Any overtake done by exceeding track limits is considered an illegal overtake and any offending are cars expected to immediately return the position(s) gained. The only exception to this rule is when the overtake is performed in avoidance of an accident that occurred ahead.
    • Crossing the white lines at pit entry and/or pit exit results in a penalty.
    • Causing a collision: 30s penalty
    • Illegal blocking: 10s penalty

    3 or more cars must make contact in a crash resulting from contact; or adverse racing (weather) conditions in general, with or without an accident.

    If all cars are still facing the correct direction and moving forward, this does not necessitate calling a caution. This would be considered incidental contact or a racing incident. But if it seems warranted based on the amount of contact that took place, call a caution. Calling a caution is the responsibility of the drivers involved. All cautions will be reviewed by the stewards. Calling an unwarranted or incorrect caution could result in either a penalty or a post-race disqualification.
    To call a caution, you must type the letter "C" into the chat box. All drivers involved in the incident should type "C" to specify their intent to call a caution. The lobby host will then confirm to all the drivers that there is a caution and the procedure will begin.

    Once the caution is thrown the overall race leader will gently slow down and all cars will group up behind. Any cars behind the incident may pass through. Cars rejoining the track must do so cautiously and blend back in with the field appropriately. After grouping up, all cars trapped between their class leader and the overall race leader (between them in the queue) are to take a wave-by at a specified time (called by actual IRS officials in chat and mic) and catch the back of the line without passing amongst themselves. Drivers that were "punted" on a road course will receive their position back under caution. After this is completed, the pits can be opened for everyone and the race can be restarted after any additional non-pit wave-bys are completed, with the classes separated at the restart by speed.

    Upon exiting the pits, drivers will line up single file and prepare for the restart. The leader will initiate the restart in the restart zone. Do Not jump the start. Please respect the position in front of you. You cannot pass before you get to the start finish line. There will be no more cautions with 5 laps to go.
    • Caution speed: 80 Mph/129 Kph
    • Please signify whether you are pitting or not by moving to the white line on the inside of the racing surface.
    • No last-minute fake outs.
    • Pitting is not required.
    • All cars pit on the same lap, including lapped cars.
    • You do not have to have a teammate to participate in this race.
    • Just fill out the form and I will update.
    • No more than 3 drivers per team.

    Normally I wouldn't make a big deal about this, but in my opinion the two cars drive differently, and the one used for testing was the M-Power version.

    If that's how it is, then fine.
    I don't find any difference for either version, and I've had friends for FIA switch between each version and get the same times. But if it's the rules, so be it.

    In accordance with the room settings posted, would the minumum tyre be RH with any other R tyre being available for use, or would it just be RH?

    Yay for new entries, apologies for the inconvenience and flip-flop. Evidently, I'd like to withdraw my GTE entry.
