    • 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.

    • 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.
    The following is a list of actions, which could incur a penalty. All observed occurrences will be reviewed and penalties will be awarded accordingly. Penalties for similar issues may vary in severity due to the severity of the incident and how it effected the outcome of the race.

    Are the lobbies going to be scored separately as if it was iRacing splits like last year, or will it be an overall multi-lobby race?

    It will likely be scored separate for the official results. I may combine them as an unofficial result table.

    The Astons must have the Corvette GT2 engines, because man they’re popular :lol:

    Hopefully there’s more P2s coming. I’d like a closer field this year.

    Yeah.

    Watch that change soon.

    Calling it now, suddenly BMW will see all the love a day after changes happen to the BoP.

    For what it’s worth, two of the Astons would’ve been Fords if the car was available this time around.

    I thought @Timlour already registered me. Is the last spot taken?

    I was going to run on the same team as him in LMP1 with Star Alliance as the sponsor.

    For the IRS decal requirements, we just need one of them near the number plate right? Not all of them? Hopefully? lol

    Yeah, just one decal near the numberplate on both sides will be fine. Also, still waiting on that number change Turbo.
