    INTERNATIONAL RACING SERIES
    ~PRESENTS~
    1st Annual GT2 Championship
    Saturdays at 9:00pm Eastern

    I've always been interested in the off the wall type of series. Series that are not to common to see existing in other leagues. I like to try these ideas to see what the reception will be like and if this is something we can continue to build on in the future. With that being said, it is my pleasure to bring you the inaugural season of the IRS GT2 Championship​
    • Using the stock livery is prohibited.
    • Any livery that contains foul language, pornographic material, and/or political themes is not allowed. Violation of this rule will result in the driver getting kicked from the race lobby.
    • Number plates are required and cars must have their numbers visible at both sides of the car.
    • Drivers are free to design custom numbers for the number plates.
    • Windshield banners, driver names and yellow headlight covers are optional.
    • Mid-season livery change requires league steward notification.
    • Number Plate Link
    • Every driver is expected to adhere to the gtplanet forums code of conduct.
    • Public verbal attacks against any IRS member, whether thru the forums, in-game lobbies, or voice chats is strictly prohibited.
    • 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.
    • Driving backwards on track is always strictly prohibited and results in an immediate disqualification and possible suspension from the series and/or the organization.
    • All cars are expected to be moving forward on track unless recovering from an incident.
    • Bump drafting is permitted on all tracks within reasonable circumstances.
    • Intentional or payback actions will be harshly penalized.
    • At least two tires must always be kept within track limits.
    • 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: 15 second penalty
    • Illegal blocking: 5 second penalty
    • Illegal overtake: 10 second penalty
    • Unsafe rejoin on track: 10 second penalty
    • Impeding faster traffic: 10 second penalty
    • Gaining advantage by exceeding track limits: 10 second penalty
    • Crossing Pit Entry line: 5 second penalty
    • Crossing Pit Exit line: 5 second penalty
    • Poor Driving Standards*
    • Unsportsmanlike Behavior*
    *Penalties for Poor Driving Standards and Unsportsmanlike Behavior will be at the discretion of IRS officials, and can range between a number of race suspensions or outright ban from the series and/or the organization.

    • 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.

    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: 50 Mph
    • 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.
    • You are not allowed to cross the pit entry and exit lines.
    • Pitting is not required.
    • All cars pit on the same lap, including lapped cars.
    • 20 points to Win Race
    • 17 for 2nd, 15 for 3rd, 13 for 4th, etc.
    • 1 Bonus point: Pole Position
    • 1 Bonus point: Fastest Lap
    • We will be dropping your 2 worst finishes or DNS.
    In case of championship tie after the season finale: 1 Bonus point for most wins in the season. If there is still a tie for the lead there will be a 5-lap shoot-out at a track the series runs at during the season (will take a vote among not eligible competitors) winner will receive 1 bonus point.
    • You do not have to have a teammate to participate in this series.
    • Just fill out the form and it will update.
    • No more than 3 drivers per team.
    • Team Points are the total of the top 2 cars added together.
    • You will only receive team points after signing up as a team.

    • Driver Points Championship (The driver that scores the most points in the season)
    • Team Championship (The team that scores the most points in the season)

    We shouldn't have any conflicts here. This is scheduled to end 30 minutes before ARL Qualifying begins, so even with a minor delay we should still have plenty of time.

    Signed up. Cool concept with using the Gr.3 road cars. Need to test out the cars before choosing one though.

    Put me down in a Mazda with The Pit Crew team (solo) and no title sponsor.

    Car still needs some work in the garage and livery refinements before racing starts.

    @CPT_RowdyGiff, I'd gladly take another Vette driver like yourself aboard and resurrect White Lightning Motorsports for a season.

    BOP update before race 1.
    The Alfa and Peugeot got a 1% weight increase.
    The Mazda is now at 112% 540 power and 85% 2716 weight.
    All the changes are reflected in the table.
