    • 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: 30s penalty
    • Illegal blocking: 10s penalty
    • Illegal overtake: 20s penalty
    • Unsafe rejoin on track: 15s penalty
    • Impeding faster traffic: 20s penalty
    • Gaining advantage by exceeding track limits: 15s penalty
    • Crossing Pit Entry line: 20s penalty
    • Crossing Pit Exit line: 20s 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 several race suspensions or outright ban from the series and/or the organization.

    There are 3 reasons why we call for a caution.
    1. 3 or more cars must make contact in a crash resulting from contact.
    2. 2 or more cars with heavy damage resulting from a crash.
    3. Adverse racing (lobby stability) conditions in general, with or without an accident.
    If all cars are still facing the correct direction and moving forward without damage, 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/80 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.
    • If you enter pit lane on the backstretch under caution, you are committed to making a pit stop.
    • 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
    In case of championship tie after the season finale: The driver with the most wins in the season will receive 1 Bonus point. 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) and the winner will receive 1 bonus point.
    Disclaimer: You are eligible for the driver's championship only in the classes which you are full-time.
    • You do not have to have a teammate to participate in this series.
    • Just fill out the form and I will update.
    • No more than 2 drivers per team per class.
    • Team Points are the total of the top 2 cars added together.
    • You will only receive team points after signing up as a team.
    • Front Runner Award (Most wins per class)

    • Primary sponsors are exclusive to each team/independent driver
    • Car numbers and primary sponsors can no longer be changed after round 1

    Please clarify for me. Are we to have varying pairings of two classes each week?
    Therefore in order to participate in both heats each race day, drivers ought signup one car per class (6cars)?

    It's not 2 heats, it's one multi-class race per week. The 2 classes will vary from week to week though yes.

    @damonc84 will most likely partner me in another Audi.

    Also, signed up just for TCR for now. Still deliberating whether to run another class or not.

    Updated sign-ups. Also am going to run TA2 and TC classes full-time. Don't know which TA2 car for sure yet, but chose the Civic in TC. This evening I plan to some pictures to show the mandatory decals, I will also make the class designators public.

    @aceboy127 I'm switching my TA3 car to the Aston Martin. I'm more comfortable with it and it sounds nice.

    Please clarify this.
    Also is there a limit to how many cars are implemented through attending all races?
