The PRT Online Racing League will include two Series*: The PRT Endurance Series (PRTES) and PRT RallyX Sprint Series (PRTRX). Each Series will consist of an 8-week Season with a Championship Race in the 8th Week. In both series, racers will be required to race with the same car throughout the entire season, including number and livery. To avoid Flavor of the Month gameplay (because a field of all Beetles would be horrendous), there may be no more than 2 of the same car in play. Car selection for the Inaugural Season will be first come, first served. Car selection for subsequent seasons is addressed below. Details of each Series are as follows: PRT RallyX Sprint Series: PRTRX Events will consist of 1-to-3 Lap Sprint races in Group B Rally Cars. BoP will be employed to ensure a competitive Power-to-Weight Ratio on competing cars. Grid Start Tyre Restrictions - None Tyre Wear - Off Fuel Consumption - Off Boost - Off Slipstream Strength - Real Visible Damage - On Mechanical Damage - Off Grip Reduction on Wet Track/Track Edge - Real Race Finish Delay - 30 seconds Ghosting - None Flag Rules - Off PRTRX Events will include a 10 minute Practice session and a Grid Start. Starting order will be automatically determined by the fastest lap time from the Practice session. Racers will be scored individually using the following system: 1st Place - 10 points 2nd Place - 8 points 3rd Place - 6 points 4th Place - 5 points 5th Place - 3 points 6th Place and lower - 1 point Pole - 1 point Fastest Lap - 1 point The maximum number of points a racer can attain in a single week is 12. PRT Endurance Series: PRTES Events will consist of 100 mile Endurance races in GT3 Cars. BoP will be employed to ensure a competitive Power-to-Weight Ratio on competing cars. Grid Start Tyre Restrictions - None Tyre Wear - 1x Fuel Consumption - 2x Boost - Off Slipstream Strength - Real Visible Damage - On Mechanical Damage - Light Grip Reduction on Wet Track/Track Edge - Real Race Finish Delay - 180 seconds Ghosting - Off Shortcut Penalty - Weak Flag Rules - On Tyre wear and fuel consumption are set to achieve an ideal necessity of pitting at least twice. (Yellow Flag rules may be turned off if it is found to detract from a fun racing experience for all). PRTES Events will include a 15 minute Practice session, a Qualifier and a Grid Start. During the Qualifier, all racers will clear the track, waiting in Pit Road or in Spectate mode until called upon. Once called, the racer will have an Out Lap exiting pit lane, followed by a single Qualifying Lap. This lap will determine their Qualifying time for that event. Racers will be paired into 2 driver teams based on car selection. If not enough same-car pairs are available, then those with matching cars will be teamed first and the rest of the racers will be teamed randomly. In order to avoid two dominant racers always pairing up, teammates will be assigned. Racers will be scored both individually and as a team using the following system: 1st Place - 16 points 2nd Place - 15 points 3rd Place - 14 points 4th Place - 13 points 5th Place - 12 points 6th Place - 11 points 7th Place - 10 points 8th Place - 9 points 9th Place - 8 points 10th Place - 7 points 11th Place - 6 points 12th Place - 5 points 13th Place - 4 points 14th Place - 3 points 15th Place - 2 points 16th Place - 1 point Pole - 3 points Fastest Lap - 1 point Team scores will consist of the combined points of both that team's drivers. Example: Driver 1 wins Pole and finishes 3rd for a total of 17 points. Driver 2 finishes 9th for 8 points. That team's total for the Event is then 25 points. The maximum number of points an individual racer can attain in a single week is 20. The Stakes: The winner of the PRTRX Championship will determine the tracks for both the Opening Week and Championship Race of the following PRTRX Season. The individual winner of the PRTES Championship will receive a $10 PSN Store Card, or the equivalent denomination for their region (Pounds, Euros, Spacebucks, whatever). The drivers of the winning team in the PRTES Championship will determine the tracks for the Opening Week and Championship Race of the following PRTES Season. In both Series, car selection for the next season will take place in order from last place to first place, much like professional sports draft pick order in North America (worst team picks first). In this way, we hope to ensure that everyone gets a chance to drive the cars they love and that any given driver who dominates with a specific car cannot simply continue to do so over and over again - and, as mentioned above, avoidance of FotM gameplay. In the Event of a Tie: In the event of a tie in the PRTES Indivisual Championship, we will look to the following factors to break the tie: Wins > Podiums > Top 5's > Poles > Fastest Laps If it is somehow still tied after all of those factors are taken into account, the winner will be decided by a 2 lap sprint race on the Tokey East Inner Loop. Missing Events: If you are unable to participate in an event, you will receive 1 point for that week's event as if you had participated and finished last. DNF: If during an event you must exit the race, you will be scored based on your final place. If one driver is DNF, they will be last place and receive 1 point. If, for example, 3 drivers are DNF, the first to retire is placed last, next 15th, and finally the last driver to DNF is 14th. Each will be scored accordingly. *Provided enough interest, we may grow to include a Rally Series in the future.
