    Welcome to the RACE F3500 International Series!
    Formula 3500 International Series is a top-level open wheel competition hosted by RACE. Take on eight of the most amazing tracks the world has to offer as you battle for the title.

    Rules and guidelines
    This championship uses the :gtplanet: OnLine Racing rules and guidelines. The only major exception being that you must have two wheels on or vertically in line with the track at any given time (certain situations, e.g. crashing and avoiding a collision without gaining an advantage while doing so, allow for this rule to be dismissed). The track is defined as any piece of tarmac within the white (occasionally yellow) lines.

    Upon exiting pit lane, you may not cross the white line and you are to stay on the same side of the road until the first corner after pit exit. This is a safety measure due to the speed difference between cars exiting the pits and cars carrying speed from the main straight.

    Race week

    The race week takes place on every other Friday at 20:00 / 8 PM BST

    Test start
    Duration: 1 lap

    Duration: 10 minutes
    Type: Race with others

    Race 1:
    Distance: ~ 125km

    The car used in F3500 is the Formula Gran Turismo detuned to following specs:

    Power: 525 hp
    Weight: 650 kg*
    Tyres: Racing Hard

    Driver aids:
    Traction control:

    *the use of success ballast will make the car either lighter or heavier. Ballast will be handed out accordingly:

    1st: +20kg
    2nd: +15kg
    3rd: +10kg
    4th: +5kg​

    The negative values of those will be added to the "reversed top 4" of a given race. Notice: in order to be eligible for deduction of ballast, you must complete at least 90% of the race.

    Points

    1st: 15pts
    2nd: 12pts
    3rd: 10pts
    4th: 8pts
    5th: 6pts
    6th: 5pts
    7th: 4pts
    8th: 3pts
    9th: 2pts
    10th: 1pt

    Pole position (only race 1): 2pts
    Fastest lap of the race: 1pt
    Fastest lap of the week (fastest of the two "Fastest lap of the race"): 1 pts

    Maximal possible points scored in a race week: 35.

    Notice: In order to score full points for your position, you must complete at least 90% of the race. If you complete 50-89% of the race distance, you'll get half points. If you complete less than 50%, you will not score points.​

    Penalties and "Bottleneck zone"
    Throughout the season, a driver may be given time penalties added to their finish time. This varies from 5 seconds for a minor offence to disqualification from the entire weekend/season.

    In addition to these penalties, a penalty point (pp) system is in place. Penalty points are awarded in relation to regular penalties. Accumulate enough, and you will be banned from the remainder of this and/or coming seasons.

    Penalty points are, as a rough guide, distributed according to this. Other penalties may be given if appropriate or repeatedly offended:

    • Minor offence / light grade of medium offence - 0 pp

    • Medium offence / light grade of major offence / repeat/bottleneck minor offences - 1 pp

    • Major offence / repeat/bottleneck medium offence/repeat minor offences in bottleneck zones - 1.5 pp

    • Repeat/bottleneck major offence/repeat medium offences in bottleneck zones - 2 pp

    • Repeat major offences in bottleneck zones - 3 pp
    The penalties given when you reach a certain amount of penalty points are:

    5 pp - 15 second time penalty added to both race of the week. Notice: If you did not finish one or both races, the time penalty will be applied to your next finished race.

    10 pp - Disqualification from race week in which the 10th point was obtained (notice: if the 10th point is given in the same race week as the 5th, the penalty will apply from the following round)

    20 pp - Disqualification from the race week in which the 20th point was obtained as well as the following (notice: if the 20th point is given in the same race week as the 10th, the penalty will apply from the following round). Penalty points given in the next two rounds will also be doubled (you are under supervision by the stewards)

    30 pp - Season ban.

    The severity of each penalty is defined on a case-to-case basis.

    Bottleneck zones are defined as places where traffic is expected to form up in the first few laps after (re)start. Therefore, penalties in these zones are a level higher than elsewhere.

    Disconnect procedure
    Disconnections do happen, and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it. Therefore, this disconnect policy will apply:

    1. If 1 driver disconnects within 2 minutes of the start of the race, said driver must send a PSN message to the event organiser making him aware of this.
      1. If this is done within the first 3 minutes of the race start, the race will be red-flagged and restarted, with the grid order being the same as at the first start. You are therefore required to note your position on the grid, and, if you have time, the name of the driver ahead/behind.
    2. If at least two drivers disconnect within 5 minutes of the start of the race, they must follow above procedure. If this is done, the race will be restarted as described above.
    3. Disconnections after 5 minutes after the start of the race will be treated as engine problems. You will be allowed to start in race 2 if the disconnect happened in race 1.

    Massive pileups - Caution
    Should a massive pileup happen at the start of the race, all drivers involved must use the ingame chat to type "c", meaning they request a caution. If two or more drivers do this, all drivers in the lobby must slow down and perform a pit stop to allow the damaged drivers to repair their car as well as ensuring everybody is equal in relation to tyres (tyre bug) Performing a pit stop is no longer mandatory.

    During these cautions you are required to keep at least three car lengths between you and the car ahead. This way, you should be able to react to a driver slowing down for various reasons.

    During the caution, you are not allowed to use the ingame chat. The only exception is the leading driver, who must use it to inform everyone else of when the race will go back to green, following a single-file restart.

    The pace speed during the cautions is 50 mph / 80 kph.

    The race restarts when the leader crosses the finish line after making aware of the restart by typing "restart" in the ingame chat.

    NOTICE: Calling for a caution due to a mistake you made and involved nobody but you or to prevent being lapped is not a justified reason to call for a caution. Doing so will have severe consequences and may result in season ban.

    A justified caution request would be major pileups in which two or more drivers request a caution.

    Sidenote: for all ITCC drivers, this series is exactly 24 hours before the start of ITCC Race 1.


    RAcing Community Evolved organizes this series, so anyone from our RACE Headquarters can help you with any questions or concerns.

    There is a good point in the madness, though:

    1: Open wheelers are quite fragile
    2: It promotes clean driving

    Sure you can :)

    The simple reason is that I just didn't like Silverstone as much as I liked Brands Hatch during the test sessions. I know BH is much more narrow, but that also plays a role in promoting fair play (I can guarantee you that causing accidents on purpose on tracks such as BH, Monaco and Bathurst are automatically upgraded to next level on the penalty ladder).
