    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uaTn6fRmuowSnW2tXn0ZuX8wAAAZ2foPiL0DjenDPu0/edit?usp=sharing

    Drivers will be met with post race time penalties decided by review
    the stewards, incidents that happen mid race, such as collisions,
    can be reported to the stewards or moderators post race via
    private message on PSN. note that incidents may still be
    investiggated even if a report is not given. the stewards
    PSN usernames can be found at the top of the thread.
    The severity of the penalty may change depending on
    the case.

    Track limits are two wheels within the white lines and/or on kerbs minimum,
    Track limit penalties may also be used. Races without automated track limits will have track limits manually reviewed. Track cutting will result in a post race time penalty with severity case dependent.

    Once a decision has been made, a statement will be put in the "Stewards Office"
    channel in the discord server, along with the reason and punishment for the
    incident, if a driver wishes to dispute an incident, we ask that you do it
    respectfully and in private.

    below, there is a list of some of the penalisable offences:

    Crossing the pit entry line on entry to the pit lane.

    Crossing the pit exit line on exit of the pit lane.

    Pushing another car off of the circuit.

    Causing a deliberate collision.

    Causing a accidental collision.

    Re-joining the circuit in a dangerous manner.

    Passing unstricken cars under yellow flags.

    Blocking faster cars under blue flags.

    This is only a shortlist of penalties.

    below are some links that may help you understand what we expect from our drivers, and threads
    we refer to when reviewing incidents, and a link to another ARS forum which has more penalties listed.

    I would suggest perhaps splitting this into Pro & Am lobbies (if there are enough sign ups). GT3 categories have always been popular so I'm sure it will work out. (I'll still stay as reserve as I cannot commit to a full season at the moment)

    The issue with doing that (if we had enough sign ups) would be that we don't have enough staff to run two lobbies
