    The GT500 Cup is sanctioned by the SRF (Sim Racing Federation) and will follow the “GT” ruleset of their current regulations (v2.0). The full document can be seen here.

    Alongside the SRF rulebook, the GT500 series also uses their license tier system. The system works by earning/losing points on your license, determining your driver tier. All new drivers in the SRF start in the Amateur tier, with 35 points to start. Drivers earn points by finishing in higher positions and by racing cleanly, and lose points with unsportsmanlike behavior or incidents.

    The series uses a system sometimes known as “first, second, third offense, etc.”, which means that penalties will be greater if a rule is broken several times. Example: Driver 1 missed one race without notifying the admins, and was given a warning. Later in the season he missed a race again without notifying the admins, and on this occasion was given a drive-through penalty.

    Drivers will face post-race penalties awarded by the Stewards in case of them causing an incident. Incidents that occur during Qualifying or the race can be reported to the Stewards, via a message presenting the report like shown in the example below:


    Incident Report

    Lap 1, turn 7

    Driver that caused the incident: Driver X
    Other drivers involved: Driver Y, Driver Z

    Description: Driver X left the track to overtake me and forced me off the track. He then went for a divebomb on Drivers Y and Z, crashing into both of them.

    This format is used to simplify the process of finding the incident on replay.

    The penalty awarded and how many penalty points are awarded is decided by the Stewards, depending on the severity of the incident and the amount of drivers affected.

    Actions that can be penalized include (these are not all of the actions that can be penalized):
    • Crossing the pit entry/exit line
    • Causing an avoidable collision, be it deliberate or accidental
    • Forcing other drivers off track
    • Rejoining the track in an unsafe manner
    • Passing other cars under yellow flags and under the Safety Car.
    • Blocking a faster car under blue flag conditions
    • Blocking other drivers while defending
    • Unsportsmanlike conduct
    • Rage quitting
    • Missing a race and not reporting to the admins

    Note: To serve a drive through penalty, the driver must go into the pits at the end of the first lap, without changing tires, refueling, or repairing the car.

    This list does not cover all offenses that can be penalized. It is up to the Stewards whether an incident is penalized or not.

    Points are given to the following finishing positions.

    1st: 15 points
    2nd: 12 points
    3rd: 10 points
    4th: 8 points
    5th: 6 points
    6th: 4 points
    7th: 2 points
    8th: 1 point
    9th or lower: 0 points

    • The fastest lap awards one extra point in both championships, regardless of finishing position.
    • Points that both drivers score count for the Teams championship.

    The top 5 finishing drivers are given extra weight ballast for the next 2 races. The ballast is given as follows.

    1st: 5% extra
    2nd: 4% extra
    3rd: 3% extra
    4th: 2% extra
    5th: 1% extra

    If a major incident occurs on track during the race, the Full Course Caution will be used. This procedure consists of the entire field lining up behind the race leader and driving at a reduced speed until the Race Director signals for the green flag.

    Each circuit is assigned a Restart Zone, which is an area of the track in which a race can be restarted, with the leader deciding when to accelerate.

    If a driver is involved in an incident and believes an FCC is necessary, he/she must type “VD” (which stands for vehicle damage) in the in-game chat. If multiple drivers send this message and/or show to have significant car damage, and/or the race director deems it necessary to call for an FCC, he will do so by typing “FCC” (standing for Full Course Caution) in the in-game chat. The race leader must then slow down to a maximum speed of 80mph/128kmh and allow the field to form up behind him/her. When the Race Director calls for the FCC to end, all drivers will continue driving in a line until they reach the circuit's Restart Zone, where the leader will choose when to accelerate. Overtaking is not allowed until the timing line is crossed.

    The pitlane remains open for fuel, tire and/or repair pitstops during an FCC period.


    If a driver drops down the order during an FCC period, be it for a spin, crash or another reason, they cannot return to their own position.

    Drivers must maintain a minimum distance of one and a half (1.5) car lengths between each other.

    Each circuit is assigned a Restart Zone, which is an area of the track in which a race can be restarted, with the leader deciding when to accelerate.

    The in-game grid start option will be used, with the drivers driving in a single file for one lap, in the same way as in a Full Course Caution, following the leader. Once that lap is concluded, the green flag waves and the race begins. Each circuit is assigned a Restart Zone, and the leader can choose to speed up at any moment inside this Zone. Overtaking is not allowed until the timing line is crossed.

    Drivers are only allowed to make a pitstop at the end of the Formation Lap to repair car damage. Pitstops for fuel and/or tires during the Formation Lap are not allowed.


    The maximum speed allowed in the Formation Lap is 80mph/128kmh.

    If a driver drops down the order during an FL period, be it for a spin, crash or another reason, they cannot return to their own position.

    Drivers must maintain a minimum distance of one and a half (1.5) car lengths between each other.

    If a server disconnect occurs, drivers and staff will attempt to restart the race in the running order before the disconnect to complete the remaining laps. The red flag restart begins with one lap under Formation Lap conditions. After that lap, the remaining laps are raced.

    For procedures on Formation Laps, see the "Formation Lap Procedures" tab above.

    Introducing Livery Week

    At the race weekend in Autopolis (October 11th), drivers and teams will be able to create special liveries for that particular race! Livery week is an opportunity for drivers to create new designs and showcase them to others.

    Liveries made for Livery Week will need to follow the existing livery regulations (see above)
