9.2: The fastest lap in a race gives out an extra point to the driver.

9.4: Points scored by both drivers will be counted for in the Teams' Championship.

10.1: All times of day below are in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). You can use this tool to convert times of day to your local time zone.

11.1: If a driver gets engine damage in an accident, they are required to report it by typing “ED” in the in-game chat, to make sure other drivers are careful when driving around the damaged car. Failing to report engine damage will result in a warning.

12.1: In the very rare occurrence of a server disconnect (in which almost all, if not all drivers are kicked out of the session), a red flag is called. In this situation, the drivers and race director will attempt to restart the race in the running order before the disconnect, and race the remaining laps. The restart is conducted with a standing start.
