    Information:
    The VDC Pro-Am Series consists of 4 scheduled events. Drivers compete in a single elimination Top 8 or Top 16 bracket depending on the amount of registered participants. Drivers individually compete head-to-head against other competitors in single elimination runs on the designated course. Competitors progress through a competition bracket and are awarded points towards the season championship. Head to head Runs are judged and scored based on a number of pre-determined criteria where the higher scoring entrant moves on to the next level of the bracket. Points are awarded based on finishing order and cumulative season points will determine the championship order.

    Driver Eligibility:
    - Must have registered for the series.

    Judges:
    Pro-Am: 3 Judges from Pro Championship
    Pro Champ: 3 Judges from Pro-Am

    Race Operation:
    There will be an hour pre-event practicing. You will be given a 5 minute warning when practice is over to exit the track, failing to do so within the 5 minutes will result in a DNF from the event. You are all expected to be there by comp begins, If you are late (before you run, which could be first) you will get a DNF and your opponent (if there) will move on the next stage. Tire wear will be on, this means if you are up for a OMT you will be allowed to exit track (back to pits) and get back on track to reset your tires. IRL they get 5 minutes for new tires so you will get 15 seconds Then warm them up and get back to the line.

    Judging:
    The criteria for judging are as follows:
    - Line
    - Angle
    - Overall Impression

    Line:
    The drift line is defined as the ideal path a vehicle must take on course and is marked by inner clipping points, outer clipping points, and transition zones. Inner Clipping Point are reference points on the course where the vehicles front bumper should come as close as possible to the reference point. Outer Clipping Points are reference points are scored by determining how close the corner of the vehicle’s rearbumper comes to the point. Transition Zones are areas on track where the direction of the line changes and vehicles must change the direction of their drift. Scoring will be based on the execution of the transition. The drift line will be given when track layout is posted.

    Angle:
    The maximum angle at which a driver can maintain control of their vehicle without sacrificing speed.

    Overall Impression
    Overall Impression is the most subjective part of the drivers runs. Overall Impression is just what it sounds like: The drivers overall ability to take the specific judging criteria and display itin the most personal way each driver can. That is the essence of style. Examples include drifting line and proximity to barriers/obstacles.

    Qualify:
    All competitors will be required to qualify in order to make the competition.

    Qualifying Scoring:
    Judging will be done by 1 judge. The judge will judge based on 3 criterias; Line, Angle, Overall Impression.

    Line = 20 Points Possible
    Angle = 25 Points Possible
    Overall Impression = 30 Points Possible

    A perfect score would be 75 points.

    Spinouts:
    Anytime a driver spins out or experiences major under-steer during a run, a 0 score will be awarded. Off Course Unless otherwise specified during the judging meetings, if at any time 3 tires or more are off course during a run, the driver will be given a score of “0”.

    Clipping Points:
    All clipping points will be sorted on track layout. Anytime an Inner Clipping Point is hit, the vehicle will be considered to be off course, and points will either be deducted, or the driver will be scored a 0, depending on the severity of the hit. Hitting an Outer Clipping Point with anything other than the driver's rear bumper will be counted as 3 tires off course and will be scored a 0. (i.e. hitting the line with the rear tire, door, etc.) Slight contact with a wall in the Outer Clipping Zone will not result in a point deduction if the hit does not disturb or affect the course of the drivers run. This means no major corrections were needed after the hit and the driver was still able to maintain good line, speed, and angle. If the hit occurs at any other point on track other than the marked Outer Clipping Zones points may be deducted. If a spin or major under steer results from contact with an Outer Clipping Zone an automatic score of 0 will be given.

    Tandem Elimination Rounds:
    Tandem rounds are based on two (2) runs, in Head-to-Head format, with competitors paired up basedon seeding position. The higher qualifier will lead the first run and the second led by the lower qualifier.The critical success factor is for the lead car to be able to run the course without error while being pressured by the following car. The following car is attempting to out drive the lead car. Driver consistency during a tandem battles is critical.

    Lead Car:
    The lead car must be able to clear the course without making any errors due to distraction or pressureby the following car trailing close behind.

    Following Car:
    The following car needs to run the same basic line as the lead car but may also take a higher line in order to pressure the lead driver. Taking a lower line than the lead car will result in a loss of advantage. If the lead car is off line, then the following car will gain advantage points by staying on the correct line. The following car should keep as close to the lead car as possible to gain the advantage.

    Passing:
    Passing is NOT encouraged during tandem battles. Passing is only allowed if the lead car fumbles, is well off line, or loses drift. Passing must be executed in a safe and professional manner. A safe pass is one that is done in such a way that the car being passed does not lose any speed after the pass is complete. Passing must be done while in drift, without interrupting the line of the car being passed and in the proper line. If a pass results in contact, the passing car may be penalized.

    Collisions:
    In the event of contact between two cars during a tandem battle, the driver at fault will lose advantage points. Incidental contact is allowed, but not encouraged. If possible, drivers are required to complete the entire course while maintaining drift, even if the other driver crashes, hits, spins, stalls, oris not able to complete the run. Drivers are always being judged as long as they are on course.

    Exactly!!

    The sponsorship thing is weird as well. If that ends up winning in the poll then all of my team, including myself, will be sponsored by Team NEMESIS. :sly: :tup: They will be sponsored with paint chips.

    I think you just trying to do too much with the whole sponsor thing. These real life manufacturers don't care about a video game and the one's that do care have already paid Polyphony to be in the game! If you want to add "sponsors" to the event itself - then hey, nothing we can do about that. But sponsors for the players just isn't seem feasible.

    Well put Gambino. It's just too much for a game. Maybe some runes like 6-cylinders max maybe? I think that wouldnt be a bad idea. Gets rid of the v8's, and encourages mistakes from things like turbo lag.

    Although i'm 100% behind the sponsors thing, Falken and Monster are a bit bigger than the small mail order company your brother managed to get. I still think the sponsors should be purely roll play so you are just having the colours and name behind you instead of chasing for actual sponsorship.

    Steve, I don't mind what your doing. The only problem I see is people with different budgets. If we all had the same budget then it would be ok. The only other problem would be, if we do use the budget system, Your better off getting rid of the power limit.

    Thats the sad thing, plus it goes to show power isn't everything from that video. 2nd place in a KE70(?) unless it had a V8, which wouldn't surprise me lol.

    how about this?

    so after 5 rounds,
    the top8 overall through the season move onto 3 extra rounds of their choice
    no limits except for tires,
    the table set to 0
    they fight in the 3 rounds for 1st place
    or you could keep the power limit if you want.
    get me now?
