    For the seventh time, Virtual Reality Racing presents its flagship competition, the Autobacs Super GT Championship. The championship will feature two distinct classes, GT500, a class primed with lightning quick machines, and GT300, a more open class with a wider variety of available vehicles. The season will take place across eight weekends, with a Driver's and Team's Championship available for both classes, as well as an outright championship for the competitor with the most points among the entire field. For the seventh time since 2013, VRR invites you to the hottest competition of the summer. The battles begin here.

    So to clarify, to be eligible to type 'AD' to request a Safety Car, you either need engine damage or three different mechanically damaged components? I like this regulation, I feel like it will reliably keep Safety Car interventions to a minimum.
    In the event this regulation is not being followed, and the leaders are trying to pack the whole field up prior to meeting the "virtual" safety car on the pit straight, can 6.2 be nullified and allow cars to overtake as to not have their gap be compromised if they want to pit?

    The start of our seventh season is rapidly approaching, and it's the biggest field yet. For those unfamiliar with how VRR processes championships where elimination qualifying takes place, all participants that want to compete each race must confirm they will be in attendance prior to race day. The finalized entry list is marked at 10:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time each Friday night before an event. A couple things to note.

    -Balance of Performance for Fuji is finalized and updated in the BoP table in the OP.
    -Track conditions for qualifying and the race is in the event calendar portion of the rulebook.
    -For the first race, only the defending Driver's Champions are safe from knock out qualifying.
    -In the instance that I do not qualify for the race, only 8 GT300 entries will make the race out of fairness in the Championship standings. I will be a race director if that ever becomes the case.
