VRR Gen 2 Main Logo.png
Using the blueprint we've tested with the Suzuka 1,000km race we run annually, VRR is branching out, and taking on a Supercar Series staple, the Bathurst 1,000. Each car will require two drivers, with supertuned Gr.4 machines being the cars used to navigate the Mountain. Hope to see a bunch of faces on the grid!

3.1. VRR is a clean racing environment. Rough, but fair competition is expected. Accidents will be reviewed after each race and post race time penalties may be assessed.
3.2. Drivers must be aware of their surroundings at all times when competing in close proximity with other cars. Lack of awareness is not a valid excuse for avoidable contact.
3.3. Drivers attempting to lap cars will need to use flashing lights as well as patience in passing.
3.4. Drivers being lapped do not have to pull off of the racing line, but must maintain a constant and predictable line until after they have been cleared by the passing car.
3.5. Drivers that have been lapped cannot fight to regain that lap unless they are engaged in a battle for direct position on track.
3.5.1. Drivers lapped due to pit strategy, but being faster than the lead lap cars, may engage in on track battle to regain time.
3.6. The racing surface is determined to be the asphalt/concrete which contains the racing line, as well as the multi-colored curbstones lining the inside and outsides of most corners. Sausage curbing, and astroturf do not count as part of the racing surface unless specifically stated as sub-rule exemptions below.
3.7. Pit entry and exit lines are to be respected at all times. Drivers that are found to cross the solid lines entering or exiting pit lane will receive a post race time penalty.
3.8. Passing under yellow flag conditions is prohibited. Drivers that pass under a neutralized race condition will be penalized.
3.9. Ragequitting races are seen as a sign of disrespect for the series organizers, the other competitors, and the spirit of racing. Leaving races in such a fashion will be met with consequences.
3.10. Drivers vying to defend a position on track are allowed one defensive move as a proactive measure. Making a defensive move as a reactive measure will earn a warning/penalty.
3.10.1. Weaving across the racing surface in an effort to break slipstream is illegal under this ruling.
4.1. Safety car periods will be brought out for instances like mass disconnects and accidents that meet a certain criteria.
4.1.1. The criteria for accidents that bring out safety car periods are crashes in which three or more competitors sustain engine damage and/or sustain damage to two or more parts of their car. All competitors that receive these kinds of damage must type the letters "AD" for Accident-Damage. Upon which, the safety car driver will type either "SCD" or "Safety Car deployed".
4.1.2. In the case of a mass disconnection, the Safety Car driver, or the race leader, will type "SCD MD" and lead the field to a red flag stop on the pit straight. The race leader or Safety Car driver will record the order of the competitors remaining and then everyone will exit the race and wait for the disconnected competitors to return. Once those competitors have returned, the race will restart with with less laps based on how much of the scheduled race distance was remaining when the mass disconnect occured. A manual safety car formation lap will allow everyone to get into their proper grid positions, and then racing will resume.
4.1.2.1. Mass disconnections are viewed as three or more competitors dropping out of the event lobby in under 180 seconds.
4.2. When a safety car period is deployed, overtaking is immediately prohibited unless the car being overtaken is wounded by engine damage and off to the side of the racing surface or off track completely.
4.2.1. Cars that are wounded are to stay off of the racing line and yield to undamaged cars in tight sections with their hazard lights on.
4.2.2. All cars are to keep a reasonable pace until they pass the pit lane entrance to finish their current lap. As the pit lane is open at all times, drivers can elect to use the pit lane or proceed to catch the safety car queue.
4.2.3. The overall race leader will be the head of the safety car queue. The overall race leader will be required to maintain a speed limit of 62 miles per hour, or 100 kilometers per hour for the entire duration of the safety car period.
4.2.4. Once all of the cars still running in the race have caught up to the safety car queue, any lapped down cars stuck in the middle of the queue will be directed to drop to the back of the queue in order of their position.
4.2.5. Once the field is deemed to be in its correct order, the overall race leader will be directed to lead the restart of the race at the end of the current lap.
4.3. In the instance that the event integrity may be compromised due to technical failures, the race director has the ability to call the race once the race leader has completed 75% race distance.
4.4. Under a Safety Car period, all competitors must be single file, with 0.5 seconds minimum between each car for most of the period. Once the field enters the last sector of the track, competitors may bunch up closer to allow for a decent restart.
4.5. To end the first stint of the race, there will be a mandatory caution thrown when the race leader begins lap 77 of the race, lap 78 of the session. The field will be sorted like normal.
4.5.1. This safety car period is necessary to allow the second stint to be the finishing stint of the race, instead of having the drivers of the second stint competing against a clock, they will be competing with their class competitors directly.
5.1. The race lobby will be opened at 1:40 p.m, with the track closed to all competitors. Drivers must be present in the pit lane by 1:45 p.m. for scrutineering.
5.2. Scrutineering will be done by the chief steward to ensure every competitor's car is of the correct regulations in accordance to the Balance of Performance. After car specifications have been checked, the field will be organized by the chief steward for the correct starting grid.
5.3. The last step in scrutineering is ensuring clear visibility of all other competitors by each other.
5.3.1. First step to fixing visibility issues is to clear temporary online data. This can be done from the options menu inside the lobby.
5.3.2. If issues persist, the driver affected will be instructed to exit the lobby, save game before exiting completely, reboot, and then rejoin the lobby.
5.3.3. If issues persist beyond the previous point, the driver will be asked to sit the race out and let a reserve driver come in to take their place.
5.4. Race starts will be manual rolling starts following a manual formation lap.
5.4.1. All cars will follow the safety car at a speed of 62 miles per hour/100 kilometers per hour.

6.1.1.1. Liveries in violation of rule 2.1.3. will be subject to an unappealable disqualification.

6.1.5. Rejoining the racing surface in a dangerous manner after going off track will be subject to a 15 second post race time penalty.

Going to explain how qualifying is going down since we have an idea now on how many we'll have for the race. Qualifying will be a single 45 minute session, which will go from 1:30 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. Eastern U.S. time. Only one driver per entry is required to attend qualifying.
