SKILL CONTEST – SPORTING CODE

1. General rules & Driver Conduct

  1. Drivers must use their full name in the game in order to participate in the competition.
  2. To participate in the competition the maximum allowed ping is 150.
  3. Drivers with higher ping or a spiky connection may be asked to leave the server or may be removed from it by the event administrator or Race Director.
  4. All drivers are expected to be ready to run at the designated time for official sessions.
  5. Drivers are expected to have familiarity with the regulations of the championship, as well as the specific and relevant features and rules of the game platform used.
  6. Drivers are expected to have read and understood the General Regulation.
  7. Only the race admins will decide whether a session should be delayed or restarted.
  8. It is not allowed to push the vehicle of another competitor to assist him/her - in case he/she has run out of fuel or experienced a mechanical breakdown etc..
  9. Bump drafting is also prohibited. The drivers shall provide ‘racing room’ to each other.
  10. Unsportsmanlike conduct is subject to penalties. Any driver attempting to wreck or intentionally ram another competitor may be banned from the session or even from the Championship.
  11. Event administrators, Stewards and the Race Director will oversight the sessions. Administrators can report any misconduct to be reviewed by Stewards and the Race Director, and may lead to penalties or removal from the session and/or formal rebuke or ban.

2. Qualifying/Hotlap Session

  1. Drivers must achieve their fastest lap without exploiting external factors. It is forbidden to gain an advantage by exploiting other players on the track, such as bump drafting or driving too close to opponents in front.If a driver does so, he/she may receive a warning or even a penalty for the race session, which may include removal of the best lap time set or the obligation to start at the back of the grid. Slipstreaming may be allowed only if the aforementioned factors are not violated.
  2. Lap invalidation resulting from off-tracks are handled by the game and PTracker. Race control can also check the replay to verify if any violation of track limits has been done.
  3. It is strictly forbidden to stop on-track to teleport back to the garage. Teleporting to the garage may only be allowed from exit routes and other tarmac off-track areas (not grass or gravel), where they cannot disrupt the qualifying of other drivers. Any transgression will be severely penalized by the Stewards, and repeated offenders may receive a formal rebuke or may be banned from the series.
  4. Drivers on the outlap must let other drivers on their fast lap past by moving out of their way. The in-game blue flag system assists drivers in that. Ignoring the blue flag and holding up another driver on their fast lap are conducts that may be penalized by the Stewards.
  5. Exiting the pitlane must be done by exercising caution in order not to disrupt the timed lap of other drivers. It is strictly prohibited to cross the white line/veer and jump onto the ideal line; any violation may result in severe penalty from the Stewards.
  6. Approaching a driver on his/her fast lap and overtaking is forbidden. The driver behind must make sure that there is ample space in front before starting the timed lap while predicting potential pace differences, so that he/she does not disrupt the qualifying lap of the car in front. Drivers who disturb
    another driver on a fast lap from behind may be penalized by the Stewards and repeated offenders may receive a rebuke or ban from the series.

3. Race Start

The race start procedures are handled by the in-game system.

4. Track Limits

  1. Track limits are determined by the game itself, utilizing the in-game warning and penalty system for infractions. Race Control is assisted by PTracker for review further violations.
  2. Pit entry/exit lanes are considered part of the racing surface for the cars on track, unless admins decide otherwise for certain track layouts. Drivers using the pits have to stay within pit entry/exit lane lines with all four wheels and are not allowed to cross over. Riding on the line will be acceptable and any penalty decision will be at the discretion of the stewards.
  3. Going off of track with all four wheels due to a mistake is considered part of racing. Leaving the track at the same corner(s) repeatedly may be deemed as gaining an advantage and a penalty may be given either by the in-game penalty system or the Stewards.
  4. Gaining a position or gaining an advantage against a competitor or gaining track position (gaining time) by leaving the track in any way is against the rules, regardless of any in-game penalty that may be handed out, and the Stewards may apply penalties because of that, unless the driver gives back the position immediately or slows down to compensate within the same lap.

5. Flag rules

  1. Yellow flags are enforced and drivers must respect the “No passing when under yellow” rule. Drivers must be cautious and prepare for slowing down to avoid any incident ahead.
  2. If the drivers ignore yellow flags, it is within the Stewards discretion to apply or not a penalty.
  3. Blue flags: they are advisory only, slow/lapped drivers do not have to pull aside, they can stay on their line.
  4. A blue-flagged driver is not allowed to defend his track position against the lapping car and he/she should stay on his/her line. Intentionally holding up or defending against a lapping car may determinate, the application of a penalty or even the disqualification of the driver by the live Stewards. Drivers about to be lapped have to behave in a predictable way without sudden changes of direction or track position.
  5. Lapped drivers are allowed to unlap themselves as long as they can pull away after passing the driver that has a lap advantage.

6. On track behaviour

  1. The driver in front has the right to choose any line at any section of the track. The driver in front loses this right when an overtaking driver brings his front wheel line up with the other drivers’ rear wheel. At this point drivers are in a “side-by-side” position and they both have to give each other at least 1 car’s width room.
  2. Defending is allowed and accepted as a reaction by the driver in front. It is not allowed to defend if there is any overlap between cars. Note that following a racing line into a corner is not considered defence (unless cars are deemed side-by-side).
  3. Both the passing driver and the driver in front are responsible for fair racing during the pass. It is the passing driver’s responsibility to choose a safe timing for the pass.
  4. Pass attempts at a turn is what causes most accidents. The preferred racing line through most corners is usually very narrow and sometimes it will be impossible for two cars to share tight corners side-by-side at full speed. For each corner, the right to the preferred racing line is decided at the turn-in point. A driver attempting to pass at corner entry has to be in a side-by-side position at the turn-in point to have a right to enter the corner side-by-side. If not, this driver must back off and give way to the driver up front.
  5. Dive-bombing should be avoided and is subject to a penalty. If the attempting driver was out of control and caused contact, or time loss to another driver, the penalties applied may be harsher than normal.
  6. Brake checking, unnecessary slowing through a corner, punting, bump-passing, cutting-off or chopping, whether there is contact or not, are not permitted and will be subject to penalty.
  7. Blocking is not allowed and subject to a penalty.
  8. Weaving to break a draft is considered blocking.
  9. Out-of-control or spinning drivers should lock their brakes to make it easier for other drivers to predict their movements. After a spin, the driver must keep the brakes pressed to make sure the car does not roll forward or back in order to not create an unpredictable situation for cars passing by.
  10. Drivers who go off track limits, if they can keep their cars under control, should slow down or wait for traffic to clear and re-join in a safe manner.

7. Incident Reviews & Penalties

  1. Official Race sessions will be reviewed by race Stewards live within the Race Director.
  2. Reviews will be conducted by a minimum of two Stewards and the Race Director. Warning/penalty decisions will be issued by the Race Director.

  5. Repeat offenders will receive a 30 second penalty with gradual severity.
  6. Stewards will exercise reasonable judgement at all times and particularly when reviewing light contacts, taps, bumps.
  7. The Stewards will note and review all incidents happened during each session.

Any incident brought to the attention of the Stewards using an incident report submitted via the post-race Protest system will be reviewed as soon as possible, but after the Stewards have completed their review of incidents noted during a race. Incidents not filed via the Protest system may not be reviewed by the Stewards.
  8. The final results may be issued only after the Stewards have reviewed all incidents and applied the corresponding penalties. The final results will include any post-race penalty applied by Race Direction.

    Car#:
    Opponent car(s)#:
    Lap#:
    Turn#:
    Sort description of the incident:………………..
    A message will be posted by an Administrator confirming the start time of the Protest window (the time that the race ended). A further message will be posted to confirm the closure of the 30-minute window. Protests not sent in this timeframe will not be accepted and examined.
  2. Protests sent with the wrong format or incomplete may be discarded by the Stewards without viewing their content.
  3. Participants misusing the Protests channel by needless chatting, flaming and calling out other drivers will be penalised or even disqualified from the event/series.

9. Warning and BWP

  1. Penalties issued by the Stewards during the official sessions, except during the Grand Final’s events, will lead to Behavioural Warning Points (BWP) that will be accumulated during the events execution:
    • Once a driver reaches 12 BWP, he/she will not be permitted to participate in the event following the event where the last penalty was issued. The points will be cancelled for the subsequent event.
    • If a driver reaches 12 points more than once during the championship. he/she will be disqualified from the series.
    • Track limits warnings and penalties, pitlane speeding penalties and disqualification issued by the game itself are not included in the BWP system and they will not result in BWP, unless the Stewards find it necessary to duplicate the warning or penalty with one applied by Race Direction to make it counts towards BWP.
    • If a driver, who would be eligible to participate in the Grand Finale event based on his/her championship points, exceeds the 12 BPW after the 4th round of the championship, he/she may not be allowed to participate in the Grand Final event, and his/her slot in the Grand Final event will be taken by the next driver in the standings.
    • Besides granting a BWP, warnings issued during the qualification will be added to the series. Violating qualifying rules twice in the series will lead to a grid penalty determined by Race Direction.
    • BWP of each driver with more than 0 will be displayed in the official final results issued by the Organiser.
  2. BWPs are assigned according to the following criteria:
    • Race DQ – 10 points
    • 30 seconds penalty – 8 points
    • 15 seconds penalty – 4 points
    • 10 seconds penalty – 2 points
  3. If a driver exceeds 3 Warnings during a single race, he/she will receive 30 seconds post-race penalty.
  4. For each race in which the driver participates without gaining additional Behaviour Warning Points, two points will be deducted from the total. Negative scores will not be taken into account.

10. Additional Rules on the Server

  1. In-game CHAT window must be enabled for all official test and event sessions in the game’s UI settings. The organiser will not accept any complaints about missed messages if sent using this chat.
