What are the entry requirements? You will need to have a licence class of C-class or above. You are free to sign up during pre-season regardless, but you will be denied entry upon the start of the season if you do not meet the requirement, in which case drivers who do meet the requirement will be given priority over you. You are also expected to be active on the forum in order to receive the latest updates. If you are completely new to the series, we will check to see if you are suitable for the league, which will be dependant on having done a sufficient amount of racing and running in the car (or a similar car) at a reasonable pace.
How do I register as part of a team? Simply state your team preferences in this thread - the name of your team and name of the driver you're teaming up with. There will be a maximum of 2 drivers per team at any one time. Drivers can be changed during the season but this will need to be authorised by the League Coordinators.
How many spaces are available? There will be a maximum of 36 spaces, with a reserve list (maximum of 10 at one time). If all of the spaces have been allocated, the sign-up thread will be closed until a seat has been vacated.
What happens if I'm on the reserve list? All drivers on the reserve list will be approached every week by the League Coordinators who will offer you a seat in place of an absent driver. Please keep active on the forums in order to receive these messages and accept any potential invites. Members that are inactive on the forums for two weeks will be removed from the reserve list.
Can I participate in a 'one off' race? We will not be accepting one-off 'wildcard' entries for drivers who wish to dip their toe in the water. It's recommended that you get to know the car in the official iRacing series before committing to the league. Once you sign up, you are expected to participate across all 12 race nights.
How is the Championship structured? The Championship consists of 12 feature/sprint style races, running every week, starting from the Friday of week 1 of the iRacing 2019 Season 2 official schedule.
For this season, there will 2 drop weeks.

More details can be found in the rules thread.
Are setups permitted? The Championship is open to setup modification.
What is the points system? Points are awarded to the top 20 finishers in the Feature Race, and the top 16 in the Sprint Race. In addition to the normal points system for finishing positions, 1 additional point is handed out for pole position (Feature Race only) and fastest lap. Additionally, 2 points will be awarded for completing the race with 0x incident points, and 1 point will be awarded for completing the race with 1x incident point.
Full details on points scoring can be found in the rules thread.
Are there any recommended files to download? If you wish to create your own team livery you can find the Formula 3 template under the "Paint" section of the iRacing website. Trading Paints is recommended to upload and show off your livery on race nights as well as making the rest of the grid look suited and booted!
Will there be any coverage of the races? We aim to have live broadcasts for all the races to take place on the official AOR YouTube channel. Donations to help cover this are welcome - read more here.
