Championship Conduct:
It should go without saying that you should behave in exactly the same way as you would do in an Official iRacing session - therefore, your conduct will still be in line with the iRacing Sporting Code and Regulations (members can find the code here). Failure to do so may result in expulsion from the league.

Additional note - blue flags:
The rules concerning blue flags will be slightly different to how they are in the official series. Blue flags will be a mandatory rule that must be followed. Once shown a blue flag, the driver in question must be ready to let the faster car behind past. Once the car following gets within 0.5 seconds of the blue flagged car ahead, the car with blue flags must allow the car behind past safely at the earliest opportunity, without blocking them.

Championship Scoring:
Everybody will be participating in the Drivers Championship, with the driver with the most points being declared the Champion.


Drivers can also team up and take part in the Team Championship. If a driver scores points then this will be added on to their team's score. The team with the highest points is the Teams Champion.

There are two drop weeks permitted. Each driver's two worst scores will be dropped in both standings at the end of the season.

Drivers that finish within 90% of the race distance will be classified and eligible to score full Championship points. Drivers that are classified within 75% race distance are eligible to score half points.

The points system:
1st - 32 pts
2nd - 28 pts
3rd - 25 pts
4th - 22 pts
5th - 20 pts
6th - 18 pts
7th - 16 pts
8th - 14 pts
9th - 12 pts
10th - 11 pts
11th - 10 pts
12th - 9 pts
13th - 8 pts
14th - 7 pts
15th - 6 pts
16th - 5 pts
17th - 4 pts
18th - 3 pts
19th - 2 pts
20th - 1 pt
21st-30th - 0 pts

*One bonus point for pole position
**One bonus point for fastest lap
***Drivers will earn one bonus point for classifying in the results with 0x incidents

Team Rules:
Upon registering, drivers can elect to race as part of a team or run as a 'Privateer' entry. This must be specified as part of their registration. Teams that register with only one driver are still eligible to score points in the Team Standings.

There can only be a maximum of two drivers per team entry at any one time. Reserve drivers are permitted to run in a team providing they are one of the two nominated drivers. If a team has changed their driver line-up then they must inform the iRacing Coordinators.

In the event of more than two drivers wishing to represent a team, drivers are encouraged to form 'B' or second teams if they wish to score points in the Team Standings.

Race Structure:
Race sessions will be based on the following format this season:
- 70 minute practice beginning from 19:30 BST/GMT+1
- 4 lap/15 minute solo qualifying beginning from 20:40 BST/GMT+1
- Approximately 50-70 minute race (total of laps depending) beginning from 20:55 approx BST/GMT+1

Race distances are exactly double that of the official races. Please refer to the calendar for more information.

Weather setting will be replicated based on what is used in the official series, which is currently set at dynamic/random weather. Starting track state will be automatically generated, which usually ends up as Moderately Low Usage. Please refer to the relevant race discussion thread for more information.

There will be one mandatory pitstop for fuel (tyres are optional). The max fuel % setting will be 60% but may be subject to change in order to meet the necessary requirements.

There will be an incident restriction - if you reach 17 incidents then you will be automatically disqualified.

Causing a deliberate collision (and therefore ruining a potential 0x incident score for any driver involved) after the race is strictly prohibited and can be taken to the Stewards, with punishments ranging from time penalties to disqualifications for blatant offences.

Absences, Quitting & the Blacklist:
You should sign up to the league with the intention of participating in every single race. However, circumstances may prevent you from making some races, in which case it's very important to follow the following procedure:

If you are unable to attend a race, you have to give notice for your absence before the event session starts (Friday 19:30 GMT). This is done by informing a member of the iRacing Team of your situation, either by sending them a message or by posting in the official race thread. It's your responsibility to make sure they receive your message.

Drivers who no-show without informing the coordinator, or without giving a proper reason, will be given a strike. Three uninformed no-shows, whether they are consecutive or not, will result in being blacklisted.

If you have to pull out of the league, you must let the iRacing Team know. If you leave by simply not showing up for the races, you will be placed on the blacklist and not be allowed back into the Championship in the future.

If you are removed from the league, you will be placed on the blacklist. You could also be placed on the blacklist for leaving the league without notice or without a proper reason. Drivers who are placed on the blacklist are generally not allowed back into the Championship, except in exceptional circumstances.

In some cases, drivers may be given a second chance if the admins deem there is a reason to believe the driver has changed for the better. However, this will usually come with stricter conditions, and getting removed for a second time will mean permanent exclusion from the leagues, no exceptions.

Top Tips!:
If you are involved in an on-track incident, don't overreact. It may be frustrating, but you need to stay calm and get on with it. Losing out due to another driver's mistake or recklessness is no excuse for retaliation or acting against the rules. If another driver does something you feel is against the rules, report it to the Stewards after the race rather than argue about it over the microphone.

Respect your fellow drivers! Keep a friendly atmosphere in the lobby and treat your colleagues as equals, regardless of them being quicker or slower than you.

If you have any questions then please direct them to the iRacing Team!

Stewards Enquiries:
Drivers can call for an investigation into an incident if they feel another driver has broken the racing etiquette rules. This can range from causing a collision to over-aggressive driving.

It is important for those creating an investigation to give as much detail as possible - what lap did the incident take place? Who were the drivers involved etc?

Stewards enquiries can be made here, and must be posted within 24 hours of the race having taken place.

Stewards panel incidents:

If deemed appropriate, drivers may be awarded penalties as a result of their actions. Potential stewards penalties include; a warning or penalty points being awarded to the driver, a time penalty being applied to the driver's race time, a qualifying ban for the following race (usually applied if a time penalty cannot be awarded), a disqualification from the race, or in rare cases a temporary or permanent ban from the Championship - depending on the severity of the driver's indiscretion.

Penalty Points:

In the event of an offending driver retiring from a race that they have caused an incident at, and a higher punishment is deemed unsuitable, penalty points can be awarded.

Multiple penalty points can be awarded at one time depending on the severity of the incident, as determined by the stewards.

If a driver collects 3 penalty points then a penalty deemed appropriate by the stewards will be applied. This will be conducted privately with the driver in question.

A driver's penalty points will expire after the driver has participated in 10 races from the date that the points were awarded.
