LEAGUE STRUCTURE:

Amount of leagues:

Each platform runs a set amount of leagues, depending on the amount of drivers signing up at the start of the season. All tiers will be running the Dallara DW12 (IndyCar).

League setup:
In the event of multiple leagues on one platform, the leagues will be tiered, with the aim to have the faster drivers in the higher league(s) and the slower drivers in the lower league(s). In this case, drivers will be assigned to a league based on a specified time trial event. If we only get enough drivers for one league, spots will be assigned in the order the drivers signed up in.

League format:
The season will feature 10 race events, each consisting of one, 45 minute long race.

Race night format:
- 20:00 - Qualifying - 15 minutes
- 20:10 - Warmup - 5 minutes
- 20:15 - Race - (Approx. 45 minutes)

Note: The specified times are approximates and may fluctuate slightly as the event progresses, depending on how smoothly things go.

LIVERY & TEAM SELECTION:

Liveries:

A selection of 8 pre-determined liveries will be available for the drivers to choose from.

At the start of the season, after the leagues and driver placements have been announced, a thread will be opened within each league's subforum where livery selection will take place.

The selection of liveries will be on a 'first come, first served' basis, with drivers who competed in season 1 having priority.

Teams:

Each livery can be selected by a maximum of 2 drivers. Drivers who select the same livery will be classed as teammates, and score points together for the Team Championship.

After the livery selection process has concluded, drivers are obliged to stick to their chosen team/livery for the full season.

WHO TO CONTACT:

For league related enquiries or questions, your first point of contact should be a staff member within the league you are assigned to - preferably the League Coordinator. Upon joining a league, it will be made clear who your League Coordinator is.

Our Coordinators and Moderators are expected to remain completely unbiased, and as long as you address the situation sensibly and maturely they will be happy to discuss any issues no matter who it is with.
