General Information

League Setup

The Rallycross League is separated for each platform, unlikely the Rally League, and will feature a single tier on each of these platforms. In the unlikely circumstance that there are more sign-ups than we can handle, a second tier will be created.

Day/Time

Each round will take place on a saturday, starting at 7:45pm BST. The schedules for the upcoming round will be released 2 hours before the start, thus 5:45pm BST.

Rallycross Format

Season 5 will consist of 5 rounds. The first 5 will take place on the full circuits of each available location (Montalegre, Lydden Hill, Hell, Höljes and Lohéac).

Heats

In order to accomodate for the new stream every race will be raced separately from each other. The starting grid of the first heat is determined at random by a randomizer.

The second and third heat are similar to the first heat, the only difference being the way the starting grid is determined. The second heat’s starting grid will be determined by the results of the last round. And the third heat’s starting grid will be determined by the current standings of the championship. If any of the above methods is not feasible than we’ll result to random grids such as the first heat.

At the end of each heat, depending on the results, heat points will be distributed to the drivers based on their race time compared to the other drivers, with the fastest gaining the most points and the slowest gaining the least.

Allowed Assists

In this league the only assists that are allowed are Automatic Gears and Stability Control. Meaning that Traction Control, Anti-Lock Brakes and Launch Control have been disabled. These assists have been banned because they give a mechanical advantage to the car, and detract from the driver requirement in racing.

If anyone is found using these assists they’ll be immediately disqualified from the championship and removed from the league.

Rallycross Classification

Points System

Heat Points

Heat points are awarded according to each driver's time in each heat, rather than their finishing position in that specific race. For both heats 1 and 2, drivers score points for there position in the following format: 50, 45, 42, 40, 39, 38 etc. These points are added from heats one and two, and converted into 16 points for the overall winner, down to 1 point for the 16th highest placing driver, and 0 points for drivers 17th and below.

DNF/DNS

What is important in this league is aiming at completing the events. Getting a DNF because of for example having an unrecoverably car is obviously nothing to do anything about but otherwise it's important to complete the events. Either DNF / DNS is seen negatively. Enough DNS' can also result in getting removed from the leagues. You can read about this in the league rules. You must inform a coordinator if you know you will be absent from an event.

Championship Standings
  • Drivers and constructors are ranked in the standings based on how many points they've scored over the course of the season.
  • If two or more drivers or constructors are tied on points, the higher place in the standings will be awarded to the holder of most first places. If the number of first places is the same, the holder of most second places, then third places, and so on until a winner emerges.

Who To Contact

For the Rallycross Leagues we have a specific team of coordinators for each will be running the respective leagues. The coordinator team on each platform will announce the running schedule for each event of the season hours before it is due to begin, at 5:45PM BST. Throughout the event the coordinator will also announce the lobbies that will be taking place as a result of prior races, so it is important to keep in contact with the coordinator on the forums throughout each event of the season.

If you want to speak about something directly concerning the platform you're on, it may be good to contact a coordinator that is on that platform.

Example reasons to contact them could be:
  • To inform them that you're missing a race
  • To get information about your league
  • If you are unhappy about something, either with regards to a rally or on the forums
