Each round will consist of two 4 lap heats, two 6 lap semi finals (two races made up of the 12 highest scorers from the heat stage), and one 6 lap final (made up of the top 3 finishers from each semi final).
  • Day/time: Each event will take place on a Tuesday from 8PM BST, and a schedule of the plans for the event will be announced by the league coordinator by 6PM BST according to the amount of participants for each event.

Allowed Assists

Auto Gears and Stability Control are the only assists that have been allowed for this season, 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.

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
Semi Final Points - 6 points are awarded for the winner of each semi final, and with 1 point intervals down to 6th place in each semi final, scoring 1 point.
Final Points - The same points system is used as in the semi final, however, the winner receives a bonus 2 points, meaning that 8 points are on offer to the eventual winner in the final.

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 6PM 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

RallyCross Coordinators:

PC
@frankodrose

PS4
@DemoN F1

XB1
@EP3 Murphy
@TheIceberg

If you generally want something via a forum post, you can tag us all using @DiRT Coordinator, this is the easiest and fastest way to get in touch with us.
