Hey guys,

The time has finally come for our first round of Formula league races on Project CARS! Please read this message before taking to the track for the first race :)

A lot of time and effort has been put in from all of the admins, moderators and coordinators to give you guys the best possible platform to experience league racing, and we hope you've been pleased with what you've seen so far (I assume you wouldn't have signed up otherwise haha).

However, the ball is now in your court! When it comes down to it, the leagues are obviously about the racing, and it's up to each and every one of you - as drivers - to create a clean and enjoyable atmosphere on track. We've done what we can to make the leagues competitive (which is obviously quite tricky for a first season, with varying levels of skill between the drivers who have signed up and only TT times to base the placements on), but we can't control what each individual driver does on track, so we hope you guys are motivated to do your part to ensure a good season. Remember, the league is only ever as good as the drivers in it!

As much as we all want to perform well and race fast, it's equally important to race cleanly and fairly - which is what AOR is all about. I'm sure nobody here would like to get caught up in crashes, or see other drivers unfairly gain time by excessively abusing track limits, so it's up to you to make sure you don't do that yourself! At the same time it's important to remember that mistakes can happen, so don't be too early to judge if you end up getting caught up in something.

It's also important to remember that this is the first season on a brand new game, meaning it's going to be a new experience for everyone involved, both for us organisers & coordinators and for the drivers - so this season will be a learning process in many ways. Also remember that the first season is only 6 weeks long, after which we'll look at every part of the league structure again - seeing what worked and what didn't - and make any changes if necessary for season 2.

If you're in any way unsure about what our racing standards are, please re-read our Racing Rules before you head out on track.

Some reminders:

● Before the first race, please make sure to add your league's coordinator and lobby host to your friends list (these should be specified in your league's "main thread").

● Make sure you have picked your car livery (which in turn determines your team) - if you haven't done this already, please head to the selection thread which can be found within your league's subforum.

● Obviously it's understandable that some of you may be quite busy these days with "real life stuff", limiting your practice time. However it's preferred that you've at least done a few laps of practice before heading into the official session, so that you don't go in blind and as a potential danger to other drivers.

● We should all of course be trying our best to race cleanly, and a few taps and scrapes here and there is to be expected, however if any major incidents do happen, the stewards panel is there to use if needed.

● Please remember the rule about saving your replay after the race, and store it on your system for at least a week. This is so that it will be possible for the stewards to get footage/evidence of any incidents that may take place.

With that said, I wish you all good luck for tonight's race, and hope you have an enjoyable season ahead! :)

Cheers,
Fisi
