What are the entry requirements? You must sign up as part of a team, single driver entries will not be permitted (if you wish to post below that you are looking for a team that is allowed) - All drivers will be required to participate in lobbies on the league's server ahead of the season to show their ability, however, only in exceptional circumstances will this lead to a driver not being granted permissions to sign up to the league.
What assists are allowed? There will be no assists* allowed for this season, in an attempt to create a league with an environment as close to reality as possible.
*with the exception of auto clutch
How do I register as part of a team? Simply state your team preferences in this thread - the name of your team and name of the driver you're teaming up with. There will be a maximum of 2 drivers per team at any one time. Drivers will not be allowed to change teams unless given permission by the League Coordinators.
How many spaces are available? 40 full team driver spots are available for the season, on race days this will be limited to 30 maximum drivers on the server at once. This potentially means pre-qualifying will take place prior to official qualifying. The slowest drivers from pre-qualifying will be excluded from taking part in the official event that week until the 30 limit is reached.
Can I participate in a 'one off' race? We will not be accepting one-off 'wildcard' entries for drivers who wish to dip their toe in the water. All drivers who complete must have completed the full sign up process and then wait to be messaged by the coordinators.
Race night structure?
- Two Qualifying sessions followed by a race which is an hour long (70% distance of IRL race)
- Qualifying 1 is 12 minutes long - Top 10 progress to Q2
- Qualifying 2 is 7 minutes long - shootout for pole position
(must use same compound at the start of the race as you use in qualifying to set your fastest lap)
- Use same compounds as real life (2 compounds must be used during race)
More details can be found in the rules thread.
Are setups permitted? The Championship is open to setup modification.
What is the points system? The points system will be the same as formula one in real life with 25 points for a win, 18 for second etc.
