What are the entry requirements? You must sign up as part of a team, however single driver entries with a team name but no teammate will be permitted to an extent. If there are multiple teams (for example 3+) with only one driver and have been so for 2 or more races, attempts will be made by administrators to either fill the other seat, or merge teams together. (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. You may also sign up as an AOR Reserve - team reserve drivers are prohibited.
WE URGE YOU TO ATTEMPT TO SIGN UP WITH A TEAMMATE, SO MESSAGE EACH OTHER!
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?
(must use same compound at the start of the race as you use in qualifying to set your fastest lap)
- 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
- 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.
Are there any recommended files to download? All of the tracks and the car for this season are in the package attached to the server, which is all you will need for the duration of the season. You will be required to create/your own custom livery for your car or get our partners to design one for you.
However, there will be a downloads section on the new forum for you to download tracks and other files ahead of time. This is simply for your convenience.
We recommend SHQM HUD on the Steam Workshop, which provides decently detailed information on-screen.
You are also required to run SRT Anti-Cheat Software which is linked in our anti-cheat thread.
Can we create our own liveries and helmets? Yes you can, there is a livery submission thread.
