We all love to respect one another, whether we are racing on track or in a lobby.
What we look to see from? Is that we get all drivers to get involved in this league and stay updated constantly.
2b – Absence: If you can’t make the following race or later races, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can get a reserve in, if needs be (He will score points for the team but not for the drivers title unless he participate in more than 5 races). If you miss a few consecutive races without letting us know then servere penalties will be involved.
3 – Race Day
3a – The Lobby: The lobby will be hosted by an admin. If anyone else host then we will let all drivers know in advance. The lobby will open at 7.15, the session will start at 7:30. If you are late I will make sure we start on the bang on. If you give us a decent reason to delay the race by 5-10minutes, then you need to let us know in advance.
3b – Car Selection: It is down to the driver to be jn the right car. If you are not in thr right car then you will get the points for your drivers tally but you will give the team you drove for constructors points.
3c – Chat Room: You are all in the chat, if you leave it then it is your choice. But we will not be private messaging drivers key information, so if you leave then its your call.
3d – Race Format: All races run a short qualifying session of 18 minutes, followed by a race of 50% distance, the weather set to dynamic. Vehicle Damage will be set to simulation, this means we will have safety car and virtual safety car, also formation lap included.
3e – Race Times: All races are going to be set as official start time.
4 – Qualifying
4a – In/Out laps: When you are doing any of these then please show respect and move out of the way, you will not like if somone holds you up. Look on the mini map, every now and again.
4b – Setting a time: It is your choice whether or not to set a time as this is to plan with your strategy. But if you are in the top 10 with your fastest lap a bit like Q2 in real F1. The game will not let you change it anyway. If it comes to one-shot qualy then once again its up to you if you do not do it and what tyres you are on.
4c – Retirement: When you are retiring, please try to do it in a safe place and offthe racing line. When you retire do not destroy your car on purpose if you do this then there will be severe penalties. Any drivers crashing out on purpose will result in a DSQ.
4d – Parc Ferme: Will be on while league races are happening, which means you cannot change your car setup between qualifying and the race. Only what is recommended.
5 – Disconnection
5a – During Qualifying: Within the 1st few minute of qualifying has started if someone disconnects the lobby will be re-open, this is only happening once. If any one disconnects after 5 minutes then, we will not create a new lobby, you’ll have number of invites sent to you to rejoin.
5b – Qualifying track limits: In all honesty it do not matter cause if you corner cut the gsme will invalid that lap, so there is no need to punish even more as it is on strict. If it don’t and we see, this will add time to the end of the race.
5c – After Qualifying: If anyone disconnect then you will start from the back.
5d – Weather Settings: If a driver disconnects with the rule above the lobby will be re done with the weather what to expect for the race, if it is rain all race, then it’ll be this case, if its clear then it’ll be set to that, if number of weathers then that is what it will be set as. This is all down to the league.
5e – Lobby Collapse: If this happens it will be restarted from the beginning but still race until it has been created. But slight rule change with one-shot qualifying and the weather will be set to what us admins saw as provisional weather for the race.
