    1) Calendar

    here is the calendar - we chose these tracks as it offered wide tracks, and a mix of high and low speed corners, we hope you all agree -
    the dates are spread far apart as they would be in real life, this not only gives people plenty of notice, but also provides a chance
    to introduce smaller series into the mix.

    ***CALENDAR STARTS***
    29th - 31st May - Silverstone
    5th - 7th June - Monza
    3rd - 5th July - Le Mans

    3) Sign Up

    Sign up will take place from:18th May - 26th May

    All members who wish to join please place a comment in the discussion page, and state which classes you would be interested in joining, we suggest you pick MORE than 1
    class, in case you do not make it into your first choice. Name the classes you wish to join IN ORDER,
    if you do not place your prefered choice as in front of the other classes, then you will have less chance getting into that class.

    Example: OverTheLine - "i am signing up for WEC please - classes - 1)LMP1 , 2)GT3 , 3)GT4"

    As seen above "overTheLine" has place LMP1 as his first class,
    therefore the organisers know he should be entered into the LMP1 raffle before being entered into the GT3 Raffle.
    Simples

    Raffles will take place after sign up is closed
    a Tally chart will be created, and the drivers picked at random - one this is complete, ensure you know your class prior to entering
    the championship - once you know the class, pick a veh make and model/skin type, - please ensure you keep this skin throughout the
    championship

    we would prefer you to pick different types of cars. no one wants to see their class full of the same car for example.

    Slots Available
    LMP 1 = 6 slots available
    LMP 2 = 6 slots available
    GT3 = 10 slots available
    GT4 = 10 slot available

    One you know what your driving, please inform us to we can create a Table for the points system

    We are aware that we have more than enough people to make 2 grids - If we have more than than 60 people sign up, then a second championship will be created.
    If this should happen, friday and saturday practice shall remain the same however come race Sunday, there will be two different sessions for the race. these will be split according to different skill levels -
    the more experienced players will be in "LOBBY 1" - hosted by Rirdeg, and the second less experienced players in "LOBBY 2" hosted by samuel


    Sign up - Gentlemen Drivers

    We understand that not everyone can be there for every race in the championship, for this reason we have allowed for a Gentlemen Drivers List, they are reserve drivers. who can put their names forward to "fill in for you" should you not be able to make it to the race itself.

    *NOTE* - we cannot guarantee that a driver will fill your slot. they are subject to availability. With this in mind, the more races you can attend, the better.

    How does this work?

    you can register as what is called a "Gentlemen driver", in essence, should one of the main competitors is unable to enter the next race for whatever reason, you can put your name forward to fill in their seat.

    you would be racing on their behalf, meaning you would take their vehicle and their car skin to the track, all the points you win will go towards their Championship.

    Therefore you do not really enter the championship itself, but simply join the race - think of it as a reserve driver (when the other calls in sick)

    Registration will open and close throughout the championship, comments will be deleted after each race, and registration will then re-open for the next race weekend.

    To register as a Gentlemen driver - comment in the relevant discussion when it opens

    Example - OverTheLine -
    "I would like to apply as a reserve driver - i can fill in for any absent GT3 or GT4 drivers for this weeks race"


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    4) Point System

    After each race we will take a screenshot of the race results - and add them to the timetable, a discussion will then be created and updated as the season progresses. results will be done per class only starting from LMP1 down to GT4.

    If there is more than 1 championship running, 2 discussions will be created, ensure you know which one you're in. the point system is below for each race, le man is double points due to it being so prestigious.


    (All Races) (le-Man only)
    1st: 25 points 50 points
    2nd: 18 points 36 points
    3rd: 15 points 30 points
    4th: 12 points 24 points
    5th: 10 points 20 points
    6th: 8 points 16 points
    7th: 6 points 12 points
    8th: 4 points 8 points
    9th: 2 points 4 points
    10th: 1 point 2 points

    5) Rules and Penalties


    In order to ensure a fun, fair and competitive environment for all our players we feel that it is important that we lay out some rules to ensure that no-one is ever disadvantaged.

    By joining our organised events you agree to the rules set out below.

    -No car to car contact with the intent of causing damage to the other drivers car or race.

    -Do not deliberately cut the track, track limits are the curbs and white lines. Let’s try to keep at least 2 wheels within these boundaries at all times.

    -Do not leave a vehicle parked on or close to the track

    -Absolutely no blocking, blocking is not defending. We run the generally accepted rule of which, you’re allowed one change of line in the braking zone provided that the car behind hasn’t already started an overtake attempt.

    -Please respect blue flags, if leaders are lapping you don’t try to race them. The overtaking car must wait behind the car ahead until they can overtake cleanly without risk.

    -When rejoining the track, do so only when it is safe and you are not going to make another driver have to take avoiding action. Any incident that is caused by rejoining the track in an unsafe manner will be penalised heavily.


    We as organisers can’t monitor everyone's race at all times. If you are involved in an incident or see an incident we do need you to report it to us. This is IMPORTANT, please save your replay after the race. We can’t change between cars during a Project CARS replay so we need to see the incident from your point of view. If a report doesn’t contain the replay file and the time at which the incident occurred there will be no penalty.


    Location of saved replays
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\xxxxxxx\234630\local\project cars\media


    Penalties.
    Again PCARS admin side leaves a lot to be desired. We’re limited in what we can and can’t do. What we can do are points penalties and warnings.

    Minor rule infringement - 2 championship point penalty.
    This will be for something small, ignoring blue flags or constantly exceeding track limits.

    Medium rule infringement - 5 Championship point penalty.
    This penalty is applied to more serious violations of the rules. Blocking without causing an accident, rejoining the track in an unsafe manner that doesn’t cause an accident.

    Major rule infringement - 15 Championship point penalty + 1 Warning
    This penalty will usually be applied for causing an avoidable collision with another driver.
    The following incidents will likely receive this penalty.
    Blocking which leads to an accident. Rejoining in an unsafe manner which leads to an accident. Leaving a vehicle parked on or near the track.

    If a driver receives a 3rd warning, they also receive a one race ban. They are not permitted to race at the next championship event and are therefore unable to score championship points. If after serving the ban the driver is still receiving penalties his membership to the championship will be reviewed by the admins.


    Trolling - Instant ban - Trolling is an action that is deliberately taken with the intent to cause damage or ruin someone's race. I have played Iracing for a long time, and i have seen people deliberately take people out on the next corner because they had not had a clean overtake. Regardless of what happens on the track...you must keep your cool. Taking them off on purpose due to their aggressive move will only get you an instant ban. As above file the report, and they will be dealt with accordingly. The same goes for parking up stationary on the racing line, this will instantly be a auto ban with no warnings, if you have a technical issue, move your vehicle to the side of the road as best as possible. There are no excuses.


    Admins hold the right to give a permanent ban to any driver who shows vagrant disregard for our rules and the enjoyment of the other competitors.


    Submitting an incident report.
    You can submit an incident report to any of our admins, be that OverTheLine, Rirdeg or samuel.aaron.
    It must contain the following for it to be reviewed.

    The names of the drivers involved
    A written account of what occurred
    A link to the replay file from the race
    The time at which the incident occurs within the replay.

    This information will be reviewed by our admins who will judge if a penalty needs to be applied and if so what severity.



    Once again the rules laid out above are simply to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable experience in our events and we’re sure that all of our members will be able to race within these rules. If you have any questions regarding the rules and/or penalties please contact one of our admins and they will be able to help.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    6) Assists

    Assists for this championship are restricted to in car Abilities only. the only ones that are allowed are ABS, Stability Control, and Traction Control, all other assists are not allowed to be run

    This rules applies to all sessions. you may think this is unfair, however we believe practice makes perfect. if you learnt to handle the car without any in game assists (steering etc) then you will thank us when you have learnt to go faster without them even enabled. get practicing

    ---------------------------------------


    We hope to see you there, and let the racing begin!
