There will be changing of cars in this series. However i would try and encourage staying in 1 car to keep a nice mix of cars. Please post up if changing car
The sign in thread will go up approximately five or six days before the race. Each competitor should sign into this thread.
If a driver is unable to race in any one week, he should sign "out" in the sign-in. At least we will know if worth racing or not.
Race 2 will feature pit stops and pit window will be decided prior to race night
All on track incidents involving 2 or more cars within the first 5 mins or so will trigger a safety car
Please note that this series is being run with cosmetic damage; although this will allow some tapping, we dont expect drivers to behave likes a public hopper !
SAFETY CAR PROCEDURE
The lead car will lead the pack around at a safe, steady speed not exceeding 60mph until the entire field is in line. Cars should maintain a safe distance to the car in front and should not engage in weaving or sudden acceleration of braking as this is likely to lead to accidents. Any drivers making a pit stop under safety car conditions must rejoin the field at the back of the pack.
When the last driver(s) have caught up with the pack, he should call it. The restart will occur ONLY after you pass start finish line. NO overtaking until you have passed the start finish please.
We will try and do without post race penalties unless there is obvious foul play such as but not limited to:
Corner cutting to gain time/place on multiple occasions
Tap to pass without giving place back
Ramming - see above
Not paying attention to lobby instructions on multiple occasions
All/any assists will be allowed other than auto brakes and STM
