PRO Endurance - Rules and Regs (PLEASE READ)

Post by F4H Lotterer on Tue 29 Apr 2014 - 8:21



TORA expects competitors who partake in its championships and meetings to behave in an appropriate and respectable manner. Insulting comments or behaviour towards fellow competitors and race stewards is unacceptable and will be dealt with severely.

TORA expects all drivers taking part in the championship to have read and understood the TORA 2013/2014 Sporting Regulations Link - TORA 2013/14 Sporting Regulations

Blocking

7.5.8 A driver may choose to protect his or her line so long as it is not considered blocking. Blocking is defined as two (2) consecutive line changes to “protect his/her line,” and in doing so, impedes the vehicle that is trying to pass with each of the two (2) consecutive movements. Drivers are encouraged to check with the Race Director for a full explanation before the start of the race. If, in the case of side-to-side contact, one of the two cars leaves the racing surface (involuntarily) then it may still be considered “a racing incident.”

Right to the Line

7.5.9 The driver in front has the right to choose any line, so long as not to be considered blocking. The driver attempting to make a pass shall have the right to the line when their front wheel is next to the driver of the other vehicle. Note: This rule may be superseded by class specific rules.

Rejoining the track

7.5.18 If all four wheels have left the track or you have become caught on sticky grass or sand you must rejoin at the nearest point compatible with safety. It is unfair and unacceptable to simply rejoin the circuit as quickly as possible without any regard for the drivers around you who have been able to retain control of their car. If this means stopping at the side of the circuit until safe to rejoin then that is what you must do, even if that means you rejoin last.

7.5.14 The track is defined by the painted lines surrounding the circuit this meaning you are to stay within these guidelines, all drivers are reminded that at least 2 wheels must be kept within the track limits (white lines, painted kerbs, edge of tarmac). Failure to adhere to these rules will result in a penalty.

7.5.15 It is prohibited for any competitor to come to a complete stop on or beside the circuit without good reason or the intention of retiring and leaving the race.

7.5.16 It is prohibited for any competitor to willfully drive their car at 60% or less of their usual race pace, either on or off the track during racing conditions.


1. DRIVERS CHAMPIONSHIP

This will be a championship fought by each driver for themselves. The total amount of points at the end of the series will determine the drivers champion.

2. TEAMS CHAMPIONSHIP

A team will be made up of up to four drivers, all driving the same car. This championship will be scored by the total points scored by the top three drivers for each race meeting, over the course of the championship.

3. PRIVATEER CHAMPIONSHIP

A privateer is a registered solo driver who will compete for the drivers championship and a privateer championship.

- Team Driver Changes
For the length of the entire series from Round 1 until the Final no team driver changes will be allowed.

- Substitute Drivers
For the length of the entire series from Round 1 until the Final no substitute drivers will be allowed.

- Dropped Round
For the length of the entire series you may drop one round or enter all and have your lowest scoring round dropped.

Race Meeting
We ask that all competitors are on Xbox Live 15 minutes prior to the start of the race meeting, make sure their NAT settings are setup correct, and appearing online to everyone. Any competitor who does not follow these runs a very high risk of not receiving an invite, or being able to compete.

Each competitor must also post "IN" in the relevant race meeting thread on the TORA forums, until one hour before the race meeting at the very latest. Anyone who doesn't post “IN” in this time frame will not compete.


RACE

Race will begin in a rolling start in order of qualifying positions .

7.4.4 The grid will start under rolling start, competitors will be instructed to drive in single file at speeds that do not exceed 100 MPH (160 KPH), Race control reserves right to lower maximum speed if needed.
7.4.5 Upon on reaching a predetermined point on circuit drivers will be instructed to stay in single file at speeds that do not exceed 60 MPH (96KPH)
7.4.6 The driver in pole position will ask if the last place driver is lined up in formation and the lead drivers will accelerate after instructing “Green Green Green”, race conditions will begin upon “Green Green Green!” command.
Pace Car - Driver
7.4.7 The Pace Car Driver is responsible for the safe operation of the Pace Car at the direction of Control. The Pace Car Driver must take steps to ensure that the Pace Car is utilized correctly as per race director or Lobby Host instructions.


Settings
- Collisions during all races will be on, and set with Simulation Damage. the ABS and STM will be forced off, CLUTCH will be forced on but other assists will be allowed , Steering will be a choice between "simulation" & "normal" and open choice on racing line.

The race will be roughly 60 to 90 mins in length, denoted by a set number of laps. Racing conditions will end at the chequered flag, racing to end the lobby race session.

Mandatory Pit Stops

Pitstops
7.5.11 Drivers will be instructed on pitstop race conditions by Race Control but must make sure they are familiar with the specific championship series rules

There will be mandatory one pit-stop required during all races in this season. Additional pit-stops to repair damage are allowed as required.

Pit Stops must not take place within the first two laps nor the final two laps of a race session.

Safety Cars
7.8.1 There are no designated ‘safety car’ vehicles utilised in our championships, due to the limited nature of online race lobbies. However TORA does operate general safety car regulations which provide a similar outcome, with the lead vehicle acting as a safety car in the lobby to slow the cars to a safe speed whilst any obstruction is cleared from the circuit and allowing affected competitors to repair any damage and catch up with the rest of the field.
When a Safety Car is used

7.8.2 The Safety Car will only be deployed if an incident or incidents occur between three or more competitors that severely impairs both competitors race. Only a driver involved in the incident may request the safety car, and make the request to the Lobby Captain who makes the decision for the safety car period to be used.
7.8.3 The Safety Car may not be requested during the final two laps of a race.
Forming a Safety Car Period
7.8.4 In the event of a safety car period being called, the lead car takes the role of the Safety Car or Pace Car. The Safety Car must not exceed 80mph (unless otherwise stated) and the pack must form in current race position in single file.
Conduct During a Safety Car Period
7.8.5 Drivers involved in the incident should form at the back of the pack, in order of relative position before the incident. Competitors must keep a distance of no less than 80ft (25m) during the Safety Car Period. Brake testing during the Safety Car period will not be tolerated and will lead to penalties, either race meeting points or championship points.
7.8.6 Warming of tyres is permitted but must be undertaken in a safe manner with due consideration given to other competitors both in front and behind.
7.8.7 Competitors who leave the track by their own volition during the Safety Car period may be passed by the rest of the pack and the competitor will form at the back of the field.
7.8.8 Drivers not involved in the incident may pit during a Safety Car Period, but will resume the race at the back of the field. If the grid has not formed by the time the pole sitter reaches the pit lane entrance, the safety car may continue for another lap. It is YOUR duty to ensure the safety of your fellow competitors.
7.8.9 The safety car will be released and racing conditions will resume at the start/finish line for the event once all competitors have rejoined the back of the pack in the correct order. Racing conditions will begin once all drivers are in position in single file confirmed by the last driver. Once confirmed the lead driver will shout “Green green green!” and drivers will be allowed to resume racing conditions straight away.

Race Restarts
7.4.8 If half the field is taken out on the first racing lap and all cars are severely damaged then the lobby host may call for a red flag and the race is restarted fully i.e. from the lobby



must read new qualifying procedure

1.For the F4H Pro Endurance Championship we will be trying a new qualifying procedure this will put your qualifying time entirely in your hands , for the first time we will be allowing drivers to qualify themselves with no ruling on what assists are used so if you feel like using the auto brake you can but do take note that on race days ABS and STM will be forced off and the CLUTCH will be enforced.

2.To qualify for each race you will have a set five day period to post your lap time in the relevant thread , as the races will be held on Saturday evenings you will have from Monday to Friday to post your times.

3.Posting your times , this is the important part as just writing your time is not acceptable you must provide a image/screen shot of your lap time showing the time if you are doing this from the in game screen you must change your view to in car to show the track ,car used and the car PI , this can be taken from the leaderboard or if not a personal best then image can be taken from the end of session screen once you are happy with your time.

4.Once posted your time becomes official and can not be updated so one make sure you are happy with your time and two please do not edit your posts as they will be unclassified and will result in you starting at the back of the grid.

5,Non posting of times will be classed as a DNQ and you will start at the back of the lobby , if you do not have or wish to post your lap time to the forum you may qualify in a lobby with either a TORA or F4H rep whom will post the time for you.
