TORA TASCAR Season 6 - Rules and Regulations

Post by JGROVES1996 on Mon 12 Dec 2016 - 22:27



Welcome to TORA TASCAR Season 6. This championship will be contested on Forza Motorsport 6 on the XBOX ONE and will consist of 13 rounds.

Registration for the championship will open at 21:00BST / 16:00 EST on Thursday, January 12th 2017. The first round takes place at the same time on Saturday, February 11th, with the 'Daytona Duels' qualifying event taking place on Sunday, February 5th. See the series calendar for more information: http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/t17721-tora-tascar-season-6-calendar

Before you decide to enter the series, please take the time to read the rules & regulations very carefully.

By registering for the series, you agree to the rules and regulations as written in this thread. TORA reserves the right to alter the rules & regulations as necessary, for the purpose of fairness and clarity in the competition.


1.0 GENERAL RACING RULES AND DRIVING ETIQUETTE

1.1 Motor racing, as defined by TORA, is a non contact sport. It is understandable that on occasion some contact may occur as a consequence of incidents caused by either party; for instance "lag". At TORA lag is defined as sudden high internet latency or ping causing visual inconsistencies between players.

1.2 Competitors with lag issues will not be penalized, but will be asked to improve their connection for future participation in TORA’s events. If the issue is persistently hindering other competitor’s experiences, or you cannot join lobbies (see rule 14.0), please perform a speed test on your connection via http://www.speedtest.net/. Once you have completed this, see the connection section via this link:

1.3 TORA expects every competitor who partakes in our championships to behave in an appropriate and respectable manner. Insulting comments or behaviour towards fellow competitors, race stewards, lobby hosts and staff is unacceptable and will be dealt with severely by TORA Staff. Respectable on-track etiquette is expected of all competitors. This includes on-track battles, track limits, dirty driving etc.

1.4 The track limits are determined by the solid white lines either side of the track, or for lack thereof, the edge of the tarmac (or other racing surface). At all times, two wheels must remain on this part of the circuit, unless of an occurrence where it is near to impossible to keep two wheels on the track, such as avoiding a collision. During a race meeting, each time the track limits are not adhered to, a warning will be given. Each driver are allowed five warnings of all four wheels leaving the track via the inside of a corner, at any part of the circuit. If a sixth and subsequent "corner cutting" occurrence happens within a race meeting, then that driver will lose a position for each corner cut. Again, if a corner is cut to avoid a collision, this would not be given a warning.

1.5 All TORA members must read and follow the TORA Sporting Regulations. Note that and specific rules defined in these Rules & Regulations will take precedence over rules outlined in the Sporting Regulations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Z61lkYkBXCFr9-dGRIO0o6RJgdqIcjWOAFzdjPGJhbw/pub


2.0 CHAMPIONSHIPS

2.1 DRIVERS CHAMPIONSHIP


This will be a championship fought by each driver for themselves. The points at the end of this series will be their final points total and will result in their position in the standings at the end of the series. There is ONE dropped round for this championship.


2.2 TEAMS CHAMPIONSHIP

This will be a championship fought by teams of three drivers. The points at the end of this series will be their final points total and will result in their position in the standings at the end of the series.

5.0 RACE SIGN-IN

5.1 All drivers who wish to race in each meeting must Sign-In using the relevant Sign-In thread, as found in the championship's forum section. Race Meetings start at 5pm EDT (10pm BST), so please be sure to be online at least 20 minutes early for lobby invites

5.2 Sign-Ins close 120min (2 Hours) before the meeting starts. Drivers will not be permitted to race in that meeting if they attempt to Sign-In after this time.

5.3 The series organiser reserves the right to permit or deny specific drivers after the time stated in 5.2 depending on circumstances.


6.0 HOSTING AND MARSHALS

6.1 The race may be split into multiple lobbies, named A-Z, depending on the amount of drivers who have signed-in. Each lobby will be hosted by chosen members of the Marshals, Community Team or Staff.

6.2 Marshals who have Signed-In to the race may be expected to host a lobby if no other hosts are available.

6.3 For each lobby, a specific Marshal, Community Team or Staff member will be given "Lobby Marshal" status, whether or not they are hosting the lobby (if none of the aforementioned members are available, the lobby host will be given the status). They will be responsible for collecting times, race positions, reading the start grid and rules, and deciding whether or not a race restart is required.

6.4 The lobby settings must be abided by, and can be found here:

7.0 PRACTICE & QUALIFYING RULES

7.1 The fastest clean lap time from a driver, as denoted by the game, will be recorded for qualification.

7.2 Qualifying sessions will consist of 4 laps total; 1 warm-up lap, 2 timed laps, 1 cool-down lap.

7.3 All drivers must stop on the first corner of the circuit on the cool-down lap for the Lobby Marshal or host to record the times.

7.4 The Lobby Marshal will input the times into the relevant document, or pass on the information to someone who can.


8.0 RACE RULES

8.1 Please check the season calendar for track confirmation.

8.2 The start of the race will be a ROLLING start.

8.3 ROLLING START PROCEDURE: Note: This has changed from last season, please read amended procedure carefully
8.3.1 Towards the end of the warm up lap or the final lap under caution, the lobby host will request drivers to form up in 2x2 formation. EXTREME CARE MUST BE TAKEN.
8.3.2 The driver in last place must confirm to lobby host once all cars are in position and ready to start.
8.3.3 The rolling grid will continue to drive at the caution speed until each row reaches the start/finish line.
8.3.4 When each row of the field reaches the start/finish line, they may begin to race.
8.3.5 Drivers can only race once they have reached the start/finish line and not before.
8.3.6 If the host deems the start unfair to the majority of the field, the race may be restarted.

8.4 WARM UP LAP PROCEDURE:
8.4.1 Drivers are called off the grid by lobby host in correct grid order.
8.4.2 Drivers proceed around the circuit in single file. Tyre warming is permitted but brake testing is NOT.


9.0 PIT STOPS

9.1 There are no mandatory pit stops during the race, but pitting will be necessary.

9.2 Drivers are permitted to pit at their own accord to refuel and change tyres, or if they have damage to their car or wish to retire.

9.3 For TASCAR, oval races especially, the pits will be closed immediately following a caution. The lobby host will advise as to when the pits are open once the field is back up together.


10.0 SAFETY CAR

Standard safety car rules in effect please refer to sporting regulation handbook

Addition for TASCAR: It is common at oval races, especially the likes of Daytona, for massive wrecks to occur. It has also been known for these wrecks to carry on taking place after the caution call. If you are wrecked after the caution call you are STILL not able to regain your previous position because you were involved in the wreck. This does not extend to lag issues during the caution, if lag causes a collision which causes you to lose position DURING a caution, you may regain your position.


11.0 STEWARD INQUIRIES

Standard SI rules in force please refer to sporting regulation handbook


12.0 SERIES POINTS

This will be the points system for the championship and will be the same in the overall, privateers and teams standings.

1st gets 150pts, 2nd gets 149pts, and each place drops by 1pt each.


13.0 CHAMPIONSHIP CALENDAR

The championship will race on the dates as listed in the calendar thread, linked here:
http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/t17721-tora-tascar-season-6-calendar#391443


14.0 ENTERING THE LOBBY

14.1 The host or Lobby Marshal will invite each driver to the lobby they will be Qualifying or Racing in.
14.2 They will send each driver one invite to the lobby. If the driver cannot join, the host or Lobby Marshal will send a maximum of two extra invites before the meeting is due to start.
14.3 If the driver cannot join the Qualifying session in time, they will start at the back of the grid in the race.
14.4 If the driver cannot join the race session, they will score 0 points for that race.


15.0 POSTPONED MEETINGS

Sometimes a meeting may have to be postponed. The meeting may be cancelled or pushed back on the calendar. The entirety of this rule is at the discretion of the series organiser.
