3rd Annual TORA INDY 500 May 20-21st

Post by Radiation Louis on Sat 29 Apr 2017 - 16:43

Welcome to the 3rd Annual TORA INDY 500. This race will be contested on Forza Motorsport 6 on XBOX One.

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

By registering for the race, 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:

http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/t1312-xbox-live-connectivity

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/ yellow/ red 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

5.0 RACE SIGN-IN

5.1 Sign-Ins are based on if you have attempted to qualify. It is assumed that if you qualify you intend to race. If an emergency happens please only then post "OUT" in the race thread

5.2 The series organizer reserves the right to permit or deny specific drivers after the time stated in 5.1 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, 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, 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:
http://forums.theonlineracingassociation.com/t17783-tora-indycar-series-lobby-settings

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.

7.5 Each driver will get 3 attempts on qualifying day (May 20th). If you wish to improve your time and attempt again you will forfeit any previous time recorded.

7.6 Qualifying will be held on May 20th from 10:00 AM Eastern to 2:00 PM Eastern. (running 3-4 sessions an hour perhaps more if demand is there)

[color=#ff0000]8.5 RACE RESULTS
8.5.1 Everyone who qualifies will get to race in one aspect or another, however, only the top 2 lobbies will be fighting for victory and it will be who ever completes the race distance in the least amount of time.

8.5.2 Each lobby will be capped at 16 giving us a field of 32. If one of the top 32 cannot make it everyone will be bumped up one position.

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.



10.0 SAFETY CAR

I get home from work at 1:15 PM Eastern. Does that mean I wouldn't have a chance to qualify? Just want to make sure I'm reading the rules correctly.

Yes you will seeing how there will be many sessions going on and I'm going to try and cram as many into the day as possible. if we start the last session and then 2:00 hits that session will finish as scheduled with 2 warm up laps and 4 flyers and will be the last one of the day.

Sorry to say on Saturday we cannot extend to beyond 2 as there is a TASCAR race going on that day. as for race day, this event takes 2-3 hours to run and that would make it run extremely late for a lot of the brits who have to get up early the next day for work/uni

Tunes will be allowed just as they are for Daytona later on this season. homestead was the only one that forced stock tuning because too many people were getting to aggressive with tunes causing too many spins which would have led to more yellow than there already was.
