GT-300 Rules and Regulations Empty GT-300 Rules and Regulations

Post by Ax4x Mikey J on Tue 5 Mar 2019 - 8:26

.Welcome to the Inaugural GT-300 Championship Series. This championship will be contested on Forza Motorsport 7 on X Box One and will consist of SIX rounds.
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

10.0 SAFETY CAR

Standard safety car rules in effect
Safety Car Procedures:

Safety Cars
7.6.1 There are generally no designated ‘safety car’ vehicles utilised in our championships, unless otherwise specified, 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 (also referred to as VSC).
When a Safety Car is used:
7.6.2 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 Host who makes the decision for the safety car period to be used.
7.6.3 The Safety Car may not be requested during the final TWO laps of a race.
Forming a Safety Car Period:
7.6.4 In the event of a safety car period being called, the lead car takes the role of the Safety Car/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:
7.6.5 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 sensible distance 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.
7.6.6 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.
7.6.7 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.
7.6.8 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 lead car reaches the pit lane entrance, the safety car may continue for another lap. It is each driver’s duty to ensure the safety of their fellow competitors.
7.6.9 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. 60 MPH until you cross the start line
