All races will following this time schedule:
Free Practice 15 minutes, Qualifying 30 minutes and the Race 60 minutes
Each session will start at 19.30 (UTC+2). The race server will start at that time and can be found by looking for it in the ACC server list. You can find the server password on the races overview page.
Pitstop: A pitstop is mandatory, refuelling is mandatory but tyre changes are not. There is no pit window.
Weather: Races will either use fixed weather or variable weather. The practice server will be configured with the same weather that applies for the race weekend.
Balance of Power: After each race the top three finishers will get a time penalty added to their BoP balance. The BoP balance is capped at +30 seconds and can never be lower than 0. Penalty time will be added or removed according to this list:
1st: +15 seconds
2nd & 3rd: +10 seconds
4th & 5th: + 5 seconds
6th: 0 seconds
7th & 8th: -5 seconds
9th & 10th: -10 seconds
11th and lower: -15 seconds
The current driver BoP balance will be added as a time penalty for the next race the driver participates in, this penalty needs to be served at the first pitstop during that race.
The BoP balance does not reset after a time penalty is served in a race, it persists throughout the championship.
Driver Tiers: We use Platinum (only used for last seasons championship winner), Gold, Silver and Bronze tiers. We use these tiers as a measure of the drivers skill level. If you haven't raced with us before you will initially end up in the Bronze tier. After your first race finish we'll assign you a tier based on your performance in that race. At the end of the season we'll also provide an overview of all the tiers and driver rankings within them.
Custom Liveries: These are allowed. Get creative! We will share a Google Drive link in our Discord for livery uploads.
Car Choice: Once the season has started, you cannot change your car selection and / or start number so choose wisely.
Live commentary: Will be brought to the viewer with live commentary!
Stewarding: All cars and drivers will be reviewed after the race by our steward team. Penalties will be handed out via a weekly steward meeting. Our aim is to improve the quality of the racing and we've seen great improvements since we implemented this system. An overview of our rules can be found here
Withdrawals: When you can't attend a race please use the withdrawal function for that race. 3 withdrawals are allowed in a season. If you don't use the withdrawal option, you will get 5 penalty points. At 10 penalty points you will be automatically disqualified from the championship.
Drop Score: There will be 3 Drop Scores in a season. This means your 3 worsts results will not count for the championship standings.

Race calendar changes: In light of yesterdays news (14-6-22) by Kunos that the new America track pack DLC will be released on the 30th of June, we've decided that we are going to replace 3 tracks of our calendar to give everyone the opportunity to race the new tracks. Once the new tracks are live on SimGrid we will make the following changes:
- Imola will be replaced by Watkins Glen
- Zolder will be replaced by Circuit of the Americas
