STEWARDING

The event will rely heavily on iRacing's inbuilt automated stewarding system however, as this is Motorsport UK's first community event we will have a number of stewards on hand to review incidents throughout the event.

To have an incident reviewed, you must submit any protests through the Google Form located here and the stewards will review it and confirm to you the outcome.

PLEASE NOTE: That as a team you will have a maximum of 3 protests available to you throughout the race.

We will only look to penalise anyone who's driving has resulted in a car being 'meatballed' by deliberately crashing, aggressive or disrespectful driving. If someone brakes to late and knocks you off the in-game iRacing system will be used as this is a racing incident. Please choose your protests wisely
