SIGNUP

All drivers must read and accept the TSRC Racing Rules.

To take part you must join TSRC discord so that you can see any league updates, and anyone who has not raced with us before must take part in the evaluation round.  Anyone not following these directions will be removed from the league.

30 full places are available but if these are full please register as a reserve - there are usually a few reserve places available each week so you will probably get to race most weeks.

If you are not able to register please check that you have added your PSN name in your SimGrid Profile, and that you are following 'The Sim Racing Collective'.

INCIDENT REPORTING

Because full race replays are not available to the host you are responsible for providing video evidence of any incidents that you are involved in. All drivers are asked to save the video of their race using the Share Button at the end of the race.  Other drivers' videos may be used to see different angles of incidents, so please try to save if anything happened in front of you, even if you weren't involved.

(To increase video clip size, go to System Settings on PS Homepage > Sharing and Broadcasts > Video Clip Settings > Length of Video Clip > Select 60 Mins.)

Ideally you should also map a button to save a replay in game, and use this after any incidents.  This will save the last few minutes of action and allow you to provide a video of different camera angles if required.

To report an incident send a private message to the league admin on discord within 24 hours, and share your video clip (e.g. on youtube) with a note of the timestamp of the incident.  If sharing a short clip please include at least 10 seconds before and after the incident.

WITHDRAWING FROM A ROUND

It is important to notify us if you cannot attend a race so that a reserve can take your place. If you cannot attend a race you can simply click the "WITHDRAW" button in the Races page of the championship on The Sim Grid website under the admin tab of the specific round. If you fail to attend a race without withdrawing you will receive penalty points that carry over into other championships, and can potentially get you disqualified from the championship.
