Stewarding

The championship will rely heavily on iRacing's inbuilt automated stewarding system however, as with all Motorsport UK community events we will have a live and post race stewarding process. All incidents must be reported by a team member no later than 30 minutes after the race.

To have an incident reviewed, you must submit any protests through the protest form here form located here and the stewards will review it and confirm the outcome during or after the race in the Discord server.

PLEASE NOTE: That as a team you will have a maximum of 2 protests available to you throughout each race

We will only look to penalise anyone who's driving has resulted in a car being 'meatballed' or losing multiple positions by deliberately crashing, aggressive or disrespectful driving. Please choose your protests wisely
