RDC Sprint Series

OVERVIEW

The RDC Sprint Series is a brand new format that we have adopted. This will replace the current Global Endurance Series until we are ready to unvale Season 2.

The Sprint Series is a 2 driver team based series where each round will feature a 90 minute race with a driver swap during a pit window mid-way through the race.

The series will be separated into 35 car splits and the number of splits will depend on the amount of teams that qualify.

Teams must have 2 drivers. Any solo registered drivers will be removed.

REGISTRATION

The first 70 teams to register will secure a slot in one of the splits of the series (as long as the teams also set the required qualification laps).

Any teams that sign up after the initial 70 will be listed as a Reserve team. Reserve teams also need to set laps on the qualification server so you will be listed as a Reserve for a split that matches your pace level.

Qualification will open on Sunday 25th July. Please join RDC Discord and #add-role to ensure you have access to any news and Driver Briefings

QUALIFICATION PROCESS

Once you have registered, all drivers in the team need to complete at least 1 session on the qualification server using the car they are registered with. A session is a minimum of 10 timed, CONSECUTIVE valid laps (out-laps and invalid laps do not count!). The lap times will then be averaged and drivers sorted based on their average lap time. The top 35 teams will be in split 1, the next 35 in split 2 and so on.

Server Name: RDC | SPRINT SERIES | QUALIFICATION SERVER | www.rapiddrivers.club
Server Password: validlaps

The qualification server will close at 23:00 BST on Tuesday 10th August.

RULES

ABSENT TEAM MATE

This is a driver swap series where each team is required to have 2 drivers. In the event that a team mate is unavailable for a race, there are 3 options available to the team:

  1. Replace the unavailable driver with somebody else. #find-a-team can be used to help source a replacement driver if neccessary.
  2. Withdraw the car from the race using the withdraw function explained further down this page.

POINTS SYSTEM

50, 45, 41, 38, 36, 34, 32, 30, 28, 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

CUSTOM LIVERIES

The use of custom liveries made outside of the game is permitted in this sprint series but please bear in mind that they are not officially supported by the game developers and their use can induce significant lag for the user.

Any politically charged or potentially offensive material on a custom livery will see that driver banned from the series.

To avoid the significant lag that custom liveries bring, we suggest that drivers run the livery but without the .png file.

WITHDRAW AND RESERVES

If a team is unavailable to attend a round in the championship, then use the withdraw function. This is found by clicking on the `Races` tab, and then `Admin` on the round you need to withdraw from. There you will find the withdraw button. Please check the info tab to see how many signouts are permitted.

If a team has withdrawn from a race, but wish to attend the race after all, please contact a member of Event staff as the slot may have already been filled by a Reserve team.

If you are a reserve team, you can see if teams have withdrawn from a round on the same `Admin` tab on each round. If you see a team has withdrawn and you wish to take their place, please contact a member of Event staff.

Reserve teams are expected to be available at the event time on race day so they can race if other drivers fail to turn up without reporting absence.
