In the Professional Trophy only riders with the Simgrid ranking Semi-Professional and Professional are allowed.
Entry to the ADAC SimRacing Expo 2023 Professional Trophy is first-come, first-serve to the first 40 teams who register.
Teams are only eligible for registration if they have drivers at Semi-Pro and/or Pro Grid Rating. Any drivers of Rookie or Intermediate Grid Rating are not eligible for participation in the competition.
For each of the three online rounds of the ADAC SimRacing Expo 2023 Professional Trophy, teams must race with one driver. Teams could send a different driver for each round, or just a single driver for all three.
However, for the Finale live at the Expo, each team must have two drivers with each driver doing one race.
All teams that enter the series must agree to abide by the Sporting Code and Code of Conduct.
The full, final schedule for the final round, held live at the SimRacing Expo in Dortmund, will be posted in due course.
All races in the ADAC SimExpo 2023 Professional Trophy will have both live and post race stewarding.
Stewards will investigate collisions that are brought to their attention through the game logs, however teams can also use the protest forms made available in the Discord to report rule violations and bring them to the attention of the stewards.
Teams are requested to please check the public incident sheet to see if the contact has been put forward for investigation, before they file a report. This will save time for both the team and the stewards.
Teams will also get the opportunity to appeal against a stewards ruling. Teams are limited to only 1 appeal for the championship. Please note that appeals will only be reviewed post-race as appeals are viewed by an independent party not involved in the original decision.
Please note that the SimGrid Licence Points system documented in the Sporting Code, will be in use for the ADAC SimExpo 2023 Professional Trophy.
