Racers must abide by the BUSR Rulebook. Please familiarise yourself with them before racing. The Rulebook can be found here.
All times are local times to the UK. Please note that British Summer Time will end on Sunday 29th October, which is between Rounds 2 and 3.
We will be running two formats in this season: An Endurance format, and a Sprint format. Rounds 2 and Round 4 will run the Sprint format, with the remaining rounds running the Endurance format. Details of these events can be found below:
Endurance Format - Quali: 15mins; Race: 75mins*
Sprint Format - Quali: 10mins; Sprint Race: 20mins; Feature Race: 45mins*
*1 mandatory pitstop for fuel - Refuelling time will be fixed to 25secs. Changing tyres is permitted but not required.
In the Sprint Format, the result of the Sprint Race will set the grid for the Feature Race - A new server will be made available to accommodate this.
Due to SimGrid limitations, the points distribution for each race will be made available in the Discord server. There is 1 point available for the fastest valid lap in each race, as long as said driver finishes in the top 15 overall.
Dynamic weather is enabled. There is 1 drop round per competitor.
This series will be live-stewarded, using ACC Race Control. Drivers will also be allowed to report incidents and appeal penalties as per the relevant forms distributed through the BUSR Discord server. Any incidents will be reviewed and punished as per the rulebook.
Custom liveries will be enabled for this event. A form will be made available in the Discord for uploading liveries. In-game created liveries should also be uploaded.
All members are eligible to compete in the GT3 class. Verified students signed up to NSE are required to sign up to the Student Class, and verified alumni signed up to NSE are required to sign up to the Alumni Class.
Please note that the maximum number of participants that are able to compete in each event is 50. In the event that more than 50 drivers sign up, preference will be given to the Students Class, followed by the Alumni Class, in the order that participants signed up to the series.
If you are unable to attend a certain event, we strongly encourage you to sign out of the specific event as this may allow your race spot to go to another driver.
All GT3 are eligible for this series. Once a competitor has competed with a car, they will be unable to change it.
SimGrid will allow you to use a number that has already been selected in a different class. Please be aware that another driver/team may already be using your preferred number. Car numbers are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The organisers will inform any teams with a duplicated car number to change their number in advance of the event.
