New Driver? Welcome !
Welcome to all the new members and thank you for joining us !
It is very important that you familiarize yourself with our rules and philosophy.
Every week you will receive a race briefing, on Sunday. There is a section with track specific rules that change every week and must be learnt.
It is also very important that you read the detailed League Rules (click) and Information for New Drivers (click)
Thank you for your patience.
Ask in discord if anything is not clear.
Most league communications and pre- post-race discussions are in discord nowadays.
All drivers must join for our server, for instance to receive notes about penalties. Thank you

Entering the Race Server
Non-donors must enter the server 1 hour after it launches (at 21:30 European time)
Details in the info for new drivers and in the briefing below.
Sometimes we have more drivers than available slots, so it is important that people that help pay for the broadcast have precedence.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Having 60 cars on track, we need to be extra careful and avoid accidents that can be devastating in the early race.
– There is a no pass zone for the first few corners. Details in the weekly briefing.
You must not attempt to gain places by late braking, forcing others in a difficult position or similar. The goal is to fall in line when it is safe to do so.
Aim to keep a constant gap from the car in front in your line. It is ok to pass a car in the other line if it is abnormally slow for some reason, just do not try to take advantage of the situation.
The no pass zone is a necessary evil to avoid accidents; we give up some excitement in the first couple of corners to get rewarded with 45 minutes of close and clean racing.
– 3-wide attacks are forbidden for the entire lap 1
The idea is to be patient and safe. Plenty of time to gain places in the rest of the race (45 minutes).
Detailed rules elsewhere on this site.
Blocking is not tolerated in the least and heavily penalized.
Race and let race, it is more fun for everyone.
Even one single move can be blocking.
It is defending if you move to cover before the guy behind you.
It is blocking if you move to cover after the guy behind you.
Watch the videos in the race school section of discord to see some examples.
No Dive Bombing
You must be fully alongside at turn in, ideally at the braking point, to attempt a pass and have right to the apex.
You must not attempt to overtake if you cannot stay close to the apex on a normal racing line. No cutting in front of the other car … or crashing into the sidepod!
Late dives will not win you any friend, please be patient and attack only when you know you will not cause an accident
Give Racing Space
You might have seen F1 drivers taking the track away by moving towards the outside of a corner, or even pushing others off-track. Please forget these, we do not drive like that.
You must always leave sufficient racing space for the car(s) alongside you.
This ensures longer battles and side by side racing that everyone enjoys, in contrast to getting people upset.
Stay on Track
Drivers must stay on the racing surface, usually delimited by solid white lines.
Voluntarily driving outside such lines to gain an advantage is against the rule and punishable (usually post-race).
In this context, ‘outside’ means 4-wheels past the line or getting a 1x if present in iRacing
Exceptions are allowed and specified in the weekly race briefing.
Voluntarily driving on the grass/sand is always illegal and will result in disqualification.
Driving on surfaces like the green curbs present in many tracks is ok.
The above does not apply to corner exit.
The purpose is to avoid exploits, not to punish mistakes.
Excessive number of 1x off-tracks (undisclosed number) can be punished post race (time penalty).
Drive naturally and do not worry about track limits. If, however, you keep getting 1x in the same spots, then you need to adjust your driving to avoid them. The idea is not to get an advantage by voluntarily exploiting the track limits. If it happens a few times by mistake it is no big deal, instead. Honor system.
Driving slow during qualify to improve performance on the following lap (lately referred to as brake dragging, even if done without braking) is strictly forbidden.
If you are not on a fast lap, you must give way to cars coming up behind you.
Conversely, if a car is on its fast lap it does not have to let you by even if you are faster.
