Race Briefing – General Info

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 very important that you read the League Rules (click) and Information for New Drivers (click)
Thank you for your patience.
Ask if anything is not clear.


Discord

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 830pm GMT (2130 Europe, 1530 US East Coast)
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.


iGPFun Rules

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.
– 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)


No Blocking

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 example.


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.
Incidentally, this ensures longer battles and side by side racing that everyone enjoys.


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/curb or getting a 1x if present in iRacing
Exceptions are allowed and usually specified in the weekly race briefing.
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 also ok.

The above does not apply to corner exit.
Driving on surfaces like the green exit curbs present in many tracks is also ok.
The purpose is to avoid exploits, not to punish mistakes.
