The DSRL Group A Challenge

Post by DSRL aidtheace on Thu Feb 23, 2017 3:31 pm


Hello and welcome to the DSRL Group A Challenge.
This series will feature races in the Group A class cars.
It will take place every Wednesday at 8pm UK and will start on 15th March 2017 and will run through until 10th May 2017.
Sign ups are now OPEN so go sign up HERE.

There is only 16 full time spots for this championship. Anyone signing up after 16 drivers will be a reserve and will only be allowed to race if there is space in the lobby due to a full time driver dropping out of that event.

The way the series will work is there will be 9 races, one every week. The format can be found below. Because the cars are not balanced to run in the same class, each car will have 3 races where all drivers will be in the same car making it fair for everyone.
This means there will be multiple championships to compete for in the DSRL Group A Challenge. These include:

- Overall Drivers Champion.
- Ford RS500 Cup
- Mercedes 190E Cup
- BMW E30 Cup

The format will be as follows;
Round 1: Oulton Park Island in the Ford RS500 Cosworth
Round 2: Snetterton 200 in the Ford RS500 Cosworth
Round 3: Silverstone Internationalin the Ford RS500 Cosworth
Round 4: Hockenhiem National in the Mercedes 190E DTM
Round 5: Nurburgring Sprint in the Mercedes 190E DTM
Round 6: Oschersleben National in the Mercedes 190E DTM
Round 7: Circuit De Catalunya National in the BMW E30
Round 8: Mazda Laguna Seca in the BMW E30
Round 9: Sonoma Short in the BMW E30

Each race event will feature 2 races with a distance of 30 miles, with one qualifying session.
The qualifying session will be 15 minutes long but will be set to 20 minutes to allow drivers to finish there laps and allow the host to take down the times.

- Race 1 (Qualifying order)
- Race 2 (Reverse grid of Race 1 results)

Assists.
The Assists for the championship will be ALL ALLOWED!
- All Assists means you may run what assists you like. You dont have to run any, but they are there for anyone who wants them (ABS-On, STB-On, TCS-On)

Points Scoring.
The points will be scored on the following basis:

1st - 35
2nd - 32
3rd - 30
4th - 28
5th - 26
6th - 25

Points will reduce by 1 point by all following positions.

Tuning.
Tuning in this championship WILL BE PERMITTED. So get tuning!

All other settings.
All other settings can be found in the Lobby Settings thread HERE.

Incidents & corner cutting
Report incidents and/or corner cutting or overly defensive swerving/blocking immediately after the race to the admins.

SAVE THE REPLAY! Or RECORD THE CLIP. We may not be able to see the incident from our perspective.

We are concerned that people during practice sessions are cutting corners too much. Regardless of what other series do, if you see someone outside the white lines, tell them there and then. Anyone found doing this repeatedly/deliberately will be penalised, either in points or by exclusion from the ongoing championship.

DO NOT hesitate about reporting, it will be confidential and will make the racing here cleaner, therefore better and more fun! We may need you to make and upload a clip.

It's the responsibility of the person overtaking to ensure they make a clean pass! If you do hit someone (we appreciate accidents do happen!), make sure you give them the spot back.

If you feel that you were a victim of unsportsmanlike behaviour or intentionally taken of the track. Please present footage of the incident in question to the organisers within 24 hours of the end of the event. Any inquiries will be, at best, closed and penalties applied before the next event.

Connection issues.
Any driver who loses his connection to the lobby will start the session from the back of the grid.
In case of multiple DNF's or DNS's this is sorted by the host (faster driver starts at the back).

Please make sure your connection is fine and your ports are forwarded (even if your connection acts fine).
Try www.speedtest.net, your ping is the most important (lower=better, generally below 50ms).

Broadcasting
We request that there will be no broadcasting through Twitch. This is to aid the quality of lobby connections.
