Championship Rules and Information

Post by Admin on Thu Oct 05, 2017 8:38 pm

Here is all the information you will need to know about the DSRL 200k Sportscar Championship.

The DSRL 200k Sportscar Championship is a non contact sport, with competitors using cars that are built to LMP2 and GTE/GTLM regulations.

Championship Sign Up

All competing drivers are required to sign up for the championship using this link http://www.thedsrl.com/t598-driver-registration

Drivers are required to state what car they will use, what number of car and what class they will be running in. Drivers must ensure that the chosen number/livery does not clash with another competing driver.

This is an initial limit of 15 entries per class in force to balance out the class entries. Reserves will be accepted and if we have enough reserves we can open up more entries.

Race Sign In

To confirm that you will be racing in the next event, drivers need to post 'IN' on the appropriate event thread.

Driver Assists

In this Championship the 'Driver Assists' are set to 'Authentic'. Any drivers not choosing to run with assists is at their own discretion.

Any other assists are not allowed and will be switched off by the lobby host.

Lobby sizes

Due to Project Cars 2 having some early connection and force feedback issues, lobby sizes will be limited to 10. Please bare with us whilst we wait for more updates coming from SMS.

Points scoring

Points will be awarded to drivers in relation to other cars in their chosen class. Therefore there is a championship for Prototype and GT.

1st - 35
2nd - 32
3rd - 30
4th - 28
5th - 26
6th - 25
7th - 24
...etc

Points will then reduce by 1 point until 30th place. All other finishers will receive 1 point.

There will be 2 dropped rounds out of the 9 that are going to be run in the Championship.

Points will only be handed out if a driver crosses the finish line within 90% of their respective class winner.

Qualifying

Qualifying will start at 8pm GMT on race night. Each Qualifying session will be held over a 15 minute period. Each drivers best time will then be added into a live timing scoring system to be sorted into race lobbies. Damage will be set on during the qualifying period and  both classes of car will be on circuit at the same time so it is up to the drivers to make their own space.

Race

Each race will be run over a length of 200 kilometres, or as near to as possible.

There will be a rolling start and Prototype will form up before GT. An additional lap will be added to the lap length to accommodate for this rolling start. During a rolling start, drivers will line up in rows of two, with the pole winner starting on the right hand side. The pole winner will be the 'pace car' during this formation lap, the pole winner will be restricted to no more than 160kph. As the field nears the end of the formation lap, this speed limit will be reduced to 100kph as to ensure all cars are in formation as they approach the start.

To start the race, once the pole winner is on the start/finish straight he must call 'Green, Green, Green'. If the pole winner does not call this out then the race will start once he crosses the start/finish line. Drivers must stay in position until after the start/finish line.  

If there is large accident at any point during the race a 'safety car' my be called. The race leader will then become the effective 'safety car'. This will then give time for the track to clear and cars to be repaired. Once the last car has joined the back of the pack, they must notify everyone that the race can restart. The 'safety car' will be allowed to return to racing speed at ANY point between the final corner and the start finish line. Drivers will be allowed to pass from this moment onwards and do not need to wait until the start/finish line.

During the race, all competitors are required to make a mandatory pitstop for at LEAST TYRES. It is down to the competitors decision as to whether or not they require fuel or repairs.

Once the race leader cross the line at the end of the last lap then they are the victor. All other cars will then finish at the end of the current lap they are on.

Stewards Inquiries

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 (10.30pm following Monday). Any inquiries will be, at best, closed and penalties applied before the next event.

Broadcasting

We request that there will be no broadcasting through Twitch. This is to aid the quality of lobby connections. Mixer may be allowed depending on the stability of the lobby.

Are there any rules for the pitting under safety car conditions?

No there are no rules. Though normally the safety car would be used within the first couple of laps of the race so to give drivers a chance to fix damage.

Will Pole always be on the Right or will that vary by track?

UPDATE: There is now a limit of 15 entries per class in force. This is to ensure an even balance between the classes. Reserves will be accepted in each class and we will open up more lobbies is necessary.

UPDATE: lobby sizes will be limited to 10 due to connection and force-feed back issues. Please bare with us whilst we wait for patches from SMS.
