    General Information

    Tiered Qualification Process
    In the event of a larger than expected sign-up to this championship, we may elect to run multiple leagues. These leagues will be tiered, with the aim of separating the faster and slower drivers, based on the results of a specified time-trial.

    The date and format of the time-trial will be posted on the forum, in advance of the event taking place. Failure to set a time in the time trial may result in you being placed in the lower tiered league.


    Pre-race Procedure & Requirements
    Prior to any of our events starting, you are required to be in our TeamSpeak channel for the driver briefing. Any drivers missing the briefing will not be allowed to race.

    All drivers are required to read the details of each race event prior to the start of each race. These event details contain important information pertaining to warm-up lap speed limits and the location (and placement) for the grid "forming up".

    Cars, Teams & Livery Selection

    Car Selection
    The following cars are available for selection:
    - Aston Martin Vantage
    - BMW M6 GTLM
    - Chevrolet Corvette C7.R
    - Ford GT LM GTE
    - Ferrari 488 GTE

    A car change is allowed under the following criteria:
    - The driver must have completed at least 2 races with their current car.
    - The driver acknowledges the fact that they will lose all of their championship points in both the Driver's and Team's standings and will start again from 0.


    Team Selection
    For season four, teams will consist of 2 drivers. At the end of the time-trial events, the admin team will use those times, combined with the Stats table and past experience, to not only split the drivers into their appropriate lobby but, also into two groups, which will form the 'ProAm'-style team. Every driver will be allowed to choose their partner, there is no bias in favour of either group. Teams must consist of one Pro and one Am driver. Drivers must also stick to their chosen team for the duration of the season.


    Livery Selection
    At the close of sign-up, each team will need to choose their preferred livery and post their choice in the 'Livery and Team Selection Thread'. Once the livery allocation process has concluded, teams will be obliged to stick to their chosen livery for the full duration of the season. Both drivers must run the same livery, do not select multiple liveries.

    Points System

    Driver Championship Scoring

    - Pole Position = 2 point
    - Fastest Lap = 2 point


    In the case of drivers being tied on points in the standings, the higher position will be awarded to the holder of most first places. If the number of first places is the same, the holder of most second places, then third places, and so on until a winner emerges.


    Team Championship scoring
    Teams will score points for each race based on the finishing positions of both of their drivers.
