Realistic Racing AMLS 2000 - Rules & Regs

Post by Guest on 12/17/2012, 11:29 pm

Hey guys, some of you know me, but for those that don't here's a quick run down. Myself and Boost been in positions of running leagues, administrating leagues and generally league racing for a very long time now, and we've been interested in running a league for a while now that does things the way we think they should be done. And well, long story short, after talking with Del and Sniper for a little, Del has been nice enough to give us a spot here at Realistic to run this league.

The rule set, while long, is fairly standard but Boost and I have found that if we don't layout every little thing from the start it could lead to some confusion. So hopefully everything here is clear for everyone, but if it isn't feel free to ask and we'll give you an answer.

2.6 A driver may also pre-race. If a driver pre-races, a time and a replay must be sent to an Admin or Steward, if both are not sent then the time will not count. If you pre-race and are then able to make the race, you will be allowed to race if you wish.

(Driver was in B room and there are 16 drivers on A room then there will be a 78sec overall penalty)

Miscellaneous Rules:

12.1 - It is up to the passing car to make the pass safely, whether or not you are in the same class. Failure to race safely may result in point penalties and/or suspensions/removal from the series.
12.2 - If you are being passed by a higher class, HOLD YOUR RACE LINE. Leave room when they get next to you, otherwise run your normal race line and try to stay predictable. Failure to race safely may result in point penalties and/or suspensions/removal from the series.
12.3 - If there is any reasonably avoidable incidents it will be looked at after the race. We have zero tolerance for dirty driving. Failure to race safely may result in point penalties and/or suspensions/removal from the series.
12.4 - No corner cutting in anyway. If there is no room to pass, then there is no room to pass. Failure to race safely may result in point penalties and/or suspensions/removal from the series.
12.5 - You must use the full pit lane when entering and exiting. Point penalties will be added if not followed.
12.6 - You may not, at any time, drive over the pit in/out line under normal racing conditions. Point penalties will be added if not followed.
12.7 - The only no passing zone is in your judgment. We won’t stop a bold move if you can hold it, but drivers will be severely penalized for unnecessary car contact.
12.8 - Blue Flags: Lapped cars should, when safe, allow the lead lap cars to pass by. Make your intensions early and on a long straight.
12.9 - There are no REWARDS, this is a spec series while letting everyone’s car be slightly different.
12.10 - If one car is seen dominating the field there may be an adjustment, but is not done because of one driver and it is highly unlikely to be done mid-season
12.11 - Any reasonably avoidable incidents will be reviewed. Accidents happen and rubbing is racing, but damaging someone’s car because of impatience or negligence is not tolerated here. Penalties WILL be given
12.12 - Only one blocking move may be used before each turn. You can zig but not zag
12.13 - If you run off the track while near other cars WAIT before coming back on, let the track clear up first. Penalties may be handed out if not followed
12.14 - If while passing a car you accidentally cut the corner, at the next possible opportunity you must give the position back
12.15 - If someone is racing dirty with you and you retaliate to get ‘revenge’ you will receive a penalty as well. Let them go, save the replay and inform an Admin or Steward. It will be handled
12.16 - Lastly, have respect for your fellow drivers, both on and off the track. A little banter about how Chevy sucks or Team bickering is all well and good. Just keep the drama out, if you have a problem with someone, PM an Admin or Steward and it will be taken care of. Thanks!

Closing Statement:

These are very different cars in different classes. Clean racing isn't an option, it's mandatory. We don't mean to sound overly strict about this and suck the fun out of it, we just want to make it clear that this is for clean racing only. A little bit of damage can kill these cars and none of us want that. Smile

We’re happy to answer any questions. Just please read the rules twice before you ask.
