MRC GPC79 Rules and Regulations
----------------------------------------



RULE #1

Have alot of fun and make new friendships that will last a lifetime ! MRC has been here for , my god , almost 7 years . In that short time , I've met so many people , some stay and some go , but it's been a blast all the way . In the GPL league , we set down some basic rules that would let us race , and if something happened , we knew exactly what the penalty was , and there was never a confused discussion about what should be done and so forth .

Read the following through at least once , it's pretty much stuff you all know already , but there's some new things included as well . And , when you get to the end , and still love MRC , Let me know if I've missed something obvious and I'll get on it asap .

Thx alot guy's and have fun !!

------------------------

The Turn 1 , or known from here on in as " Lap 1 Gentlemens Conduct " ( L1GC ) rule .

If on lap 1 , or in the pre designated " Red Zone " area posted by the league admin for that race , you make contact with another driver , causing an incident which forces a driver to :

i) Lose control of his car and spin
ii) Run off the track
iii) Lose a part of his car.

The L1GC Penalty

-----------------------

Incident case #1 : No damage to Victim : 40 kg weight , Guilty driver can qualify .

Incident case #2 : Damage to Victim , but he carries on : 40kg weight , Start from the back of the grid at next venue with no qualifying allowed .

Incident case #3 : Victim is out due to damage : DQ for that race , 40 kg weight , Start from the back of the grid at next venue with no qualifying allowed .

Incident case #4 : Any lap 1 contact with a driver in the guilty drivers following race after an incident , which causes the victim to leave the race due to damage , and the evidence points to absolute fault , DQ for that race and suspended for the next race as well . Basically , do not cause problems 2 races in a row .

-----------------------
All L1GC incidents will be scrutinized closely , with no favoritism to any one driver . If the incident in question involves the Track Marshall directly , the Second Track Marshall will step in to make the proper assesment . Incidents which are caused not by the driver behind , but by the driver in front will also be included in the L1GC rule .

This could mean losing control of your car and spinning on track , causing problems for drivers behind . If anyone comes into contact with a car out of control , the driver out of control will be penalized .


---------------------

Track Cutting ( TCV )

A track cutting violation ( TCV ) occurs when a driver is in full control of his car , and is purposely using a part of the track that is not meant to be driven on , to gain an unfair advantage over other drivers . This could be a laptime advantage , or position advantage .

The old standard , keep 2 wheels inside or on , the white line or otherwise designated area applies completely here . Kerbs , which run along the edge of the track , are not considered to be the edge of the track , and therefore , you need to have at least 2 wheels on the tarmac when using kerbs . Run off areas , that are too either side of the white line , or otherwise designated area , are not to be used for racing . They are there for safety reasons only .

Ofcourse , in a situation where the driver is trying to avoid an accident , or is pushed outside the tracks limits , or accidently cuts the track purely by accident , this will not apply . We're basically eliminating any advantage someone could gain from driving outside the designated track surface . If you feel you cut the track and gained an advantage as far as a qualifying laptime goes , slow up so the lap is null .

Lastly , on your outlap , it sometimes becomes practice to cut the last chicane , or take a wider , illegal line before your timed lap begins . This is not a practice we wish to see here at MRC GPC79 . Stay on the track legally at all times !

The TCV Penalty

Any driver caught by the Track Marshall , or reported by another driver to the Track Marshall , to be cutting the track , will be stripped of any points he makes in that race .

If you have a question about a particular part of an upcoming track , ask the admin for the outline on that section . But I think it's pretty straight forward .

---------------------

Chatting During the Race ( CDTR )

Qualifying Chat

Chatting during qualifying should be kept to a minimum . And since we have the option to turn incar chat off , we're not going to be strict on this for the qualifying session . But use common sense and try not to hold lengthy conversations while qualifying is taking place .

Race Chat

When the green lights flash to begin the race , all communication between anyone on the server stops as far using the chatbox is concerned until every driver is finished that race completely . Chatting is a major distraction for all the other drivers in the race , and will not be tolerated at all . If you've been taken out of the race , and feel the need to express your anger about the situation , use the forum , but please , walk away and take 10 minutes to think about it , and , even , watch the replay before you start ranting .

If you've missed your opportunity to get onto the starting grid , enter your pit stall , drive to the pit limit line and wait for the green light to signal that you are able to join the race . This will take place after the warmup , and after the official race start . You will join the feild in last position .

Absolutley , at no time , is anyone to use the voting option . The voting option , as far as MRC GPC79 is concerned , does not exist . That is for public race servers , not league racing . Voting will be considered chatting and subsequently be assesed the same way .

For any drivers wishing to make sure they do not get the chatbox on their screen during the race , or any other session , see this post on how to eliminate it completely . Turning Incar Chat Off

The CDTR Penalty

If you've made a CDTR violation , you will be suspended for your next race , and start from the back of the grid at the following race you take part in . Chatting and Voting , during the race itself will not be tolerated by the MRC GPC79 League .

Practice races during the week ofcourse do not apply .

---------------------

Racing Etiquette

Pit out

When qualifying , it's the responsibility of every driver to behave in a professional manner towards his fellow drivers . This means yeilding completely to oncoming traffic when you begin your outlap . Make sure the track is clear before you speed off out of the pits , and take the preffered line . If an oncoming car is seen in your mirrors before turn 1 , slow and move to the opposite side of the preffered line until it's clear to you that nobody else is coming . If we all practice this safely , no problems should arise .

Warmup Lap

The lead driver on pole position sets the pace for this lap , and all other drivers should wait until the car in front of them has left , before they begin . The lead driver should try to keep a constant and safe speed throughout the lap . If a driver does lose control of his car , it's his responsibility to make sure he makes it to the grid , or the pits . The warmup lap will not be restarted for any reason . This includes a situation where driver 1 , hits driver 2 on the warmup lap . If driver 2 is unable to continue because of damage to the car , regardless if he can make the pits or not , driver 1 will be penalized with a 1 race ban , not including the race in which the incident happened . He will also forfeit any points he might make in hte race the incident took place .

Take your time , warm your tires safely , and show common sense . That's all .

Remember to map a key for your ignition . This will save your engine from overheating . When you arrive at your designated grid spot , approach it carefully as not to go past , then trigger your ignition key . Make sure you are in Nuetral so that when the start sequence is about to begin , your engine will be automatically started for you .

The Beginning Of The Race

With the L1GC rule in place , it's imperative that we all use caution and sound mind when that last set of lights go green . Do not attempt a manouver that your not sure will work without disregard to safety , and disregard for your fellow drivers . Putting yourself at risk is your option , but putting your fellow league drivers and friends at risk is stupid and selfish .

Stay In Your Lane !

Unless a spot beside you opens up , and it's clear that you can pass a car safely without putting a driver behind in jeopardy . Other than that , stay in the lane your driving in , to avoid any problems . The L1GC rule is unforgiving , so please be careful and take care that your attempting a pass or lane change safely .

Recovering your car from off track

If you've spun off the track , safely returning to the track is a must . The track needs to be clear before you attempt re-entry . If you throw caution to the wind , and a driver behind you ends up rear ending your car , you will be penalized . Any points you earn in that race , or the following race will be stripped .

If your car spins on the track , and there is oncoming traffic . Remain still and let the oncoming traffic pass safely . If someone hits you while you are stationary , that will be deamed as an accident . However , for anyone spinning their tires trying to recover while on track , with oncoming traffic , get's hit by another driver , you will suffer the same fate as the driver mentioned above .


Getting Lapped

I have yet to see a problem with back markers not moving over . So let's keep it that way , choose a safe area to move aside as safely as you can and we'll all be fine .

Failure to move over for a car lapping you will result in a penalty . Even though I can't see ever using this penalty , we better have one in place incase the need arises . If a lead car is trying to get by , the lapped driver has 2 corners and 2 straights in which he can move over to let the car by . After 2 corners and 2 straights , he has still not moved over , or slowed for the car to pass , he will be starting from the back of the grid his next race .

Hold your line if the car lapping you is right on you , and slow so it's safe to go by . Do not make any sudden lane changes , let the driver pass you , where you are , or , move off the prefferred line ahead of time so he can safely speed by .


Final Notes On Penalties

Although we have penalties setup for the first portion of the race , driving with respect for each other is something we need to practice for the entire race . If a driver is pointed out to a Track Marshall to be driving eratically , or unsafely , the incident will be reviewed . The driver could recieve the following , depending on the severity...

i) Start at the back of the grid for the next race
ii) Lose points for that race , and his next race
iii) Be banned for 1 or more races depending on the severity of the incident .


Last Notes

Have fun guy's . Writing all these rules into place is no big deal , but actually handing penalties out sucks . So make it easy on all of us and race clean , like the car your driving is real , and your friend beside you is also driving a real car . In the end , we'll have more fun knowing that we're a clean league that enjoy's racing the way it was intended , rather than a bunch of sunday afternoon wankers going balls to the wall every week. This is the reason we started a league in the first place right ? Treat the league with respect , and treat each other with respect , and we'll all be fine .

Remember , if accidents do occur , that they are just that , accidents . Nobody is out to intentionally ruin anyone elses race . So rest assured that the driver that may have caused you grief is definately sorry for his mistake immediately . There is no need for finger pointing or ranting . Accidents do happen . Remember the no chat rule is in effect for the entire race including accidents . If your forced out of the race , leave your PC and relax before you go into the forum and say some things you may regret later .

We're only human , well i'm almost , but most of you are , we make mistakes !

That's it for now , If we've forgotten a situation that requires some outlining , please don't hesitate to tell us ok .

I've made some changes to a couple rules .

Glenn Titan pointed out some things that made good sense , and I've adjusted the following....

The L1GC Penalty

You will be penalized by losing any points you make in the race the incident occured . Secondly , you will be starting at the back of the grid for your next race , and suffer a weight penalty as well .

This was changed so the penalty is served immediately after a race , without waiting a race or two to recieve a penalty from a previous race . Made good sense .




Track Cutting ( TCV )

The old standard , keep 2 wheels inside or on , the white line or otherwise designated area applies completely here . Kerbs , which run along the edge of the track , are not considered to be the edge of the track , and therefore , you need to have at least 2 wheels on the tarmac when using kerbs . Run off areas , that are to either side of the white line , or otherwise designated area , are not to be used for racing . They are there for safety reasons only .

Any driver caught by the Track Marshall , or reported by another driver to the Track Marshall , to be cutting the track , will be stripped of any points he makes in that race .


As Glenn has raced F2 professional , I'm taking his word on this as gold . Some Sim leagues have different views on Kerbs and what you can and can't do , but I think this keeps things simple and effective .

Thx for the tips Glenn :thumbup:

Well, you can pit for wing replacement, and maybe small repairs, but they won't give you any fuel. There's a setting you should check as well that will make sure they don't take your fuel out !

Can't remember what it is..., anyone know what he should check for that ?

Hi Piket,

The setting to change so the crew doesn't take all your fuel out is in your D:\Games\rFactor1979\UserData\Cesare Ascari\Cesare Ascari.PLR file.

Look for this line :

Race Stint Offset="1" // Offset each scheduled pitstop in case you want to carry extra fuel

Make sure you have a 1 there and you'll be ok.
