(Please note - we are using 46 drivers for the time being while we try to determine why a couple drivers are being dropped)
5.1 We will limit the grid to 46 drivers by pre-qualifying the week prior to the event.
5.2 We will use the Fast Lap Tracker as the basis for determining the top drivers to participate. It is the drivers’ responsibility to ensure the FLT is working properly, and they must notify the league as soon as an error condition is found.
5.3 We will allow drivers to pre-qualify until Sunday night - 8pm EST.
5.4 Cut process (only followed if we exceed 48 drivers):
5.4.1 Initially we will cut any driver that is not within 3% of the average laptimes for their class.
5.4.2 We will remove an equal number of drivers from each class that has a minimum of 11 drivers in it for LMC events or 22 drivers for GTS events until we hit 44 drivers.
5.4.3 We will resume where we left off for the next race so the same class isn’t always being cut.
5.4.4 Alternate priority will be the reverse order of drivers being cut (last cut is first alternate).
5.5.1 In LMC - The top 3 finishers for the previous race and in the current standings are exempt and do not need to pre-qualify (cap of 5 max)
5.5.2 In GTS - the top 5 finisher for the previous race and in the current standings are exempt and do not need to pre-qualify (cap of 10 max)
5.5.3 Exempt Drivers that plan to participate in the race must still have a lap time recorded or they will not be included in the pre-qualifying process (and will not be able to race).
5.7 Participation – Drivers that will not be participating in the current week race are still allowed to practice on the server. However, they must notify us in advance that they will not be able to participate so they are not included in the evaluation process.
5.8 Probation – drivers on probation will automatically forfeit their pre-qualifying spot if needed for an eligible driver.
