MRC Rules

Use of Shift R

The MRC will be using the "Intermediate Long" setting in it's on-line races. Shift R is available to any driver, anywhere, on lap 1. After lap 1, if they are able to make it safely into the pits to use this feature, they may do so.  A driver using Shift R anywhere outside of pitlane, after lap 1, will be disqualified for that race.

TURN 1 RULE

We've all dealt with the frustrations in public pick-up races and their inevitable crash in Turn 1, Mybroga sets the bar much higher and expects that each driver will do their utmost to stay clean for the start, the first turn, and hopefully the entire first lap. Any contacts, at the start and through turn 1 will be scrutinized VERY CLOSELY. If it's found (by the 3 judge panel) that a driver is responsible for a wreck of any type or size, he'll start from the back of the grid in the next race. Which means, no qualifying.

Other incidents

If you make a mistake pulling onto the track, cutting someone off, or not allowing a faster driver to lap through after he's persisted, you'll be warned. If it happens again the next race, you'll be DQ'd from that race. Again in the 3rd race you take part in, you'll be sidelined for the next race. Come back after your suspension only to pull it off again, another 1 race suspension.

In other words......show some common courtesy to your buddies out there. Try and race with your mirrors as much as possible to avoid these run-ins. Last, but not least, maintain a constant line throughout the track if there's a driver threatening to pass. Let him pick the spot to pass, and just hold your line.

Racing accidents will continue to be just that, racing accidents. But after 8 seasons, we all have a pretty good idea of what those are. We don't expect anyone to move over onto the grass etc. as soon as a driver (that your racing for position) gets behind you. But use your head. Or you'll simply be punished. No races should be decided on a lapped cars involvement.

All drivers must have fun, show respect towards his fellow league members on and off the track, and remember, we do this for fun. Also, there is absolutely no excuse for using an engine swapper utility, if it's found your doing so, you'll be terminated from the league.

Remember, if GPL stops counting your laps your finishing result will be extrapolated from the server replay.

Just a comment. Shouldn't you include the rule about "other incidents" as from the Mybroga website if this is intended to be a complete listing of the "rules"?

SOLELY RESPONSIBLE.  Nice ring to it. I wonder what it means...  

Three cars.  Two botched starts. One good start gets a penalty

Can I get a judges ruling on weather or not the above can be considered wining?  he he..

No, really though, the new judges have got to continually evaluate their decisions with respect to the message that the League is trying to get across. Ultimately, I believe that it's probably best that penalties don't regularly (or maybe never?) get overturned BUT I think it's obvious that it's in the league's best interest to be as fair as possible and do the best job as possible... and that requires a close look at cause and effect and the application of the definition of Sole Responsibility.  

I almost think we may as well utilize the Average Driver Club's (ADC) T1 rule that ABSOLUTELY NO T1 PASSING IS ALLOWED by the way that T1 incidents are viewed. No T1 passing? Is that bad? Actually, I think that the ADC's no passing in T1 rule worked astoundingly well. It almost totally removed the possibility of crashes caused by botched starts and eliminated the pressure to get a good start. It also gave a great reminder of the importance of car seperation at the start of each race as well as the value of a properly set-up pass as opposed to a banzai/go for it style of pass. Lastly, It placed a greater importance on qualifying as it eliminated the chance of passing handfulls of cars because of a good jump start and made more space between cars before passing was allowed.

On the other hand... I really kind of hated the no T1 rule. What do you mean I can't get a jump on the other guy? Screw him if he got pole but can't get his damned car moving as the flag drops? Isn't this supposed to be RACING? Not synchronized figure skating for overweight middle aged house frau's. That's part of the excitement. That's part of the challenge. There's a reason they called it the Average Driver's Club!! Aren't we all trying to someday be able to outbrake PJ in the last turn for the win with a setup we developed ourselves or slide the car through turns with the deft precision of Fangio in the 250F at Nurburgring? (Omigod! I used Fangio and PJ in the same thought!  Scary somehow..) That's why we joined Mybroga, right? To learn, to try to be faster than the other guy, and maybe show up for the big party in the summer and have a few beers with Ascari!

Of course, I am mostly ignorant of the league's history regarding this topic and have totally ignored all the thought and heartbreak that must have gone into the harsh stance that is taken in the matter.  T1 crashes come about from Hunger and Confidence and Ignorance and Poor Judgement and Opportunity and Loss of Opportunity and Reaction Time and Latency and Packet Losses and... stuff. That's a lot to take into account for 3 anonymous judges.

Maybe the rules should be different for the D and C divisions. Maybe no T1 passing should be allowed for these divisions and when you move up to A and B you should be expected to accept more risk and be better equipped to manage the risk so that T1 passing is allowed. With Cyberracers we ran pro races with no Shift-R. That perhaps had the ultimate effect of causing people to be mindful of their actions. Maximum risk, maximum responsibility, no penalties.

Or maybe the upper divisions are already too heavily laden with testosterone. After all, you've really got to be able to dance on the edge to go that fast on a consistent basis... not a lot of room for error. The friction circle doesn't account for ego or anger. Maybe more restrictions are necessary to keep the thoroughbreds in check? Since you can Shift-R the first lap what's the difference, right?  All you gotta do is keep your line, don't lift, and make the other guy look like he made the mistake!

Well... by this time you may have realized that I'm kinda rambling...  I guess whatever the League's stance is on rules and regs it's good to post them from time to time... like Uncle Smiley has done here in this thread... for all of us to gaze at and ponder...

Including the judges!  god bless them... each and every one.

It has come up many times.
Alot of us like the thought of no shift R, ever...but then there are others who are afraid of how close the cars are at the start, with our bad connections, more chance of warp.

I myself would vote for no Shift R ever(not pro, then more cars blow up and stuff).
When is the last time we have had a race without a T1 incident??
Doenst seem to happen very often, is it our crutch? Maybe...like you said, why worry, I can race hard on the first lap cause I cant wreck anyones race, they can simply shift R if I touch them as I try this late braking, dive bombing move Posted Image (No it has not happened to me too often this season, just an example) Posted Image

Anyways, I am sure this topic will come up many more times, as we seem to always have incidents in the early laps.

O, and another thing.....since I will not be penalized for anything BUT a T1 crash, wait for T2, to start racing hard, and if I make a mistake..it's just racing Posted Image Not smart racing likely, T2 thru basically the entire first lap, everyone is on cold tires with full fuel Posted Image
Again, examples, I have not had too many incidents this season, lucky for me Posted Image

Let me add one more thing(geeze I had to start the PC up again for this).

I know that there is nobody in the league that wrecks anyone on purpose!
I do however think, because of our Shift R rule, we may race a tad more aggresive on the first lap, when really, we shouldnt, because of the cold tires, and fuel situation.

Ok good night!!

If it isn't too much work the admin they could look at the entire first lap. They penalize for T1, but they could give out a warning for innapropriate L1 behavior. Nothing as far as penalties go, but just a mental warning to say "hey, cool it a little"

No passing before T1 rule? Gah! Please, no. The ADC is a great group of guys, but in the few races I've managed to run with them, they have MORE T1 incidents than us. Maybe it's better lately Doug, but it took a long time for this to start working as intended. I expect it would take even longer for us. Note that they have a VERY strict rule about this. If the guy beside you in a 2X2 grid bogs his engine, you are not allowed to continue accelerating. Lots of accordion effect incidents.

L1 behaviour held to the same standard as T1? Sure, why not? Heck, I wouldn't mind if people were held to this standard the entire race. But I understand the opposition to it and don't want to create an administrative nightmare.

No shift-r? Gah! Please, no. People qualifying on or near the pole would suddenly feel somewhat more nervous braking for T1, I can guarantee you that. And it usually isn't the guy making the mistake who pays the price.

Basically, though, it ain't broke. Don't fix it. Mybroga has worked well for 9 seasons as it is. Posted Image

Rhys, I'm with you. I like the fact that the whole race is a race (including T1) and that you can still get back in if a mistake is made in the first lap.

I only hope that T1 incidents are judged with the same common sense that we are asked, as drivers, to excersize when behind the wheel...  and that some T1 incidents can be considered "racing incidents"...  and that handing out penalties should not be done to "make an example" of how serious the league is with T1 incidents. (not that this happens. I'm just saying... is all)

After all, we all know how hard it is to see beside our cars sometimes. Especially when a lot is going on around us.

I was really just philosophising in my post above. The two hours I spent thinking and typing it would have been better spent practicing at Barber!!!

Doug,

start/T1 incidents are very hard to rate as "racing incidents" but their have been many examples in the past.

A quote from one of the judges:

............."whether multiple cars are crashed out or not is NOT as significant as the ACTION that causes (or COULD cause) such incidents".  

............"a driver made a questionable move that could just as easily taken out a number of cars instead of proceeding relatively unscathed. It is just such questionable moves that we have to try and educate the guys NOT to make in the future".

The consequences of a start/T1 incident are far greater than an incident out on the track.  That is why their is a start/T1 rule and we don't penalize incidents out on the track.

Well this thread was great to read. As I wait patiently for my ride, reading topics like this help to understand the mind set for a race. Also to understand that your running a great league. Can't wait to start running and see how I fit into it all.

LEAGUE RULES

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 !!"

CA



All drivers must have fun, show respect towards his fellow league members on and off the track, and remember, we do this for fun. Also, there is absolutely no excuse for using an engine swapper utility, if it's found your doing so, you'll be terminated from the league.

How the Teams and Divisions are selected

3 divisions of 17 drivers - On S20 Div-B will have an 18th driver (a privateer).

Top 7 drivers in the "A" divison after a seasons final standings will each pick a teamate from the remaining "A" division starting with the #1 driver. This includes the Division B Champion and three B division recruits brought up from each season, they will be available for drafting. The bottom four A division drivers from each season will become the top 4 drivers and captains in the B division. The same holds true for the B division in regards to drafting and recruiting 4 drivers from C.

7th place driver in each division gets first pick of chassis , then 6th and so on.
Also, captains 1 thru 3 pick two teammates (both at the same time) and captains 4 thru 7 pick one teammate.


Driver Trades

Should 2 drivers want to trade chassis for a season, both those chassis captains in that division would have to agree for the teammates to switch. Captains of each team have the final say and both must agree. Captains in a division cannot trade themselves.
Driver trades are not open to league votes. Its up to the captains to look out for the best enterest of the league.



Online Race Times


Races will go online for qaulifying at 8:30 - 9 pm EST (USA) , all races run the " Intermediate " Long setting .

Divison A - Wednesday's

Division B - Wednesday's

Division C - Tuesday's



MRC Race Rules

Use of Shift R

The MRC will be using the "Intermediate Long" setting in it's online races. Shift R is available to any driver, anywhere, on lap 1. After lap 1, if they are able to make it safely into the pits to use this feature, they may do so. A driver using Shift R anywhere outside of pitlane, after lap 1, will be disqualified (DQ) for that race.

If the driver again abuses the rule in the next race, he'll be DQ'd from that race, and be suspended from the next race. Using shift R during our races, not only abuses our league rules, but it could very well create further problems with drivers still in the race.

Track Cutting ( TCV )

A track cutting violation ( TCV ) occurs when a driver is in full control of his car, and is purposefully and 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. These cars are difficult to control, so missing a corner to the inside a few times during a race is not considered a violation of this rule. For qualifying, abort any laps by slowing down if one has accidentally "cut the track" gaining an unfare time advantage.

The old standard, keep 2 wheels inside or on the TMs accepted legal racing surface. 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.

Of course, 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 when beginning a timed hotlap, 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. Stay on the track legally at all times!


MISSING GREEN FLAG

If for some strange reason you miss the green flag at the start of a race, GPL automatically counts you as a lap down. However, MRC does not ! If you wait your 60 seconds, then enter the track, we will NOT count you as a lap down, but adjust your position after the race depending on where and who you finished behind. Having no use of pitboard for the race is penalty enough. Please notify Ostoich or The Marshalls asap after the race end if this has happened to you!

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 flag waves, all communication between anyone on the server stops until every driver is finished that race completely. Wait until the race session status says "completed" to congratulate the winner. Others may still be finishing their last lap. Chatting is a major distraction for all the other drivers in the race, and will not be tolerated at all. Drivers are encouraged to turn off in car chatting for the race, yet may not always remember to do so.


TURN 1 (T1) RULE

We've all dealt with the frustrations in public pick-up races and their inevitable crash in Turn 1, Mybroga sets the bar much higher and expects that each driver will do their utmost to stay clean for the start, the first turn, and hopefully the entire first lap. Any contacts, at the start and into turn 1 will be scrutinized VERY CLOSELY. If it's found (by the 3 judge panel) that a driver is responsible for a wreck of any type or size, he'll start from the back of the grid in the next race. Which means, no qualifying.

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 T1 rule is unforgiving, so please be careful and take care that your attempting a pass or lane change safely.

The Beginning Of The Race

With the T1 rule in place, it's imperative that we all use caution and sound mind when that green flag waves. 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.

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 straights in which he can move over to let the car pass. 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 past.


Other incidents

If you make a mistake pulling onto the track, cutting someone off, or not allowing a faster driver to lap through after he's persisted, you'll be warned. If it happens again the next race, you'll be DQ'd from that race. Again in the 3rd race you take part in, you'll be sidelined for the next race. Come back after your suspension only to pull it off again, another 1 race suspension.

In other words......show some common curtiousy to your buddies out there. Try and race with your mirrors as much as possible to avoid these run-ins. Last, but not least, maintain a constant line throughout the track if there's a driver threatening to pass. Let him pick the spot to pass, and just hold your line.

Racing accidents will continue to be just that, racing accidents. But after 19 seasons, we all have a pretty good idea of what those are. We dont expect anyone to move over onto the grass etc. as soon as a driver (that your racing for position) gets behind you. But use your head. Or you'll simply be punished. No races should be decided on a lapped cars involvement.

All drivers must have fun, show respect towards his fellow league members on and off the track, and remember, we do this for fun. Also, there is absolutely no exscuse for using an engine swapper utility, if it's found your doing so, you'll be terminated from the league.

Remember, if GPL stops counting your laps your finishing result will be extrapolated from the server replay.




MRC Penalty Guidelines

Every member of Mybroga Racing Club is responsible for checking the “RACE REPORTS AND COMMENTS” thread at the “Mybroga Motorsports” forum at http://forums.speedg...hp?showforum=25 to check the “Penalty” thread to see if they have been assessed a penalty.

If you are assessed a penalty and don't comply with the penalty ruling you will be DQ'd from the race. Failing to check the “Penalty” thread is no excuse.

If you are involved in an incident save your replay or download the server replay and check it out for yourself. If you want to explain your position to the judges email "The Marshalls” within 24 hours of the incident. Once the penalties are posted in the forum the decision is final.

Check for server replay links in the corresponding race reports and comments thread for your division or at http://www.bcsims.com/speed/replays/

If you have a question about a penalty, first PM "The Marshalls" and ask them.

Then you can complain in the penalty post from the race. Talk about it, or explain why you did what you did. Once the penalties are posted in the forum the decision is final.

What violations should I report, and which ones shouldn't I report?

T1 incidents

Shift R violations

Unsafe track recovery causing accident

Race warnings

Don't report:

Racing accidents

Just because we have 3 judges assessing accidents, does not mean they want you reporting straight forward race accidents. (ie. Lap 4, driver 1 takes out driver 2 heading into a turn) The rules are the same, we don't issue penalties to drivers for making a mistake while RACING. If there is a sincere feeling that someone is not just making mistakes and has repeatedly and purposefully attempted to cause an "accident," then by all means bring the incidents (that is plural...more than just one incident) to the attention of The Marshalls or Horacio Ostoich via private mail (PM). This sort of behavior will not be tolerated between league members. Just remember that these cars are difficult to control for all of us. Accidents happen and all drivers must assume the other party is sorry for their part in any accident. PLEASE no ranting in the forum.

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, treat each other with respect, and we'll all be fine.

Remember, just to repeat 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 definitely 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 chatting about an accident. 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. Thanks ahead to all Mybrogians for their patience and participation in this gentleman's club of GPL racing fanatics!

Reglas de la Liga

Regla 1

"Diviertanse y hagan nuevos amigos, que seguramente serán de por vida! MRC ha estado aqui por 7 años. En este corto tiempo he conocido mucha gente, algunos se quedaron, otros se fueron, pero nos hemos divertido mucho. En la liga GPL, hemos dispuesto unas reglas basicas que nos permitiran correr y, si algo sucede, sabremos exactamente la penalidad que corresponda, por ello, no han habido discusiones acerca de lo que se debería haber hecho.

Lean a continuación por lo menos una vez, muchas cosas ustedes ya las saben, pero hay incluidas algunas cosas nuevas tambien. Y cuando hayan leido todo, avisen si existe algo muy obvio que se haya omitido, lo arreglaremos rápidamente

Gracias a todos y pasenla bien"

Como se eligen divisiones, pilotos y chasis

3 divisiones de 17 pilotos, en la S20 habrá 1 auto privado en la División B.

Los 7 primeros pilotos de la División A al terminar el torneo, elegiran compañeros entre los demás pilotos de la A. Comenzando por el piloto número 1. Esto incluye a los 3 pilotos reclutados de la división B, junto a su Campeón. Los últimos 4 de la división A de cada temporada, se transformarán en los 4 primeros pilotos y capitanes de equipo de la división B. Lo mismo ocurrirá entre la B y la C

El 7mo piloto de cada division, elije primero chasis, luego el 6to y así hasta el 1ro.
También, los Capitanes del 1ro al 3ro elegirán dos compañeros de equipo (ambos al mismo tiempo) y los capitanes del 4to al 7mo, un compañero de equipo cada uno.

Intercambio de Pilotos

Si 2 pilotos desean intercambiar chasis para la temporada, ambos capitanes de la división deben dar el visto bueno para el cambio. Los Capitanes tienen la decisión final y ambos deben estar de acuerdo.
Los Capitanes de una división no pueden intercambiar.

Guia de Penalidades MRC

Cada miembro de Mybroga Racing Club es responsable de revisar el subforo “RACE REPORTS AND COMMENTS” en el foro de Mybroga Motorsports por si ha recibido algún tipo de sanción.
http://forums.speedg...hp?showforum=25

Si recibe una penalización y no la cumple, será DESCLASIFICADO de la carrera. No haber visto el tema donde se informaba la penalización no es excusa.

Si están involucrados en un incidente, guarden su replay o descarguen el replay del servidor y revisen nuevamente las maniobras.

Si desean explicar su posición a los jueces, pueden enviar un email al Administrador dentro de las 24 Hs. de ocurrido el incidente. Él informara a los jueces.

Una vez que las penalizaciones son publicadas en el foro, la decisión es final.

Si tienen alguna duda respecto a una penalización, primero consulten con el Administrador vía Email.
Luego, pueden quejarse en el tema de la penalización correspondiente. Charlar sobre el, o explicar por que has hecho lo que has hecho. Pero recuerda que una vez que las penalizaciones son publicadas en el foro, la decisión es final.

Para contactarse con el Administrador: mybroga@gmail.com

Esta dirección puede ser utilizada si tienes un reporte de accidente que quieres que vean los jueces. Ten en mente que el Administrador no toma decisiones respecto a los incidentes, los 3 jueces anónimos se encargan de ello.

¿Qué tipo de violaciones debo reportar y cuales no?

REPORTAR:
Incidentes en la Curva 1
Violaciones de Shift R (se permite unicamente en vuelta 1 libre, luego solamente en pits)
Reingresos peligrosos a la pista, causando accidentes
Advertencias de carrera

NO REPORTAR
Accidentes normales de carrera

Solo porque tenemos 3 jueces revisando accidentes, no significa que quieran que vos reportes simples accidentes de carrera (Ej.: Vuelta 4, piloto 1 saca de pista a piloto 2 en una curva) Las Reglas son las mismas, no se penalizan errores de carrera. Si existe una sincera sensación que alguien simplemente no está cometiendo errores, repetidamente e intencionalmente intentó causar un "accidente", entonces se deberán notificar los incidentes (plural, lease más de un incidente) a The Marshalls o Horacio Ostoich via Mensaje Privado (MP). Este tipo de actitudes no será tolerada entre miembros de la liga.
Solamente recuerden que estos autos son dificiles de controlar para todos nosotros. Los accidentes ocurren y todos los pilotos debemos asumir que quien nos ha perjudicado lo lamenta por su parte en el accidente. POR FAVOR, no discutir o quejarse en el foro.

Uso de Shift R

MRC está actualmente utilizando la opción “Intermediate Long” para sus carreras en linea. Shift R está disponible para todos los participantes en cualquier lugar de la pista, EN LA VUELTA 1.
Luego de la vuelta 1, deberán utilizar Shift R SOLAMENTE dentro de los BOXES. Un piloto utilizando Shift R en cualquier parte de la pista FUERA DE BOXES, luego de la vuelta 1, será desclasificado de esa carrera.

Si el piloto infringe nuevamente la regla en la siguiente carrera, será DESCLASIFICADO de ella y SUSPENDIDO para la siguiente. Utilizando Shift R durante las carreras online no solo abusa de las reglas de la liga, si no tambien puede crear problemas con pilotos que aún estan en carrera.

Cortes de Pista ( TCV )

Una violacion de corte de pista (TCV) ocurre cuando el piloto está en completo control de su auto e intencionalmente y repetidamente usa una parte de la pista que no está considerada para transitar, para ganar una ventaja injusta sobre otros competidores. Esto puede traducirse en ventaja de tiempo o posición. Estos autos son dificiles de controlar, asi que errar una curva unas pocas veces durante una carrera nos e considera violacion de la regla. Para clasificar, por favor, ABORTAR cualquier vuelta lanzada si uno accidentalmente ha cortado camino, obteniendo una ventaja injusta.

El viejo standard de poner 2 ruedas sobre el asfalto aplican completamente aqui.
Deberán tener 2 neumaticos sobre el asfato aún si existen pianos. Vias de escape, que estén a ambos lados de la linea blanca que delimita la pista, o cualquier otra area designada, no deben ser transitadas. Existen solamente por razones de seguridad.

Por supuesto, en una situacion donde el piloto intenta evitar un accidente, o si es empujado fuera de los limites de la pista, o accidentalmente corta la pista, esta regla no aplicará. Basicamente estamos eliminando cualquier ventaja que alguien podria ganar conduciendo fuera de la zona designada. Si crees que cortaste la pista clasificando y ganarás tiempo de manera injusta, por favor, aminora la marcha así la vuelta no servirá.

Por último, al final de tu vuelta de calentamiento, a veces existe la posibilidad de cortar la ultima chicana o tomar la ultima curva más abierto para ganar velocidad final. Esta es una practica que no deseamos ver aqui en MRC, por lo tanto, mantente dentro de los limites de la pista en todo momento!


Bandera Verde

Si por alguna extraña razon no puedes ingresar a pista en el inicio de la carrera, GPL automaticamente te contará 1 vuelta abajo, Pero MRC no!! Si esperas 60 segundos, puedes entrar a pista y largar de boxes, MRC no te restará la vuelta y ajustará tu posicion final dependiendo donde termines ubicado en pista.
Por favor, informa a Horacio Ostoich o The Marshalls inmediatamente despues de terminada la carrera lo que te ha ocurrido.


Chat durante la carrera ( CDTR )

Chat en clasificacion

Chatear durante la clasificacion debe ser reducido al minimo. Teniendo en cuenta que existe la opcion de desconectar el incar chat, no vamos a es estrictos en la tanda de clasificacion. Pero utilicen el sentido comun y traten de no mantener charlas largas mientras se desarrolla la clasificacion.


Chat en Carrera

Cuando flamea la bandera verde, toda comunicacion via chat debe terminar en el server hasta que el último piloto finalice la competencia. Esperen hasta que el status de sesion indique "completed" para saludar al ganador. Otros pilotos pueden estar terminando su ultima vuelta y el chateo es una distraccion importante durante la carrera.


Regla de Curva 1 (T1)

Todos nos vimos alguna vez frustrados en una carrera pública y sus inevitables accidentes de curva 1. Mybroga intenta que no haya tal tipo de accidentes y espera que cada piloto hará lo imposible por mantenerse libre de problemas en la largada, la curva 1 y la totalidad de la primer vuelta. Cualquier contacto, en la largada y curva 1 serán meticulosamente estudiados. Si los 3 jueces consideran que un piloto es responsable de un accidente de cualquier tipo y tamaño, éste piloto tendrá que largar la siguiente carrera desde el fondo de la grilla. Lo que significa, no podrá clasificar.

Volviendo a pista de una salida

Si han hecho un trompo y fuera de pista, volver a ella de manera segura es prioridad. La pista debe estar libre al momento de reingresar a ella. Si ingresas de forma inadecuada y un piloto detras tuyo termina golpeandote, seras penalizado. Los puntos que hayas ganado en esa carrera o cualquier otra, pueden ser retirados.
Si haces un trompo en pista y viene tráfico, debes mantenerte quieto y dejar que el trafico pase de manera segura. Si alguno te golpea mientras estas detenido, se considerará un accidente. Si alguien te golpea mientras estas haciendo patinar las ruedas intentado volver a la carrera, sufrirás la misma suerte que en el caso anterior.

Perder la vuelta

A veces es un problema superar rezagados que no se abren para dejar paso. Hay que elegir un lugar seguro y ceder el paso.
No ceder el paso implicará una penalización. Aunque nunca se haya aplicado, es mejor tenerla por si es necesaria. Si un auto que está por perder la vuelta no cede el paso a los punteros luego de 2 curvas y dos rectas en las cuales podría haber cedido el paso, será penalizado y largará desde el fondo de la grilla en la carrera siguiente.

Mantén tu linea si el auto que te esta por sacar la vuelta está junto a ti. Y aminora la velocidad para que sea segura la superacion. No hagas movimientos bruscos y deja pasar a los lideres. Es preferible que dejes el radio ideal de pista para quien te va a superar.


Otros Incidentes

Si cometes un error reingresando a la pista, perjudicando la carrera de alguien o no permitiendo que un piloto más rápido te reste la vuelta, serás ADVERTIDO. Si esto vuelve a pasar en la carrera siguiente, serás DESCLASIFICADO de esa carrera. Si sucede una tercera vez consecutiva, serás SUSPENDIDO para participar en la siguiente carrera. A partir de allí, si vuelves a cometer el mismo error, recibirás nuevamente 1 carrera de suspensión.

En otras palabras… Demuestra cortesía a tus compañeros pilotos en pista. Intenta y corre mirando los espejos lo más posible para evitar estos incidentes. Por último, pero no menos importante, mantiene una línea de carrera constante a través de la pista si viene un auto detrás de ti con intenciones de superarte. Permite que él elija el lugar donde pasar y simplemente mantiene tu línea de carrera.

Los accidentes de carrera seguirán siendo accidentes de carrera. Pero luego de 18 Temporadas, todos tenemos una buena idea de lo que son. No esperamos que alguien se tire al pasto, etc. Cada vez que otro piloto (que pelea posición contigo) se pone detrás de ti. Pero usa la cabeza, o simplemente serás penalizado.
Bajo ningún concepto se puede decidir una carrera en un accidente con autos rezagados.

Todos los pilotos deben divertirse, demuestra respeto hacia los demás miembros de la liga, dentro y fuera de la pista, y recuerda, hacemos esto por diversión. También, no existe ningún tipo de excusas para utilizar una herramienta de cambio de motores (engine swapper utility), si se detecta un casi, el piloto será EXPULSADO de la liga.

Recuerda, si GPL deja de contar tus vueltas en carrera, tu resultado final será extrapolado del replay del servidor.
