    1 - General Rules
    a) The GPTCC is an AI championship where the game races for you!

    - If you're interested in joining the series please use the template below. If there is a space available you'll be immediately added to the roster.

    Driver Name:
    Driver Nationality:
    Driver Number:

    b) Whilst there are no strict rules on activity all participants are expected to stay active. If a driver remains inactive for several races they run the risk of losing their seat, regardless of whether there are people waiting to join or not.

    c) It is every participants responsibility to read the rules. Not having read the rules is not a viable excuse in disagreements.

    2 - The Racing
    a) Each race weekend will feature a single free practice session and a single qualifying session, both with a time limit of 30 minutes.

    b) The racing will be split into three separate events, lasting between 15-20 minutes (20% race distance) approximately.

    c) Race 1 will use the grid from qualifying, the Race 2 grid will use the results from Race 1 and Race 3 will be a reversed grid race using the results from Race 2

    d) Drivers who retire from Race 2 will start from the back of the grid in Race 3 in the order in which they retired.

    e) The series will use the following points system:

    1st - 20
    2nd - 17
    3rd - 15
    4th - 14
    5th - 11
    6th - 10
    7th - 9
    8th - 8
    9th - 7
    10th - 6
    11th - 5
    12th - 4
    13th - 3
    14th - 2
    15th - 1

    Pole Position - 2
    Fastest Lap - 1

    f) In the event of the occurrence of a game breaking bug - i.e. pitstop bug, drivers running out of fuel - the race results will be taken from an appropriate time, usually one lap prior to the bugs appearance. However if less then 50% race distance has been completely the results will be declared null and void

    g) The calendar will be chosen via a democratic vote with the top 5 most popular tracks making up the calendar

    h) The GPTCC reserves the right to alter the calendar where necessary

    Liveries are somewhat limited as there's no template which is publicly available for either mod. Whilst I won't be able to do anything about this for this season I'll look into this should the series continue.

    Once we've got a majority in favour of one mod or the other I'll make an album of all the available liveries so you can all start choosing.

    On the team side of things you're free to choose your team mates and team name, all I ask is that you choose the same/similar livery just for convenience sake.

    Also number 1 will be reserved for the series champion :)
