Discussion in 'RD Rally Championship' started by Rick Bamford, Jun 1, 2011.

Not open for further replies.
  1. All rules have been writen with 3 main things in mind.

    1/ To ensure fair and enjoyable competition for drivers of all skill levels.
    2/ To provide a clear ladder of progression and awards for all drivers to climb and improve as they do.
    3/ To encourage drivers to continue to compete and learn for the entire championship and the RallyClub events.

    RaceDepartment Rally Championship Season 3

    Format

    The RaceDepartment Forum Rally Championship (here after refered to as RDRC) will be run over an 8 round calendar. By comparison to the RaceDepartment RallyClub these events will be endurance events running between 12-15 stages per rally. Stages will mostly be used twice each rally and BTB stages will also be included. All rules from the RallyClub and RSRBR will stand unless they are super-seeded in these rules. The RDRC will run as an RSRBR championship event (accessed via the "Public Sessions" botton in the RSRBR start-up screen) and use Accumulating/Reduced car damage. Between service points it will not be possible to change tires so suitable selection for the following GROUP of stages is imperative.

    Schedule

    The RDRC will run once every three (3) weeks in place of that weeks RallyClub event and will comence on the weekend of July 16th-19th

    Round 1 - 16th-19th July (Rally of Norway)
    Round 2 - 6th-9th August (Coff Harbour Rally)
    Round 3 - 27th-30th August (Rallye Terre De IÁuxerrois)
    Round 4 - 17th-20th September (Kouvola Auto-Ralli)
    Round 5 - 8th-11th October (Rally Costa Brava)
    Round 6 - 29th October/1st November (Rally Mont Blanc)
    Round 7 - 19th-22nd November (Hokkaido Rally)
    Round 8 - 10th-13th December (Rally of Wales)

    Sessions

    As with the RallyClub, 3 time zones (EU/US/OC) will be made available on each day, starting from Saturday to Tuesday with the times from each session being combined to find an overall winner. Sessions will be numbered 1-4 in regard to the day they are driven on. Each driver MUST nominate which session the wish to drive in when they sign-up in the Round sign-up thread.

    ONLY the sessions that drivers nominate for will be created. There will be NO extra sessions will be created once the round commences. The ONLY exception to the creation of extra sessions will be in the case that the organisers make an error with session creations or should a server issue force competitors not to be able to drive.

    A driver does NOT have to compete in the session they first nominate for, however, once the drivers FIRST SPLIT time is registered their results from THAT session will stand. This means that if a driver experiences a server problem between logging in and starting the first stage they can join another session without penalty.

    A driver may compete in other sessions for practice, however the results from the first session they record a time in will be taken as official.

    Championship Entry

    Drivers must sign up using the following entry form and post it in the sign-up thread. A driver may sign-up for the championship at any time during the season, even if there is only one round remaining.
    *****************************************************
    Driver : (RD Name)
    RSRBR name: (RSRBR sign in)
    Number : (Drivers may select a number lower than their ranked number)
    Car : (car and car pack)
    Driver Grade : (please refer to the grading list for your grade)
    Team : (If no team is nominated leave blank)

    I have read and understood the RDRC S3 rules and agree to abide by them for the duration of the season. (type YES here)
    *****************************************************
    Round Entry

    Each driver should enter each event to nominate which session they will compete in. Entries for each round will CLOSE at 11:59pm server time the Thursday prior to each round to allow the organising team to post and official entry list and be able to organise the session creation. If a driver does not enter by the close of entries they can still drive in the rally but they will not be able to score points. Entries should be placd in the following format.

    Driver name : RSRBR name : Session

    Championship


    During both the first and second season of the RDRC, the organising team has noted the number of drivers that are either joining the championship for a short time and leaving or competing at a level that is below their skill level. It is felt that there are many reasons for the numbers dropping during the season and these include:-

    a/ Drivers of very high skill level coming into the championship and having no CLEAR and FAIR way of moving to the higher sections to remain almost unchallenged in their class, making others feel as if they have no chance of success.

    b/ Drivers of high skill level coming into the championship but having too great a step in skill level to move up.

    c/ Drivers under-estimating the speed, commitment and consistency of the drivers in the championship and becoming unsatisfied with their results.

    d/ Drivers under-estimating the speed, commitment and consistency of the drivers in the championship and selecting a car class that puts them in direct competition with the top rung of our championship.

    These occurrences are things that we wish to address and with the indroduction of the following changes it is felt we have.

    It is very important to the team here that we provide a championship that gives enjoyment to all drivers, a challenge for all skill levels and a clear ladder of progression that all drivers can climb and be moved through as they improve their skills, moving up to the next level. Due to the increase in participation during Season 2 a new format is requiered. Season 3 of the RDRC will offer a new driver grading system as well as new car classes. It is felt that these changes will rectify most of the current objections and issues. Even though it may restrict drivers initially, for those that continue to compete in the championship it will mean they will be competing on a level field with drivers of equal skill level........................untill they get to the top. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE BEAT SEBASTIEN LEVRET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Car classes

    Rookie :- N3 car packs

    J-RDRC :- A6/A6K/R3 car packs

    Production Cup:- N4/N4_S2000 car packs (excluding Skoda Octavia, Audi A3, Renault 5)

    A1-RDRC :- A8/A8W99 to 02 car packs (excluding Audi A3, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 7, 8 and 9)

    A2-RDRC :-A8W07 & 08 car packs

    Drivers can change car class twice during the season however if they change car classes any points obtained will NOT be tranfered.

    Driver Grading System

    The restrictions on classes are for RDRC events only. During RallyClub events drivers must obey the car classes stipulated during that given event.

    Grade 4:-
    * These drivers are limited to Rookie and J-RDRC classes
    * Drivers joining the RDRC for the first time start as Grade 4

    Grade 3:-
    * Grade 3 drivers are limited to Rookie, J-RDRC and Production car classes.
    * To become a grade 3 driver you must compete in 3 rallies at RaceDepartment (RDRC or RallyClub). This move is automatic.

    Grade 2:-
    * Grade 2 drivers are limited to J-RDRC, Production Cup and A1-RDRC car classes.

    * To become a Grade 2 driver you must have

    • Driven in 6 RDRC rounds in a row from the start of season 3
    • 5 rounds during either season 1 or 2
    • Finished 10th or higher among the Grade 2 clasification in one event
    • 5th or higher in Champions league RDRC season 2 in one event
    • Win Grade 3 for a season.
      (This rule can seam very complicated, however due to the differences in system from season 1&2 to season 3 we have had to modify to qualification details for each season. It will be clearer in season 4)
    • Should a Grade 2 driver not score grade points for 2 seasons they will drop to Grade 3 the following season.

      Grade 1:-
      * Grade 1 drivers are limited to Production Cup, A1 and A2-RDRC car classes.
      * To become a grade 1 driver you must score an outright championship point in the current or previous season, or have won 3 RallyClub events.
      * Grade 1 is the top Driver Grade. If a Grade 1 driver fails to score a point during the season then they will drop to Grade 2 the following season.
      * The Overall RDRC Champion shall remain grade 1 for the following 5 seasons regardless of them competing in any events.​
    • It will only be manditory for a driver to change grade during a season if they move from grade 4 to 3, or if they qualify to move 2 grades from their original grade as at the start of the season. You MAY move if you qualify and WANT to however.​
    • Once the first round begins a driver may choose to change car and/or car class twice during the season. If a driver is requiered to change grade and in doing so MUST change car this will not count as a swap. If a driver chooses to change grade after qualifying for a move, any car change will be counted as a swap.

      Teams Championship

      In addition to the Driver Grade and Car classes, a "Teams" Championship will be conducted. Each team MUST consist of 2 drivers, both driving the same car but do not have to be in the same driver grade. A team name may be changed at anytime. Once the championship has started however, it must be posted in the sign-up thread as the following (Old Team Name - New Team Name). Teams points will be taken from the Driver Grade the members are in and combined to provide a teams score. Should a driver be required to change grade and therefore change car, or elect to withdraw from the championship (and posts in the sign-up thread that they will withdraw) a replacement driver can be selected for the team, provided the new driver is allowed to drive the team car. The team should post the change in the sign-up thread in the following form

      Team name: (NAME/GRADE of departing driver) is to be replaced by (NAME/GRADE of replacement driver) from round (?).


    • Teams must be registered before the start of the first round of the championship.


      Drivers must Sign-up in the Championship sign-up thread before they will be able to score points for the championship. Here you must state your Name, car, team (if any), RSRBR name and driver grade. A driver can also request a number, as long as it is below their ranked number from the previous season. A championship entry list will be posted on 25th of June stating all drivers in ranked order entered by that date. Any driver entering after that time will be given the next availible number regardless of previous participation. This is to allow enough time for those creating skins for drivers to place the correct number of the car.

      Points System

      Points tables will be run for​
    • Overall​
    • Rookie​
    • J-RDRC​
    • Production Cup​
    • Grade 2​
    • Grade 3​
    • Grade 4​
    • Teams Championship​
    Each driver will appear on the table for their car class AND their driver grade. This will allow each driver to compete against drivers of equal skill and against drivers in equal cars, something for everyone.

    1st - 25
    2nd - 18
    3rd - 15
    4th - 12
    5th - 10
    6th - 8
    7th - 6
    8th - 4
    9th - 2
    10th - 1

    Parc Ferme

    As RSRBR2011 does not offer the option of NOT saving a replay, the top 5 drivers in each CAR CLASS will have to submit the stage replays to the organisers within 5 days of results being posted. 2 RDRC directors will view the replays and must come to a unanimous decision regarding legality.

    Should a driver been seen to be taking an illegal line or cut they will:-

    1/ 3 illegal cuts/lines or less during one rally or not submitting replays after the round = Warning

    2/ 4 illegal cuts/lines during one rally = disqualified from the event.

    Should a driver be disqualified twice during the season they will forfit all points from the championship and not be able to score again untill the following season.

    Note: An RDRC director may NOT review their own replays.

    Non-Original Stages

    During the course of the championship, a selection of non-original stages will be used. In an effort to make sure these stages run smoothly in the event themselves, these stages are listed below to allow any RDRC driver to test them completely. Should a driver experience difficulty running these stages because of random failures or high graphics level requirements they should report this to the event organisers no later than 6 weeks prior to the start of the event using that stage. In the event that an RSRBR update is released in the period 2 weeks prior to the event and refer to a stage being used, that stage will be replaced or cancelled by the organisers. Should a stage be released during the year that the director believes should be included in a rally, 6 weeks notice must be given prior to it being used to give ample time for testing. As adequate time will have been given for all drivers to make sure these stages work for them and their system, NO leniency will be given for drivers failing to finish a stage or rally due to technical difficulties, power, system or hardware failures or just giving up. NO re-runs will be permitted under ANY circumstances. It is the drivers responsibility to ensure their system is updated and running smoothly, not the directors.

    Mlynky Snow (Slovakia stage pack)
    Peklo (Slovakia stage pack)
    PTD Rallysprint (World stage pack)
    Laitse Rally Park (BTB World stage pack)
    Versme (World stage pack)

    RSRBR Updates

    During the season RSRBR and rallyesim.fr will release updates to the RSRBR2011 mod. Should an update be released during the weekend of a championship round it is strongly suggested that a driver DOES NOT update their system untill after the round has taken place. In the past these updates can fix problems while creating others. If a drivers up dates their system and experiences problems with running the championship round due to this, they will not be given any lieniency. The team reminds all drivers that it is THEIR responsibilty to make sure their system and copy of RSRBR is working without issue.​

  3. RDRC S3 Championship entry list:

    The ranked entry list will be released on the 1st of July to allow for skins to be finalised with the correct number. After that date, entries will be numbered in the order they are received.

    Entry list as of 15th July 2011:

    [​IMG]
     
  4. As the championship has not started yet, we can still change a couple of rules.

    It has been pointed out that the grade 2 qualifying criteria should be changed. I will not post it in the main rules post as it already looks confusing and clutered (something that would only be the case this season as 2 of the 5 criteria won't apply for season 4)

    The added qualifying criteria for Grade 2 will be:

    A driver has finished in the top 3 in one RallyClub event.

    Keegan Buckley : Moves to Grade 2 - After reviewing the results from round 8 of last season it was decided that while Keegan could not score points due to not signing up for the championship (therefor not being able to move to grade 1), he did manage to qualify for grade 2.

  9. Updated Season 3 rules:

    These rules will not effect the championship currently. They are clarifications only.

    * Should a Grade 2 driver not score grade points for 2 seasons they will drop to Grade 3 the following season.

    * The Overall RDRC Champion shall remain grade 1 for the following 5 seasons regardless of them competing in any events.

    * Once the first round begins a driver may choose to change car and/or car class twice during the season. If a driver is requiered to change grade and in doing so MUST change car this will not count as a swap. If a driver chooses to change grade after qualifying for a move, any car change will be counted as a swap.
