    All racing incidents will will be reviewed by an independent group of staff who hold no affiliation to this league in any way, shape or form. All incidents will be viewed on their merits, and the decisions made by the stewards will be respected even if you disagree with the outcome.

    Submitting a Report:

    Reports are submitted to the league director via Personal Message, who will then forward them to the stewards. Reports must be submitted within 24 hours of the conclusion of the race. If you would like a racing incident to be looked at, then please make sure you conform to the procedure and standards that are expected of an incident report. This means:
    • Your name, the round number, and the lap of the race on which it occurred.
    • Clear video evidence of the events leading up to, during and proceeding the incident (total length should be ~1 minute).
    • A variety of camera angles from both your opponents, and your own perspective.
    • A text description of the events.

    Penalties:
    The race stewards will have many different penalties at their disposal. For racing incidents there are time penalties and point penalties that can be issued depending on the severity of the incident(s).

    As a means of achieving consistent officiating, track cutting during the race (more than two wheels leaving the white/yellow lines and gaining an advantage) will be systematically judged. Drivers who breach rule 6.1 without 100% throttle lift off for at least 0,5 second, will be penalised.
    • 5 cuts = Reprimand
    • 6 cuts = 5 seconds added to your total race time.
    • 8 cuts = 10 seconds added to your total race time.
    • 10 cuts = 20 seconds added to your total race time
    • >10 cuts = 20 seconds added to your total race time + 5 seconds for every additional cut.

    Round 1

    No time penalties have been applied after determining that exceeding track limits was never done with any malicious intent. Additionally, the time gain from running over a white line is negligeable, if not harmful in this combo.

    No reports have been received.

    Round 2

    No time penalties have been applied.

    HOWEVER

    After looking at the replays, it has become very clear that track limits have been extended over the white lines by a very large number of drivers, particularly in Graham Hill Bend, which was named as one of the hotspots. This corner can gain a large time advantage.
    The reason why I am not applying time penalties at this time is because the server side results have unfortunately been compromised and I do not have a reliable timing.

    Therefore, consider this message a formal warning. Track limits will be enforced more strongly in future rounds.

    No reports have been received.

    Round 4

    No time penalties have been applied. All drivers have remained within the designated track boundaries in the hotspots for most of the race. (i.e. nobody cut more than 4 times.) Good job!

    The turn one pileup is hard to pinpoint on a single car/driver, so I won't be applying any penalties there. There are two separate incidents that incite massive confusion and then it took a while for cars to untangle themselves.

    Thanks for a mostly clean race gents!
