    Incident Report.jpg
    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 @Joseph Wright or @Ole Marius Myrvold via Personal Message, who will then forward them to the stewards. Reports must be submitted within 48 hours of the conclusion of the race. If you would like a racing incident to be looked at, then please make sure you follow the procedure and uphold the standards that are expected of an incident report. This means:
    • Your name, who else is involved, 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 or more if necessary).
    • A variety of camera angles from both your opponents, and your own perspective.
    • A copy of the replay file may be requested, so please have this at hand or send it alongside the original report.
    • A text description of the events.

    In race penalties (live-stewarding):
    There will be a Steward during the races. The steward will watch the race and apply penalties to rule infractions as needed. The penalties can range from a drive-through to a total disqualification from the race.
    All the penalties applied will be announced on Teamspeak, therefore making TS mandatory for every driver.
    Crashes will also be penalized as follows:
    • Racing Incident = No warning, Race Control will announce it as a racing incident
    • Minor incident = Warning
    • Moderate incident = Drive through
    • Major incident = 30s Stop and Go
    • Double incident = 60s Stop and Go
    • Intentional wreck or third consecutive = Disqualification
    All warnings and penalties will be announced by Race Control via TS. You will be referred to by your racing number, followed by your surname.

    Post race 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). If the incident has already been penalized during the race, the post-race penalty won't be considered unless specified by the stewards.

    If a time penalty is not deemed fitting, Point penalties will be applied as follows:
    • Minor = 1 point
    • Moderate = 5 points
    • Major = 10 points
    You may also be removed from qualifying for the following event depending on the severity of the incident, or suffer a grid penalty in the following race. Any rule breaches in qualifying may also lead to a grid penalty.

    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 1 second, will be penalised.

    Track cuts will be handled by Automobilista anti cut system they have. But if you witness excessive cutting that benefit an opponent, please report to the organizers as an incident report.

    Once a report is handled we'll verify with the other driver(s) for their side(s) of the story and upon that, come with a conclusion ASAP.

    Important note: Remember that not all incidents are ill intended, some of them might be accidental and the driver eventually will apologize either on the forums or through a PM or on Teamspeak. Just send a report if sure that neither happened and you felt prejiduced by it.

    *As this was a non-points race, time penalties where applied instead of point penalties.
