    Stewarding: Please see the stewarding thread
    Actions available to stewards: Time Penalty, Drive Through Penalty, Qualifying/Race Ban, DSQ, Removal of in-game penalties

    Track Extension:
    - Drivers must make an effort to have 2 wheels on the track at all times, if any driver is found to be cutting or extending constantly either in qualifying or the race can be reported to the stewards. Line rulings will be monitored by the game limits, however, if an exploit is discovered and people are using it to gain an advantage, retrospective action may be taken.

    Clean racing:
    - You must at all times make an effort to race clean as possible, this means you cannot force another car off the circuit. If you do, the recommended action is to give the place back.

    - You are allowed to make one move to defend and move back at the corner but you must leave a car's width.

    - If car has a significant part of their car alongside you they are entitled to some space.

    Qualifying:
    - If you are not on a hotlap, you must allow drivers behind on a lap through and not block them, anyone found blocking will be reported to the stewards.

    Race:
    - If anyone disconnects between the end of qualifying and the start of the race and cannot re-join, the race will start under a manual safety car where the driver in pole position will lead the pack in qualifying order around after a new lobby is created, the disconnected driver will have to start from the back of the field.

    - If more then 25% of the field disconnect in the first 2 laps, the race will be restarted under manual safety car conditions.

    - Drivers who fail to finish the race but complete 75% of the distance will be classified in the position the game calculates.

    Other:
    - Drivers are encouraged to record their races and any reports made to stewards will be aided by taking relevant evidence into account.

    - Proximity arrows and map: We highly recommend you use proximity arrows and a map in order to avoid incidents where you don't see drivers side by side or on an out-lap.

    - Drivers are advised not to 'rage-quit' as A.I. cars are causing issues for other drivers on the circuit.

    Team Orders/Teamwork:
    - There will be a max of 11 teams in this league, and it is inevitable that at times, the two drivers in the same team will work together, especially near the end of the season. This is to be expected, please do not spam the forum complaining of being held up or seeing a driver be assisted by their team mate. This is part of racing.

    Lag/Connection:
    - Each driver has a responsibility to make sure their connection is stable enough to race with everyone, if there is an incident caused from an individuals lag, they will be responsible either through a penalty or being blocked from racing. We highly recommend you use a ethernet cable to race as a wi-fi connection can lack stability at times and can result in jumpy behavior on track.

    Race Restarts:
    - In the event that a race has to be restarted, which will be dependent upon the situation at the time, the restarted race will start behind a manual safety car with the pole sitter controlling the pace as everyone gets into position during the first lap, all relevant information in regards to a restart will be communicated via a PSN message to all drivers. The game-SC will be turned off in the event of a restart to avoid any issues on the first lap and all drivers MUST start on the tyre they qualified on in the top 10.

    Rule Additions Edit 03/05/2017

    1. No one is to press start after qualifying/before formation lap except Andrew, Mikey, or Harry (or whomever is hosting that day). We will give you around 1 - 1.5 minutes after being placed on the grid to help set your strategy or have a quick break/stretch before the race begins.

    2. You must refrain from using the PSN group chat during ALL race sessions. If you must vent some anger or disappointment about a disconnection, crash, or other issue, please use the forums for that outlet.
    2a. There will be no badmouthing, cursing, or demeaning other drivers whatsoever in the group chat. Keep your cool, have a mature attitude, and address any issues with you have with the individual privately.

    Those that fail to adhere to the above addendums to the rules will be placed in front of the stewards and dealt with accordingly.

    considering that we are running safety car, i'd say that there should be a penalty for rage quitting, as a rage quit might bring out a safety car and a race might be completly turned around

    I am working on negotiations with him as we speak. That's the main reason that I've put the number of drivers out of 20 for this season, as I want a commentary team.

    If he accepts, then that will be up to him. He will have creative control over that aspect.

    Guys, two things we will be adding to the rules :

    1. No one is to press start after qualifying/before formation lap except Andrew, Mikey, or Harry (or whomever is hosting that day). We will give you around 1 - 1.5 minutes after being placed on the grid to help set your strategy or have a quick break/stretch before the race begins.

    2. You must refrain from using the PSN group chat during ALL race sessions. If you must vent some anger or disappointment about a disconnection, crash, or other issue, please use the forums for that outlet.
    2a. There will be no badmouthing, cursing, or demeaning other drivers whatsoever in the group chat. Keep your cool, have a mature attitude, and address any issues with you have with the individual privately.

    Those that fail to adhere to the above addendums to the rules will be placed in front of the stewards and dealt with accordingly.

    We want this to be a fun experience for all, and I think we are all adult enough to contribute in to keeping this place light and calm.

    I've cleaned up some bits and pieces in the first post of this thread -- including the information on the hosts and race times.

    More updates to this first post are to come.
