    Racing Etiquette


    • Warnings and penalties assigned by the game are final. There will be no seperate forum stewarding as naturally players are biased towards their own result. Also stewarding is time consuming and often down to a matter of opinion rather than fact.
    • Drivers must make every effort to have 2 wheels on track at all times.
    • Drivers should race as clean, hard and fair as possible. We all make mistakes from time to time but this means you cannot force another car off the circuit. If you do so accidentally the recommended action is to give the place back.
    • Drivers are allowed to make one move to defend and should leave a car's width of space when a competitior is alongside.
    • If you need to quit a race for any reason do not crash or park your car. Doing so could cause a virtual or full safety car and dramatically change the outcome of the race for others.

    Other

    • Work with your team mate to achieve the best result possible.
    • Recording and uploading of races is encouraged.
    • Finally have fun and respect the competition and your fellow competitors at all times!
