If you are a clean driver, looking for a good group in our region. Please send me a PM to start the application process, or join our Discord Server where an admin will meet with you!

Future events and championships in other sims and car classes are also planned. We are eagerly anticipating the addition of AMS2 support within the simracing.gp platform for an open wheel based championship series!

Our racing championship aspires to realism. Players are permitted to use the cockpit or bonnet view, chase cam is prohibited. All driving aids are disabled, except auto-clutch for those who do not have a clutch pedal.

A single pit stop with tire change will be mandatory. Refueling is permitted, but not required. Whilst in the pit lane, there is a 50km/h speed limit and the pit limiter function is manual.

Drivers are expected to stay within the confines of the track. Any driver found repeatedly cutting, to gain an advantage, will be subject to a time penalty assessed by the stewards. Any penalties issued by the server during the race, are to be served by the driver within the allotted time.

Overtaking is to be done when it is safe to do so. Drivers are permitted to defend by changing position only once per straight. A driver attempting an overtake must have obtained position (front wheels beside other driver) prior to the next corner brake point and be able to hold the inside line throughout the corner. The driver on the outside has the responsibility to give the other driver room.

Re-entering the track after an incident, must be done so safely and not cause further incidents. Damaged vehicles which are unable to maintain pace are to stay off the racing line while returning to the pits.

All flags are to be obeyed, and lapped cars issued a blue flag must move off the racing line to allow lapping car(s) to pass as soon as it is safe to do so.

Any incidents are to be reported at the end of the race. Race Stewards (3) will be assigned after each race, and are to move to a separate discord channel to review if penalties are to be issued, determined by majority. Criteria for a punishable offense will be:
  1. Was the collision avoidable?
  2. Did the collision result in a loss of position(s), and / or damage to the victim(s) requiring pit for repairs, or obvious negative effect on lap times.
The penalty will be graduated depending on the severity of the offense, as follows:
  1. 20 Second Penalty
  2. 40 Second Penalty
  3. 60 Second Penalty
  4. Disqualification
Decision by the Race Stewards is final and cannot be appealed. Please demonstrate good sportsmanship, even if you do not agree.

Any incidents which appear intentional, will be flagged for review by our Community Admins for potential further disciplinary action.

We use Discord for our communications, and push to talk is required for events. Drivers are to assemble no later then, and be logged onto the server 15 minutes prior to qualification start. Please respect our admins by not speaking when they are making announcements. No talking during qualification and race sessions.

When the race event is completed, please stay on the voice channel if you can, to be available to steward if necessary, and chat with our members. Our group first and foremost is about building camaraderie and having fun!

Our community is North America, western region based. Championship events are scheduled for Thursdays at 6:00pm pacific daylight time (PDT) practice start. Qualification starts will be at 7:00pm PDT. Drivers are required to be on Discord and the event server 15 minutes prior to Qualification.

Gentlemen’s Club Sim-Racing has been around for a few years. We are a small community, which aspires to camaraderie and clean racing. Our motto is, “A good friend doesn’t want to ruin another friend's race”.

The following ballast system will be in place for this series:

Fourth place finish, 25kg removed. Fifth place finish, 50kg removed. Sixth place finish, 100kg removed.

One additional point in the standings will be issued to the pole position winner for each event.

Our championship series aspires to realism. Players are expected to use the cockpit view. All driving aids are disabled, except auto-clutch for those who do not have a clutch pedal.


A single pit stop with tire change will be mandatory. Refueling is permitted, but not required. Whilst in the pit lane, there is a 50km/h speed limit and as a reminder, the pit limiter function is manual.

Drivers are expected to stay within the confines of the track. Any driver found repeatedly cutting, to gain an advantage, will be subject to a penalty assessed by the stewards. Any penalties issued by the server during the race, are to be served by the driver within the allotted time.

Most of the responsibility for avoiding incidents rests on the trailing driver. Please be patient and wait for the right moment before attempting an overtake. Give yourself a buffer space with other drivers, so you have time to react if they do something unexpected or brake early. Especially in the first corner.

At the start of the race, we will be using a lane system. Each driver must stay on their side of the track until a single file racing order has been established. Prior to the start of each race, the race director will state the maximum number of corners this will apply to, after which the following overtaking rule will be in place. Note, that when zero amount of overlap remains between cars (and some buffer space), the trailing car is expected to observe single file order and tuck in behind the leading car while entering the next corner, even if this is prior to the first corner. Lead cars when unsure, should stay in their lane. The lane system is not an invitation for dive bombing.

Overtaking is to be done when it is safe to do so. Drivers are permitted to defend by changing position only once per straight, and must be done so safely, so as to not be considered blocking.

A driver attempting an overtake while entering the braking zone (so as to not be considered dive bombing), and at corner entry:
  • If the overtaking car does not have its front axle next to the leading car’s cockpit, the overtaking car must adjust its speed to tuck in behind the leading car with minimal interruption to the leading cars line.
  • If the overtaking car has its front axle next to the leading car’s cockpit, the cars are considered being side-by-side. Both cars should adjust their lines to avoid contact and provide room for the other car.
  • If the overtaking car is ahead on corner entry and the formerly leading cars front axle is behind the overtaking cars cockpit, the formerly leading car must adjust its speed to tuck in behind the overtaking car.
In short, when the passer isn’t ahead, he gives up the corner. When you’re-side by-side, continue racing until one car is clearly ahead (often at a subsequent corner). When the passer is ahead on corner entry, the formerly leading car accepts the pass and concedes the position.

Re-entering the track after an incident, must be done so safely and not cause further incidents. When vehicles vying for position are approaching a vehicle that has re-entered the track safely, but is not yet up to full speed, drivers are expected to exercise caution and patience until they are past the slower car or it is up to speed.

Damaged vehicles which are unable to maintain pace are to stay off the racing line while returning to the pits.
All flags are to be obeyed, and lapped cars issued a blue flag must move off the racing line to allow lapping car(s) to pass as soon as it is safe to do so.

Any incidents are to be reported at the end of the race in the Discord incident-reports channel. Our stewards will review each incident and report their decision within 24 hours. Incidents not reported, yet spotted by stewards are subject for possible review. Criteria for a punishable offense will be:
  • Was the collision avoidable?
  • Did the collision result in a loss of position(s), and / or substantial damage to the victim(s) requiring pit for repairs.
The penalty will be graduated depending on the severity of the offense, as follows:
  • Negative 2 Point Adjustment
  • Negative 5 Point Adjustment
  • Negative 8 Point Adjustment
  • Disqualification (all points gained from event removed)
    ** No penalty issued will result in more points deducted than gained in the event.
Drivers who have 3 similar in nature and high severity offenses (at the discretion of our stewards) within the series, may be asked not to participate in the next race. Once returned, if they have another, they will not participate in another race. Further incidents may result in removal from the series.

Decision by the stewards is final and cannot be appealed. Please demonstrate good sportsmanship, even if you do not agree.

Any incidents which appear intentional, will be flagged for review by our Community Admins.

We use Discord for our communications, and push to talk is required for events. Drivers are to assemble no later than, and be logged onto the server 15 minutes prior to qualification start.
