This is the most important part of the league briefing drivers need to understand! If your application to drive the in league is accepted, we expect you to be present during all races of the season unless you provide an absence report with a valid excuse to the staff. If you happen to miss out on an event and go missing in action afterwards without giving any notice the race staff reserve the rights to terminate your licensed member status on RaceDeparment.

In cases where the rules have been broken, it is up to the drivers to report the violation. The staff encourages this and will only investigate incidents that are reported by drivers.

Cutting will be monitored by the staff member present at each event, and will be penalised after each event.

No incident report = no investigation = no penalty

A report can be sent to the staff via private message to Xavier de Carvalho.

Incident reports must contain the following:
o Name of the league: VWSR - Clio S4
o The name of the reported driver (the violator)
o A link to a youtube or vimeo movie/video file that shows the incident from various angles and perspectives.
o A short description of the incident, without rant, along with the timestamp.

You must always send the report with your own forum account. You can only send a report if you were actually in the race. Reports from an outsider will be not be taken into account.
After the report is sent and recieved, the staff will then investigate the incident. Incomplete reports will not be taken into consideration.

Reports must be sent between 1-3 days after the finish of the race. No sooner and no later. Reports that come in early or late will not be considered.

Finger pointing, as well as naming and shaming other competitors or staff will not be tolerated! A penalty of 5 championship points will be docked to the offending person, said person would also not be allowed to participate in qualifying for the next event.
