We’re quite a laid back bunch here, but at the same time, rules are needed to make sure that fair and fun racing is adhered to at all times.
If you cannot attend a race for whatever reason, that is not a problem, but we do ask that you attempt to attend as many races as you can. If you miss three races in a season without prior warning or reasonable explanation afterwards, you may be removed from the league.
We do ask that everyone records their race, so that in the event of an accident or collision, the stewards can investigate and act accordingly. However, if there is no video, absolutely no action will be taken, under any circumstances. There must be clear evidence to penalize anybody. If you’re not sure how to record your race, please ask someone in the league and they will assist you.
1. Be Respectful
Here at PSF1, we do like to have a lot of laughs, and the group chats are usually full of activity. However, there is a line, and we do ask that you do not cross it. It is up to you to figure out this line but if deemed to have crossed it, you may be spoken to or removed from the league. This applies especially to your league admins who work very hard to ensure the league is run smoothly and successfully. This applies on track too. Be respectful to the drivers around you and adhere to the racing rules at all times.
2. Session Times
F1 is currently scheduled for 8pm UK time, and F2 and F3 are scheduled for 6pm UK time. Please do not be late, as we will not wait for you. We are willing to delay the session start time by 15 minutes if you give us adequate warning, but other than that, the session will start on time. Invites will usually be sent 10-15 minutes before.
3. Start Procedure There is a mandatory two minute break at the start of every race. This is to allow people enough time to change and edit their strategy. The two minute break will start as soon as everybody is loaded onto the grid, and only the host or dedicated person will press X after 90s has passed. Nobody else should press X. A 10 second penalty will be added to the time of anyone failing to abide by this rule. Reprimands will be given if you DNF in the race.
4. Qualifying You are not required to set a qualifying lap if you do not wish to. Please do your best to avoid cars on their fast laps and stay away from the racing line where possible when you are not doing a lap.
4b. – If you wish to retire, you MUST drive back to the pits and retire. Absolutely no retiring on track. You will receive an instant 5 second penalty and 3 points on your licence if you retire on track in qualifying.
