Only registered users can send messages, register or login

You are not logged in.

We do not want to over officiate our racing with numerous Rules & Regulations but it is important that we have guidelines that all members can operate under.

Racing Name

When you register and post on our forum please use your forum name as your racing name, to prevent confusion for the Admin / Moderators

 

Driving

 Drive with consideration to others, be courteous and friendly, and respect your fellow racers, without them you don't have a race.
 

Redressing

 It is very important that if you cause an accident or accidentally knock a fellow racer off the track you must redress, by allowing the driver/s involved to regain their positions ahead of you. This must be done within 3 laps of the incident . If there are only one or two laps left in the race then you should make every attempt to redress straight away, before the race ends. Incidents will be viewed by Moderators and penalties imposed for failure to rectify these situations
 

Before Re entering the Track

 If you have a spin ( When you have a spin) everyone does !! just be very careful when re entering the track make sure you are not going to inhibit another racer with your actions. When leaving the pits make sure it's safe to enter the track.
 

First Corner Awareness

 The race doesn't finish at the first corner, be sensible sit back, brake a little earlier be aware that as a stream of vehicles heads into a corner the further back you are the earlier you'll have to break. There's nothing worse than totaling the car on the first corner and sitting watching the rest of the race.
 

Race Start

 Common Sense, you will have a minimum of 5 laps to win the race, trying to win off the Start line usually ends in damaged vehicles and lost places. It's your responsibility to avoid accidents especially running into the back of a slower starting vehicle. Race restarts will only happen when 3/4's or more of the field are taken out. There is a maximum of 3 restarts in any race and is solely the decision of the admin. No restarts will occur after the lead car has finished 1 lap.
 

Headlights

 Headlights are not to be used unless it is a night race or you are about to LAP another vehicle, If you are simply racing for track position then flashing your headlights will incur a penalty
 

REDRESS REDRESS REDRESS

 Pass with care. If you aren't sure you can pull off a move to pass an opponent, then don't do it. Take your time to work out where to try
the move. If you are passing someone on the inside while entering a corner you must have your car at least 1/2 way alongside the other
car to have the right of way. If you try to pass around the outside then exiting the corner you must be fully alongside the other car,
otherwise they are entitled to take the normal racing line, which may include pushing you wide. In the event that they do start to take you wide, you should fall back behind them as safely as possible.

If you attempt to pass another driver and tag them during your pass, gaining an advantage, allow them to regain the position, even if it means you lose positions to drivers not involved in the incident. Basically, if you stuff up a pass, you may pay a bigger penalty.

Defensive driving. Swerving on straights to block another driver is not allowed, a positional change to ensure and protect your line for the corner are fine. You may move once to defend your position. EG - on a straight approaching a right hand corner, you are allowed to move to the right hand side of the track to defend the inside line for the upcoming corner, you are now committed to that line into the corner, you are not
permitted to move back onto the racing line.

Take care re-entering the track. Whether it is from pit lane or the sand pit, it is the responsibility of the car that is re-entering the track to avoid any collision.

Blue flag. If you get flagged, it means that a car that is leading you is coming up behind. Ensure you give him the racing line and allow an uncontested pass as soon as is practical. This doesn't mean you must leave the track to allow him thru, It means you should allow him thru as soon as possible.

Yellow flag. If you get shown this, there is an incident ahead. Do not try a passing move under yellow. Take extra caution til the area is clear

Abuse of other drivers will not be tolerated, if you have a gripe with someone report it to the RSC after the last race.....Nibiru, RobZee, TASRACER, Holdfast, Rims (RIP)

If we all use commonsense there will be no need for penalties and everyone can enjoy some fun racing.

Have Some Fun (Rubbin is Racin, Smashing them into oblivion is not)
