Overview

The Touring Car Championship is the league's Touring car series. It is heavily orientated towards TCR's series concept and thus mirrors the usual TCR championships and weekend schedules. As it's the pinnacle of IVRC it will be held every Saturday of a IVRC TCC meeting. This series is ran in Automobilista Motorsport Simulator.

Race weekend

On Saturdays, drivers have a 10-minute qualifying session. The qualifying session decides the grid order for race one, run over a time of 20 minutes. After a short break, the same procedure repeats for race two, which covers the same distance.

Rules

Section 1 – Qualifying:

  • 1.1 – Do not ruin someone’s fast lap when you are running an out lap or running slower. When you do this, race control might put you to the back of the grid after qualifying. If you are impeded during a lap, please mention it to the Race Control.
  • 1.2 – If you are not able to come back to the pits after your latest lap it will not count. If the last lap was your fastest, the time will not be counted and you will be given a 10 Second penalty to race 1. Of course this includes pressing “ESC” after a lap, too.
  • 1.3 – If you crash and your engine stalls or you loose a wheel (no matter if you make it to the pits or not) your session is over! That means you are not allowed to do runs anymore. If you crash directly after the finish line because you have no fuel anymore your last Laptime will not count.
  • 1.4 – Leaving the pits under red will always result in a DSQ.
  • 1.5 – Lining up at the red light before the Qualifying begins has to happen in a single lane. Drivers who overtake other cars might be penalized after the event!

Section 3 – Starts:

  • 3.1 – We will have standing starts, as what is usual in TCR series.
  • 3.2 – Restarts will be made. When 30% or more of the drivers crash out in Lap 1, the Race will be restarted! But only once.
  • 3.3 – If you crashed out in Lap 1, which means you are not able to continue the race, mention it in the ingame chat ONCE. If you start a discussion in the chat after you’ve crashed you will be Disqualified or maybe penalized at your next start. Do not abuse the ‘crash command’ if you have only minor damage!

Section 4 – Racing:

  • 4.1 – Do not take someone out of the race! If you did, continue the race as usual (or be nice and wait), the Race Control will decide about the incident after the race.
  • 4.2 – Giving a brake test to someone is strictly forbidden, race control probably will put you one lap down or DSQ you after the race when they see it while watching the replay.
  • 4.4 – Speeding or even overtaking under yellow flags will be penalized!
  • 4.5 – Ignoring blue flags or flags at all will be penalized!
  • 4.6 – Using the lights or horn during any official session is not allowed.
  • 4.7 – It is mandatory to stay on the TS3 server during the races!

Section 5 – After the race:

  • 5.1 – Race control will watch the replay, within one week after the race. Remember that they are likely to see anything, so DON’T infringe the rules listed above and below.
  • 5.2 – The following reasons will be automatically looked at post race:
  • 5.2.1 – All fastest laps in Qualifying.
  • 5.2.3 – All incidents which cause a retirement.
  • 5.2.4 – All incidents reported to the stewards (see 5.3 about reporting incidents)
  • 5.2.5 – Any other incidents which may have been seen by the steward reviewing the race.
  • 5.3 – Drivers will have until 23:00 GMT on the Monday night directly following the race to report the incidents.
  • 5.4 – Don’t get mad if you’ve received a penalty or a warning. When you will behave like a child in those situations you will probably get banned for one or more races.
  • 5.4.1 – If you do disagree with the penalty: politely appeal by commenting on the corresponding post and then all of the stewards will have a meeting to decide if the original decision was made.

Section 6 – Race weekend schedule:

  • 6.1 – As the servers are opened up 24/7, there will be only an unofficial 45 minutes Practice session before the Qualifying starts. Session times can change from event to event. Possible changes will be announced in the race specific threads.
