Using the following general rules:
-The guiding principle of this racing series is that we're having fun while learning to race better. Our primary focus should be fun; our secondary focus should be professionalism. Our tertiary focus should be a sportsmanlike competitive challenge.
-All cars should have car numbers
-All drivers are welcome to create their own livery, however, please aim to keep the livery designs somewhat professional; lude, obscene or otherwise out-of-place liveries may be rejected by series officials.
-The drivers in this series will range from semi-professional racing drivers to amateur racing drivers. This means, you may suffer a spin or crash that will be caused by another driver. Please be patient and understanding, as this is not necessarily an intentional crash, and, typically, will not be intentional.
-No unnecessary/avoidable car-to-car contact. Absolutely none. Racing incidents may happen, but should be as gentle as possible, and entirely unintentional. Apologies for unintentional crashes are appreciated.
-Overtakes must be fair to overtaken driver and overtaking driver alike
-For standing starts, you must remain fully stopped until all of the lights are out. Jump starts are detected in-game and are punished with a drive-through penalty. Drive-through penalties are served in the pit lane within 2 laps of the infraction.
-You must not force another driver off of the track, even to prevent a pass
-You must not complete an overtake off of the paved surface, unless you are forced off of the track by an opponent - then you can complete the pass and return the position after, to avoid a crash
-If you are exiting the pits, or otherwise re-entering the track, please remain on that side of the track until you are back at racing speed. You may also wish to check mirrors before rejoining to prevent a crash
-Drivers are encouraged to use Assetto Corsa mods for things like radar or mirrors, in order to better see what is happening around them
-Any paved racing surface. including curbs, can be used. Any unpaved surface cannot be used. If the lap time is invalidated by driving on that paved surface, it is also not allowed to be used. Penalties may be applied if a driver repeatedly exceeds track limits to gain a lasting advantage.
-A driver can choose to cede position or time back to rival drivers as needed to redress an advantage so that it will not be deemed a lasting advantage - within 1 lap.
-All results are tentative until finalized.
-Any driver can submit a "Falcon Fairplay Notice" by emailing email@example.com to report something that is unfair privately, or in the Falcon Autosport Discord if the intention is to release it publicly. Please use discretion about whether it is something that should be privately discussed or publicly discussed.
-Penalties will only be applied after both drivers have been spoken to; however, refusing to speak to race control stewards following the race will not be an approved method of avoiding a penalty - refusing to speak to race control stewards would result in the applied penalty being the most strict penalty.
-Race length will be approximately 20 minutes for the sprint race, 20 minutes for the feature race (reverse grid of sprint race finish)
-Qualifying will be done via a time trial leaderboard during the week before the race - submit best lap times with replays to firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain your grid position
-All races will be standing start. Please ensure that you add enough fuel to make the full race distance accordingly; you will need two extra laps of fuel than actual race distance to be safe.
At the following time:
Sundays, 7:30 PM Ontario time - when the clocks change, so do our races. They will always be Sundays 7:30 PM Ontario time. Please aim to be ready about 10-15 minutes early.
