  • Grid Ordering will be Random.
  • Each race will allow 1 restart to try and ensure a clean start.
  • If you cause a wreck and we need to restart then you must go to the Sin Bin which will start at the back of the field with a 2 second delay.
  • Each race will require at least 1 mandatory pitstop after a set amount of laps or time depending on race type.
  • If you need to make a pitstop early due to damage you may do so but it will not count as your mandatory pitstop.
  • No pitstops are allowed on the final lap or during the final 5 minutes of a Timed Race.

Buckets and Scoring:
  • In an effort to keep the racing as close and competitive as possible we will be continuing the handicap bucket system.
  • If you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in a race then in the following race you will be placed in a bucket that will receive a 5% reduction in power and grip.
  • If you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and started from the 5% reduction bucket you will receive 1 bonus point added to your score for that race and will be placed in a 10% reduction bucket for the following race.
  • If you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and started from the 10% reduction bucket you will receive 2 bonus points and move to a 15% reduction bucket for the next race.
  • This pattern will continue until you place 4th or lower and then you can rejoin the regular Racers bucket.

 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
 20 18 17 16 15
 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
 14 13 12 11 10
 11th 12th 13th 14th 15th
 9 8 7 6 5

A DNF due to Lag Out, Wreck Out or simply not finishing before the End of Race timer will still receive at least 5 points or 1 point less than the last person to finish the race if there are less than 15 racers at the start.
