Driver Handicaps

To help create a balance between varying driver abilities and give everyone a chance of winning through completing a mistake free race, a driver handicap system will be implemented throughout this series. The driver handicap will be a time penalty in the form of a delay to the start of the drivers race. Handicaps will be determined by a drivers rating (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze) but may be adjusted during the season if necessary to accomodate for improvements in driving ability. Handicaps will be announced before each round in the race lobby.

Driver Ratings

All drivers will be given a rating of either Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze. To receive a driver rating, drivers must complete the 1 Lap attack in the Nurburgring GP circuit exprience and the submit proof of a lap time so we can help determine a driver rating. Driver ratings may also be adjusted based on previous race performances during the season.

So all the series will start on the same day and date? Or on different times of the day? Sorry, just asking for 2 drivers that are not understanding how it will all work starting on the same day.

It will essentially run like a normal race meeting in really life, so we will usually start the night with either the Red Bull Juniors, GT Series or Prototype series then move onto the Formula Track Stars series before finishing the night with the main race category which will usually be the Touring Cars (group 2). So drivers could possibly take part in every single race if they choose to.

To help everyone understand a bit more a race night will usually look like this on a time table with the Dragon Trail event used as a reference.

7pm Red Bull Juniors events (Qualifying & 2 races)
8pm Formula Track Stars events (Qualifying and Race)
9pm Track Stars Touring Cars events (Qualifying and Races)

Nah, different series will run on different nights, so both the Open Wheeler and Touring Car series will start March 17, the Prototypes on March 31 and the GT3 series on April 14.

All good buddy, as I said, whenever you’re available we can chat

Just a short note from me, for Round 1 I will only be able to attend the Touring Cars race, will have to look a little closer but maybe not at all as that is the 2nd last round for ROOZ which I’m currently competing in. At this stage it may look like the ROOZ race will be finished up just before the Touring Cars session begins after all the supports.

Hopefully it works out that you can join us for at least the Touring Cars, I might need that head start on you for the Formula Track Stars Series :p
