iRacing SPORTING CODE is in effect and CONTROL the races. Things like black flags WILL NOT be cleared except under rare occasions, like getting forced into the pits during an accident or driving through the pits to aviod one. If you get a black flag, you probably did something wrong and need to pay the penalty. That's racin'!
1 : Use of profanity at any time will not be tolerated. We realize that some times things just come out, so if that happens, an apology goes a long way towards avoiding a penalty. If you are the kind of person who blurts out things without thinking, just try to remember to stay off the mic until you are under control.
2 : No chatting during qualifying, and in race chat should be kept to necessary race related chat. It is very tempting to strike up conversations during cautions, but PLEASE keep it to a minimum. The ADMINS are on TEAMSPEAK trying to administer wave arounds and sometimes need to ask for info in the iRacing chat which can become very difficult when several other conversations are going on.
1 : No racing back to the yellow but at the same time, don't slam on the brakes when there is a yellow. Coast down to a reasonable speed and then do what iRacing tells you.
2 : The leader will control the start of the race and he is responsible for knowing what is a legal start. Race Starts and Restarts MUST be STARTED on the GREEN LIGHT. Black flags incurred from starting too early will not be cleared so the leader must be careful and so must everyone else!
3 : Brake checking during yellow flags and on restarts will not be tolerated.
4 : No blocking or changing one's racing line in an attempt to "cut off" and prevent a faster car from passing. One defensive move is generally accepted. For example, if you move low to protect the inside line, you must stay low and give the driver behind you the outside if he wants it.
5 : Lapped cars "must" give way to lead lap cars if they are "significantly" faster. It is a race, so if a lap down car is 'competitive' and is trying to not go down a lap, that's OK. But if it's close to the end, especially with less that 10 laps left where there are no 'wave arounds', PLEASE let the leaders go by.
6 : If you are the cause of three cautions, you must park your car for the remainder of the race. Do not sit in the pits.
7 : "Lucky Dog" (wave around for first car 1 or more laps down) is in effect but NOT in the last 10 laps.
8 : RESCEPT ALL OTHER DRIVERS
9 : Have FUN
