All-Wheel-Drive Winter Series 2013 - information and sign-ups


The winter is comming,in Northern part of Europe it means snow and slippery road conditions
as a result of snowing. What's the best way to have fun in this cold season? Pack out your
all-wheel-drive car and go to a lonesome icy road or frozen lake! This is how the idea of this league
has born - take LFS's both all-wheel-drive cars,use modified road sign "Slippery road" as logo,
plan a callendar to have a nice variety of racing experience and here we go - it's time for:


All-wheel-drive Winter Series 2013

The series will consist of 8 rounds - 5 of them will be run with the 490 hp FXO GTR (2 rallycross
tracks and one of each
road course,street course and oval),but 3 rounds with the "weaker"
243 hp RB4 GT (2 very different rallycross tracks and one road course). Despite not having the
"right" tyres for non-paved surface,FXR is the fastest car on rallycross tracks and it's quite
tricky to handle on gravel,giving a great challenge to driver.

Series will run on monday evenings starting at 19:00 UTC (21:00 EET / 20:00 CET),starting with
2 rounds in early/mid-december
2012,and continuing in 2013 - 3 rounds each in january and february.





* Layout of round 2 (Kyoto GP 100) available here!
** Layout of round 6 (Aston Club Cross) available here!

Each round will have a specific info post in this thread with all information of the round!
After round 6,no new sign-ups will be accepted. In last 2 rounds only drivers received at least one point in standings will be allowed to participate!


Timetable:

19:00 UTC / 20:00 CET / 21:00 EET
- 20 minutes of qualifying
19:30 UTC / 20:30 CET / 21:30 EET
- race start

Special notes on qualifying:

* In rounds 7 and 8 will be used hotlap qualifying,this means there will be no specific lenght of qualification,every driver will run alone and have outlap and 2 hotlaps. Qualifying oreder will be determined by points standings - the highest ranked driver will start his laps last,lowest - first. Race start will be approx. 10 minutes after qualifying.
* In rounds 1-7 only best 24 qualifyers will be allowed to start (in 2 tracks due to grid limits,in others - to equal round conditions),but in last round full 32 car grid will be allowed to start.
* If there is no max allowed grid,drivers championship top 10 drivers will be allowed to start from pits (12 seconds after initial race start) if came late and missed qualification.

Rules:

As this is the second season for this league in international level and we are not accepted from higher instances to be good enough for own forum subsection,we will not make a mile long rule book that noone will read completely anyway,we will rely on common sence of competitors to behave and follow the basic Rules of Clean Racing. There will not be an admin in server who will specifically observe drivers behaviour during the race. If any incidents reported/protested,we will take individual approach to each of them to decide best resolution or punishment if needed.

Basic guidelines as a reminder:

Blue flag - you may not deny/block a passing manouvre of laping car and try a repass right after it. In qualification it means - stay off racing line and don't disturb drivers on hotlap.
Shortcuts - 2 wheels on track at all times,in controversial KY GT case we will use LFSW hotlap system rules,where also the paved green area counts as legal surface.
Pit exit - allthough there will be no mandatory pitstop in this league,pit exit lines will have to be respected! Everyone caught crossing pit exit lines with more than 2 wheels will receive 10 seconds penalty added to finish result. In last round,which is held in KY Oval also pit entry must be respected - driver have to enter pits on apron before turn 3.
Chatting - it's not completely outruled,but still drivers are expected to concentrate on racing. In case of too much chatting while ignoring messages asking to cease chatting,a penalty may be given. In case of any abusive/offensive language a penalty will be given!
Lags - if there are any connection issues,driver will be asked to improve (close internet using programs). If driver will be considered as dangerous due to unstable connection,he will not be allowed to participate.
Hacks/cheats - if used,you will not race with us. Ever. As simple as that.

Possible penalties:
WARNING - any minor infraction that needs to be noted without penalty. Warned driver might receive bigger penalty for other infractions.
10s added to finish time - minor infractions like pit exit line violation,too much chatting.
30s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in last 2 rounds) - medium infractions like causing avoidable incident[s] without serious consequences.
60s added to finish time (2 laps penalty in last 2 rounds) - medium infractions like causing avoidable incident[s] with consequences to other drivers (like damage,multiple position loss).
Disqualification for 1 or more rounds - heavy infractions,multiple incidents,unsportsmanlike behaviour. After serving disqualification,driver will automatically carry a "warning" for the rest of season.
Series exclusion (including ban for any other events run under Race Green Events control) - serious infractions like intentional/revenge wrecking,event sabotage and any other malicious act.

Would love to participate, but at 2 PM EST I can't make it on time. Would I be able to join the server at around 19:30 and make the start of the race?

* If there is no max allowed grid,drivers championship top 10 drivers will be allowed to start from pits (12 seconds after initial race start) if came late and missed qualification.

That's all,what can I say to you - there are no wildcard starting spots in AWS,so you have to post a lap in qualifying in 1st round,finish in top10,in next round you can start from pits,finish in position to keep top10 in standings and so on! Nothing impossible! Cool

We'll see what happens. Hopefully I'll make it in time for the race at least, but it will be tough with school getting out 10 min into qualifying... (7 min. drive home)

I'll sign-up just in case I can make it
