All-Wheel-Drive Winter Series 2014 - 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 2014

Seeing the lowering activity of racers in LFS and lack of interest for longer leagues,it has been
decided to shorten AWS season for this year - the series will now consist of 5 rounds - 3 of
them will be run with the 490 hp FXO GTR (
street course, rallycross track and oval),but
2 rounds with the "weaker" 243 hp RB4 GT (
road course and rallycross track). 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 be moved to sunday evenings starting at 19:00 UTC (20:00 CET / 21:00 EET) - 2 rounds
in january
,2 in february with final round in first sunday of march.



Series schedule:
05.01.2014. Round 1 - NewYear City Challenge (FXR @ South City Long Rev., 27 laps / 108km)
19.01.2014. Round 2 - Aston Grand Prix (RB4 @ Aston International GT*, 13 laps / 100km)
02.02.2014. Round 3 - Blackwood RXGP (FXR @ Blackwood Rallycross, 41 laps / 74km)
23.02.2014. Round 4 - Jamaican Trophy (RB4 @ Fern Bay Rallycross, 33 laps / 66km)
02.03.2014. Round 5 - Winter 200 (FXR @ Kyoto Oval, 67 laps / 201km)

Special notes on qualifying:

* In round 5 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.

Rules:

Even this is the third season for this league in international level,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.
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 round) - medium infractions like causing avoidable incident[s] without serious consequences.
60s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in 3rd round / 2 laps penalty in last round) - 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.
