All-Wheel-Drive Winter Series 2019 - 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:

Each round will have a specific info post in this thread with all information of the round!
After round 5,no new sign-ups will be accepted. In last round 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 3 and 4 hotlap qualifying will be used,this means there will be no specific lenght of qualification,every driver will run alone and have outlap and 2 hotlaps. Qualifying order will be determined by points standings - the highest ranked driver will start his qualifying run last,lowest - first. Race start will be approx. 10 minutes after qualifying.
* If there is no max allowed grid (40 cars),Drivers Championship top 10 drivers will be allowed to start from end of the grid if came late and missed qualification - noone else will be allowed to start without qualifying. In round 1 this top 10 will be taken from last season's final standings.
- To qualify for the race drivers have to set a laptime during qualifying session within 112% of best laptime of the qualifying session. This does not affect championship's top 10 drivers as they may start the race without qualifying or with laptime outside 112% of best laptime.

AWS Drivers Champion - awarded to a driver with the most points scored through all 6 rounds,including attendance bonus points
AWS FXR Master - awarded to a driver with the most points scored through 3 rounds run with FXO GTR (rounds 1; 3 and 5)

Rules:
We will not make a mile long rule book that noone will read completely anyway,so 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. Track is mostly marked by white lines,rumble strips or at least defined by paved surface,while also curbs count towards track. Overtaking outside track (for example in Kyoto oval on apron) counts as illegal and will be penalized in case of protest.
> 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 round 3,which is held in oval track also pit entry must be respected - driver have to enter pits on apron before final turn.
> 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! Non competing observers may not use chat at all!
> 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.
> Button clutch - is forbidden! Manual clutch is allowed only in combination with H-Shifter. Everyone caught using it will be penalized for unsportsmanlike behaviour with increased penalty for every next offence.
> 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 illegal passing,pit exit line violation,chat misconduct.
> 30s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in rounds 1,3 and 4) - medium infractions like causing avoidable incident[s] without serious consequences or unsportsmanlike behaviour,illegal passing.
> 60s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in round 5 / 2 laps penalty in rounds 1,3 and 4) - medium infractions like causing avoidable incident[s] with consequences to other drivers (like affecting damage,multiple position loss) or unsportsmanlike behaviour.
> 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.

Round 1 info
All-wheel-drive Winter Series 2019
Round 1



Sunday,6th January
19:00 UTC / 20:00 CET / 21:00 EET


The new year is here,sunday the right challenge follows - most of the AWS seasons have started with NewYear City Challenge,the race with all-wheel-drive cars in the urban environment of South City. This year the faster FXR will be used and that in the short configuration named Classic. 57 laps around the track means 57 times keeping the car off outside wall in 1st curve,57 times hard braking towards the tight lefthander,57 escapes in the narrow chicane and 57 right side tyre heavy loads in the fast last turn. Or less of those depending on the driver's pace and skill to keep the car off walls. Right car setup is important,good focus on race - even more.

The current signups list is missing all the previous champions,including the defending one. Still 4 days time for that to change,if not - AWS might get it's 8th different champion in 8 years,as there are still no returning overall champions in this league,allthough Dzidoris was able to defend his title in the minor award Cross Challenge last year. 1st round will not decide the fate of any title,but good start of the season will surely be helpful.

Round info:
Track: South City Classic (SO1)
Laps: 57 (116km)
Car: FXR
Previous winners : B2マ FasT (2018 / RB4), LLM.V Laguckas (2017 / FXR), A.Valta (2016 / RB4), CoRe A.Laipnieks (2015 / FXR), 22 S.Jurvansuu (2014 / FXR), CoRe V.Pitkänen (2013 / FXR), spdoFade (2012 / FXR)

Server info and password will be PM'ed during saturday (european time) to all entrants,until then server remains publically accessible:
