General rules/behaviour

As with any online racing forum there are general rules and a standard of lobby behaviour that
we at SSRC expect and for the most part is normal practice for everyone.
Bullying of any description whether on the forum or within a race session will not be tolerated
bullying can be abuse of other competitors,racial abuse,taunting and verbal abuse such as taunting
and making fun of anothers ability to race.
This is a forum for all abilities and with this in mind please respect your fellow racers.
With that said it is understandable that in the heat of a track battle things can be said that shouldn't
be and as long as both parties resolve any issues off track then this shouldn't be taken any further.

At the end of the day we are all here to race and have a good time so with that in mind and with the general rules taken on board there should be no reason to go on with a hundred different rules and regulations

General race lobby rules/process

Qualifying will be setup by the lobby host for the full event, unless stated otherwise.
The session will have a set number of laps that will be specified in the Race Calendar for that series.
The result of the qualification process will determine where each driver is on the starting grid.
Fastest lap times will be taken from the lobby host at the end of the qualifying session.
Clean lap times will override dirty laps, (Forza's in game defiance).
After qualification is finished, the lobby host will then set up the race lobby and the required race settings please be aware this could take up to 15 mins for race 1 to start.

Race Starts
The lobby host will call out grid positions and as your name is called out,you may leave the grid and follow the rest of the group.
Drivers will form into their race start positions whilst completing 1 warm-up lap around the track, the pace car (1st) will hold a speed of about 80MPH / 129KPH.
Once all cars are ready and in correct grid position the lobby host will call out the permitted race start time. (Top right Race Clock on screen)

The race will only restart if 4 or more cars have been involved in an incident and have moderate damage.
Otherwise they will have to start at the end of pit exit and must not pull onto the track until the last car on track has passed (Unless drivers have stalled or have been damaged) and it is permitted it is safe to do so.

Racing Conduct
The driver in front has the right to choose any line, so long as not to be considered Blocking.  The car in front must not change their line more than once more than once and this may be seen as weaving which may result in a penalty.
It is the overtaking drivers responsibility to make any decision to pass another car, therefore must do it safely. If not they may be penalised.
The driver that is to be overtaken must be aware that if they are being passed they do not attempt to block the passing drivers line on-track. If they do, the driver may be penalised.
All lapped cars must be aware of approaching lapping cars and must use communication and pass safely. If lapped cars are found to have blocked lapping cars, they may receive penalty points from the SSRC Stewards.
Any driver to use over aggressive driving on track they will be penalised by the SSRC Stewards.

Track Limits
All cars must have 2 wheels on the track at all times. Limits are defined by the white lines on the edge of the track. This includes kerbs (White and Red rumble strips) where applicable.
Drivers who repeatedly exceed track limits may receive a penalty from the SSRC Stewards. Unless it was to avoid a collision or if another car has blocked your ability to stay within track limits.
Drivers who do not re-enter the track safely may receive a penalty from the SSRC Stewards without good reason.

The Pit-Lane
The pit-lane will be open on the lap stated by the lobby host, so that you can make your mandatory pit-stop for the race.
you MUST pit within the allocated pit window stated by the lobby host, before the end of the race.This information is also available from the race calendar thread.
Drivers must make sure all 4 wheels are kept within the pit entrance / pit exit lines. Failure to do so will result in a SSRC Steward Inquiry, if it's been raised. (You can raise an inquiry by filling out a SSRC Stewards Inquiry Form) after the race.

the above rules are the standards we will set for every race however please refer to each individual series for any variation on that series race rules and processes as these may vary.
