TWFM Summer Rules
These TWFM rules relate specifically to our TWFM Summer 2011 Championship series and should be read in conjunction with the TWFR General Rules and the iRacing FIRST Sporting Code.
1. All of the TWFR General Rules currently in force apply so all drivers should fully understand and be aware of them.
2. All iRacing Hosted Racing runs within the iRacing FIRST Sporting Code rules so these must apply in addition to our Legends General and Series Specific Rules.
3. All drivers must have at least an iRacing Class D licence to register for this TWFM Championship series. So to clarify this rule, Rookie level licences are not permitted to register for this series.
4. The race server will be listed as TWFR Mazda Series and NO PASSWORD will be required.
5. Pit stops are not mandatory, so these are totally at each driver's discretion.
6. For our TWFM Summer series the iRacing software will detect and govern any corner cutting based on thier track/software settings rules for corner cutting detection. iRacing may still count two wheels off the track as a single off-track incident though this will have no bearing within our TWFM racing (see Rule 8 below). However, when the iRacing software detects that you have totally cut a corner, usually with all four wheels off of the track, it imposes its own self policing penalty in the race and during Q. These penalties either force you to slow down to give back the time gained during a race, or invalidate the current lap during qualifying (NOTE this also applies even for just two wheels off track during a Q lap). These automatic penalties fully apply within our TWFM racing and failure to comply will result in the server automatically black flagging and ultimately DQ'ing you, so you have been warned.
7. ALL flags must be obeyed as per our TWFR General Rules. iRacing automatically applies black flags where appropriate and these must be obeyed within the normal iRacing rules, failure to do so within the allotted time will result in an automatic DQ for which there will be NO APPEAL.
8. Although you will incur incident points as appropriate when in any iRacing Hosted race they will not apply against your iRacing Safety Rating (SR), but drivers must still drive safely within TWFM racing as if they were still being fully applied. However, we will process TWFM race incident points to ignore simple off track incidents and put the main emphasis heavily on contact with other cars. These customised processed incident points will be used for a "name and shame" chart and in extreme circumstances maybe used as grounds for banning any unacceptably unsafe drivers.
9. Any penalty imposed by the Race Stewards following a protest will take the form of being once only disallowed to qualify at the next TWFW race the driver concerned enters. So in effect it means starting from the back of the grid. If the driver still enters the qualifying session, in disregard of this imposed ruling, then he will have to start the race from the pit lane, or else face a DQ from the race. Important: In previous seasons our Stewards would automatically review lap 1-this will not be the case this season-Stewards will only investigate based on a protest being made (Legends driver to Legends driver-and the driver raising the protest must provide the snip of the replay)
10. A maximum of 3 tows (car resets, aka "shift-R") back to the pits for full car reset repairs are allowed per race per driver.
11. Any legal car set up as available for the iRacing Mazda MX5/Star Mazda.
12. Custom skins are allowed, but not mandatory.
