|1.1|| Have Fun. Rules are necessary to achieve a fair and level playing field,
but drivers should never lose sight of the fun factor. While it is easy to get caught up in the competition,
try to keep a level head. The very nature of stock car racing involves some bumping and accidents will happen.
|1.2|| The purpose of these rules is to create a clean, competitive race environment, which is as accident free as possible.
Drivers are expected to contribute to this atmosphere. I want this league to run faster and cleaner than most any other league and I need your help
to do so.
|1.3|| Drivers are expected to be prepared for their race and be able to maintain a high and low line for each track.
It is your responsibility to control your car at all times.|
|1.3a|| Admins cannot see everything, but if seen or brought to their attention Admins may enforce rules
at their discretion with or without a protest.|
|1.3b|| First come, first served on race nights. This means if you drop or are late getting
into the server on a race night your spot is not held.|
|1.3c|| It is up to each individual driver to check for suspensions. If a driver shows up and has been suspended
the driver will not be scored for that event and any cautios accumulated during that race will be added to their total.|
|1.4|| Do not rely solely on your spotter. Use your mirrors to give you real time placements of your fellow drivers.
|1.5|| Situational Awareness. Live it breathe it and know it. This will keep you and others out of trouble on the track.
|1.6|| Respect others on the track and they will respect you. If you do not the admins will get involved.
|1.7|| If you decide another driver needs some discipline you may contact the admins.
If you decide to take action yourself you will be dealt with severely.
|1.8|| Your being a Member of 30+Racing is contingent on you being able to connect to our server in a
manner that makes it safe to race with you.
|1.9|| If you do not race in any series for a season you will lose your number.
|1.10|| 30+Racing asks that you use 1 and only 1 ID, as the scoring will reflect all ID's used.
|1.11|| Numbers will be given out on a first come first serve basis.
|1.12|| All in game rules will be enforced no questions asked.
|1.13|| Substitute drivers are not allowed. This is considered cheating the points system that we have in place.
|2.1|| NO FLAMMING OR NEGATIVE CHAT WILL BE ALLOWED. ANY FORM OF SWEARING YOU MAY BE BANNED.
POSITIVE CHAT ONLY!
|2.2|| Flaming is defined as any badgering, swearing or chatter referring to an on track incident. This could be anything from "wtf, "lmao" to "not mine" to anything said sarcastically or anything negative. If you're not sure about what your fixing to say then please do not say it. Any breach of this rule is grounds for suspension or expulsion from the League. No one wants to hear this stuff period.
|2.3|| There is to be NO TYPED CHAT except Pitting this lap and Exiting pit during Green flag runs.
No other typed chat period. If you must chat please wait till the caution comes out. No Chat violations could get a reminder/warning from the admin or have penalty points or provisional's assessed to that driver depending on the severity of the chat.
|2.4|| Regular typed chat may only be used during pace laps and under caution. All chat must stop with the one to go signal.
|2.5|| You must refrain from profanity or derogatory remarks in servers, TeamSpeak, icq, email, irc or any other communication that may reflect on Team 30+.
|2.6|| It is recommended that you be on TeamSpeak. The drivers meeting and race info is given by TeamSpeak only. You can be on TeamSpeak without a mic.
|2.7|| Green flag chat is to be kept at a minimum. Some things that can be said: Pass me high/low, pitting, I am looking high/low. That kind of thing.
|2.8|| If you bring out a caution and/or in a caution after you have your car back under control call Mine or Involved with your racing name and number only.
|2.9|| Chatting under yellow after everyone gets in line and at pace speed is permitted. All non-race chat needs to stop as the leader gets to turn3 before the restart.
|2.10|| TeamSpeak under caution is not the place to discuss the actual caution incident or who is to blame or that another driver other then yourself is an idiot ect.
|2.11|| If you are on TeamSpeak and have a mic use push-to-talk (no voice activation!) only . It could save you a lot of embarrassment and/or from getting banned.
|6.1|| Only the drivers that get together and start the caution are to say "involved" or "mine". If you are a driver that is collected in the incident you are not to say "involved" or "mine". The purpose of the "mine" or "involved" is to help the admin figure out what lap and who was involved.
All drivers must be able to control their cars as well as handle the high and low line of the given track each week.
Good car control creates "Normal" racing conditions. When a driver is slow, off the pace for some reason or causes other drivers to react abnormally,
This creates "Abnormal" racing conditions.
Any driver that causes an abnormal racing condition which brings out a caution will be charged with that caution.
IE.-Driver A catches the apron while in the turn and has to slow to regain control of his car. He manages to regain control, but Driver B behind him has to slam on the brakes to miss him.
Regardless of whether Driver B hits Driver A or not, Driver A would be charged with this caution. If Driver A would not have hit the apron, Driver B would not have had to take evasive action,
and would not have spun or made contact with Driver A.
Driving lines will be looked at. If you have position
on a car and he changes lanes or causes the accident then he will be given the caution or vise versa. If you are not sure back off and try again in a lap or 2.
Breach of this rule will result in being charged with a caution.
This rule supersedes all 7.x rules.
If you cause a caution.
Self Spin caution no damage to others.
If you make contact w/ other cars which causes them to lose a position or cause damage to them.
You must restart at the end of the pack.
Accumulate 3 races with 1 or more cautions in a row you will be forced to serve a one race suspension.
Race suspension is to be served the next race.
NOTE:Blown engine. Makes it safely to apron without causing other cars damage. No penalty.
If a driver hit's another driver intentionally (regardless of damage) that driver will be suspended in all series for that season and points removed. Second time driver will be gone from league.
||If a driver causes 2 yellow flags during a race, he must park his car. If the driver continues after causing his second caution the admin will review the race and determine what lap the second caution was charged to the driver and the scoring will end there. If a driver continues and causes more cautions they will be deducted from his point total as well.
|| Whenever a caution flag waves, the driver(s) that caused the caution will only be 1 more incident from having to park his car for the evening. Drivers that cause a caution must use a chat message such as "Mine" or "involved" after the caution flies. If you are not sure if you caused the caution say "involved" please . Remember this is a requirement.
|| All incidents that involve two drivers not being sure of who caused the caution will have the incident looked at by the Lead Admin for that Series. In the event the lead admin cannot come to a decisive conclusion as to who or whom caused the caution flag, both drivers will be charged with 1 incident and they will split the penalty points.
||If for any reason a driver is off the race speed pace, that driver is expected to retire from the race. This includes, but is not limited to, being heavily damaged due to an accident or being slow due to lack of preparation for the event.
|6.7|| Bump drafting is ok but you'll be penalized if you cause a wreck doing it.|
|6.8|| There is to be no advancing of position below the white lines at Super Speedways. You may go down there for safety reasons, but no advancement or
will result in being charged a caution. The replay will need to be submitted by the offended party.
|6.9|| Keep your eyes open for race chat and trouble. An aware driver is always a better driver.|
|6.10|| Purposely stopping on track to bring out the caution will earn you two cautions.
|6.11|| Lucky dog rules for ARCA. There is no racing back in ARCA at all. The Lucky dog is given by the Sim. You will be notified by the Sim in the lower left window after the leader takes the caution.||6.12|| If the would be Lucky dog brings out the caution he will not be alowed to get the Lucky dog. There will not be a Lucky dog for that caution.
||6.13|| All drivers need to hold the lower line after the leader takes the caution to let the Lucky dog by. The Lucky dog needs to pass safely on the high side.
||6.14|| The Lucky Dog needs to position himself at the tail end of the field. Except Wave around cars. He will have to do this by going through the pits until he is behind all cars so he will be at the end of the line. It is the drivers responsibility to be at the end of the line. If the driver does not attempt to get there then the admin will give him a Stop and Go or will be scored tail of the lap he is on if found after the race.
||6.14a|| Wave around cars start behind the Lucky Dog car if there is one. If there is more then one wave around car they must line up in order they are before passing the pace car. No passing another wave around car lining back up for the restart.
||6.15|| All races will be run with 2X Fuel 1X Tires.
|7.1|| Starts and restarts are the most dangerous times of a race. Please be careful.
|7.2|| Restarts will be double file. The lap cars are expected to give way if not up to speed.
|7.3|| All drivers should maintain at least .2 between each other. It is also recommended that you stagger
until the one to go is given with the odd starting positions going low and the even numbered positions going high.
|7.4|| Yellow flag incidents will be dealt with severely. The spinning or hitting of another car during a yellow
flag condition will be an automatic penalty. These incidents will have to be brought up to the lead admin by the driver involved. The driver
who does this will be charged with a caution and or provisional the next race depending on the severity of the incident. The replay will need to be submitted by the offended party.
|7.5|| The leader of the race starts the green flag period. Passing going into turn one lap one of a start or
restarts will receive a penalty, except if your line is moving faster than the other line. You may then advance with your line past the other line.
The replay will need to be submitted by the offended party.|
|7.5b|| No passing till turn one on restarts unless there are 10 or less laps to go in the race. However you cannot pass before the Start/Finish line.
|7.6|| You also will be allowed to pass going into turn 1 with under 10 laps to go, but not before the Start/Finish line. Drivers
also remember "If we receive the "1 to go" signal with 11 laps to go in the race, we can pass into turn 1 on the restart"
