    Default CMS General Rules Update - How to Serve Penalties

    To WRS Admins and Drivers:

    Recently we've updated our penalties. How to serve them requires prescribed action by the driver who is complying with it.
    These are the new additions to CMS rules that everyone needs to be familiar with:


    7.2 To serve a penalty certain steps need to be followed:


    7.2.1 NQ (No Qualify): Driver has to sit out qualification session, he is not allowed to get on track.


    7.2.2 NQDT (No Qualify Drive Thru): After complying with NQ part, driver will start the race or formation lap from the position where ever the sim places him. He is not allowed to race anybody and gain position(s) until he serves his penalty. If there is another driver positioned behind him (without a penalty) he will let him pass after a standing start. If it is a rolling start all drivers will keep their positions during formation lap.
    At the end of first lap or formation lap the driver announce his/her pit entry in chat box and perform the drive thru.


    7.2.3 NQS&G (No Qualify Stop & Go):Same as article 7.2.1 until pitlane entry. After driver enters pit lane he continues with allowed pit lane speed to the end of pit lane passing all the pit boxes, and he stops before getting on pit exit lane, making sure to leave enough room for other cars to be able to pass on passing lane (the most outer lane in pit area), comes to a full stop then take off.


    7.2.4 NQS&H10-30-60 (No Qualify Stop & Hold 10 Seconds, or 30 seconds, or 60 seconds): Same as article 7.2.3 until stopping at the end of pit lane. Driver then counts the given penalty time before taking off. Counting the stoppage time properly will be driver's responsibility.





    The new rules will force the drivers serve their penalties outside the track designated pit boxes. This way there will be no mix-up with any scheduled or unscheduled pit stops.

    CMS League wide General Rules & Regulations (Required Reading)

    Thanks

    Jon

    I think this part should be described in more details, just to make it clear.

    What if someone spins, do you have to stop on track and wait for him to crawl out of the gravel?
    what if two cars crash in front of you, and it is not clear for you if those cars can continue the race at all, do you have to stop and wait for them?
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

    @Julian, Answer to first question: If someone spins rules dictate that someone need to re-enter the track safely.
    From: CMS League wide General Rules & Regulations (Required Reading)

    4. Pit entry, Pit Exit and Re-Entering the Course
    4.7 Drivers who have experienced a spin, an accident or who have gone off course are required to take the appropriate precautions when proceeding back onto the race course. A driver attempting to rejoin the circuit must attempt to get the best view of oncoming traffic, and must re enter the course gradually and with caution in order not to impede drivers who are approaching.
    You (the driver with penalty) just keep your position relative to the cars in front.

    Answer to second: Whatever happens in front of you you don't have to wait just because you have a penalty!. The rule dictates that the driver is not allowed to race anybody and gain any positions. The rest is normal racing conditions. If the driver in front can not keep his car on track or crashes and you pass him that is not because you were racing him.
