    LiveRacers Timing & Scoring

    LiveRacers will be used to record the finishing order of all races.

    Endurance Rules Overview

    1) Drivers must take the checkered flag to receive any race points (except for contingency points).

    2) Drivers can switch to "the other" class at any point in the series, but all points acquired in the class they are leaving will be forfeited.

    3) GTE drivers can switch to a different GTE car as many times as they like per race.

    Race Comms

    Both NARS Winter Series will use Discord for race communications.

    If you have not already done so, please download the Discord App (NOT the html web browser version) and confirm with a friend your settings are working. If you need assistance, send Doug Atkinson a PM.

    CMS Discord information is available here:

    1) Discord is required for the drivers meeting during warmup. Then you're welcome to leave the channel if you want.

    2) The drivers meeting will be verbal over Discord.

    3) Comms is required, but only to monitor the drivers meeting and monitor race control during the event. You do not need a microphone if you do not want to speak.

    4) A request to drivers to please be brief in you communication on Discord. One sentence then quiet is requested.

    5) Abusive and/or profane in-game chat, Discord or forum post language or deliberate crash into competitor's car may lead to that driver receiving probation, suspension or ban from the league.

    Custom Skins

    1) Custom skin uploading is welcome and encouraged, but please log onto the server a couple days before the race so your dds file will get uploaded properly. If everyone waits until race day, it may clog the server and necessitate that we disable custom skin uploading.

    2) Please use only single car .dds files, not multi-packed .mas files.

    3) Please use your CMS car number listed or apply for one in this thread:

    Orange Zone

    1) Each race will use Orange Zones

    2) Orange Zones will be posted within the specific event thread.


    Penalties can be applied one of 3 ways:

    1) rFactor 2 system delegated penalties (all must be served, and are not in admin control).

    2) Upheld Incident Reports via Race Review Team.

    3) During the race for a Start infraction via Race Review Team.

    CMS League Rules and Regulations will be in effect for the 2019 NARS Winter Series

    Additional Driver Notes

    1) Don't Press Esc! UNDQ is available on the server. If a driver gets a DQ. DO NOT TOUCH ANY KEYS ESPECIALLY THE ESC KEY! An admin will see you are DQ'ed and will UNDQ you soon as possible.

    2) IMPORTANT! If it is still early light turn your headlights on before moving out of the garage or rF2 will DQ you again!

    3) Open setups, but we encourage everyone to share!

    4) It is STRONGLY advised drivers reboot their computer just prior to joining the server on race day. The track is a whopper, and can drag down the computer memory and resources so some extra precautions are necessary.

    5) Don't even think of using a WiFi connection. Only Ethernet cable connections permitted for events.
