Placement in Class
- Drivers will be assigned to a class designation PRO or AM. This classification will be handled by the admins and will use existing classifications from the GTE/GT3 series with adjustments made as needed.
- New Drivers that join the series after the pre-season will be evaluated and placed in a class based on iRating and other information available to the admins – and are subject to be moved by the administrative team at any time to keep competition balanced.
- Any driver moved between classes will receive the equivalent of points they would have scored in previous races in the alternate class.
Drivers are allowed to make a single car change a SINGLE time voluntarily during the season, however, all points earned to date will be forfeited when they are moved to the new car or class.
Drivers that wish to change cars will need to notify the series Administrator before the server opens on race night. If the Administrator finds a car change without notification, points for that race will be removed and the driver DQ’d from the standings.
Drivers are encouraged to pick a car in the pre-season period and stick with it.
More than one car change will not be allowed.
Rules and Regulations
- The CMS Incident Review Process will be used for driver issues not able to be resolved between the participants.
- All iRacing Sporting Code and CMS General Competition and Community Rules will be enforced at all times in the series as published and current on both the iRacing.com and cmsracing.com websites.
- All members are required and expected to have read and understood the rules and regulations and will be held to the standard of CMS and iRacing at the most professional level.
- It’s common sense, behave like an adult, treat others as you would expect to be treated and you will do very well with CMS.
Class Numbering Requirements
- 0-199 numbers for Pro Drivers
- 200 Numbers for AM Drivers
- To make things easier, all drivers will use the same number in both the Tuesday night series as well as the Wednesday night series.
- The Administrators will set the numbers using the League Administrator controls in iRacing, and any new drivers will be asked a preferred car number prior to assignment.
This series has been created for one purpose only, friendly competition. While we have rules in place, we also don’t intend to add complications or pressure to perform on race night. We all started sim-racing from scratch, and regardless of your experience, we want everyone to feel welcome here. So please, come in and make some friends and we hope you have a great time!
