Race Distance: This will vary week to week. Some races will be timed others will be laps but generally speaking a lot of variety in the race distances.
iRacing member eligibility: All members in good standing with at least a Road D 4.0 are eligible to participate in this series. You do not have to compete in all races.
Server Farms: US and Australian only
Race car setup: Open car sets so you can build your own, use a shared set from another member or use the iRacing setup that will be provided for each car participating in the series.
Race warm up: 10 minutes
Number of races and drop weeks: 20 races with 2 drop weeks
Field size: Will vary by race
Cautions: local only
Qualifying: 20 minute open qualifying session, 30 minutes prior to each race session. Your fastest qualifying time will carry to all race session you join. You do not need to qualify in order to race.
Divisions: Standard 10 divisions
Splits: Splits will be set by iRating
Gridding: Grids will be set first by qualifying time, then by iRating.
Points: Standard point system will be used. Note that for multi-class races only the class where you score the most points will be used. However you can race in all classes if you like but again only the car class in which you score the most points in a given week will be used for series scoring. That said, it is a moot point because standard iRacing scoring takes your top 25% race performances and with only 4 races per week, it is simply going to take your highest scored race regardless of car class in a given week.
