NO Racing on the Apron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is absolutely NO racing/passing on the apron @ any track. The only exception to this is to avoid an accident ahead of you.

Having 2 or more tires on the apron will be in violation of this rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You will not be penalized if you accidentally go on the apron, only if you show intent to make a pass, keep your position or improve your lap times.

 

Blocking
As blocking and protecting your position is part of racing there is no longer a lap rule on blocking.
BUT if you excessively block or cause a wreck while blocking you will be penalized.


If someone has a run on you let them go and then follow them to see why they are faster than you are.

Penalties for excessive blocking:
1st Offence = Warning (You will receive only 1 warning and this goes for all RTG series)
2nd Offence =
Reckless Driving 1st offence penalty. (
Scored last in the race results.)
Penalties will become more severe after your 2nd offence.


If you are found guilty of constantly blocking you may receive a suspension.

Your Blocking causes a crash = -50% of your points plus penalties listed above.
Blocking Definition: To make abrupt lane changes in an attempt to stop another competitor from passing you.

If you are a lapped car and found guilty of blocking a car on the lead lap in an attempt to stop them from racing a car ahead of you. You will receive the penalty's posted below.
1st Offence: Parked for 1 week from all RTG Nascar Events.
2nd Offence: Suspended for 1 full season from all RTG Events.
3rd Offence: All done racing here at RTG.

 

Stopping on the track
There is NO stopping on the track under caution to go get a drink, use restroom etc.

If you need to do any of these please pit and stay in your pit stall while doing so. 

You will receive a black flag if you stop on the track
under caution just to keep your position.

If you stop on the track to retire under green flag or during a wreck under caution you will be charged an Incident.

Under Green: There is NO stopping on the track to retire. If you do so and the caution comes out you will be charged with intentionally bringing out the caution. If the caution does NOT come out you will still be charged an incident.

Under Caution or during a wreck: You must make an honest effort to get back to your pit stall or at least safely get to the apron or infield.
This will be looked on an Individual basis to see if you could safely get off the track.

 

Intentionally bringing out the caution.
Any driver who intentionally brings out the caution will be parked for 2 weeks from all RTG events.

If a driver is found guilty of this in MSR or TNT you will be parked for 2 weeks in all RTG events.

Examples: Stopping on the track to retire...Intentionally blowing your motor...Intentionally spinning someone out.

 

Weaving Under Caution
There is No weaving back and forth under caution.

You will be warned the 1st time and black flagged there after.

 

Damaged cars that are slow and a hazard on the track
If an admin feels a damaged car is a hazard to the other drivers the Admin may ask them to park.

 

Team Tactics
Here at RTG we race as individuals. We know drivers are more apt to help their friends or league mates and that is completely acceptable.
But we will not tolerate unethical Team Tactics to boost your team stats.

So if you use team tactics to show a lack of respect to any other driver in any RTG race on the track OR off, you and your teammates will be asked to leave.
This includes using social media and streams to put down any driver from any RTG race that was not part of your team.

Here @ RTG we Race Hard, Race Clean, Race with respect and treat our fellow drivers/members with RESPECT.
If you can't do these simple things on the track and in this community your team will be asked to leave.

We have always been an open server that welcomes most drivers. We also have a long history of visiting other servers. We never have and never will turn around and trumpet ourselves here or other places and say things like "our drivers beat your drivers", etc. We consider EVERYONE as simply "drivers" and "friends".

We don't judge or discourage anyone who wants to be part of any team anywhere, and welcome any team driver members. We simply ask that you follow our rule and treat all other drivers with equal respect when racing at RTG.

 

Careless, Reckless and Unsportsmanlike Driving and Conduct

First off, this is racing, not demolition derby, not bumper cars.  This does not mean you can wreck out someone because they are passing you or are faster than you.  If you can't handle losing a race now and then DON'T RACE.

If you "screw up" on the track or in TS an apology to the effected driver(s) or Admin(s) goes a long way toward resolving conflicts before they escalade into severe penalties. 

Careless, Reckless and Unsportsmanlike Driving will NOT be tolerated here at RTG.

If you are found guilty of any of these during the season you will receive the following penalties.

This is NOT the order the penalties will be handed out.
If the offence is serious enough you can be charged with
"Reckless Driving" even though you have never received a "Careless Driving" Penalty.

Careless Driving/TeamSpeak Conduct
Definition:
This is the 1st tier of penalties for minor infractions such as outbursts in TS, ignoring Admins and on track infractions. This is basically a warning to drivers to calm down or you will be advanced to the next tier of penalties.
Refer to the TeamSpeak rules for the 2nd TeamSpeak offence.

1st Offence :
Warning to a -1 lap down penalty depending on the severity of the offence.
2nd Offence :
Will be a -1 lap down penalty and be scored behind all cars on that lap.
3rd Offence : Will be considered your 1st Reckless Driving Penalty and carry its penalty.

Reckless Driving

Definition:
This is the 2nd tier of penalties and they carry stiffer penalties.
Reckless Driving Examples:
Dive Bombing, Continuously Driving on the apron/under yellow line to try to pass, unnecessary door slamming and any other on track antics that Admins consider Reckless Driving.


1st Offence :
Scored last in the race results.
2nd Offence :
Suspended for 1 Week from all RTG events.
3rd Offence :
Will be considered your 1st Unsportsmanlike Penalty and carry its penalty.

Unsportsmanlike Driving And Conduct
Definition:
This is the 3rd tier of penalties and the most severe penalties.
Unsportsmanlike Driving/Conduct Examples: Intentionally wrecking a competitor, Blatant disrespect towards fellow drivers or Admins and any on track antics or conduct that the Admins consider Unsportsmanlike.

Penalty to be determined by the RTG Owners.

 

Retaliation of any form on the track will not be tolerated here at RTG.

1st offence : Suspended from all RTG events for 1 week.
2nd offence :
Suspended from all RTG events for 1 month.
3rd Offence :
Look for another league to race in because you are all done racing here at RTG.

 

*** If at any time a Race Director or RTG Admin feels your actions on the track or in Team Speak are not within race ethics you may be black flagged, penalized, parked or Suspended.***

 


Incident Rules:

We have a 3 Incident and park it Rule. As we are all adults here you are expected to do this on your own.
You also get 1 free solo self spin as long as it doesn't effect any other driver.

The 1st solo self spin on dirt will NOT count toward your 3 and park.
BUT if this effects any driver other than yourself it will count as an incident.

Examples: Driver hits you or you hit another driver. A driver gets damage trying to avoid you.

The 1st solo self spin still counts as a -1 penalty point.

 
Penalty's if you do NOT park yourself.

#1. 1st offence will result in you being parked the next week or DQ'ed if it's the last race of the season.
You will also be on a 1 and park-it when you return.

#2. 2nd offence in a season will result in you being parked the next week and having to run the rest of the season in that series with a 1 Incident and park it penalty. If there is less than 3 races left in the season this penalty will continue the 1st 3 races in the next season.

#3. 3rd offence in a season and you will be suspended from all RTG events the rest of the season. If there is less than 3 weeks left in the season you will be suspended for the 1st 3 weeks of the following season.

***Not parking: If you don't park yourself your scoring will stop at the lap of your 2nd incident.***

*** If you intentionally cause a wreck between the checkered flag and the back straight you will receive an incident and moved to the EOLL in scoring.***

Incident definition: Any action by you or your internet connection that results in the Yellow flag coming out whether it be a self spin, mechanical failure or contact with another car.

An incident caused by your warp or your connection issues will count toward your 3 and park-it.

An incident which is a result of a mechanical failure such as a blown gear or blown motor, will NOT count toward your 2 incidents and park-it but you will still get an EOLL if you are still in the race.

A caution caused by a blown tire will count as an Incident toward your 3 and park-it.


1st 2 Incidents in a race
If you are the cause of an Incident or think you are the cause you will get an EOLL penalty.

If you fail to serve your penalty you will get a -1 lap penalty and be scored behind all drivers on that lap.

Failure to serve your Incident Penalty 3 times in a series in a season will result in being put on a 1 and park for the rest of the season in that series.
Year long series will be by segments.

 

3rd Incident in a race
You must park it for the night and will be on a 2 Incident and park until you complete an incident free race in that series.
If you fail to park after your 3nd incident your scoring will stop on that lap and you will be parked the next week. You will also be on a 2 Incident and park until you complete an incident free race in that series.

4th Incident in a race
If it is found in the replay review that you have 4 or more incidents in 1 race you will be parked for 2 weeks in that series for the 4th incident and 1 additional week for every incident after that in that race.

 

Getting off 3 and park-it
You must complete a clean race to get back on 3 and park-it. Retiring from a race early for any reason will NOT get you off the 1 and park-it.
The ONLY exception would be if you're crashed out of a race and it's NOT your fault or a mechanical failure.
If you are on a 1 and park for the remainder of a season because of having 5 incidents or did not serve 3 incident penalties you can not get off a 1 and park until the next season.

You will be permitted to Qualify while on a 3 and park.

 

Racing Deals.
We realize that occasionally in the post race review an incident needs to be called a racing deal. But this is only after multiple Admins have reviewed the incident.

If an incident is called a racing deal there is NO post race penalty for any driver involved.

But remember just because a driver('s) call an incident a racing deal during the race, it doesn't mean it will be called a racing deal in the post race review.

 

Incidents caused from pinching down or up.
We are not saying no one can pinch someone down or up BUT, if an incident happens while doing so YOU will be charged with the incident.

This will be called the 1/2 a car width rule...If you can't give someone at least a 1/2 a car width of room to move and an incident happens between you two then you will be charged with the incident.

 

Incidents not bringing out the Caution
The Driver who was spun must make a complaint/protest post race to the race director.

If you spinout a driver and the caution does NOT come out you will be required to do a drive thru or get a -1 lap post race penalty.
This will also count as an Incident toward your 3 and park-it.

If this happens on the last lap of a race the guilty driver will be moved to the EOLL of the lap they finish on.


Post Race Incident Review by the Drivers
If the Director or a driver feels an Incident might be controversial they may request the Incident be reviewed directly after the race conclusion.

There must be a minimum of 5 drivers reviewing the Incident and be done in a private room in TS.

The vote will be done by the Replay Committee vote rules. (All Directors have access to this forum)

The results of this review will be Official and can NOT be protested.

The Director will post "reviewed by drivers" for this incident in their incident report.

All Incidents will NOT be reviewed like this, Only possible Controversial Incidents.

Drivers involved in the incident are NOT allowed to be in the review room. 

 

Protests

If you're protesting an incident that has been charged to you, you must protest within 48 hrs of the incident report being posted in the forum.

Protests must be made by the driver charged with the incident, 3rd party protests will NOT be reviewed.

Incident reports will be posted within 72 hrs of the conclusion of all races. 

All protests must be directed to that nights race director.

See who the race director's are here.

If you lose 3 protests @ RTG in 1 season, you will lose your right to file any more protests for the remainder of the season @ RTG.
 
You must provide a replay clip from YOUR replay with any protest.
Replay clips must be a minimum of 30 seconds before and after the incident being protested.

 


Race Rules
We use game rules with the following exceptions

Practice
There will be NO goofing off during practice...any driver caught goofing off during practice will be parked until Qualifying.

 

Drivers Meeting
Manually Disconnecting

Once the server is reset for the drivers meeting Do NOT Manually Disconnect from the server without a server Admins permission or you will start the race with a black flag and/or not be allowed back in the server.

Waiting for Late Drivers
There is NO resetting the server once it has been set.

Text Chat
There will be NO TEXT chat during drivers meeting unless it is a race related question.

1st offense = warning   2nd offence = Black flag  3rd offence = parked***

Whispering
Whispering to directors or Admins during drivers meeting must stop. If you have a question for them wait until they ask if anyone has any questions.

 

Qualifying
1. The Top 3 in points and the winner from the previous race may NOT qualify, everyone can Qualify the 1st race of the Season.
   
 
2. All other drivers are asked to post a qualifying time but no penalty will be accessed if they don't.

3. Any driver who shows up during the drivers meeting or too late to practice will NOT be permitted to Qualify.

4. Any driver who shows up after Qualifying has completed but before the race has started will NOT be permitted to race but will receive last place points for that event.

Pole Position.
The driver winning the pole position must start where the game puts them, they don't have a choice of high or low.
On restarts the race leader still has the choice of high or low.


Too fast Qualifying

If at any time a driver Qualifies substantially faster than the rest of the field we may ask for a replay clip of your qualifying run to verify you did NOT cut the track or exploit any game glitches.

The replay clip must be sent to the RTG contact us link within 15 minute of the conclusion of the race.
If you fail to produce a replay clip within 15 minutes you will be DQ'ed from that race.
If you fail to produce a replay clip a 2nd time the penalty will be decided by the RTG Officers.

TeamSpeak during Qualifying
Absolutely NO use of Team Speak or Text chat is allowed during qualifying.
 
You may receive a black Flag at the start of the race for this offence.

Race Start & Restarts
The Green flag starts the Race.

There is NO jumping the start/restart, you must wait for the green flag.
There is NO attempting to pass high or low on the start of the race or any restart until after you cross the start/finish line.
There is NO moving high or low before the start/finish line to set someone up for the pass after the start/finish line.
This includes changing lanes also. Stay in your lane until you reach the start/finish line.
Penalty for all above = Black Flag or -1 lap post race penalty.

Race Restart
There will be NO Race Restarts.


Restart Pace Speeds
On restarts the race leader must stay +/- 5 mph of pace speed and will go on
GREEN.

If you are more than +/- 5 mph of pace speed or drastically varying your speed before you start the restart you may receive a black flag or a -1 lap post race penalty.

The leader must stay within 1.0 seconds of the pace car until it leaves the track on the start or any restart of the race.

Playing games on restarts will get you black flagged.
Jumping the Restart, lagging back, break checking the field or anything we feel is not within race ethics.
Penalty = Black Flag or a -1 lap post race penalty.



Driver Gaps
All drivers must maintain a 0.1 - 0.3 second gap from the car ahead of you.

Damaged Cars
If you are damaged we ask that you pit with 1 to go and start at the back of the lead lap cars or lapped down cars, which ever pertains to you. This is NOT mandatory but just being respectful.

 

Cautions
No Racing Back

When the caution comes out, HOLD YOUR LINE and RACE AT A STEADY SPEED back to the line.

What this means is, don't let off the throttle all the way and don't try to pass the person in front of you.

Hold your position and wait to slow in turns 1 and 2, not the START/FINISH LINE.
 
Anyone caught intentionally passing for position under yellow may receive a black flag or a -1 lap penalty.
***
With 15 or less laps to go, and the yellow comes out, you are allowed to race back to the yellow flag.***

No Game Caution
It the game does NOT throw a caution the Admins will NOT do so either.

 

Involved in a wreck
If you are involved in a wreck and are sitting backwards on the track DO NOT turn around in front of the field.
Wait for the field to pass you and then safely turn around.

If you try to turn around in front of the field and someone hits you, hits another car or hits the wall to avoid you, you WILL be charged an incident for this.

Incident under Caution
Causing a wreck under caution will result in you getting charged with an Incident.

Racing into a Wreck
If you are found guilty of racing into a wreck and hitting or causing damage to another car you will receive the following penalty.
1st offence = Warning and -10 point penalty
2nd offence = Parked the next week.

This is NOT to be confused with plowing through a wreck or failure to slow enough for a wreck as these are Careless Driving offences.
And should never be confused with being part of the wreck, a continuation of a wreck or just not enough time to slow for the wreck.

 

Restarts, Lucky Dogs & Wave Arounds.
1. When the Caution comes out reduce your speed and hold your position to the Yellow flag.

2. Lap down cars must drive down pit road on the 2nd caution lap or later.
Pitting is the drivers option, But they must at least drive through the pits.

If any lap down cars do NOT pit they will be asked to drop to the rear of the field on the 1 to go lap and NOT be eligible for the next Lucky Dog.

Any lead lap cars that pit after the 1st yellow flag lap will line up where they come out of the pits.

If they are behind lap down cars they restart behind them.

Wave arounds MAY NOT pit.
***See Wave Around in the section below this one.***

3. Lucky Dogs will pit on the 2nd caution lap with the lap down cars
(DO NOT PIT @ 1 TO GO).
    
***See Lucky Dogs in the section below this one.***

Lucky Dogs must wait to go around the track until we get the 1 to go, Wave arounds will follow the lucky dog.

These cars will line up single file behind the longest line.
****See The Lucky Dog and Wave Around Rules below.****

4. The field will form double file when we get the 1 to go.
The race leader has their choice of the high or low line, 3rd on back will line up evens high and odds low.

5. The Leader will go on GREEN. The leader is NOT permitted to start before the GREEN Flag.
There is NO attempting to pass high or low on any restart until after you cross the start/finish line.
This includes changing lanes also, stay in your lane until you reach the start/finish line.
Penalty for all above = Black Flag or -1 lap post race penalty.

Any car may beat the leader to the start/finish line as long as they did NOT take off before the GREEN Flag.

 

At any time the race directors may go to single file restarts for the rest of the race.


Single File Restarts
We will
use the in game single file restart.

All lap down cars will be required to do a drive through on the 2nd Yellow Flag lap or later.

Unless a lapped car pits Do NOT pass any cars while doing your drive through, Pitting is optional.

The race will restart on the
GREEN FLAG.

There will be NO attempting to pass on the high or low side before the start/finish line.
"This includes pulling out of line early to set them up after you cross the start/finish line"

Penalty for all above = Black Flag or -1 lap post race penalty.

 

Running the STOP sign.
If a driver is found to have ran the stop sign at the end of pit road to avoid going down a lap they will receive a -1 lap post race penalty.


LUCKY DOG: 2 per Caution
Lucky Dog is given to the 2 drivers 1 lap down closest behind the race leader when the field catches the pace car, if no cars are 1 lap down it will be given by running order.

If you receive the lucky dog pit on the 2nd yellow flag lap
(DO NOT PIT @ 1 TO GO), after you leave the pits pass the field on the HIGH side of the track and line up ahead of the race leader and the wave around cars.

DIRT: Lucky Dogs on Dirt will line-up EOLL and get a LAP + when it goes green.

Ignore your spotter when he tells you to let them by.

When you get the 1 to go, go all the way around the track and line up at the end of the longest line.

The race director will clear your black flag after the green re-start.

If you do NOT go around the track to take your lucky dog you will NOT be eligible for the next lucky dog!

Lucky Dog has been extended to all race long.


Wave Around

To be eligible for a wave around you must be ahead of the race leader when we get the 1 to go.

Wave around drivers are NOT allowed to pit during that caution.

 When we get the 1 to go the Lucky dog plus all wave around cars will be waved around and line up single file at the end of the longest line.

All black flags will be cleared when we go green, be patient and repost your car # if your bf hasn't been cleared in 1 lap.

Unlimited Wave Arounds

Until 15 laps to go a Series Directors may extend the caution by 1 lap while the green flag is out to allow UNLIMITED Wave Arounds.

Once the caution lights go out the pits will be CLOSED to all cars, pitting after this time will be a black flag or -1 lap post race penalty.

Once the green flag is waved all Lucky Dogs and Wave Arounds will go and line up single file at the EOLL.

Race Admins will clear the Lucky Dogs black flags during this lap.

If the caution is extended the restart point for the race leader will be the start/finish line.

If the caution comes out with 15 or less laps to go there is a maximum of 4 wave arounds and NO extended caution lap.


Clearing Black Flags
We DO NOT clear self inflicted Black Flags.
 
If you get a Black flag as a result of another driver we may clear it.

Examples:
A driver couldn't or wouldn't pass you while coming to the GREEN FLAG.
                    If you get a black flag while entering, on or exiting pit road that is caused by another driver
                    hitting you.

Guilty of black flag
If we clear a black flag and it was legitimately yours, you will be penalized -3 laps in the final race results.
 

Cause another driver to get a black flag
*** If after a post race replay review it is found that a driver causes another driver to get a black flag, the driver at fault will
receive a post race -1 lap penalty and be scored behind everyone on that lap.***


Pit Road

Entering & leaving Pit Road
Unless stated otherwise in the drivers meeting you may enter and exit pit road per game rules.
***
If there is an access road you must use it entering and leaving the pits.***

Fake Pitting

Causing a wreck while fake pitting or late pitting under caution will result in you getting an Incident. 
This will count toward your 3 and park-it.

There is NO speeding down pit road to lead a lap.
 If caught during the race you will receive a black flag and your lap led will be taken away from you.

If caught during replay review you will be moved to the last car scored a lap down to the lap you finish on and your lap led will be taken away from you.


Last 5 laps
If a caution comes out in the last 5 laps you must maintain pace speed under your own power.

If you are assisted by another driver (Pushed) because of damage or running out of fuel your scoring will end there.


Race Finish

Any race that is concluded no matter what problems occurred during the race will be scored.

If you intentionally cause a wreck between the checkered flag and the back straight you will charged an incident and moved the EOLL of the lap you're on in scoring.

Server Crash
If the race is more than 50% completed and the server crash's the race will be official if someone is able to save the export or replay.

But if NO export or replay can be saved the race will be considered a rain out and may be rescheduled.

If there is time the admin may take a driver vote on whether to restart a shortened race.
