All drivers in this series must maintain an LPI of at least 100 to race in this series. The server will be set to restrict any driver with an LPI of 99 or less, so if your LPI dips below 100 at any time you will not be allowed to race in this series until your LPI is again at 100 or higher.

Any driver that causes three cautions for any reason in three or fewer races in a row must transfer to the Chase to the Cup series until completing two races in the Chase to the Cup series without causing a caution, after completing two caution free races in the Chase to the Cup series the driver may transfer back to the Cup series provided they meet the requirements.

 

No AI’s will be used in this series; a valid race will need at least 4 drivers. If we have fewer than 4 drivers the points from the last race with 4 or more drivers will be used for scoring the race. If there has not been a race completed with 4 drivers in the series, the points from the Chase to the Cup Tuesday night race will be transfer less the 25 points. Any single race may only be used for points a maximum of two times. Any driver that shows for a race with fewer than 4 cars will receive 150 points for showing up, the driver must stay through qualifying to receive the points. If a driver raced in the last Chase to the Cup race they can take the 150 points or transfer the point from Tuesday’s race less 25 points, whichever is greater.

 

We may limit the number of participants to this series; drivers may be put on standby or added throughout the series. Car numbers will be reserved first come first serve.

If you are interested in running this series please send an email and let us know. If we have the interest we will schedule for Sunday's, with qualifying starting at 6:00 pm Pacific time.

We will race every other weekend on past and present Trans Am tracks including a Le Mans Enduro. We will have three basic race weekends, a standard 75 to 100 mile race lasting 45 minutes to one hour with open setup. Every other month we will run Twin Races, two different tracks with fixed setup about 50 miles in length. We will have three enduros, one about every other month. The enduro’s will be fixed setup and be run in two halves totaling 120 plus miles for both segments.

 

There will be no cautions, damage will be moderate or none. Races will be open setup except for the Twin’s and the Enduro races will be fixed setup.

 

We will use Simcar.Info rules with the variations noted below:  

Points:

1st – 15 points

2nd – 13 points

3rd – 11 points

4th – 9 points

5th – 7 points

6th – 5 points

7th – 4 points

8th – 3 points

9th – 2 points

10 and up – 1 point

Bonus points: 1 point for pole, 1 point for leading a lap and 1 point for leading the most laps.

 

Penalties points will be subtracted from series standings. No passing is allowed until after the first turn on the start. Making contact with other cars causing another car to spin two times in one race or one time, two races in a row will be subject to penalty. Review committee may make changes to the rules in an effort to make racing better for all with at least 50% of the drivers agreeing to the change. We will allow a restart if a car is taken out in the first lap, and at least two drivers ask for restart on the first lap.

 

We may limit the number of Only the top nine qualifying cars will start the race, all others will receive 1 point, this number may change depending on what our server will handle. If at any race the number of drivers is five or less we will add IA cars for a total field of 9 cars. AI cars will be set to 95%.

 

All races will be on Sunday evenings. Please note times for each race, all times are Pacific. Last race may be shortened if not started by 7:00 pm.

 

When running two different tracks we will try to allow 15 minutes practice before starting the second race, if unable to start by 7:00 pm we will decrease the length of the second race by 5% or reschedule. When running the same track we may go right into qualifying in order to start the second segment by 7:00 pm. If not started by 7:00 pm the race will be shortened or rescheduled.  

 

These rules may be changed if needed up four days before the first event or after the start of the series with 50% or more of the drivers agreeing to the change.

 

All races will be 2 x pit frequency.
