It will be up to the league's discretion on you becoming a regular member. Under this period you can be removed at any time from the league. 

 

4. Car Numbers:

  • Any registered drivers for the Monday NIght Transervice Cup Series will own the charter for their selected number in all Sim500 series. They will also have the first choice of any number thats not used in that series so you could be subject to lose your number. We ask that drivers have ONE number for all series. 

 

5. Drivers Conduct/Incidents

  • Drivers are responsible for their actions and behaviour in race servers, the Sim500 League TeamSpeak server, and social media. Any form of misconduct will be up for review and penalties. All drivers are expected to follow the rules written here and/or as directed by league Admins. Failure to follow Sim500 rules, Admin instructions, or any conduct deemed detrimental to Sim500 will result in race penalties, probation, suspensions and/or bans from the league. All decisions on behaviour are final and may not be appealed. 

  • Flaming in the server: If you flam another driver in the race server you will be ejected on the spot without warning. We allow drivers the freedom to say what they want to a point regarding on-track incidents. The only chat allowed during the GREEN FLAG is race-related ONLY, for instance, letting another driver know your pitting, passing, or damaged. If a driver does not follow these simple hat rules they will then have their chat removed for the remainder of that event. 

  • ANYONE WHO IS FOUND TO BE DRUNK WHILE RACING WILL PERMANENTLY BE REMOVED FROM SIM500

  • FIRST20 -- If a driver causes a caution within the first 20 laps it will now be recorded. The first offence will put a driver on PROBATION for the next 8 weeks. If a driver causes another incident in the FIRST20 laps they will then be suspended for ONE WEEK. When the driver returns they will have 2 weeks probation. The admin team will review all incidents and rule fault.

  • Avoidable Cautions -- Any driver who manipulates a race by purposely bringing out a caution will be suspended from all Sim500 events for ONE month. 

  • Aggressive Racing -- Any driver who is found overaggressive causing multiple incidents on a regular basis will be issued a one-time warning. If that driver continues to have problems on track, they will be suspended or permanently banned from Sim500.

 

6.Race Restarts: 

  •  The initial start is on the green flag. On all restarts, the leader may start the race at his discretion from the start of the RESTART ZONE until the green flag. 

  • The “restart zone” is the point at which the pace car is entirely off of the racing surface. The leader must maintain a constant speed until he chooses to accelerate.

  • No passing or changing lanes on restarts before the finish line, this includes driving on the apron at tracks like Kansas, Chicago, and Kentucky.

 

7.Pitting Etiquette: 

  • All drivers will stay on the right side of pit lane until they are three stalls away from their pit box. After your pit stop, drivers will be permitted to drive through only three stalls before returning to the right side of pit lane.

 

8.Black Flags:

​       If a driver feels he has a false Black flag, an admin will clear that penalty, and it will be reviewed after the race. If a driver provides false information regarding a black flag, they will face a points penalty or one race suspension.

 

9. Teamspeak/iRacing Chat:

  • Drivers must have their chat enabled for all races. The top three finishers in broadcasted races are required to be available on TeamSpeak for post-race interviews.TeamSpeak:sim500.teamspeak3.com (no password)
