RCR14a/. During qualifying, the pit exit rule RCR4/. Should be observed.
RCR14b/. Every attempt should be made when exiting the pits, and throughout the out-lap to avoid impeding another competitor who is on a qualifying lap (This includes catching slower cars)
RCR14c/. Wherever possible, allow cars on ‘hot-lap’ to pass on straights and keep off the racing line.
RCR14d/. It is the responsibility of the driver leaving the pits to time the exit in such a way that they exit into a clear piece of road. Getting to T1 and then noticing a car behind is too late.
RCR14e/. If you spin/crash or make an error in such a way that your qualifying lap is ruined, then either 'esc' to the pits and start again, or re-join when it is safe to do so. Make every effort to keep out of the way of cars on Hot Laps who have not made an error.
RCR 14f/. During Qualifying, after the completion of a 'Hot Lap', competitors must not hit the brakes once crossing the S/F line to come to a halt, before pressing 'esc'. Please pull off the track before coming to a halt and pressing 'esc'.
RCR 14g/. Many (rfactor) RaceConnect events now feature 'Closed' Qualifying sessions. This means that if you leave the server during the session, you will not be able to re-join until the warm up. This is to reduce disruption to those drivers who stay on the server during the session. Leaving and re-joining during qualifying is a distraction to other members, and can lead to invisible/temp cars on track, and incidents.
Consequence of Non-Adherence:-
Drivers who block other while on out-laps will receive a warning/penalty. Penalties will be applied depending on the level of the incident and at the discretion of Admin. These may range from Lap Penalties, to Time Penalties, to Drive Through Penalties, to Grid Penalties, to Removal from the Server, or Removal/DQ from the Race Result.
