3. Skins

Each dirver can create and use his own custom skin, simply using the skin transfer feature in rFactor 2.
Avoid to update your skin too often, and avoid to use your updated skin directly on a official qualifying session as the first time.


4. Points + Rules

NB: In order to score points, you must complete at least 70% of the race.

The worst 2 personal races of the season will be discarded, this allow you to miss 2 races without losing points.

GENERAL RULES

1) Use your full name (Name Lastname) in rF2 and don’t change it during the season.
2) Special symbols are forbidden (ñ – ö – ß etc.), these symbols can cause a crash, replace them with a common symbol.
3) If you are going to miss a race let us know, so we can inform the drivers in the reserve list (if there will be a reserve list).
4) If you miss 2 races without let us know, you will be removed from the championship and a reserve will take your place.
5) Chat is forbidden during official Qualy and Race sessions.
6) If you are late in the Q session, you can still join, however you will not be able to take part in it. You will become a spectator untill the session end and you will start from the back of the grid.
This is only to avoid lag spikes for the drivers who are fighting for the best lap.


RACE RULES

After a race you have to send an incident report through the Incident Report feature, in the Series page. We’ll review only the reported incidents, so be sure to report them!

Each penalty will be applied in the following round, usually on the first laps of the race. If you miss the round when you are going to serve the penalty, you will serve it in the next race available.

PENALITIES

Causing an avoidable incident: Drive Through
Bad rejoin on track after a spin/incident: Drive Through
Ignoring Blue Flags for more than 20 seconds: Drive Through
Bump overtake (hit the car in front with a small or big tap and then overtake it): Drive Through (no penalty if the position is given back)
Causing an huge crash: Stop & Go
Taking a massive advantage and overtaking during a yellow flag: Drive Through
Unsportsmanlike: DQ or ban
Track Cutting: Drive Through (multiple little cuts) or Stop & Go (big cut)

When you have a Stop & Go or a Drive Through, you are no longer forced to serve it within 3 laps, you can serve it whenever you want during the race or even not serve it, rF2 will automatically add you the right amount of seconds after the chequerd flag.
By introducing this, you are no longer forced to serve an unfair penalty (ie a mistake in the rf2 code), but you can keep racing and then, after the race, report to us when and where, we’ll review and decide to delete the penalty or not.

NOTE: when you get a fair penalty, the time you lose serving it is way less than the time added after the race, so it’s up to you to decide to serve it or not.
If you are planning to do a pitstop and not serve a penalty, you have to select “NO” in the pitstop menu in order to avoid to serve a penalty.
