General Rules

  • We expect all drivers to exercise good racecraft at all times.
  • If you're not sure what good racecraft is, It can be summed up in one simple 'Golden Rule' of motorsports: It is the responsibility of the overtaking driver, meaning the car that is attempting to execute the pass, to make sure that the pass is made cleanly and incident free. 
  • If you don't agree with this rule or don't think it applies to you, this is not the series for you.
  • If you ever feel like a driver is not following the rules, please wait until league night is over, and then file a Racing Incident Report.
  • Our Stewards will review the incident and enforce the appropriate penalty on the driver in question.

Division Assignments - North American Lobby Only

  • All drivers will be placed into either the Professional, ProAM Division. 
  • Division assignments will be re-assessed at the end of each season based on performance review by the Series Director

Team Championship - North American Lobby Only

  • Teams are made up of a Pro Division driver and ProAm Division driver.
  • Points earned from each driver each week count towards the team total.

  • Past Team Championship Teams members may not team up again in future seasons

Still need you to do the qualification run at Catalunya GP so I can place you in the correct division.

Is it possible to take a picture of your qualy time WITHIN the game features? Asking because I do not have a camera and it seems unnecessary to bother a friend to come by and take a picture for me to set my initial division placement.

Can I be accepted directly into the top group?

Is changing tyre pressure acceptable within the rules or should that be left stock unchanged as well?

The lobby is setting the restrictions so making any changes would not be implemented

Random thought's...

  1. First semi-sanctioned Forza event in 2 years...anticipation is building.
  2. First time in 5+ years Parcells isn't hosting a Thursday night session...This is a big one!
  3. Still coming to grips with the new wheel but it is awesomeuno.
  4. Usually start racing on Thursday evening's 45 minutes ago.
  5. #4 is providing much more time to drink and smoke weed uninterupted...I'm gonna be wrecked come race time, hope that's not frowned upon.
  6. Time for some practice...not very fond of Hockenheimring, serenity now.

Is there anything required for these cars? I did a paint for Ciletti and I don't want him out of conformance.

To anyone who sent Parcells a FR in the last couple of months (since I purchased the XOne) I wasn't ignoring you as much as I didn't understand the procedure to accept friend requests...was expecting an old style 360 new FR message, couple months later figured out the system.

I knew I had some followers but assumed they could be stalkers so never investigated.
