  4. Race Sessions

    1. Requesting an EOL

      Is not only allowed but encouraged if you find yourself gridding somewhere you are not comfortable starting.  The request should be made prior to beginning pacing.

    2. Weather

      1. The NWTS will attempt to use two different weather types for the 2017b season.  Half the season will utilize option 1, and the other half will utilize option 2.
      2. Option 1: Mostly Cloudy 87° RH 70% S 5 MPH
      3. Option 2: Dynamic based on Tuesday Practice Session
    3. Calling the Race

      1. Races 1-4 will utilize the iRacing penalty system with no black flags to be cleared no matter the situation. This means you must pay attention to your Black Box Screens & what iRacing is telling you.
      2. Races 5-8 will utilize a “Caused Caution” system. This will be explained a little further down in the document. But basically, consist of one of the drivers involved claiming they caused the caution. Once claimed before the One to Go signal, the admin will issue an End Of Longest Line (EOLL)
      3. Races 9-12 will utilize a Live Administrator.  The admin will issue an EOLL to the driver that the official deems caused that caution. Black flags for speeding or unsafe entry to pit road will be cleared only if this is acquired by avoiding a wreck and driving down into pit road. Black flags being cleared should not be a common occurrence.
    4. Caused Caution Rule

      1. If a driver causes a caution during the event, for any reason, they are to type “C” in the in-game chat, or state via the voice chat that the caution was caused by them.
      2. If the caution was the driver’s 1st offense, they are to be issued an End of Longest Line Penalty at the 1-to-go warning for the end of the caution period.
      3. If the caution was the driver’s 2nd offense, they are to be issued a 1-Lap Penalty, which can be served under yellow or green flag conditions.
      4. If served under green flag conditions, it must be served within 3 laps of the restart of the event. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
      5. If the caution was the driver’s 3rd offense, they are to be disqualified from scoring as of the lap of the offense.
      6. Failure to disclose to the administration that you were the cause of the caution period will result in the administration review of the incident post-race.
      7. If the administration deems a driver at fault for the caution during the post-race review, the driver’s penalty for the caution will be ramped up by 1 penalty level. ex: 1st offense will be a 1-Lap Penalty, the 2nd offense will be DQ as of that lap. All penalties issued prior to points being applied post-race.
      8. All cautions must be claimed prior to the 2-to-go signal for the race events restart. No claims AFTER that point will be accepted, and the cautions cause will be deemed to be under administration review for after the race event.
    5. Starts & Restarts

      1. The start of the race will be controlled by the iRacing Green Flag. Leader has lane choice and can choose high or low but will maintain pace speed until the Green Flag is shown.
      2. Restarts, on all restarts leader will have lane choice either high or low and is allowed to choose when to start the race as determined by the iRacing Pace Vehicle leaving the track.
  5. Scoring Methods

    1. Regular Season

      1. During this twelve week season we will be utilizing the NRS Scoring Methods. We will be utilizing two drop weeks, those drop weeks can only be used in the first ten races of the season.  No drops will be giving on the eleventh or twelfth race of the season (Michigan & Iowa).
    2. Bonus Points

      1. One single point for each individual bonus achieved.

        1. Clean Race (0 INC – Must run 75% of laps)
