OWRL F1 Rules
Currently, no F1 Series is planned. The information below describes the already finished 2012 season. This page will be updated when a new season is announced.
The OWRL F1 Series started in 2007 as a competition than runs once each year. It now has completed four seasons. The drivers and teams that have won so far can be found on the OWRL Info page. The 2012 season will run for eights races from June until September. This page gives an overview of how the OWRL F1 is run. All rules on the rules page apply, unless superseded by what is written here.

Participation There are different rules for if you want to take part as just a driver or as part of a team. All drivers need to register on a per race basis on the race under "upcoming events". You will also need to set a personal best or hotlap time on LFS World. Both steps need to be done before the signup deadline. If you also want to take part for the team championship, you will need to submit your team in our forum or by mailing to -email- before the event starts. Clearly state your team name, drivers real names and the exact LFS World names. You can have more than two drivers in a team, but only two of those drivers can compete for the team in a race.
Drivers in a team need to use the starting numbers that will be given based on the standings of the last season. The team of the driver championship winner will get no 1 and 2, after that the teams will be ranked after the team championship. New teams will be ordered by sign-up date. Teamless drivers won't need to put a starting number before their name.
If a driver doesn't take part at the qualifying but will drive the race, he has to start from the pits. See starting procedure.
General Information Car: BMW Sauber F1.06
Servername and password will be announced before the event.
Time table (CEST) - 19:30 Qualifying all drivers (Q1, 15 minutes) - 19:50 Top 10 Qualifying (Q2, 10 minutes) - 20:10 Race
Points: F1 System (25,18,15,12,10,8,6,4,2,1)
In a season the worst result is dropped. The points are compared on a event basis. This means, if a driver completes and scores points at all six events, the event he scored the least points in is discarded. If a driver misses an event, that automatically will become his worst result. If a driver competes for a team, the position he finishes in will decide the number of points he scores for the team championship, regardless of whether teamless finished ahead of him.
The rule for the drivers championship that discards the worst result is not in effect for the team championship. The points scored at all 8 events will count towards the team championship.
Race day Drivers can signup for the race until 17:00 CEST, 2,5 hours before the race. The server info will be posted shortly after the signup deadline in our forum.
Qualifying takes place in two parts. The first part of the qualifying (Q1) will start at 19:30 CET and goes for 15 minutes. During that time each of driver can drive as many laps as he want. He has to make sure that he let cars that are on a flying lap pass. At the pit exit the driver has to watch out for cars that are on the track, but the yellow/white line can be neglected. It is forbidden to use drafting in order to get a faster lap time. To qualify for a race a driver must be within 107% of the best time in the first qualifying, otherwise he is excluded from the race. Exceptions are possible.
In part 2, the Top 10 of the first part will decide in a 10 minute qualifying (Q2) session who gets pole.The other drivers will keep their position until race start and aren't allowed to drive on track until the admins give a track clear message. The Top 10 drivers have to use the car setup and the amount of fuel they intend to start the race with. They are not allowed to spectate (Shift-S) or telepit (Shift-P) at anytime, only in-game pitstops are allowed, where it is allowed to change the tyre type via pit stop (R2, R3, R4). This rule applies for the Top 10 drivers from the beginning of Q2 until race start. See penalties below for failing to keep up with this rule.
After the qualifying the server stays in-game, the top 10 drivers still are NOT allowed to spectate or telepit, the others who were spectating can join. The admins start the race approx. 5 minutes after end of qualifying.
Behaviour A driver can file a complaint about any other driver to the OWRL marshals. Only complaints handed in before 48 hours after the finish of a race will be handled. A complaint can be filed by mailing to -email-, clearly stating: - Competition - Involved drivers - Session (Q1/Q2/race) - Lap - Description of the incident. If a complaint is too unclear it will not be investigated. The first lap will always be reviewed by the marshals.
And a very important thing: We all expect an civilized language. We will not bear any verbal attacks, advertising or spamming.
During the sessions, chatting is NOT allowed!/ It will be penalised with a five second penalty added to the race finishing time for each line.
Driver names and Skins Every driver has to drive with his realname and his starting number (for teams), which is seperated with a hyphen (-) from the name. Colours are not restricted. The name has to look like this:
00 - W. de Bruijn
For teams, the team should also be recognizable by the skin, however it is not necessary to have the starting number on the car. If team drivers do not comply with the naming rules, or a team has two drivers with the same number, the driver(s) will not be eligible to score points for their team.
Starting procedure We will use the normal starting procedure in LFS.
Starting from the pits: After the race session starts and all cars are placed, driver who have to start from the pits will spectate. (Grid spot is now empty) After all the cars have passed the pit exit (end of speed limit) cars starting from the pit lane will join the race.
Pitting Going to the pits with Shift + S and P is only allowed in the first qualifying (Q1), not at any other time and/or session. It will result in a DNF during the race.
On each track is a white or yellow line at the pit exit. A driver that comes out of the pits must not cross that line until it ends. The line at the pit entry can be neglected. Crossing the line will result in a Drive through Penalty during the race. There will be specific information on pit entry/exit at various tracks listed in the server information which will be given before each race for the drivers.
Drivers who do not finish will get no points, unless they cover at least 90% of the distance in laps.
Driving Aids Traction control is allowed.
Penalties Drive Through- and Stop&Go penalties must be served within three laps after getting them. Disqualifications given out by the game will count as a disqualification.
Penalties for the Top 10 drivers of Q1: Pitting/Spectating/Disconnect during Q2 or between Q2 and Race: +10 position on the starting grid. This will be checked after the race, the penalty therefore applies to the next race the driver takes part in.See starting procedure.
The admin notifies the drivers of the start and end of a session. If it turns out that a driver pitted without any admin noticing it, the driver has to tell the admin that he broke the rules, otherwise the driver will be disqualified after the race.
Server crash procedure After a server crash the race will only be resumed when less than 25% of the original race distance are covered. When the race will be restarted the starting order will be decided after the grid positions at the last full lap that has been driven before the server crash. The new race distance is the original distance minus the distance covered before the server crash. Half points will be awarded if the leader has completed more than 25% but less than 75% of the original race distance and full points will be awarded if the leader has completed more than 75% of the original race distance.
There are no events scheduled in the next 120 days
