Right just some hotlap/time trial rules, we will be reviewing all laps that qualify in the top-20 and performing spot-checks, those that do not observe correct driving may have their lap removed or will be disqualified (DQ)
- Observe the track limits at all times, if we observe track cutting that is unrealistic with all wheels in an off-track position the lap will be invalidated
- Do not use external software to modify performance
- Respect your competitors
- Do not go wide into the last corner to gain speed advantage over the line on Outlap (actual hotlap is fine), your car must be within the white lines entirely, do not go over this line or touch it – laps will be excluded if you do
