RACING ETIQUETTE

3.1 -All drivers must be respectful when driving. Whilst accidental contact is allowed, drivers will be punished for overly aggressive maneuvers

3.2 -Drivers are allowed to make one move to defend their line. During an uncontested pass, the defending driver must hold their line to allow the chasing driver to pass. They are not allowed to attempt to correct their line when the front of the chasing driver's car is past the rear of the defending driver's car, as this will cause an accident

3.3 -All forms of shunting/bumping is not allowed except when the defending driver brake checks the chasing driver. Brake checking is strictly not allowed and may result in a forfeit. The chasing driver must still allow for room to brake when following the defending driver, or brake earlier than they may usually need to in order to avoid an accidental shunt. If an accidental shunt occurs, the chasing driver must allow the defending driver to correct their line and continue the race. The chasing driver is not allowed to overtake in this situation, and must give the position back to the defending driver

3.4 -In the case of a car coming off of the road due to their own error, they must always check behind them before rejoining the race. If the chasing car is at a fast enough speed to overtake the defending car who is coming back onto the road, the defending car must first allow the chasing car to pass

3.5 -Drivers should only pass when it is safe for both drivers and when the chasing driver has a clear opportunity to do so. The chasing driver should only take the inside line into a corner when their front axle is next to or past the defending driver's rear axle. Forced passes such as forcing an inside line and 'dive-bombing' is not allowed. The chasing driver should only take the inside line into a corner when their front axle is next to or past the defending driver's rear axle

3.6 -If the chasing driver's front axle is next to or past the defending driver's rear axle, the chasing driver has the right to the inside line of the corner. The defending driver must take the outside line. Exiting the corner, the defending driver still has the right to the outside line, so the chasing driver must stay on the inside line if they have not fully passed the defending driver. The chasing driver must allow for plenty of room on the exit and not force the defending driver off of their line

3.7 -Cutting, which refers to when a driver uses all four wheels off-road on the inside of a corner in order to take a shorter route, is not allowed. Drivers must make every reasonable effort to stay on the road, and must not go off-road unless by accident or if they have a genuine reason to. Understeering off-road by accident is acceptable but drivers must reduce their speed before coming back onto the road and, if applicable, must allow for the defending driver to pass (if they are within a reasonable distance to do so)

3.8 -The race admin's word is final and must be adhered to at all times. If the race admin instructs a driver to do a certain action, such as to allow for a chasing driver to pass or to restart a race, drivers much oblige. The result of the race, in the case of a close, debatable finish, is determined by the admin and must not be argued
