RWB promotes competitive but above all, fair racing. Anyone driving with RWB is expected to follow these driving standards.

 

Track Limits 

In general terms, cars should always have 2 wheels on the track side of the white line or otherwise edge of the track. Follow this one principle and you're all good. 

On the most part we will try to let the game handle things with any in-built penalty system but expect drivers to still follow the 2 wheels on rule regardless of whether an in-game penalty system detects a cut or not for any particular corner (or is switched off). Cuts include both driving over apexes and extending outside the track on corner exit.

 Some corners do allow extension over the white line and are designed as such. Where necessary these will be advised on before a race. 

Drivers must make every reasonable effort to use the track at all times and must not deliberately leave the track or be stationary without a justifiable reason.

 

Contact 

Motor racing isn't a contact sport but it's inevitable there will be some. What you do when an incident occurs makes a difference. 

Giving a place back when you know you've hit someone or forced them off track is encouraged and promotes fair play. This will probably be taken into consideration when reviewing league incidents and generally helps keep tempers down. You should also apologise for contact that is your fault. 

Often during a race it can be unclear who is at fault and you need to see replays to really see what happened so if you think it was their fault and they think it wasn't, please leave "debates" until after the race and let an admin or race official know and we’ll take a look at it, ideally try and talk to the person involved and try and reach an agreement, if you cannot then put in a report. 

Whatever happens, stick it out until the end, 'To finish first, First you must finish!' 

 

Passing Etiquette / Defending Position 

More than any other area, this causes the most issues. 

More than one change of direction to defend a position is not permitted. If a driver has moved off the racing line while defending their position, they may move back to the racing line but must ensure there is at least one car’s width between their own car and the edge of the track. Plus of course not hit the other car if it's in the way. 

Changing track position within the braking zone is an illegal move and making a move that puts you in front of another player that is close just before the braking zone (ie pull across then slam on your brakes a moment later) will be your fault if the guy behind goes into the back of you. 

During Qualy 

Anyone on an out lap must let people on a flying lap past without impeding them or getting on their racing line. 

Try to leave enough room in front of you for your flying lap. If you catch someone up also on their flying lap they are not expected to get out your way as you are faster in fact if you damage their lap trying to pass you are at fault. Either find a place to pass without impediment or back off and try again.  

If someone tries to leave a decent gap and keeps catching you up several times in a row, it might be nice to let them past ;)

 

Lapping 

If a driver is being lapped by another car, a “blue flag” will be deployed. Please do not ignore these flags but don't see them as a sudden order to get out the way - see them as making you aware someone is coming and then some common sense is required as to what to do next depending on your pace compared to the lapping car. 

More important is how you let them past. The car being lapped must either move off the racing line or slow their car in a fashion which is predictable for the lapping car to pass. The lapping car must oblige by regular passing standards when passing. 

The lapping car is allowed to flash their lights 2 times to get the other drivers attention if they do not facilitate the pass in time or have been unaware that a car would like to pass.

 

Close quarters Cornering 

By this we mean when you are side by side with another driver coming into a corner. We do not follow the 50% of the car rules where if one car is halfway up the car in front they get the racing line. If you are even slightly side by side then you are expected to stay in lane around the corner or yield. Turning in on someone who has out braked you into a corner is your fault. Similarly, extending coming out a corner with someone on your outside is again your fault. 

A special case worth noting is dive bombing. If you were not beside another car by the time it is committed to the corner and is turning in, managing to squeeze your car in just before the apex is dive bombing and the driver doing it is at fault. The same is true for extension out a corner (don't fly in on the outside when they are committed and need the full track to exit).

 

Accidents 

Accidents will happen so when they do please..... 

- if you spin/crash off, re-enter the track safely. This may well mean waiting for cars to pass, use the track map!. 

 

- do NOT reset your car for any reason other than being on your roof or otherwise stuck; and even then you must be SURE no-one is nearby (your car will NOT be ghosted in event races). 

 

- if you come up to a crash and yellow flag then be aware, slow down appropriately. Smashing into a crashed car is your fault if you could have avoided it but tried to power past at full speed. Please also try to leave cars re-entering the track space to do so if you can.

 

- if you push someone off and suspect it may or may not have been your fault it is wise to give the position back as this goes in your favour if an incident is lodged

 

Behaviour 

Un-sportsmanship warnings are given to drivers or members of the community who have displayed rude, aggressive or offensive behaviour to fellow members of the community.
 

If you disagree during a race on who was at fault - LEAVE IT UNTIL AFTER THE RACE - oh and check the replay first or risk having to backtrack. In addition if you lose your temper, we will not investigate the incident on your behalf and will not take action against the other driver.
 

If a Discord member has been abused or bullied by another member, they may raise the issue with an Administrator who will take appropriate actions. These actions may include applying any sanctions the Administrator believes appropriate. If the Administrator believes that the offending member should be removed from RWB, then it is at the discretion of admin based on the offence.

 

All in just please show other people respect!

 

League Penalties 

RWB Race Stewards will give out penalties where reports are submitted and reviewed, we also reserve the right to review any incidents that have been noted by admin and stewards during the race that have gone unreported (yes, we are also racing).

They have complete discretion as to what these will be but we have an incident sheet that states basic penalties but these can be combined, we use a strike system and if you earn 3 strikes in a season then you are race banned including ones applied in your last league.

 

Using Assists 

By this we mean ABS, TC, Driving line etc.

RWB likes to be as inclusive as possible so allow use of these assists in all our races if it helps you.

This includes cars that otherwise don't get them.

They are there to help people stay on track through having less experience or trouble driving without them , i.e disability, not to win races.

In general these will allow anyone who has any reason for needing to use them, In general they make you slower but can make you a safer driver.

 

RWB Public Lobbies 

In our public lobbies we are all ambassadors for the club. The rules above should be followed by you towards non-club players who are otherwise behaving themselves on track.  

We discourage revenge attacks on anyone and prefer you tell the person what they may have done after the race. If the person continues to be confrontational they will be kicked off the server.   

Any actively malicious drivers you meet, please take a note of their steam ID then we can add them to our blacklist. 

RWB Admins will always review any reports that have been made to them and will take action as needed.

 

Headlights 

Headlights are on the car for one reason - to help let others know you are there when they otherwise might not know you are. They are NOT there to distract other drivers.  

Daytime races - ALWAYS OFF. 

Night time races - ALWAYS ON. 

Flashing or otherwise turning lights on or off when they shouldn't be is not allowed at RWB and we don't care if the "pro's" do it. It's bad sportsmanship. 

The only time flashing lights is acceptable is to draw attention to another driver you are there such as when lapping and they have not gotten out the way in time or have not noticed they are being lapped.

 

Headlights

Covered above but for some light hearted clarity......Do not flash to put off racers!



Misconduct


Any direct personal misconduct will be dealt with swiftly, We will not tolerate attacks of any kind, if you have any complaints at RWB please contact admin asap.


Discord Chat / Support

Discord chat is always open, voice or text, if you need help with racing, tech, life or just need someone to talk to, then if someone is online we are sure you will have an ear.

RWB is dedicated to mental health and in 2020 raised over £3500 for the MIND charity for Mental Heath and Suicide Prevention, if you need someone to talk to then please feel free to reach out, someone will listen.


A message from admin

RWB are not a drop in race club, we like to engage, we understand that is not for everyone but it works for us and our members, if you would like to be a part of that you are welcome.

Whatever happens, stick it out till the end. Rage quitting is frowned upon, always try and finish, it helps your stats and also people notice, also stats for attendance and finish will become part of race entries going forward, keep your rep up.

See you on track racers!
