2016 Season 1 is coming to an end, the last events finish on Monday morning May 2nd. Time to release the 2016 Season 2 racing calendar! As there have been quite a few comments about racing in reversed direction, all tracks will be raced in the normal default direction in Season 2. As before Rostrum view is only forced for the modified classes, the view point for the Spec class is free.
Racers who qualify but opt not to race in the main final (DNS or Did Not Start) will receive only 25% of the allocated points this season!
As usual at the end of a season the skill levels will be re-calculated and your racer class for each of the classes will be adjusted to your new skill level. This will be done between May 2nd and the start of the new season on May 7th. YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR NEW RACER CLASS BEFORE THE START OF THE NEW SEASON, YOU CAN OPT TO RACE IN A HIGHER CLASS, YOU CANNOT RACE IN A LOWER CLASS.
