League Rules
           
           
Requirements:
 
1. All Supercar League members need to download and install Paltalk. This is where we meet 15 minutes prior to event time for the drivers meeting.

2.All members must submit their driver name to me (Grim) prior to the first event of the season. They must use this name, and only this name in all Supercar League races to avoid confusion. (please try and make your driver name no more than 8 or 9 characters, with no references to other leagues, teams or clubs.)

           
           
           
Recomended Downloads:
 
Because of its size, i won't require members to have ICQ, but i strongly recomend that you get it for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, should paltalk have a problem on league night and not be accessable, (which happends occasionally) icq will be our back up for informing drivers when and where (ip) they will race. If you dont have it, you will have no way of knowing the ip address of the event. Another reason to have it is ICQ is the perfect place to hook up with other Supercar League members to practice.
           
 
           
Point System:
 
The "A" Feature Race   Qualifying Heats
         
1st place 30 points   1st place 20 points
2nd place 28 points   2nd place 18 points
3rd place 26 points   3rd place 16 points
4th place 24 points   Provisional 15 points
         
The "B" Feature Race      
         
1st place 25 points      
2nd place 23 points      
3rd place 21 points      
4th place 19 points      
Provisional 18 points      
         
         
         
Bonus Points: There will be a 3 point bonus awarded for the driver with the fastest lap of the event, 2 points for the second fastest and 1 point for 3rd fastest. (Lap times from Shoot-out's are not valid.)
 
Note: Provisional points for event "no shows" can vary. For example: if there are only 3 members at the "B" Feature, then the the provisional points awarded for the feature race will be the equivalent of the points usually awarded for a 4th place finish. This is done to keep the league as competitive as possible.
         
         
         
Race Format:        
         
NOTE: There will be no more than 4 drivers in any feature except for when only 5 members are present at an event. Should this happen, the driver who finishes in 5th place will receive 23 points.
 
Number of drivers Number of Heats Drivers in Feature's Shoot-out Race  
         
3 or less 1 all in "A" no  
4 2 all in "A" no  
5 2 all in "A" no  
6 2 4 in "A" - 2 in "B" no  
7 3 4 in "A" - 3 in "B" no  
8 3 4 in each Feature no  
9 3 4 in each Feature 2-three man shoot-outs  
10 4 4 in each Feature 2-three man shoot-outs  
11 4 4 in each Feature one 4 man and a 3 man  
12 4 4 in each Feature 2-four man shoot-outs  
         
Who Qualifies For "A" Feature:
 
6 Drivers: The top 2 finishers from each heat race
         
7 or 8 Drivers: The 1st place finishers from the 3 heats and the fastest 2nd place finisher (race time)
         
9 Drivers: The 1st place finishers from the 3 heats and the fastest race time from the 2 shoot-outs. The slowest race time from the 2 shoot-outs will not qualify for either feature.
         
10 or more Drivers: The first place finishers from the 4 heat races, with the first and second place finishers from the 2 shoot-outs qualifying for the "B" feature.
 
         
Each driver that is present in the Leadfooters room in Paltalk on or before event time will be guaranteed two races. All drivers will race 1 Qualifying Heat and race either in the Shoot-out, the Feature, or both. (depending on the number of drivers present at the event) Which Qualifying Heat a driver races in, is based on the amount of points that driver earned at the previous event. For example: If we have 9 drivers present, the top 3 drivers from the previous event will be in heat 1, the 4th thru 6th place finishers will be in second heat and so on...For this reason drivers must be present in paltalk on or before event time to be eligable for that event. Once the clock on my computer reads 7:00pm the night of the event, i will announce the drivers in the first Qualifying Heat and all drivers not present in the meeting room at that time, will not be eligable for that event. The top driver from each Qualifying Heat will automatically advance to the "A" Feature race. (when there are 9 or more drivers at an event) The remaining drivers will race a Shoot-out to fill the remaining spots in the Features.(no points awarded for Shoot-out's) Once a race line-up is announced and the ip is issued, please give ample time for all drivers to arrive at the race (at least 5 minutes) before you start the race. Once you arrive at the race, during the countdown please hit the "F5" button and type anything in and hit "Enter" to show you are there...If you notice that there is a driver that hasn't checked in by the time you have completed the first lap, please hit the "F5" key again and type "Restart", then hit the "Esc" key and return to the chat and wait for the missing driver or drivers to re-connect to the ip. Should this happen a second time, the same rule applys. Should this happen on the third race start, then the driver or drivers who were ejected from the race will have to take a DNF and the race will continue. Should it be determined later that a driver left a race (by hitting the escape button)during the first lap just to get a re-start, that driver will automatically be banned from racing in that event and possibly from racing in the league at all.
         
         
         
Provisional (no show) Points:
         
We understand that for a number of reasons, not all members can be present for every event of the season. For this reason, we will award provisional points to any member who is absent from an event.
         
Season Code Of Conduct
         
First and foremost, this league is about fun. If one of us turns out to be the fastest 'Slider on the planet, great, but that is NOT at all why this league was conceived. Therefore, this page is to set the record straight as to what is expected of ALL members. READ this thoroughly and carefully (it is intended to help maintain the competitiveness of the league for ALL memebers), or you may experience the consequences stated herein.

1) Attitudes:
Do NOT take up issues that may arise in race or otherwise in the League server OR in paltalk main window!! ALWAYS talk to me in PRIVATE about it so we can attempt to resolve it with minimal impact to the mood and/or the egos ANY racers.
In PALTALK:
If you want to taunt others cause you are SO great..do it in a PRIVATE window, and only to those that it does not bother..basically, if you are that fast, just prove it in the race. Keep the main paltalk window freed up (from excessive text). Ignoring this guideline or talking 'it' on the mic will result in you being muted. This way, I can do what it is there that I need TO do (calling heats and answering any last minute questions.. but after having read the rules page AND this [which ARE required reading for all members]... there should not be too many questions..right?).
In the RACE SERVER (during events):
To help expedite things... No whining, no taunting, no roger wilco, no downloads, ICQ, IE, FTP apps ect..OFF, just friends having fun. :) Again, the race admin needs to be able to say what NEEEDS said, and not all can see WHAT he says if there is a lot of text going up by the excited racers. In a nutshell, there is ALOT more going on than what meets the eye there (especially while points are being alloted), and there are a only limited number of readable text lines with NO scroll function.

If an occasional lag/warp tag (or even an occasional dumb move) offends you, this is deffinitely NOT the league for you. We have made many considerations to get to this point so that even if you DNF in a heat, you can STILL make it to the feature by placing in the Shoot Out race. It is simply a place to have fast fun experiences with a group of buddies with similar online racing interests. Let's ALL do our best to keep it that way.

The Supercar League Admin thanks you in advance for your cooperation in all of these matters.

         
We (The Admin or Admins) reserve the right to add, remove or change any of the above stated, or not stated rules, as well as remove any league member based on attendance, as well as conduct both in the game and in Paltalk.
