First of all, thank you to all the teams and drivers who have signed up so far. The following information applies to the pre-season test races, which will be used to decide the starting order before round 1. Note that the scoring system is not the same as that used for the in-season races. Because we have reached more than 25 drivers, we had to discuss how to set up the grid. For this, a new system will be applied. A maximum of 2 servers will operate for the championship. This means a full grid of 50 drivers or 25 teams. For the pre-qualification, we will use the three test races: TR Zandvoort 11.08. TR Norisring 25.08. TR VitusPark 08.09. (because of pre-qualy, it will be not an endurance test) As mentioned in the intro and info Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, teams must consist of two drivers for this championship. This will now come into consideration: for each test race only ONE driver of each team is allowed to take part. This means 25 teams can join the test races. As long as the maximum amount of 25 teams has not been reached, single drivers can fill up the grid, of course. For each test race the respective drivers have to sign up. How does it work? Each team driver doesn't qualify himself, he qualifies his team. That means, if driver A qualifies for server 1, driver B of the team will automatically also be in server 1. Therefore 12 teams will qualify for server 1, teams lower than position 12 will join server 2 for the first event. The best 4 teams (8 drivers) will also be qualified for 2nd event for server 1 to prevent championship contenders dropping to server 2 due to, for an example, a disconnection. The single drivers can take part as mentioned, but they will be driving for the 25th spot in server 1. That means only ONE single driver is allowed to join server 1 for the first event. The rest of the single drivers have to start in server 2. This way, teams have a much better chance to qualify for server 1 than single drivers. I highly advise single drivers to build a team with each other, rather than driving alone. How do you score? The team or single driver points will be scored as follows: qualifying result 25p 24p 23p 22p 21p 20p 19p 18p 17p 16p 15p 14p 13p 12p 11p 10p 9p 8p 7p 6p 5p 4p 3p 2p 1p race result: 25p 24p 23p 22p 21p 20p 19p 18p 17p 16p 15p 14p 13p 12p 11p 10p 9p 8p 7p 6p 5p 4p 3p 2p 1p The 2 best combined results (of qualifying and races) of the 3 test races will be the final score for your team or for the single driver and gives the ranking for the pre-qualifying and how we put the 2 servers together. Up and down system? Server 2 drivers have the possibility to get promoted to server 1, depending on the points they score. They can score points for the first 8 places and for pole position. 1st place 8 points 2nd place 7 points 3rd place 6 points 4th place 5 points 5th place 4 points 6th place 3 points 7th place 2 points 8th place 1 point 2 points for pole position Depending on the number of sign-ups, points may be revised in order to give server 2 more points scoring positions. Driving and behaviour Be aware that especially in these test races, the driving standards will be closely scrutinised. Unfair, unsportsmanlike driving will lead, depending on the severity of the transgression, to point deductions of 5, 10, 20 points or even a DQ from the race. All drivers are requested to report incidents and, in particular, we do not want to see retaliation on track.
