Forum Rules & Regulations We have implemented the following guide for using our community forums. This guide is designed to strike a balance between the main goal of our forums, simulator racing and keeping the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of our community. We require all technical support questions are issued through the services we provide. Please do not send a private message or email to a staff member requesting technical help. Instead, please use our members for asking race simulator related support questions. We require all posts to be positive, constructive, and on topic.

Be a gentleman: treat each other like you would like to be treated 2. simracingpro rules are league rules, follow them in everything (penalties, pit stops, pit lane speed etc.). 3. If you hit a driver resulting in a spin, crash or if the driver goes off track. Then be a sportsman and wait for him on a safe position, and give the driver his place back. 4. Cutting rules are simulator cutting rules. When you receive a cut warning it means you are out of the track, and gaining advantage. Off track please slow down and merge back on the track with caution. Try to keep two wheels on track at all time. Curbs are a part of the track. 5. Pressing ESC is allowed, but NEVER press ESC over the racing surface - even after a spin or a crash. Always wait to be completely alone for move the car out of the racing surface, and once with the car stopped in a safe place you can press ESC. 6. Race with common sense in all the sessions (practice, qualify, warm-up and race). Don't hold up, or block unnecessary during pre race sessions. 7. When someone is trying to overtake you in a straight, you are allowed to change lines only once. Swerving causes dangerous situation, and most of the time result in crashes. 8. If a driver is on the inside and has overtaken you in the corner: give him room, follow him, be faster than him, and overtake him in a clean move. Then you are brave… otherwise you made a dirty manoeuvre and he’s probably (and unfairly) out of the race. 9. Respect the in-game rules, all flags should be respected, and followed. 10. After the start of the race be very cautious entering Turn 1. This is the hardest part of the race, and can ruin your race before it even has started. 11. Always use your mirrors. 12. No chat in race or qualifying, Arguments can be settled after the race. If you want to communicate you can use Team Speak. 13. Keep teamspeak chat in the official race .channel to a minimum. It's alright to warn for a accident or sudge. SRP Teamspeak allows users to create an own public/private channel. 14. Are you a victim of an incident? report it to the SRP Crew and we will solve it in the backend 15. Sign up for an event only when you are going to participate in the race. 16. Sign up as a "maybe" are put in the reserve list! 17. Sign out in time if you cannot be present at the event. Do it at least 1 hour before the event. 18. Always use your real name on our Teamspeak server 19. Always use your real name when entering our Race servers Violation of the rules as stated above or drivers reporting you to a race director may result in warning, and risk an amount of license points. When you are banned, you can only return to the single race events by sending a message containing the agreements of the violated rule(s) to a site administrators or race director. The so-called "Ban till you understand" method.
