Balance of Performance[edit]

There is none. Run what ya brung. What you link into the doc is what gets used in the server.

Time Trial Procedure[edit]

SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON OUTCOME OF TEST ROUND

- Enter server on the designated time and wait for race control to start the event and call your name.

- Line up before the start line.

- Race control will initiate countdown before your run. You can start your run once you hear 'GO'.

- Assetto Corsa should take care of timing by itself. Your time as stated in server messages will be the time set in the standings.

Time Trial Rules[edit]

Just follow procedure and don't be a dick.

Each round you will have 5 attempts to set a time. Drivers will only go one at a time. The fastest time from these attempts will be recorded in the final standings.

Latecomers will be counted as DNS in every attempt they have missed.

If you mess up the line-up procedure, you can ESC back to pits and redo the procedure. Just don't waste everyone's time or you'll get kicked or maybe even earn a series ban.

A car crash, or a disconnection from the server in the middle of an attempt will be considered a DNF, and you have to wait for your next attempt to try again. You can only redo your run from an aborted start granted at Race Control's discretion. If you spin or have a car crash but are still able to continue the run, you have the option of ESCing back to pits, or continuing. Note that if you ESC back to pits in this situation the attempt will be considered a DNF and you will have to wait for the next attempt to try again.
