This thread is for the information of how the stewards group will work. As of 20/4/2017 our stewards group is @Ad2mny - MOD + Pcars @garyw61 - Pcars @Viperzed - GT Sport @JonoStan96 - GT Sport + F1 These guys will be responsible for reviewing any protest / race incidents and will work together across the GT Sport, PCARS and F1 platforms. If you wish to protest a race incident start a private convo with all invited to start the process. Once their decision is handed down, if there is an appeal of the verdict then the following will look at it, and their decision will be final. @stucar17 - PCARS @emmo46 - GT Sport @KoAStR - Neutral Mod. PROCESS LODGING A PROTEST (initial contact within 24hrs required or protest is dropped) 1. Driver wants to protest so saves replay IF POSSIBLE 2. Protesting driver lets the stewards group know of the protest WITH REPLAY via private convo. 3. Stewards Group let other driver (protested against) know of the protest and ask for replay from them if available. 4. If replay from them NOT available, they may ask room captains for their replay 5. When both drivers replays are available to the stewards group, they will assess, and make a ruling. 6. BOTH drivers are made aware of the ruling and why the ruling was made, based on the evidence available 7. BOTH drivers have the right to appeal the decision. 8. On appeal, the decision of the appeals group will be final. PENALTY TABLE The following is the penalty table from which a basic penalty will be handed down. This will be used in the interest of consistency and transparency, HOWEVER there may be occasion where a slightly different penalty may be handed down based on circumstances of different game platforms / connection issues or glitching. If this happens, the stewards group will explain the reasoning where applicable. Penalties are applied based on severity of the incident, recklessness and/or intent. Penalties 'may' also be adjusted based on information provided in the driver briefings for 'individual' rounds. Things like TRACK LIMITS and PIT LANE ENTRY / EXIT. Penalties / dismissals will be applied based on the general "OPINION" of the stewards group. Below are a couple of 'classic' examples of where penalties would be applied TRACK LIMITS (CONTINUALLY outside of white line or ripple strip) CONTACT TO GAIN ADVANTAGE (with no redress) RaceOnOz Rules and Regulations 2.0 - Collated Rules/Regs from @Crunch Results of protests will be posted in each season thread.
