Introduction:

Hello, and welcome to the second AOR Formula Renault 3.5 season.

Please make sure you read all of the info in this post before signing up.

General Information:

What day and time do events start? The race nights will begin every Friday from 19:20 UK time (BST), with qualifying commencing at 20:30 UK time (BST). This will changed from BST to GMT on the 27th of October

When will the season start? The first race of the season will being running on the first week of the 2019 S4 iRacing season (10th September 2019).

What is the race calendar? The race calendar follows the official iRacing schedule. Full calendar here.

What are the entry requirements? You will need to have a licence class of C-class or above. You are free to sign up during pre-season regardless, but you will be denied entry upon the start of the season if you do not meet the requirement, in which case drivers who do meet the requirement will be given priority over you. You are also expected to be active on the forum in order to receive the latest updates. If you are completely new to the series, we will check to see if you are suitable for the league, which will be dependant on having done a sufficient amount of racing and running in the car (or a similar car) at a reasonable pace.

How do I register as part of a team? Simply state your team preferences in this thread - the name of your team and name of the driver you're teaming up with. There will be a maximum of 2 drivers per team at any one time. Drivers can be changed during the season but this will need to be authorised by the League Coordinators.

How many spaces are available? There will be a maximum of 36 spaces, with a reserve list (maximum of 10 at one time). If all of the spaces have been allocated, the sign-up thread will be closed until a seat has been vacated.

What happens if I'm on the reserve list? All drivers on the reserve list will be added to a private conversation where they have the opportunity each week to state whether they are able to race. The League Coordinators will then confirm your place in the race depending on the amount of full-time drivers who are unable to participate. Whenever a full-time driver pulls out of the league, the reserves will be approached to fill that spot. Please keep active on the forums in order to receive these messages and accept any potential promotions. Members that are inactive on the forums for two weeks will be removed from the reserve list.

Can I participate in a 'one off' race? We will not be accepting one-off 'wildcard' entries for drivers who wish to dip their toe in the water. It's recommended that you get to know the car in the official iRacing series before committing to the league. Once you sign up, you are expected to participate across all 11 race nights.

How is the Championship structured? The Championship consists of 11 feature/sprint style races, running every week, starting from the Friday of week 2 of the iRacing 2019 Season 4 official schedule.

For this season, there will be 3 drop weeks.

Race night format?
● 70-minute practice session
● 10-minute qualifying (maximum 3 laps allowed)
● 40-minute Feature Race (grid based on qualifying, mandatory pit-stop)

● 10-minute practice session
● 5-minute qualifying (maximum 1 lap allowed)
● 25-minute Sprint Race (grid based on qualifying)

More details can be found in the rules thread

Are setups permitted? The Championship is open to setup modification.

What is the points system? Points are awarded to the top 20 finishers in the Feature Race, and the top 16 in the Sprint Race. In addition to the normal points system for finishing positions, 1 additional point is handed out for pole position (Feature Race only) and fastest lap. Additionally, 2 points will be awarded for completing the race with 0x incident points, and 1 point will be awarded for completing the race with 1x incident point.

Full details on points scoring can be found in the rules thread.

Are there any recommended files to download? If you wish to create your own team livery you can find the Formula Renault 3.5 template under the "Paint" section of the iRacing website. Trading Paints is recommended to upload and show off your livery on race nights as well as making the rest of the grid look suited and booted!

Will there be any coverage of the races? We hope to have live broadcasts for the races on the official AOR YouTube channel. Should there be a broadcast, for drivers to have their skins appear on the coverage, they will need to upload their skins to us to be put into a skin pack. Should a livery not be uploaded to the skin pack, the driver will be shown on broadcast as driving a default livery.

How to Sign-Up:

Due to the fact that this is a late change to the Formula Renault 3.5 Priority will be given to drivers who signed up to season 4 of the Formula 3 Championship, The priority deadline is set to Sunday 19th of September at 18:00 UK time (BST).

As an additional note, all drivers who signed up for the now defunct F3 season 4 have automatically been put on to the sign-up sheet. I will tag everyone and they can let me know if they are happy to continue or not. People who do not confirm there place on the grid by Thursday will automatically be removed from the sign-ups sheet.
