How are these categories assigned chaps? Is it safe to assume its by iRating? Looking through the sign-ups, it seems that the strength of field is a bit higher for S5 than S4 - so Im just wondering how the category is assigned really? :unsure:

My guess is that it will be similar to last year, but good question nonetheless

It's based on iRating, S4 performance and performance in the first 2 rounds.

Yep! After round two, the AOR iRacing team will put on our nerd glasses and do super advanced mathematics and put everyone into a class. Anyone who did not compete in both rounds will be assigned a class after their 2nd event.

Gotcha. Thanks chaps. It just seems that, even though the AM class was pretty close is S4, it may well be the same guys fighting for it again this S5? :D

We’ll see how it goes :) and i hope i find some pace, otherwise might have to start in my own “stuck in first gear” tier!
Bur competition seems strong in all parts of the field - which is awesome!

would much rather see a 4 way fight for the Am class between myself, Bedford, Kamke and Towns >:3

rather than be stuck as back runners in Pro/Am

Class placements will be announced after tomorrows race, as we didn't want to base it off the results from the Nürburgring.
