6.1 General implementation

The races are usually run every two weeks on Thursdays. At each event there will be a qualification (15 minutes) and two races of 100 km in length. The exact dates can be found in the race calendar (navigation on the main page).

6.2 Driver registration and waiting list

Basically, all drivers and teams are registered with the official registration in Discord for all racing events of the respective season.

If a driver cannot take part in an event, he is obliged to cancel the announcement thread for the respective event in good time, at least 2 days before the event.

If a driver for the first time culpably fails to register for an event within this period, he will be warned. If drivers are on the waiting list, the starting place can be assigned to a waiting driver by the race management at the end of the briefing.

In the case of the second culpable failure to cancel a race event, the driver is moved to the waiting list and the first driver on the waiting list takes his or her place in the season.

The race management decides on a culpable omission. If the driver opts out of other participants within the deadline, they should log off the missing participant in the announcement thread within the time limit.

6.3 Maximum number of vehicles allowed

The maximum number of vehicles allowed is: 55

6.4 Conducting the competitions

a) Training

If the organizer can do, a training server for free training is provided all day and all the time between the races. Free trainings are generally not streamed. Special training and test days will be announced in the racing calendar. Special trainings can be streamed by the organizer.

b) Qualification

Each rider has 15 minutes to complete their fastest lap – there is no limit to the number of laps.

ESC ban applies during qualification – This means that a driver must not switch from the track to the pits using the ESC button. If, despite the ESC ban, you switch to the pits, the vehicle may no longer leave the pits in the current qualification. The use of the ESC key is permitted within the pit lane, at your own pit area. The starting grid is based on the lap times achieved in the qualification.

c) Start und Pre-Start

The race begins with the formation lap. It cannot be overtaken! Overtaking during the introductory / formation lap is only permitted if a vehicle was late when leaving the grid and the vehicles behind it could not avoid driving past.

The leader sets the pace, but should maintain a target speed of around 100-130 km/h. The start is on the fly.

The race is approved by the leader.

Early starts punish the game with a drive-through penalty /Stop&Go penalty.

d) Races

The duration of the race is generally around 100 km (including the formation lap) at the SRC Historic DTM 1991. The speed limit in the pit lane is set at 80 km/h on all routes. After the end of the race, the vehicles may drive into the pit lane under their own power. The first three line up for the winning photo at the end of the pit lane.

A second race with the qualifying starting grid can be attended voluntarily by the drivers.

e) Pitstops

The pit stop times are set by the developer. In exceptional cases, the league management reserves the right to make adjustments.

f) Restart

There is no restart after the server has started because individual drivers, for whatever reason, had a disconnect. Restarts due to accidents are also excluded. In exceptional cases, for example in the event of technical problems on the server, the race management reserves the right to initiate a restart. In this case, the originally planned race time will be observed if possible.

g) Tracklimits

The track limits are generally penalized by the simulation. 5 cuts warnings are set on the server side. With the 6th warning, the simulation awards a drive-through penalty.

If the racing commission recognizes an advantage by shortening the track, it can issue separate penalties.

6.5 Racetracks

The tracks are driven according to the specified racing calendar. The appointment calendar can be viewed on the SRC website or in the forum.

6.5.1 Weather conditions

The weather conditions are retrieved live from several nearest weather stations of the race track and initiated into the simulation. A suitable server plug-in is used as a weather data station. For example, weather data can be retrieved via

6.5.2 Track conditions

Each track starts with online posting or update “green” without grip. When the track is used by the vehicles, the grip conditions change dynamically. Rain washes off grip that has already been drilled off the track. Dynamic lighting and weather conditions place high demands on the PC hardware. Therefore, every team must ensure that smooth image reproduction is guaranteed on their own computer in all conditions.

6.5.3 Limitation of the track

The route boundary is indicated by a white solid line. There must always be two wheels of the vehicle within these distance limits at all times.
