General

iRacing sporting code in effect.

Drive how you want to be driven.

Race with respect and common sense.

Know your limits. Know the limits of the car, track and tires. 

No excessive blocking or overly aggressive driving.

If multiple laps down give room for lead lap cars.

If you are a blinking car and it is not fixed in a timely manner, you will be asked to drop to the back of the field.

iRacing session timing and scoring will not be manipulated during or after the race in the event of individual connection issues (e.g., missed grid, loss of a lap, etc.). Practice sessions may be advanced early to stay on schedule, in the event of session configuration issues.

Respect the decisions of the admins.

New Members

All new members will be placed on a 3 race probationary period. 

Causing wrecks, excessive incidents, disqualifications, overly aggressive driving, toxic behavior and being absent from all 3 races may result in failure of probationary period and removal from the league.

Attendance

There will be no substitute drivers.

If found that you had someone else race for you, you will be disqualified from the race and no longer eligible for the chase/playoffs. 

Any driver that misses over 5 races in a row may also be removed from the league. 

We clean out inactive drivers to keep everything clean and make room for new drivers. If you wish to return, simply reapply. 

If you know you will miss X amount of races and do not want to be removed, just give the admins a heads up.

Numbers

New drivers must go HERE to see what numbers are still available.

If a driver does not request a number they will be given a random number above 100. 

To limit confusion on track we do not use numbers that start with a "0" or triple digit numbers. (1-100).

Race Start

Double file.

Initial start will be on Green. On tracks with a restart zone, iRacing will enforce pace speed and start; otherwise start will be manually enforced.

Maintain no more than 2-car lengths behind the car in front from the exit of the last turn (or from when the pace car pulls off, whichever is first).

No jumping, laying back, brake-checking or other tactics that lead to unsafe conditions for other drivers.

No car may change lanes (moving more than half car-width in either direction) before the start/finish line, with the exception of evasive maneuvers (e.g., wheel spin, missed shift, avoiding crashes or damaged cars).

No crossing the white line on tracks with front-stretch doglegs.

Infractions, even if corrected on track, will result in a 1-lap post-race penalty.

Restarts

Double file. Lapped cars to the back. 

Leader gets choice of lane. Must be established by 1 to go.

At tracks with a restart zone, iRacing will enforce restarting within the zone at the leader's discretion. At tracks without a restart zone, the leader may go once the pace car is off the racing surface. No black flags cleared for restart violations.

Maintain no more than 2-car lengths behind the car in front from the exit of the last turn (or from when the pace car pulls off, whichever is first).

No jumping, laying back, brake-checking or other tactics that lead to unsafe conditions for other drivers.

No car may change lanes (moving more than half car-width in either direction) before the start/finish line, with the exception of evasive maneuvers (e.g., wheel spin, missed shift, avoiding crashes or damaged cars).

No crossing the white line on tracks with front-stretch doglegs.

Infractions, even if corrected on track, will result in a 1-lap post-race penalty.

Caution

Cautions will be controlled by iRacing. 

First car one lap down gets lucky dog. 

During caution, quickly catch up to the pack and pace properly.

Do not speed up and slow down. Maintain pace speed.

Competition Cautions

If at the beginning of a race it is determined that the scheduled distance will result in significant fuel-mileage management that will impair the quality of racing, a competition caution will be manually thrown approximately halfway through the first fuel run.

The scheduled caution lap will be announced before or shortly after race start.

Pit road will be "closed" from race start until the competition caution and any drivers pitting during this window are expected to self-report for an EOL after the competition caution, or be subject to a 1-lap post-race penalty.

If a caution naturally occurs before the competition caution, the latter will be canceled and pit road will be open as reported by iRacing race control.

Pit Lane

When entering pit lane, be alert and know where other drivers and the pace car is.

We will not clear black flags for passing under caution on pit road entry.

If you pit but the car in front of you stays out, you still can not pass until completely on pit road.

Stay to the right of pit lane until nearing your pit box.

On pit exit do not drive through no more than 4 stalls.

Keep to the right when possible.

When leaving pit road drivers must keep momentum all the way to and passed the end of pit road.

No slowing down before pit road exit in an attempt to manipulate the order of the field to get preferred lane choice on restarts.

Aggressive Driving

Racing over aggressively, continuously being in a position in which you are wrecking yourself and other drivers, and putting yourself in bad positions by poor judgment will not be tolerated.

Black Flags

Will not be cleared unless deemed absolutely unnecessary (e.g., passing on inside to avoid wreck on restarts).

If a driver feels they received an unwarranted black flag the driver may ask to have it cleared. However, black flags will be reviewed post race and if decided the black flag was deserved driver will receive a -2 lap penalty.

Practice

Treat practice and pit parties as if it is the race. Keep goofing off to a minimum.

Start and Park

Drivers must race with the intention of finishing a race.

Radio

All members must have a working microphone.

During race keep the radio clear for race chatter as much as possible.

If you hog the radio with nonsense you will get a warning. Second offense muted.

Broadcast

When pulled into the broadcast booth for an interview any time before, during or post-race you must be respectful.

No foul language. No bashing other drivers.

Paint Schemes

For broadcast purposes paint schemes must not contain any vulgar, crude, obscene, offensive or pornographic images / language.

Protests

If there is an incident that warrants a protest it must be submitted by the protest form at outputracing.com/protest. Link can also be found at the bottom of the website. 

Protests must be submitted within 48 hours of the race where the incident happened.

Must include names, lap number and a description of what happened. No replay clip necessary.

Protests are reviewed by all admins and drivers council if necessary. 

A decision will be made within 48 hours.

If for what ever reason the form is not working correctly then PM protest to admins.

Output Racing is an online sim racing league on iRacing.

We put this league together to provide a place for the late night racer to hang out, make friends and race hard. Established in mid-2018 with the goal of building a competitive league without toxic people or egos, we focused on building a tight-knit community that meshes well on and off the track.

If you are a late-night racer that is looking for a fun group to chill and race with once a week, feel free to apply. We welcome a wide range of skill levels with a minimum C class 2.0 SR license and 1000 IR.
