By submitting to participate in this event, you agree to adhere to the iRacing Sporting code at all times, well as any other rulebook / set of rules provided to you by RaceSpot TV, VCO, or Williams. In the event that there is a dispute between the iRacing Sporting Code, and any supplementary rulebook, it will be the supplementary rulebook that takes precedence.
All competitions promoted, organised, and run by RaceSpot TV work on the basis of three key principles:
- Fairness and integrity.
- Respect for others.
- Sportsmanship throughout.
Our rulebooks make it clear what is acceptable behaviour on track, and we expect you to follow rules at all times. Exploitation of ‘grey areas’ of the rules, or the iRacing software is not permitted, and we expect all teams to act with integrity at all times. All series promotors and administrators act with fairness and impartiality to all teams, and we expect the same for all drivers participating within the series.
All drivers deserve to be respected both on and off the racetrack. Behaviours, including but not limited to intentional wrecking, abusive language, and aggression towards other drivers, either in sim, or on online platforms is not accepted. This is a worldwide competition, and therefore, any behaviour that causes offence due to gender, age, nationality, religion or race is unacceptable, and will result in expulsion from the series, with any prize money awarded withheld. This may also lead to a permanent ban from events promoted, organised, and run by RaceSpot TV, VCO, Williams, or any of their partners.
