Cars entered in single races do not score points and are ignored in the championship standings.
Refunds and being unable to attend
The entry fee is not refundable. Should you not be able to field a car in the race, your place in the entry list will be offered to a team/car in the reserve list or sold as a single race entry. In case of an early forfeit, once a team on the reserve list has acknowledged and accepted to replace your car in the race, you can not claim your spot back!
Rules of conduct as a participating team for the 2020 24-hours Le Mans race.
Reasons for requirements
Communication, availability, and visibility is highly important as well as the best possible source of income for every single one of our participating teams, big or small. With several teams committing to participation budgets above 40.000 € it is important for us and the future of the entire sim racing community, to help ensure that any level of investment pays off. Clear communication is a big part of this, as well as helping to spread the knowledge of the event. This will benefit the big as well as the small teams. Historically we have had a lot of problems contacting teams with important information. We have even had teams complain that they didn’t get important information. This is not an ideal situation and we don’t want to see it repeated.
We consider everyone involved in the event, organizers, teams, sponsors, and partners as equal partners with a common responsibility to grow the event and ensure its a success to the common benefit of all.
We have seen teams and drivers who clearly like and care about the event, but they don’t share or like a single news post or piece of information. This lack of support is highly counterproductive both to your own team, other teams, and the event in general. We do not have marketing budgets that can be used to spread the knowledge of the event or help brand the event. You, we and everybody else needs your help to do that.
