1988 CART PPG Indy Car World Series
  

 
   
  
CART 1988 Mod

In this series we use the CART 1988 Mod for AMS

You will find detailed information about the mod and cars in the readme, which is found at: AMS\Gamedata\Vehicles\Indycar1988\1988 CART Readme.pdf

  
Car Selection

Three chassis series are available for full-time drivers (i.e. Lola, March, Penske), with several firms supplying engines (Chevrolet, Cosworth, Judd, Porsche and Buick). Goodyear is the lone tire supplier. Please refer to the mod's readme pdf for important performance information before making a full-time drive selection.

Once the entry list is opened (January 7th), drivers will list their top three full-time selections (in order of preference). They can change them any time, but only the latest post will be taken into account. On January 11th, the entry list will close and the admins will assign drives based on the choices made, taking into account which combinations will yield the best attendance and tightest competition. Drivers must be realistic in their choices, because the admins reserve the right to refuse any car for a driver deemed to fast for it or if of unknown sim racing level. This limitation will also apply to cars that become free during the season and the extra, non-full season cars at each event.

On January 13th, the entry list will be posted.

When car selection opens, a driver can post their selections and those of someone else who can't be online when the thread opens -- providing:
1) They only post selections for themselves and a maximum of one other driver (Other driver must confirm within 24 hours)
2) The other driver doesn't post later with a contradicting selection

During the season, switching from one full-time drive to another is permissible -- but only under the following process:
    
If a full-time car becomes vacant during the series, it is offered during a 24 hour period, and everyone interested asks for it. The interested driver who has the most starts in the series gets the car. In the event two or more interested drivers have the same number of starts, the one who asks for it first gets the car. If nobody asks for it during the 24 hour period, the car is then offered on a first come, first serve basis until it is picked up (this process dispenses with the waiting list system used in previous series). An HSO member can only switch full-time drives once during the series. Admins retain the right to approve additional full-time drive moves due to exceptional circumstances.

For certain exceptional cases we can allow sharing a car between two drivers, i.e. they are free to arrange between themselves who drives at each event.

- If a full-time driver declares himself/herself absent for a race, their car will be available for said race as a one-off drive. One-off drivers cannot switch from one car to another once they have made a selection for a particular race. Similarly, full-time drivers already confirmed for a particular race cannot abandon their full-time ride for a car that suddenly becomes available after the fact. Drivers with a secure full-time drive are not allowed to jump into another full-time drive that happens to be open at a particular race, unless they are switching to that car full-time or abandoning full-time driving in favour of one-offs. An HSO member can only drive a maximum of three different cars as one-offs during the series. If a full-time drive is vacated awkwardly close to a particular race, the admins may choose to offer the car as a one-off for said race, then reallocate it as a full-time drive after the race is complete.

- Any full time driver who has not confirmed his presence 24 hours before a race (7PM CET on the Saturday) will no longer be able to enter it, and his car will be made available as one off for that race. Those additional one-off cars will thus be announced at 8PM CET saturday before the race. 

- A full-season driver missing one race without any explanation on the forum will have their car freed and made available for someone else. If a full-season driver is absent for two races in a row or four races in total, they will lose their drive, even if they declare their absence each time. Under no circumstances can a driver have their name attached to more than one car at a time (i.e. driving a one-off car one weekend while at the same time having a full-time drive booked in advance for subsequent races). This rule can be disregarded due to admins digression
   
Championship Rules

The championship will be run over fifteen rounds.

  
Points System

Points will be awarded to the top 12 in each race according to following chart.  

Position 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th11th12th
Points20161412108654321
  
Both finishers and non-finishers can score points.  
One bonus point is awarded for pole position, and one bonus point for the most race laps led.

There will be one drivers’ championship, as well as the informal "Triple Crown" (a driver winning all three 500 mile races will be declared Triple Crown Champion).

  
Qualifying

On road courses, a one-hour qualifying session will determine the race grid. 

On ovals, qualifying will consist of a two-lap shootout for each driver. This 5-minute session will be a "private" one as per AMS rules, which means each driver will be alone on the track although everybody will run simultaneously. Each driver will be allowed a maximum of four laps : one warming up lap, two qualifying laps, and the slowing down lap. Any driver covering more than four laps will have his qualifying time disallowed and will be put at the end of the qualifying order. The Indianapolis 500 grid will be determined by the traditional 4-lap Pole Day on a date prior to the actual race weekend. Special qualifying instructions for select races will be disseminated one week prior to said races.


Event Schedule 

All meetings will be held on Sunday nights (all times given as CET)

Race Start Procedure

The start will be given flying behind the game-controlled pace-car (special formats will be outlined for 500 mile races).


Full Course Yellow Procedure (En français en dessous)

This series will see the appearance of the Full Course Yellow procedure. When AMS judges that a situation is risky (a car stopped on the track, a spin on a speedway etc..), he will throw a Yellow Flag. From the time this Yellow Flag is thrown, overtaking is forbidden, but if you have doubt about your position, AMS will tell you where you have to be when you will cut the start/finish line. 

When the Safety Car is out, you must keep a normal pace until you reach the the line of cars behind the SC. Otherwise you'll get a penalty. Same when you exit the pitlane under yellow, you have to be quick enough to rejoin the SC.

/!\ On oval track the leader will have to be careful to not overtake the Safety Car when the latter is exiting the pitlane. /!\

*** VF ***

Ce championnat est marqué par l'apparition de la procédure de Full Course Yellow. Quand AMS jugera qu'une situation est à risque (une voiture arretée au mauvais endroit, un tête à queue sur un ovale) il sortira la voiture de sécurité. Une fois cette procédure lancée, il est interdit de dépasser. Si vous avez des doutes AMS vous dira de toute façon ou vous placer une fois que vous aurez franchi la ligne de départ/arrivée. 

Lorsque la voiture de sécurité est sortie, vous devez conserver un rythme normal jusqu'à ce que vous rejoigniez la file des voitures derrière le SC, sinon vous risquez de vous voir infliger une pénalité. Même chose lorsque vous ressortez des stands, vous ne devez pas trainer pour rejoindre la voiture de sécurité.

/!\ Sur les ovales, le leader devra faire attention à ne pas dépasser la voiture de sécurité lorsque celui ci est en train de sortir des stands. /!\


Restart Spacing Rule (En français en dessous)
 
On restarts, all cars must be no more than two car lengths apart, and single file.
Failure to observe this rule during the race could result in a post-race penalty. 

*** VF ***

Lors des restarts, toutes les voitures ne doivent pas être séparées par plus de 2 longueurs de voiture et sur la même file.
Tout manquement à cette règle peut entrainer des pénalités après course.


Training Server

A training server running on the next scheduled track will be online permanently. Password : hso88

  
Behaviour on track

A few behaviour rules :

- Pay attention to the pre race briefing staying OFF track. Specific instructions for each event might be given.

- Changing line to defend position is admissible only once. Weaving and continuous change of lines is not permissible. Change of line must be completed before the braking point previous to the turn.

- as for all HSO races, it is required you use your real name both in-game and on the forum. Thank you.

- Chatting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN in race session. It is allowed in qualifying sessions for technical issues only.

- Drive Through : If a driver has to do a drive through, even if there is no pit lane speed limit, he has to drive through the pitlane at 100km/h max (60mph). If he doesn't respect this, he will get a 30s penalty at the end of the race.

- If you have a spin on the course, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure the track is sufficiently clear before you rejoin the race.

- Respect the red condition at the end of the pitlane.

 
Application and Interpretation of the Regulations

The admins alone are qualified to solve any problems raised by the application and the interpretation of the present regulations.

I'm not finding any rules on shared cars. So Jan Kowalski and I have applied to share a full-time ride this season, and I've promised him that if we get a car, he can have for the Indy 500. Can I then ask for a one-off ride for that event?

Yes, you can ask for a one off.

Great, thank you. Does that go for other races too, theoretically speaking?

Depends on the race. Just bare in mind that you cannot pick up a one off from a driver that has said he will be absent (Another full time driver) That is deemed you are leaving/freeing your full time drive. Only from a one off that is specific to that round.

Exactly, any shared car driver can pick the extra one-offs if his co-driver is racing, which are mostly at the 500 milers.

Understood! I'm interested in racing at the Meadowlands too, but that's well into the future.
