    Invitations have been sent out. Please also check your spam filter.

    Due to a bug, Moritz Löhners time has not been registered on the leaderboard until after the closing time of the leaderboard. Since there is proof that he set the laptime when the competition was open, and since Urmas Riis dropped out of the top 17 after the fact, we decided to extend the grid by one car for the first race and invite both drivers.

    There is now a field called "Team" in your ingame driver profile. Please fill it out.

    Since I recieved several protests from drivers about the way the penalties are handled, let me explain the system a bit:
    The incident decisions are made by a team of stewards, that are not participating in the league, for each event, and not just by me. There is always at least 2 people who decide on every single ruling.

    Of course, not every ruling will leave everyone happy. It is unavoidable. Suggestions are always appreciated to improve the system for future seasons and you can use the official channels, like the forums here, to give feedback. Like it has been done by some drivers already, we appreciate it and we take it into consideration for future seasons.

    The procedures for the drivers are also explained in the rulebook. There is currently no way of appealing a penalty. This also means that drivers cannot go to Sector3, RaceRoom or Mercedes to appeal these decisions, like it was done or threatened by certain teams and drivers. All these attempts will lead to nothing, except causing a bad image for your own team or the championship. Funnily enough, they all wanted completely contradictory things, they only agreed that they were personally disadvantaged by the way things are handled...

    Every driver should remember that by entering this championship, they have agreed to the rules of this competition, and these rules included this penalty system.
