The remaining divisions will be divided equally. In the case of an odd number, the remaining racer will be placed in the higher division. In the case of full grids, only the best top according to Hotlaps will participate. The organiser reserves the right to add VIP racers above the 30 cars limit, to each division.
Every racer is obliged to use the car he signed up with. The car and driver's position in the car (LHD or RHD) will be listed in the application and cannot be changed during the season. Every racer is obliged to upload a valid skin using mandatory elements according to the Annex on this webpage:
A racer who starts free practice with an invalid skin will be asked to use a correct one. If he doesn't have a valid skin at the start of the qualification, he will get a ban for 12 hours.

All racers will connect to the server at least 10 minutes before the start of the qualification. Racers must use only the track, have max 2 wheels on the grass and must not hit cones, tires, crash barriers, etc. (simply HotLap Valid Check ok). Repeated violations of this rule will result in disqualification from the entire race evening. Anyone, who violates the HLVC rule during a race and gains an advantage over the chased racer (overtaking) will be penalized after the race with losing 5 positions in the race and the results will be adjusted accordingly. Whoever violates this repeatedly to improve laptimes will be disqualified from the event. Use the sense for Fair Play, do not drive in the opposite direction and do not intentionally crash other racers! Violation of this will be punished by disqualification from the championship. For the purpose of resolving protests each racer is obliged to turn on automatic replay saving: "options -> game -> multiplayer replay save set to "[auto save - not recommended]".
Furthermore, the Buggyra Zero Mileage GT Cup participants must adhere to the Course of the Evening and General Racing Rules The organiser reserves the right to change these. Races are not won on the first lap! Each first lap of each race will be automatically checked by the sporting stewards and any violations of these rules will be automatically penalized.
If any racer thinks that the other was not acting fair and that it was not just a coincidence, it is
recommended to lodge a protest to the Sporting Stewards with the time and description of the situation. Each protest can only be about one incident and against one racer, stating the violated rule number.
The protest period is 24 hours after the end of the race. After that, no further protests will be accepted. The second racer involved will be immediately informed about the protest and will be asked to give his explanation of the situation. He has 7 days to reply. The protest will be evaluated by a committee of three members appointed by the Chief Sporting Steward so, that all three are uninterested. All correspondence since the protest was lodged will be sent in copies to all participants (involved racers + Chief Steward + 2 Stewards). After hearing both sides of the incident or after the 7 day reply period has expired, the Stewards will decide if the protest is valid and if so, impose a penalty on the offender. The decision will be sent to both parties and announced on the web page with the race results.
The decisions of the Stewards cannot be appealed.
The penalty is proposed by the Chief Sporting Steward and confirmed by the Stewards. The highest possible penalties are:First warning - loss of 50 points maximum
In order to gain points for classification, the racer must finish at least 75% of rounds driven by the winner (rounded down). Jumping into the garage during the race will be considered withdrawal from the race. The results will be published as soon as possible. The results will become official after the protest period has expired or all protests have been resolved. Overall ranking table will be one for all divisions and the winners will be announced according to this table. At the end of the season, 3 worst sprint race results and 3 worst endurance race results will be dropped (lowest point gain). To have some idea of the standings throughout the season, provisionally one set of results will be dropped after the 4th Round, two sets after the 7th Round, always dropping the worst results. The prizes will be awarded to the leading racers as set out in the notifying article. In the case of equal number of points the winner will be determined by the number of won races, in the case of equality of won races, the position in the last race will be decisive.
When you connect to the game server, so please do not run other programs, mainly download / upload, instant messaging, email clients, etc. in the background, as these will take up
the performance of the computer and also the valuable capacity of the internet connection and therefore can spoil the race for you and others. In case a significant number of racers
get disconnected due to lag, time-out, etc. (voluntarily disconnected are not counted), but get back quickly, the qualification will be prolonged to make up for the lost time, but 10 minutes maximum.
Should this happen in the race following rules will apply:
• If a significant number of racers get disconnected due to lag, time-out, etc. (voluntarily disconnected are not counted) within first two laps, the race will restart in full length.
• If this happens after the leader finished more than 2 laps. The race will be RED FLAGGED. The standings of the last completed lap before the mass timeout will make the start grid for the restarted race, which will be of remaining distance.
• If this happens after the leader completed more than 80% of the race length, the standings on the lap before the mass timeout will be considered final results.
• If this happens 2 times, the race of remaining distance will be held on an alternative date.
!!! It is up to each racer to consider whether his connection and hardware is of sufficient quality for online racing !!!
The organizers of the Buggyra Zero Mileage GT Cup wish all participants a lot of fun, fair and successful races.
