We at SMO-HARDCORE hope everyone is looking forward to very competitive racing with minimal cautions. For folks that do not know us, we believe in 3 principles when you come to the track
1) You will race clean!
2) You will race with the utmost courtesy toward your fellow drivers!
3) You will have a lot of fun!
For those that are willing to apply the above principles, we truly welcome you aboard what should be a great series. For anyone that can't or won't abide by ALL of these principles - you might as well stay off the track. You won't last long here.
1. At Minimum, a DSL or better type connection is required to race at SMO.
2. STEERING WHEEL IS MANDATORY to race at SMO. Joysticks and/or Keyboards/Keypads are NOT ACCEPTED.
3. Make sure you are in the right car # and your login name is correct BEFORE you login to the server.
4. You must be a minimum of 18yrs old
. If you are younger than the age of 18, then you must send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and request permission to race. You will get a reply email asking you questions. You must answer them honestly by return email. Once the admins have read your reply then you will be contacted with further instructions. You will have to show that you can race with Adults if you are not 18 or older.
5. EFFECTIVE June 1st, 2014
: Teamspeak will be MANDATORY
to race at SMO. Minimum requirements will be logging in so YOU can hear what is going on during the race. Although, being required to talk to us is preferred, but talking will only be optional.
ALSO YOU MUST GO READ AND BE FAMILIAR WITH THE RACE PROCEDURES, this is in the forums under IMPORTANT LEAGUE NEWS, the title is called: click here.. Race Procedures
HERE'S THE RULES:
THE CAR NUMBER THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN WILL BE USED IN ALL SERIES. NO EXCEPTIONS.
NO PASSING BEFORE TURN 2 ON STARTS AND RESTARTS UNTIL UNDER 10 TO GO.
NO RACING BACK UNTIL 10 GO.
NO LOW LINING ON SUPER SPEEDWAYS until 10 to go.
LUCKY DOG RULE IS IN EFFECT IN ALL DIVISIONS.
CAUSE 2 CAUTIONS AND YOU MUST PARK IT (only Exceptions is if the Admin for that series says before the race that the 2 caution rule is not in effect)
SELF SPINS are not considered as part of the 2 Caution Rule. If you have more than 5 self spins, then we suggest that you give up and PARK IT.
THERE IS TO BE NO CRASHING AFTER THE RACE. YOU MUST EITHER STOP AND LEAVE YOUR CAR OR COME AROUND AND PIT
YOU WILL LISTEN TO THE ADMIN IN EVERY DIVISION. SOME RACE RULES ARE DIFFERENT IN DIFFERENT SERIES
YOU WILL RACE CLEAN
YOU WILL RACE LIKE FRIENDS
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO CONTROL YOUR CAR AFTER SEVERAL LAPS OF PRACTICE AND HAPPY HOUR, AND THEN YOU CONTINUE TO HAVE CONTROL ISSUES AT THE START OF THE RACE, PLEASE DROP TO THE REAR OF THE FIELD SO THAT YOU DON'T GET A PENALTY. IF YOU ARE CONTINUING TO HAVE ISSUES THROUGHOUT THE RACE, IT MIGHT BE BEST THAT YOU PARK IT TO KEEP FROM GETTING A PENALTY.
IF YOU HAVE A TRACK THAT YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH, GET PLENTY OF PRACTICE "OFF LINE" BEFORE MAKING YOUR ONLINE APPEARANCE FOR THAT NIGHT. OFF LINE PRACTICE DOES HELP 90% OF THE TIME AND WE SUGGEST THAT YOU USE IT IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES.
YOU WILL NOT USE ANY BAD LANGUAGE OR GESTURES OR FLAME ANOTHER DRIVER ON THE SERVER OR IN THE FORUMS IF SOMEONE GETS INTO YOU, “THANK YOU” IS A FLAME IF A ADMIN SEES THIS YOU WILL BE PARKED
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTION ON A RULE ASK THE ADMIN OF THAT SERIES EVEN IF A RULE IS NOT LISTED HERE DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE RULE IS NOT IN EFFECT
ADMINS DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE TIME TO GO OVER AND REVIEW EACH OF THESE RULES TO YOU, SO IT "IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH DRIVER TO KNOW THEM AND UNDERSTAND THEM BEFORE RACE TIME". REMEMBER EVERYONE OUT HERE IS LOOKING FOR THE SAME THING, CLEAN, FUN, NO YELLOW RACING. ADMINS ARE NOT AFRAID TO USE THE "EJECT" COMMAND.
Winning at the cost of friendship is not winning.
THANK YOU, GOOD LUCK, AND HAVE FUN!
