TSA F1 Championship 2011

General Rules

  1. Three Championships will run side by side, and all will be equal in terms of settings and rules.
  2. Cars will all be set to equal.
  3. After the 6 races, the top 5 drivers from each championship will battle it out in one more race on the Sunday after the last race which will have a race distance of 50%. This will also mean 15 drivers qualify for the final with space for one of the community team to drive as an observer.
  4. There will be no reserves. If a driver cannot make a race then they shall receive 0 points.
  5. The times days and times for the three groups are as follows: Group A is Sunday at 5pm, Group B is Monday at 6pm and Group C is Tuesday at 8pm.
  6. The race will include a full qualifying session.
  7. Races will be set at 20% race distance with the exception of the final which will be at 50%.
  8. Weather will be set to dynamic.
  9. A member of the community team will be in charge of each group. Which member of the CT team is in charge of which group will be announced at the same time the participants are announced.
  10. The CT members decision is always final. The CT member has full power to disqualify someone from the race or competition should it be needed. They also have the power to deduct points for those who break the rules or for those who do not drive fairly.
  11. We ask that drivers try to avoid incidents at all cost and allow extra room when overtaking and generally be careful around other cars online.
  12. Please drive fairly. If you make a mistake at the disadvantage of another then please do the fair and polite thing. Treat other drivers in this way and they will treat you the same.
  13. Make sure that if you spin out and try to get back on track that you don’t obstruct any of the other drivers.
  14. If you are being lapped you must let the car that is lapping you past as quickly as possible and not obstruct them.
  15. Weaving across the track is forbidden.
  16. You may only block a car that is trying to overtake as long as it is safe and then only once. Continuously blocking so the other car cannot overtake safely is not fair driving.
  17. Drivers will be paired into teams in the interest of making pit stops fair. If drivers on the same team pit at the same time they will queue in the pits. It is unavoidable that some drivers will be on the same team so we thought it fair to make all the drivers be in teams. For the interest of the championship you will not be actually driving as a team, you will just be using the same car and we shall try and put players who are not likely to pit at the same time in the same team.
  18. When raising a post-race issue please do so discreetly and to the CT member in charge of your group, not over the website or Twitter.
  19. We will wait for up to 10 minutes after the starting time in the lobby for people who are a little late with the CT member in charge being able to use their discretion here if a little extra time is needed. During during this time we will often have a 1 lap race as practice.

  1. Our tagline was better…

  2. entered

  3. Fancy images/banners made by Bunimomike as usual :)…see him for any copyright claims ;) hehe!

  4. In like a shin. Now I need to practice…

  5. yup all sorted only thing to do now is to work out how to pit manually & also hopefully by then the handling glitch is patched.. Cant wait for this bring it on “Stan FTW” in a rather optimistic tone of voice :P

  6. entered. just ordered a new fanatec wheel, should be worth a couple of tenths :P

    • You didn’t tell me what day(s) you can do, I need to know to consider your entry!

      • oh sorry! as I’m away on the 23rd and 24th i guess that only leaves leaves Tuesday at 8pm.

      • Cheers!

  7. Awesome, count me in! Hoping for a little higher than 4th this year!

    There is a TSA F1 Sunday Meet, the perfect opportunity for some practice. Only 16 spots, sign up! http://www.thesixthaxis.com/tsa-community-meet-ups/

    • I’ll have a headset by Sunday too, even more reason to join in!

      • You’ll probably have lost it again by then though :p

    • 3rd and 3/4?

    • *ahem* I finshed 4th! Not that it made a difference, its just 1st person who didn’t get a prize lol. I’m hoping for a podium finish this time. All depends on whether i’d get through the group stages first with missing a race.

      • Ah yes, sorry, I finished 5th overall but I meant I finished 4th in each and every race of the final rounds! I didn’t word it well though!

      • Oh, and I missed 3 or 4 races and still advanced through the group stages last year as I was a reserve to start with, so I’m sure someone with your prodigious talents will breeze through ;)

  8. it would be good to know if the 11/11 glitch set-up will be banned or not?

    • Yes, it will. Hopefully the next patch will come and fix that soon.

      • To be honest, there’s no way to police this, it’s all going to be down to a gentlemans agreement. Hopefully a patch will be out before it starts, but i’m not gonna get my hopes up.

  9. Entered :) Not the best of drivers but I’ll give it ago and i hope it’s fun :D

  10. Damm, even if i had the game, and entered, i would get chucked out as i’m a bit of a dirty driver. (i tend to crash into things in an attempt to take someone out). Good luck to the entrants.(and Spike can’t rely on his luck of the welsh :D)

    • I’m really worried that I could be DSQed. I’m very dirty when playing and wouldn’t be surprised if I was deducted points for taking out other drivers as on every turn I am looking for the overtake whether it’s safe or not.

      • I’ll probably try to cause a massive pileup that takes out everyone, so i think it is a good thing that i don’t own the game.

      • Just wait for them to make a mistake or KERS and DRS them down the straight.

      • that is what I shall do!

      • Yeah it is rare to have someone take out another persons car with TSAers and that would really not go down well! Best thing to do is what David said… keep on their tale and wait for them to make a mistake or use your KERS or DRS.
