Welcome to Invictus Racing League's Steward's Office

Post videos of incidents during races which have occurred between yourself and other drivers. We expect that issues raised are posted in a respectful and mature manner. Time penalties and wrongful illegal overtake penalties will be resolved by your league admin, approach them directly via pm.

Derogatory posts which involve finger pointing or those which are intended to instigate an argument will be removed and will not be considered. Stewards will examine all evidence provided which relate to each incident and will post the conclusion of their findings.



Guidelines

Drivers should post video evidence of any incident occurring between themselves and other drivers.  If the video is long or covers more than just the incident in question (more than a couple of minutes, e.g. a live stream) then the specific times of the incidents in the video must be given.

Time penalties due to game glitches (e.g. illegal overtake penalties under false yellow flag) should be resolved with the league admin, not the stewards.

In-game applied time penalties for corner cutting will not be removed unless under exceptional circumstances.

The stewards will post decisions publically in the thread.  It is the responsibility of the league admins and affected drivers to check the stewards office thread for penalties applicable to themselves or their league.

In exceptional circumstances the stewards can intervene and apply actions/penalties if an incident occurs but is not officially reported or appealed by another driver, e.g. if something is observed whilst viewing other footage or a race stream.



Actions/Penalties Available

Depending on the severity of an incident, the stewards can apply the following penalties:


Normal levels of punishment:

No action
Reprimand
1 Position Penalty
2 Position Penalty
4 Position Penalty
DSQ


Special Decisions:

Verbal Warning
Suspended From Next Race(s)
Suspended/Banned from League(s)



Accumulation

Penalty for driver who does not finish => penalty applied to next race
3 reprimands in same season => 1 pos. penalty in next race
6 reprimands in same season => 2 pos. penalty in next race


At last race in season, next race penalties apply to that last race instead.
 
3 penalties in same race => DSQ 
Mixture of 4+ reprimands/penalties => possible DSQ at stewards discretion
3+ penalties in same season => stewards investigate driver

 

Scenarios

Causing a collision.


This category includes:

Causing a collision while overtaking or defending
Forcing a driver to take drastic evasive action to avoid a collision
Not leaving another driver space to stay on the track


Category


No Advantage/Position given back

Tiny or unclear collision, not clearly their fault, allowed enough space - NO ACTION
Smaller collision/mistake, not reckless, quick recovery (<5 seconds) - NO ACTION
Bigger collision/mistake, somewhat reckless move, slow recovery (>5 seconds)  - REPRIMAND
Very big collision, reckless accident - 1 position penalty
Massive crash, taking out many cars. A Maldonado. - 2 / 4 position penalty

   

Taking advantage

Tiny or unclear collision, not clearly their fault, allowed enough space. - REPRIMAND
Smaller collision/mistake, not reckless, quick recovery (<5 seconds) - 1 POSITION PENALTY
Bigger collision/mistake, somewhat reckless move, slow recovery (>5 seconds) - 2 POSITION PENALTY
Very big collision, reckless accident - 2/4 POSITION PENALTY
Massive crash, taking out many cars. A Maldonado. - 4 POSITION PENALTY
Responsible for a collision which results in the other car receiving Terminal Damage (Retirement). - Disqualification from Race Results and One-Race Ban


Giving position back reduces punishment by around 2 levels. A half-effort to wait/give back the position could reduce punishment by 1 level.


All dependent on ​severity​, judged on these factors:
 
● reckless or dangerous manoeuvre?
● scale of collision (minor tap vs punted off track, side-on squeeze vs tap from behind) and damage
● how obvious it was that culprit caused the collision / that it was their fault
● time lost by all cars ○ no action typically requires less than 5 seconds lost + position given back
● number of cars involved



Causing a collision by losing control

A driver losing control e.g. due to wheelspin is less serious, especially if colliding with a driver behind who is trying an overtake.

● No advantage or position given back: no action
● Taking advantage but swift recovery: reprimand
● Taking advantage, other car severely disadvantaged: 1 position penalty
● Consider whether the driver behind should have slowed down/avoided the accident.


 
Unsafe return to track

This category also includes dangerous/reckless pit exits.
 
● Little or no time lost by any driver ○ first offense: verbal warning ○ subsequent offenses: reprimand
● Some time lost by drivers taking evasive action: reprimand
● Caused a collision or drastic evasive action: 1 pos penalty / 2 pos penalty



Unsafe recovery on track

This category includes recovering after an accident, or any other move on track which causes a driver to take minor evasive action. If a driver goes only slightly off track (e.g. onto kerbs/astroturf) after a small mistake, consider it a recovery not a return to track.
 
● Little or no time lost by any driver: no action
● Some time lost by drivers taking evasive action ○ first offense: verbal warning ○ subsequent offenses: reprimand
● Caused a collision or drastic evasive action: reprimand / 1 pos penalty / 2 pos penalty



Rage-quitting

● First offense: verbal warning
● Subsequent offenses: reprimand, if we are certain it was a rage-quit.



Verbal Conduct

● If a driver is hit by an overtaking driver who then drives on, he should speak up with a neutral sentence: “You hit me there, ____”, or “I felt contact there, ____”
● No more discussion is wanted
● Swearing is ok, but swearing ​at another driver​ is not.

 

Action can be taken for arguing or distracting other drivers on teamspeak:
 
● First offense: verbal warning
● Subsequent offenses: reprimand
 


Notes for the Stewards

Stewards are responsible for regularly checking the Steward's Office thread on the forum and initiating group discussions using the private messaging system.

As the stewards volunteer their own time and not everyone can be available all the time, if at least 2 stewards can agree on a decision and actions or penalties to be applied (assuming that the other stewards have not responded or objected to the decision), the decision can be considered final and posted publically.

Time of incident in video: 14:05 - 14:19
Drivers involved: Rusty, Myself and Sargent
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance
What happened: Rusty had an incident up ahead and rejoined the track into the path of other drivers. I made it past just before he hit the racing line but Sargent had to take evasive action to avoid a collision. Very stupid incident.
How did it affect your race?: It didn't but easily could have ended badly if the timing was different. Sargent undoubtably lost some time.
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?: No

Time of incident in video: 0:24 onwards.
Drivers involved: Myself & Rusty - Hulkenburger
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance
What happened: Coming to the end of the Hangar Straight, I had great drive out of Stowe and made a move on the inside of Rusty at Vale. I believe that he did see me coming down the inside, yet he still didn't give me enough room and it resulted in an unnecessary collision. I included a similar overtake that I did on Hulkenburger (0:00 - 0:23) in which he saw me coming down the inside and gave me the perfect amount of room. 
How did it affect your race?: I spun and lost three positions.
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?: No. He just carried on.

Time of incident in video: Whole video.
Drivers involved: Myself & Rusty.
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance.
What happened: At the end of the Hanger straight there was a sudden yellow flag. Coming out of Stowe it appeared as if Rusty had spun or had been in an incident. He then decided to drive back onto the racing line which really caught me by surprise. Yes it may have ghosted our cars but just as I got closer the cars stopped ghosting so I quickly reacted and drove off track to get around him.
How did it affect your race?: I didn't lose any positions but if I wasn't paying enough attention we certainly would have collided if the cars didn't ghost again. Driving back on track like that is ridiculous and unacceptable.
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?: No.

In relation to this incident, the stewards find that RuStY-7F17 dangerously rejoined the track and caused Sargent_009 to have to take avoiding action to avoid an accident. The stewards issue a reprimand to RuStY-7F17 and remind all drivers to take more care when rejoining the track to avoid incidents like this.

In relation to the first incident involving Sargent_009 and RuStY-7F17 the stewards have decided that this is a racing incident and that no further action was warranted. The second incident was covered in the above post from UK-Tranquillity.

Drivers involved: Myself and Narayan
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance
What happened: Two cars collided at the start. I overtook Mike in the process but as it was under yellow flags I gave the position back to him. Narayan was on my inside for the next corner and the inevitable happened.
How did it affect your race?: I was 5th and I went straight to the back of the pecking order.
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?: He apologised to me after the race and conceded that his thumb slipped and his car drove straight into mine. Unfortunately the damage was already done at that point.

The stewards have concluded that Narayan was at fault for the collision with Sargent which resulted in Sargent being knocked off track. The Stewards have taken into consideration that Sargent had lost approximately 5 seconds, that Narayan admitted fault and apologised for the incident and had waited for Sargent to re-join the racetrack ahead of him.

The stewards have decided to award Narayan a Reprimand on this occassion and warns Narayan to be more cautious in future.

Time of incident in video: All of it.
Drivers involved: Sambam.
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance.
What happened: The start of the clip shows Sambam's dot on the mini map rapidly slow down. I can only assume that his first attempt in crashing himself out didn't work. In the second phase of the clip you can see Sambam in front of me intentionally crashing into the barrier at turn 3 and this time actually retiring and causing the safety car to come out.
How did it affect your race?: It didn't affect my race but it definitely affected the lead cars in terms of grid positions. I'm sure that those drivers weren't very happy that they lost out on more points because of this happening as some would have had more penalties than others or vice versa.
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?: No

The Stewards could not determine whether or not Sambamkid intentionally or accidentally incurred Terminal Damage to retire which resulted in the appearance of the Safety Car from the evidence provided; therefore no action has been taken.

Members are reminded that if anyone deliberately crashes their car in order to bring out the Safety Car they will be severely punished.


6.9 - Retirements - If you wish to retire from the race, you should find a safe place to pause the game and retire from the session (eg the pits). You MUST NOT deliberately destroy your car in order to retire. Doing so may result in a 30 SECOND penalty.

Time of incident in video: 53.30 - 53.50m
Drivers involved: Miles22 & Jaydinhol.
League (Performance, No-Assists): Performance
What happened:
How did it affect your race?:
Was the issue rectified by the driver involved?:



After reviewing the Live Stream of the Austrian Grand Prix, the stewards are aware that Miles22 caused a collision between himself and Jaydinhol as a result of losing control of his car. It has been concluded that Miles22 had taken advantage as a result of the other car being severely disadvantaged. Miles22 also failed to wait for Jaydinhol.


THE FOLLOWING PENALTY HAS BEEN AWARDED TO MILES22

Miles22 receives a 2 Position Penalty - Moving him from 9th to 11th in the Race Results.
Miles22 also receives a reprimand, to remind him to take more caution when his car starts to go off track and to return Safely. He is further reminded to wait for the other Driver he has collided with to pass after he has caused a collision. This is in accordance with Rule 3.2.4 Accidental Contact


3.2.4 Accidental Contact – If you accidentally cause a collision or are responsible for taking another car off track, you MUST slow down and safely allow the affected car(s) back in front of you on track. If any member does not adhere to this ruling they are likely to receive a harsher penalty from the Race Stewards if the incident is reported.

Jamiemet92 is promoted to 9th, Mike is promoted to 10th.
