Right… Some of you aren’t going to like what I’m about to say.
I have had a large number of complaints regarding various incidents over the course of the two races. I feel like it has gone a little too far and I am looking to stamp it out before it gets a lot worse. Of course there are going to be incidents – its racing! But Its more to do with the lack of respect a number of drivers are showing. I have received reports of:
1. Drivers not giving others the required ’one car width space’ between themselves and the edge of the track.
2. Drivers seemingly going off the racing line to drive others off the circuit (and in some instances – the wall).
3. Drivers braking too late and using others as brake boards.
4. Drivers who have had made an error, coming back onto the racing line to block an opponent.
Not only have there been complaints but I have witnessed and even been involved in a few of the incidents others have mentioned. It is unacceptable and will not be tolerated from now on.
Warnings will be going out to a number of drivers via private message tonight. These drivers have persistently done much of what has been reported above.
To do this, some may need to accept my friend request as I cannot sent you a message otherwise.
If I receive ANY abuse, backchat or accusations that they are in the wrong in response to these messages- you WILL be automatically thrown out of the championship!
If you do not accept my friend request so I can send you a message – I take that as preventing my message getting to you and you WILL be thrown out of the championship.
I would be grateful, If in response to my message you could accept your warning and acknowledge your part in the incidents that have played out.
If those drivers who I send warnings to, break the rules again – they WILL be thrown out of the championship. Zero tolerence!
It might sound like what im saying is really harsh but it has got to this stage really quickly and requires urgent action. It is ruining the fun and enjoyment for the majority of the drivers. It shouldn’t have to be like this. We all love the sport and competing against one another in this series.
Im really shocked as we had just the ONE incident the whole of last season! The whole season! We’ve had over a dozen already!!!
I hope people understand fully what I’m trying to do here. I’m trying to put the interests of the championship first and would like to protect its integrity. Not only does it ruin things for us, This whole thing puts off potential new drivers looking in!
The rules regarding protests aren’t working so I will be looking to change them. I’ll let you know about any changes that are made.
After I’ve sent these warnings, I want to call an end to this issue as I don’t want it to affect the rest of the season.
I will post my video of the race up as soon as it is uploaded. Hope everyone has a pleasant evening/afternoon!
