Race Rules

You Should Not:

1) Push or block others.

2) Engage in any form of cheating.

3) Cut or swerve in front of other drivers.

4) Message or talk during qualifying and racing (ensure your microphone is turned off).

5) Race with or unduly delay drivers who are lapping you. Also, please let obviously faster drivers unlap themselves.

6) Use the reset button to get back on track quickly.

PLEASE NOTE: The race group chat IS NOT the place to accuse or complain about race incidents. Please, DO NOT engage in blame and accusations in the chat. This is important to maintain the good community feeling that Gavra Racing has developed over a long time. The ONLY place a race issue can be solved is in the Discord channel ‘#incident claims’.


To make a claim:

  • In any channel on the Gavra Racing Discord server, type the command ‘!claim’.
  • You will be automatically given the role of ‘@Making A Claim’ and the ‘#incident-claims’ channel will become available to you.
  • Please delay posting to the ‘#incident-claims’ channel to allow some time for careful thought and consideration regarding your claim. Prepare your claim, but please wait a few hours, think about and review your claim before posting to the ‘#incident-claims’ channel.
  • Post your claim with a link to the video evidence from your replay and/or the video stream. Please note that video evidence is required; no video means no claim.
  • Please make sure you provide the exact time of the incident in the video(s).
  • Claims must be made within 48 hours of race finish.
  • After your claim is posted, the ‘@Making A Claim’ role will be removed, and you will no longer have access to the ‘#incident-claims’ channel.

Drivers License Penalties

At the beginning of the season, drivers are usually at ‘0′ (zero) level on their drivers license. Drivers could have penalty levels added to their license as a result of protests or direct action from the Gavra Stewards team. The exact penalty for an incident depends upon the penalty level the driver is currently at. License points are removed if a driver runs a clean race with no serving penalty.

License Level Penalties (LLPS)

LLPs added are variable and applied at the discretion of the incident review panel depending on the severity of the incident. Typically +1 Level for a minor incident, and +2 Levels for a more serious incident. The LLP scale is listed below:

LLP0 – No Penalty
LLP1 – Limited Qualifying Duration (10 min.)
LLP2 – Limited Qualifying Duration (5 min.)
LLP3 – Qualifying Ban
LLP4 – Qualifying Ban for two consecutive races (clean races will still lower your LLP as normal)
LLP5 – Race Suspension 
LLP6 – Championship Disqualification
