class, but may not change class for the duration of the championship.
ATTENTION
the acquisition of the driver's points will start from the moment of the registration to the
championship and will not be retroactive (if a driver registers to the championship in the middle of

time.

you have to pay attention to the time indicated for the end of the race because it will end at the fixed
time. At the time of the export of the race, all times recorded after the end of the race will be
deleted.

G - COMPLAINTS AND VERIFICATIONS
The judgement and decisions made by the Administration, the RACE DIRECTION and the RBRWORLD website crew are INAPPLICABLE.
The RACE DIRECTOR will initiate checks on ANY race, official or not, and on HOTLAPS.
Checks will be made in particular on course cuts, time control and set-up compliance. In official
competitions, checks will be carried out on the replays BY SORTING for each race of all the
competitors who have taken part in a rally and which must be handed in to the RACE DIRECTION
via the special panel.
In case of irregularities at the time of the check, the competitor will be "eliminated" from the race
and will be given 5 (five) penalty points in the championship standings. Failure to provide a replay
is an irregularity in itself.
In the most serious cases, or in the case where the driver does not provide the replay for more than
one race in a row, after explanation by the RACE DIRECTION, the driver may incur penalties such
as the reduction of further championship points, exclusion from one or more races of the
championship or championships he has subscribed to in the driver panel.
The outcome of the verification will be communicated as soon as possible to the driver by the
RACE DIRECTION, whether positive or negative.
The RACE DIRECTION reserves the right to publish in a special section of the forum the images
of the cuts of the drivers subjected to verification. Each competitor may request the verification of
one or more trials of his/her opponents, provided that he/she also provides the replay to the RACE
DIRECTION of the trials under examination. The request will be made only and exclusively
through the appropriate panel, other forms of request will not be taken into consideration.
We remind you that each user has 3 requests for verification during the competition year.
In free and hotlaps it will be the RACE DIRECTION (or an automatic calculation system) that will
decide if the time is doubtful.
In the case (and ONLY IN THIS CASE) of these 2 types, it is allowed to present a REPLICATION
replay, showing that the time has been done without any cut.
The RACE DIRECTION will never take into consideration any kind of claim or dispute about
anomalies or problems caused by the malfunction of a certain SP or car.
Before inserting cars and tracks in the utility, some tests are carried out but it can happen that some
bugs are not detected.
So we reiterate that the CREW DOES NOT ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY ON THE
MALFUNCTION OF SPS AND CARS MADE BY THIRD PARTIES and inserted in the utility.
RACE DIRECTION WILL NOT IN ANY WAY TOLERATE discussions or polemic comments
made in the forum on the choice of stages or on the use of some special stages and reserves the right
to sanction those users who make statements and / or statements considered particularly serious.
In the case in which a driver at the end of a Special Stage will find himself in the classification with
the wording (RUN) or (RET) instead of the time actually achieved, the Race Direction will
automatically restore the missing time with a SET TIME. In this way it will be possible to continue
the race.
In order to reset the time, it will be necessary to give the Race Direction the replay of the stage
concerned through the Claims Panel. This option will be generated at the end of the race. FAILURE
TO SEND THE REPLAY WILL RESULT IN EXCLUSION FROM THE RACE.
From the closing of the HQ, each driver will have 24 hours to send another driver for verification.
From the moment a driver is sent to verification, he will have 48 hours to provide a replay. If 3
times a driver fails to provide a replay, or is caught in a cut, he will be suspended from racing for
one week.
The communications from the Race Direction can be made through the chat on the site RBRWORLD.COM, or through the E-mail provided at the moment of the registration to the site.
The only section of the forum to which to refer for reports to the Race Direction for any problems is
TECHNICAL SUPPORT, if published in another section, it will NOT be taken into consideration in
order to avoid having to search everywhere for the post and thus facilitate the work of the Race
Director.
H - DEFINITIONS AND STANDARDS
A 'cut-off' is defined as a car leaving the road with all four wheels in its trajectory with the clear
intention of shortening its route in an attempt to gain a time advantage, regardless of whether this
leads to an actual positive chronometric result. Therefore, in order to be sure that he has done the
Therefore, in order to be sure that he/she has followed the route correctly, the driver must ALWAYS
keep at least two wheels on the course of the Special Stage (except in the case of unintentional
errors which, however, do not generate advantages in the chronometer).
However, the "tendency" of the driver to cut too much will be punished, so there could be
disqualification not so much for the single "cut" - which can be accidental, unless it is obvious,
voluntary or sensational - as for recidivism in doing so, either within the same or successive special
stages. The evaluation will however be made, and the final decision taken, exclusively by the
RACE DIRECTION.
The viewing of the films and the relative judgement will be at his discretion, so as to guarantee
absolute unity of judgement!
