I - COMPLAINTS AND VERIFICATIONS

The proceedings and the decisions taken by the administration, by RACE DIRECTION and the Crew of the site of RBR-WORLD are WITHOUT APPEAL.

Starting from this year the RACE DIRECTION check ANY race, official or otherwise, and on HOTLAPS.

The checks will focus on the path and timing control. In official competitions will be implemented random checks BY DRAWINGS for each race on replays of all the competitors who took part in a rally and that must be delivered to the RACE DIRECTION.

The names of the pilots in check will be posted in the forum.

In case of irregularities at the time of the review, the competitor will be "cut off" from the race (as if you had retired on the SS1, then 0 points and ranking a -2.00 for the race).

In the cases considered most serious, after explanation by the RACE DIRECTION, the driver may incur penalties and he can lose the championship points, can be excluded from one or more races in the championships he signed in the Pilot Panel.

The outcome of the review will be communicated as soon as possible to the driver by the RACE DIRECTION that can be positive or negative.

RACE DIRECTION reserves the right to publish in a special section of the forum the images of the pilots’ cuts subjected to review. Each participant may require verification of one or more stages of its opponents, only if they also provide replay or what required by RACE DIRECTION of evidence under scrutiny. The request will be made exclusively between rider and RACE DIRECTION, other forms of request will not be considered.

Please note that each user has available in the year of racing, 3 verification requests.

In free rally and hotlaps will be the RACE DIRECTION (or an automatic calculation) that will decide whether the time is doubtful.

In case(AND ONLY IN THIS CASE) of these 2 types, is allowed to submit a replay REPLICA, showing that the time was done without any cutting.

The RACE DIRECTION will never take into account any complaint or dispute about anomalies or problems caused by the malfunction of a particular SS or car.

As mentionedseveral times, including in the various forum discussions, tests and car submitted at RBR-WORLD are made by third users. Before being placed in the utility it provides to perform verification tests but it can happen that some bugs may not be detected.
Therefore it reiterates once again that the CREW ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY FOR THE FAILURE OF SS and CARS MADE BY THIRD included in the utility.

The RACE DIRECTION does not tolerate IN ANY WAY contentious discussions or comments that were released in the forum on the choice of using some SS in the roadbook that it made and reserves the right to punish those who were deemed to be particularly serious allegations e\o statements.

Communications by the RACE DIRECTION will be made through the chat presented on the site RBR-WORLD.COM , or through the Email provided when you signed up for the site.

If a pilot after a SS found himself still in "RUN", rather than the time actually made, the RACE DIRECTION will restore the missing time with an IMPOSED TIME. This will allow you to continue on the race. To restore your time you will have to bring to trial the replay of the stage concerned at the RACE DIRECTION in the Complaints Panel. This option will be generated after the end of the race. FAILURE TO SEND THE REPLAY WILL RESULT IN EXCLUSION FROM THE EVENT.

After the closure of the headquarters, each pilot will have 24h to check another driver. From the moment a pilot is sent to check, thiswill  have 48h to find the replay. If for three (3) times a pilot does not provide a replay, or he is caught in a cut, he will be suspended from competition for a week.

 

L – DEFINITION OF CUTTING PATH

For "path" means when a car, in its trajectory, leaves the roadway with all four wheels with the clear intention to shorten the path trying to gain an advantage in terms of time, regardless of whether this will lead to a positive feedback on the actual time. Therefore, to ensure that ran the path correctly, the driver will be required to keep at least two wheels on the track of SS (a part for inadvertent errors that do not generate benefits in time). Will still be punished especially the "trend" of the pilot to cut too much, then there could be disqualification not only for the single "cut" - which can be random, unless obvious, volunteer or resounding – but even the recidivism in the process, both within the same or subsequent special stages. The assessment will be made, and its final decision taken solely in the person of the Director of the Race. Watching videos and its judgment will be his task and its discretion so as to ensure the absolute unity of judgment!

Administration and CREW of RBR-WORLD reserves the right to modify and update these rules at any time if there was a need.
