Within the user section, under "driver dashboard" or directly in the site map under "competition registration", you will have the possibility to register for individual competitions or championships organised on the RBR-WORLD.COM site. How you can participate in the championships and how many championships you can participate in is defined by the particular championship regulations.
Registration for races is allowed until the opening of the roadbook, which can be found in the race information. Once the race has started, the user will no longer be able to register for the race.
At the start of the championship, the driver entered in a class may change car within the chosen class, but may not change class for the duration of the championship.
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 the season the points will start to be acquired from that moment even if he has previously participated to races of that championship)
Within RBR-World you can find different types of rallies.
RALLY FREE: Events in which everyone, members or not, can participate;
CHAMPIONSHIP RALLYS: Events intended for members only;
OFFICIAL TESTS: Events intended for members to test cars and tracks.
Championship races may be one or more stages. The one-stage races (both live and open time), have a single roadbook revealed at the opening of the race. Multi-stage races will have part of the roadbook unveiled at the time of the opening of the roadbook for the stage covered; the time accumulated by the drivers will be added from time to time to the special stages of each stage.
Within RBR-WORLD you can find the different rally modes.
LIVE: Event run live, following the designated roadbook; the driver must necessarily follow the table and the start times of the special stage listed in the rally. It will be possible to enter the HQ only between the opening and closing time of the roadbook;
OPEN TIME: Event run in a given period of time, it is not necessary to follow the roadbook times; the only limits are the opening and closing of the HQ which limit the duration of the race itself.
OPEN TIME SHORT: Events entirely similar to open time rallies, but with a shorter duration in time.
MIX: Mixed events, consisting of two stages divided into a live stage and an open time.
LIVE RACE will have the following modalities: roadbook opening 15 minutes before the start of the race. 15 minutes after the start of the first special stage, the HQ will be closed and nobody will be allowed to participate in the race.
LIVE races on TWO STAGES will have the following modalities: same timetable as on one stage as far as roadbook and start are concerned

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 RBR-WORLD website crew are INAPPLICABLE.
The RACE DIRECTOR will initiate checks on ANY race, official or not, and on HOTLAPS. The controls will concern in particular course cuts, time control and set-up conformity. 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 if the driver does not provide the replay for several races in a row, after explanation by the RACE DIRECTION, the driver may incur penalties such as the deduction of additional championship points, the exclusion from one or more races of the championship or championships he has signed in the driver's panel.
The result of the verification will be communicated, only on specific request of the driver, as soon as possible by the RACE DIRECTION only through the forum, whether it is 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 the checks. 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, during the competition year, 3 verification requests.
In the 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, proving that the time was done without any cut.
The RACE DIRECTION will never take into consideration any kind of complaint or contestation about anomalies or problems caused by the malfunction of a particular stage or car.
In case a driver at the end of the stage or during the course of the same is in the classic "blue hole" and ONLY if the system makes it continue, even with an incorrect time, communicate it to the DG via Forum, technical support, providing at least one screenshot of the event. In this particular case, in order to facilitate the competitor, the DG will assign the imposed time for the stage without the missed minute.
Before inserting cars and tracks in the utility, it is provided to execute some verification tests but it can happen that some bugs are not detected.
Therefore we reiterate that the CREW DOES NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY ON THE MALFUNCTIONING OF SPS AND CARS MADE BY THIRD PARTIES and inserted in the utility.
The RACE DIRECTION WILL NOT TAKE OFF IN ANY WAY discussions or polemic comments released in the forum on the choice of the stages or on the use of some DPs and reserves the right to sanction those users who will release statements and / or statements considered particularly serious.
In the case in which a driver at the end of a Special Stage finds 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 after the vision of the replay.
In order to reset the time, it will be necessary to give the replay of the stage concerned to the Race Direction 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 communication from the Race Direction will be made through the chat on the website RBR-WORLD.COM, or through the E-mail provided at the moment of the registration.
The only section of the forum to refer to 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 when a car, in its trajectory, leaves the roadway with all 4 wheels with the clear intention of shortening the course in an attempt to gain an advantage in terms of time, regardless of whether this leads to an actual positive chronometric result. 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 for unintentional mistakes that do not generate any advantage in the time trial).
However, the "tendency" of the driver to cut too much will be punished, so there could be disqualification not so much for a single "cut" - which can be random, unless it is obvious, voluntary or sensational - as for recurrence, 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, thus guaranteeing absolute unity and impartiality of judgement!
