This is an open new style event for us and the C1 mod developed by our staff and members. If the event is successful, we will seek to add further events in future. Please understand that although we have 10 years experience of regular sprint race meetings, an event of this length and scale is new to us and we will be learning. Participation in the event is intended to be within the spirit of WSR priciples as detailed in our about us page…. fun, fair, social community sim racing.

We’d like to thank StrawmanAndy for his hard work on the mod, Real world C1 driving members for feedback, WSR team for supporting this event and our long-term members for loving those little cars as much as we do.

Event timings are listed as above in the Event Format section above.

By now you have hopefully familiarized yourself with our members handbook and conduct expectations. Although we are a sociable community, WSR expects its members to be sensible and mature enough to understand what constitutes fair racing and acceptable conduct. As such we will not go into finite detail as to what is or isn’t deemed correct however we will have access to report incidents during these event and admins will be watching.

To be clear, we would prefer not to have any need for steward intervention but understand with a large grid of close racing cars, there may be incident. Drivers self-correcting issues such as giving a place back following unreasonable contact will not be penalised. However if you feel strongly that you have been on the receiving end of unfair driving, please complete the form linked below in order for it to be reviewed.

Steward intervention will range from formal warnings to stop/go penalties. Any instance of intentional and unacceptable unsporting conduct will result in black flag and instant kick from the server.
