If you spin or run wide, and leave the track boundaries, please take great care when returning to the circuit and racing line.
RCR5a/. Wherever possible, rejoin parallel to the racing line.
RCR5b/. Wait until nearby* cars have passed until you rejoin. Failure to observe necessary caution will be penalised under RCR3b/.
*Too many variables to state a gap, however, use mirrors, look left/right/behind, Hud data etc. All information available must all be considered when making the decision to return to the racing line.
RCR5c/. Wherever possible, rejoin off the racing line.
RCR5d/. Never reverse back onto the circuit**
**Unless in absolutely exceptional circumstances, it's the only way to return to the track surface. e.g up a grass bank in a RWD in reverse. If this is the case, then the driver returning to the track must be 100% sure that the track is clear. Typically, this could only really be done at Nordschleife or Targa Florio etc., as any shorter circuit would see regular traffic passing).
RCR5e/. You should make every effort to prevent any accident as a result of you rejoining the track. Contact with another car as a result of an unsafe track return, will be deemed Avoidable Contact (By the rejoining Car), and dealt with under RCR3b/.
RCR5f/. If you are in a position where you have no option but risk breaking any of the above rules you must retire from the race.
RCR5g/. During Qualifying, if you spin off the circuit and receive damage, then use ‘esc’ to return your car to the pits, rather than drive a damaged car on the track.
Consequence for Non-Adherence:-
A reported Dangerous Track Return, may result in a Warning/penalty. If the dangerous track return happens during Qualifying, then the penalty could still apply.
A driver reported for a dangerous rejoin that didn't result in contact, but did cause someone on track to take avoiding action may receive a warning/penalty. Persistent warnings will result in more severe Penalties, as advised by Admin.
Penalties will be applied depending on the level of the incident and at the discretion of Admin. These may range from Lap Penalties, to Time Penalties, to Drive Through Penalties, to Grid Penalties, to Removal from the Server, or Removal/DQ from the Race Result.
