1. Joins during the season

If a driver wants to join during the season, this is generally possible as long as fewer than 66 drivers are registered. Joining the current season is as follows:

  • the first race weekend is perceived as a normal participant on trial, i.e. all rules and duties are active.
  • The only exception is that the participant takes part in qualifying on a trial basis, but is ranked last regardless of his lap time.
  • The behavior during the first race weekend will be used to decide whether or not a driver will be admitted.
  • it is allowed under the remaining start numbers and vehicles to get voted.
  • In the event of admission, the driver retains the vehicle and start number and is included in the race as a full participant.
  • if the driver is not admitted, he will not be included in the ranking and cannot try again for the rest of the season.

If you would like to join during the season, contact "BM34 fungamez" via Xbox LIVE message no later than Wednesday 4:00 pm before the next race date.

2.1 Balance of Performance

In order to give everyone the same chance of winning the championship, there will be a so-called "Balance of Performance" (short: B.o.P.). By precisely specifying the upgrades to be installed, this ensures that all vehicles in a class perform in a balanced manner over the entire course of the championship. Important: Depending on the route, one or the other vehicle can have a slight advantage. However, this should balance out over several races. We reserve the right to B.o.P. adapt during the season.

You can find the list of mandatory upgrades here.

There will be a number of sample groups that must be attached to the vehicles in the designated places. We give you a free hand in the creation of your designs, but ask you to refrain from borderline motifs. If we notice something that is not right in our eyes, you will immediately receive the instruction to remove the corresponding motif. Anyone who does not comply can be excluded from the championship.

The mandatory stickers are all available for download at BM34 fungamez.

The following stickers are mandatory:

Number plate: LMP2 in blue; GTLM in green

Class badge: LMP2 with "P2" in blue; GTLM with "GT" in green

Rating badge: LMP2 Pro with "Pro" in blue, LMP2 Am with "Am" in blue;

GTLM Pro with "Pro" in green, GTLM Am with "Am" in green

The stickers must be attached as follows:

... side - number badge, class badge, rating badge on the area between the two wheel arches

... Above - number plate on the area in front of the driver's cockpit

... P2 class badge, P2 rating badge - on top of the area in front of the driver's cockpit

... GT class badge, GT rating badge - on the rear of the rear bumper

IMPORTANT: If you change the size of the badges, all those on the same area (side, roof or rear) will change to the same scale.

The start numbers must be inserted into the number badges as follows:

color white

Font 7

The pictures show examples of the positioning of the mandatory badges. An alternative attachment within the fixed areas is of course allowed.

In order to give more than just 22 drivers the opportunity, we will distribute the field of drivers - depending on the number of participants - over up to three grids. Some may still know this from the GTC 2018, or have come across it elsewhere. However, we have developed our own multi-grid format:

The division of who drives in which grid takes place anew for each race and is determined based on the lap times from the qualifying sessions. The total number of participants also determines how many drivers start in a grid, as these are always evenly distributed across the grids.

That means with ...

... 66-45 total starters - 3 grids of 11/12 to 22 drivers each

... 44-23 total starters - 2 grids of 11/12 to 22 drivers each

... <22 total starters - 1 grid with up to 22 drivers.

  • You can take part in the championship as an individual or as a team.
  • Teams cannot start across classes.
  • As a single starter you will be listed in the team ranking as (P) for "Privateer".
  • Teams can consist of two or three drivers.
  • In the case of three drivers, only the points of the two best-placed drivers will be included in the team ranking.
  • Every driver has to compete for a racing team, the team name is up to you.
  • The individual drivers of a team do not have to drive the same vehicle.
  • If you want to compete with more than three drivers, you can divide your team into "sub-teams": e.g. Team Motorsport Alpha and Team Motorsport Beta.

All sessions will be in time started. A maximum of three minutes is waited for drivers who have a problem shortly before the start of the session.

Qualifying 1, Saturday:

  • 7:00 p.m. - lobby
  • 7:05 p.m. - Free practice (50 min.)

5.2 Deregistration / replacement

The deregistration requirement serves for better planning. Should you not be able to participate in a mandatory session, you have to inform us about this up to 2 hours before the start of this session using the form. If you are absent from qualifying without deregistering, but would like to take part in the race, you must notify BM34 fungamez by 2 p.m. on the day of the race. If you fail to do this in two different races, you will be replaced by a participant on the substitute list for the rest of the championship. This receives <25% of your points. If you are unable to participate in a racing session, your seat will be given to a replacement driver for the race.

-> to the deregistration form

The following settings are allowed for the driving aids:

  • TCS: TCS on / off
  • Easy braking: ABS on / off
  • STM: STM on / off
  • Easiest steering: normal / simulation
  • Friction assistant: off
  • Collision assistant: off

all other driving aids are not regulated.

In the races marked with "(W)" in the racing calendar, the weather on the real racetrack serves as a template for the FLMS sessions. This means that e.g. the weather forecast for August 11th. between 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. German time (CET) in Alton, Virginia, USA the weather dictates for the FLMS race. If it rains on the real track at this time, it will also rain in the FLMS race.

Of course, we cannot change the weather during the session, which is why the weather forecast two hours before the start of the session is used as a template and is no longer changed.

The weather forecast will be announced in the race information, which will be online from 8:00 p.m. on Friday evening of the race weekend.

This has no influence on the time of day, i.e. all races are still run during the day.

If it doesn't rain during the session, Forza will drive in "day" mode, not in "rain" mode.

We use the forecast from weather.com, which you get automatically displayed in the search results if you e.g. "Weather Nürburgring" googlet.

Awarding points in multi-grid format:

The procedure for scoring a race is as follows:

The first place from grid 1 is the overall winner. The following positions are assigned based on the final order from grid 1.

The first placed from grid 2 occupies the point rank behind the last placed from grid 1 who finished the race etc.

In the team classification, the points of the two best drivers on a team are added together.

In the event of disconnects or DNFs for other reasons, the driver is included in the ranking behind the overall last placed and receives points accordingly. If several drivers drop out during the race, their starting position decides the order. Drivers who did not take part in the race session are counted as DNS and do not receive any points.

Deletion result:

At the end of the season, the worst result of a driver is removed from the driver and team standings in order to give everyone the chance to skip a race without being disadvantaged.

The point system is identical in all ratings:

The control of compliance with the rules is carried out by a racing committee. After each race, this will evaluate at least the first 20 minutes of the in-game replay from all grids, as well as all video material that is presented to you. Incidents recorded by a live stream can also be evaluated. The evaluation of the video material will take place until the Saturday after the race day. During this time, complaints against drivers can be submitted to one of the race stewards via Xbox private message. Incidents without video material cannot be evaluated. If a race steward himself is involved in an incident, he has no say in the evaluation of this incident.

The racing committee consists of the following people:

BM26 EastSite, M2daStreetz, BM09 Pace, PMC F4n4tiC, Arctic Squ1rrel

Since we cannot give seconds penalties due to the race format, there will be a system with penalty points that replaces the time penalties. If 5 penalty points are reached, one point will be deducted from the championship standings (driver & team).
