Anti-Cheat Software

All drivers are required to use the anti-cheat software provided by the GPVWC Management (including any relevant game plugins). Failure to use this will result in disqualification.

General Driving Procedures

1. Only Drivers who have a valid licence and team contract will be allowed to compete in official sessions.

2. Drivers are expected to be adequately prepared for each event. This includes being familiar with the car and track as well as having suitable graphics and connection settings for your machine.

3. Drivers must keep two wheels on the racing surface at all times. The racing surface is defined as the area within and including the white lines at the edge of the track (or similar device). Where kerbs are present, they are to be considered outside of the racing surface. Track-specific clarifications and exceptions will be posted in the forum before each event.

4. Drivers must not intentionally crash into other competitors or perform any other dangerous, unrealistic or disrespectful manoeuvre during or after the completion of any official session. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action irrespective of whether the manoeuvre was caught on broadcast or not.

5. Pushing other vehicles or bump drafting are not allowed at any time during official sessions.

6. The In-Game chat must NOT be used during the Qualification and Race sessions. Only private whisper messages are allowed during these sessions - to use this the format is /w [drivername] [yourmessage]. Drivers breaching this rule will receive a penalty post-race.

7. Drivers must maintain a polite tone in the server chat at all times. Any behavior that breaches the GPVWC Code of Conduct will not be tolerated.


1. Qualifying will be be in a single session and Drivers are allowed to run an unlimited number of laps.

2. Drivers leaving the pits at the start of the session must wait in line for the green light at the pit exit.

3. During qualifying the ESC button must not be used to return to the garage unless the car is inside the pit lane speed zone. If the ESC button is used outside the pit lane speed zone (for any reason) then the Driver is not permitted to leave the pit lane again for the remainder of the session.

4. The cars will be on a situation of Parc Ferme between Qualifying and Race, with only limited changes permitted such as starting fuel, fuel strategy, brake bias, minor engine settings and front wing adjustments allowed.

5. Drivers who wish to break Parc Ferme must notify the Race Director and will be required to start the race from the pitlane.

6. Drivers may request to have one or more laptimes discounted by the Race Director at the end of the qualifying session.

7. Any outstanding grid penalties (including those from the previous season) will be applied to the grid order during warmup.

Formation Lap

1. All Drivers are required to pay adequate attention during the formation lap to avoid collisions, including maintaining a safe gap to the cars in front.

2. Drivers spinning on the formation lap will need to allow all the entire field to pass before rejoining at the end of the line. The Drivers are advised to wait until cars are lining up in their grid boxes before retaking their original position.

3. Drivers who suffer severe damage their car during formation lap are required to press ESC to return to the pits. They will be then allowed to start from the pitlane.

4. Drivers who have either chosen to break Parc Ferme or who were not present in the practice or qualifying sessions must start from the pitlane.


1. All Drivers are requested to pay extra care in the opening stages of the race. Reckless driving leading to crashes in the first laps will be considered an aggravating circumstance by the Disciplinary Committee when deciding penalties.

2. All Drivers must use appropriate caution in yellow flag zones. Causing a collision in a yellow flag zone will be considered an aggravating circumstance by the the Disciplinary Committee when deciding penalties.

3. Drivers being lapped must repect the blue flags and allow lapping cars to pass in a safe manner as soon as possible.

4. If a Driver should gain an advantage and/or position by running outside track limits, they are required to give up the advantage and/or give back positions in a safe manner as soon as possible.

5. Drivers who spin or go off-track must take maximum care upon re-joining the track. Drivers should only re-join if it is safe to do so, that is, if no other car is approaching that section of track.

6. When entering or exiting the pit lane, drivers are to remain within the area marked by a white line (or similar device). Failure to do so, by means of crossing the marked lines by at least one tyre, will result in a penalty.

7. During pitstops only one vehicle from each team can be serviced at once, with the second vehicle waiting in line behind the first until they leave the pitbox.

8. Drivers must start the race on the same tyre compound used for their fastest qualifying lap, except where the Driver chooses to start on intermediate or wet compound tyres. If only intermediate or wet tyres were used in qualifying or if the Driver set no time, then any choice of start compound will be available.

9. Drivers must use a minimum of 2 compounds of dry tyre during a race, unless the intermediate or wet tyre is used at any point (either of these being used will nullify the requirement to run two dry compounds).

10. DRS may only be used during the race when the Driver is within 1 second of the car in front at the detection point. Using DRS when not permissible will result in a penalty.

11. A session will only be red flagged in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Race Director.

12. Drivers who believe they are at fault for an in-race incident can take some voluntary steps to self-inflict a penalty. This will result in a much-reduced or completely cleared penalty in post-race scrutineering, at the discretion of the Disciplinary Committee. Drivers can opt to hand any unfairly gained position back (so long as it is done safely), take a self-serving drive-through or self-serving stop&go in order to clear themselves.

13. Drivers who unfairly receive a penalty from the game itself may whisper the Race Director to request its removal. Any penalty removed during the race will be reviewed after the race and may be subject to post-race penalties. Note that penalties for jump starts and pit-line rule breaches will not be removed.

14. Any Driver who is driving a vehicle in an extremely dangerous condition, suffering severe connection issues or otherwise is breaching expected standards of behaviour may be asked to park by the Race Director. Failure to comply will result in the Driver being kicked from the server.


1. Protests may be submitted via the Disciplinary Proceedings page of your login area on the GPVWC website.

2. The protest window opens once the results are processed post-race and closes 48 hours after the event.

3. Protests via Private Message to the GPVWC adminstration will be only be accepted where technical issues with the website have been experienced.

4. All protests should include a clear decription plus the session and timestamp of the incident. Failure to do so may lead to a protest being dismissed.

5. Incidents on the first lap of each race will automatically be reviewed by the Disciplinary Committee. Individual protests of these incidents are still permitted however.
