**NOTE: Weather conditions for the event are set on Thursday morning with random number generators to decide the session information. This is then released on the Blend Line TV Sim Racers Facebook Group . We also run variable under fuelled amounts for all vehicles, level across all to provide the need for a pitstop. Lastly, every round sees a safety car thrown at a random interval using a random timer application which only the DSO has access to.
Each race week will see multiple practice sessions available to competitors on a Thursday, Saturday and Monday night with sessions running from 7-11pm.
To qualify for a race meeting you need to run in a minimum of one session posting a time within 107% of your class leader and display that you can drive safely and competently on circuit
We have a live DSO for each race making judgement calls. If you would like anything reviewed then please use the review page to submit HERE. Be aware the burden is on you to provide evidence needed for review.
THERE IS AN ABSOLUTE ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR CONTACT UNDER SAFETY CAR. If you are in the safety car line or trying to catch it you need to be aware of cars around you. Contact will see you immediately black flagged.

Hovey Motorsport Best and Fairest:
For every round of this season we will be presenting a best and fairest award. While each round award will not indicate a championship standing, it will give an idea on who is driving well and congratulate them for their efforts.
The aim of the best and fairest is to reward those who are participating in the championship, racing hard but fairly and being considerate of their fellow drivers. We have devised a point score based off incident points, race control penalties, and race results from each race meeting. However, the standings will not be made public until the winner is announced so as to ensure that all drivers are driving at their best all season.
Thanks to Hovey Motorsport all drivers are eligible for the $50 prize. With GTE and GT3 competitors having their own championship.
