Safety Rating

As of November 1, 2021, you can participate to Drive Gym races only if you have a Safety Rating (SR) A or B.
There are four levels of "Safety Rating": A, B, C, D.
Each level corresponds to a certain range of "safety points" (SP) that indicate the driver's ability to avoid collisins during the race.

  • Safety Rating A: from 30 to 39 safety points
  • Safety Rating B: from 20 to 29 safety points
  • Safety Rating C: from 10 to 19 safety points
  • Safety Rating D: from 0 to 9 safety points

At the first participation, any driver will be assigned the category "Safety Rating B".
After each organized race by the Drive Gym, safety points (SP) are assigned or removed from the various drivers based on their behavior in the race.

For the assignment of SP will use the replays of the race and the statistics of collisions recorded in our servers.

It's always possible to rise from Safety rating C and D through repechage from qualifying.

AWARDS:

  • Clean race: (free of collisions with other cars, off track and other infractions) + 5 SPs
  • Fastest lap of the race: + 2 SP

PENALTIES:

- 1 SP:

  • Light collisions with another car either lateral or at the back. (This type of collision does not alter the race position of the two drivers and only marginally slows down the lap performance of the driver taking the hit).
  • Light collisions with walls and barriers.
  • Off track with 3 or 4 wheels without time gain

- 2 SPs:

  • If you are lapped (backmarker), hinder the overtaking maneuver of faster oncoming drivers
  • Obstructing an overtaking manoeuvre of an opponent on the straight by changing position more than 2 times
  • Overtake another vehicle slightly hitting it when own anterior wheels are in corrispondence or behind the rear wheels of the opponent's car ("push to pass" or light "dive-bomb").

- 3 SPs:

  • Bump into barriers  re-entering the track to complete the race.
  • Heavy collisions with another car either lateral or at the back. (This type of collision does alter the race position of the two drivers and slows down the lap performance of the driver taking the hit). The guilty driver returns the position or they remain unchanged.
  • Not respecting the qualifying position during the formation lap; returning the qualifying position when the race starts.
  • Cutting the track (with 3 or 4 wheels) with time gain.

- 5 SPs:


  • Heavy collisions with another car either lateral or at the back. (This type of collision does alter the race position of the two drivers and slows down the lap performance of the driver taking the hit). The guilty driver DOES NOT return the position. (examples: heavy "push to pass" or use the oppone car as a "sideboard" to make a turn) . ** 
  • Forcing another driver off the track. ** 
  • Not respecting the position in qualifying during the formation lap without restitution of the position in the race.** 

**WARNING:  Similar situations, if detected promptly during the race, might lead to the immediate exclusion of the responsible driver.
