1996 AutoTrader RAC British Touring Car Championship

BTCC 1996 - Rules BTCC96

HSO Supertourers mod

For this championship we will be using the HSO Supertourers mod for Automobilista.

AMS HSO Super Tourers V1.0

You will also need: => MOD UPDATE 1 <=

You will need this as well: => HSO SUPERTOURERS V1.1 <=

Car Selection will be first-come, first serve, and opens on Monday the 14th of January, at 

20:00 Paris Time - Sign-up opens for those with no cars in the Sunday Series
20:30 Paris Time - Sign-up opens for everyone else

Any sign-ups for those with cars in the Sunday Series ahead of the Admin give-go at 20:30 will not be taken into consideration. 

When asking for a car, you can list multiple choices as in the CART series (Specific car, make, or team).

Car selection is free for the manufacturer teams competing only in the main championship.

Car selection is not free for the "Total Cup for Independents" sub-championship.

To be eligible for this sub-championship you must have entered over 50 races and have won less than 5 times. Admins can deviate from this rule should a driver miss out marginally on the criteria to be eligible or is deemed too quick for the category. Admins ruling is final.
Feel free to PM me or another admin to see if you can compete in the category.

Each driver must keep the same car for the duration of the championship. Changing of car will be tolerated under exceptional circumstances only.

If a driver misses 1 meeting (2 Races) without mentioning his/her absence, he/she will lose the car.
If a driver misses 2 meetings (4 Races), even when stating his/her absence, he/she will lose the car.

Absence or presence from/to a race must be declared no later than 24 hours before official practice start.

When a car becomes free for the remainder of the championship, it will be made into a One-Off entry on a 1st come, 1st serve basis as per usual when the Event Thread is posted. 

When the event is over the car will be made available in the Sign-Up thread on a 1st come, 1st serve basis for anyone to ask for.

Championship rules

The championship will be run over 13 meetings (26 races), held on Wednesday night, with each race being around 35 minutes long. Both championships will run together.

Drivers are limited to 6 sets of tyres per race (12 sets per meeting)

Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in both championships on the following scale:

There will be a total of 4 championships, these include

Drivers Championship (All drivers including Independants, top 10 score)
Total Cup for Independants (Only the Independents score points, top 7 Score)
Manufacturers Championship (Only the Manufacturers can score, only the highest placed car can score)
Teams Championship (All teams, only the top two highest finishers from each team score points)

All championships use the same points system.


The starting grid for the 2 races will be determined by the times recorded during the 15-mins qualifying session held just before the race.

The grid for the second race will be determined by the results of the 2nd qualifying session (Held after race 1)

Event Schedule

All meetings will be held on Wednesday nights (all times given as Paris time)

20:00 - Free Practice
20:35 - Qualifying 1
20:50 - Warmup
21:00 - Race 1 Start

21:35 - Qualifying 2
21:50 - Race 2 Start

Starts will be given standing on the grid, after one formation lap.

Behaviour on track

- as for all HSO races, it is required you use your real name both in-game and on the forum. Thank you.

- Chatting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN in race session. It is allowed in qualifying sessions for technical issues only.

- Drive Through : If a driver has to do a drive through, even if there is no pit lane speed limit, he has to drive through the pitlane at 100km/h max (60mph). If he doesn't respect this, he will get a 30s penalty at the end of the race.

- Shortcuts : If a driver gains a position after shortcutting a turn, he is required to give it back as soon as possible. In the case where a driver would not do it rapidly, a 30-second penalty will be added to his total race time. In the event of abusive and intentional shortcutting, severe sanctions will be applied (up to definitive a ban from the league). To make sure you never shortcut a turn, try to always keep two wheels on the track.

- Respect the red light at the end of the pitlane.

Application and Interpretation of the Regulations

The admins alone are qualified to solve any problems raised by the application and the interpretation of the present regulations.
