Stewards Reports, Protest & Appeal

Post by jeromef1 » Thu Feb 15, 2018 8:47 am

Protest
  • All protests relating to a racing incident must be submitted within 48 hours of event completion. Protests that are submitted late will be dismissed.
  • Drivers involved in an on-track situation are required to talk it over with one another first before turning in a Stewarding Protest. Take it upon yourselves to watch the replays, even in slow motion if needed.
  • Protests that are incorrectly submitted or late will be dismissed. Please contact the Chief Steward directly if you are having issues making a submission before the 48 hour time limit.
  • Click here to complete the Protest Form.
  • The driver being protested may be contacted by the Chief Steward if their PoV is deemed necessary, either by the website private message system or by email. The protested driver then has 48 hours to submit his/her own evidence. A ruling can be made by the Stewards without needing the Protested driver's PoV. 
  • The incident will be reviewed by the Stewards, and a decision will be announced in the respective championship’s "Stewards Reports" topic, along with the Incident ID.
Appeals
  • All appeals must be submitted within 48 hours of the publication of the Stewards Report as follows:
    • Send an email to stewards@precisionracingleague.com
    • The subject line must be in the following format: Appeal: [Investigation ID]
    • List your PRL username in the body text
    • Your e-mail must explain why you feel the initial decision by the Stewards was wrong.
  • Appeals shall be reasonable, logical, based on sound evidence, and related to the PRL Racing Rules.
  • Appeals that are frivolous, incorrectly submitted, or late will be dismissed.  Repeated appeals of this nature will result in disciplinary action.
  • Only one appeal per incident is permitted.
  • The Appeal will be reviewed by an extended PRL Stewarding team, and a decision will be announced in the respective championship’s Stewards Reports thread.
  • If a driver loses 2 Appeals in a 30 day period, they will have a 60 day ban placed on them before being able to Appeal another ruling by the Stewards.
Penalties
  • The penalties that can be awarded for infractions of the rules include time penalties, points deductions, position penalties, race disqualifications, grid penalties, race suspensions, or you may be made to start the next race from the pits.
  • More severe penalties may be given in some circumstances.  The PRL Stewards reserve the right to award any penalty they feel is appropriated.
  • Some protests will result in a warning rather than a penalty, but a second warning within 3 months may result in a penalty.

Round 1: Sebring International Raceway - International / Late Afternoon (20 Mar)
  • [ID: 503] The Stewards investigated an incident that took place in T1 of L2 involving Paul Espina (SimRacer_Venezuela). Paul hit the inside wall in T1, and spun on exit, stopping in the left side grass. Instead of waiting until it was safe to rejoin (see Rule 13), Paul drove into traffic, causing evasive actions by a couple drivers, and causing a collision with Richard Coulombe. Due to the severity of coming onto the track in that manner, which also resulted in a severe collision with damage, Paul will be awarded a 4 point penalty for this infraction.
  • [ID: 504] The Stewards investigated an incident that took place in T10 of L17 involving Paul Espina (SimRacer_Venezuela). Paul was trailing behind Chris Rhoad on the straight towards T10, and tried to establish overtake on the right hand side. Chris gave Paul a car width's distance of room, so there was no infraction to Chris from crowding a driver off of the track. Entering the braking zone for T10, Paul clipped the grass, temporarily lost control of his car, and create contact with Chris. Paul was trying to slow down to the give the position back to Chris (which was the right thing to do), how ever he slowed in the racing groove and it created contact with the leader of the race who was right behind Paul and Chris. Due to creating contact and unsafely slowing in the racing line (Rule 8.6), Paul will be awarded a 4 point penalty for this infraction.
Due to the 2 major Steward investigation against Paul for the Sebring race, Paul will be place on probation, and any major rule breaks against him can lead to a race suspension this season.

Round 3: Circuit of the Americas - Grand Prix / Afternoon (03 Apr)
  • [ID: 516] The Stewards investigated an incident that took place between GuiguiLalee and Dragnframe in T11 of L1. Guigui was battling another car for position entering T11 and took a wide line to give room to that driver and to get a better run down the next straight. Dragn was several car lengths back and made a hard braking attempt to take the inside lane in T11, which was his right to due since the lane was wide open. On the exit of T11, Guigui already established his line on the outside which he had rights to. Dragn did not take a sharp enough exit and impeded on the outside line that Guigui had already established and there was heavy door-to-door contact. Dragn was able to gain the position over Guigui due to that contact, and did not relinquish the position back. Due to completing a pass by creating contact and not relinquishing the position, Dragnframe will be awarded a 3 point penalty.

Round 3: Circuit of the Americas - Grand Prix / Afternoon (03 Apr)
  • APPEAL [ID: 516] There was an appeal to the ruling on [ID: 516], with the protest being that Guigui should have given more room and been further to the right, so instead of a penalty, the ruling should be a racing deal with no points penalty being given. A panel of Stewards all watched the replay from many angles and from both drivers perspectives from a saved replay from the race. The panel all agreed that the original ruling will stand. While yes Guigui ran deep and was not running a conventional entry line, Dragn drove in deep to try to capitalize on the situation and to gain ground on Guigui as it would be a battle for position. However, diving to the low line in a corner is not the same as establishing overtake and claiming rights to a line throughout the entirety of a corner. The Stewards felt that it was clear from the overhead angle that Guigui gave more than enough room to the inside and that Dragn should have taken a sharper turn angle on corner exit. Looking at the trajectory of both cars at the point of contact, Dragn was attempting to take the corner as if Guigui was not even there. The appeal ruling will stay as the originally ruling, and Dragn with keep the 3 point penalty for this investigation.

Round 8: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course - Full Course / Afternoon (08 May)
  • [ID: 530] The Stewards investigated an incident in T4 of L2 between Matthew Fraley and Jean Caringi. Jean was the lead car going down the straight with Matthew following behind. Matthew was gaining ground, however did not establish overtake on Jean going into the braking zone of T4 and proceded to make a move to take the inside line of the turn. Jean gave the inside line to Matthew, but Matthew did not hold the bottom line and pushed up into the high line and created contact with Jean, sending both cars off track. There will not be a bonus penalty awarded for not relinquishing the position back due to another accident that happened immediately following. So for creating contact with another vehicle, Matthew Fraley will be awarded a 2 point penalty.
  • [ID: 531] The Stewards investigated a report of both Matthew Fraley and Jean Caringi unsafely re-entering the track just past T5 on L2. Both drivers were involved in an incident in T4 and off into the sand/grass area, and entered back into the track on the exit of T5, in front of oncoming traffic and creating a multiple car wreck. Any steering issues aside, the Stewarding team determined that there was enough area for both cars to come to a stop, and did not need to enter the track with several cars in close proximity. For unsafely rejoining the track while recovering from an accident, both Matthew Fraley and Jean Caringi will be awared a 2 point penalty.
  • [ID: 532] The Stewards investigated an incident in T4 of the last lap between Matthew Fraley and Sabastian Maceira. Matthew was the lead car down the straight leading towards T4, with Sabastian following behind. Sabastian did not establish any overtake leading into the braking zone into T4, and attempted to take the bottom line into T4. Matthew as the lead car had the right to the line of his choosing, and went to the inside line as Sabastian was attempting his late brake. This resulted in contact that sent Matthew off track, and Sabastian gaining the position, which he did not attempt to give back before crossing the finish line. So for creating contact and gaining a position from it without relinquishing it back, Saabastian Maceira will be awarded a 3 point penalty.
