Stewards Reports, Protest & Appeal

Post by jeromef1 » Sat Feb 15, 2020 10:32 am

Protest
  • All protests relating to a racing incident must be submitted within 72 hours of event completion. Protests that are submitted late will be dismissed.
  • We suggest drivers involved in an on-track situation 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.
  • 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 72 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 72 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 - Zandvoort
  • [MANAGEMENT REVIEW - COMPLETE] The stewards reviewed the Lap 1 incident involving multiple cars. The collision was a result of Sebastien Proulx hitting Andy Spicer from behind as the field checked up toward the braking zone of turn 4 on Lap 1. This incident involved significant damage to both Proulx and Spicer as well as 6 additional cars. The stewards have found Proulx at fault and have issued a 5-point minor penalty with a 12-point car-multiplier for a 17-point penalty, per the PRL Penalty Matrix . All drivers are reminded that Lap 1 incidents can be avoided by anticipating the field backing up into heavy braking zones. Giving extra space in these areas on the first lap will help prevent incidents and penalties.

Round 2 - Montreal
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards reviewed chat misconduct by Greg Seitz and Samuel Hermer. Upon review of the communications, the stewards have found Samuel Hermer in direct violation of Racing Rule 1.3 and have issued a start from pit-lane penalty for Round 3. Failure to comply with this penalty will result in removal from the session and further disciplinary action. All drivers are reminded that the conditions of their registration for this series included an acceptance of both PRL's general conduct rules and racing rules. Respect for others is not optional and must be shown at all times, regardless of what happens on track.
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards reviewed an incident involving Tyler Dezubay and Daniel Kranefuss on Lap 1. The stewards have found Daniel Kranefuss at fault for this collision and have issued a 5-poimt minor penalty. As with most Lap 1 incidents, this could have been avoided by less aggressive driving.
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards reviewed a complaint involving David Blackwood ignoring blue flags. For failing to sufficiently yield while being lapped, David Blackwood has been issued a 3-point minor penalty.

Round 3 - Lime Rock Park
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards investigated chat misconduct by Mauricio Quero. After review, the stewards found that Quero did use profanity on the radio. The stewards have also found Quero guilty of a bump pass as he made no effort to make a move around a lapped car and drove right through the car. Quero caught the lapped car just before the turn-in point which gave the lapped car nowhere to go other than hold his line. Patience would have resulted in a successful pass before the next corner. For his actions, and violation of multiple rules, the stewards have issued Quero a start from the pit penalty for Round 4.
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards investigated chat misconduct by David McDonald, Tyler DeZubay, and Sebastien Proulx. All 3 drivers have been issued warnings. Any further misconduct will result in a pit-start penalty or removal from the session.
  • [COMPLETE] The stewards investigated David Hebert for ignoring blue flags. After review, the stewards have found David to be not at fault. His line was predictable and he did not deviate. Doing so would have led to more incidents on such a small narrow track. No penalty will be issued.
