@Formula 3 Series 2022/S3

Signups are going very well! 44 registered drivers where 28 are premium members! We have now closed the signups for regular member but still open for Premium members. We can go a little higher than 44 drivers, but don't expect us to go above 50.

For all non-premium member, if you want to secure your place, we strongly suggest you to get a Premium membership! We can't promise you a seat at this point. If a premium member signup, he may bump you down.

Click here to get more information about the premium membership.

You can see here the list of registered drivers!

I see the logos for branding and paints but is there a mandatory decal pack for the series? Getting paints sorted out for this.

We will always encourage running our sponsor logos but no, we do not have a mandatory decal pack :)

I may have been too late to sign up, but i was still able to pay the 25 dollar fee. Am I too late for season 3?

I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the following change to the Sporting Regulations, 1.4.1

1.4. Cheating is not permitted under any circumstances.
  1. Any action having as its object to illegally alter the simulation, content, cars, tracks or any aspects of the software to gain an unfair competitive advantage (Exploits such as brake dragging)

Brake dragging is a piss poor example. Every driver in every series IRL does it to put heat in the brakes and tires. It is fundamentally no different than everyone weaving back and forth to generate tire temps. It is not and should not be a cheat as it does not go against real world physics or series regulation.

In the way drivers were doing it in iRacing is not how drivers do it in real life. Weaving to warm tyres is not an issue.

The exploit involved driving slowly (30kph or slower), holding full throttle and enough brake to maintain these speeds, while swerving back and forth.
- In real life, this would not do anything except destroy your brakes.
- In iRacing, it build up tyre temperatures while not increasing pressure. So all the advantages without any consequence.

Fortunately, this exploit was fixed by iRacing in the recent update so shouldn't be an issue now.
We're simply covering our bases for any other exploits that may rise in the future.

Brake dragging as it is done in real life is not an exploit, applying a bit of brake while driving at speed. The 30kph weaving hard left right with brake/throttle pressed is not only not realistic but was exploiting a previous flaw in iracing. Thankfully that specific exploit is supposedly resolved.

Did someone forget to media prep Kimi on the latest gossip around the paddock again?

@Formula 3 Series 2022/S3

The signups are closing on June 16th and we currently have 55 registered drivers with 42 which are premium. I want everyone to be aware that we will not accept more than 50 drivers. So if you are a non-premium and you want to secure a place within the series, we strongly suggest to get a premium membership.

Here is a link explaining what are the benefits of the premium membership :https://precisionracingleague.com/forum/index.php?link-forums/what-is-a-premium-membership.246/

@Formula 3 Series 2022/S3 Gentle People, if you feel that your name was mispronounced during last night's broadcast, then please send me a direct message with some guidance on how to pronounce your name correctly and I will compile a list to forward to the commentary team at RaceSpot. Alternatively, you can reach out to the RaceSpot crew directly via their Discord Server.

Yours sincerely,
