Protest

[ul]
[li]All protests relating to a racing incident must be submitted within 48 hours of event completion. Protests that are submitted late will be dismissed.[/li]
[li]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.[/li]
[li]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.[/li]
[li]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. [/li]
[li]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.[/li]
[/ul]

Appeals

[ul]
[li]All appeals must be submitted within 48 hours of the publication of the Stewards Report as follows:
[ul]
[li]Send an email to stewards@precisionracingleague.com[/li]
[li]The subject line must be in the following format: Appeal: [Investigation ID][/li]
[li]List your PRL username in the body text[/li]
[li]Your e-mail must explain why you feel the initial decision by the Stewards was wrong.[/li]
[/ul]
[/li]
[li]Appeals shall be reasonable, logical, based on sound evidence, and related to the PRL Racing Rules.[/li]
[li]Appeals that are frivolous, incorrectly submitted, or late will be dismissed.  Repeated appeals of this nature will result in disciplinary action.[/li]
[li]Only one appeal per incident is permitted.[/li]
[li]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.[/li]
[li]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.[/li]
[/ul]

Penalties

[ul]
[li]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.[/li]
[li]More severe penalties may be given in some circumstances.  The PRL Stewards reserve the right to award any penalty they feel is appropriated.[/li]
[li]Some protests will result in a warning rather than a penalty, but a second warning within 3 months may result in a penalty.[/li]
[/ul]

Round 2 - Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Sept 24)
Division 1
[ul]
[li][ID: 790] The stewards reviewed an incident between Dany Duchesne and Carlo Suarez Valenzuela that occurred over several laps. After initial contact was made causing Carlo to leave the track, he rejoined and managed to catch up to Dany. Once Dany was within sight, he cut across a corner in a deliberate move to hit Dany in retaliation for the previous contact. This type of conduct will not be tolerated. For his actions, Carlo has been banned from PRL permanently.[/li]

Round 2 - Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Sept 24)
Division 1
[ul]
[li][ID: 791] The stewards investigated an incident involving multiple cars. Anthony Pisano lost the rear of the car on corner entry and spun coming to a stop in the middle of the track. With traffic approaching from behind, Anthony began to move in an attempt to recover from the incident and clear the track. Approaching drivers expected Anthony to hold the brakes and wait for a gap as the waved yellow had come out. In this attempt to get going Anthony caused collisions with 3 cars in total. For his actions, the stewards have issued a 5-point major penalty with a 3-point car multiplier for an 8-point penalty total.[/li]

Round 3 - Road Atlanta (Oct 8)
Division 1
[ul]
[li][ID 795]: The stewards investigated contact between Christopher Pfeffer and Diego Portell on Lap 11. The evidence provided shows Diego establishing inside position alongside Christopher through the exit of turn 11 and toward the entry of turn 12. Light contact occurs and pushes Christopher wide. Given that Diego had established inside position, corner rights to go him for turn 12. Based on the evidence submitted, the stewards rule this as a racing incident and no penalties will be applied.[/li]
