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 4 - Belle Isle
  • The stewards investigated a lap 1 incident involving several cars at turn 7. Besaw (with Gunderson trailing 100-150 yds behind) begins to slow early into turn 7. Gunderson brakes at the 400m marker and closes on Besaw rapidly. He makes an evasive move to the inside since Besaw is on the racing line to the outside prior to the turn-in point. Gunderson hits the wall in attempting to make the corner. Besaw is able to avoid the initial move, but is hit from behind by Wildridge and both cars collide with Gunderson who has come to rest in the middle of the track. Hebert is further back and sees the incident and locks his brakes, creating understeer that takes him into the wall. The stewards have ruled this as a racing incident as no explicit racing rules have been broken by any driver involved. Hebert will be charged with his first protest token.

Round 9 - Richmond
  • The stewards investigated a protest from Rodriguez over a collision with Legault claiming that he did not leave enough room. Rodriguez makes a move on Legault to the outside and a collision occurs as he pulls alongside, sending him spinning into the wall. After review, the stewards have determined that Legault did leave a car width to the outside, and held his line. The space was tight, but it was there. The collision was initiated by Rodriguez's movement, and Legault was not affected. No penalties will be issued, this has been ruled a racing incident.
