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:
  • 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 the 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 points deductions, race disqualifications, 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.
Penalty Matrix
Penalty matrix is only being displayed in an effort to help the drivers understand how penalties are applied given the infraction being assessed. PRL Stewards reserve the right to deviate from this penalty structure based on the nature of the incident.

Round 1: Watkins Glen International - Boot

Orange Zone Review

  • Protest ID: 2021S2-006 - Protested Driver: Mauricio Granda - Ruling: Major Penalty - 20 Points for Causing a contact/collision (7.1)
    • The stewards have investigated the lap 1 incident between Matt Hilton (matthilt ) and Mauricio Granda (Mauricio Granda ) which caused massive pill up in the first sector. Mauricio has been deemed at fault of creating a contact with Matt. Sufficient overlap was established by Matt to have the right to be on the left side of the track. Matt couldn't go much on the left. Mauricio had plenty of place on the right side of the track but has decided to squeeze the inside and causing a collision. This type of incident would normally results in a Major + car multiplier. Since it's extremely hard to determine number of cars involved because of this massive crash, the stewards have decided to additionnaly give a race ban to Mauricio. Mauricio Granda must serve his ban at Round 2: Sebring International Raceway - International.

    • Protest ID: 2021S2-030 - Protested Driver: David Flanagan2 - Ruling: Racing Incident Penalty - 0 Points for Causing a contact/collision (7.1)
    • In addition to this incident, David Flanagan will received a race ban to be served at Road America for an incident in violation of rules 1.3 (chat & forum misconduct)
  • The stewards investigated an incident that happened after the checker flag involving Hothands13 , barryf1fan & Neil Alexander
    • Protest ID: 2021S2-031 - Protested Driver: Brian Hotham - Ruling: Racing Incident Penalty - 0 Points for Causing a contact/collision (7.1)
    • A request was sent alongside of the protest to remove incident points awarded to Barry and Neil following the incident. Stewards decided to not remove incidents points because there was not enough evidence provided, and it's also against PRL policy to remove incidents.

Round 8 @ Okayama
  • Protest ID: 2021S2-047 - Protested Driver: Tyler Hervias (tylerhervias37 ) - Ruling: Minor Penalty - 13 Pointsfor Bump passing - Incidental (7.2)
    • Stewards investigated an incident between tylerhervias37 and diegomorales . Stewards deemed responsible Tyler for bump passing. We are also adding +3 pts penalty as car mutiplier.
      • Stewards received an appeal from tylerhervias37 regarding above penalty. An extended stewarding team reviewed the incident and decided to keep orignal ruling. Stewards is inviting the driver to review section 8 of Racing Rules regarding overlap. #37 car did not have sufficient overlap to try the overtake. As a results, Diego had all right to keeo the racing line.
