Protests
  • 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 72 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.
Token System
  • Tokens are applicable for both protests and appeals.
  • Each driver have two tokens for the entire season.
    • If you submit a protest and end up being the one penalized, or the verdict is a racing deal, you will lost a token.
    • If you submit a protest and verdict is minor or major penalty, you will not lost a token.
    • If you submit an appeal and initial outcome results of the protest stays the same, you will lost a token
    • If you submit an appeal and initial outcome results of the protest is reduced, you will not lost a token.
    • Drivers who lost their tokens can't submit any protest or appeal for the remaining of the season.
  • You can't use the steward protest as a way to let off steam after a bad race. Drivers caught doing it will lost all their tokens.
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 the same season 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.
