Steward Reports, Protests, and Appeals

Post by jeromef1 » Wed May 06, 2020 6:02 am

Protest
  • All protests relating to a racing incident must be submitted within 48 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 48 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 48 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 1 - Interlagos
  • The stewards investigated a collision between Hortal and Russo at T1. Russo locked up a wheel under braking and was attempting to make the corner. Hortal was following and had not established any form of overlap. He continued through the corner on his line, creating contact with the rear of Russo's car, spinning him. The stewards believe that Hortal had ample time to adjust his speed given how long Russo had his LF wheel locked. The stewards are ruling this an avoidable incident, and have issued Hortal a 10-point major penalty.

Round 3 - Watkins Glen
  • The stewards investigated an Orange Zone incident involving Espinoza, Utreras, and Stadler. Espinoza makes an aggressive move into T1 forcing 3-wide and in doing so missed his braking point and collides with Utreras who then takes out Stadler. Espinoza has been issued a 10-point major penalty, with a 2-point car multiplier for a total of 12-points.
  • The stewards investigated an incident between Williams and Calquin. Williams creates contact with Calquin on exit and both drivers come to a stop off the racing line. Williams does not gain any positions, and per the PRL Penalty Matrix he has been assessed a 5-point minor penalty.
