Steward Reports, Protests, and Appeals

Post by jeromef1 » Wed Aug 05, 2020 1:55 pm

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
  • [Management Review - Orange Zone] The stewards investigated an incident involving Mitchell Ian Greene on Lap 1. Into turn 4, Greene brakes too late and gets into the rear of both McGrath and Gac, and taking out Calquin as they are sent off track. Greene has been found at fault and will be issued a start from the pit penalty for Round 2.
  • [Management Review] The stewards investigated an incident involving multiple drivers on Lap 2 at turn 11. In the braking zone and approaching the apex of turn 11, Greene initiates contact with Loewendick causing him to spin in the middle of the track. This collision collects 7 cars in total. Greene has been found at-fault for a second time in 2 laps and will be suspended for Round 2.
  • The stewards investigated a collision between Mitchell Ian Greene and Erik Luke at turn 1 on lap 9. As both drivers approach the braking zone of turn 1, Greene positions his car to the inside. As both drivers begin to brake for the corner, Greene has not established any overlap with Luke ahead. This late braking maneuver from Greene results in understeer at the apex. While Luke gives space, by rule he has rights to the corner. As Greene understeers, he makes contact with Luke, sending him off track. Greene is found to be at-fault in this incident. This is Greene's 3rd at-fault incident in this race and will be suspended for the remainder of the season per the PRL penalty matrix.

As I have had a few people ask - the ban above had nothing to do with the on-track penalties listed above. This ban was a direct result of conduct off-track.

Any further questions can be directed to my email inbox.
