The following rules have been implemented to assist
in the main goal of Ausfactor, to have fun. We race
in the virtual world, and have additional problems
to real world motorsports, these rules try to
account for some of those issues.
You must have minimum 256/64 broadband.
Lag is always an issue. We rarely accept drivers
from outside of Australasia.
Ausfactor tries to make the racing as real as
possible without going to extreme measures,
therefore you should observe all the standard
racing rules that you all know from being
motorsport fans yourselves. Pit lane speed
limits during league nights, Blue flag and
yellow flag rules, general driver conduct should
all be observed. Corner cutting, cheating in any
form and bad attitudes will not be tolerated.
You all know what is expected from driving
standards, follow some basic standard and there
will never be a problem, cause the admin team to
constantly review your driving and we will be
forced to act via not allowing you to race in
Pass with care. If you are not sure you can pull
the move off, don't do it. Take your time to
work out where to make the pass If you attempt
to pass another driver and tag them during your
pass, gaining an advantage, allow them to regain
the position, even if it means you lose
positions to drivers not involved in the
incident. Basically, if you can't pass cleanly,
do not pass at all.
Defensive driving on the final lap is fine,however swerving on straights to block
another driver or moving several times to block
once committed to a corner is not allowed. A
positional change to protect your line for the
corner is fine.
You may move once to defend your position you are not
permitted to move back onto the racing line.
Take care re-entering the track. Whether it be
from pit lane or the sand pit or anywhere off
track, it is the
responsibility of the car that is re-entering
the track boundary to avoid collision.
Burnouts and thinking you are at the Summer Nats
will not be tolerated in Ausfactor servers, if
you want to pretend your Victor Bray, do it on
your own machine, not ours.
Accidents happen however please ensure you
review your own replay before going off about
any issue. We find this helps in 2 ways.
(1) often once reviewed and both sides of the
story can be observed, you understand more about
how the accident happened and it possibly wasn't
all the other drivers fault and (2) It gives you
time to cool off so you don't say something you
And finely, race for fun, race hard, but don't
try to win the event at the first corner. Racing
is not about going fast for a single lap, it's
about consistent fast laps over the course of
the event and playing your cards right to get
the best position as possible. There can
only be one winner. How often have you
heard the term about the lows of motorsport far
outweighing the highs. Virtual motorsport
is no different. Race your own event,
place your car in the best position it can be,
but never had the attitude of winning at all
