§13. Safety and Fair Play rules.
1. You cannot bring cars into intentional contact.
2. You cannot leave the car in dangerous places.
3. A competitor who has damaged the car (does not apply to a broken wheel) is obliged to leave his mechanics as soon as possible without posing a threat to other drivers, or if it is impossible to press ESC - withdraw from the race.
4. A competitor who has damaged the car by breaking one or more of the wheels cannot continue to drive and must leave the track in a safe manner by pressing the ESC key as soon as possible - applies to qualifying sessions and the race.
5. If the car falls out of the track, the driver can return to the track with 100% certainty that he will not cause a collision / accident / danger. If a driver breaks this section of the regulations, he should expect a penalty.
6. It is unacceptable to constantly change the driving line. The defending player has the right to change his line once, provided he does so early enough not to cause a hazard or accident.
7. During qualification, the person on the exit lap must give way to the driver on the measuring lap (blue flag).
8. It is forbidden to "cut" the track and notoriously climb behind the curb with all four wheels. The vehicle should remain on the track at all times (between lines - graters, shoulders, grass etc. do not belong to the track) with at least two wheels. Other situations are considered to cut (or widen) the track and can be punished. The exceptions are: a player's visible error (and visible loss of time), participation in a collision, going off the track to avoid collision. letting off the gas on the nearest straight line (at least 1 full second) also protects against punishment.
8.1. On some tracks, the track limits are controlled by the system built into rFactor 2. In this case, three off-track trips are allowed during the entire race. The fourth time rFactor 2 imposes a Drive-Through penalty. Each trip considered by the game to be gain time is reported to the driver through a chat warning.
9. If a position has been gained as a result of beheading, it must be returned immediately by passing, at the next opportunity on the track, a competitor overtaken in this way. This rule does not apply if all the fighting drivers have cut a corner. The driver who has returned the position cannot be attacked until the next turn of the turn (does not apply if the opponent falls off the track by that time).
10. Yellow flags:
and). When the yellow flag is displayed in the sector, be particularly cautious and reduce your pace so that you are ready to avoid danger. You cannot overtake in the sector where the yellow flag is displayed.
b). When yellow flags are displayed on the light boards, be very careful and reduce your pace so that you are ready to avoid the danger. You cannot overtake in the sector where the yellow flag is displayed. The safe sector begins with the place of the light board displaying the green flag. You can now overtake under the green flag. (applies to tracks equipped with lighting boards)
11. Blue flag: means that the driver behind us will duplicate us. In this case, the track must be replaced as soon as possible so that the duplicate driver can safely overtake. An ideal mirror maneuver is when the mirror driver records the smallest possible loss of time due to overtaking the mirror driver. Ignoring the blue flags will result in a service penalty imposed by the game.
12. The responsibility for carrying out the overtaking maneuver safely and in a safe time lies primarily with the attacking driver. However, both drivers should ensure that this maneuver is carried out avoiding any collisions.
13. The attack should be carried out in a predictable manner. Excessive aggression may be punishable.
14. In the case of 2-Wide (side-by-side) situations, both drivers must leave sufficient space in the corner (on the track).
15. For a 2-Wide situation to occur, the attacking vehicle must be leveled with the defending vehicle. Equalization means the fulfillment of the following conditions:

at least the front axle of the attacking vehicle must be at the height of the rear axle of the defending vehicle,
this equalization must take place before the turn-in point.
If no equalization has occurred, then 2-Wide will not apply.

16. Black flag: indicates the disqualification of a rider from a given race.
17. All maneuvers causing danger on the track and / or accidents are prohibited and will be punished according to the regulations or arrangements of the Administration.

§14. Service alley.
1. Each competitor is required to navigate the service lane with the speed limiter activated. In the event of speeding, the penalties imposed by the game apply.
2. We follow the service lane according to the marked route. Continuous lines can be crossed only when turning off and leaving the service station of your own team and after passing oncoming vehicles already moving on the service avenue.
3. When leaving the boxes, before lighting up the green lights, you should position yourself behind the rivals who reached the line earlier (not one next to the other). Failure to comply with this rule will penalize the driver.
4. It is forbidden to cross the line when leaving the service avenue. Departure to the track must take place along the specially marked path of exit from boxing (not applicable when there is no painted line on the track).
5. The signaling device at the entrance and exit in the service alley regulates its movement. Green light means permission to leave / enter. Exit / entry red light is forbidden and the flashing blue light warns of an approaching car coming in our direction.
5. The speed allowed in the service lane regulates the speed limiter on a given track. After leaving the boxes, the driver can check to what extent the speed limiter allows him to drive on the service lane. At the same time, there may be signs indicating the speed limit at the entrance to the boxes.

§15. Additional systems used in fashion.
1. The mod uses the ABS system and TC built-in to rFactor 2 (operated from the Setup position).
