The regulations for the 2019 season have been posted: http://www.simracinghub.com/srhf1/srhf1-2019-regulations
After discussions in this thread and outside of it, we have decided to roll back the proposed Quali format and continue with how it was in 2018.
Here are the original changes before scraping the new Quali format:
3.3: The event registration deadline has been moved to the start of Qualifying.
5.1: The bonus points for practicing on the server has been changed to 10 ranking points for completing a minimum of 25 timed laps up to before the start of Qualifying. There's also an additional 5 points for completing 50 or more timed laps.
13.6: The rubber file will now be saved at the conclusion of Qualifying instead of the Official Practice.
13.8: The server will now be password protected before the start of the Official Practice instead of after.
Section 14: Covers all the new tire regulations, please read them!
15.8: The use of the Escape (ESC) key is now prohibited during Qualifying (read the rule for more details).
15.9: Drivers now must return to the pits after the session is over. We don't want to see more crashfests at the end of the races. Incidents after the chequered flag has been waived will still be investigated.
Section 17: Covers the new timetable with Qualifying on Tuesday.
19.1: Explains the new Qualifying format.
20.1: Parc Ferme was forced to be disabled since rF2 does not carry it over multiple days, hopefully, we can have this in the future.
22.2: It is clarified that any driver having technical issues when the server moves to Race session will be considered as a mechanical failure. There will be no restarts except for what's covered in Article 22.8.
Feel free to ask any questions.
