Sundays:  4 PM PT / 5 PM MT / 6 PM CT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM BST (UK)
(times taken from worldtimezone.net)

EZT MOTORSPORT events are catered for fun, clean, competitive racing.
All skill levels are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
All we ask is that you are committed to the event.
This means, if you sign up for an event, you should complete it.

This event will see you racing a high B-class MINI John Cooper Works to a set build.  Sign-up period begins Sunday, 26 AUG 2018, and closes Sunday, 21 OCT 2018 - the first race is Sunday, 09 SEP 2018.

Driver numbers are required for all EZT Motorsport events.  Go here to get yours.

You do not need to be in a team to participate, but teams are supported.  A team may be 2 or 3 drivers. Teams are frozen when the Sign-up period has closed, or when a driver runs his first race.


Please be online and ready to race on time.  All drivers will get an invite from their room host.  If you do not receive an invite by 10 minutes past the hour, please inform the Series Organizer.

Qualifying will take place at 15 minutes past the hour, and will have five (5) flying laps to set your best certified lap.  Please space out on the opening lap to give each other room so all can have clear, unimpeded qualifying laps.  Any driver that lags out or leaves the session will have their best time used as displayed by the results screen.  No driver is to drive backwards around the track.

Please note:  Qualifying will occur prior to Race 1 only, 09 SEP 2018.  Anyone signing up after that date will start at the back of the grid according to sign up order.  Subsequent meetings will be ordered by championship points.

Each driver must have a certified lap achieved on their first lap.  A slow cautionary lap must be carried out by every driver, staying on the track and away from the grass, curbs and walls.  If your lap becomes uncertified, you will have to sacrifice another lap to achieve this very simple task, so go slow and be careful.  All uncertified times will be placed behind certified times in order of fastest to slowest
(Collisions: OFF, Damage:  Cosmetic, TCS: OFF, STM: OFF)

If you do not complete the race through whatever reason, you will be classified as a retirement, and will be ordered by number of laps completed in the finishing order.

If you cannot connect to your race room, you will receive last placed points for your qualifying room upon completing the Connection Confliction procedure stated below. This will be for the first 2 conflicts only, upon which you will then only receive overal last placed points.


There are two required vinyls for this series:
- The EZT Motorsport MINI John Cooper Works number plate
- The EZT Motorsport logo

These vinlys should be on top of a livery of your choosing.  However, it should be tactful and race themed. You should only change the vinyl shape of the numbers to that of your own car number—font and color do not change.  Locations of the number plates and number do not change.  Again, this template must appear on top of your design.

Teams must run the same paintjob, although differences such as displaying gamertags and nationality flags are permitted.  If there is more than one team from a club, then you may run the same design but have different base paints or colors to show the difference.  If desired, drivers within the same team may use different color side-view mirrors.


All seven race results will count towards the final standings. There is no dropped round.

You are required to have a microphone plugged in during the race meeting, otherwise how can we communicate?

It is recommended you save Replays. This may help rectify disputes.

You cannot cut corners. Racing is done on the track only. Anyone caught cutting will face anything from a time penalty, grid penalty or DQ.


Your connection is YOUR responsibility. You must ensure it is the best it can be. This includes :
- turning off all other equipment using the internet during a race
- being wired instead of wireless when possible
=== when wireless, making the signal strength the best it can be as denoted by the dashboard
- finally as a last resort, resetting all equipment

It is highly recommended to get your NAT to appear OPEN (found on your dashboard). If you cannot connect properly on race day, then it will not be delayed. Conflictions with other racers preventing access to rooms will need to be sorted by those in question, and those 1 or 2 racers will need to sort their problems, or they will not be allowed to race. The person with the better qualifying will be allowed to race, as long as he does not conflict with others. It is strongly recommended to get online 30 mins before race time to work out any connection problems.

Confliction on Race Night

If there is a confliction for your race room, you must find out who the confliction is with:
a) Room Host invites all his drivers to the lobby
b) Driver who can't get in then opens a lobby (correct settings)
c) He invites everyone in
d) Whoever can't get in is where the confliction is
e) From these 2 drivers, the one with the better qualifying will be allowed to race

This process should not take longer than 5 minutes.


If you have any questions or queries regarding any aspect of the series, get in contact with the Series Organiser.  Either send a PM on the forum or send an XBL message.  Be sure to add the organizer to your Friends List, also!

Series Organizer:  EZT Neo 45


Communication is key!  Chances should not be taken that will risk other drivers.  No-one's race should be ruined by someone else's mistake.
