0.0 - Introduction to the RC


If you are reading this, then you are showing an interest in becoming a member of the Racing Council.

The Racing Council is an initiative created by the CFS admin team in hopes that it will help maintain that high standard of marshalling that our members have come to enjoy. With the league becoming more popular as time goes on, its important to recognise that our eyes cannot look everywhere at once.
Therefore, experienced members of our community are invited to help investigate on track incidents during our events to help maintain such standards.




1.0 - How does it work?


As always, CFS will have in place a race director (RD), who will call out code 80's review incidents and issue penalties as and when they are required. The RD will also hold the right to disqualify people who pose a danger to others . This role will always belong to a person inside the CFS admin team and this person alone will communicate with teams on the grid, as well issue penalties. The councils role will be to review incidents and come to a decisions based on the rules & regulations surrounding the event itself. The council will then report to the Race director with this report via Teamspeak, providing their verdict after having looked into all aspects of the incident.

The race director will then review the incident, knowing he wont need to delve into the finer details before coming to a verdict themselves, which means they can focus on job at hand which is ensuring the track remains safe and clear for all. This is how the real world works. Sadly, in the virtual world unless you have a huge team this is very had to upkeep, but with the help of our community, this could change for the better.




4.0 - Apply & what happens after


In order to express your interest in the Racing Council, all you need to do is message one of the admin team on our Discord channel @ https://discord.gg/ucNBAxH

Those that apply will be reviewed by our admin team. Being judged mainly on their previous performance in CFS events including a review of any incidents they were involved in (if available). this is done to gauage the decision making skills of the individual before they can be trusted to review on our behalf. If they pass this review they will then be provided a discord role of "Racing Council".

Prior to each event a member of the admin team will post the "Stints" that are required alongside a time sheet to help bridge those gaps in case some members are looking to race themselves. Council members will then be provided a "Stint" based on their availability. Admins will do their best to ensure councils members get an equal length of time in the role of marshalling to ensure they arent overburdened.

Other things you must have before applying are:
- The ability to speak Good English (does not need to be your first language)
- have a microphone for communication with RD.
- Teamspeak 3




2.0 - Who qualifies?


It's important we uphold that high standard of racing etiquette as well as mutual respect between our teams and drivers. In order to qualify for a seat on the council You would need to have good relations with our team.

What we mean by this is, we know who you are, we know you and your team are experienced racers and that you understand the fundementals of when is the right time to pass and the beautiful term we know as "racing etiquette".




3.0 - Biased decisions


There will be concerns when it comes to biased decisions being made, especially if the council member is taking part in the event in question.

This wont be a problem, as council members will not be able to pass a verdict or review an incident that involves a team that they support or are part of. This will ensure that a biased opinion will not exist, with the council members being rotated for each event to ensure equality is enforced.
