CFS enforces a high stand of behaviour both on and off the circuit to ensure racing conditions are enjoyable for all. The Racing Council is where experienced drivers can assist the organisers in live marshalling duties to help keep our community clean and transparent. Anyone can apply to become part of the council, however, those with previous strong on-track experience & Performance will be given priority to ensure a high standard is maintained. To find out more, please expand the table below.
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.
1.0 - How does it work?
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
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.
2.0 - Who qualifies?
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.
