    IFCA events are catered for fun, clean, competitive racing. All skill levels are welcomed to participate but all we ask is that you are committed to the event. This means, if you sign up an event, you should complete it.
    If you are not committed, then the IFCA isn't for you

    This event will see you participate in a 2 race format where drivers will race in a spec built car with only limited tuning available! It is also restricted to the first 100 Sign Ups only due to the gamertags friends list size restriction

    Sign Up period begins Friday 23rd July and closes Monday 16th August - the first race is Tuesday 10th August

    Competing in this series means you will collect IFCA Championship Points - these points will determine who will be in the grande finale at the end of the season, to play for money and prizes, as well as the bragging rights!

    To learn more about this and what the IFCA Championship is all about, click here

    Turn 10 - They will be providing prize cars and credits

    IFCA GP2Replica Series 2 can be turned into a Pro-Paying event! This means you can play for real money. Click here to learn more. This option closes 16th August

    You do not need to be in a team to participate, but teams are supported. A team must have 3 drivers, with the 2 best point scoring drivers contributing to the team for both races of a round. Teams are frozen when the Sign Up period has closed, or when a drivers runs his first race. Team points are based off the regular points scheme, with a permitted dropped result from your final total


    Please be online and ready to race at 14:00 CST / 20:00 GMT (UK) / 03:00 West OZ (weds). All drivers will get an invite from their room host

    Qualifying will take place at 14:20 CST / 20:20 GMT (UK) / 03:20 West OZ (weds), and you will have 5 laps to set your best certified lap. Please space out on the opening lap to give each other room so you can all have clear, unimpeded qualifying laps. Any drivers that lagout or leave the session, will have their best time used as displayed by the results screen. No driver is to drive backwards around the track

    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, Cosmetic Damage, TCS: OFF)


    Race Night will begin once Qualifying is completed and the times collected and ordered. All drivers will get an invite from their room host

    Race 1
    Race 1's grid will be based on the qualifying result and will begin with a Pace Lap for the rolling 2x2 gridded start on Lap 2 which will be controlled by the Pole Sitter. He can choose to start on the left or the right side of the grid, and will control the start of the race. The start speed will be 60mph / 97 kph, and no-one is to start until the Pole Sitter has given the evenly spaced and timed "3, 2, 1, Go" countdown to the start, which will aim to be at the start/finish straight. Please ensure safe starts by leaving room between rows!

    Race 2
    Race 2's grid is based on the result from Race 1. Positions 1 to 6 in Race 1 are reversed in Race 2 so that 6th starts on Pole and 1st starts 6th. Positions 7 and 8 remain the same. This race is a stationary start

    There is a mandatory pit stop for Race 1 only which must be taken at some point after the first 2 laps and before the last 2 laps. For example, for a 25 lap race, the pit window would be Laps 3 to 23. Whenever a driver enters or leaves the pits, they must call this out to the rest of the lobby. You must also stay on the tarmac at all times and try not to cut the pit entrance. When exiting the pit lane, you must stay to the side until you have got up to racing speed. Do not feed onto the racing line because this is dangerous

    These can only occur if the following happens:
    - A driver lags out within the first 3 laps
    - Racing collision involving 3 or more cars within the first 3 laps
    - Large lag related crash within the first 3 laps

    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


    Series Participation (7/Cool - 50pts
    Race Participation - 10pts


    - Your unique car number must be placed on all 4 sides and the roof
    - Our web address must appear on the 2 sides, front and rear bumper
    === www.ifcaracing.com must be placed in these 4 locations
    === the size is adjustable but should be easily viewable
    === any additional locations is down to user preference

    You car must display the IFCA GP2Replica number plate with which you should place your number over the top, using Upper Letters 1 and coloured black. Do not alter the size of the group, other than on the Hood (size 0.80) and the Roof (0.70). Your car must display 'ifcaracing.com' using Lower Letters 1 and should be easily visible in your livery design. Both these mandatory graphics must appear on top of your design and in all locations shown below. Seach IFCA GP2 within Vinyl Groups on the Storefront for the number plate and an example 'ifcaracing.com'

    Teams must run the same paintjob, although differences such as displaying gamertags and nationality flags are permitted. If there is more than 1 team from a club for example, then you may run the same design but have different base paints or colours to show the difference


    Courtesy of Turn 10, this is what will be available for this series!

    1st = 1,500,000 Gift Car (excluding DLC)
    2nd = 1,000,000
    3rd = 700,000
    4th = 400,000
    5th = 200,000


    Random car inspections will occur to prevent cheating. If your car does not match the required stats, you are excluded from the series

    Out of 8 rounds, your best 7 results will count towards the championship standings. This means you can miss a round and still be in contention

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

    All drivers can become Pro-Paying drivers until the end of the Sign Up period, at which point the option is closed

    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

    This guide may help you sort your NAT 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 players to room
    b) Driver who can't get in then opens a new room (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 and Support Team. Alternatively, Race Officials are available. Either PM them on the forum or send them a message on XBL. Don't send a friends request - it won't be accepted if we don't know you, or we don't have room. A message will be read though!

    Communication is key! Even with cosmetic damage, chances cannot be taken that will risk other drivers. No-one's race should be ruined by someone else's mistake
