There will be a Pre-Season Qualification process with further details below, and everyone who enters to qualify for the series will be guaranteed a spot in the appropriate split to where you are in the qualifying leaderboards unless signed up as a reserve.
We will be running the total required number of splits depending on sign up with 50 drivers in each split, should there be less drivers sign up we will condense the splits to fill up each server to have clean and competitive racing for everyone, if there is more demand we will happily open up more splits.

The use of custom liveries made outside of the game is permitted in this sprint series but please bear in mind that they are not officially supported by the game developers and their use can induce significant lag for the user.
Races in Split 1 will be live streamed on YouTube and custom liveries can be shared in a dedicated channel on discord for the stream broadcaster to run. Custom Liveries MUST also have the NXTGEN Racing, The Sim Grid & Coach Dave Academy logos on the car.
Any politically charged or potentially offensive material on a custom livery will see that driver banned from the series.
To avoid the significant lag that custom liveries bring, we suggest that drivers run the livery but without the .png file. Do not run the liveries of other teams under any circumstances. The files are shared for use of the broadcaster only.
There will be no custom BOP Used for this series, the in sim bop will be used with all tracks in the series using the 2019 variant.
WITHDRAW & RESERVES
If you are unavailable to attend a round in the championship, then use the withdraw function. This is found by clicking on the `Races` tab, and then `Admin` on the round you need to withdraw from. There you will find the withdraw button. Drivers are permitted 3 withdrawals in this series. Missing a race without withdrawal will result in disqualification.
If a driver has withdrawn from a race, but wish to attend the race after all, please contact a member of the admin team as the slot may have already been filled by a Reserve team.
If you are a reserve driver, you can see if anyone has withdrawn from a round on the same `Admin` tab on each round. If you see a team has withdrawn and you wish to take their place, please contact a member of the admin team.
Reserve drivers are expected to be available at the event time on race day so they can race if other drivers fail to turn up without reporting absence.
