MRc FBM Saturday
|League type||Weekly single event series|
Single seater league
|Organizers||Master Race car|
MRc FBM Saturday is a weekly single event series, using the Formula BMW (FBM). The league is run by Master Race car (MRc). Its inaugural season was held in 2019. MRc FBM Saturday is held on Saturday evenings. Although it's a seasonal league with its own standings, it's a free and ready-to-race type league: no need of signing up and committing to a whole scheduled season.
Format and Rules
The event is held in the evenings (Europe) of every Saturday. The server is password protected before the qualifiying starts, so come early enough to join the server. You can find the server password on the event's league page.
As its name suggests, the Formula BMW (FBM) is used for every race. The upcoming track is picked by one of the most active drivers in the league. After the pick, the track is set on server and is available for practice for a week (until the next race on Saturday).
There are no starting numbers, no skin requirements or any special in-game name requirements.
There is a one-shot qualification before the race: players get called out on track in chat on the server. The connection list (N) dictates the qualifying driver order. A called out driver (the one who receives a "GO" from race director in chat) is allowed to run the outlap and a single timed hotlap. After crossing the start/finish line, the driver must spectate (Shift+S). Only called out players are allowed on-track. The qualification ends and track opens when the last driver completes their timed lap and the organizer says so. Only those are allowed to participate in the race, who have set a valid time during the qualification and are in the Top 40 (as 40 is the max grid spot number). There's usually a 5-minute break between quali and the race. If you did not make the Top 40 in quali but are still on the server, under no circumstance are you allowed to be on track before session restart (race start). Once the lights are off, if any driver retired due to any reason (for example crashed), you are allowed to join the track and go after the pack (watch out for blue flags, though).
Races are usually 40 minutes long, in given lap count. A single mandatory pitstop is required (no work needed). Like in every race, the document of Rules of Clean Racing should be followed.
