      Welcome to the IRL F1 League Steward’s Office:

      The Steward’s Office is to be used to resolve incidents that have occurred on track in the IRL F1 League races between yourself and other driver(s). Incidents, issues and concerns are to be raised and posted in a mature and respectful manner. Time penalties and wrongful illegal overtake penalties will be resolved by your League Admin(s), who you should approach through private message.

      Derogatory posts which involve “finger-pointing” or those which are intended to instigate an argument will be removed and WILL NOT be considered. Stewards will examine all evidence provided and available to them in relation to each incident and will post their findings.
