      Welcome to the IRL F3 League Steward’s Office:

      The Steward’s Office is to be used to resolve incidents that have occurred on track in the IRL F3 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.

       

      There will be a mandatory “cool off period” before being able to post a request to the Steward’s Office. The Steward’s Office WILL NOT open until 9am the day after the race and will close again 9am the following day. Any requests to the Stewards outside this window WILL NOT be considered.

      If drivers accumulate a number of penalties over a few races, penalties will be applied in the order they were awarded.

      Drivers involved (PSN ID): Synchro
      Brief description of incident: I was behind Synchro for half of lap one, I thought his driving was reckless.

      1st.  pushes a driver off track who was significantly alongside

      2nd, drifts across my line in the braking zone, luckily I was coasting up to the corner. Otherwise I would have been forced off track

      3rd, barges someone off track

      Describe how the incident affected your race: Didn’t really, I just had to be extra cautious, I think it was Steel who was knocked off track.

      Corner cut: After overtake i was going inside because of possible contact (give him space) and i didn’t get any worning from game. After the curve we want to a small direction where i lost control of the car because of too much gas, u can see on Luke POV he have space on right side of the track and he was able to use it…

       

      My POV: videoo link   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIUhUdn2N5E

      Drivers involved (PSN ID): Craig8728 & Steelbl66
      Brief description of incident: I was holding my line which you can see when comparing myself to the racing line going up the Kemmel straight with Steelbl66 close behind. I leave enough room to the right hand side which he takes. There is contact between us both which knocks him to the right. Although he gains the position you can see he cuts Turn 7 and runs wide. Although he does keep it in track limits he moves to the right slightly and blocks me off. 

      Describe how the incident affected your race: I believe I would’ve had the pace to go round the outside and retake the position into Turn 9. I feel that after the overtake Steelbl66 cut the track at Turn 7 and blocks me at Turn 8 and cost me at Podium. We both had a 3 second penalty so that was for position.

      My POV

      Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9282ZKwNOk

      as you can see i didnt get any warning and i can’t see what is going on behind me, and Craig mate you cannot begin to turn in this situation before me. I see here  you hit me.

      My POV last curve, i got here warning because didn’t have enough space to turn…this situation u can see on live stream.

      Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sCIBWopuDw

      and i have two more situations.First, involved Steel, MrP and Jafrey.

      Describe how the incident affected your race: Droped from 3rd to last place after pit stop.

      Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7_T6RtufYA

      and second, this one is warning for all of us. Involved Tinusss, MrP and Steel

      Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx2NDtk5WeY

      Again lost wing and another pit stop..

      As you can see this was a heroic race for me   :-D.

      Drivers involved (PSN ID): Craig8728 & lukebailey14
      Brief description of incident: I’m reporting myself for this incident and it was completely unfair on luke and I accept full responsibility. I had DRS in the last lap of the race and tried to get closer to luke. I underestimated my breaking and clipped the rear of his car causing us both to spin, but sending luke into the wall. 

      Describe how the incident affected your race: Although I spun, it resulted in luke making contact with the wall.
