    X1.NET 2.jpg

    What is the Rivals World Championship?

    The Rivals World Championship is a season long series of time-trial events done through the in-game Rivals mode. The aim is to provide friendly competition by challenging your driving skills against your rivals in A class cars on some of the world's best circuits.

    Who knows maybe by the end your skills may have improved significantly.

    Bonus rounds are accessed through the freeplay mode currently.

    Rules and Regulations

    A) Championship rounds will be run in A Class cars (Cars are permitted to be upgraded from the lower classes)
    A class cars run at at PI(Performance Index) of between 601 and 700. Competitors are free to modify,tune and setup their car
    freely as long as in it meets the class A PI.

    B) Each competitor will be required to declare a car to use for the duration of the championship. Declaration of a championship car
    can be done when submitting a time for the first time. Once a time is submitted for the first time it is not retractable.
    Should a time be first submitted after round 2 and before round 7 then the competitor will be offered the chance to use the one car change rule along with receiving the appropriate penalty. (see C) Therefore a change of car is only permissable between rounds 2+3, 4+5, 6+7.

    C) A change of car is permitted once during the championship. This does however carry stipulations and penalties.
    A car cannot be changed until after round 2 and cannot be changed after round 8. A change of car cannot be taken between grouped rounds eg between round 3+4.
    Changing a car will result in a 25 point penalty. Once a change of car is made then no more changes are available.

    Should a competitor not have enough points to be deducted when changing car, then the competitor must wait until they have enough points to accommodate for the change.

    D) Championship will run for 12 weeks from Monday 20th January - Sunday April 20th

    E) There will be a 2 week break from Monday 24th February - Sunday 9th March.

    F) Ten rounds will be run over 10 tracks for the duration the championship (See championship calendar below) with 3 bonus drag time rounds.

    G) Two rounds will be run over a two week period and must be run in the same car. Times may be submitted before the event start time but no more than 10-20 minutes. Times on or after the midnight PDT finish time will not be accepted. No exceptions.

    H) Bonus drag rounds must be in the same car as the main championship rounds (Class A)

    I) Each participant must submit a clean lap to be eligible for points. This includes all assist rules (see M) and have no
    exclamation mark beside the time.

    J) All lap times must be submitted after the round start date and before the end date. Times for rounds in advance will not be permitted
    except in the extreme circumstance of a competitor not being available due to holidays/personal reasons.
    In this circumstance a time may be submitted to a steward to be then posted during the round time frame. The competitor may submit a screenshot/link to video for the time/s
    to a steward before the time is due. Holidays,illness' and internet outtages happen, so we understand.

    L) Lap times may be removed from the board should the steward review the lap and find a breaking of the rules. In this case either a steward or the timekeeper will contact the competitor by personal message through the forum or through the game
    explaining the reasons for the lap's disqualification.
    If the competitor wishes to appeal then they are free to appeal to the stewards whose decision is then final.

    M) Conditions for eligible laps:

    1. b) Times may be submitted using game dvr and then shared to the correct round's thread, (See sharing your lap times below).

    Times may be submitted through either a screenshot of the leaderboard. This will show the car, class and time, date and assists.

    Please try to submit times first by game dvr and failing that screenshots.

    2. Times must be submitted only in the correct time frame.(see G)

    3. Assists:

    a) Brake line only - on/off
    b) ABS - on/off
    c) Steering simulation/normal
    d) Traction & stability control - off
    e) Shifting - Automatic/manual/manual with clutch
    f) Damage, Fuel & Tyre Wear - Simulation
    h) Times must be attained using the rivals mode of the game (except bonus rounds which can be obtained through freeplay)
    i) Laps must not have an exclamation mark next to the time.

    4. Rivals mode ghosts can be turned off to avoid distraction.

    N) Should two or more competitors finsh the championship on equal points then the number of round wins will determine the winner. (Bonus round do not count)
    Should two or more competitors still be equal then the number of top 3 finishes will separate them.
    Should two or more competitors still be equal then they shall be placed in one final challenge to determine a winner. Track will be Alps Festival full. The remaining competitors then have 1 week
    to submit the times and a winner shall be determined.

    O) Non submission of a time will result in no points for that round.

    P) All lap times must be submitted to the corresponding rounds thread for collection by the timekeeper. Times posted in the wrong thread are not permissable and shall not be moved by the administrator. These lap submissions will be
    marked and deleted. Please note that the same lap may still be valid as long as it is submitted in the correct forum thread.

    Q) Stewards decisions are final.

    R) Should any competitor receive bullying or harassment of any form another competitor, then the Timekeeper, Administrator or Stewards reserve the right to disqualify
    the offending party from the competition. This is the only rule which extends outside of the stewards. Friendly banter is welcome and valued but Keep it friendly folks.

    S) Competitors are required to have the forum logo/name on their. A full livery is not required but visibility is.

    T) Competitors may come and go from the championship at will, however all above rules must still be adhered to.

    Q) The following cars are banned from competing:
    Catherham Superlight
    KTM Xbow
    Lotus 2 eleven

    These cars are banned due to them being lightweight track ready cars that need little work to perform at the peak of the class. Encouragement of car and tuning exploration is preferred so as to sway against the competition turning into a same car class.

    Sharing your laps (Also see M)

    For video submissions record through in game dvr using ''xbox record that'' and follow the video below or game dvr if you wish.

    For screenshot submission see the example below:
