Description: A-Class Hatchbacks take on the some of the most famous circuits worldwide. Drivers and Teams will compete in fierce competition to bring home their respective cups. Cars are loosely based on the world renowned WTCC, BTCC, and other events from around the world.

General Information

Welcome to a new and exciting year of Touring Car racing at its finest..

Each series will consist of 4 Races which have been predetermined based on time and access to pits. Races are targeted to be around a half hour long. We will see various track types (Short, Long, Grand Prix, School, Club, etc.) from all over the world!

Drivers will be faced with the ability to tune their cars and race as either a privateer or a team member.

Race nights will be held at 9PM EST on Monday Nights. Specific dates a long with track information will be provided a week before the beginning of the series.


- There will be a rolling start on the first lap of the race. The pole sitter for each event will serve as the pace car.

- We will follow the standard IFCA rules and regulations.

- Please read the IFCA Code of Conduct as well

- Each car must make 2 mandatory pit stops after the first flying lap and before the last lap.

- At the end of the pace lap please do not take off until the pole sitter signals the start of the race. Please do not jump the gun. Drivers must wait until the lead car says "3-2-1 Go!" or something to that effect. When the green flag drops,drivers must retain thier starting positions until reaching the start finish line.

- Restarts will only occur if there is a incident involving 2 or more cars on the first lap. There will be a maximum of 3 restarts per race. After the 3rd restart everyone will be on their own, if any additional problems happen on the pace lap they will be reviewed by IFCA Staff.

- If you crash on your own or get out of line and lose a position there will be no restarts. Use common sense.

- Please no tire scrubbing/tire warming techniques they are unnecessary

Specific to Teams

- You and your team mate must both agree on a team name before qualifying
- If your teammate does not make it to the race on time, you may still qualify for Driver Cup points
- If you or your team mate miss 2 races in a series your team will be disbanded and you will scored as a privateer
- You may not block for your team mates.
- Teams are encouraged to work out pit strategy, car tunes, and strategy outside of the race lobby but are allowed to communicate during the race.

Car Tunes/Builds

- Car Builds can be found on corwinKB's storefront (builds are subject to change); If you would like a tunable file please let AAR GTDon, AAR ABEnstein, or AAR Darkestdale know ahead of time so we can gift an open tune to you.

- Car builds may not be altered

- Car tuning is allowed


- Drivers can enter as Privateers or can compete in the Team Cup by pairing up with 1 other driver.

- Drivers running in a team must drive the same car.

- If you cannot get into the lobby before the start of the race you will be left behind. If there is a significant amount of people who cannot get into the lobby a decision will be made whether or not we continue or try again next week.

- If you cannot get into the lobby it is your responsibility to let us know that you are having an issue.

- We ask that everyone checks their networks and connections prior to joining the lobby to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to get in.

- If you lag out of a lobby that is already in session you will lose all driver/team points earned for the session unless you have completed 40% of the race.

- Please be on time.


- There are no mandatory liveries
- There are no required stickers/url addresses
- No offensive decals are allowed. (No Nudity, No Vulgar language, no promotion of adult websites/pornography, etc.)

*If any livery rules are disobeyed you will be asked to leave the lobby and change your livery. You will not be docked your starting position or points.

Season Scoring

- Driver Cup Points will be determined by overall driver position at the end of the race using the Standard IFCA point scale.

- Team Cup points are added up by a combination of Driver Cup Points racing together for the same team. (Team Ford Team Ford = X Team Ford Points)

Qualifying Procedure

- On the night of the first race in every series we will 3 a lap qualifying session. The lobby will be set to collisions always off, compared best lap times, and there will be a 5 second delay between each car on the track. After the race the lobby will be set to "Lobby Points" and this will give everyone the correct starting order.

- Non-qualifying racers will be lined up in order according to IFCA Rating and GP points.

Hello everyone! I'd like to remind every driver to read over the rules once again before season 2. (Remember, by signing up, you have agreed to the rules listed above.)

Also, I noticed some rules violations in past races. I'm going to emphasize this: No passing anyone until after you cross the start/finish line. Also, the pit window opens after the first flying lap (on lap 3), not the first lap. Thanks and good luck.
