A rearranging in the schedule has moved [IMSA] Barber Motorsports Park to week number three, and pushed the Nürburgring back one week. Maybe not the worst to be on a smaller track, given the holiday!

What makes Band of Others League unique is our ongoing commitment to provide scoring options that allow Drivers of all pace to score well.

All bonuses (and penalties) are geared toward rewarding people for clean driving and participation.

Scoring is % based on number of laps completed. All Drivers must complete 80% of the Leaders laps to achieve maximum points.

Main Race Scoring: Race winner is scored 50 points + 1 bonus point, all positions following are scored -1 point from the previous position.

  • + 1 point for Race winner.
  • + 3 points for Race finish.
  • + 5 points for Race finish with 0 incident points.
  • - 3 points for every 10 incidents.
  • Car contact resulting in loss of control (drive through penalty).
NOTE: All drive through penalties MUST be served within 3 laps of offence.

Drop Weeks:
  • 1 drop week will be included after 6 rounds are completed.
  • 2 drop weeks will be included if 10 or more rounds are completed.

PLATINUM Championship

  • +1 Started on Pole
  • +1 Led One or More Laps
  • +1 Led Most Laps

BRONZE Championship

Open Setups:

If you have a good setup please post it here.

If you are unwilling or unable to share your setup with other League Drivers then you are not permitted to use it during League events.

Car Selection:

All Drivers have until Week 4 to test different cars and still be scored in League.

Starting Week 5 you must commit to one car for the remainder of the Season else you will not score points.

After Week 5, you are allowed to change your car at any time in the season, but you will forfeit any points scored in a race not completed in your Week 5 car.

Track Selection:
The B2O Sprint Series league tries to follow the iRacing Official schedule to make preparing for each week as easy and accessible as possible. GTE cars are utilized in two different series, which allows us a little leeway in track selection each week!

After each race, participants will be a polled to select the track for the following week. (ie. Our track selection for 2019 Season 1 Week 1 is between [IMSA] Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari - Grand Prix and [iRLMS] Autodromo Nazionale Monza - Grand Prix

See you on the track!

Don't forget about Practice Pals every Monday and Wednesday 8:00p EST (Tuesday and Thursday 1:00a GMT)!

Actually, it turns out iRacing is awesome, and is doing exactly this! The Sunset practice sessions are awesome! Hope to see you all Wednesday!
The iELMS race this weekend was awesome with D/N at Sebring. Started nice and bright, and the last 2 hours were completely dark. Having Night Mode at Sebring does make it a little nicer in the transition period and when driving at night, but its totally different at the start compared to at the end. Just makes me excited for Daytona in a few weeks!

I'll likely be driving the Ferrari from this point forward because I don't really like either the Porsche or the Ford.

Actually I'm not a fan of the Ferrari either but until iRacing gets an M8...
@Arjuna Kankipati Here is the replay of the incident that you wanted to look at. On my replay your brake lights look weird. In the middle of your braking zone they start flickering as if ABS was engaging, which these cars don't have. When I saw it before I assumed it was somebody who had braking assistance turned on, but I assume you don't? :p

Edit: Replay file of 3.8 MB is too large for the site. @Kenadian do you know how or where I can upload it?
