In this thread the Stewarding Decisions will be announced, all rulings are final.

Foreword

As Rule D1 states;

'Sportsmanship is a cornerstone of racing at RRLeagues and this is expected to be upheld by all participating drivers. If you pass someone unfairly or collide with them, it is expected that you return the position at the earliest but safest opportunity.'

If you show sportsmanship towards other drivers then any penalties you may receive will be lessened because of this.

Stewards Report
Round 1- Indianapolis Motor Speedway Grand Prix

Head Steward: @Ethan Kearley
Second Steward: @Michał Jura
Third Steward: @Simon Fillingham

Race 1:
Lap 1:

1. Talevski/Amez
At T1 Antonio is on the inside of Marko. Both brake for T1 and turn in at normal places, the width of the track plus Antonio being on Marko's blindside means Marko hits Amez, causing him to spin. Marko then waits safely through T2/T3
Decision- Warning Talevski (1)

2. Mimran/Albertini/Laitinen
In T2 Alexis is on the outside of Szabolcs. Alexis touches Szabolcs with no harm however, as he tries to rejoin the queue Ilkka contacts Alexis as he (Ilkka) is following Szabolcs line through T1 and T2. This causes Alexis to spin, Ilkka keeps driving (doesn't brake) and this helps Alexis back around who resumes his position.
Decision- Racing Incident

3. Hutson/Hartup
Nicolae hugs the inside of T3 as Paul seems to sideswipe him. I can only assume by the move Paul makes that he's looking to overtake the guy in front into T4 and Nicolae gets caught up as the unlucky bystander. Both Paul and Nicolae go off track, this rewards Paul with a slowdown. I mention this as it saves him from causing further contact as he rejoins through T4. Nicolae recovers before Paul.
Decision- Warning Hutson (1)

4. van Eekelen/D. Wyatt/Kearley/Bruce
Marcel kisses Dave's rear bumper causing Marcel to slide/spin and Dave to go wide. Dave recovers before Marcel after the following happens. Kearley is close behind Marcel and helps Marcel round causing him to spin out as he spins onto the racing line. Not Marcel's fault but he didn't hold the brakes?). It's worth pointing out the contact between Marcel and Ethan had no effect on Dave at all. Marcel then comes to a stop and Norman, again unsighted, hits Marcel and continues. Both Kearly and Bruce could not avoid their accidents which was wholy caused by the contect between Marcel and Dave.
Decision- Warning Marcel (1)
Advice- Hold your brakes when you are spinning/ after you've spun to avoid further crashes.

5. Rubio/Ferero
Into T6 Adrian is on the extreme inside of Alejandro for little reason. Adrians braking causes him to be perpendicular to the racing line as Alejandro, who is just following the normal racing line, contacts him. Adrian loses many positions as Alejandro doesn't wait.
Decision- Racing Incident


6. Ferero/Barker
Alejandro brakes too late for T7 and hits Colin, causing him to slide, Colin recovers as Alejandro waits.
Decision- Warning Ferero (1)

7. Kearley/Nieuwoudt
Ethan brakes later than Herman into T7 and goes up the inside, Herman tries to take his usual line but Ethan is already there, causing contact between the two.
Decision- Racing Incident

8. Kearley/Nieuwoudt
Herman tries to recover the position he lost in T7 and tries to recover his position as Ethan goes wide through T8. Contact is made on Ethan's left-rear corner. Herman comes off worse as Ethan is unharmed by the result.
Decision- Racing Incident

Race 2
Lap 1

9. Nieuwoudt/Talevski
Herman wins the Nobel Prize for Braking Errors at T1 and somehow (magic and fairies I expect) misses everyone except Marko. Marko does a full 360as Herman recovers and continues without waiting.
Decision- No Qualification Herman (3)
Note- This penalty is only for the contact that caused an incident as he careens across the track, more care is needed on lap 1 with cold brakes and tyres as the temps DO NOT carry into the 2nd race.

10. Rubio/Amez/D.Wyatt
Adrian brakes early to avoid the crash ahead and Antonio comes up his inside from a mile back, Adrian turns in, not expecting anyone to be there and Adrian spins after making contact with Antonio. Secondary contact is made between Dave and Adrian but this is completely unavoidable. Antonio waits for Adrain to recover.
Decision- Racing Incident

11. M. Wyatt/Mimran/Laitinen
Michael is in the middle of a 3 wide sandwich at apex of T1, but there is ony room for 2 cars. Micharl come off the worst. Price you pay for going 3 wide sometimes. No action IMO.
Decision- Racing incident

12. Sajdak/Hutson/Pereira.
Sajdak and Hutson were fighting for position in T1, Sajdak hit Hutson on the side, Hutson bumped Pereira in the back and spun him.
Decision- Racing Incident

13. Conn/Pereira/Hartup/Talevski
Dino goes up the inside of Nicolae into T4. It's a little bit of a divebomb that causes contact between the two of them. Nicolae slides and recovers the car. Dino also slides causing him to be collected by the close-following Noel. Dino then rolls back to the edge of the track (although this causes no issues) but, he does nearly rejoin into Marko.
Decision- Warning Pereira (1)
Advice- Please hold brakes after an incident

14. Gomez/Laitinen
Through T5 Gomez runs wide causing him to go 2 wheels onto the grass, this spins him back across the track where he collects Ilkka. Ilkka recovers first.
Decision- Racing Incident

15. Neiuwoudt/Rubio
Contact is made as Herman goes up the inside of T11. The hip-check runs Adrian wide and Herman does not return the place.
Decision- Racing Incident

Submitted

16. Race 2- Lap 2- T1- Duran/Mimran
Mimran runs a perfectly normal line through T1. Gerardo takes a line consistnat with a sensible overtaking line. As he gets to the apex, due to his recuded angle and the nature of these cars, Gerardo's car is a little unstable. Alexis makes contact here that causes Gerardo to go onto the curb. This causes Gerardo's car to rotate further causing secondary contact between the pair. This results in Gerardo spinning out and Alexis ends up not waiting.
Decision- Racing Incident

17. Race 2- Lap 3- T3 Duran/ Nieuwoudt
Gerardo is on the inside of T3 and Herman tries to pinch him down onto the curbing, Gerardo's (righfully) unwilling nature to go off-track causes several contacts. Herman tries changing line between T3 and T4 rubbing along Gerardo's rear bumper as he does so. Gerardo ends up going wide through T4. Gerardo, again resists Herman's advances and gives up the place before T5. It's worth noting that the onboard shows no movement from Herman to cause the contact with Gerardo between turns 3 and 5.
Decision- Racing Incident

Round 2- Norisring

Head Steward: @Ethan Kearley
Second Steward: @S.Nordqvist


Race 1
Lap 1

1. Kearley/Rives/Bruce
Ethan is a touch wide into T3and as he comes to take the apex, Chris is there and nips Ethan's rear-left corner and spins. Chris waits. Ethan holds brakes and a slightly unsighted Norman plows into him. Bruce gets aways first. The stewards see the incident between Norman and Ethan as unavoidable.
Decision- WARNING RIVES (1)

2. Amez/Laitinen
Antonio messes up his braking into T4. He moves from the extreme outside to the inside to take the corner and Ilkka is already there. Trading piant and door-to-door contact occurs but neither lose anything because of it.
Decision- RACING INCIDENT

SUBMITTED

3. Lap 20 - Laitinen/Hartup
Ilkka hits Nicolae in the left rear into T1 after being ~50m behind into the braking zone. He brakes far too late for the corner and wold not have made the corner without the contact. This ends with Nicolae spearing into the wall on exit. Ilkka does not give the position back.
Decision- NO QUALIFICATION LAITINEN (3)

Race 2
Lap 1

4. Pereira/Kanoza
Dino hits Swalek into T1 causing Dino to crash to the back of the field. Swalek suffers no ill-effects.
Decision- WARNING PEREIRA (1)

5. Conn/Hartup/Amez/Barker
Into T1 everyone is checking up to avoid Dino's incident. Hartup moves from outside to inside, not realising Noel was there Noel hits Nicolae causing him to slide out of the turn. Nicolae recovers well and stays ahead. This causes both cars to be slow out of T1. Therefore Antonio tries to go left but Colin has snuck through and Antonio straightens out and hits the brakes a touch as to avoid contact. The track tightens here and Nicolae forces Noel left so he (Nicolae) doesn't hit the wall, this pushes Noel onto Amez's nose, spinning Noel around. Amez was completely powerless to avoid the incident as Barker is still to his left. Amez waits for Noel to recover by throwing out the anchors as a 3-wide battle is coming up behind. No further contact is made. It's worth noting that there is no way Nicolae could have known about Antonio being there and he had to follow the road due to the wall that is there. Therefore Nicola is excused in this instnace.
Decision- WARNING CONN and AMEZ (1)
Note- Antonio, your warning here is for the usafe waiting, not the incident with Noel.

6. Kearley/Bruce
This incident is nearly a carbon-copy of Incident 1. Except this time it's Norman who spins Ethan and everyone behind gets through safely. Also it's worth noting in this instance Ethan is following Laitinen's line through the chicane so there can be no questions as to his intent through T3. Norman waits for Ethan.
Decision- WARNING BRUCE (1)

Submitted

7. Lap 2- T1- Kearley/Rives
Chris was spinning in the middle of the track on the entry to T1 while trying to recover form an incident.

Round 3- Silverstone Historic

Note: Sorry about the delay, real life had to take priority a bit and I had tech issues... basically everything that could have gone wrong did.

Head Steward: @Ethan Kearley
Second Steward: @Simon Fillingham

Race 1
Lap 1

1.1 CONN / HARTUP / BRUCE
Noel cuts the track on the entry to Maggots and picks up a slow down penalty resulting in his car ghosting. This confuses Nicolae who ends up spinning into the track and is collected by Norman. No driver at fault here.
DECISION - NO ACTION

1.2 STENEKER / SAJDAK
Henk loses traction through Maggots and procedes to slide into the track where he is collected by Tomasz. Blame can't be placed on Henk here (even though it was poor driving)
DECISION - NO ACTION

1.3 ARTISIAN / WYATT
Christian launches an attack from a fair distance away going into The Loop. As he tries to avoid Mike he hits the sausage curb and ricochetts into Mike. This hits Mike around. Christian waits for Mike but in doing so disturbs several races.
DECISION- WARNING ARTISIAN

1.4
HAAS / PEREIRA
Dino tags the rear of Max through Aintree,resulting in Max spinning off and losing positions. Dino doesn't wait or return position within a lap.
DECISION - NO QUALIFICATION PENALTY PEREIRA (3)

SUBMITTED

1.5 HAAS / WYATT
Mike comes back onto the track after going wide as the cars enter Becketts. He rejoins the line right in front of Max and then imediately brakes hard for the corner causing them to both go around.
DECISION- NO QUALIFICATION WYATT


Race 2
Lap 1

2.1 TALEVSKI / ALBERTINI / PEREIRA / HARTUP / BRUCE / RUBIO
Marko hits the back of Szabolcs on the entry to Brooklands causing Szabolcs to tap Dino and spin him off. Marko also spins onto the racing line and holds his brakes until safe for him to do so. However, while Marko is still parked up (as is proceedure) Nicolae and Norman come around the corner and trip up over Marko. No blame is placed on anyone for the secondary contact. Dino recovers before Marko but rejoins into the side of Adrian who, thankfully, is mostly unaffected by the incident.
DECISION- WARNING TALEVSKI & 2X WARNING PEREIRA

Submitted
2.2 HARTUP / BRUCE
Norman goes for the overtake into The Loop. Nicolae shuts the door on Bruce and contact is made. NIcolae gets a more flowing run so keeps the position on the outside. Norman then performs a pit maneuver on Nicolae and doesn't wait.
DECISION- NO QUALIFICATION BRUCE / WARNING HARTUP
Advice- Either @Norman Bruce, you were trying to hit Nicolae or just trying to get back onto the racing line. Assuming it's the former we really, really recommend CrewChief as he will tell you about cars you can't see. If it's the deliberate contect then that's just something else.

Round 4- Suzuka West Course
Head Steward: @Ethan Kearley
Second Steward: @J. Forsberg

Pre Race Briefing
Vicente Garcia & Norman Bruce signed up but no-show in PRB or Races
Decision- 1 point each on licence

Race 1
Lap 1

1.1 PERIERA/PAPAI
Raimund is going into 130R and takes the normal racing line, Dino on the inside collects Raimund at the apex spinnning them both out and causing a bit of a mess. Dino did not have a significant portion of his car alongside. Dino initially holds his brake but then releases them to try and recover. This causes him to hit Nicolae who ricochets into the recovering Raimund and into Paul. Dino recovers in last place.
Decision: Warning for contact and then 2x Warning for rejoin equaling a NO QUALIFICATION PERIERA (3)

1.2 KEARLEY/WYATT(D)
Ethan has a moment through 130R and tags Dave. Dave recovers first with help from Mike. No real fault on Ethan here, just be more cautious into T1 on lap 1.
Decision: WARNING KEARLEY (1)

1.3 PEREIRA
Dino enters the pit at end of the first lap, presumably to take his Drive-Through from last round and disconnects. He reported in Discord this was a technical issue and made the grid for Race 2.
Decision- The stewards believe this was a genuine issue and have ruled that Dino suffered the effects of a Drive-Through. NO ACTION

Race 2
Lap 1

2.1 PEREIRA/RIVES
Chris is minding his own business into Turn 2. Dino is trying to overtake [insert] and in doing so collects Chris at the apex of Turn 2. Chris recovers first.

Pre-Race Briefing

The following driver(s) were absent from the Pre-Race Briefing at 1945 GMT and will receive 1 penalty point on their licence:

All present :)

Race 1 Lap 1

1.1 WYATT (D) / ROSSI / CONN
On the approach to T1 there is side by side contact between Dave & Valentino which leads to Valentino being pushed slightly off line, getting a wheel on the grass and pushing Dave wide through T1. Dave collects Noel as a result and both Noel & Valentino end up in the gravel, Dave is able to continue. The side by side contact is what the caused the incident here and the stewards find it very difficult to place any blame on either driver for what was a very small deviation from their line by both drivers, however it did have consequence to Noel and there is no doubt that both Dave and Valentino played their part in this.
DECISION - WARNING D.WYATT (1)
DECISION - WARNING ROSSI (1)

1.2 BARKER / WYATT (M)
On the run down to T2 there is side by side contact between the 2 drivers. Colin is the ahead driver and moves to the centre of the track, still leaving room for Mike who doesnt seem to alter his line and drifts into the rear half of Colins car. There was no big incident here, the rub from Mike pulled Colin on to the verge but there was no real consequence to either driver. Just be hyper aware of your surroundings especially during the opening corners.
DECISION - NO ACTION

Submitted

1.3 ALBERTINI / HAAS
L6, T11. Max hits the rear of Szabolcs though T11 resulting in Szabolcs spinning and losing 3 positions. Max fails to wait or return position within 1 lap.
DECISION - NO QUALIFYING PENALTY HAAS (3)

1.4 HAAS / BARKER
L8,T1. The 2 drivers are side by side on the run down to T1, Colin on the inside. Down the straight Colin bangs doors with Max which we feel was nothing more than clumsy from Colin. Under braking, Max makes turns in before Colin hitting Colin which drags him into Max and they both run wide in to the gravel trap. For this incident we must consult Rule D13 which states, 'If there was sufficient overlap at the corner turn-in point, then the behind driver has the right to the inside line through the corner. The ahead driver can still challenge for the position but must do so from a wider position, leaving room for the behind driver.' The stewards take from this that Max did not leave room for the behind driver and was repsonsible for the contact and the incident. Colin was able to recover before Max.
DECISION - WARNING HAAS (1)

Race 2 Lap 1

2.1 ROSSI / RIVES
On the run down to T2 there is side by side contact between the 2 drivers. Chris is the ahead driver and moves across the track, not leaving room for Valentino who is suficiently on his line. The 2 cars rub which leads to Chris spinning in to the barrier and Valentino veering on to the verge briefly before being able to continue, although losing a few positions.
DECISION - WARNING RIVES (1)

2.2 PAPAI / HAAS
Raimund clips the rear of Max in to T3 causing Max to have a momentary slide which he is able to catch after bouncing of Szabolcs. A little more caution to avoid opening lap contact required.
DECISION - WARNING PAPAI (1)

Submitted

2.3 HARTUP / WYATT (M) / (CONN)
L3, T1. Mike hits the rear of Nicolae under braking for T1, pushing Nicolae wide and off the track. Sportingly, Mike slows and waits for Nicolae. Regretfully, this was on the racing line and causes consequence to Noel behind.
DECISION - WARNING M.WYATT (1) - for the contact
DECISION - NO QUALIFICATION PENALTY M.WYATT (3) - for the unsafe slow down causing consequence to another driver

Race 2
Lap 1

2.1- ALBERTINI / PAPAI / HAAS / WYATT
Max, Raimund and Szabolcs end up 3-wide into turn 2 as Raimund rolls off the brakes to go between the others. Max haas (hehe) already started to turn in and Raimund hits him on the rear right corner. Max recovers and Raimund does not give the place up.
