Conditions for classification
To be classified a car must complete a minimum 70% distance of their respective leading class car, minimum two (2) drivers must have participated, and all drivers have to meet the maximum driving time.
The goal of the CleanX Challenge to promote not only pure speed, but also safe driving. iRacing keeps track of incidents and each incident is weighted differently. A couple of examples are: light contact (0x), off-track (1x), loss of control (2x) and contact with an other driver (4x).
Prior the CleanX Challenge was a competition on a race by race basis. After each race the car with the least amount of incidents won a prize. This season is the CleanX Challenge a competition throughout the whole season.
All cars will be tracked for exceeding track limits. Cars not respecting track limits for on a consistent basis will be penalised by race control.
In season 4 NEO Endurance will move from TeamSpeak to Discord for the communication between race control and the teams. Discord is a relative new program communication program with voice and text chat functionality.
