2022 ChampCar iRacing Series: Broadcast Information and Protest Forms


Recommended Posts

Hope everyone is looking forward to the first CCiS championship round tomorrow. Wanted to take the opportunity to link the updated versions of the information and protest forms that we introduced last season.


Broadcast Information:


Our partners at HJBC do a fantastic job at the live broadcasts of the championship rounds, covering battles and drivers throughout the field. To help them out further, please consider providing additional information about yourself and your racing adventures. This will help engage viewers and give a rounded perspective of the field of drivers in the CCiS. Additionally, if you have a preferred permanent number to use in the series, please let me know via this form and I will set it in the league parameters - this will aid consistency from round to round.






Whilst the CCiS community takes pride in clean and respectful racing, it is an unfortunate inevitability that disagreements will arise on track from time-to-time. The purpose of this form is to formalise any protest that a competitor wishes to escalate to myself as series administrator, and to provide accountability for their resolution. Replay evidence should be provided with every protest (either video uploaded or a link to an uploaded replay file that I can download and view). Any protests resulting from a CCiS race must be submitted before the next CCiS round takes place to ensure timely resolution.

Adding a bit more clarification to this thread as I will be updating the header with the new forms each year.


The CCiS is largely expected to be a self-policing community. We do not have a squadron of race officials monitoring all activity on the track or in chat, and the expectation is on all of us to conduct ourselves accordingly on track and when communicating with each other. For instances where somebody falls short of these community standards then the protest form can be used to raise up an incident for more formal review by myself.


You do not have to be directly involved in the incident in order to report it.


That said, if the impact of the incident to which you were a witness was minimal, or if those who were involved have closed the matter themselves, it probably doesn't warrant further review. In cases where there are still lingering questions or residual resentment then please feel free to raise them up in a formalised manner.


Further to that, resolution of any protests is also highly subjective. This form of racing (amateur and virtual) does, by nature, attract a field of vastly different skill and experience, and therefore every incident is worthy of independent and thoughtful review. Likewise, any punishments will likely be decided upon with multiple inputs around the incident and so could range from a simple one-off warning to removal from the series, and any and all options in between. Over time there will be consistency, but I want to avoid having a detailed framework of "x type of incident will always lead to y type of penalty". 


To paraphrase Potter Stewart; "I shall not attempt further to define these kinds of incidents, and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it".
