Atlantic Motorsport Endurance Team

Atlantic Motorsport’s endurance team is available for all Atlantic Motorsport Ambassadors; experienced/inexperienced and fast/slow. Multiple teams will be created with a number of criteria already pre-determined for driver selection. However, driver lineups may set according to the following terms:

  • 6-8 Hour Races: teams will be limited to 3-4 drivers each. More than that number may participate in testing and have an active role in setup generation, but the selection of the active drivers will be based on practice performance, readiness, and activity. This selection will be made 1-2 weeks prior to the race, depending on team readiness and availability.
  • 12-24 Hour Races: teams will be extended to 5-6 drivers each, depending on league rules. If teams are in short supply, the
    manager may reach out to the rest of Atlantic Motorsport for additional help. If no further help is available, teams may be combined, leading to a selection criteria similar to the policy in the 6-8 Hour events.

In special circumstances, the policies above may be waived depending on league policy or standard. In certain situations, the team may open up driver selection to build experience and confidence. Each individual team will have a manager, who will be nominated by the endurance team manager. These drivers will be responsible with assisting in the team’s lineup, strategy, and finalizing the setup used on raceday. The managers do not have to race in a particular event if they deem their teammates more fit to drive, but they will still ensure their team’s readiness.

MEMBERSHIP
All the entire Endurance Team will be Sponsored as it will be the TOP and Most difficult team to run. All drivers will be invited from Atlantic Motorsport Ambassadors; experienced/inexperienced and fast/slow. Multiple teams will be created with a number of criteria already pre-determined for driver selection.

Drivers Agreement

Rules and Expectations

The Core Basics

Respect
All drivers are expected to treat everyone with respect. This extends to not only team managers, fellow Atlantic drivers, and league admins, but also to other drivers on and off track.

Professionalism
Race everyone around you with professionalism and dignity. Part of being a professional is acting like one at all times, even when times get tough.

Heart
Every Atlantic driver must have passion for this hobby and enjoy racing in a fun and professional environment.

ON Track Behavior

Cheating
While a rare occurrence, there have been cheaters caught everywhere, including former Atlantic Motorsport drivers. Results files are analyzed after each race to determine if any cheating program/algorithm has been used and eyewitness accounts are also taken into consideration.

This is a no tolerance rule in Atlantic Motorsport. Any driver caught cheating will be immediately removed from the team.

On Track Conduct

  • Track Limits
    The limits of the track are dependent on the racing line. Two wheels on track as defined by the racing line is required in almost everywhere. Curbing, grass, and run-off are not considered part of the track/racing line and will be considered as “cutting” the track.
  • Punting
    A punt is considered a “nose-to-tail” contact by the trailing car that effectively spins and/or wrecks the leading car. Action by the stewards is typically absent depending on the severity of the incident. Most punting occurrences are deemed “racing accidents” and drivers involved are encouraged to handle it privately.
  • Intentional Wrecking
    This action is self-explanatory and results in the same consequence as cheating.
  • Verbal Abuse
    Verbal abuse includes swearing and demeaning towards any driver during a sanctioned on-track activity (qualification and race).
  • Right to Line
    In any competitive passing situation, the right to line is owned by the leading car so long as that driver does not commit any blocking moves (more than one move is not allowed). Once the trailing car has passed the centerline of the leading car, that driver must allow adequate racing room to ensure a fair fight for the position. Any incident resulting from a pass is deemed a “racing incident”.

Some racing places does not have a “blue flags” rule. When a lead lapped car comes up on a lapped car, it is once again up to the trailing car to make the appropriate pass. The lapped car does not have to move over for the leader, but should be as forgiving and predictable as possible to ensure no incident occurs between the two cars.

Off Track Conduct

  • Entry List and Attendance
    In order to participate in any event, every driver must sign up to the entry list.

All Atlantic Motorsport drivers are expected to attend and be prepared for each race they are signed up for. It is understandable that personal life may present issues from time to time, but excessive laziness and forgetting about the event will be not acceptable.

  • Post Race Forum Etiquette
    All drivers are encouraged to participate in post-race discussion, but must be civil and courteous at all times. Hostility towards another driver after the race is severely looked down upon by many administrations and will be handled promptly. Drivers are typically disqualified, suspended, or expelled from that organization depending on severity.

Disciplinary Actions

          Warning
Drivers who commit the following actions are liable to receive warnings from Atlantic Motorsport management:

  • Abusing track limits
  • Excessive punting – first time offense
  • Verbal abuse (on and off track) – first time offense
  • Counter-course driving – first time offense
  • Poor attendance

Management reserves the right to impose warnings on drivers for other actions not listed above.

          Suspension
Drivers who commit multiple offenses for the infractions above are liable to receive a suspension from Atlantic Motorsport management.

The length and severity of suspensions are determined solely by management. Harsher infractions will receive harsher suspensions.

During the period of suspension, drivers may race as many times as they would like, but they must remain team-less. As soon as a driver joins another team, they revoke all privileges as an Atlantic Motorsport driver.

Atlantic Motorsport drivers are responsible for observing suspended drivers and access their improvement for reinstatement.

After the suspension is over, a driver may join the team at the discretion of the management. Driver must join immediately or risk losing privilege for reinstatement.

Suspensions are not available for appeal by the guilty party. All decisions by management are final.

          Expulsion

Drivers who commit the following infractions will be expelled from Atlantic Motorsport:

  • Intentional Wrecking
  • Cheating
  • Fraud
  • Another infraction after suspension

All expulsions are final and no appeals will be allowed by the guilty party.

Procedures

Internal Structure

Atlantic Motorsport has a hierarchal system that allows drivers to move up and down the team according to performance, determination, and tenure. Some drivers may be eligible for sponsorships.

PROMOTION
Drivers starting out in Atlantic Motorsport Academy have the opportunity to be promoted to a higher level in the team.
Academy drivers who exhibit an increase in performance and consistency over a period of time in the team can expect to be promoted to Atlantic Motorsport main team. After that Drivers on the main team and whom the board see that they can represent our Team will be promoted to Ambassadors and after that to the Endurance Team. Promotion to the Endurance Team will happen when a driver shows a consistent ability to win races and/or finish in the top positions on a normal basis. Every promotion will be initiated by the senior team manager with permission from both team managers before finalization.

DEMOTION
On rare occasions, drivers may face demotion from a team if they don’t meet the expectations of that particular team. This includes degraded performance, increase in DNFs, bringing bad image to our team and Sponsors and inactivity.

RESERVE LIST
Drivers who are inactive for a long period of time (more than two months), may be moved to Atlantic Motorsport’s reserve list.
Those who are on this list are still considered Atlantic drivers, but are not actively driving for the team. When ready to race again, any driver on this list may request their respective team manager for re-entry onto the team. These drivers have priority to join the team and will bump out any other inactive driver currently listed on that particular team.
If a driver on this reserve list are racing on any place or team outside Atlantic, he will be remove from the team immediately.

SPONSORSHIP
The expectations of sponsored drivers are higher than other drivers and due to this, they should expect to race as much as possible and push for wins and solid finishes. Inactivity, poor performance, or disciplinary issues may have their sponsorship revoked immediately.
