Format & Regulations
All drivers competed in identically-specced Lotus Elise Race Cars.
Tuning was be prohibited via in-game lobby settings.
Any adjustments that were made to a car that did not prevent it from being entered into an in-game race (oil change etc.) were permitted.
Events started with an open practice session from 7:30pm BST.
At 8:00pm, provided all confirmed drivers were connected and ready, they advanced to a five minute qualifying session.
All cars were on track separately for qualifying, starting from the final corner. This session set the grid for the first race each evening.
- Race one was always a 25 minute Feature Race.
- Race two was always a 15 minute Sprint Race, with a grid reversed from the results of race one.
- Race three was always a 10 minute Super-Sprint Race, with a grid reversed from the results of race two.
Points were awarded equally in all races.
Note: Event 2 at the Nurburgring was a single, 60 minute Endurance Race instead of 3 individual races.
Event 2's race also awarded triple points to drivers.

Teams could have a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 drivers. Both cars were not required to be painted in the same colour although it was preferred.
Drivers could change their team choice at any point up until they competed in an official session, at which point they were "locked in" to compete for that team for the rest of the season.
Drivers competing in their first season of Really Rubbish Racing competition could choose to drive for the Really Rubbish Racing New Driver Programme team if they wished to do so instead of creating their own team or joining an existing one.
