Welcome to NZrFL50! For this league we will be using the newly updated version of the Flat6 mod by EnduRacers. The first round kicks off on February 12th in the Motherland with Monza. After that we head stateside for 5 more rounds of racing.
The cars are extremely fun to drive and have somewhat limited setup options, which should make the racing evening among all participants
Riven has very kindly put a server up already, with the mod and Monza which is Round 1. Schedule

We will also be utilising a weight system throughout the league based on finishing order of each race.
The amount that is added\taken off will dynamically adjust dependant on the size of the field.
For every place above the midpoint of the field 10kg will be added
For every place below the midpoint of the field 5kg will be taken awayExample:Race 1
Midpoint is 7.5
1st = +70kg
7th = +10kg
10th = -15kg
12th = -25kg
14th = -35kgRace 2
Midpoint is 9th
1st = +80kg
2nd = +70kg
9th = No change
11th = -10kg
17th = -40kgSign Ups
We will be utilizing the RF2 analyser tool that was used in the Australasian GT3 series last year. This does not require manual sing-ups by drivers.
