Here are the general rules for the High Octane Racing League

Preparation

1. Drivers are required to show up Ready to Race. There is sufficient time to
   ensure your wheel, Teamspeak, tracks, are downloaded and installed and
   are ready to use prior to race start times. The race schedule is posted in
   the forums and any new/unreleased tracks will have the links provided
   there.
    If for some reason you are unable to get things working before race day,
   show up early enough in practice and we will try to help you get set up in
   time to race.
2. The Race start time will not be delayed if you are not ready and you will
   have to join at a later date or time.

Teamspeak   

1. Teamspeak is required to participate in Race # 3. Teamspeak address is
   : 71.65.217.117:9988 pw - scsr.
   although not required it is recommended to join us on Teamspeak for all
   the races.
2. Watch your language, you will be broadcasting into everyone's living
   room, keep the language to family levels.
3. Do not flame on Teamspeak, if you having a problem/issue with another driver, please refrain from arguing over group
    channel, take it outside. Flaming comes with a harsh, immediate Stop/go penalty (to be served under green) and stiff penalty and
    possible ejection from the league. "
    We are serious , you will be penalized or removed from the race. THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU HIT THE BUTTON
4. Please keep Teamspeak chatter to a minimum, use whisper to chat
   among your buddies, during cautions please allow the admins the floor, if
   no issues/drama going on your free to chat it up. Most drivers like it quiet
   for racing so please respect their wishes.

Teamspeak/Racing

1. Although we want to promote friendly chat and get to know each other
   on teamspeak. The administrators have priority on teamspeak during the
   race and may close public chat from time to time. please set up your
   whisper buttons to communicate with other drivers at these times.
2. During green flags runs, please keep public chat to only race related
   items, , example; '83 Kelligrew pitting', 'pass low', 'old tires, staying
   high', etc.
3. When the caution first comes out, public chat is closed, the admins have
   the floor, public chat will reopen during yellow flags, only when the
   administrators give the OK and will close again on the 'one to go' signal.
4. Please make sure your mic is turned on for the race and communicate
   your pitstops, if your wanting drivers to pass you inside or outside, or any
   other race related items. Not everyone sees the message on screen. 
5.  Any Driver who calls out/flames another driver or drivers on Teamspeak,
   will have a lap deducted from their final results.
    This will be cumulative if you do it more than once you get a lap
   deducted per comment.
6. Drivers using vulgar language will also get a lap deduction and may be
   banned from the series for the remainder of the season.

Driving

1. Drive with Respect. Race everyone as you would like to be raced, try to
   make clean passes, don't be the cause of ruining someone's fun.
2. The leader/pole sitter controls the starts and restarts. Stay beside the
   leader/pole sitter (slightly behind) until the green. do not jump the start.
3. No passing before start/finish line on race start and subsequent restarts.
   Don't change lanes, stay in line until you pass the start/finish line.
4. Pitting in will be off turn 4 and exit pits staying on apron until after turn 2 and merge onto backstretch. (this may be track specific and will be
   addressed in the drivers meeting).
5. Announce on Teamspeak/in game chat box that you will be pitting. ie "83
   Kelligrew pitting". Give everyone at least a half a lap notice.
6. When pitting stay to the right until 2-3 stalls before your own, try not to
   drive through the other cars pit stalls.
7. When the yellow comes out hold your position, DO NOT PASS, follow
   game instructions until given green flag.
    If you feel you have been given a bogus penalty, let the admins know
   prior to the green so it can be cleared. Make sure you give time to
   discuss circumstances and clear the penalty, not just as we are coming to
   the green.
8. I can't Stress this enough MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW GAME
   INSTRUCTIONS, if you get out of place it could cause a lot of penalties
   throughout the field.
9. All Drivers please note. Lucky Dog pass cars to the Left. ( rfactor2
   defaults the lucky dog to pass on the left, to do otherwise would add
   confusion to the game as the game instructs you to "pass to the left").
11. Smoking (open setup races only) If you are smoking for more than a
   full lap you will be asked to go down pit road and remove tape.
11. HAVE FUN

Penalties

1. You have 15 laps to serve your penalty, do not panic, communicate with the admins
2. We will not clear EOL penalties if you go down pit road.
3. We will not clear Stop and Go Penalties if you change lanes before the start/finish line on the restart.
4. We will clear Stop and Go penalties if you clear them with the Admin prior to the green
5. We will clear illegal passing on the restart, if you clear it with the admin, after the green flies.
6. All penalties must be communicated to the admins, it is your responsibility to ensure you are heard, there is sometimes a lot of TS
    chatter, don't over talk, you have 15 laps to get your message to the admins, but make sure you are heard.
7. At any time, for the sake of fair play, Admins reserve the right to clear a penalty or penalties because of a scoring error in game.

Server Restarts

The following criteria will be used to determine race restarts;
1. Players get dropped from the server when it switches between sessions.
2. The caution is displayed before the leader crosses the start/finish line
   before the first lap is completed (1 time only).
3. Red Flag called by the Administrators, to be used at their discretion.

Race Restarts

1. There will be 2 attempts to get the race underway during a restart, if a
   third attempt is required, the field will restart single file with no passing
   until the end of turn 2.
2. If you cause a caution on the restart you will be asked to drive down pit
   road on the 'one to go' lap and take your place at the end of the line.
3. This is on the honor system here, own up if you caused the caution, its
   better than being called out by the admin.

Pit Road

1.  Drivers will be required to announce on the in game messaging system
   when they are pitting (you will need to set up a chat button for this), we
   also would like to continue announcing on Teamspeak, but the in game
   messaging will be required.
2. Always enter pit road to the Left of the cone.
3. Obey pit road speed at all times.
4. Stay to the right all the way down pit road until you get 3-5 spaces from
   your own stall, than you may move over and enter your stall. Try not to
   drive through the neighboring Driver's stalls.
5. Do Not pass on pit road (exception here, if car ahead very slow, passing is allowed, but announce on Teamspeak     that your doing so)
6. When leaving the pits move to the far right until the end of pit road.
7. Please pay attention in the Driver's meetings for specific track pit
   entry/exit instructions.

 
    These rules are general for the HORL Friday's league and are subject to change. Any track specific rules will be discuss during the drivers meetings prior to the races.

I had the same issue. Is the ability to rejoin after a disc a server setting or a game setting?

Hey Sandro, deberíamos ser capaces de volver a unirse al servidor si te caen. Sin embargo, algunos dumbass perdió ese ajuste en el archivo player.json. Como se ha corregido, Lo siento que se perdió la carrera anoche
