** Majors Licensing System **
With the 2022 Season the Majors has introduced the following changes to the Licensing System/Procedures
✔️ Introduction of the Protest Token System [Rule: 9.1.4 Protest Tokens] Each driver begins the season with 3 [Protest] Tokens.
Protests filed which are unsuccessful (No Penalty Issued) will result in the protesting driver having 1 Token removed from their total count. Once a driver has reached 0 Tokens
each subsequent protest filed which is unsuccessful (No Penalty Issued), the protesting driver will have 2 demerits applied to their License.
** There is no current procedure in place to re-acquire tokens through the season. If you reach 0 you will be at risk for the remainder of the season when filing a protest.
✔️ Removal of the Driver CPI Demerits/Adjustments to Demerit Thresholds [11.1.2 License Demerit Limit]
Once a driver accumulates 8 demerits against them, said driver will receive a 1 event ban in their home region.
** Drivers at risk of reaching 8 demerits and subsequently a race ban may now utilize Additional Demerit Drops in accordance to rule [11.1.4 Additional Demerit Drops]
** Wildcard Weekends are 3 events and banned drivers may still participate in events outside their home region.
If a driver runs a support race cleanly (8 or less incidents / No Successful Protests Against), runs 250% of the required practice laps, runs
the next Event without being protested successfully their license will have 2 demerits removed for the next 4 races. (up to a max of 4 times for the year)
** Demerit Drop Request MUST be filed before the first official support race of the upcoming event.
