IPL (incidents per lap) System
Starting with the roll out of the new 2020 seasons we will be implementing a new IPL (incidents per lap) system in each series. This IPL system will be scored individually in each series. The IPL system is designed to promote good race-craft, allowing drivers the ability to reduce incident point average, by continuing to run CLEAN laps.
Drivers will need to review their IPL average in danlisa as they check the individual series standings. This new system will free up the Replay Admins and the workload of writing and posting of numerous penalties.
The danlisa program, used for our scoring system is a very in depth program that records almost everything you do, while participating in one of the OBRL series. The goal of all drivers in each series must maintain an IPL average at or below the number specified in chart below.
How IPL System Work In Each Series:
• Completion of 4 races in a series – Driver establishes an IPL (incidents per lap) average
• Drivers who exceed Series IPL Limit (After 4 Races) – Will be placed on a 4 race probation
• After 4 race probationary period – Drivers who exceed IPL limit will be suspended for 1 race
• Suspension for 1 race – Drivers who exceed the IPL limit after the 4 race probationary period
• After 1 Race Suspension – Allowed to resume racing for an another 4 race probationary period
IPL (incidents per lap)
IPL Limit 0.031
Laps Needed To Lower Your IPL Is Based on Total Incidents Divided By Total Laps Completed Raced. It is not possible to determine how many laps it takes to lower your IPL by 0.001. It changes by the number of laps you complete.
If you quit a race prematurely, you will not lower your IPL, so It is to your advantage to run as many laps clean laps as possible to lower your IPL
40 week Grand National & Cup Series
Allowed 2 race suspensions, plus an additional 4 race probation to get IPL average at or below the series limit (see chart). Failure to achieve this after 18 races, that driver will be suspended for the remainder of the season. Welcomed to comeback the following season to try again.
Last Race of a 4 Race Probationary Period
After the last race of a 4 race probationary period a driver can appeal his incidents, in the last race. This appeal is for a review of the responsibility of the incidents in the last race only.
To Appeal Last Race
• Fill out the appeal form on website
• Submit $10.00 with a 1 lap replay of each incident
• Replay admins will review to determine responsibility of the incidents
• If driver is found not responsible for incident, they will be removed in danlisa and refunded the $10.00 appeal fee
All drivers who exceeds the IPL limit in a series, (after establishing an IPL average) will be put on a 4 race probationary period.
After the completion of a every season series, the IPL process resets and starts all over again in each series.
All drivers will need to review their IPL average. It is the drivers responsibility to know and control their IPL.
To View IPL Average:
• Go to the OBRL website
• Select Standings
• Then select Series
• IPL can be rearranged by clicking on Inc/Lap
