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 simracerhub 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 simracerhub 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 required to start from pits for the 5th race. This review will repeat every 4 races with the subsuequent 5th race being a “No Grid” race
IPL (incidents per lap)
IPL Limit 0.041
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
ARCA & Truck Series
