IPL (incidents per lap) System

Starting with the roll out of the new 2021 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:

How IPL System Work In Each Series:

Completion of 4 races in a series – IPL (incidents per lap) will be reviewed and penalty accessed if above IPL limit for each series.
Drivers who exceed Series IPL Limit After the 4th and 8th Races ect. Will be required to start their race 5 or 9 ect. from the Pits

IPL (incidents per lap)
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.

IPL (incidents per lap)
IPL Limit 0.035

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

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
