What is a Safety Rating?

Safety Rating is a measure of each driver's ability to drive and compete safely while on track alone or with other competitors. Each class of license has a Safety Rating of 1.00 to 5.00. As you complete sessions, your safety rating will rise or fall based on the number of incidents accrued in a given session. Completing an incident free session will cause a rise in your Safety Rating. A driver's safety rating is the sole determining factor in promotion to the next license class. Maintaining a Safety Rating of 3.00 or higher will ensure promotion to the next license class.

Please be aware that license classes and major SR levels overlap slightly. This is done so that your license does not bounce up or down due to a small SR change whenever you run a session and your license or SR is near a boundary. Otherwise, a small SR change could impact the Series in which you are allowed to participate. A side effect is that whenever your license does change (say from Class D to Class C) or your SR changes a major level (say from 3 to 2), the change will include an extra bump of around 0.4 SR that reflects this overlap.

Note: Achieving a Safety Rating of 3.00 or higher during your rookie season will allow you to compete with the Advanced Rookie Cars and a Safety Rating of 4.00 or higher will allow you to compete in Class "D" Races.
