What do I need to get promoted to the next License Class?


Rookie:
Rookies are required to participate in at least four official Time Trial sessions OR two official Race Sessions during the current 12-week racing season in order to earn a Class D license (provided their safety record meets the minimum standard) in a particular category.

Non-Rookie:
All non-rookies are required to participate in at least four official Time Trial sessions OR four official Race sessions during the current 12-week racing season in the series in which they are licensed in order to be promoted (provided their safety record meets the minimum standard) in a particular category.

Official Races:
For a race to be official, the race must meet the official minimum field size requirements. For a driver to be credited with an official race start, the driver must complete at least one lap in an official race session and receive championship points.

Official Time Trial:
A Time Trial is only official if a driver completes the required number of consecutive incident free laps and receives a Fastest "X” Lap Avg. time in the session. biyografi filmleri

Minimum Race Participation (MPR):
Drivers must participate in a series with minimum license eligibility requirements that match the driver’s current license level in a given category. Sessions in a series with minimum license eligibility requirements below the driver’s current license level ("racing down”) will not count.

Example:
A driver with a Class D road racing license may complete the minimum participation requirements for the current season by competing in four Time Trials or four Race sessions in the Class D Skip Barber Race Series. But if the same driver runs sessions in the Advanced Rookie Solstice series (racing down), the sessions will not count towards his/her minimum participation requirement.

Minimum Safety Requirements:
A driver must achieve and maintain a Safety Rating within a certain range to advance to the next license level. A driver can track his or her safety record by the Safety Rating number on each category-specific license.

Drivers will start out with a Rookie License with a Safety Rating of 2.50 in each category. As they complete sessions safely, their Safety Rating will rise. Conversely, multiple incidents will cause their safety rating to fall.

Promototion:

Fast Track: Drivers having earned a 4.00 Safety Rating at any point during the season and having met the MPR will be promoted to the next higher license level.

End of Season: Drivers having earned a 3.00 Safety Rating during the course of a season will be promoted to the next higher license level at the conclusion of that season (provided the minimum participation requirement is met).

Demotion

During the Season: Drivers whose safety ratings drop below 1.0 at any point during a season, including participants in the Pro Series, will be demoted to a lower license level.

Pro-License holders will have to improve their A level license to a 4.0 safety rating and only then will be automatically reinstated.” Moreover, if they drop below an A level license, they will have to meet the requirements to work their way back up to an A level and the 4.0 safety rating.

Rookie and Class D License holders are not subject to in-season or end- of-season demotions.

Class A drivers are subject to only demotions during the season unless said driver was demoted from a Pro-License.

End of Season: Drivers with a 2.00 - 2.99 Safety Rating will remain at the same license level, and drivers with a Safety Rating below 2.00 will be demoted to the next-lower license level at the conclusion of the season.
