Penalty Catalogue

At SimRacing eSport Union we are trying to keep racing clean. In order to provide people in doing so, we developed the following Penalty Catalgoue.

If there has been a protest against you, Racecontrol will decide the infrigtion according to the Penalty Categories, which will result in a Penalty Degree spoken out to you.
