Once Downloaded & Online Racing
- You must be registered to the NZSCH Forum & Introduced Yourself to keep track of what is happening for your racing progress in the future and for the communities’ best interest. The name you are on the forum will be the name you are expected to run in the server, names can be shortened if racing in the server. Example: Keith Frank 4p = Keith4p.
- All download's must be installed correctly and you are on a understanding of the Racing Rules & Community Rules. This is expected at all times in. You will respect these rules at all times, this is a standard everyone must follow. Failure to do so will remove you from all affiliated NZSCH events and open server racing with a time seen fit. If you are a financial driver there is no refund for your fees.
- When you're ready to race online, you will enter the server with your name. While you are racing online, your progress will be watched by the current Financial Drivers in the open server at all times. From there, a current financial driver will nominate you, there will be a vote for you to progress to Newbie Development list. You will be sent a private message on the forum so keep an eye on it. You will be judged on your connection, control of car, attitude. Any negative will be marked against you and slow your progress.
- Once you have gained enough server time, and the Financial Drivers & Admin Panel have given you the green light regarding your ethic toward the community. You'll be given the option to become a financial member. A yearly $10.00 fee which gives you access to events on offer.
