Before we move forward to race series, let’s go over license classes. Your license class acts as sort of a skill ranking system – it determines which series you are qualified to participate in. Everyone starts off with a rookie license. From there, you can work your way to class D, C, B, A, and if you can make the cut, the Pro license level. Each license level allows you to participate in more race series – we offer over 40 in total. You can view your current license at the top of the page. Click it to have it switch between your Road and Oval licenses.Take note of the number next to your helmet. This is your safety rating, which starts at 2.5. Now, your safety rating is indicative on how clean and consistent your racing is – it fluctuates based on the amount of incidents that occur in official sessions. For example, if you go off track, spin out, or make contact with other drivers, your safety rating will decrease. The cleaner your laps are, the more your safety rating will steadily increase.
A high safety rating will help you get promoted into the next license class. Getting promoted into the next license level allows you to participate in more race series. Check out your promotion status by going to your Profile page. If you scroll to the bottom, you’ll find instructions on how to get yourself promoted to the next license level. As a rookie, you’ll need to participate in 2 races or 4 time trials, and have a safety rating of over 3.0 in order to be promoted to Class D. From there, you can work your way to class C, B, A, and if you can make the cut, the Pro license level. Once you meet the promotion requirements, you be automatically promoted at the end of the current race season.
