Each race will begin with a Pace Lap for the standing gridded start for Lap 2, and will be controlled by the Pole Sitter with the race clock. The Pole Sitter will give specific time within the race clock to start the race. The racing grid will be organized with the odd placed drivers on the racing line in relation to Turn 1, and the even placed drivers on the other side. If there are no grid boxes, first place will pick a starting place on the correct side of the track. Drivers will use 20 foot (6 meter) spacing from the driver ahead.
For the Non Championship race they will begin with a Pace Lap for the rolling gridded start on Lap 2, and will be controlled by the Pole Sitter, but should not exceed 80 mph in the final sector. He will also control the start of the race. The Pole Sitter will wait for the back of the grid to exit the final corner and hear "CLEAR" from the drivers at the back. At this point, the pole sitter can go at any time between the "clear" and the first turn without vocalization. As soon as drivers see distance to 1st rapidly increasing, the race is on for ALL drivers. The racing grid will be organized with the odd placed drivers on the racing line in relation to Turn 1, and the even placed drivers on the other side. While starting the race, please be cautious by leaving room between rows.
A restart or re grid will only take place if the following happens:
- The lobby has been setup wrong, Restart
- Drivers lag out within their first flying lap. In the event that 1 player only lags out, he will then start at the back of the grid. If more than one driver lags out, the race will restart as the original qualifying results, Restart
- Racing collision involving 3 or more cars within the 50% of the race, Re Grid
- Large lag related crash within the first lap, Re Grid
Re Grids are a Forza version of a restart where by those who are unaffected will take a lap to slow down and re form a starting grid much like that of a formation lap. Those who are damaged and have to pit during the re formation will start from the end of pit lane. While it doesn't allow for those affected to be staright back in the action it does allow them to catch back up and give them another chance. There will only be two re grids allowed per race weekend and they can only occur within the first 50% of the race.

This championship will be using the standard TURN points system which looks like this
LAGOUTS AND QUITS
If you do not finish a race for some reason, you will be classified as a retirement and your finishing position will be determined by the 75% rule, if you retire before 75% race completion, you will receive last placed points overall with the lap you retired on determining your position among other drivers of a similar situation. However, if you retire after 75% race completion, you will receive last placed points for your lobby.
If you cannot connect to your race room, you will still be awarded race points, but you will be given last place points. If others cannot connect, the order will be determined by driver standing in the season.

TURN events are catered for fun, clean, competitive racing and all skill levels are welcomed to participate but all we ask is that you are committed to the event. This means, if you sign up an event, you should complete it. If you are not committed, then TURN isn't for you. Please remember that communication is vital when participating. Even with cosmetic damage, chances cannot be taken that will risk other drivers. No one's race should ever be ruined by someone else's mistake.
