Driver Eligibility and Conduct.
- Drivers must meet the eligibilty requirements of the sanctioning organization in order to race in the series. Since many of the scheduled races are run with SVRA/HSR a Super License is required. Drivers should review the qualification requirements and apply directly with SVRA/HSR for a Super License.
- Drivers must conform to the "style of driving" expected at vintage racing events.
- Drivers put on probation or suspended by the sanctioning organization at a championship series event, regardless of car or run group, will forfeit all points for the event.
Historic Indy Lights Racing - Purpose, Structure and Management.
- Historic Indy Lights Racing (HILR) is a group of race car owners, drivers and supporting businesses that have a common goal of promoting and racing cars that ran in the CART sanctioned series between 1986 and 2001 and IRL Infinite Pro Series from 2002 to 2005.
- HILR is not a business, it does not collect dues or have any type of revenue stream. Expenses incurred such as website hosting , trophy purchasing and limited advertising are paid directly by various participants of the group.
- HILR has no members or membership requirements. Participation by anyone is entirely voluntary and therefore no liability is assumed by HILR.
- HILR essentially does the following: a) Serves as a single point of contact for all interested parties b) Creates and maintains a set of competition rules. c) Creates and maintains a scoring formula. d) Works directly with sanctioning organizations such as SVRA, HSR, HMP and the tracks to promote the series and selects race events that comprise the HILR schedule e) Tracks and publishes the scores following each race event f) Communicates with all group participants as required g) Promotes the series through press releases, magazine articles and participation in relevant trade shows
- HILR is managed by an individual (referred to as "the manager") who works closely with all members of the group to achieve consensus and to make decisions when consensus cannot be reached. For year 2015 Steve Scullen will serve as the Manager. He can be reached on 617 921 1974 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- The 2018 Indy Lights Championship series will consist of 14 Sprint races run at seven events.
- There will be two sprint races per event i.e. the Saturday Qualifying Race and the Sunday Feature Race. If there are 2 feature races at any event then these 2 races will be the points scoring races. Both races will be gridded according to the organizers standard procedure. SVRA grid the 1st race based on fastest time from the sessions to date and the grid for the 2nd race is based on fastest time from the 1st race.
- The best 10 of 14 races will be counted in championship points standings. This allows competitors to skip events due to various conflicts and still retain a chance to win the Championship. A minimum of three race weekends must be completed to qualify.
- Points will be awarded based on finishing position of eligible cars running in the HILR Series. Non eligible cars will be excluded from the scoring process as if they were no in the race.
- Cars which start a race and are unable to finish will be awarded 5 points. To be eligible for finishing position points , a competitor must complete a minimum of 50% of the total laps of the race.
- Scoring will be derived directly from timing and scoring sheets of the sanctioning organization.
- Trophies will be awarded to the top three competitors according to championship points standings following the last race of the series.
- Points are awarded as follows:
