PitSkill is our brand new Driver Rating System, where we compare your driving to that of the best drivers in Assetto Corsa Competizione, to find out where you should be split in our community for multi-class and split championships, let’s find out how it works!
This system currently only works in Assetto Corsa Competizione, for the GT3 class, however, we will be looking to implement it into the GT4 class in the coming weeks, with the possibility of it being deployed for our Assetto Corsa drivers too, this expands on our daily races system on Assetto Corsa Competizione!
What is PitSkill?
PitSkill compares your rating to the best drivers in Assetto Corsa Competizione that we have in our database over 3 completed events, to begin with, eventually expanding to your “best” 5 completed events, so even if you race in a daily race with people 5 seconds slower than you, it won’t change compared to racing in an evaluation race with people your pace!
How do I get my PitSkill?
We run daily races every single week, these are races that are signed up to via our partnered platform SimRacing.gp and include members only from our community who are looking to either improve their PitSkill or are looking to be ranked.
Can I lose my rank?
You are not able to be de-ranked at the moment, unless a heavy BoP change comes in from Kunos which requires us to reset your PitSkill and re-evaluate you.
How do I increase my PitSkill?
It’s really easy to increase your PitSkill, you enter any GT3 race, drive clean and fair and you may or may not get ranked up dependant on how well you drove that race on average.
What ratings are available?
Right now the following ratings are available for you to be categorised into:
[PRO] – Professional – The top percentage of our drivers.
[SIL] – Silver – Just missed out on being the top percentage.
[BRZ] – Bronze – Your usual middle field drivers.
[AM] – Amateur – Drivers who are usually at the back of the pack, or are new drivers.
[BEG] – Beginners – Drivers who are eligible to enter our “Beginners Cup” on Sundays ( starting on season 6 )
[UR] – Unranked – Has not yet received a rank.
[NR] – No Races – Has completed the pre-requisites, but hasn’t competed in a race yet.
What is this PitSkill for?
The PitSkill system is in place so that drivers can be ranked into their respective splits and championships correctly, right now we have 2 splits for most high-level races, which means usually the splits will look like this:
Split 1: PRO + SIL
Split 2: BRZ + AM
The system we have in place allows for a lot of flexibility, and as the splits grow, so will the rating system to accommodate.
Will my rating change at all?
Dependant on the number of drivers in each rating, your rating may go up or down, this is to ensure that there is a balanced level of drivers in each split when it comes to our Assetto Corsa Competizione championships.
What about incidents?
All of our PitSkill evaluation races fall under a 3 strike ruling system, meaning that if a driver causes 3 accidents over their 3 events which the stewarding team believe could have been avoided by driving safer/cleaner, then the will receive a one month ban from the community, meaning that they will not be able to compete in ANY events.
This is in place to ensure that drivers are driving clean and fair and are not pushing themselves to the limits to try and improve their PitSkill.
Please read our rules and regulations for more information on our rulings, including how to report them once the race is done.
Can drivers rated as beginners join leagues other than the Beginners Cup?
Yes, all of our drivers are welcome in any of our leagues, however, the Beginners cup is exclusively for beginners, rather than having aliens within it too, giving drivers a safe place to fight amongst drivers at their pace!
Great! How do I get involved?
Simple, head on over to our discord and read our “Getting Started” channel for more information, you will need to be signed up to our new partnered platform to join and get ranked!
