PitSkill is our brand new and exclusive Driver Rating System, automatically managed on our Discord Server where we compare your driving to that of the best drivers in Assetto Corsa Competizione, allowing for you to always find close, clean racing in our Assetto Corsa Competizione leagues, championships and events!
We’re also using PitSkill as our brand new system of running casual events, for those who are unable to commit to a full championship, this means, veteran drivers and beginners alike will be able to drive within the community and meet new drivers to race with, you can sign up now to any of our PitSkill open series now!
Frequently Asked Questions
This system currently only works in Assetto Corsa Competizione, working across all classes of cars, GT3, Porsche Cup, Super Trofeo and GT4, with the possibility of it being deployed for our Assetto Corsa drivers too dependant on demand, this expands on our daily races system on Assetto Corsa Competizione, where you can race and constantly improve your PitSkill rating in our community!
What is PitSkill?
PitSkill compares your rating to the best drivers in Assetto Corsa Competizione that we have in our database, so even if you race in a daily race with people 5 seconds slower than you, it won’t matter, as we use the skill levels globally to ensure you are placed in championship groups in our weekly leagues and events that match your skill level!
Requirements to get a PitSkill Rating:
- Join our discord server: https://discord.gg/pWNZwMcHAS
- Sign-up to our partner platform SimRacing.gp
- Join our community: https://beta.simracing.gp/communities/1772eUSJzLnh64svJwv7f#about
- Race in a minimum of 2 of our PitSkill Series events on Assetto Corsa Competizione: https://beta.simracing.gp/communities/1772eUSJzLnh64svJwv7f#series
- Await your rank being updated, this may take more than 2 races to update based on if you met the cut-off lap times or not.
Is there a cut-off, as i’ve completed more than 2 races?
Yes, we have a skill-rating cut-off on lap times to ensure that drivers that are entering our championships have learnt and practised the tracks before entering any championships, as well as to ensure that we do not calculate your skill level based on rain races. This allows us to have clean, close competitive racing.
You will need to keep racing in PitSkill events until you get a rank, ensure you practice beforehand!
Can I lose my rank?
Yes, your rank may go upwards or downwards dependant on your abilities, however it should settle after a while.
How do I increase my PitSkill?
It’s straightforward to increase your PitSkill, drive clean, fair and fast, just as you would in any other league race, and you’ll slowly start to increase your PitSkill rating when you earn a new rank; the bot in Discord will let you know!
What ratings are available?
Right now the following ratings are available for you to be categorised into, these are all depicted by a tag at the end of your name on our Discord Server or by typing in our discord:
The following are the ratings, from best to worst.
[AL] – Alien – The best of the best drivers in the community, still included in the automatic ratings.
[UR] – Unranked – Has not yet received a rank, but has participated in some PitSkill events and is being tracked.
[NR] – No Races – Has completed the pre-requisites, but hasn’t competed in a race yet.
What’s a Split?
A Split is used for our championship leagues and events and is based on our rating system as defined above, these are then used to put you in the correct class in our leagues, so you are always fighting with drivers around a similar level as yourself for points!
What is this PitSkill for?
The PitSkill system is in place to ensure our racing is fair, clean and close all the way throughout our leagues and championships, allowing us to continue improving our racing quality and push more of that “better racing” which we’re looking to bring to the Assetto Corsa Competizione racing community.
Will my rating change at all?
Depending 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?
Incidents are managed as any other post-race incidents are managed in our community, for full details please ensure to read our rules and regulations for information on how to report drivers in PitSkill races and what the punishments are, we use the PitSkill system to also ensure that any drivers that get into our leagues are safe, clean drivers, so ensure you report ANY drivers which you feel breach our rules!
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, but are rather following our community ethos of clean, close racing.
What leagues can I join?
Starting in Season 7, the following leagues are open to drivers to join:
Unrated drivers are only able to race in the PitSkill Series races, these are open to any driver in/new to our community and have mixed skill sets, so be clean, race safe and ensure that you understand that the drivers are of mixed skill sets, these are sometimes live stewarded from time to time too.
Beginner drivers are recommended to first improve their ranking via the Beginners Cup with runs on Sundays, where only beginner rated drivers can race. If you wish to drive with drivers who are above your skill level, however, you may join any championship with an “RK” tag on it, this is to show that rookie drivers are allowed to race.
AM and above Split
You are able to join all events aside from the Beginners cup as this is specifically tailored for drivers who are new to the game, each event will have the information on that specific event on our discord/SimRacing.gp for which car/class you must pick.
