How does driver rating system work?

World Sim Series uses a sophisticated calculation system to define the rating of each driver – ELO rating system. If you win against a higher rating driver you will get more rating points than winning against lower rating driver. In a race you basically win against everyone who is behind you and lose against everyone in front of you.

How does driver divisions work?

In race events where there is unlimited registered driver count and more registered drivers than the circuit allows – the system will split drivers into multiple divisions and create multiple servers. Highest rating drivers appear in division 1, lower rating drivers appear in division 2 and so on.
