The GSRC Stewards Room contact will happen via Smartsheet forms, and there are two circumstances in which you might choose to make contact with them:

In both of these cases, the step is the same.  Use the GSRC Stewards Room Form to submit your information, and you will receive a reply back via email. Make sure you use your correct email address, as the system will use this to inform you of the result of your protest. Stewards are made up of a collection of GSRC Admin and Club Members who voulenteer their time to help out the Club.

we always welcome more Club Members to voulenteer and be  part of the Stewards Process. if you would like more information, please email the  club.

The Stewarding Process sees all availible Stewards asked to review any open incidents, and then leave comments on thier opionon of incident and recomended penalty options.

The GSRC Chief Steward will then (Generally over weekends)* also review the open incidents, and review all comments left by fellow stewards before making the final decision.

If a Reported Inc involves a driver that is a Team mate of a Steward, that steward way comment on inc, however there must also be coments from other non team affiliated stewards for Chief Steward to base their decision on.

If a Reported Inc involves a driver currently on the Stewarding team, they are  not eligible to comment on that incidents dicision process.
If Chief Steward is involved in the Reported Inc, the decision will then be more on the regular Stewards to come to an agreement on what action should be taken.

These above actions are in place as to maintain fairness to all club members.

I’ve received an email telling me the Stewards have penalised me.

When the Stewards complete an investigation and list you as at fault, you will receive an automated email from the Club. You can review all the information in the easiest format (including any clips attached in the protest) by clicking on “View Request”. 

You then also have the option to appeal the decision.
MAKE SURE if you choose to apeal you add your reasoning and any extra evidence if availible into the "Comments" Box BEFORE clicking “I wish to appeal”.

As once you click "I Wish to Appeal" that completes your Appeal process and sends us a Blank Appeal, which Stewards have no new info to go on to warrant an appeal.

Please note that all appeals should be sent back to the Club within 24 hrs of receiving the email to be considered, and must contain some further information and ideally further attached videos.  (eg, “I don’t agree” is not sufficient).
