An unlimited number of participants is possible with an individual private league.

Remark: It is possible to join or leave a league until 4 races before the end of the season.

Ranking:
Race results: The teams are ranked according to their points scored in the race. If teams have an equal score, the team which has been changed earlier is ranked in front. Teams which remain unchanged prior to a race (Guessing the Qualifying positions or the fastest lap time count as a change) are ranked behind other teams with an equal score.

Total score (except race series): The teams are ranked according to their total score. If teams have an equal score, the team with the lower race position index is in front. The race position index is the average of all race positions in a season (the better the race positions, the lower the index).

A league created by a team owner which can be joined by competitors who know the league password. In this league up to 2 teams per team owner are possible. The private league changes into a race series automatically when the number of members comes up to 20.

Option 'Let fill up league with guest teams automatically':
If this option is activated by the league owner, the Private League is filled up with guest teams automatically after the database closing time during a race weekend (as long as enough teams without league assignment are available). Guest teams are marked with a gray highlighted 'G' left beside the team name in the league tables.
This option should be activated if a league owner wants to run a private race series, but is not able to mobilize enough contenders.
2.2.3. Individual Private League (unlimited number of participants):

Like in the official PFRL Cup the qualified teams play against each other in knockout duels resulting in a league cup winner at the end of the season.

The league cup is running additionally and has no influence on the main league competition. Big leagues obtain an additional PFRL Cup qualifying place for its members in the case of an activated league cup feature.

The total number of teams in the 1st division of an Individual Private League is defined by the league owner. The number of league members in the 2nd division of an Individual Private League is unlimited. Teams of both divisions are able to qualify for the PFRL Champions Racing League or for the PFRL Cup, if the league meets the necessary criteria (at least 20 teams and 10 team owner).

Guest teams won't be able to promote or relegate in leagues with 2 divisions.

The teams are ranked within a race series according to special race series points. The following 4 scoring systems are available:
