    Wasn't eligible last time around. I haven't seen any official rules for this one but I would assume they are the same. I will play around with it enough to get whatever bonuses they hand out for playing but not much else.

    The "PERFECT 100" Points System

    Effective immediately, we will be using a slightly different points system for our Sunday night league races. I call it the "perfect" points system because the maximum number of points that can be scored each night is a symbolically perfect 100. Standardizing on this 100-point scale will allow us not only to compare our scores againts other drivers, it will allow us to compare our scores against ourselves - from week-to-week, or month-to-month, or even division-to-division! Here's how it'll work:

    Instead of basing our points on the number of drivers who start or finish a race, we will award our points based on this fixed scale:

    Finish / Points
    1. 16 points
    2. 15 points
    3. 14 points
    4. 13 points
    5. 12 points
    6. 11 points
    7. 10 points
    8. 9 points
    9. 8 points
    10. 7 points
    11. 6 points
    12. 5 points
    13. 4 points
    14. 3 points
    15. 2 points
    16. 1 point

    Since we have six races during the course of the night, the maximum number of points that can be scored from all six races will be 96 (6 races x 16 points = 96)

    The bonus points awarded for pole positions will remain the same. We have three rounds of car and track combos, so there will still be three pole positions to compete for, which means another 3 points that can be earned.

    However, there will now be a "Triple Crown" bonus point for anyone who wins pole position in all three rounds (1 point).

    Therefore, here's a calculation on the maximum points:

    96 + 3 + 1 = 100 points!

    Please note that if one or more drivers quits or gets disconnected during a race, they will still be awarded points based on the chart listed above. However, drivers who voluntarily pit their car will be treated the same as drivers who involuntarily get disconnected. The finishing position for those drivers will depend on when the event happened (how many laps those drivers completed). In other words, someone who gets disconnected from the lounge for whatever reason will always get a higher finish (and more points) than someone who just decided to pull over and quit earlier in the race.

    Very nice system, see what can happen when we give feedback, it gives everyone something to think about. This was a good change =)

    Zero, you said you could track points week to week or month to month, would it be possible to have a points tally to act as sort of a championship points total? With the old points scale this wouldn't be 100% possible due to the sliding scale, with the New fixed scale it would be. For arguments sake, the points tally for that could start this Race so everyone's on a clean slate so to speak, no one has an advantage due to being here longer.
    I would keep all division points tally'd in the same grouping because even tho some would win in D3/D2 they would be promoted and have to win in the next higher up Div to keep up their win streak.

    I found that painful to read.

    "could post average points per race, per division and we could see who was points leader per month or quarter or maintained the highest average and"


    What happened, did your space bar on your keyboard stop working?

    Running a few practice laps in the D1 lounge (all races, in order, prob 5-10 laps each).

    I do not expect to run all that well, but I figure if I can stay on the track, it is likely to help.

    Once my students finish our state testing in 3 weeks, I should get most of my brain, and much of my sleep back. ;-)

    If I stay on the track, finish before we clock-out, race clean, and feel like I learned or did better, that'll be fine.

    I am really dithering on continuing with GT5 once I realized that 3 things were seeming to be accurate:
    1). Despite getting my main acct to 40 and this one to 34 in A spec, I know nothing about driving
    2). With coaching, I improve, bout am still D.F.L. In standings.
    3). With coaching and practice, I seem to be stuck in#2.

    I wonder if I am just too late to picking up racing games - got my PS3 2 years ago, first console since I upgraded my 2600 to a 5200!

    That, or a lack or real racing experience seems to matter. Damn you, my minivan of suburban dad angst!

    Back to finding a cleaner line in Nurburgring, then the garage gulag for a bit more on the HoneyDo list.

    Similar story to me, before the PS3 my last console was the Super Nintendo. I started current gen driving games with F1 2010 and at the urging of a friend got GT5.

    By doing the license tests I was able to gain 'some' knowledge of how to drive a car in the game and was reasonable but certainly not fast.

    The step to the next level of speed for me was getting some how to race books and applying what was said. I got the books because I wanted to learn how to take corners fast, but there's so much more to it than that. Psychological being at least as important.

    Getting advice and following/watching faster drivers will also help you understand what to do and how.

    Seat time in a race situation has made a huge difference too. The more you are in a specific situation, the more comfortable you become.

    Don't get me wrong, I have no delusions of grandeur. I'm fast enough and slowly getting faster. I know I'm mid D1 at best, for now ;).

    D2 & 3 are not places to be looked down on. Great racing happens in all our divisions and if you check the numbers, there isn't much to separate any of them.

    I for one hope you stick with it!

    First time in D1 and I can't race. Sorry for late notice. Parents just told me that we're going to some relatives house for dinner. Sorry again! I'll be back next week.
