You can thank me after Sunday :cheers:.
Well let me be the first to say I was scoffing mightily at this car because I historically hate the new Mini cars.

BUT...

Just ran a couple of laps now as I prepare to host the SNAIL DRIVETRAIN CHALLENGE TONIGHT AT 10PM (shameless plug)...

And I'll be damned if this combo isn't fun as hell. Track is great, car is great. Just fan-damn-tastic all around.

3 laps in and I was doing low 1:46's.

This will be one of the few combos that just speak to me (combos where I can do ok on very little practice).

So...good effing choice.

Want to win a Playseat Evolution?

Did you see this contest GTPlanet is hosting?

Even more incentive to go for it in Round 2 of the GT Academy. The Top 10 in the US will get to race for a Playseat Evolution. No offense to @GranStand Bill, but a free Playseat Evolution (andT500RS)? That would be awesome. As of right now, we have four SNAILs in the top 10 US. They are (doodle is ineligible - have to be over 18:

@Adventuruss - 3rd
@K1utch - 5th
@ptslopoke - 7th
@redsoxboy80 - 8th

Just outside the top 10 is:

@Neovre - 11th (by .002)

Have you guys ever tried spec racing but with 2 cars to choose from? For instance two cars that are classic competitors and more or less the same car. Say WRX vs EVO or Camaro vs Mustang, 458 Italia vs LFA. Not trying to stir the pot, just thought I'd share a vision with you all. Maybe an alternate race for each div that is optional and bragging rights only so it doesn't have to take up more time if you don't want.

OK, I score kept for D8 this week. But now I am watching the replay and am a little confused. I thought @Pichon617 had pole in Round 1. But the replay has @FBR_Steve in the first spot. Did I get that wrong? Then in the next race Pichon617 was at the back, which would be consistent to a flip around base don qualy times... any ideas? Was I mistaken?
I had the pole in the BRZ race

I remember we did something a few years ago in GT5. We put the faster drivers in a slightly slower car. With GT5 draft, they could keep up, but never pass. It was lots of fun and kept the cars clumped together without the use of Boost.

My fault, big error on my part. Ignoring what was posted above, I will choose to freeze the track at Tokyo R246.

Really sorry guys, I got a bit confused there.


carczar has decided to freeze the track so it's up to @joe_diben to choose a car to run at Tokyo.

Speaking of this new "Playseat Challenge", our third GranStrand Challenge is complete and I'll be working on the list of finalists and their number of picks soon.

As for how we'll determine the winner, we'll be using @GumballCGT fast lap during a race again. This time, it'll be at Silverstone later this month. :)

I certainly appreciate you stepping up and handling all the D1 stuff @dgaf95integra . Since D1 rarely submits IRs we don't usually need their replays, so haven't needed them very often. D1 has IRs filed this week, so, we need them.

Hey Digi, that was a bit random! This weeks combos have already been selected and posted.

Maybe he was just "planting a seed" for many to consider. We raced that combo in GT-5, if memory serves.
(Memory has not been speaking to me lately .... wonder if I have offended it, or something)

Hello,
I'd like to join this Snailracing league on GT6.
PSN ID: fallingskye196
I've raced quite a bit in GT5, but I've only been in one GT6 race Online. I've gotten up to my iB licence in career and I'm lookin for some more fun online racing :)
@Skye Hellums,
Thanks for your interest!
We would love to have you in the league. Here's what you need to know and do in order to join:

We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the S.N.A.I.L. OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide.
Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

1. You take the S.N.A.I.L. OLR and Racecraft Test

2. You run the Time Trial and submit your information by 23:59 EST on Saturday night if you want to race this Sunday.

3. @JLBowler PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. You will be added to the drivers list.

4. The Race Director or Primary Host from the corresponding SNAIL Division will send you a PSN friend request. Sunday night you will need to sort the online lobbies by friends and join the lobby named 'snailracing.org Division_(x) based off your Division placement from JLBowler. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday 👍

The original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread.

If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.


During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.

Welcome to S.N.A.I.L. :cheers:

Are you guys still not able to see any data? I updated the link to the tab May season, but even clicking on the old April link should have at least taken you guys to the results doc.

I see it now (sorry, didn't check until this morning).

Question, however. If someone disconnects after completing the qualifier but before the start of a race, do they get 0 points or last place points?
I ask because this happened to be on Round 3, Race 1... it's not a big deal as it was a pretty full room so last place points changes nothing... but curious because I remember it being discussed in our room that night.

As long as you start the qualifier, you receive points. The tricky part is when multiple people disconnect during qualifying and you have to remember who disco'd first.

I can help with D1 replays and be back-up for points starting this Sunday, I wasn't very "snaily" this Sunday and didn't save the replays.
