Host should start on time. The only reason to delay start, is to allow a driver already in the lobby their 3 min to sort out connection issues

Hey team, that racing last night was a blast! From bowling through the first corner of GV to almost three wide at HSR and doing the impossible of keeping @Worst_Driver behind me for three laps at Fuji, those were some of the best combos yet!

Looking forward to seeing if anyone was able to snap some pics.
Photos coming your way but first, I was proud of that save in the first race so I had to share it. Full on opposite lock.

  6. Nic-KL ------------ voted to eliminate Round 2 - NR
  7. Dragonwhisky ------ voted to eliminate Round 3 - Prize C
  8. JamCar0ne --------- voted to eliminate Round 3
  9. RacingChamp30 ----- voted to eliminate Round 1
  10. Flyingdisc315 ----- did not submit a vote
  11. Gurney_67 --------- voted to eliminate Round 1
  12. Canoworms1 -------- voted to eliminate Round 2
  13. Unsteddie --------- voted to eliminate Round 1
  14. TokenTimmy -------- voted to eliminate Round 3
  15. cesarr64 ---------- voted to eliminate Round 1
The round that received the most elimination votes was:
Round 1 - Volkswagen Polo GTI '14 (SH) at Grand Valley South - Reverse - S03 Late Morning (11 laps)
Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Kgffy wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
Round 2 - Chevrolet Corvette C8 '20 (RH) at High Speed Ring - C03 Twilight (13 laps)
This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @A_Higher_Place gets Prize B, he has the option to freeze the car or the track, or he can give that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the freeze away, then he gets to decide what car or track replaces the part of the combo that is left unfrozen by the Prize C winner.

Prize C goes to @Dragonwhisky so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your prize selection until all incident reports have been filed and it has been confirmed that you don't have any penalties. It's also recommended that you review the SNAIL combo history and other data on our car and track history so that you can get an idea how many times we've raced each car and track. Please remember that originality is always appreciated, so picking cars and/or tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). What's more important is that you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, any car you select must not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a draft).

IMPORTANT: When posting your Prize A or Prize B selection, please list the complete in-game name of the car and/or track you are selecting. For example, if you want to choose the Integra Type R as your car selection, post "Honda Integra Type R (DC2) '98". If you want to select Monza for your track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". Being specific helps us to update the lineup accurately and also helps avoid any confusion among the drivers. Also, please be sure to list the HP and Weight (LBS) of any car you select. For track selections, include the time of day (e.g: 09:00 Clear) or else it will be left to default.

Car Selection Guidelines
See Section 3 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines.

Prize C, or whichever one it is - Maserati MC20 '20 @680.68PP on RM, 1:08.5 MDLT
Doesn't look like it's ever been raced and is a car for Menu 26.
Took that Tundra out for a spin on HSR. That thing ain't got enuff power to pull itself outta 5th gear, downhill.
 
Sign Ups OPEN for new Friday night series.

Basically, we will be running select MR/RR supercars with Rwd and Awd built to a GT4-like weight and regulation, but with GT3-like horsepower. These cars will start off as street cars and then be built into a racecar to the required series regulations.

Performance handicaps and concessions will be afforded after each event to gradually even out the field as the season progresses.

Have a look at the link below, and feel free to join us for some Friday Night SNAIL Racing.

I have no time too test so just putting out a Prize based on information on phone,

Prize A Dodge Viper Group-4 RH tires @ WeatherTech Raceway Laguna.
Don't know how it's changed since I did the CE for Laguna but my 1 lap record there was 1:28.354. The CE uses the G4 Viper. Close enough for gubmint work I reckon.
