    I've been told that a member under a pseudonym was the one who recommended me, who is it was apparently classified information.

    Wow, be out of the loop for a day or so and you've got a lot of catching up to do :crazy:

    I've got the new S.N.A.I.L.s time trials all dealt with, thanks for submitting them :tup:

    And a little later today will be posting the new Drivers List for January with 6 Divisions :cool:

    Just take them and post them up here. Jobyone is our resident banner maker. He chooses from the posted photos in the thread.

    Yes, absolutely. In fact, you don't even have to ask. Just post cool photos of any new car that's been added to our lineup, and you can earn $hells for them. $hells are our league currency that you can used like money to buy cool SNAIL SWAG. To learn more, click on the Marketplace link in my sig. To earn $hells after you've posted banner photos, just click on the "earn $hells" link in my sig. Remember, @jobyone doesn't have to actually use your photo for you to be able to earn $hells. You just have to post them so that he has the option of using them. :)

    EDIT: Ninja'd by Bowler. What he said. :tup:

    A turtle was mugged by two snails. When the police arrived and asked the turtle what happened, all he could say was "I'm not sure it happened so fast"!
    Happy New Year everyone!:cheers:

    @KTR5,
    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.

    3. @kcheeb PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. kcheeb will add you 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_1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6' based off your placement from kcheeb. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

    5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    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.
    To avoid duplication, the currently claimed combinations can be found 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:

    I believe that is your PSN Name (now).

    Before the 1.02 patch, names in the lobby did not match user's PSN name, and.. It stunk.

    FINALLY! Welcome buddy... GTP_Romi is one of my best friends and after almost a year of bugging him to get back to racing I'm glad to see him taking the plunge!

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

    Announcing the January Lineup for S.N.A.I.L. SPEC Racing

    The Drivers List has been updated with driver movement for the month of January.

    To all the S.N.A.I.L.s that drive week after week, Thank You! Look at all the One and Two Year trophies on our drivers list :D

    There's no clear cut formula for getting promoted or relegated. And this go around was ground breaking as we've gone to 6 Divisions. If we've made a mistake placing anyone WE WILL ACT QUICKLY to rectify the issue :tup:

    We take into account a number of factors to determine candidates for promotion and relegation. Once we've identified the drivers, we analyze the data at our disposal and make sure the people being moved fit into the Division they're being moved to. Then we pull the trigger :dopey:

    Some of the criteria for being ELIGIBLE to be moved are:

    1. Points for the month
    2. How many drivers are in each division.
    3. Race pace
    4. Individual Lap Times
    5. How you compare to other racers in your division and the division you're a candidate for.
    6. Number of times you've raced that month.
    7. How cleanly you've raced this past month.

    Why do we do this?

    1. To get you involved in races you will be racing in, not just putting in laps.
    2. To incent you to improve your driving and racecraft.
    3. To give you something to strive for.
    4. To make it possible for you to have fun playing GT6.
    5. Give the servers a break.

    We want you to be in good, close, clean racing :tup:

    If you have any questions or concerns about promotion or relegation, feel free to pm me. I'd be more than happy to talk to you about it.

    Cheers and good racing all!

    @fastfox400 It would only be up for so long, as everyone will be downloading the new update for the new Red Bull events. I know I will.

    Now is the time for all good S.N.A.I.L.s to come to the aid of their league.

    With 7 divisions our infrastructure will be severely tested. Ask yourself, What can I do to help OUR league?

    @kcheeb @Skills if you need a race director for div. 6, I might be willing to step up. :)
