    I sent out my PM to the winners at 10 am yesterday, then revised the info around 6pm due to a wayward moustache curl obscuring my view of the results sheet, causing a Wild Hair moment ... Or was it Hare Brained moment?... Either way...

    Prize A Deadline: 6pm today, Wednesday, posted in thread or @criscr forfeits his prize - again. Combo suggestions are also due by this same deadline. Voting on suggestions will begin immediately following the deadline. Time for voting is TBD, probably until noon EST Thursday so West Coasters have a chance to respond Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

    It would be great if there was some way for a Google Doc or survey thingy could be used to collect suggestions or take votes on combos, but I am unfamiliar with how to pull that off (hint, hint!).

    Maybe even a Lotus '96 Elise Racecar? Those have held up pretty well in the past. Or that RM'd Cappucino? Truthfully, the R8 Gordini or the Hudson are pretty fun as well, but the Hudson is over the credit limit at the moment - and it shines at Toscana, back on the dirt where it began. The Rocket seems cool as well.

    Ultimately, I am happy that the winner can choose any car under 100,000, even karts, and not just the "Premium" and 10 guest selections. That is, if a selection is made. A lot more options to be had.

    So does that mean if a selection is not made, a vote will be taken to determine the third combination?

    I thought D3 members choose the options and the rest of the league votes. Or vice versa?

    Sorry I am new to snail and I have a question. With SFCjoeMe being DQ'd will the points remane the same or will everybody get moved up in terms of points? Example: Who ever finished 2nd will now get 1st place points.

    Back in 1984 (probably before alot of you guys were born) I was on a vacation in Canada and during it I went along to a round of the World Sportscar Championship being held in Mosport Park. I took a few shots and all these years later this photo has a relevance to this league I've just joined. The red car, a Cosworth powered Lyncar MS83, was driven by none other than S.N.A.I.L sponsor Allen Berg.

    He shared the drive with a Greek driver, Costas Los, and here he is about to be swallowed up by the No. 3 Rothmans Porsche 956 driven by Vern Schuppan and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.

    I suggest the rocket at brands hatch since it seemed really popular when fastfox picked it but the credit limit wasn't high enough.

    I will second the rocket at brands hatch. Not attached to the track, but I love that car and it's a good pairing.

    What he said. I though the in the advent that someone won a prize a second time, the division chose the next combo, but in this case, d3 picked and the league voted on whatever pick? or is that backwards?

    There is if you're okay with typing the car choice in. It wouldn't take 10 minutes to put together. In the mean time here's a list of the premium cars we haven't raced that are less than $100,000.

    The list of cars I have only has the Premiums from GT5, the Standards we raced in GT5 and anything we've raced in GT6. I couldn't find a list of all the GT6 cars that was easily importable into a format I could use. If anyone knows where one is or has one, let me know I'd love to have it :D

    Here is a list of all 764 cars that cost less than 100,000

    http://www.kudosprime.com/gt6/carlist.php?max_price=100000

    Lets see an interesting pick.

    If the Rocket is going to be a choice make sure it is on a track where it does not bounce of the rev limiter down the straights please.

    Kcheeb, I think it is fair to have them type it. Hopefully the user will take the time to be accurate so it will be a valid entry.

    I do not know how importable the data from kudosprime is, jobyone, but that is where I review cars, prices, etc.

    The one arm guy is a decade later, from Def Leppard.

    You guys are both correct. The only difference between this scenario and the two-time prize winner scenario is that the rest of the league votes on the suggestions instead of the prize winner just picking one.

    @Handlebar I wouldn't worry too much about a google doc unless you're really keen on using one. History has shown that these type of votes aren't usually close and can just be eye-balled to find a winner. Also, having the votes posted on the thread let's the skimmers know that there's a vote going on and that they should participate.

    I thought Def Leppard was the one that did 'Freebird' and died in a plane crash.

    Is the 17 in your name your age as well? You could benefit greatly from a rock history education class if such a thing existed. I'm sure there's a college somewhere that offers it.

    Judging by some of the replies above, Jack Black could enrol a few more for his School of Rock! :lol:

    @kcheeb Nice to hear the man himself liked the pic.

    I'm going to assume he's messing with us here. But if any universities are looking for someone to teach a rock history class, I will gladly submit my resume :)
