    I've decided there aren't enough walls of pictures in this thread, so I've decided to begin randomly adding them.
    I will tentatively refer to them as Mirado's Awesome D7 Recaps. Hope you enjoy it, with out further ado...

    [​IMG]
    The night starts out smoothly as @goofytyler takes the opening pole.

    [​IMG]
    Things are heating up by lap 6 as @vitorf_mattos manages to hold his position from my relentless pressure.
    That's @goofytyler back there keeping up with ease, playing patient.

    [​IMG]
    After the most ill timed disco in history, it's me and goofy for 1 more lap from here. Truly a magnificent race from start to finish from everyone! :cheers:

    [​IMG]
    In the second race at Silverstone a close battle for 3rd erupts between @dcallnight @ChaddingtonB and @robertomglolz

    [​IMG]
    Meanwhile up at the front we have @racingchamp30 and @singlepaddy doing their best to put some space between the field and themselves as they fight for 1st.

    [​IMG]
    Tight action all over the course.

    [​IMG]
    Everyone is pushing hard as the laps wind down.

    [​IMG]
    At the end @singlepaddy is just too fast for @racingchamp30 to get around.

    [​IMG]
    I'm pretty sure that's @ChaddingtonB @racingchamp30 and @singlepaddy battling for third in the second Fuji race.

    [​IMG]
    Ultimately @goofytyler just had to cruise and enjoy the views, as he won both races at Fuji this week.

    [​IMG]
    I put some pressure on him once...once.

    [​IMG]
    That's enough Fuji for my taste, onto the Nurb. That's me and @racingchamp30 leading the field out of turn one. The background may look a little messy, but even though they all came out wide, there was no contact through turn 1.

    [​IMG]
    Later in the 1st race, @goofytyler is stalking @racingchamp30 They trade positions a few times, but racingchamp pulls out the first race.

    [​IMG]
    Here's @robertomglolz and @goofytyler battling for 3rd with a huge pack right on their heels.

    [​IMG]
    That's @goofytyler leading a train around the hairpin that includes @RebelYeller73, @covan2306, myself, @lane, @Rockhound18, @robertomglolz, and @racingchamp30.

    [​IMG]
    Here is @covan2306 making a move on @robertomglolz

    [​IMG]
    This is @Rockhound18 trying to hold off @robertomglolz for the final podium spot of the night.

    All in all a great night of racing, I hope you all enjoyed our little journey here.

    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on February 23, 2014

    If you believe that another driver exhibited poor racecraft or is guilty of an S.N.A.I.L. OLR violation, please file a Racing Incident Report by 11pm Eastern / 8pm Pacific tonight. Be sure to follow the instructions precisely or your submission might not be addressed! If you're undecided on whether or not you should file an incident, please read this. Also keep in mind that an incident report isn't supposed to be an argument. Here are some good tips on how to make sure things stay civil and respectful. :tup:

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - Lotus Elise Race Car '96 (Racing Hard tires) at Fuji Speedway GT (6 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @goofytyler wins Prize A, they get to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - Volkswagen Golf IV GTI Touring Car '01 (Racing Hard tires) at Silverstone International Circuit (9 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @KTR5 gets Prize B, he gets to decide which part of the combo is replaced and what replaces it.

    Prize C goes to @dgaf95integra so he gets the tie-breaking vote if the elimination votes results in a tie (the prize winners' elimination votes are not counted under normal circumstances).

    Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your car and/or track selection until all racing complaints are filed and you are given the "all clear" to announce your selection. It's also important that you review our Car/Track History so that you can see a complete history of how many times we've raced each car and track (just scroll to the right of that tab). Please remember that originality is always appreciated. Therefore, picking cars and tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). Most importanty, make sure you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, the car should not hit its rev limiter at any point during the race (even in the draft).

    Car Selection Guidelines
    Dealership Cars - The maximum price for a selected car is now $250,000
    DLC Cars - Only DLC cars that are FREE and currently still available in the PlayStation Store can be selected.

    Track Selection Guidelines
    Any non-DLC track can be selected as long as a single lap with the car combo'd with it would not take more than five minutes to complete. For example, don't select anything that includes the Nurburgring's Nordschleife.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: 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 select the Amuse Superlegara for your car, post "Amuse Nismo 380 RS Superlagara". If you want to select Monza for a track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". This makes it much easier for the lineup to be updated accurately and also prevents confusing other league members as to which car or track you are selecting.

    I just checked. You're on the results sheet so I'm sure it's just an oversight.

    In 4 of the 5 league nights that i've completed without disconecitons in the past month and a half, I've scored exactly 64 points. Do you guys think it's a sign that I should change my number?

    You would be winning that bet, but the difference may not be as much as you think.

    Rnd 1 - 17
    Rnd 2 - 12
    Rnd 3 - 14

    Since getting that data taxed the last bit of energy in my one brain cell, I'm off to bed to let it rest. Catch up with you all tomorrow.

    Looks like someone fat fingered your entry in the Directors doc. It happened after I copied the sheets to the results doc, so I just corrected it based on the Results doc info.

    So I just finished Top Gear and it was insane because they had to run out of fuel in 65mpg cars with 23L of fuel 100 miles away from Chernobyl and Clarkson ran out of fuel very close to the reactor 4.

    Think we could get this car in GT6? I know the answer, but it would be fun to drive.

    It will not because NASA said they couldn't go the second time which is mandatory because you must go down and come back and the average speed is taken as the world record. And also 30 cars must be produced and only 29 where.

    Finally have some pictures from the D8 races. There was some tight (sometimes too much so) racing at Silverstone in the VW. It seemed like the Lotus and Fuji had a lot of alone racing, especially for @speer9892003. The GT-R at Nurburgring provided some good racing.

    @KTR5 leading @wvhellbilly and @speer9892003 into turn 1 at Silverstone

    Last week my prize suggestion transmitter was on backwards and was missing some aluminum foil so this week I have added more foil and made it slightly less chafing on my ears for better reception and added comfort.

    For my prize B suggestion this week...ditch the GTI RM in favor of my suggestions last week...something like a M3 CSL, Lutecia Trophy '00 or maybe the new Renault Trophy Base model '11.

    Prize A suggestions are iffy. It's so wide open now but people still want something slower but with less grip so we have some opportunities to pass. Ford RS200s at Motegi Full would be a really fun combo. Challenging car to drive on a challenging track.

    Zoltar has spoken....

    I will now cross my fingers and hope...
