    Practice Night with the boys! May I present you the most beautiful car in the world?
    [​IMG]

    Tight start and everyone fights for track position, or at least keep it!
    [​IMG]

    My Buddy Chatva and I trading some paint!

    [​IMG]

    And we go side by side going into Schumaher S... things can get ugly!
    [​IMG]

    ...but not like others that don't like to share the asphalt, we come out of it without any incidents...
    [​IMG]

    ...but here comes 104 degrees of Fever called K1utch
    [​IMG]

    ...chasing my tail off...
    [​IMG]

    From Texas with love White Knight Tex36! Awesome looking paint scheme!
    [​IMG]

    and keeping it tight and steady.
    [​IMG]

    White Knight Tex!
    [​IMG]

    ... and even with Fever and Flue he still kicks my bootie!
    [​IMG]

    I love those BBS wheels on the Merc!
    [​IMG]

    Another battle at turn 1
    [​IMG]

    If Tex is the White Knight... this should be the Dark Lord.

    I'll be on shortly. I'm so sucked into the new South Park game. I can't put it down.

    Sorry for the large post, but I was inspired by chuyler1's post to put Eau Rouge into even more perspectives. I snapped these photos during the 2010 Belgian Grand Prix after I made a pilgrimage of sorts to Spa-Francorchamps. Some of these shots were taken from an angle that you won't see any other Eau Rouge photos taken from. That's because there's a fence along the edge of that that section of the track that is completely blacked out to prevent potential loiterers (like me) from hanging around and stealing glimpses of the most famous corner in Formula 1. Well, while trying to cause as little property damage as possible, I was able to covertly manufacture a view for myself. Anyways, here are some of my favorite Eau Rouge shots for your viewing pleasure (and you can click on any of them to see the full image). I added some commentary as well to provide some context. Enjoy! :)

    [​IMG]
    Before the race, Lewis Hamilton (the eventual winner of the race) waves to the crowd. He's followed by Michael Schumacher, who returns to Spa after a three years hiatus from Formula 1. Perhaps not in his current state, but there's no doubt that Schumacher had some great memories at Spa.

    [​IMG]
    The Red Bull Boys: When this photo was snapped, Sebastian Vettel was just eleven weeks from becoming the youngest driver ever to win the World Drivers' Championship. He's followed by Mark Webber, who would do this to Fernando Alonso at that exact spot one year later.

    [​IMG]
    Lewis Hamilton followed by Robert Kubica (1st and 2nd when this photo was taken)

    [​IMG]
    Cool shot that gives us an idea of how blind the drivers are as they climb Eau Rouge to Raidillon. Kamui Kobayashi can see more of the helicopter is the sky than he can see of the track ahead of him.

    [​IMG]
    Kubica, Webber, and Massa's left front tire (2nd, 3rd, and 4th when this photo was taken)

    [​IMG]
    Vitaly Petrov (whose seat at Renault was basically purchased by current newsmaker Vladimir Putin) is followed by 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher.

    [​IMG]
    Sebastian Vettel chasing Jenson Button. He would eventually catch up, but then he takes him out..

    [​IMG]
    Felipe Massa in 4th position (5th if you count the helicopter)

    [​IMG]
    Robert Kubica on his way to the last podium spot

    [​IMG]
    Lewis Hamilton on his way to the win

    [​IMG]
    Pole-winner Mark Webber had a horrible start and dropped back to 6th. He would eventually take advantages of accidents (Vettel and Button) and a mistake in the pits (Kubica) to finish 2nd.

    [​IMG]
    Sebastian Vettel was able to continue on after destroying Button's car

    [​IMG]
    Lewis Hamilton after lapping Timo Glock

    [​IMG]
    The battle for second - Robert Kubica and Mark Webber

    [​IMG]
    Michael Schumacher followed by Adrian Sutil

    [​IMG]
    Mark Webber pulls away after putting Heikki Kovalainen a lap down

    [​IMG]
    Although they both had unfortunate races, the two drivers in this picture now have a combined six world championships

    [​IMG]
    Nico Rosberg tails Lucas di Grassi through Eau Rouge

    [​IMG]
    Rain is always a possibility at Spa, and Michael Schumacher is always a beast in the wet

    [​IMG]
    Safety Car followed by the eventual podium winners - Hamilton, Webber, and Kubica

    Here's the Team S.N.A.I.L. sheet of the results document.

    It lists everyone on Team S.N.A.I.L. and which role they are filling. If you scroll to the bottom, there's a description of most of the roles.

    If you scroll to the right of the role descriptions, some of them, replay uploader and data specialist have videos that show what needs to be done.

    I think I ran a 0.00 so far... Is that fast? ;)

    Should get some laps in Sunday pm after we clean our gear. Some great pics so far.

    Daughter outshot everyone except her brother. He outshot the instructor. :tup: :lol:

    Race Date - Sun Mar 02 2014
    Penalty Rate 60%
    Banner by dabneyd

    The general policy of the stewards, when it's plain that network latency, aka lag, is what caused an incident, regardless of who's car caused it, is to treat it as a mechanical failure, which technically it is, and to assess no penalties in those cases. When a driver is seen to be extraordinarily lagging, as was seen on more than one replay from last Sunday, and does nothing about it, or continues to race, with catastrophic latency and packet loss, present and visible to others, it violates the following rule of the SNAIL OLR;

    Continuing to drive with issues, such as what was witnessed by the stewards, especially if you've been made aware of such, is irresponsible and inconsiderate. To all SNAILs, sometimes, when a technical issue such as these is present, it's better to call it a night, make an effort to improve/repair the issue and try it again another day.

    The Polyphony Digital Gran Turismo 6 Replay Lottery appears to have turned off the lights and shut it's doors. Thankfully.

    Below are the results of the 20 incidents the stewards reviewed.

    Division 2 - 3 incidents on file

    • Round 1 - Race 1 - Level 1 - 2 points halved to 1 for self report.
    • Round 3 - Race 2 - Level 3 - 10 points halved to 5 for self report.

    Division 3 - 2 incidents on file

    Anyone know of a fix for the tuning prohibited message and the Red Bull Jr.? First practice race I ran I had to use C as A and B would not allow it. The next race it said C was additionally prohibited as well a few of my friends so we just drove the other 2 cars instead.

    Buy another, change the oil and stay out of the tuning sheets altogether.

    The deadline for a new driver to submit a time trial and be placed for racing this Sunday has passed. If you have submitted a time trial, you have received your placement message.

    Division hosts: Please be sure to check the drivers list as soon as @Oshawa-Joe updates it with the divisions for the March season and the new part time priority list. Get your friend requests taken care of early and remember that both the person sending the friend request and the person receiving the request must exit the game and return to the XMB before GT6 will properly recognize the friend request. In other words, don't expect to hop on five minutes before racing, accept a friend request, and be able to race. It won't happen. With the scheduled server down time this Sunday night, all rooms must start on time.

    If you are a part time driver, please take the time to send a friend request to the host one division above your division. If your room should fill up, you can run one division up for the night.

    You can't modify the car in any way, so if your car has wings 'n things on it, you can't race. However, having a cat as your co-driver is debatable.

    I'm also a bit behind it seems and we are in the same class. Seems I have some work to do.

    I believe in the 5-6 practices races I've done my best lap has been 2:28.5xx.

    You need to first check in the official color/number list and make sure those are not taken. If they are available, you can enter it into the Google docs questionnaire to make it official.

    Does anyone happen to have a working link for the 2013 GT Academy online rankings? The page that used to have it doesn't seem to load them for me. I've tried 4 different browser types (IE, Firefox, Chrome & Safari), but none seem to work. This is the page I'm trying to load. Thanks.

    I was able to play iRacing on a crappy, run of the mill graphics card, and 2 gigs ram. I've since come a lot further then that though. But the requirements aren't to bad. You going to build your own system? If so, add an extra sound card to it too. The extra 35 bucks that will cost will be well worth it when you want to add some tactile feedback.
