    Thanks to you both for helping getting the D8 scores entered. The elimination vote was quite decisive so I'm going to go ahead and post the results even without knowing how D8 voted. In fact, even if every driver in D8 voted to eliminate the same combo, it would not affect the vote.

    NOTE: I would still like the D8 votes entered eventually though (for recording and data purposes)

    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on March 16, 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 3 - Red Bull X2014 Junior (Racing Medium tires) at Autumn Ring (9 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Xradkins 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 - Renault Sport Clio V6 24V '00 (Sports Hard tires) at Ascari Full Track (4 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @fizzer gets Prize B, he gets to either steal Prize C and "freeze" either the car or the track, or he can wait to see which part of the combo the Prize C winner "freezes" and the decide what car or track replaces the unfrozen part of the combo.

    Prize C goes to @Rockhound18 so he gets to "freeze" either the car or the track of the combo that received the second most elimination votes.

    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 $500,000
    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.

    Thanks! I'll update the results post. I needed to make some changes anyways since @deaconblues82 doesn't qualify for prizes yet (because of this rule).

    HELP please. What does 'Steal prize C' mean in prize B ? Never mind I thinks I got it. I will keep Prize B and wait.

    Just means you can wait and see what Prize C will do with a freeze play or go ahead and make a Prize B pick.

    Don't get to excited yet, in any event. The prize A candidate is not eligible and zer0 is checking who is next in line and their eligibility.

    D2 data has been entered to the Results Doc for 3/16/14

    Autumn Ring.jpg
    Pole Lap Honors:
    Round 1 : @K1utch 2:25.355
    Round 2 : @K1utch 2:25.502
    Round 3 : @K1utch 1:07.382

    Fast Lap honors:
    Round 1 Race 1 : @K1utch 2:24.347
    Round 1 Race 2 : @K1utch 2:25.669

    Round 2 Race 1 : @K1utch 2:24.638
    Round 2 Race 2 : @K1utch 2:25.301

    Round 3 Race 1 : @K1utch 1:07.283
    Round 3 Race 2 : @ptslopoke 1:08.018


    There's no doubt that @K1utch is fast as the times above clearly show. Missing out to @ptslopoke in only 1 of the 6 races for fastest lap and taking all 3 poles. Well done! As we all know being fast is one thing but that's only part of the challenge. Being consistent throughout the night takes practice and patience and this is something that only through "seat time" can one really begin to master. It was a close battle but in the end @K1utch squeaked out the night over @ptslopoke by 1 point! Well done to both of you!

    Congrats to @K1utch for taking the preliminary win for the night! :tup:

    Full data set can be found here.

    Tales From the Sixth Division

    big-data-kitty.jpg


    Last night was a terrific amount of fun! Our division did not suffer from any real issues. For once. Maybe things are starting to settle down. We clicked off every round in a very smooth fashion and even wrapping up just a little early. @Azure Flare ran the room very nicely! Excellent host. Thank you so much!

    All of the combinations were really fun. Yes, even Ascari. Maybe it is because Ascari is a very new track to me. Once you start to unlock its secrets, there is a great flow to the track. I hope it hangs around for awhile. With a faster, looser car. Spa? It has been said many times that Spa is awesome no matter what you drive there and I have to agree. The Megane was exceptionally fun to drive. Maybe I need to see how it fairs at Ascari! Although I enjoyed the sheer speed with the Red Bull, it is just a little cartoonish for my tastes.

    All things considered, it was a fantastic night of racing. I managed to stay in the thick of things for a third week in a row. There were some battles that really got the sweat going. I swear I am going to figure out how to let a little air out of @TEX36 's tires. Holy crap is he fast! At one point I started to feel a little sick with him hunting me. It is hard enough to have a faster driver behind you but Tex weaves and bobs quite a bit. On the educational side of it it is pretty cool to watch him try several different lines to get by in a clean fashion. A huge thanks to all of D6 for another exciting night!!

    Ahh roundabouts. I remember asking my driving instructor here about why he never picked any routes with any on during the practices and the reply was "no point, you know how to drive them far better than we do" :lol:

    Oops, you're right. My bad. :ouch:

    Apologies again. I passed out on the couch and I guess my wife didn't wake me up because she knew how tired I was. Thanks for the PM. The results post has been corrected.

    Also, thanks to @JLBowler for giving me a heads up on the ineligible prize winner earlier this evening, which of course I didn't see until later because I'm way behind on my PM's. :dunce:

    If I may just clarify this a bit.. The Prize B winner can't wait to see what Prize C will do with freeze play before choosing which prize to pick. He can either choose to accept Prize C's freeze no matter what or he can choose to steal Prize C instead (and thus effectively swap the power of the Prize B and Prize C winners). I'll work on rewording prize descriptions to make them less confusing. I'd probably start by removing the description of Prize C from the Prize B text, and just state the option to steal Prize C there (while keeping the "freeze" description/link under Price C only).

    So @Xradkins , given the clarification, do you still choose to keep prize B?

    I'll reveal my price C choice once you confirm (cards close to chest, check). Haha, I like the dynamic of the new prize structure, spices up the process a bit I think.

    Actually, @Xradkins has prize A, since @deaconblues82 isn't eligible yet. @fizzer, you have the B and @Rockhound18 has the C. So, @fizzer you're waiting for @Rockhound18.
