    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on March 30, 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.

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 3 - Renault Sport Megane Trophy Base Model '11 (Racing Hard tires) at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (4 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @ptslopoke 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 - Honda Integra Type R (DC5) Touring Car '04 (Race Hard tires) at Deep Forest Raceway (8 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @AG07WRXTR gets Prize B, he has the option to "freeze" the car or the track, or he can that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the "freeze" away, then he gets to decide what car or track replaces the part of the combo that is left unfrozen by the Prize C winner.

    Prize C goes to @racefan78 so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

    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.

    I don't feel like we "killed off" the eliminated combo, just "parted ways" with it. It was great fun, but it's time came.

    RIP Megane Trophy @ Spa.

    For a suggestion for Prize B freeze the track and replace the Integra Type R TC with the Audi R8 V10, the GTP WRS will be running that car in a TT event.

    I'd like to race it.

    I think I just had the most memorable race I have had since I joined Snail in January. Round 1 Race 1, it started off with a huge battle in Qualifying between myself and @gmraces, gm had the pole at 1:18.499 IIRC until I stole it with a 1:18.264 on the final lap of qualifying.

    The race only turned out even hotter. It was a dogfight throughout lap 1 and gm came back with the help of a draft on the front straight and we went side by side from turn 1 all the way to the apex before the first tunnel. Something happened and I ghosted allowing gm to take the lead.

    I was on his tail for 2 laps nose to tail until the slip stream took away some of my front downforce, I got on the grass twice in the final 2 corners which dropped me back 1.5 or so secs. After that it was a heads down and punch in fast laps. The biggest factor that helped me was tire management.

    I noticed gm was smoking his tires way more than I did and that gave me hope that towards the end of the race he will wear them down to a point where it will affect his lap times. Unsurprisingly he ran wide a few times and missed the apex as I continued to click in low 1:18s. As a result I caught up and made the pass at the beginning of the final lap drafting pass gm on the front straight into turn 1, but my tires started going as well and I had to drop my pace slightly as well which affected my rhythm coming out of the final corner I got caught out by the degrading tires and gm took opportunity to line up alongside me for the drag to the finish line.

    It ended as a photo finish with me only 0.033 ahead of gm. A very sweet comeback I have to say.

    It was apparent from my point of view that gm realized the tire management game in race 2 and got out in front early in the race to pull a gap on me while maintaining his tires, there wasn't much I could do to close in even with a 1:18.091, a hit to the side of the mountain late in the race meant all hope was lost at that point. Congrats to @gmraces on the win. Well executed.

    The rest of the night was tight between us still, gm took pole for round 2 and 3 which I should be ashamed of not being able to run at my best form in quali. But overall a very tough and exciting night. Must not let my guard down from here on!

    Ditto here. Poor performance at Apricot Hill.
    I will miss the Megane @ Spa greatly.

    @zer05ive
    I think we are missing a bridge word here. perhaps pass? It makes it a little confusing the way its worded now.

    or he can pass that option to the Prize C winner. If he gives the "freeze" away....

    I'm thinking we need to go back to friends only rooms. We kept having people pop in and out during the race. That can't be good for lag spikes etc.

    A bit disappointed with the amount of errors i made last night, couldnt maintain focus. That being said, i think this 2nd week with you guys went better for me than the 1st. Will be trying my hardest still to adapt to the variety of cars ran(used to gt500 only). You are a very intense group of people once on the track, im loving it.

    Div-6 went so smoothly last night - we were done in 2 hours. 30 mins earlier than the usual finish times have been.
    @Azure Flare deserves a lot of credit for keeping the room moving along - without a lot of delay between events.
    Of course, it was much easier without several disconnects to deal with - don't think we had one disconnect all evening.
    Good work - Directors, Statisticians and Drivers ........ Enjoyable evening with yawl.

    @hooker4 must have had ONE BIG NIGHT ......... 90 pts out of a possible 100?
    Big Slap on the Back (and, No, not with a fish). "Movin' on Up" as the saying goes?
    Excellent work, Hooker - your hard work and persistence is paying off.

    Last night was quite enjoyable. All the Div-7 races had good competitive driving in them.
    I noticed that my cars seemed to slow up intermittently, wasn't sure if I was getting penalized for some unknown reason, but did confirm after the night's events that my brake potentiometer was getting noisy again.
    I could have been faster!

    I ordered a Hall sensor that could be a possible replacement for the pots.

    Looking forward to more competitive realistic simracing.

    We ran the R8 v10 at trial mountain in November 2012. It was one and done with most people struggling to keep it pointed straight any time they hit a bump. Maybe it would be easier to control in GT 6 but from my experience the MR cars are harder to control now.

    I had a great time in the West Coast division last night. I missed the first two races which I was feeling really strong about. Not that I would have kept up with @Neovre and @gmraces! The second combo went great for me with no unforced errors and two strong 4th places. Keeping to within 6 seconds or so from the leader is a good result for me. Congrats on @VrapPlus on the win in the second BMW race. Combo 3 is best forgotten. I will not miss that combo.

    We had 8 west coast racers and a good number of guests and no real connection issues I saw. Thanks the @RevStar-9 for hosting and neo for keeping score. See you all next week.
