    Promotion and Relegation Announcement

    P and R will be done by Saturday. If you have submitted a time trial and have not received your division placement yet, this will be done with promotion and relegation. This means any new driver who submits a time trial this week will be waiting until Saturday to find out what division they are placed in. This also means that division movement will be announced on Saturday.

    It is a time consuming and labor intensive process that involves trying to contact 40+ drivers and balance right around 100 drivers in 8 divisions.

    I think this is another PD bug; I know of others that has happened to. My car was fully revving and did not go anywhere until the hit. This happened to me a couple other times during practice.

    Also, the other bug is when you have no HUD at all, no speedo, gauges or anything, you can drive it, but you are doing everything by sound which is a little harder (easy to mis-shift).

    There was a bug in the summary sheet showing incorrect votes for all of D4, it has been corrected. It does not change the outcome of the voting last night. Thanks for letting me know :tup:

    Not sure if this has been answered yet hooker. This tab of the results doc has links to information about S.N.A.I.L. The sheet you're looking for is linked there, Driver Information.

    To answer your question directly, here's a link to the Driver Information sheet.

    Good lord almighty! That is a lot of information in that document. I can't imagine how long that took to set up. You really know your excel stuff.

    The no hud one can usually be fixed with a quick double tap of the start button.
    May not be the reason, but I have not seen this one since I changed the color of my hud either.

    Happened to me last night. I started frantically switching through the view modes and thankfully it came on before the first brake zone.

    Google docs does that from time to time. It may have something to do with the f:censored:ton of data we keep and the insanely complex formulas and things we have those sheets doing. We almost always hit the limits, google docs imposes on spreadsheets, by the end of a season.

    When it does that, close the tab and reopen the sheet. Usually works. Usually.

    Do you get points if you are not on the track at the end of the race?

    You get points for starting the race. If you don't finish, you get last place points.

    I have another question.The other week at Cape ring I was in 8th place and with all the disconnection in the final lap I ended up in 3rd place.... Am I getting 3rd place points?

    Thanks dab.

    If it's a multiple disconnect, you would go with the running order at the time of the disconnect for those drivers assuming the rest of the field was able to finish the race. If no driver was able to finish the race there shouldn't be any results posted for that race.

    Basically, to answer your question, I would need to see a replay of the race.

    Thank you Coach each week for your work in posting the pictures, statistics from the division. I didn't want to rush a pass at the BMW Apricot hill race, Only pass when i know it will be as clean as possible.

    I have taken this coming weekend off to attend my son's exhibition soccer game. First time 11 v 11 and I didn't want to miss it. Anyhow, this will give me plenty of time to work on the driver list Saturday night and Sunday morning.

    Edit:
    Are you kidding me? We can turn off the lines in TT's but not online? :banghead:

    To be honest I would rather do "race together" instead of solo in quali, it is really distracting to have sperm-like (I couldn't think of a better description/ synonym) things dancing around you. Not to mention when you start from the back, all the opaque names tags would block your vision as they crowd together. What's your take on this guys?

    My take is to qualify alone, remembering to disable the names, add more time to the qualifying session and have staggered starts like we did in GT5. We'll still race alone and the 'update' from PD will be negated if we space ourselves as if the lines were actual cars.
    Or status quo. Either way it is better than GT5.

    I've lately just been letting everyone run a good bit ahead before I go in qualifying - because of how distracting this is. Even if it means I get in one less lap... At least I can see where I'm going.

    I don't like the lines, however the current way to qualify saves a lot of time on Sunday night vs the old way we did it, plus we don't need to work about slipstream effect.

    And the lines can give you an indication when someone is out of bounds.

    The problem with this is that then this becomes another race and qualifying etiquette is seldom respected.

    you come behind a slower racer, but he does not concede the pass, blocks you , etc. I prefer lines; plus you can turn off the names off.

    How are the lines different from actual cars? cars also block your view, but you cannot go over them as you can with lines.

    Last night was the first time I think I have ever finished a Sunday night on time. A lot of that is due to the quicker shorter qualifying sessions.

It has been my pleasure to race with you in d5 and im sure you will be a welcome addition to all the d4 guys next season. Race Hard, Race Clean, Race Snail! :cheers:
