    Sorry about the dc at Ascari. I remember you and I got of to a good start 1st and 2nd I believe after the first chicane. I felt like I was holding off a heard of buzzing bees for you while you set sail. I knew we're going to finish well so it sucks you got dc'd.
    Also we were both doing well at Spa. I eventually got overwhelmed by the faster guys though. It was a humbling and learning experience all at the same time.
    Good luck to you in the new division, you deserve to step up.
    GO GET EM!!!!

    If he is put in D6, he'll have to put up my BS. That should be enough encouragement to keep moving up the ladder.

    Congrats to @martin20az on being the March (and inaugural) Champion of Champions!! :cheers:

    Also, congrats to everyone who was able to participate in this epic event! Getting an invite to the ROC now seems to be an extra incentive and reward for being a division champion. :tup:

    And last but not least, I want to give HUGE props to @Wolfsatz for conceptualizing and directing this epic event! Way to go!! :bowdown:

    I love the way you said 'set sail'! Thank you very much. You must have held them off gallantly, because I only noticed one getting closer after the first two laps, and one, maybe two after the next two laps. Sorry the bees got to you, maybe I should have found a way that we could have held them off together. I have heard of some of the top level drivers doing such things together. Maybe we can both get to that level, and GET EM. :)

    True :) and I still have to give you guys the credit for very funny and creative associations.

    Not to bring any glory to me, but did you guys catch the "big Balls" AC/DC reply a few days ago? I know you did @BayouSimDrifter. It awesome the way a creative association can transcend words and go right to the heart of the matter with a topping of class and kick ass!

    -I have an announcement-

    In addition to the winner of the GranStand Challenge, I will award the person who scores the most points in the April season a Premium membership! I have already explained what a 1-year membership (you can't buy lifetime anymore) will get you here.

    The only rule that I have is that those who are already premium members are ineligible.

    To encourage everyone to participate, points from Sunday nights races will be totaled up at the end of the April season and the winner will receive their prize within a few days (or if someone is willing to keep track of the numbers and tells me who gets it, that would be appreciated).

    You tried Zero. You tried. I think several people sit up in the morning refreshing the page, waiting for someone to blink. Then all hell breaks loose :D

    Banners will probably be done by tonight. I'm not sure that I saw any post-practice pictures, so if you posted pictures, do you mind quoting them for me?(I'll be at work all day so I won't be able to easily search.

    You forgot that I am practically nocturnal now, so I saw it like it was normal to me.

    @Meshuslayv,
    Thanks for your interest! If you hurry and run your time trial you can start the new season tomorrow.
    We would love to have you in the league. Here's what you need to know and do in order to join:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the S.N.A.I.L. OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide.
    Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You take the S.N.A.I.L. OLR and Racecraft Test

    2. You run the Time Trial and submit your information by 23:59 EST on Saturday night if you want to race this Sunday.

    3. @JLBowler PM's you with your assigned Division that we feel will give you the closest competition. You will be added to the drivers list.

    4. The Race Director or Primary Host from the corresponding SNAIL Division will send you a PSN friend request. Sunday night you will need to sort the online lobbies by friends and join the lobby named 'snailracing.org Division_(x) based off your Division placement from JLBowler. That lobby will be where you race Sunday.

    5. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    The original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread.

    If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.
    To avoid duplication, the currently claimed combinations can be found here.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.

    Welcome to S.N.A.I.L. :cheers:

    I said new driver placements and promotion and relegation would all be done on Saturday. Saturday just started and it will be done by the time the day is over for me. Please notice what time zone I'm in and take that into consideration when I say what day something will be done.

    @speer9892003 I've heard of 1:32s being posted, but I can't drive it worth anything, so "eventually" is my PB.
