    @nascarfan1400,
    Thanks for your interest!
    We would love to have you in the league. While the rules don't expressly prohibit you from not showing up every week, once you get the rush from racing you'll be hard pressed to find reasons to keep you from attending every Sunday night! 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:

    You don't have to show up every week, but we provide lots of incentives and prizes for those that do. For example, someone who is consistent about racing in the March and April seasons will be winning a GranStand wheel stand!! who is consistent about racing on Sunday nights. Also, I noticed that you don't have a Premium membership so you should consider going for this prize from @Azure Flare :)

    You've got the right idea ;)

    Please also note that you'll need to get the time trial done asap if you want to be able to join tomorrow night's races. :tup:

    @rob1nh000d I got into the Race of Champions room to observe and what I observed was jaw dropping, I've been reading on this thread all your inquiries of the wheel, game settings and such in order too improve your own race ability and knowledge!
    I was so disappointed when after watching you battle for the lead then extend that lead to the point that no one could have caught you, only to get Disconnected close to the end of the race!

    Then after all the racing was over and we got tougher, at Spa and especially apricot hill, you got even better!

    You are a very rare "quick learner" and you will go far!

    When skills sends out the weekly notifications the below text is included;
    That algorithm is the basis for the calculations done in the director's doc. All I need is a median lap time, from one of the middle divisions, 3, 4 or 5, convert it to seconds and divide 660 by the lap time. Once I know that, the race laps get entered and the brooms take it from there to spit out the qualifying session time.

    @kcheeb linked me a post he made several moons ago that shows race laps against lap times. If I can find it I'll link it.

    Edit: corrected incorrect statement having to do with which to divide by which.

    BORING!

    Besides, this thread does have quite a lot of off-topic stuff anyway. But at least I see better quality posts here than the rest of the GT section.

    Hopefully I can jump on tonight to get a little practice in before the April season! If all things go according to plan, I'll make all the races and contend for the Overall, and maybe have a shot at the Champion of Champions! :lol:

    Here's to hoping, Cheers! :cheers:

    Very generous of you to say so. Thanks very much @chatva. I have since discovered that part of my success in that race was due to the gallant efforts of @singlepaddy. He deserves some of that jaw drop.

    I just looked for it @Wolfsatz, I thought I'd put helping you before going and getting some very generous help from @K1utch in his just opened room, but then when I looked in my gallery I realized that I don't have that replay because I was disconnected during that race. Oh ya.:dunce:
