    I'm so old, I dated a girl in a red white and blue mini skirt. :dopey:. No really, I was born in 2002, so far this year.





    Who really cares?

    I rather enjoyed the Indy combo, sorry to see go. Only ran mid pack most of the time but it was a good challenge in learning car control. Once I got it figured out it had a nice flow to it
    Problem is there's never enough time to learn the difficult combos before they booted.

    Just a quick heads up that Sunday night was the last week of the April season. If you were really that far off the pace, you'll be relegated to D2 for the May season (which starts this Sunday night).

    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on April 27, 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 remember that clean racing is not only your right, it's also your responsibility and something that we all need to be accountable for. :tup:

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 3 - Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 base model '13 (Race Medium tires) at Road Course - Indy (7 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @ExoSphere64 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 - Toyota 2000GT '67 (Sport Hard tires) at Circuito di Roma (7 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @dcallnight gets Prize B, he has the option to "freeze" the car or the track, or he can give 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 @dabneyd 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 $1,000,000
    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.

    Agreed. I love the more slippery combos. While they're much more frustrating when you're doing it wrong, I think it's much more satisfying when you're doing it right, as opposed to combos like the BRZ/Grand Valley and Roadster/Tsukuba, where there's so much grip you can pretty much do anything somewhat safely.

    Even though the BRZ has a lot of grip, I still seem to find myself spinning on exit points. Throttle control is king but there is still chance for failure. :tup:

    aliengamer25 is still not eligible for prizes as he has not been through promotion and relegation. Next in line would be BTB9195 but he is also ineligible for the same reason. This means that the third prize winner would be dabneyd.

    In addition to this, dcallnight has already won prize "C" this month (Apr. 6) so he would be locked into prize "B" this time around.

    Okay, I've corrected that. Thanks for the heads up.

    In the past, we've "reset" the month once the last league night of the season was completed. Therefore, the first new combos of the season would also be the first prize selections of month. Let me know if you'd like to adjust it so that the "reset" doesn't happen until after the first races of the season are completed. It's your call.

    True, but if that is satisfying only for a minority, then it really is not satisfying to the majority.

    I am not a strict populist, but I am not a proponent of strictly elitist, slippery/sadistic/unclean (combos) either.

    A little of this, a bit of that, and a shouty car for some excellent noise. Good combos.

    Having three of a kind - All shouty and slidy cars - are painfully loud. And quite messy. And expensive.

    You may disagree, but.. You would be wrong.

    (Dime-store Jeremy Clarkson impression now over, move tongue out of cheek, I return to my natural state at this time of night - sleep).

    PS - Congrats to the winners, and racers. See y'all next week.

    Sure. I mean, I get it. Lots of people like the grippy cars. We vote, and that's why those combos tend to stay. I'm just stating my personal preference, that's all :)

    With the advent of not allowing a driver to win prizes until they have gone through promotion and relegation (at the end of the season) I think to keep it consistent, we should reset the prizes won for the month at the same time. After all, the prize was won in the same season.

    I had forgotten that we had done it that way before. It hasn't come up since we instituted the change for new drivers having to go through p and r.

    @zer05ive said it was my call on when to reset multiple winners and I made it. I'm pretty sure we are good to go with exo, dcall, and dabneyd as 1,2, and 3 with dcall locked in to prize B.

    I think the organizer is good to go again this month.

    In light of Dragonwhisky giving the all clear.

    @dabneyd is up first with prize "C". Would you like to freeze the Toyota 2000Gt or Rome (forward).

    Edit: ninja'd by a prize winner. That has got to be a first.

    @ExoSphere64 is clear to make his prize "A" selection as well.

    Once dabneyd has chosen which part to freeze, @dcallnight is clear to choose the other part of that combo.

    Edit: dcallnight, choose a track for the 2000GT.

    I am completely bewildered, shocked, excited and nervous all at the same time. I have never been in the position to pick a prize before. Sometimes the privateer can surprise you! I know I won't be able to please everyone but I tried to put a combination together that had a little something for everyone. Given the new price cap, it is affordable for those that don't have a large bank roll. It is a little slow but if not respected it will bite. It is a little understeery and oversteery at the same time. It will require proper throttle control. It has grip in some areas and is a little loosey-goosey in others. It has not been used before and should make for some nice pictures. Be gentle as this is my first time!
