    Have you guys ever tried spec racing but with 2 cars to choose from? For instance two cars that are classic competitors and more or less the same car. Say WRX vs EVO or Camaro vs Mustang, 458 Italia vs LFA. Not trying to stir the pot, just thought I'd share a vision with you all. Maybe an alternate race for each div that is optional and bragging rights only so it doesn't have to take up more time if you don't want.

    I remember we did something a few years ago in GT5. We put the faster drivers in a slightly slower car. With GT5 draft, they could keep up, but never pass. It was lots of fun and kept the cars clumped together without the use of Boost.

    If any muscle car it should be the Challenger. It is the only true retro muscle car.

    Speaking of this new "Playseat Challenge", our third GranStrand Challenge is complete and I'll be working on the list of finalists and their number of picks soon.

    As for how we'll determine the winner, we'll be using @GumballCGT fast lap during a race again. This time, it'll be at Silverstone later this month. :)

    Thanks for making your prize selections so quickly!

    The May 11th lineup has been posted!! :gtpflag:

    Let's get some banner pictures so that @Troggy has some options to choose from. He said he can get the banners done early this week, so let's make the most of it. :)

    For the past few months nobody has uploaded replays
    For D1 We need someone to do it in D1 also we need
    Someone that could be backup for points if fizzer isn't
    Racing with us, on Sunday I had to Run the whole show
    Host, save replays, take votes, and who got poles
    I don't mind helping out I just can't upload replays
    Cause my laptops messed up

    I certainly appreciate you stepping up and handling all the D1 stuff @dgaf95integra . Since D1 rarely submits IRs we don't usually need their replays, so haven't needed them very often. D1 has IRs filed this week, so, we need them.

    Maybe he was just "planting a seed" for many to consider. We raced that combo in GT-5, if memory serves.
    (Memory has not been speaking to me lately .... wonder if I have offended it, or something)

    @Skye Hellums,
    Thanks for your interest!
    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.


    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 see it now (sorry, didn't check until this morning).

    Question, however. If someone disconnects after completing the qualifier but before the start of a race, do they get 0 points or last place points?
    I ask because this happened to be on Round 3, Race 1... it's not a big deal as it was a pretty full room so last place points changes nothing... but curious because I remember it being discussed in our room that night.

    As long as you start the qualifier, you receive points. The tricky part is when multiple people disconnect during qualifying and you have to remember who disco'd first.

    I can help with D1 replays and be back-up for points starting this Sunday, I wasn't very "snaily" this Sunday and didn't save the replays.
