    Shouldn't take more than about 1.5 hours. No qualifying session so manual grid the first race and reverse grid from there. Barring any delays with connections or other burps and farts.

    Well... I chose to pass on the freeze thinking the track would be frozen based on what I have skimmed over in the thread. I was going to choose the classic Superbird. BUT, I have to choose a track instead, lol.
    Soooo, the new track is Fuji F. I chose it due to the room for cars to run side by side and a lot of opportunities to overtake without much risk.
    Let the "comments" fly. I may have deflected some bullets @LLOYDZELITE69 .... lol.

    Considering the fact that we gonna race the same annoying-idle sound-too much grip and down force-crappy car-that some Canadian champ decided to freeze-against any racional line of thinking-and now he has everyone trolling him-well deserved, I think the track is definitely a wise choice ;)

    Sure!

    Once you win, you make your choice and select... A different SuperGT car, or even something new.

    Easy peasy.

    Aww now come on...one car is GT500 and the other is GT300. We are talking completely different cars here...am I right? Am I? Maybe?

    And then the talk of Vision cars...all the cars in GT6 and we have resorted to fantasy cars?

    Ok...calm it down...no whining here...I have never won a prize so it's just a little frustration...it'll pass.

    As much as I would love to attend, I don't know if I will be home in time, so I will have to scratch so that I don't ended up taking a place from someone who could make it

    I suggest a thing called "Special Week" and that week there will only be a prize b winner that will only be able to choose a track.
    The car would be taken from a list of cars that never made a snail event and voted by the division of the prize a winner.
    Obviously no one will agree:banghead:

    Or special week where you vote on favorite combo, the favorite stays, other two are completely gone, the past months division champ for each division makes makes a suggestion to be voted on by all, the third combo is chosen by the previous weeks highest scoring driver, he or she may pick any track they would like, but the car must be one that has not been used in snail before

    Congratulations to nmcp1 on the overall night win and clinching the season Championship. Once again, six different drivers rose to the top step, in another close night of racing, with our best attendance in several weeks. We had a couple of late arrivals and a D/C at the beginning of qualifying in round 1. Aside from that, and a couple of minor lag events during racing, it was a smooth night overall. Thanks to all in Division 2 for their cooperation and especially to those on the Team SNAIL roster that keep the races running.

    Thanks to @nmcp1 for the nice layout!

    @Flamango247

    Here's your official S.N.A.I.L. Welcome Post!

    Thanks for your interest!
    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. Send a PSN friend request to the Race Director or Primary Host from your assigned SNAIL Division. 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:
