    Sorry I'm not much of a drinker and I got a chance to finally hang out with a co-worker so I had a good time. Unfortunately I can't really be all that functional when I seriously drink so I was useless in a practice room.

    Ya I'd think joining a practice room with some drinks in you wouldn't be the best if ideas. Not a good way to make friends lol

    I don't think I've ever had a Canadian beer. What's a good one to try?

    I had five 5% ABV beers in just under 2 hours. That's a good way to get drunk fast. Local micro-brewery down the street a ways from where I work. Nice hole-in-the-wall kinda joint.

    There are some Canadian Beers the have ABV well above 10%.. Just saying 5% is like drinking 5 Bud lights.

    Oh I know. Normal beer in the US is light beer in the North. I'm not a big drinker in general so those would put me out of commission real quick lol

    Trust me it take's practice!, you must eat first and then take a breather!, go to the little boy's room and then you're ready to practice/race!
    After you've done that, do it again! :crazy:
    or NOT! :yuck:

    (do not do what I do, I am an unpaid spokesman)
    NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE......! IN REAL LIFE!

    Your only advice, and especially you, should be to not drink before you race or while you race.

    Red Racer pale ale is one of my favourite craft beers, brewed about 40 miles west of my place. There was another one that a buddy brought from Vancouver Island that was real smooth, but I can't remember the name :/

    Therapist IPA. 10.4 percent and smooth as can be. Brewed in Turlock CA about a 35 minute drive from me. Good restaurant and great brewery.

    Revirst embedded his "Can I join? I bought the cars and did all the other stuff" at the bottom of the post he quoted - it ended up inside the quote from @zer05ive so it wasn't obvious.

    As JLBowler is outta town - and this week's divisional placement deadline was Thursday, Revirst will miss this week. Once he goes through the welcome post from @nmcp1 and gets his ducks in a row, hopefully he can get ready for next week.

    Yeah, I did this a few times and it never worked out well. Seems that drinking and driving doesn't improve any skills. Virtually, no real casualties, but certainly a negative effect on clean racing if it is highly competitive.

    Seeing as there was a bit of discussion on how great our Canadian beer is, I thought I would share this little bit of info that just came out, as we have a slightly international flavour to SNAIL.

    Canada reclaims its place as world's most admired country

    The US ranked #22

    @Revirst

    Here's your official SNAIL 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 SNAIL 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 SNAIL 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. SNAIL Administrators will reach out to you via a GT Planet conversation with further instructions on joining the SNAIL [Spec] Racing club. Sunday races are organized exclusively through the GT6 Community features within the game. To find your assigned room on Sunday please follow the steps below:
    1. Go to Community, from the GT6 My Home screen.
    2. Select Clubs
    3. Select SNAIL [Spec] Racing
    4. Select Club Lobby (on left) not Club Events
    5. Find your division room #, select it and join.
    5. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below.

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

    Again, 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 SNAIL :cheers:

    You are not even Canadian, well not originally. We brought you over for your experience in sheep husbandry.

    hmm, @aerolite , interesting, but :confused: where are those data coming from? I, and guess you too, only trust in that statistic I've falsified myself or pimped up the marketing of it ;) :cool:

    I am sure he got it from a reliable source... It's almost like "the Brain is the most important organ in the human body ... according to the brain"
