    I can only imagine. I am sure his consulting on the television series didn’t help him write any faster.

    At least you got to live in the “mainstream” conversation for a while - and even know what most people were going to be talking about.

    I really hope he gets the next books published soon so that you can enjoy the print versions. A Dream of Spring will really be a great read - if it gets published sooner than the past wait. It also stinks that he wrote books in the same timeframe - even if it was to build the characters stories.

    Hope you enjoy the liveries I will be creating.

    If anyone's looking to step their game up I suggest checking out @Tidgney 's driving school. Hes up there with the fastest guys in Europe and knows what hes doing. He just released the latest installment today. Hes also a pretty entertaining streamer and is the sole reason why I chose Audi for FIA Manufacturers this season. Since they race before us in NA, I have a guideline to go off before I race.

    Don't confuse new members. You can post anything as long as it is not with the purpose to discuss or call out Incident Reports. However, if you want to post something, review the whole video for other things that may draw comments or attention. Think about an advertisement for a table. You take a photo of the table but you forgot about the mirror on the wall that reflects you are standing in you underwear taking the photo.....You will end up with more comments about you beer belly and hairy legs than the table)

    There is not such a thing as an official SNAIL stream. Members broadcast their live streams for others to enjoy and for recruiting purposes.


    See above.
    If you want to see the full replay of other divisions, you can download them by searching Tag #1 with the following convention (see the 4th paragraph)

    @Noob01_lmdead the decimals are used in case there is a tie. Have a look at the results from Sunday night:

    tie.PNG

    You, Bologna and bass were all tied with 77 pts. To decide the tie-breaker, whoever has the most golds breaks it. Bologna having 2, bass 1, you 0.

    If two or more people are tied with the same amount of golds, the tie-breaker goes to whoever has the most silvers, and then bronze.

    Also - if I am not mistaken - the decimals don’t “stay”. They are used for toe (tie) breaking, but in the season stats they aren’t used for the overall points.

    Edit - phone fix (thanks @Akzl298)

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - BMW M3 SPORTS EVOLUTION 1989 (SH) at Willow Springs International Raceway: Streets of Willow Springs II - 21:00 Clear (8 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @Bologna_Duc wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - MCLAREN 650S GT3 2015 (RH) at Autódromo De Interlagos - 13:45 Fine Weather (7 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @Timlour 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 @Fudman420 so he gets whichever option the Prize B winner does not select.

    Preliminary prize winners, please don't announce your prize selection until all incident reports have been filed and it has been confirmed that you don't have any penalties. It's also recommended that you review the SNAIL combo history and other data on our car and track history so that you can get an idea how many times we've raced each car and track. Please remember that originality is always appreciated, so picking cars and tracks that we've never raced is a plus (but not required). What's more important is that you thoroughly test any combo that you are considering before making it your official selection. For example, any car you select should not hit its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in the draft).

    IMPORTANT: 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. Also, please be sure to list the PP and HP (after oil change) of any car you select.

    Car Selection Guidelines
    See Section 3 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines.

    Track Selection Guidelines
    See Section 3.1 of the SNAIL OLR, Policies and Guidelines

    I have a feeling Race 2 is going to be very popular. What protocol is in place to ensure all FT drivers are provided a place on the grid? How will the other places be filled, first come, first serve?

    If it comes down to 2 rooms I’m sure @BradESPN will gladly allow 2 rooms.

    If there is 1 extra. I’ll back out and watch a stream.

    If the old Pack Racing boost racing is anything to go by and combined with strong slipstream, you guys are gonna have a blast with that race.

    This week's prize winners are clear to make their selections. Good racing!
    The IR Submission Form is now closed.
    We have 10 incidents on file. Target deadline for reviews is NLT 10PM Eastern on Friday, April 19, 2017.
    Banner by @GamingPete

    The stewards completed enough reviews before this post to declare the official prize winners. They are as follows:
    1st prize winner = @basswerks1 He gets prize A
    2nd prize winner = @Timlour He has the option to use the freeze or pass it to the 3rd prize winner and make a choice of car or track.
    3rd prize winner = @Fudman420 He gets whichever prize the 2nd prize winner doesn't take.

    All three of you will be included in a conversation with deadlines and instructions.

    All of the full-time drivers are guaranteed to race with all of the other full-time drivers in their division, and any SNAIL that wants to join us will have a spot. If this necessitates two lobbies, we'll have two lobbies.

    On a related note, if you're interested in joining in tonight (for either race), please say so on our dedicated thread so that we can plan accordingly.

    Thanks for the shout. I've been on a little bit here and there the past couple of months, but nowhere near the time I would like to be able to. One of these days I will be back. Many fond memories and funny moments, and I always enjoy seeing you guys still at it and doing it well.
