    I can confirm this vote. I'm still working out getting write permissions to the data spreadsheet, so @Rob Brown was filling in as the backup. He must have missed @Xradkins vote after R2R2.

    I have read the first post and would like to join, or rather re-join. I used to race with you guys back in 2016-17 and just upgraded my set up so I can play GT Sport. Looks like a few familiar names are still around in here!

    @JFlagg_PGH
    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join SNAIL Racing League:

    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 start a conversation and add zer05ive, JLBowler, nmcp1, Rednose58, MajorBlixem, SAMHAIN85 & llNovall as participants.

    The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing.

    3. 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.
    4. 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.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    I missed xrads vote. I failed to inquire if anyone noticed if Xrad voted. Sorry. -> Result: Bring the Supra back! Hey, this is like the presidential election - vote early then don’t call it over until you come up with the number of votes that you need (after-the-fact). Welcome to the new era! Giddy up!

    Agree Supra is one of the most fun normal cars I’ve seen. But if @Timlour freezes the track instead then I vow to choose another fun car :)

    I want to make sure there's practice tonight. If I don't see a lobby up, my cunning plan is to open a lobby a 9 pm est for 30 minutes of warm up, 10 minutes at each combo. At 9:30 est I plan on running each combo for 2 short races. I hope you can join me.

    All hosts should start tonight's racing at the scheduled time. The only reason to hold the start is to give someone who was already in the lobby their three minutes to return from the time they left, provided they are believed to have been disconnected, or to sort invisible driver issues.

    Here are the unofficial results from our league night on December 6, 2020

    Click here for this season's points standings and click a tab at the bottom for more detail.

    Click here if the data linked above has already been archived and you would like to view it.


    Division 1
    1. MikeGrove --------- voted to eliminate Round 1 - 89 (Ineligible for Prize)
    2. Duce_LST ---------- voted to eliminate Round 1 - 87 (92.12 for Prize A) SEE NOTE BELOW
    3. Timlour ----------- voted to eliminate Round 2 - 86 (91.06 for Prize C)
    4. Yugofan ----------- voted to eliminate Round 2
    5. Nic-KL ------------ did not submit a vote
    6. Sand__68 ---------- voted to eliminate Round 3
    7. aedenmaddok ------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    8. Rauljimenez76 ----- voted to eliminate Round 3
    9. PX7-Jon ----------- voted to eliminate Round 2
    10. Kgffty ------------ did not submit a vote
    11. no1needs2perish --- did not submit a vote
    Division 2
    1. Ice_Warden -------- voted to eliminate Round 3 - 96 (90.36 for Prize B)
    2. Akzl298 ----------- voted to eliminate Round 1
    3. TEX36 ------------- voted to eliminate Round 2
    4. Canoworms1 -------- voted to eliminate Round 2
    5. FooleyCooley ------ voted to eliminate Round 2
    6. RacingChamp30 ----- voted to eliminate Round 2
    7. CreAtlveManlAc ---- voted to eliminate Round 3
    8. Skills_19657 ------ voted to eliminate Round 2

    The round that received the most elimination votes was:
    Round 2 - ALFA ROMEO 4C GR.4 (RH) at Autodrome Lago Maggiore - East - 05:00 Clear (11 laps)
    Therefore the entire combo has been dropped from next week's line-up. Since @LST wins Prize A, he gets to choose an entirely new car and track combo to replace it.
    PLEASE NOTE: Since @LST has already won Prize A this season, he is ineligible to win it again until next season. This means that unless he loses Prize A due to incident reviews, any driver who competed in Division 1 on Sunday night will have the opportunity to suggest an entirely new car and track combo. I recommend that all D1 drivers from Sunday night start TESTING combos they would like to suggest. That way, you will be ready to post a good combo when @JLBowler gives the "all clear". It's important to mention that a good combo will not have a car that hits its rev limiter at any point during a race (even in a draft). Also, please be sure to only suggest one combo. Any driver who suggests more than one combo will automatically be ineligible to suggest any combos at all. Please don't let that happen to you. Only suggest ONE combo (but not until @LST is confirmed as the Prize A winner).

    The round that received the second most elimination votes was:
    Round 1 - TOYOTA GR SUPRA RZ 2020 (SS) at Kyoto Driving Park - Yamagiwa - 11:30 Fine Weather (8 laps)
    This means either the car or the track will be replaced for next week's line-up. Since @IceWarden 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 @Timlour 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 choose the Integra Type R as your car selection, post "Honda Integra Type R (DC2) '98". If you want to select Monza for your track, post "Autodromo Nazionale Monza". Being specific helps us to update the lineup accurately and also helps avoid any confusion among the drivers. Also, please be sure to list the HP and Weight (LBS) of any car you select. For track selections, include the time of day (e.g: 09:00 Clear) or else it will be left to default.

    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
