    I am probably missing something.

    Should I test which cars can do a roughly eight minute long lap as well? I was thinking most combinations would require a two lap race rather than a three lap race. The Yaris cannot do a 5:30.000 lap...:scared::nervous::sick::indiff:

    Would be a shame to exclude so many vehicles just to make the race be minimum three laps long, for exactly 16 min. Can we amend the rule for this long circuit, allowing a combo to be below 16 minutes if adding another lap will force the combination to exceed the maximum allowed total time? :confused: I don’t think anyone would mind a one minute shorter race if that were to happen occasionally.

    I will not support any proposal that results in two lap races. If you want to ask some of the other BoD members if they would support it then be my guest. If more BoD members support a two lap race and giving up race time then it can be adopted. I've given you what I would need to see to propose something to the BoD because you keep tagging me in posts asking why it can't be added. A race under the 16:30 limit is already allowed. Going over 16:30 per race for a mid-division time is what is not allowed.

    Having a car that can run a 6 minute lap would make for a 12 minutes race. Would be a shame to give up 4:30 of potential race time per race just to race at a really long road.

    I have read the first post and would like to join. I was a member of Snail years ago, but due to moving and family commitments, I had to take a hiatus. I'm now a settled and would like to rejoin for some fun and relaxation.

    @EvoSpecX

    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’m still not sure why there’s a hangup on number of laps. Seems arbitrary to say minimum laps is 2 given that the actual target 16.5 minutes. Okay, so there is concern that a super-dee-duper car would run mid-division lap time of 5:31 to 6:30, resulting in a short race of 11 to 13 minutes. The number of cars that can do that is very low (and these cars don’t typically get picked). Q: How many would be unhappy with an infrequent short race? A: Not nearly the amount that would be upset with the dude who picked it [the tomahawk-ish car].
    In any case, seems there was a pole taken and if I remember, there wasn’t too much interest. But I still like the meme Mike produced!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. A quick feeling out of the rest of the BoD didn't exactly generate a whole lot of support for making any changes to allow for the selection of the Nurburgring with the Nordschliffe portion.

    To add to @Nick Cannella post, if you wish to be granted access to either the scoring or data sheets, please send me a private message. The reason this is done in a private message is that you must provide an email address to be granted access to the sheets and we don't want to do that in public.

    Please specify which sheet you want access to. The scoring sheet is just for entering results during race night. The data sheet is for entering fast laps for all drivers after racing is completed.

    @CANOWORMS1, once you have access to scoring sheets we can set up a chat to review the process. It’s pretty straight forward for scoring.

    :lol::lol::lol: I was thinking their was going to be racing next Sunday and look at the calendar that no racing will be happening next Sunday due to the Super Bowl. I was laughing to myself when i seen the race calendar won't be till the 14th. Really great combo's for next official racing.

    Maybe we need to run a non points race at the Nurburgring.....at a time that works for everyone, and maybe still be able to catch the game???

    edit: I forgot to say this should be in the Sambus

    I know this is pretty late, but should we attempt to run another Super Bowl square pool like last year and the year before?

    I’ll host a lobby tonight if there’s no formal practice lined up. I’ll be on before 9ET and send lobby ID if no one else beats me to it.
