Driver Classing:

New for this Season I am slightly tweaking the way in which I determine the driver classing. Along with your GT Sport DR I am also looking at your Speedscore % on Kudosprime.

The reason for this is to get a better grouping of the classes we already had. There where drivers in the Pro class last season who really should of been running the the Silver Class and there where drivers at the back of the Silver class who would of benefited from an AM class.

Once you have submitted your entry I will look up your profile on Kudosprime and determine your class.

Kudosprime Speedscore % = Class

Above 70% = PRO
50%-70% = Silver
Below 50% = AM

Silver and AM Classes:

Points will be awarded as normal for the overall finishing position but seperate points will be also awarded for the Silver and AM standings.

The points will be 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1.

Pole Position in the Silver and AM Classes will be awarded 1 point.

If your Speedscore % changes during the Season you will remain in the Class you started the season in :)

Glad to be back and on the entry list. Possibility is that I won't be running in all the events but I will let you know in plenty of time when I won't be there.

Excellent that you've kept the series alive @Raptor013

Yes, I believe that once the UK Summer Time ends it would be GMT that we work off. At the moment for the Aussies in the room the lobby would open at 5:30 on Saturday mornings. However I'll keep those times updated as the UK Summer time ends.

@Invisigoth welcome back.

I'm sorry guys but I will have to pull out from this competition. I'm already focused on multiple other competitions and with work and school in my life, its hard to find much time so I am in the process of pulling out of some leagues. Wish you all the best with the season

Understandable.

I'll hold you in a reserve slot should you get a chance to join us during the holiday period.

Despite a successful campaign with the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3 last season the lease agreement between Raptor Race Engineering and Mercedes was unable to be renewed with both sides citing a differing of opinion on how best to develop the car.

"We had hoped that we could strike a last minute deal to continue running the car, however with the opening race this weekend, we were left with no option but to walk away." a member of the team was quoted who wished to remain unanimous.

With just days to get the car ready for the opening race at Red Bull Ring, the call was made to the teams home away from home where the squads 2021 Manufacturer Cup cars were being refreshed after a long season.

An around the clock effort to finish the disassembly of the teams GT3 car along with major repairs to the rear floor after a major component failure on the cool down lap at Tsukuba saw the car burst into flames before the back straight, and then subsequently fall off the recovery truck after the fire was extinguished when the locking straps failed.

This morning the team rolled a freshly rebuilt and re-liveried "Dia" out of the workshop to be loaded on the truck heading across The Channel to Austria for the season opener.

The team also completed the conversion of the teams GT4 car "Maki" which will debut at the World GT Challenge Super Sprint held at Sardegna.
