Sounds like great fun. Id be down if its the late time slot. I have to work that day and i think the early time slot doesnt give me enough time to change, shower, and eat.
Late may end up being the time if that falls to the majority. If interested, make a formal sign up for the late slot, and ill be keeping a running tally to see where we get. Glad to have you if it works out for the later.

Hope there is enough interest to get this one going. To schedule the race night, I'm looking to get at least 12 drivers for one of the two time slots available by Monday 12pm noon est.

If we have a very strong turn out for one slot (over 24 drivers), we will split to 2 rooms. If we have at least 12 for both slots, I plan to run both races.

The rating system is pretty simple. By using the DR rating and the Kudos Speedscore it gives a rough look at a drivers pace to categorize drivers skillset to determine the tire compound to be issued. The softer compounds will be afforded to slower paced drivers as a helper and the harder to handicapp the faster to achieve some driver parity across all skill levels. The D1/D2 designation is for placed drivers within our league as a reference. These don't apply to you directly so can be disregarded.... basically you will be designated as a Diamond-Bronze driver level to decide your tire reg for the race. You will be classed against comparably paced drivers stats in one of the 2 Snail divisions. Knowing from the Sprint Cup, you'll likely be Diamond or Platinum. Hope that sheds a little light to make sense. Ultimately, lap consistency and minimizing mistakes makes the difference. Look forward to racing with you.

Are you using only our primary account or will you look at alternate accounts? I personally only use alternate account for FIA and primary for other online races.
