Driver Roster
1.)
Knowing that all drivers are not always going to make a race night and to nearly guarantee a full grid, we will be carrying a driver roster of at least 22 drivers. This series will not distinguish between Primary and Reserve Driver status.

All Drivers signed up for this series are eligible to confirm attendance for Race Night as a full time primary driver.

Confirmation of Attendance Policy
1.) By Monday afternoon, of the week of Race Night, a "Confirmation to Attend" post tagging ALL Drivers will be posted in the thread as a reminder to confirm your status for race night, however, Drivers may Confirm at anytime between Events by posting in the thread. Any and all Confirmations can be made up to 7pm est of Race Night.
2.) The first 16 drivers to reply in the thread "Attending" guarantees themselves a position on the grid up to the start of qualifying at 7:45pm est.

*Dont be Late to make your entry*

[Race Room will be opened by 7:30pm est. Entries must be in by 7:45pm est to guarantee your grid spot. (Any Top 16 confirmed drivers running late may proceed to race room after 8:00pm est if vacancies are still showing at that time.)]
**Confirmed drivers outside the top 16 are encouraged to be on standby to fill last minute no shows, call outs, and/or late arrivals without prior notice**
3.) At 8:00pm est, I will PSN message all remaining confirmed drivers here in the thread inviting them into the Race Room with the number of grid spots available. First Driver(s) to make it into the Race Room will be granted the vacant grid spots.
"FIRST COME FIRST SERVE"
-Do not enter the Race Room before
the Invite message is recieved on PSN
4.) Once you are in the race room, make your entry and begin open qualifying.

This process is set up to reward those drivers who are most ready and committed to run this series.

All drivers are encouraged to make sure you have this thread in "Watch" status so that posts and notifications are received.

After the 1 week rebuttle period has ended,(Monday 8pm of Race weekend to the following Monday at 8pm) the Chief Steward and/or any support stewards will review all incidents filed and submit a ruling in the respective incident group pm by 6pm Friday of the next race event.


UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD AN INCIDENT BE FILED OR DISCUSSED IN THE MAIN THREAD, IN RACE, OR THE INGAME LOBBY. IF THIS OCCURS, A MANDATORY UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT PENALTY OF UP TO 50 POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE SEASON'S TOTAL, AND POSSIBLY A 2 EVENT SUSPENSION FROM THE SERIES AT THE STEWARD's DECISION AND DISCRETION

The Stewards will be utilizing the penalty guidelines set up and used within the Snail Spec Racing Series. Follow the link below for:
Penalty judging Guidlines
https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/snail-olr-policies-and-guidelines.332619/#post-12630811


All Stewards are to review a replay of an incident in question and reply to the PM with their opinion as to what "Level" the incident falls under, and a recommended point value within selected level to deduct.
*The Chief Steward will make a final review of all incidents filed, taking into account any rebuttals and the other Steward's grading of the incidents and will make a final ruling for issuing penalty points.

**Please Note: If the Chief Steward deems, in any way, the lead driver lost control, and the chase driver attempts to brake or evade, but still makes contact, no penalty may be issued at the Chief Steward's discretion. **

At a 10 week season's end, the results sheet will be reviewed for each driver. All repeat offenders of the rules of this league will be reviewed by the Chief Steward and Steward Corp on a severity and case by case basis. If the review reflects a consistency or lack of improvement, the Chief Steward may recommend removal from the series by a peer to peer judgement .

Penalty points will be shown in the Overall Season Standings Scoresheet and will be deducted from the event score it was recieved and from following event scores until cleared.
This series will be adhering to the following linked OLR and good racecraft guidelines when deciding fault for any reported incidents.
https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/snail-olr-policies-and-guidelines.332619/#post-12630786. **

I'm typically not a fan as gt sport isn't the best at simulating it, but it does make this car feel more authentic. If consensus seems to show it as too much a nuisance we will adjust as needed to using it if it provides better racing.

You know what. Add me to this. I like this idea.

No abs. Gonna have to drive the car without help and deal with the stress of the aged car. Even if I lose its worth it.

Awesome:tup:. And I'm of the same mindset. Rather be slower with the authenticity it brings using the older car and added Challenge of trying to make it work. I'll have you added to the roster.:cheers:

Gonna be a lot of tire smoke, but I changed my vote to no abs. It’s really not that bad, though tire wear could be an issue. This is where that brake mod that came with pedals could come in handy..... if only I knew where I put it....

I don't know if I did this or not or if there are reserve spots open. I'm supposed to replace Drummers place for this Friday. I confirm I will be there (Flight lands in Florida at 3 wooo!). @llNovall I need you to resend the livery link again. I got an error trying to download it to my collection.

I got you on the list to cover his open spot.Glad you will be able to make it this Friday, and excited to have you on the grid with us. I'll send over the livery shortly. Btw, this is the thread for another series to start up in January to be a filler series between the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series I have going. Check it out.
I'll get that livery link to you, and see you on Friday.:cheers:

For anyone wanting to try out this car before signing up, drive the car at specs with stock suspension and diff, then apply the tune pictured below. Our trusty friend Priano pulled out another great tune for this car. It is now engaging and fun to drive rather than frustrating and exhausting. I ran it with and without abs and both felt great.
