    Further explanation of the theme, provided by our first 2.0 winner, Boabdulrahman:

    "Drag racing in FM4 is awesome, it's a shame that it's not included in GT5. So for this week I want everybody to take pics of drag racing. You know the wheelie start or the neck to neck epicness. Anything that shows what drag racing is all about."

    CARS: Any
    LOCATIONS: Any Drag Strip
    AUTOVISTA/HOMESPACES: No
    CUSTOM LIVERIES: Yes
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Must be shot on a drag strip

    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow
    the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, send a PM to SlipZtrEm, Scaff, or Terronium-12.

    • It is recommended you host your image on ImageShack, Photobucket, or Flickr.
    • Not sure how to post a thumbnail or preview image? Read this sticky!
    • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!

    • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a comp.
      [*]Do not ask other users to choose your entry.
      [*]Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text. On H2H weeks, which side, as well.
      [*]You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
      either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
      [*]When submitting, use either a thumbnail or a preview image, as a clickable link to the full-sizer.
      [*]Preview images can not exceed 500 pixels in either direction.
      [*]A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
      [*]Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
      [*]Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 25. Every fourth
      week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 12-picture,
      4-day polls. The winners from each faces off in a final 48 hour poll.
      [*]Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
      [*]The Host may ask for the original image and it must be submitted if so, by uploading to your storefront.
      For this reason, it's recommended to save the original image until week's ends.
    Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!

    Is this eligible? I can't say I've seen tire shredding in the game so it has to be added during processing. Or am I wrong?

    Unfortunately I think it might be ineligible for the reason you've said. Sure Slip will confirm for us.

    A shame if it is because i really like that shot lol

    Looks like a filter to give the pic an older look to me. Fairly certain it is allowed in the GTP one so I'm guessing it's alright here as well.

    That is possible. The rest of the image is really dark so he could have used a filter to create that effect. But I would guess SS is out of the running cause he going to win the week 2 competition.

    Oi? Me winning Week 2 doesn't affect this week's any!

    That image does look like an aged/damaged filter, so I'll allow it, but yeah, how it's lined up does look an awful lot like shredded rubber.

    Only 7 entries up in here, and 10 in PMC, so guess it'll be open until midnight!

    That makes sense that it is delayed a week so you can't compete in your own theme.
