    Further explanation of the theme, provided by StoneyNUFC:

    The big race is coming up, so Stoney wants to see cars that do (or have) take(n) part in the day-long epic. If you're unsure, ask, since he'll be getting a qualifying list of cars ready at some point in the week. Multi-car shots are allowed provided all in the image are eligible!

    CARS: Prototypes (R1) or GT cars (R2, R3)
    LOCATIONS: La Sarthe
    AUTOVISTA/HOMESPACES: No
    CUSTOM LIVERIES: Only if it's a real Le Mans replica
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: See above

    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!

    That's quite alright: this is going to be open for another... 16 hours or so. I'm far too wiped after work to do anything substantial right now :lol:
