Race Event Updates and News

Hey everyone, as race time draws near here is an event update regarding the race. Registration as been extended to Saturday, November 29th till 5pm EST. That should give everyone a little more time to finalize entries and let everyone decide. Livery submissions have also been extended till Saturday, November 29th till 10pm. Because you don't submit a livery, it does not mean you will not be allowed to race, but may require you to take a grid penalty and lessen the likely hood of you entry being promoted on social media if it does not follow the stated guidelines as listed in the OP.

As schedule of the date is posted below, times have been altered for the event to give more lee time before the Dragon Trail 400km Gr.3 Race scheduled following the event, event lobby setting will be the same as what is listed in the OP. Look forward to seeing everyone on race day.
