    _____________________________________________________________

    Rules and Regulations

    We are running with two classes on track at the same time. The faster Group A is made up of GT1 style cars, all making 600+ horsepower.

    New to online racing and want to get into something competitive? You're in luck! Group B has been reclassified, and will now be a one - make spec class, using the Nissan Silvia S15 Touring Car. Great class for new drivers! For more, head HERE.

    Flip can you post a current list of entrants. Also GTP_WRS has dealt with the PSN tag /GTP tag problem (most have different tags for each which leads to confusion). Each entrant is listed by GTP Tag and first name. This removes all problems.

    The race times may change since this series will be run in the summer. I will have more time, and that might mean we'll start earlier. As I mention in there somewhere, everything is sort of penciled in at the moment, things can definitely change.

    Flip I updated my Group A driver. It is Draqua_fresh. He is unsure of what car currently.

    You can pencil me in with the Lexus right now but that is subject to change.

    We are in early days, but I would like to put in here that I am looking for a Group B driver to form a team.

    Team colors will either be lime green car with black wheels, or black car with green wheels. Can't decide. May do both and go back and forth throughout the season. :D

    Quick note on teams: If team owners are good with Photoshop or some other imaging software and would like to make a team logo for themselves, you are more than welcome to. If you do, PM it to me and I'll put it up in the forum.

    Speaking of photo shop an image experts, I am looking to hire an individual for a team logo. A pm would be great, but I can only compensate with slight dental care from DrAqua along with a multitude of alcoholic beverages at my bar. I have not passed this on to my teammate about the dental care, but I am sure he would rather give dental care versus sexual offerings ;-).

    We are currently working on confirming dates and times. I know the series we just got out of ran at a weird time for most people, but it was what worked best for my schedule.

    Now that we are approaching summer, I will have a little more time on my hands, so maybe we can run at a time that suits more people. Friday nights may be possible, but if I did that, there may be more that one break in the schedule, and a week with no racing because I'll be places.

    I have a fairly hectic week ahead of me, so I can't say that I'll have it all figured out this week. But we will get this worked out.
