    Put my name in for Team GB, there could be more than enough for multiple teams, so as they sign up we can organise a second team or alternate team of some kind.

    The inland lakes under the north sea make the Lion look like he's wearing a cowboy hat. ;)

    Haha, your totally right it does!

    Also, I'm thinking team colours wise, for Team GB, team no.1 could have say blue car, red rims, and team 2, red car blue rims. Or something like that. Or maybe some white in there somewhere. I'm sure it can be figured out if there becomes 2 teams.

    Yes, I'll have to look it up but I do believe the early F1 standardized international motorsport colors is where "British Racing Green" came from. As well as "Italian Racing Red" and "French Blue"... IIRC white was German until Auto Union bucked the trend with the silver arrows (wouldn't surprise me if this is why Audi LMP cars are always silver regardless of sponsorship).

    GB: Green (Brittish racing green)

    1st choice: White, with paralell green stripes (traditional)
    2nd choice: White with horizontal red stripes (since 1965)

    I signed up as a free agent. My vacation schedule is unclear at this time, but I think I will be back by Aug. 4. That is subject to my daugher's sports and work schedules as to when we start our family vacation.

    Sunday at that time should be fine; signed up as confirmed, but hard to know for sure that far away. Let me know our team name, and if we get any more punters :tup:

    Not sure if Ill be around but If I am ill definitely race in this it will also (almost) be my first year in in the WRS :) plus a few days

    Anyway I was thinking for qualifying it would be awesome to do it DTM style 4 rounds first 3 rounds are like F1 where you qualify within a specified amount of time. The 4th round, the pole shootout, is a bit different where the top 4 (although given the number of people it maybe top 6) have only one lap to go for pole (some added pressure might mix up the grid a bit and create an exciting race) What do you guys think??

    I wouldn't mind a T-shirt but the shipping cost will definitely be up there :) unless its snail mail, in that case it would get to me just in time for the 200th week anniversary :sly:

    The qualifying sounds interesting, but probably not a fit for this event. We have a couple rounds, a lot of people to coordinate and not much time given it's a one day event.

    We are going to pre-qualify for round 1 (observed quali) which will free up time for racing on event day. Not 100% decided yet on round 2, but the goals are simple and quick.

    I figured, it would be hard to coordinate, maybe for a future event, maybe gt6 will help out with the coordination

    Go recruit 'em! Check out people from your region on the Official GTP_Registry and see if they are interested/available. I've been trying to drum up some US drivers that way so we can get a few USA teams together.

    Also, if you know anyone not already on the registry, there is a lot of time to qualify yet, so they could easily join in time for the event.

    Got a couple new USA registrations so split USA into red and blue teams. Made a somewhat random split between the two which is not final of course (we can discuss internally), but we can refine once we get a couple more drivers and we can even the handicap. Only requirement is I'm on Lucas' team if he is able to confirm (founders exception :sly:).
