@kpstormie where are the IRS decals? Cant find them on the pictures.

@seslab I don't have a problem with you running with us for the final rounds, just be sure to put in a registration post on the thread. Also remember you have the option to carry the #1 on your kart if you want. :cheers:

On the points thing, tbh I am going to leave that up to you guys as racers. My job is to fill the room if possible, some racers will be faster than others and yes that will effect the points. But I can assume that we are all adults here and can come up with something to make everyone happy without leaving someone out that wants to race.

IRS logo is an inverted color, it's in the black block on the front fairing.

Thanks a lot 👍 I highly appreciate that ;)

Hmmm took me quite some time for that decision. Finally I'll stick with the 76. :cheers:

I'm alright with both situations. Lars (MrRacingLine) and Apex are the ones who will be more concerned by that. Both can lose places in the championship standings in a worst case scenario. From previous posts from both I can see that they will be fine with that. Still would be nice if they can confirm that 👍

I will also have the a Party chat open via psn (mainly for room access if needed) I will also have a Discord channel open as well for all race communications. Upon entry into the room please enter track as soon as possible so a visibility check can be done to ensure that there is no connectivity issues between racers. Once connectivity checks are completed we will start the event. For the new racers that will be competing with us for the first time be sure to read the Livery requirements in the OP, I will be checking prior to qualifying to make sure everyone's livery is compliant. If it is not compliant you will be asked to correct it before qualifying starts. For qualifying I will have the Track Limit penalty set to weak. For the the race I will have this turned off. Driving options will stay at no limit for the time being.

I will have to miss Friday night’s race as I have to run chains for our High School Football team. Hate to miss a track that I can actually get around good on.

Results will be posted later tonight, yes a bit late this week, life beckons.

Also based on a reveiw of the incidents that happened in the 2nd heat race last week at Alsace, I will not hand down any penalties but giving a stern warning to all competitors to please race a little more careful in the next 2 rounds. I know we all are racing to get as many positions as possible and that being that this is a video game that there isn't any real consequence for bodily or equipment harm, but please race like there is. Close racing is fun, but its event more fun when we are racing close with little to no contact. So please lets be careful.

Sorry I missed Friday's meeting guys. Completely failed to stay awake. I remember "just resting my eyes" around half 12...
Look forward to the race report though, I predict a 55.6 maybe from Seslab!
