    You might want to make a new post with everyone tagged. When you edit a previous post and tag members the notifications don’t work.
    I’m back in D5. What can I do to help? Data, replays, scores(backup), etc.

    I thought last week I had signed up for replay duty for the April season? Been out all day again and didn't see this. I'll be backup replays and host, targeting a room being up at 8:15 CST / 9:15 EST

    Rule changes for those that may not have seen.

    The BoD has been in discussions over the last couple of weeks on some rule changes to SNAIL Sunday night racing. At this time we have three changes to announce. They will all be effective immediately meaning the April season.

    The first is a change to the qualifying rules.

    Any driver who leaves the racing surface during their out lap may return to the track and continue their qualifying run provided the come to a complete stop off the track and wait for the last car in the session to pass. Once the last car has passed, they may leave a sufficient gap (5 seconds) and rejoin the qualifying session. If there is not room to reenter and meet these provisions, the driver must remain off the track until the end of the session.

    The second concerns the use of brake balance adjustment.

    Adjusting brake balance is allowed. This will be allowed until such time that there is a game update that allows for brake balance settings to be verified during a replay.

    The final change involves the use of the clutch pedal.

    Due to the exploitation of a glitch in the way a clutch and H-gate shifter is allowed to be used in Gran Turismo, SNAIL does not allow the use of the clutch pedal in any way. If a driver is suspected of using the clutch pedal in any way, an IR may be filed and the stewards and, if necessary, BoD members will review the replay for indications that the clutch was used. If a driver is found to have used the clutch pedal, they will be assessed a level 5 penalty worth 17 points. This policy will be revisited any time an update is released that changes how the clutch and H-gate shifter or changes shifting in general.

    These changes will be added to the sections of the SNAIL OLR Policies and Guidelines thread later today but they are in effect for tonight's racing.
