SERIES ABS BUG BULLETIN POST
This series will use a staggered grid start procedure for both races between car classes to afford the TCR Class cars a 30 second headstart, creating the cross Class traffic situation this series promises.
After qualifying is complete or after Race 1, the Race Director will set the grid with TCR Class cars in the front based on qualifying results (or Reverse Grid based on previous results), and then the GS Class the same.
-The race will be a Grid Start
*TCR Class will launch as normal on the lights.
**GS Class will remain stationary for 30 seconds by holding the emergency brake or the brake pedal. DO NOT MOVE.
-At the 30.00 second mark on the lap timer in the middle of the screen, GS Drivers launch as a grid start. (GS drivers will be reminded to keep the car stationary and not jump the timer). -if this occurs, a driver, after launching, can pull to the side to concede all positions as their penalty, or accept a post race penalty of 5 points. Don't jump.
RACE NIGHT ANNOUNCEMENT
16 player Party Chat Policy
The Party Chat feature will opened after the Race Room with the following Rules:

1.) It is required that drivers enter the Open party chat to help in the flow of communication to start the night and communicate Caution requests/issuing and directives during the Caution.
2.) Open Conversation is allowed at the opening of the Race Room to the official start of Qualifying, approximately 9:15pm est. *ALL MICs MUST BE MUTED AT THIS TIME, thru Qualifying, and Race* (Host will remind all drivers to please mute mics before the call to start qualifying)
3.) During the race, Drivers may only come on the mic to verbally request a Caution/Yellow Flag, and for the Caution to be issued by the Race Director and directives related to the Caution.
4.) Once the race finish countdown is complete, drivers may resume un-muted conversation up to the call to mute mics before the next race.

Be reminded that no discussions regarding on track incidents are to be discussed, except obviously, if it is simply an apology and no more. Please review the penalty guidelines for more detail on this policy.

And Lastly,

**Please don't be that guy who has their mic on the whole race** (If your headphones do not have a mute feature, simply leave the party chat before the Qualifying Session begins**

Hopefully this will add to the overall quality of these Events.

Team Scoring
-The total score of both attending primary drivers of a 2 car race team will be the team points earned for an event.
-Independent Drivers/single car teams will be scored in the team standings, but scores will obviously reflect the points of only that driver for an event.
-Reserve drivers filling in on a race night will have their score count toward the team/driver they are covering for.
To sign up for the series:
1.) Chose the Class and Car of your choice from the list of available cars (Tab 3.1), and apply the base BOP Regulations shown for your chosen car.

Then:
Please "Copy/Paste" the following and post in the thread:

"I have reviewed the first post and would like to participate in the Snail Gr4-Michelin Pilot Cup Challenge International Tour, and agree to run the time trial to establish my driver specific BOP regulations.
PSN ID:
Car:
Number:
Race Team: (not required at sign up)"


2.) A PM will be sent with Time Trial Lobby settings and details.
3.) See the tuning links (Tab 3.3) and tune your car or chose not to tune, just be sure to time trial the way you plan to race the car.
4.) Run the time trial until you cannot achieve anymore time (Run at least 12-15 laps)
5.) Reply in the pm, your time trial results in the form of a screen shot or picture as shown below, displaying lap history, sector bests, and fast lap:
View attachment 899724
Drivers signing up:
*Sign up and run the time trial as instructed in the sign up instruction tab above.
*after all time trials are received, a median time range based on the driver majority within 0.5 sec of each other in each car Class will be established. (Assessed times will be based on drivers fast lap and consistent lap times)
*time trial results will be referenced against the handicap/concession Leveling standards shown below to establish an initial driver parity.
*A Testing/Exhibition race night will be scheduled to test the parity of all drivers in attendance.
-Drivers unable to attend will be asked to Time Trial using the Exhibition night track combo.
*All data collected will be used to bring all drivers within a 0.5 sec range of each other.
*A second Test/Exhibition night at a different track combo will be scheduled to run a final format test. (Those not attending may again submit time trial results for fine tuning)
-no major variances/adjustments should be required at this point.
*A final Driver bop Regulation sheet will be drafted and displayed for all drivers.
-(These settings will be the starting point of each driver for the Season opener)
*Drivers who participate more in this process will have a more accurate assessment going into the Season.
-(Initial Leveling will be on the aggressive/more challenging side of the base driver pace range. Fine tuning the numbers over the 2 Test/Exhibition nights will create more accuracy.)
*Any drivers who do not participate in some way over the 2 Exhibition combos will have their driver specific bop regulations defaulted to one Level harder to start the season.

Changes to driver BOP regulations will then only be made after each event when a driver is out too far from the base range of field. (This is not a success handicap/concession based on performance, only the equalization of drivers into the pace. Hopefully everything will line up before we get to the first race, assuming the majority of drivers participate in pre-season testing)

12 Reserve Drivers will be kept for this Challenge series:
-(6) GS Class Reserve Drivers and (6) TCR Class Drivers
-Reserve Drivers will chose from the remaining cars/classes available and complete the signup and time trial process as if they were Primary Drivers.
-A Reserve Driver Newsfeed PM will be sent to all Reserve drivers to communicate any primary driver report offs or solicitations of open primary grid spots if one becomes available.
-Reserve Driver grid priority is: 1st based on the number of events completed/participation in testing, then the date and time a driver confirmed available for an upcoming event (if same) in the class needing to be covered.
**Partial event participation does not count. Must run an entire race night to be counted**
-Report offs will first be covered by the highest priority Reserve drivers of the same car class.
(Example): If a GS Class primary driver reports off, the highest priority GS reserve driver confirmed available will cover the grid spot.
-In the event a Reserve Driver is needed, but none are available from the needed car class, the highest priority driver of the other car class will be granted entry, and that car class will run a larger field for that race night.
(Example): If a TCR Reserve Driver reports off. No TCR reserves are available for race night. The highest priority GS reserve driver confirmed available will then be invited to cover the grid spot resulting in the GS Class running a car strong for the race night (11 GS entries).
-Reserve drivers will be scored and earn points toward the season as a normal driver entry whenever they obtain a spot on the grid. (Reserves who consistently participate and/or confirm their availability early have the best opportunity at finding a spot on the grid and potentially a strong season standing if enough events are raced.)
-If the Primary Driver being covered is part of a "2 car Race Team", points earned by the covering Reserve driver will count towards that team's points for the event.
-Reserve Drivers will be notified of any report offs in the Newsfeed PM as they are recieved.
-Any additional un-used Reserve Drivers are encouraged to be online and on standby at 9pm est of Race Night. In the event there are "NO REPORT/NO SHOWS" at 9:15pm est of race night, a PSN group message will be sent to any Reserve Drivers online (PSN) inviting them to the race room to fill any vacant spots on a first to enter basis. DO NOT ENTER THE RACE ROOM UNTIL AN INVITE MESSAGE IS SENT. Once in the room, be sure to verify your driver specific BOP regulations and begin qualifying with the remaining time available. (Driver specific BOP regulations of last minute entries will be verified after qualifying results are recorded. Any late entry driver with incorrect BOP regulations applied will be disqualified for the race: be sure to verify before making your entry and qualifying)


Solicitation of Primary Grid Spots
In the event a Primary Driver fails to adhere to the Confirmation and attendance policy or chooses to retire from the series, the follow process is used:
1.) The Reserve Driver with the most point scoring events completed within the needed Class will be offered the open spot first. (If tied, it will be offered to those drivers tied; first to reply wins the spot)
2.) If no point scoring Reserves of a needed Class accepts an offered spot, the open spot(s) will be solicited to the remainder of that Class, and then the entire Reserve Group if still not filled. (In this situation, if the driver who accepts the spot is in a different class than the offered open spot, that class will run the added entry and the other an entry down)
**Roster Requirements to Open a 2nd race room to seperate the night by car class to include available Reserves**:
-to encourage continued interest and availability by our Reserve driver groups from both classes, the series will have an attendance requirement to be met before committing to a 2nd race event room to make room for Reserves to race if available.
-A minimum of 14 or more GS Class Drivers (Primary and Reserve combined) must be confirmed attending or available to race by 5pm est on the Thursday before race night.
AND
-A minimum of 10 or more TCR Class Drivers (Primary and Reserve combined) must be confirmed attending or available to race by 5pm est on the Thursday before race night.
-Any less confirmed than the above from either Car Class by the specified time will Default to the original 1 multi class race room based on grid priority and open spots filled as needed.
-Confirmed drivers have until 5pm est of race day to cancel and maintain their primary status. Any confirmed drivers who cancel after this time will forfeit their primary grid spot to a wanting Reserve and will be moved down to the Reserve driver roster.
Race Night CONFIRMATION, ABSENTEE REPORTING, and PARTICIPATION POLICY

Driver "Race Night" confirmation policy
-A Confirmation Reminder Post with ALL drivers tagged will be posted in the main thread as well as a PSN conversation by the Friday of the week before a scheduled Race night
**All Drivers, primary and Reserve may "Early" confirm their attendance or availability at any time after the most recent Event.** (For Reserves, priority will be based on date and time availability was confirmed)
-All drivers tagged must confirm that they "will" or "will not" be racing by 5pm est Thursday (day before race night) to secure their grid spot and/or to adhere to the absentee policy.
-Any Primary drivers who fail to confirm their status for race night by 5pm est Thursday will forfeit grid priority to confirmed Reserve Drivers for the night.
-If any drivers forget to confirm by 5pm est Thursday, and grid spots are still showing open on race night, they may post their intention to race in the thread or via PSN by 9:00pm est (race might) with priority given based on time of post.
-Any left over open grid spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis when the room opens until the grid is full.
-Qualifying starts at 9:15pm est, with the race to start promptly at 9:30pm est.

Absentee and Reporting policy
As a courtesy and a series policy, anyone who knows they will be absent or thinks they will be absent for a race night, please report here in the thread by no later than 5pm est Thursday (day before race day). This will give myself and the Reserve drivers plenty of notice and time to prepare to keep race night on time and fill the grid as much as possible. With a report off, you will forfeit your primary grid spot for the night, however, if your plans change and you can make it last minute, and there are still open spots on the grid, you may proceed to enter and race.

*Any "NO REPORT/NO SHOWS" by a Primary Driver on race night will immediately forfeit their spot on the primary drivers list to a reserve driver for the remainder of the season or until a spot re-opens. This also applies to drivers who confirmed their attendance and failed to cancel before 5pm est of race day or did not show without notice prior to 5pm est of race day*

**Any "NO REPORT/NO SHOWS" by a Reserve Driver on race night will forfeit the ability to accept a permanent primary grid opening until at least 1 event is attended. This also applies to drivers who confirmed their attendance and then did not show without notice prior to 5pm est of race day**

*!Any driver who confirmed attendance for race night and does not make their Race entry by
9:15pm est without prior notice that they will be late (by 9pm est) may be forced to forfeit the grid spot to a standby Reserve Driver for the night if the Reserve Driver enters the room to begin qualifying. The Primary driver must then post in the thread that they forgot/lost track of time/etc to adhere to the no report policy and maintain their primary grid spot for the season!* (No report/no show is grounds to forfeit your primary grid spot for the remainder of the season.)
IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE LATE TO MAKE YOUR ENTRY, PLEASE PM ME VIA GTPLANET OR PSN BEFORE 9PM, AND YOUR SPOT WILL BE HELD, or if there are still openings when trying to enter after the 9:15pm cut off, the primary driver may do so and maintain grid priority and begin qualifying for the remainder of the session.

**Also, any primary driver who misses 3 consecutive race nights "with" advanced notice will forfeit their spot on the primary drivers list to a reserve driver; or if a Reserve Driver, you will loss any Reserve roster priority obtained when active**

With smartphones, computers, playstations, etc...there should be no reason that any absence could not be reported. Please confirm your status or report your absence as soon as you know.

Race Night Participation Policy
Any drivers that confirm their attendance for Race night are holding a grid spot and committing to a full night of racing. For this series format to function the way it was intended, participation to the end of race night is extremely important. Therefore, any driver who leaves prior to the conclusion of race night will receive
-5 Points for the Race Event.

Exceptions:
(If you disconnect during a race, please return to the room and wait out the remainder of that race. This will satisfy the above participation policy.)
[Life does dish out Emergency situations. If this occurs, please exit the race and post the message: "Emergency Exit Needed" before leaving the room.]



Please remember that a grid spot was held for you to race when you confirm attendance, and there may be events later in the season that Reserve drivers want to race and are turned away due to priority being given to the primary drivers. Let's be sure that the grid spots we are holding are being used up for the night.


Thanks Fellas.

4.) Rules of Engagement/Caution Procedures
In this section are rules and track etiquette pertaining to Multi-Class racing: when to race and when to concede, and proper ways to do so.
GS Class race cars out power and out perform TCR Class race cars in just about every category: power, cornering, and outright speed. Depending on the track, pace per lap can vary from 2.0-4.0 seconds from one class to the other. Drivers from both classes must consider the differences in acceleration, cornering speeds, and especially differences in braking distances.
Use the following rules and guidelines during races in traffic.

GS Class Rules
GS Class rules are rather simple:
*GS Class race cars may pass or attempt to pass slower TCR traffic at anytime, anywhere on track, so long as it can be done cleanly, safely, and without incident.

**Contact must be avoided at all times. (Pick your spots and set up to pass in the safest and easiest places such as straightaways whenever possible.)
***Under no circumstance should a GS car barge, push, or bump harass a TCR car out of the way.
****Flashing headlights are acceptable to signal an attempt to pass is eminent.


TCR Class Rules
TCR cars racing alone or outside of 1 second of a same class car, the following pertains:
*Never block or hold up a faster GS Class car for any reason in this circumstance.
(TCR Drivers are encouraged to simply hold/maintain their line...no need to lift)
**If/when headlights flashed or approached by a GS car, yield the position as safely and as soon as possible as stated below:
a.) When yielding on a straightaway, GENTLY pull off the racing line and let the approaching GS Car(s) pass safely.
(Not required to lift)
b.) When being approached by a GS car at the entry of a corner, mid corner, or corner exit: do not make any sudden or abrupt changes in your racing line. Simply hold your line.

TCR Class Cars engaged in close quarters battle (side by side or within 1 second of a same class car), the follow pertains:
*TCR Class drivers are encouraged to race and battle hard for their positions, therefore they are not required to yield position to advancing GS cars in any way.
(Flashing headlights from a GS car is to be interpreted as a warning that a pass attempt is coming). NO NEED TO YIELD, but DO NOT BLOCK)

*
Example scenarios:
-Example 1 (in corner)
2 TCR cars engaged in a battle going through any part of a corner and being approached by 2 battling GS Cars:
*Race your race and maintain your lines through the corner, but just be aware of their attempts and place on track.
(GS cars may pass, but must do so cleanly and safely, avoiding contact)
Example 2 (Straight away)
Battling TCR cars may choose any line into, through, or on the exit of any corner. Once onto the straight away and drag racing or drafting:
* TCR cars may still choose their desired line
(allowed 1 racing move per normal rules), again, being aware of advancing GS cars.
**As it is not required, it is encouraged that battling TCR drivers maintain their racing line, or even race off the racing line on a straight away to allow the faster GS cars an easy pass while still being able race.
(Better to let them get by so the focus can be on your in-class battle)
***If in doubt, simply hold your line.

Hopefully this section has given some definition to cross classing passing situations.
If any drivers have questions in any way, please ask and get clarification before the season starts. Better to have clear insights than not be sure.
Yellow Flag/Cautions Process
Since this series will be a (2) 40 minute race format, we will be instituting a "Called Caution/Yellow Flag" feature to regroup the field in the event of an incident. (1 Caution available for each Race)
The following processes and rules will apply:
1.) ALL Drivers must enter and remain in the 16 driver party chat whether they have a Mic or not. (Chat audio will come through your monitor/tv for those without a headset.)
2.) Mics must be muted at all times, Except:
a.) When a driver verbally requests a caution/yellow flag, or
b.) When the Host/Race Director grants and calls the "Full Course Caution", or directions during Caution (Green this lap, etc)

*NO OTHER VERBAL CONVERSATION IS ALLOWED DURING THE RACE*
3.) Drivers should continue racing until the Host/Race Director verbally calls out:
"Full Course Caution"
4.) Single Car accidents or "off-tracks" are not permitted to request a Caution at any time. (This can be cause for distraction and will be met with a penalty assessed post race)
5.) At least (2) Drivers of any size incident must request a Caution for it to be issued.
6.) ALL drivers must slow to 65-70 mph, single file, and avoid any contact with other cars.
7.) A maximum of (1) Cautions/Yellow Flags per Race will be afforded. (If there are incidents after a caution was granted, we will stay Green Flag.)
8.) NO PIT STOP. This is a regrouping caution only.
9.) The Caution period will be the remainder of the lap when the Caution was granted and 1 complete lap.

How to Call for a Caution:
(At least (2) Drivers of any size incident must request a Caution for it to be issued.)
1.) Verbally over Mic, say: "Caution Requested, by (your name)"
OR:
if No Mic, text in the chat box: "cr" or "Caution"
(If no response from the Host/Race Director within 10 seconds, request again)

2.) Host/Race Director will respond:
"Full Course Caution" when acknowledged.
(Drivers should continue to race until the Caution is acknowledged and issued)

Play by Play Process during a "Full Course Caution"
Once "Full Course Caution" is called:
1.) The Overall race leader becomes our pace car and is to gently slow to 65-70 mph, with all drivers catching up and slowing to the 65-70 mph pace speed, single file and in the position they were in when the Caution was issued
2.) Overall Race Leader is to pace the field for the remainder of the lap when the Caution was issued and 1 complete lap.
3.) All drivers are expected to be grouped up by the start of the final sector during the complete lap.
(Race Director will announce "Track Green at Starting Line"
4.) At the end of the "complete" lap, exiting the final corner, the leader will maintain the 65-70mph pace speed and all drivers should be ready on approach to the start/finish line.
5.) Track is back to Green Flag when the leading car clears the start/finish line.

SPECIAL NOTE:
In the event a Caution is requested and granted, and the Classes are not yet mixed together, the leader of each class will bring their respective class to pace speed 70mph. The leader of the GS Class will be directed to maintain a gap close to that of when the Caution was called and may be asked by the race director to slow the GS Class if too close to the TCR to create an additional gap before the restart. All special directions will be made over the party chat.

5.) Penalty Reporting and Information Hub

Drivers may file incidents after the last race on Friday race night to Monday at 11:59pm est of the same weekend.

Penalty filing instructions
-Submit your incident(s) by filing via pm to the Chief Steward, all supporting stewards, and the offending driver by including the information listed below.
List of Stewards and Volunteers
II-NOVA-II (Chief Steward)
(Steward)
(Steward)
(Steward)

Incident filing PM's must include the following in this order for each incident to be accepted:
*Tag: Stewards and Driver you are filing against
*Conversation Title: "Your PSN ID": IR filed against "PSN ID of driver you are filing on"
*Include the following information in the report:

-PSN name of the driver being filed against
-Your PSN name
-Race Number the incident occurred (Race 1,2,3)
-the lap number that the incident occurred
-the time the incident occurred (Use time posted in the middle of the screen)
-description of the incident being filed

(Multiple offenses filed on the same driver may be included in the same group PM)


The offending driver may plead his/her side within the group pm by 8pm est Monday, 10 days after the night Raced.

After the 1 week rebuttle period has ended,(Monday 8pm of Race weekend to the following Monday at 8pm) the Chief Steward and/or any support stewards will review all incidents filed and submit a ruling in the respective incident group pm by 6pm Friday of the next race event.


UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD AN INCIDENT BE FILED OR DISCUSSED IN THE MAIN THREAD, IN RACE, OR THE INGAME LOBBY. IF THIS OCCURS, A MANDATORY UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT PENALTY OF UP TO 50 POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE SEASON'S TOTAL, AND POSSIBLY A 2 EVENT SUSPENSION FROM THE SERIES AT THE STEWARD's DECISION AND DISCRETION

The Stewards will be utilizing the penalty guidelines set up and used within the Snail Spec Racing Series. Follow the link below for:
Penalty judging Guidlines
https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/snail-olr-policies-and-guidelines.332619/#post-12630811


All Stewards are to review a replay of an incident in question and reply to the PM with their opinion as to what "Level" the incident falls under, and a recommended point value within selected level to deduct.
*The Chief Steward will make a final review of all incidents filed, taking into account any rebuttals and the other Steward's grading of the incidents and will make a final ruling for issuing penalty points.

**Please Note: If the Chief Steward deems, in any way, the lead driver lost control, and the chase driver attempts to brake or evade, but still makes contact, no penalty may be issued at the Chief Steward's discretion. **

At a 10 week season's end, the results sheet will be reviewed for each driver. All repeat offenders of the rules of this league will be reviewed by the Chief Steward and Steward Corp on a severity and case by case basis. If the review reflects a consistency or lack of improvement, the Chief Steward may recommend removal from the series by a peer to peer judgement .

Penalty points will be shown in the Overall Season Standings Scoresheet and will be deducted from the event score it was recieved and from following event scores until cleared.
This series will be adhering to the following linked OLR and good racecraft guidelines when deciding fault for any reported incidents.
https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/snail-olr-policies-and-guidelines.332619/#post-12630786. **
**Note: Disregard Snail OLR, Section 14: "Incident Reporting Instructions". This Series will have it's own Reporting policy and Instructions in the tabs below**

Test and Tune
Friday, March 27th
10:15pm est
Tomorrow night at 10:15pm, a Test and tune session will be open to all drivers who might be interested in the series. We will be running at the Nurburgring GP Circuit, 1700 tod for anyone who would like to get some private car testing done.
For those looking to attend, pick 1 car to use for the evening...it can be your primary choice or just one you would like to try out. Set the initial BOP regulations shown in the SPOILER box below to your car, and apply a tune if you like.

Once in the room, all drivers will be setting laps. Try to post your best lap. After about a 15-20 minute open lapping session, I will message driver groups based on observed pace, requesting each group to adjust their hp/wgt % as needed. These Bop regulation adjustments will bring us all closer to parity to give us some decent racing and idea and feel of the series.
This is a multi Class series. I expect the GS class to fill up quickly, so it could be a good time to try on a TCR class car.
Once all driver regs are verified, we will run a race or two.
In the first SPOILER box is the list of remaining cars available:

10 Primary GS Class gird spots available
GS Class (with base BOP regulations)
Aston Martin Vantage Gr4 (TAKEN)
387hp (97%)
2976lbs (100%)

Gotta work on my Audi tonight, wont be on until around 9pm west coast time. (Who puts a knock sensor UNDER the intake?!) Hopefully I can catch the room still open! If not, I'll open up an unofficial testing room and run some laps. Super excited for this series!!

I stopped liking Audis when I went to do pads on a friends A8 and found out you needed a computer to back off the caliper pistons. Too hi tech for me. I'll stick with a basic, easy to work on Chevy.;)

How soon will you know the dates of the races? I would like to join and commit, however, my work schedule has me working every second Friday and I would hate to take a car choice away from someone and have to bow out later.

Not quite sure yet on exact dates. Schedule is still up in the air but if I had to give a guess, I always tried to avoid the Friday before every 2nd Snail Sunday of each month. So going with that, it would be the Friday before the first scheduled Snail Sunday of each month and the Friday before the 3rd Snail Sunday. Whether we run once per month or twice depends on interst in a season 2 of the Porsche series

Hahaha that's to ridiculous. It's a '98, so my headache is the emission system and vacuum lines 🤬 But, this is why I'm not a mechanic, so I can enjoy doing this at home. Kind of zen, ya know?

Attention to All Interested Drivers:

After running a good multi class test night with some decent battles running in pockets, I would like to announce that instead of running (2) 30 minute races, we will be running (1) 80 minute race. With the series being Multi-Class, and the intent on getting the classes to become traffic for each other, an 80 minute race seems to be the only way to make that happen. Even with pit stops, a 30 minute race just will not present an opportunity to mix up the classes into traffic scenarios. The first post has been changed to reflect, and the scoring format will be adjusted to accommodate for the change as well. Get those car choices ready, and I'll be waiting for your entries on Wednesday:cheers:

Ain't that some elitist crap! :lol::cheers:

I'm greatly looking forward to getting to race as much of this as possible. A little peek behind the curtain, I had this same series in mind for if I wanted to make a GT4 series. It's been in the back of my mind for awhile now. I enjoy taking inspiration from real world racing and we have a significant amount of the cars required plus numerous replica liveries already available if people wanted to use those instead of making their own. Clean Racer came out with his GT4 Championship and I put my own GT4 idea back in the drawer. It's good to see someone else had the exact same idea!

Nova, I just wish you had more nights available to race so we could enjoy more of this stuff!

Ain't that some elitist crap! :cheers:

I'm greatly looking forward to getting to race as much of this as possible. A little peek behind the curtain, I had this same series in mind for if I wanted to make a GT4 series.

Thanks for the insight and thoughts. You have no idea how much I wish I had more nights available to race. I see some of these series going on during the week and really would like to be able to take part...unfortunately 2nd shift work schedule just doesn't let that happen. I'm just glad that the series we have had a chance to run on my open Friday nights have been so well recieved.
