SNAIL - No ABS Driver's Challenge Season 2 - Sign Ups Open

Welcome to the
GReddy Fugu Z
"No ABS" Drivers Challenge presented by Snail.

For all the driving purists out there that want to try their braking prowess against other drivers without the help of ABS, this vintage styled series is for you. While GTSport is not the best representation of no abs braking, the car selected specifically for this series, the GReddy Fugu Z using the Sport Soft tire compound and its modern mechanical upgrades will definitely suprise you. As is the case with all my series, this series is intended to present a challenge in line with drivers of all skill levels. If you have read this far, are interested, and want a new challenge, see the details below.

***Season 1 Complete***

Initial Starting Grid Placement Process
-Upon signing up, each driver's Kudosprime stats will be reviewed for Driver Rating (DR) and Speedscore and will be logged and displayed in the Drivers Roster Post.
-A starting grid list in the order from highest to lowest will be established for starting position of the first event.
-After the first event (or a drivers first raced event), fastest lap of previous event will be used. (In summary, a driver will be placed using DR, then Speedscore for first event, then placed using fast laps for each event thereafter unless a race is missed.)
-Any time a race event is missed, that driver will be placed behind all timed drivers based on his/her DR grouping, then Speedscore will be used if multiple drivers were absent. (This applies to Reserve drivers/newcomers/late sign ups as well)
-Attendance is rewarded by potentially affording a better starting position going into a next event.

Now that the initial placement process is established, the race night format is shown below.:

This series will be a 3 race format:

Success Ballast Feature Voting Post
Driver Priority:
First 16 drivers to sign up will be considered "Primary Drivers" for the series. They are guaranteed their entry for each event as long as they Confirm their race status by Sunday 5pm est prior to race night. Failure to confirm by the deadline will result in the spot being offered to any Reserves confirmed available. (If any spots are open after being offered to Reserves, a late confirming primary driver can re-enter for the event.
Confirmation Policy
All drivers will be tagged by the Monday before Race Night.
Primary Drivers: Required to confirm status, either way by 5pm est Sunday, to maintain their primary grid priority.
Reserve Drivers: Not Required to confirm, but bump in priority is given on a first to confirm available basis.

Drivers are encouraged and welcome to confirm their status at any time after a race event is complete up to the deadline.

Any driver who has confirmed attending, but must rescind their entry, must report in some way no later than 8:30pm est. Any No report/No shows will result in immediate forfeiture of the primary spot and be placed on the Reserve roster.

***Also, any Primary drivers who fail to confirm their status or communicate in some way before the race night is complete, or misses 3 consecutive events will forfeit their priority status and will be placed on the Reserve roster. The open spot will be awarded first based on most participation, and if equal among drivers, solicited to those drivers. First to reply among them will be awarded the vacated primary spot.***

Participation Policy
Any driver who is believed to have quit a race event prematurely without good reason will recieve an automatic 5 point penalty against their race night total. If you must leave, leave quietly, and message here in the thread what happened. If a disconnect, or a rage quit and then came back to senses, come back to the race room.
