New for the second half of the season - all success weight added is no longer required. Instead, each win will reduce the winner's HP by 4 hp. 2nd place - 3 hp, 3rd place - 2 hp. These regulations start for Twin Ring Motegi on May 24th.
There will be a success weight added to the first 3 positions after each race! 1st place will add 30 kgs, 2nd place will add 20 kgs, and 3rd will add 10 kgs of ballast to the car - you may move it wherever you like. This is an experiment to help even out the field, and might be temporary, in which case all weights will be up to you.
All drivers will race in as courteous a manner as possible. No tolerance for rough racing, poor sportsmanship or hacked cars! Offenders will get one warning; further offences will result in ejection from the lounge and disqualification. Cutting corners is also illegal - please try to keep 2 wheels on the course at all times.
In the event of an incident on-track, please allow everyone to regain their positions before continuing. Yellow flag procedures can be added if everyone wants to.
Please post your car number and paint colour in the sign up list below. Thanks!

Anyone interested, please sign up with your car colour and number; and I'll add you to the list. Races held in my lounge, so please send me an FR.
May be necessary due to the weight regulation, however: I'm not going to enforce this at first. we will use the honour system. Just be ready in case I ask you to put your car up on share so I can check your weight adjustment.
If anyone wants to post pictures, or some off-topic stuff, there's a thread for that .
That's it for now - hope to see you all on track!

sweet. like that you chose the z06 rather than the ZR-1...
I am definitely interested, but will have to wait until the date gets closer to commit toanything.
baby arriving in a few weeks so that will definitely play into this a bit
Sorry Master - yes, ABS will be allowed; I'll go fix that right now! You don't have to use it if you don't want to.........
Nice to see you, Wagg. It's been a while! I'm happy to see this getting a bit of interest; was wondering - lol!
The inauguration date is flexible; and most of us remember from SCREAM, a missed race isn't a real disaster. I'm kind of leaning away from a points scheme right now - just to keep it fun. Nothing really set in stone, yah? Should be interesting to see how much ballast it takes to ground crow. rofl
