for this first series, being ten times bigger than we expected, it would be easier to follow the saturday only schedule so we can monitor it. If it works out really well, we may consider your suggestion for the future. We also can't dedicate our lives to running a video game series.

Amen to that. This has turned into work, not just fun! Lol, but it should be worth it. I can already tell you that I will miss the second round (assuming it's the weekend of the 21st), so organizational skills will be put to the test! We'll get it all worked out though, I don't expect the first race to go as well oiled as we hope.

The only idea I have is to designate some extra mods to keep watch over races that you (Capitol) or I aren't a part of. Like I said the other day, if we assign the polesitter as the room leader, we can have the top 8 race without giving up a spot for you or I to moderate, we can just spectate once the race starts and flip to where the action is to watch over things.

Another question. Will the qualifying time have to be a clean lap? And if it doesn't it will still have to be a legit lap (ie, two tires off going wide, but no deliberate corner cutting).

We'll be doing our best to monitor qualifying, so if we see someone deliberately (or unintentionally) cut a corner, the time will be disallowed, and the next best time will count.

It's going to be a judgement call in most cases, and we might not be able to catch all infractions, but we'll do our best. If you can manage to run through the dirt and cut time off your run, then more power to you I guess, cause there aren't many places where that's possible without bogging.

If we see it, we'll catch it, and you will be penalized. Stay on the track.

It's an online video game racing series, with no prizes or money involved, if you have to cheat at it to make yourself feel better, then you really need to rethink your life!

That being said, everyone have fun! Can't wait for tomorrow!

Sounds good. If we have a lan setup is it possible to make sure all of the people at the lan are in the same qualifying session? IE group up? We're going to have a 4 person lan tomorrow for the event.

I don't cut anywhere. Maybe clip a curb with my inside tires only, or let 2 outside tires go in the grass on an exit i overcooked.

Serious technical difficulties have brought tonight's event to a halt. We'll postpone until a later date to get all the kinks ironed out...Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you guys want to organize other races for fun, by all means go right ahead. We'll get the series up and running once we get the bugs worked out.

Well my qualifying lap sucked. Definately need 4 laps instead of 3 lol. I went from running low 38's clean before qualifying and then high, dirty 39's during lol.

I'm sure things will go smoother next event.

This is fun enough racing with people that are running the same cars, with no reason to cheat their cars. Thanks for the effort you guys are putting in.

Maybe a practice night sometime this week, running the whole qual. race... and see if it works, or any bugs that gotta be worked out still.

Thanks For all the Effort that is put in. Very Much Appreciated. Here in MN it is hard to keep up with the road racing in the winter time.
