Time to do the sign-up for the Ginetta Series. This one is using the Ginetta G40's which can give close racing... or really punish you for a mistake. Here's hoping for more of the former, and less of the latter. The series will use exclusively British tracks to mimic the real Ginetta Juniors, however you don't have to be under 18 to take part - even old gits like smokin can enter
As usual, racing will be at 9pm on Sundays.
The car will be the Ginetta G40 Junior. You may use any tune you like.

As we're looking like still being low on players, I'm going to go with the F1 points system of a few years ago. This system applies for the entire series:
1st: 10 points
2nd: 8 points
3rd: 6 points
4th: 5 points
5th: 4 points
6th: 3 points
7th: 2 points
8th: 1 points
Please only sign on if you have the intention of racing.
SOME RULES AND GUIDELINES FOR ALL
Here is a guide to sorting out your lobbies as fast as possible when connection problems are evident.
Connection Issues - What to do - Please read
In the race:
If a crash happens on lap 1 affecting 3 or more drivers then please call out that an accident has happened. The host will call a restart and everyone can quit to the lobby once the host confirms the restart. Quit before at your own peril
If during the race there is an incident involving 4 cars the host may call for a safety car procedure to be used. This will involve the lead driver slowing down to a speed that allows the other drivers to catch back up, and the field to therefore re-group. ONLY the host can call this and it should only be used in exceptional circumstances. During a safety car phase drivers are not allowed to overtake but can pit in to change tyres/fix damage.
All drivers need to make sure they have signed the racing etiquette thread otherwise you can’t race.
Can all Drivers NOTE: 2 wheels to remain on the tarmac at all times (unless you go into the litter ) a minor off maybe noted as racing but no gain is to had either in time or places. If you cut corners over and over expect a penalty, you have been warned. If you suspect or see corner cutting, report it to Smokin, Stewards or even other Mods. Save a replay and note time, place and who.
All aids will be allowed other auto brakes.
I'm sure there's something else I've forgotten, so if you think of it just remind me below.
Thanks and clean racing.
