Given the circumstances of this league and some of the things that have happened in season one, it has become apparent that some changes need to be made to improve the quality of racing and to improve the reputation of this league. Below is an outline of the issues at present, how the rest of the season is going to work, and the expectations going forward.

A) Incidents on track

The amount of contact, corner cutting, track extending, and recklessness on track is unacceptable. Going forward, the stewards will be myself, @Regamus and @SavageSnailx69x. All three of us will be reviewing races and administering penalties and punishments consistent with those in the Modern GT League. The tolerance for first turn incidents, reckless aggression, and general disrespect of other racers on track will be effectively zero. The quality of racing HAS to be cleaned up, and the only way to do this is to hold drivers to a higher standard going forward. This isn't to say that mistakes are unacceptable and will be automatically punished. It means that you are expected to follow the rules of the league. If you cause an accident, wait for those affected.

B) Cars

This has been an issue of contention for the entire season. Going forward, there will be one car used for the remainder of the season, that being the Mercedes tuned by me. The reason here is that it is by far the easiest car to drive and control on the track. @matt212, myself, @Regamus, @ElseCrib and @VN7 GT will start working on ideas for next season in terms of cars. Once we have an acceptable list of ideas, the league may vote on which cars will be used in the event of a second season.

C) Tracks

This season is going to be shortened for certain. The amount of races that will be excluded has yet to be determined. The totality of the season may be as short as 10 weeks or as long as 12. Additionally, the remaining tracks may be altered as necessary.

D) Teams

Effective immediately, the team championship is over. The lack of cars going forward renders team standings meaningless.

E) Next Season

Basically, the rest of this season is going to be spent improving on what has been learned in the first seven weeks and working towards a better league next season.

Thats pretty much it. I wouldn't be here assisting with this if I didn't think this league had some potential, but the conduct on track to this point has been beyond unacceptable, and the only way to improve this is to make some changes. If you have questions or comments, make them below.

I'm open to discussing this or hearing suggestions, but the conduct on the race track had to be addressed, and its my opinion (and that of others) that this is the best way to improve things.

@Keithn222 understandable, but the issue of car balance had to be addressed. The fact is that testing should have been done on these cars prior to the season to make sure they were balanced, and at this point its too late to make a serious effort to get the cars balanced before the season is over.

it's petty that we have to change car now.. but i understand you.. we can do it like this for the rest of the season in my opinion... and for the next season we should really plan and check all the cars..
