RDSTL S1 - Absences
What is this?
This is the Absence thread of the RaceDepartment Super Touring League. Here team owners can report when one or both of their cars aren't going to enter one of the races.
Only report absent when you run out of options! Try the Matchmaking for Teams & Drivers thread before you call in absent.
A team should always try to enter both their cars. If the regular drivers cannot driver it is the duty of a team owner to see if he can get them replaced either temporarily or permanent. Keep in mind that it is in the interest of the team to enter both cars in each race so they have a good chance of scoring points and stay out of the relegation zone of the league!
Teams that often call in on of their cars as absent will eventually lose their right to start and find themselves replaced with other teams.
How to report absence?
Reply to this thread and fill in the following fields
NOTE: Only team owners may report the cars of their team absent!

We have received the new installation files for the RD GPCOS, which means our league managent system will be running shortly. Hopefully we can fix this before the first race, but possibly the results will be delayed a bit. As soon the system is running the team owners will be contacted to enter their teams into the system and the drivers will be asked to create accounts for themselves.
Good Luck & Have Fun

'Bram vs Andreas' by Andreas Löffler
'Mtommi vs Dan' by Mtommi Tam
The field stretches as the drivers approach the season's first turn...
... and lots of them find their brakes and tyres colder than expected...
Rami Kaukola and Teo Bubicic settle the score for the podium...
But that all happens way behind Peter Duivelaar, who takes the checkered flag and wins the Zhuhai 200!
The engines roar as the Division 2 drivers inpatiently wait for their formation lap to start.
Hampus Jansson finds his heart freezing as Dave Gardner loses control of his Lacetti.
Philip Antonia regains the lead and goes straight for victory. Johan Barlatier would finish third.
Antonia claims victory in the second Division with a comfortable gap to the runner up.

Warm-up: 19.40 GMT – 20 Minutes
Race: 20.00 GMT – 150, 200, or 250 Kilometer
The race has a Manual Formation Lap and a Rolling Start.
NOTE: The staff has decided to NOT change the starting time of the event after the shifting of Daylight Savin Time from the northern to the souther hemisphere. This means that for nearly all drivers the races will have a different starting time than before!
The Team Owner must sign up a team with at least two drivers. He may add two additional drivers to act as reserves or replacements during the season. A team can use a maximum of four (4) drivers per season. Each team should try to have replacements in case one of the regular drivers calls in absent for a race. A team is expected to enter both their cars in each race, regardless of such absences.
Every team that is entered by a Team Owner before the deadline will be considered by the staff. The staff decides whether a team enters Division 1, Division 2 (if any) or the Reserve List (if any). Reserves may also be entered later in the season, but the satff must always be made aware of this before the reserve goes behind the wheel.
Required Regular Drivers: 2
Maximum Reserve Drivers: 2
Deadline for Team entries: 15 August 2009
Anyone can become a Team Owner by saying he is one, creating a team, finding driver for it and signing it up.
Each team has to provide its own liveries. It is the responsibility of the Team Owner to make sure the liveries are delivered in time.
Please read the instructions in the Liveries & Painting thread before delivering the livery.
Deadline for Liveries: 15 August 2009

Promotion & Relegation
In case the number of team entries is large enough for a second room a second Division will be created for the league. When the season ends the top three teams of Division 2 will be promoted to Division 1, while the bottom three teams of Division 1 relegate to Division 2 for the next season. In case a Division 1 team that did not relegate, decides not to enter the next season more teams from Division 2 will be promoted. Any new team that enters after season 1 will automatically enter Division 2 (if a second division is present).
For Season 1 the Race Staff will divide the teams over both divisions (if two divisions are present). About the outcome there can be no communication with the Race Staff.

I quite like the Idea, and i might be interested, depends on the dates of the races though. I wonder if any of my team have any interest in it as well.
Hopefully this league will allow for teams to participate. I'm certainly interested...
EDIT: Oh, look at how incredibly stupid I just made myself look... that'll teach me not to take a peek at the main thread. :doh:
