    Welcome to the Sign-up And Rules & Regulations thread of the TNGTC!

    Every driver is expected to have read these rules, because they safeguard the quality and driving standard of the league. We have tried to provide a clear and relatively short set of rules that cover most of the situations in which the organizers, teams and drivers can get involved in.

    nah, would rather be full time rather than reserve. Might just have to adjust the highlights to actual highlights, like 5-7 minute sort of length. I have ideas don't you worry :)
