I'd like to put myself forward as a driver :thumbsup:

I would put a team together myself but don't have the time to do so and sustain the effort at the moment, but hopefully my performances in the GP4 Career series are enough to get me a seat :roflmao:

Edit: I have already joined a team, announcement due in a few days.

I announce myself as an available driver. My only requirement in contract negotiations is that my car has to have some yellow (more the better!) on it. :p
I can also bring aboard my own sponsor. :D

You don't need to say your driver to me, only directly before the race if you are going to drive. colours yellow/green?

Numbers for teams are announced in opening post, anyone who has mistakenly gone ahead without knowing their numbers will have to head back and change them.

Teams, you may speak to drivers, and drivers can sign if they really want to, otherwise wait until every team has been confirmed before making any signings/announcing any signings. Same for engines, you can go ahead and announce them, but you don't need to right now.
