So welcome back everyone! Lets make sure we get the managers here firstly
@Jimlaad43 @kedy89 @Lesley Buurlage @mystaaRS @William Néron @Márk Lintner @miki2000milos @Steven Poirier @Tomas Ochlsager @XenForo
Hey guys, now what I am looking for from you guys is to announce your teams and carshapes one last time here if you can, just to confirm with me I have everything. Also, you can either post here, or PM to me your contracts to drivers. Note that if you don't send them before the pre-season test, I can't allow you or your drivers to buy anything until you send them to me, so do get them in.

The pre-season test will not be televised, but I am planning on having a pre-season video showing off the new cars.

EDIT: Also please include team nationality and commercial name if possible. If you don't have/want a commercial name, just the name of the team is fine, with or without engine maker

point of the video is that it doubles as not just seeing the cars on track, but I will commentate the expectations analysis (thats the word I wanted) of each team, instead of having to write it out.

@Aidan Keranen: will the engine values be revealed before the test?

Confirming the BRT entry. Names and nationality the same as last season, so BRT/BRT-Lamborghini/German.
Drivers @Diehl and @Benutzername

Original car:
Chassis: Williams FW18
Authors: soulbringer & kedy89
The engine values are revealed at the test, the marketplace opens after that. So then teams and drivers can see what their car is like before committing down any one pathway.

As there's no reward or anything like that for the pre-season test it should be fine if I reveal the contract details after the engine values are announced, is that correct?

Yeah, the only reason to send them to me beforehand is if you want to make buys straight after the session is completed. If it makes no difference, then by all means wait for afterwards. But I need to get them at some stage, otherwise no buys at all :laugh::cautious:

I kind of expected that you need them at some point, so that we can make our buys :laugh:

Will send you the infos as soon as I know the engine values then.
