Welcome back RDMC 2020!

Still stuck on these continental rotating shifts so can only do 2 out of 4 events. If there is a "spot fill sign up list," I'll sign up for that!

I think you need to contact Bram via the link in the OP, so that he can add you to the RaceDepartment SGP community. I've had to do that myself as I can only join the official SGP events at the moment.
