    Vehicle Choice
    Drivers do not have to have already chosen their vehicle for the Test Event. Drivers must choose their League vehicle for Round 1 by 20.00 GMT, Thursday 21st February 2013. Any driver with a vehicle not specified by this time will not be allowed to participate in Round 1. After Round 1, the cut off time for signing up and being allowed to race is the Thursday before the race.

    Once you have selected your vehicle for the season during the sign up process, you must drive that vehicle - and no other - at all times on League servers. You are not allowed to change vehicles once you have selected one in the sign up thread.

    Each driver must use a unique car skin, and I will again be producing skinpacks for all competitors, adding any new skins into the existing packs for the relevant vehicles.

    A driver can select his livery in a number of ways:-
    1. Select one of the default liveries, or from the pre-existing skinpack for the vehicle (if it exists)
    2. Create their own livery, and send the body + windows files to the Race Direction & Paint Team for inclusion
    3. Ask for a personal livery to be created by the Race Direction & Paint Team (time dependent).

    If a driver does not express a preference for a skin at sign-up time, the skin he uses in his first race will be his skin he will be allocated a skin randomly for the car selected.

    There is no restriction on people selecting the same vehicle, but if all default skins are already taken for the chosen vehicle, the driver will need to create a skin or apply to the Paint Team for one to be created for inclusion into the skinpacks.

    If a number has already been chosen by someone else, you may not specify a skin that uses that same number. You may not use team logos on your skin. You may not have a similar skin to another driver to reflect team affiliation.

    The Official Testing event is not classed as a League event, but if a driver has already selected his car in the sign up thread, he cannot change that vehicle for League events, irrespective of the results of further testing.

    Deadline for requesting Paint Team created liveries in time for Race 0 (Test event): 24.00GMT Wednesday 16th January 2013.

    Deadline for supplying user created liveries in time for Race 0 (Test event): 24.00GMT Wednesday 23rd January 2013.

    Thereafter, if people are joining later in the season, they must supply a driver or Paint Team created skin to Race Direction & Paint Team by 24.00GMT on the Wednesday before the race. If they are using a default skin (if available), the time restriction will not apply.

    Please sign up using the following format in the sign up thread (when created and open):
    Driver: Jeremy Clarkson
    Vehicle: Ford Granada
    Car#: 666 / "no preference"
    Livery: Default / user created / request via PM

    As with the previous RDHCS, discussion of test laptimes - actual or relative - is NOT permitted in any RD threads. The not knowing before turning up and seeing what people are actually doing, and then comparing to your own times, was commented on by several RDHCS drivers as an entirely positive thing.

    If the numbers go over the 30 driver per track limit, people who regularly attend Historic Racing club events will get the nod ahead of new drivers. I'm sorry if you lose out, but that is the harsh reality of the limit.

    Attendance Reporting
    We will stay with the current procedure whereby I inform all signed up drivers of the Round-specific password, provide an Attendance Reporting thread/post where drivers indicate their status by a "like" to signify attendance, or by a post to indicate some other status.

    Races are run at 20.00 UK time on a Tuesday evening - taking BST/GMT into account. If a driver is allocated as "will participate", or has not allocated by 2 hours before event start, ie 18.00 UK on a race day, "will participate" is judged to be their status for that race. A no-show is one infraction.

    You are allowed 1 infraction, and then the next infraction will result in expulsion from League without any recourse for appeal. 2 No-Shows through the course of the season will result in removal from the League.

    Anyone with a "will participate" allocation who doesn't show, but is found to be participating in another event will be immediately expelled from the League without any recourse for appeal.

    Expulsion from the League will result in possible exclusions from future GTL Club & League events.

    Resigning from the League
    If anyone decides to pull out of the League, they must do so publicly by posting in the Sign-Up thread, and from that point on I will remove them from the league.

    OK - We will re-run the Test Event in 2 weeks time, to allow me to sort out pre-packed League archives (1 containing all cars, the other containing tracks), check them and test it out.

    I'm doing this because it seems like there were some (too many) people who were having issues with installs, extractions, locations etc. and causing total chaos. I will also be attempting to move the Escort & Alfa into the GTC65 Folder and Class, to keep the server def as simple as possible.

    We will be asking you to create a new or fresh install of GTL (purely default install + all vehicles patch) to keep this nice and clean - there are no problems with multiple installs of GTL, lots of us keep a Club and League install side by side on our PCs.

    All subsequent races have been moved out by 2 weeks to allow for this, and is reflected in the schedule above.

    Please "Like" this post to signify you have read and understood the above.
