We changed some about the licenses, that counts on the VEC drivers, which can be found in the first post

Required license:
To be able to sign up a team (only as manager) you do not need a license Drivers however must have at least L4 - and each team must NOT have more than 1 VEC Div 1 driver signed up.

That means that every driver in VEC Div 2 or 3 is allowd to drive in VLMS, together with other drivers from Div 2 or 3

We established a team including 3 L4 drivers. We have another two drivers showing interest to participate in our team. One of them currently driving in SRCA S11, the other one (or both:sneaky:) will sign up into SRCA S12. My question is.. are we allowed to add these two drivers to the team latter, during VLMS, when/if they get a L4?

I'm looking at my options for teammates, but how will I be able to form a team when the devisions are not final yet in the VEC for most teams. For example I think our lmp2 car in VEC has a chance at being put in div1, but they are provisionally div2. I guess an entry with one of them will be invalid if they'd be put in div1?
Thanks

An entry with 2 Div1 drivers will be invalid yes, so if this happens you will simply need to change the line up ;)

Ah that's a bit unconveniant. To sign up you need the vlms pass and in case they'll make div1, all 3 of us would need to find a team without div1 driver yet to even make use of the season pass.

Its the best we can do, we could lock the VEC divisions as we think they are close to correct, but i´d also like for teams to be able to prove themselves.
You dont NEED to have the VLMS pass right away, but well when you already have VEC season pass it is "just" 5 euros, but its up to you how you will want to do this i guess.

Raijin would've preferred to enter in P2, but as they are closed, we signed up with me in the GT and we'll confirm the rest of the line up asap.

Rule 3.3 says "Drivers may not deliberately use (team) cars to slipstream. If they do, the car will forfeit their qualification." Does that mean that it only applies to team cars or do you need to leave a gap to the car infront at all times?

We added that when 2 cars deliberately help each other on track, which means you are not allowd to slow down with a P2 to help a GT with your draft etc
