Really sorry but I'm not going to make it to night I'm coming down with a flu bug and feel terrible, sorry for the late message but I've been a sleep for the past 2 hours in the hope I might have felt better.

Thanks for the race guys. Luckily I could actually perform well in this race. Though my race got completely ruined by someone causing me 106 seconds worth of damage to fix. Thanks for the event. Hope to see you guys in the future <3

What a race!!! it was unbeliable. I did everything I had to do, but I was unlucky this time and a code80 was launched after I did my pit stop, so there were 3 or 4 cars who went in front of me by doing their pit stop during the code80.

It looked like all was over, but I am one of those who never give up and I have enough experience to know that everything can happen because it's not over till it's over.

I could recover about 15 seconds to Paolo, who was 33 seconds in front of me after the code80. And finally, in the last 5 mins, the miracle happened and he ran out of fuel, so he had to do another pit stop.

I am super happy, 2 races, 2 poles and 2 victories.

Thank you for making all of this possible.

This race was better than the last one for me. Thanks to the admins and the rest of the drivers for it. Most drivers are respectfull when lapping or being lapped, but some people need to stay calm and dont get scared by the speed diference, just dont try to move out of the way guys. But in general people have a good behaviour and racing etiquette, thank you all!

Hi, I had 2 Indy sanctions, you only sanctioned me for the Stop & Go in Nola, I thought they would apply both, but it was not like that, any problem?
Still I see that I did not get the license 4 :(, I will try again and I will avoid mistakes with "Code 80".
Thank you very much and see you in the next SRCA race.

Good evening, I write to emphasize that I have not received the license of S25, but this license has been granted to pilots who have committed violations according to you serious, type being pit lane blend lines.
I would be grateful if you could get explanations on this issue.
Thank you

I tried twice to get this license shit, 4 races without incidents and points with a serious and respectful conduct of everything and everyone, on 8 cod80 I was wrong only once because I had forgotten to turn on the sound on the headphones (which I proceeded to settle in the pit) and also this time no license for the vec. The list of insults I have against you is very long and you should cancel the site before it starts. I only say that the way you operate is devoid of sense and respect, you see from the huge amount of accidents in your races that the selection system you have created is meaningless, you have pilots who are careful not to cut a fucking white line and then slaughter on the track ... seriously trying to select your riders? you should evaluate something else if you want serious people on the track. Four evenings thrown behind shit site, no more foot here, I tried again only for my friends who needed me for the vec because if it was for me after the last time I had already gone .... but so much for you here we are just numbers ... you get rid of the commitment and the time we dedicate to you

You are entitled to have your own oppinion but I will disagree with your last point. The drivers have never been only numbers to me. I think everyone who asked me about SRCA has always gotten an answer. It may not have been elaborate, depending on the time I had at hands, but I always considered it and still do.
I think about requests, I cannot grant everyone of these requests but I try to offer solutions to each driver approaching me individually.

I have also always tried to come up with ideas on how to make SRCA more fair and improve it which we then discussed with the SRCA staff. We introduced multiclass, switched season lengths, tried to improve the sign ups and more. That's all stuff that you don't necessarily realize. With the short seasons the requirements for getting L4 became more strict so I drastically reduced the severity of the penalties I assign so no one would lose L4 due to one small mistake.

Drivers are not numbers but we are here to judge whether the performance of drivers and their knowledge of rules in particular is on the level that is required in VEC and VLMS. The requirements are strict but they are the same for everyone.

To be honest I just chose not to because results are irrelevant and I already knew you could not get the license. I thought you were punished enough already and 2 penalties tend to confuse people so I only assigned the more severe penalty.

Code 80 violations and pit blend line violations are equally severe because they show lack of knowledge of the rules. No one who cut the pit blend line twice has received L4. Why would we rate your 60sec for code 80 violations less severe than one DT someone got for pit blend line violations?

Of course the 60 sec stop and hold are more severe than 1 DT

Good evening Florian Koetz, I can agree on being stiffer, but Ciro in the 4 races has committed small errors more than inattention and misfortune than lack of skill, in fact in 4 races not even an accident, always correct on the track. I think that the first thing to evaluate is how much a driver is good at managing the various race situations and that does not create too many casinos.You can not exclude a pilot because it cuts the box line and for a code80 that has been committed for a problem with the headphones that promptly settled despite the race demonstrating a cold blood to envy. also it is also absurd not to grant the license since Cyrus has already run the vec without even in that case create problems, I think a curriculum as good as his is more important than cutting the line. Thank you for your attention and sorry for the bad english.

I assumed that they would not give it to me because of my lack of pace, since I made some bad adjustments, but the two penalties for the pit line congratulate the teammates and the srca, next year more.

Licenses are not subject to negotation.

I have explained it before and will explain it again, SRCA cannot filter out drivers who crash a lot. How are we supposed to find out who is prone to crashing in 2 races? Right, we can't.
We are here to check if people are familiar with the rules, with code 80s and pit blend lines in particular.

If someone is not an obvious danger on track we have to consider him for L4. So not crashing is not really an achievement but an expectation when it comes to licenses.

Code 80s and pit blend lines are vital in VEC and therefor we have to make sure people know what they are doing.
Right now with one DT and a warning you still get L4. So not more than one minor mistake every 2nd race is the requirement for L4. Who tells us that whoever manages to make 2 mistakes regarding c80 and pit blend lines in one season won't do it in VEC? No one, on the contrary we should even expect them to do the same thing.
In VEC these drivers would breach the rules 2 times within 3 racing hours. That is simply not sufficient. You are expected to be consistent, you are expected to know the rules and you are expected to be able to only breach the rules slightly once every 3 racing hours.

I cannot understand how anyone unable to be consistent enough to stay mistake free for at least 1.5h on average can even expect to get L4 (only talking about "mistakes" as in breaching rules)

Code 80s and pit blend lines are not hard to understand either. In the briefing I spend 3 min talking about both rules, explaining them so I don't see where anyone can claim that we are unfair.

I have understood and in NOLA I have solved the problems. I will sign up for season 26 if I arrive on time and I will comply better with the rules.
