Lowline Racing Drivers,
It has been almost a year of racing since we sent out our last letter. In that time, we have had some great racing and have welcomed aboard a number of new teammates. However, for the upcoming year of racing, we do have a couple of items to cover.
First, as some of you may know we are taking a break from the B-car, in league competition, for season 1 of 2016. Instead, for this season, we are focusing on the A-car, and putting together a winning program in that series. We are running the races for the A-car in accordance with iRacing’s schedule, at our usual Sunday night timeslot (practice starts at 7p eastern, and the race starts at 9 pm eastern). However, the B-car will be back for the season opener this spring at Daytona.
Secondly, our team is larger now. It is often the case that several teammates are racing for position or even the win. When racing a teammate please race them with respect; remember that when your teammates succeed, we all succeed. For instance, when the leader gives a countdown on a restart it is intended to allow each team member an advantage over the rest of the field. The leader’s countdown should not be used in order to gain an advantage over the leader on the restart.
Finally, we are going into our second year as a donation-supported organization. While our current season is fully funded, we are looking ahead to the next year of racing. Items such as scheduling league races, our TeamSpeak server, Race points manager, etc… are a considerable expense, and our operating costs are estimated between $350, and $400 for the coming year. To run those races we will need to replenish our funding, so once again we are asking for member donations. We are asking that each member donates $10-$20 dollars to support our racing in 2016. Any members who would like to donate can visit www.lowlineracing.com/donations/ and click on our PayPal link.
