John I think there is away for yellows not to count but not sure how they do it.

I see other clubs that post a race for example: scheduled for 50 laps and they actually ran 68 laps. And one for 35 laps and they actually ran 49 laps etc... You might ask on the forums how they do it or maybe one of the guys here knows how. That also tells me that they are not finishing under yellow.

Question - I am looking to participate tonight.  Is this under leagues or just under a hosted session?  I have already signed up.  Thanks!

It will be a hosted session since this season is in a trial phase. Hop onto teamspeak before 8est and get the info.
