Hey guys,

In case you didn't see the email sent out this Sunday we are combining both the Elite and Amateur series into one race session. This is due to not getting enough sign ups for both divisions. We apologize for the last minute change but we hope that this will keep the grids full during the entire season and avoid having only 10 or so drivers left at the end of the season. We will keep separate championship scoring for each division so even though you will be in the same race as the amateur drivers you will not really be competing against them.


Just to clarify how the points will work with the two divisions. The two classes will be scored completely separate. So the top finishing amateur driver will always score 35 points (even if his overall finishing position was 5th), the second highest amateur will score 33 points, and so on. Same thing for the Elite drivers, any amateur driver in front of you will not take any point away from your championship. Also we are going to add an "AM-" or a "PRO-" before each drivers name in the race so that you can easily figure out who's in what class during the race.

Last thing to note, team sign ups and league invites in iracing will be open by this Friday. It's going to be a little bit messy as far as car numbers are concerned because we are merging the two divisions in one session and I'm guessing there will be a few duplicate numbers. I'll do the best I can to get you the number you signed up with but there is no guarantee. It's going to be a pretty large field to start the season (~45 drivers) but should be a lot of fun.

If you have any questions please PM myself, Matt, or anyone in PRL management.
Hope to see you guys next week!
Owen

Hi all,

Invites to the iracing league page have been sent. Please check your league invites even if you were in the league last year and make sure you are still signed up.

So, let me see if I understand this correctly. You haven’t filled up this series, but without sending any email communication reminding non-paying drivers that they need to pay, you’ve excluded us with no notice. This includes the drivers from the first and third place teams last season... 
I’ve found out from a teammate on discord, not even from the league staff. I’m a premium member and having run in at least 4 championships with you guys I’ve gotten a reminder to pay in 3 of them, including last season in this very series!
Get serious guys, you can’t run a successful league pulling this kinda stuff. The series isn’t full, what’s the logic behind not letting us pay and race on Thursday?

Even if all drivers would have paid, we wouldn't have had enough drivers for the season. Last season we had 30+ drivers who have paid and there was less than 15 drivers on the last race. Our goal is to have more than 20 drivers on the grid for broadcasted event. What happened last season was concerning, and we needed to do something. We have still try to create separate series one last time, to see if we would get more signups, but we did not :(

We are not sending email to drivers who have not paid, we rather send PM on iRacing forum (from your organisers). Last reminder was sent on Sept. 10th and you signed up on Sept. 13th. We will not send reminder to drivers who don't pay every day... we are have a life... It's simply a courtesy to send that reminder, we are not force to, and no where it's indicated that we will do that.

A few important points:

- Owen reminded in this email thread two times about entry fee (Sept. 10 and 16)
- In this thread it's indicated: You will be removed from the driver list of you haven't paid a week prior the season start
- There is no special treatment for drivers who finish in the top of the last season championships

Like you mentioned, you are a veteran... You know the rules... We have sent email in August to all PRL database about new series and you only signed up 4 days before we close them... Every season you raced with us you had to pay... why do we have to remind you every season? You know that you have to pay. So I'm sorry, but it's your own responsibility to make sure you meant the league criteria to be eligible to race.

If found this comment quite insulting. Our management team put countless of hours to organise and develop this league. We are all doing that on a voluntary basis, no one is paid here. I don't know if anyone notice, but me and Darklol (co-owner) haven't race since 6 months! This is due to the fact that we setup a new forum to bring a new experience to our members. Not serious enough for you?


On a positive note, I can give a few spoiler on our new forum that will come within the next 2 seasons:

- Drivers will be FORCE to pay before registration to a series
- Better communication system to easily send email to all members of the series

I think I've said enough... Everything was in place here so you know to what you expose yourself by not paying... Everything is written in that thread with specific timeline. Why I don't allow you to still join? Because if I'm doing that, I will be opening a can of worm and receive ton of message from drivers who have been removed like you. Those drivers BTW, did understand that it's their own fault to not have paid before the timeline. So to keep integrity of this league, we put specific timeline/rules and we stick with it no matter what's your driver status. This is what a SERIOUS league do. We give you all the info needed here so you can respect criteria to be eligible.

If you want to discuss further, please PM me. 

Hope to see you next season.

Jerome, please direct me towards documentation how to drop from this Indy Pro league. The fact that you guys are being unreasonable about this when there's spots still available, while in the same breath saying you had trouble with getting enough people to sign up, leaves a really bad taste in my mouth. And if my team can't participate I will not be either.
