Many of you have an idea, but some only want to race, of what is involved in preparing for a new season.
prefer an email response please.

in order to get things organized, i need to know:
1. do you intend to race in season 23?
2. would you like to be a Team Leader?
3. can you commit to a min of 12 races?
4. do you prefer to race as a privateer (and do you understand the limitations if so)

the sooner i get your answers, the more quickly i can put s23 together.
one of the most difficult items to prepare is also what keeps oAo - that is
>>> BALANCE of competition
in order to achieve that balance, i must know who intends to race so i know how many drivers to place in each division!

it does no one any good for me to guess and then end up with 35 drivers in one division and 15 in the other :P

i would like to know your intentions by Sunday (1 Dec)  is there really any reason NOT to know?
question #1 is Yes/No
#2 might take some thinking
#3 again, how can any of us know for sure - but give it your best guess
#4 if you don't know the limitations - they are simple - if all team drivers show up, there will be only 1 spot available for 1 privateer - that privateer is who ever is lowest in standings after race 1

ok? clear? questions?
i would REALLY like to get the league set up for s23.. then really enjoy a break :D (that's a hint)

1: Yes
2: No
3:As many as possible. Prior commitments and real life sometimes get in the way.  GPL is not the only sim racing I do.
4: If I'm not chosen for a team, it's the way to go.  ;-)

Thank you Bruce for keeping GPL alive.  Thanks to everyone in oAo. You all are the best. I enjoy knowing you and racing with you.

It's been expressed in email, but let it be expressed here - Bo, thank you SO much for what you do to run this league. Isn't it amazing that we can have the fantasy of racing our favourite GP cars against people all over the world.  Thank you once again, you are a legend! :D
