seriously Andrew? the modern Monza? i detest what they did a fine track, adding those horrendous chicane's ... esp just before curva grande (T1) why?!  .. i know... i know 'safety'... how many crashes were there at that point anyway? ...

decides

- to hereby participate to the D2 race in Montjuich with the damaged Ferrari car, in protest of the decision,
- to not abide by the decisions the Stewards may take in reaction to such action,
- to not pay any fine caused by the aforementioned behaviour,
- to do anything in its power to not let any change in regulations pass without its approval by the other teams.

This will have effect immediately and won't be revoked until the rightful standings have been restored.

(TL;DR : IS THIS A FUCKING JOKE, BO?)

unfortunate that you feel this way Gabe... but as i stated above, before the current wording of the rules, we had other issues. its not perfect, but it is where we stand at present. as Michi said, once the green flag  falls, the rules of the day are in place.  The rules being what they are, if changed, would be met with an equal protest from those not affected.  It happens. it used to happen with regularity. we adjust, we take deep breaths and we try to improve - in this case, all the Rules have been posted online from the beginning of season 21. There for all to see and comment or make suggestions THEN.

Since you indicate a strong feeling for not following any steward ruling, attempt to race a damaged car,  which by the way, was damaged BEFORE the incident became an issue, or attempt some kind of blockage to any rule amendment (?) ...of which you have at present no control of, i see little alternative other than suggest you look for another league.

no.. i'm not excluding you from oAo. i'm SUGGESTING that your unhappiness with rules in place, might find greater happiness in a league you create and run - and maybe in a matching 20 years of running such a league you might have a little more respect and understanding of what it takes to do so.

let me know where you stand. but be assured, failure to repair a damaged chassis before racing will either double its repair costs (as clearly stated) or your driver of said car will be excluded from the results.

Per the RULES (and with all due respect to Burt, i'm not arguing the point) but i 'thought' what ever happened THEN, was 'cleaned up' with the statement below, AFTER that episode. i don't want to undo what we have, at least not NOW, as we have a rule in place.  But the bottom line is, WHO was affected and how? are we talking simply about the 'dnf'?   then i have no problem considering all that disco'd as still running, but no change in finishing order.  

from the RULES:

major disco=1/2 or more but not 'all' simultaneously disco
result:
at or after 1/2 way=results stand


RULE LOCATION:
left column of MENU... in the RED (RULES)

click there - then to the right, about 1/2 way down, the title bar reads "RACING"

that is HUGE news... for USA when 'commercial interruptions' are about normal for any broadcast.  
side note, i have some Indy 500 races that i recorded from late 80's to mid 90s' and was shocked to see only about 30sec of commercials, and then 20 minutes of racing.. now, we have maybe 10minutes of race and 4 or 5 min of commercials :yuk:
