    HOUSE RULES! Run the race at your track however you want to.
    Points assigned to winner of each race meeting toward placement in series will be 10 for winner, 8 for second, 6 for 3rd, then 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Any present racer earns no less than 1 point.
    Series will consist of ten races, twice at each track in the group.
    There will be one "take out" for the series championship. If you miss a race, that will be your take-out. Otherwise, lowest of earned points will be removed at the end of the series to determine final placement for the series.

      Greg, have you considered allowing the GT cars in the mix to give more variety?

        Not until now, and now it's a bit late as we all have DTM cars.
        However, that brings up the question... do DTM cars ever share the track with GT cars in an official race? I thought DTM was a class that tended to race on its own.
