There's should be an option to reset your vote.

I'm OK with that :P
Let's call it Ten then, and say we have a minimum to start. :woohoo:
I'll get a GB thread up and list the blurb and rules there.
We also need a second Moderator here; someone to keep me in line and awake! :P :silly: :evil: That doesn't mean you cannot join in the build, simply a second set of eyes and a brain to keep the GB Alive and Kicking over the duration of the build. B)

REMEBER - Start date is not until the 30th of this month (30th November 2015), so if anyone else would like to join in, please feel free to do so, even after the Start Flag has dropped.

Are cars built for events like Time Attack/Superlap and Targa allowed?

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Howdy Motor Racers
I have reset the Starters POLL at the top of the thread, removing the "No Thanks" option so as to get an accurate list of those who are actually turning the key on this one.
PLEASE cast you vote once again so we can get that list.
My rough calculations have 12 - 13 players here.

Thanks team.

Now there's a curly one. :P Is there any recognised National or International competition for these anywhere? If so, then in the vain of the rules for this GB, Yes these would be acceptable. :blink: :silly: :lol:

Hey Rick
Each builder/project will have its own thread under the overall GB thread. A 'finished builds' thread will be started aswell, but that's going to be later on. Just watch what everyone else does and follow-on.

HTH

Hi Rick, All you need to do is start your own thread under the Group Builds/ Built to Race main thread and call it something like GB - Built to Race: "Ricks Trans-Am"., or whatever it is you're building. :P
As Ian has suggested, just follow what others do. Remember that start is not until the 30th, although you could post Box shot and sprue shots prior to kicking off, just don't post cut plastic until the 30th and beyond.
The Main Group Build thread is Live as is the "Completed Builds thread. Just click on the Index Tab and go to the Group Builds thread/ Built to Race . . .
We look forward to watching what comes from your bench on this Build. :)

Cheers
David

The only other time I have done a KM GB a image was given out on the start date.

This image was to be printed out and placed in each photo taken of the build. Is this not the case any more?

So looks like this and the NASCAR GB will be running side-by-side. Probably not a coincidence, eh ?? ;) - Not decided what I'm going to build, but will almost certainly be very bright :whistle:
