  1. Not sure about the $1M SHL Bonus. I mean it’s fine for the ones that have an SHL player but for the ones that don’t it might be a head scratcher.

    • I don’t have an inherent issue with the bonus, but there should be some kind of alternative if the driver in question has no SHL account or player.

  2. Yeah, I agree that 1M seems a bit generous (more than enough to buy GAP and the yearly training package by itself), and also kinda contradicts the all sim league partnership the welfare system uses.

    Question, for the other tracks that have bonuses, are those bonuses for all drivers who qualify for the race? Slinger is a small track, could be interesting if so.

    Separately, are there any prizes for end-of-season standings?

  3. Realistically speaking, a 1mil bonus is just that. A bonus. Honestly, we’re talking about paying for a single training session which is basically nothing over the course of a career.

    I see no issues with it. Could extend to other leagues if the player isn’t active in the SHL.

  4. I really appreciate the cover photo of this article.

    Also, I think the bonus is fine. As people pointed out, it literally buys you a grand total of one training in the SHL. Not much of an impact, in my opinion.

    • I just went back and looked at the stream. Wally would have to confirm, but I definitely saw a white car slow during the pace lap and pull onto pit road coming to the green flag. If that was you (and you didn’t log a lap) it might have tricked the system into saying you weren’t in the race.

  5. Just checked the stats for the 3 races ….I’m not good on super speedways …I’m shit on speedways ….I’m barely a back marker on road courses ….we shall see if short tracks save me or if I go back to electric Go karts and dominate all.
