It's not really like this is a recruitment drive, more of a recruitment system. The first RAD series would contain roughly 6-8 new members, so I don't think we should be advertising this heavly. At least not like a huge push for a bunch of drivers. I agree with Joker on that. We want quality guys that already show a sense of how to race clean and hard. They don't have to be the fastest out there, though. We want a good attitude and a team player.
There are still a few new players to GT5P, but most of the guys out there have been around for a while. GT5 is going to open up a huge amount of new players when it is FINALY released. Christmas time will bring a new batch of PS3's down the chimney, and the start of nest year the game will be full of possible talent.
Remember guys, we are ALL very fast here. That's not just blowing smoke, it's a fact. It can be rough to jump into races with 10 to 15 drivers like we have, even if you do have some experience. Solo drivers may not have a lot of experience in organized group races with large numbers of cars. The new series will act as a break-in period to find out how these drivers will respond to different racing situations. We want a good fit for the team. Not every new recruit might pass.
The plan is for short RAD seasons, 3 or 4 months long, 3 a year. That should give any new member picked up during a season a chance to get in on the start of another season quickly. The events committee will need to see just what options are available in GT5, but where the RED series races will involve random weather, damage, mechanical breakdow, etc., the RAD series races will have some of these options controled and set before the events. RED members whould ocaisonaly jump in on the events just as Sprint Cup drivers run in the Nationwide series.
