    Just a brief outline on the Teams Championship
    All drivers signed up to race in the new season of GT Sport will be selected in a draft system by the 5 Team Captains in a behind the scenes process which will see them signed to one of the 5 teams.
    The entire process is completed prior to season start.
    This determines the teams for the upcoming season and points accumulated by the drivers goes towards the teams championship (like constructors champ in F1 for example)
    Teammates can help each other out with driving tips, strategy etc. Like a bunch of little communities in our big community :) I find it brings along some more healthy competition while still endeavoring to help out anyone who needs it.

    Rules:
    Each team will have a similar number of drivers, as selection will be completed via a draft
    The highest 4 (TBC) drivers will score points for their team each round (which caters for absentees)
    Drivers have no say in their team selection. (but they may be listed as a privateer where, while they can still be drafted, they will not be added to team chats)
    Each Captain will take part in a draft process via PM, PSN chat, FB messenger etc
    Only drivers who have indicated their interest in the Entry List Threads or been placed into a division thread may be drafted
    Drivers who join mid-season will be assigned to the lowest overall team (before joker calculations)
    In the instance a team has a DNS counted as one of their scorers for a round, they will replace the 0 points with the lowest points scored for another team. (this scales if there are 2 DNS, then they get the lowest score and 2nd lowest score)

    Joker Card:
    Each Captain has a Joker Card they can play before each round whereby they nominate one driver on their team to score double points for their team that round.
    The Captain may nominate 2 reserve jokers also, whereby if their first pick did not start, was disconnected, receives a penalty, or was lag punted, the reserve driver may take the joker.
    If a card is not played or played late then the lowest point scorer for a team becomes the joker. (but this joker cannot outscore the lowest scoring joker of all other teams for that round)
    A driver can only be nominated for a total of 2 rounds in the Season. (Captains may nominate themselves for 1 round only)(Captains may nominate a driver for a third round - or second for themselves - but only at 1.5x the amount)
    Deadline for Joker Card nomination is 8pm Sunday on the same day as the round.
    Captains should nominate their joker through PM to @Hatfield
    If a driver nominated does not partake in the subsequent round, that round will not count in their total rounds of nomination.

    Drop Round
    At the end of the season, each team will drop their round which had the lowest point score

    Information will be sent to the team Captains privately on when/how to start the draft.
    Teams and their drivers will be updated here accordingly so keep an eye out

    Team Longevity
    Teams will have 3 permanent drivers (including captain) for the year (4 seasons)
    Most drivers will stay in their team for 2 seasons with captains given the option of releasing up to 3 drivers into the next seasons draft
    The following season draft will only contain these released drivers and any new entrants
    After the first 2 seasons in a year, all but the permanent drivers will go back into the draft
    This season is the 4th this year, so the draft process contains only released drivers and new entrants
