In what is probably an obvious statement, the Majors Series takes a serious amount of time and effort to run. To say that I could not do this without the help of the competition committee and many others is 100% accurate. That said, I still tend to stretch myself and the team pretty thin, soo... WE WANT YOU!



Available Roles

Competition Committee

As always we are looking for good folks to help on the competition committee, in this role, you get a say in how the rules are written, how the schedule is built and you "get to" help rule on protests.

Live Admins

One of the most common requests we get is for "live admins". Now, my excuse has always been that we have too many splits to reasonably accommodate this, but


To Hell With It!


We are going to try to put an admin in every single split next year and in the MTEC and Predator Series as well. Live Admins will be in charge of keeping the peace, keeping voice chat civil, enforcing minimum speed rules and documenting incidents to make it easier to rule on them post race. Live Admins will receive a free annual pass for the Majors and will be paid (poorly).


Social Media Manager

This person will be in control of the Majors; Facebook Group, Twitter and Instagram Accounts. Posting announcements, links, images and video in timely, regular fashion. This person will receive an annual pass and garage subscription for their efforts.


Video Creator

This person will create; series promos, race promos, race highlights and more. This person will be paid per video and the rate can be negotiated.


Blog Writers

We are looking for several writers to cover each region and championship within that region. The writers will allow us to get to know our drivers and teams in a much more substantial way and yhese articles will be used by our broadcast partners to better tell the stories of the series. Writers will paid be per article written.


Webmaster

Many people have commented on my (lack of) skill in building a website, guilty as charged. As someone who likes a lot of control, this has been hard for me to give up, but it's necessary. This person (or people) will work closely with me to design and build a website that lives up to the series it represents. Position is paid and will be based on the scope of the work.


If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact me via email at mike@meaneighteen.com or you can DM me on Facebook or Discord. Can't wait to get started.

We find ourselves in the twilight of our 7th year as the 2020 season has just two rounds to go; Bathurst and Autoclub. How do things stand? You know... with points and schtuff.


While Christian did indeed wrap up his championship early, he is not the only one to "stink up the show" this year. Sportsman division titles in both Americas and Europe have been decided and decisively with Mark Stevenson and Sam T Harper winning them respectively.


Mark with eight wins has been the class of the field and has maintained a commanding lead for much of the year, this first year driver has not only excelled on the driving side, but has also built a championship caliber team and in fact Forge Gold is on the verge of clinching the Premier team title as well.


Sam has been embroiled in a great battled all year with Joseph Homan and early in the year Daniel Jackson, but steady AND outstanding performances have given him the luxury and two very robust drop weeks sitting in his pocket. That safety net assures that he can not be caught. Like Mark, Sam has got a solid "new to the Majors" team thing going on with Missed Apex Racing.


These two champs (and many others) will get to face off in the Sportsman Playoffs come December and that should be very interesting. No matter what happens now, these guys can enjoy their championships and the promotion to pro that comes with it.

Sam taking another win at The Glen!

In the "done but not dusted" category, Bryan Barns and Micael Hagstrom are each one classified race away from clinching the Legends Championship in Americas and Europe respectively. This would be Micael's first championship but would be Bryan's 4th Legends title in 6 years, but his first since 2017.


In the "hold your horses" category, we still have many titles that are still up for grabs in the waning moments of the season.


International Pro : Will Lesslie has inched out a sizable lead, but the defending champ has been fighting from behind all year and there is no counting out Cameron Dance.


International Sportsman : Steven Williams & Gavin Barber can not shake each other and are separated by just 48 points. Gavin has no room for error though as he has used up his two drops, but if he were to sweep the last two races that would get it done.


International Legends : Another two man dogfight (wait.. wut?) You heard me, a two man dogfight! Harald Stadler and Dan Stevens, Harald just grabbed his first Majors Series win solidifying the statement "Old guys Rule". John King will be passing the trophy to one of these guys, but which one?


In the "epic battle incoming" category the European Pro Division still has EIGHT drivers alive with a shot at winning the title. Joao Valverde, Ross Banfield, Riley Thompson, Kurt Krumm, Eric Micke, Joshua Wolf, Dawson Brock and Travis Henderson are all mathematically in the running, but realistically it will come down to;


Joao vs Ross vs Riley vs Kurt.


Riley has been surging, Joao has been solid with just one slip at Lucas Oil and Ross and Kurt have been steady. Each driver has one good and one bad drop, so the pressure will be on in both rounds. Joao controls his destiny but... will he?


Stay tuned.
