As I take over the reigns of the site I want to end the 2016 season with a massive round of applause for all the folks who take the time and energy to make this place go. But first a massive thank you to Matt for starting it all, and for the confidence to let me take over. It is an enormous responsibility and not one I take lightly. I have a lot of homework to take on during the off season. But I am honored to have the opportunity. When I came to SRD and learned of its stature in the Sim Racing community all I wanted to do was paint here. Having been able to do that and now be responsible for its day to day operations to look at the ship and try to guide this great team of folks who provide their time to make this place go is an honor and privilege. Thanks to the site staff who keep things in order around here and make sense of the chaos. Your work is appreciated, you are often the enemy of many for trying to keep the peace but your work is very much appreciated and unseen but not forgotten. Thank you so very much to the paint crew. Your hard work has resulted in hundreds of cars, logos, and thousands of downloads for the 2016 season. The numbers do not lie. You give your best and your time to create top notch work for the masses. Through the praise, critiques, bitching, and life obstacles you still find time to hammer away to provide a product for free to those you have never met. So thank you for the hundreds of hours you logged this season creating logos, working on textures and designs. Until a person has completed a commitment like this they cant truly understand but having done this along side of many of you for years now I know just how much effort goes into each and every car. Every detail is important and I thank you for your pain staking attention to detail and commitment to SRD. So thats all for now. Please take a moment and thank the fine folks here who have given their time and energy to bring you these wonderful cars and trucks. And thank those who make this place run and possible.
