It is difficult to have fun when you're the only driver to make the grid.
It is unfortunate that this league seems to have lost all of it's Regulars.
The Whackadoodle on Sunday wasn't much better with only four cars.
Perhaps it is time to re-think the ARMS leagues purpose?
Later...

I still don't believe that the league has been abandoned, but work and life committments have certainly taken its toll on a league that didn't have high attendance to begin with. Come the end of this season, I would say that the best course of action would be to put the league on hold, and do the random fun events such as the one Scott suggested for full length F1 races to mirror the real championship. We could do other things like following the WEC etc.

Yes, it was disappointing to see that Rick was the only one in last Fridays races. :(

Even the initially popular Miata series has taken a participation hit. Perhaps it's just the time of the year... Many of our league members have cars to prepare for the quickly approaching real-life racing season.

My plan has always been to put the league events on hiatus during the summer season (i.e. iRacing Season 2 & 3), and restart in the late Fall (i.e. iRacing Season 4). In the meantime, I'll keep this current season running until April 26 as planned.

Maybe well get some more people this Friday?
