For those hesitating to opt out of the amateur scoreboard... Don't become a Mazespin  ;D
Better to let yourself be forced out on points 😜

One thing that Alan pointed out to me: if an amateur joins a team with pro pipsqueaks, does he/she still count as an amateur?

I think that being an amateur or not depends on personal experience and growth. Wether or not you are part of a team should not matter.
I've been in a team last season, it doesn't make me a different driver. It does make me more involved.

Yep and it's not only about being amateur or not, also it's a team thing. If the team developes a trick or finds a shortcut and they want to keep them for their own (hidding from non-teammates pipsqueaks or competition opponents) it is totally legal. This information would leak through the amateur league members because they only can send public replays.

Fortunately, that rule was changed so that amateur league pipsqueaks can post non-public replays like everyone else.

I think they should count. The amateur league and the team system are both supposed to encourage pipsqueak participation and engagement; I feel it would be counterproductive to make people choose just one of them.
