In the event of a field of 13-16 drivers we will disable mics and race with one grid. With 17+ we will split the grid.

(table will auto update approximately every 30 minutes)




Eligibility

This WRS-Online event hosted by 3D3 Racing is open to GTP_Registered members only. If you are not currently on the registry run the GTP_Registry qualifier and join now!

Registration Instructions

The following must be performed by every driver for every event:
  • Click the registration button above, fill-in and submit the online registration form (use your GTP_ tag ID)
  • Leave a quick note in this thread to let us know you've registered and any other comments.
The following must be performed only one time per driver (not per event):
  • Send a PSN friend request to GTP_3D3Racing, GTP_3D3_A and GTP_3D3_B from your GTP_tag account.
  • Submit the 3D3 Racing Online Driver Database Entry Form. Your information will need to be verified before you are added to the db and before your ID will appear in the registered driver table above. You can view the official driver database here.

There is a 32 car/driver limit for this event (per region) and slots are awarded on the grid using a first come first serve basis. Reference the registered drivers table above for availability. This is a stand alone race and points are not tallied for a series. Future WRS-Online races hosted by 3D3 racing may have different driver limits and will require re-registration using the same first come first serve basis and participation in future events is optional.

Registration Changes

If you want to change your time slot, add a time slot or update your color choices just click on the registration link and fill out the form again and submit with new values. Your last entry will override any previous entries.

Cancellations

If for some reason, after you register for the event, you are unable to attend please click the registration button above and complete the form again selecting "cancel" as your status. Please also post a note in this thread as the table above can take some time to update.

Delaying or Restarting Race Start

Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will only be restarted in these cases:
  • Multiple drivers report a black screen/hang, instead of the 3-2-1 countdown.
  • One or more drivers get disconnected before race-pace has begun ("GO" for grid-starts, end of formation lap for rolling starts).
  • Steward realizes there is a condition that would lead to an unfair or poor race experience.

Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will explicitly NOT be restarted for:
  • Latecomers, even if you've registered
  • Driver realizes he picked the wrong car parts (ie, tires) or driving options (ie, Auto tranny)

  • All drivers should exit track after the order is announced and enter the pits. When all drivers are in the pits a steward will start the race.
  • After the system places you on the grid drivers should proceed into stagger formation in order.
  • Pole sitter will take side of track (right or left) that is normally assigned to the pole position on the grid (Daytona = Right).
  • There should be no overlap between cars in the staggered formation.
  • Speed limit on formation lap is 63 mph / 100 kph and pole sitter should maintain this speed (or less) to keep pack together, in particular in the final sector.
  • Weaving or other tire warming procedures are NOT allowed during the formation lap.
  • Pole sitter will exit the last corner and take care to give enough time to allow all cars behind to safely exit the final corner.
  • Start marker for Daytona is start/finish line.
  • The pole sitter should start the race by accelerating to race pace at the identified start marker (track specific and may or may not be the start/finish line).
  • All other drivers should accelerate after the driver in front of you does so.
  • No passing is allowed before the start marker.
  • Be cautious and courteous in the first turn. Dive bombing will be penalized and will not be tolerated.

Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:

  • Unless otherwise specified, all rules from the original WRS event apply.
  • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
  • 3D3 Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to kick out or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are kicked out of the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future 3D3 events.
  • 4 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
  • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification.
  • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
  • Runoff areas are not part of the track
  • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
  • No hybrids
  • No cheating of any kind
  • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
  • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.

Good Luck, OLR Team:gtplanet:

My smoke screen tactic had no effect on Marc :( :sly:

Marc skipping through into the lead as Pekkas' tires give up, which leads to...

Pekka attempting to break into the Guiness Book of World Records for longest continuous skid, (longest skidmarks recorded on a public road were 290 m (950 ft) long and were left by a Jaguar car involved in an accident on the M1 near Luton, Bedfordshire, UK, on 30 June 1960) but falls a little short :lol:

Ok, next Wednesday just happens to be my birthday - I am fully expecting Kevin to get behind me and push me all the way to a first place finish! :lol:
 
I'm in for this one, as if I had to post that I was going to be. I plan on doing these races regularly. 👍 Finally got mine broken in fully last night so I haven't had any good time with it yet.

Glad to see you two quality drivers are becoming regular participants. 👍

NA has got out to an early lead over EU on the registration count "leaderboard" this week. :sly:
 
I might be available for the NA race. I just finished golding all of GT Academy, so it depends of when Nissan calls. Hopefully it'll be after Wednesday.
 
Hopefully I will have time for the EU race.
Real life is really busy at the moment.

Signed up as reserve for the EU race.
 
Looking forward to this race, I like this car a lot :D
Just put some RM tires on it and sent Bob off for a 4hr Nurby Nordy enduro against the R8 LMS. Don't like his chances but it really looks tough.

P.S. On the sign-up sheet the colour input field isn't there. Mine is Tuxedo Black.
 
Lap count has been tentatively set to 30. We'll adjust tomorrow after practice if necessary.

I'll check on the sign up sheet for the color issue.

UPDATE: The color selection field has been fixed.

I did some runs last night and 30 laps is going to be a bear on tires for this monster!
 
Same thoughts here, Lin. :nervous: Seemed similar to the '63 Corvette Race Car from "Split Window Splits" at Tokyo, where the rears are easily shredded.
 
Can't disagree with Gary, this car sounds so good I want to make it a 2 hr. race :D
 
Combination of Summer and GTA I think.
Hopefully it doesn't become a trend as the summer continues, but it is hard to stay focused on anything PS3 for me at this time of year.

I've got a little secret guys, but you can't tell anybody.... If you drive into the little secret road to the left coming down the straight and you don't enter too fast there are these guys that will run out and put on a new set of tires. :sly: :dopey:

Just kidding of course and giving you guys some 🤬.

What? One of these days I really have to read the manual that came with the game.
Next you'll tell us they give you more fuel too...
 
I'm thinking I might go back to using bright green on my cars. My karts are all painted in Lime Green Metallic, but when it comes to the cars I usually paint them in any color green.
 
I won't be able to join practice until at least 1 PM pacific today. I will however be setting up the lounge at/before the normal start time of 12 PM Pacific if nobody has done that already by that time.
 
Wow, this car tears up tires pretty quickly. Didn't even manage 10 laps on my first run.

Edit: Managed 11 laps but that was by keeping the car completely off the grass and being pretty conservative while maintaining a quick pace.

Yes, and I do that every 3rd lap here. :lol:

Please don't do that with tire wear on. :nervous: We'd spend more time in the pits than on the track.
