    In the event of a field of 13-15 drivers we will disable mics and race with one grid. With 16+ we will split the grid.

    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 30 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)

    Formation Lap

    • After the system places you on the grid drivers should proceed into stagger formation in order.
    • Pole sitter will choose his/her preferred side of the track.
    • There should be no overlap between cars in the staggered formation.
    • Speed limit on formation lap is 50 mph / 80 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 Tokyo R246 Reverse 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.
    • 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 including green painted concrete.
    • 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:

    Welcome Lo Scassatore!

    I just processed your entry in the Database and you should be showing up on the Registration Table with the next update. :tup:

    To get to know us a little, and to see how we start the races, I would strongly suggest joining the EU Practice on Tuesday starting at around 18:30GMT (That's 20:30 our time ;))

    EDIT: Did you sent the FR's? I'm not at the PS3 at the moment, will be able to accept them as soon as I get home.

    That will be some short stints on RS's. After 5 laps I was riding on my rims in the front.

    Anyone try the pit entrance yet? It is somewhat ridiculous. You can go at it flat out, you don't really see where it is exactly, and then you have to brake to seemingly walking speed so as not to crash into the pit wall. And even if you make it, you might crash inside the pitlane after the game takes over the car. That will guarantee some element of chance in the race... :sly:

    Edit: Ok, it's not that bad after all. Found the right marker for braking and then it's quite ok.

    If things stay this way for NA, I guess I'll *have* to get up so we will be able to make the raceresults official. Hope I don't sleep through my alarm then :scared: :)

    In a way, yes :sly: but don't worry about it I always try to make both races. :)

    Wake up 5AM, you say? Race at 5AM. ;)

    I go to sleep at about 23:30 after the EU race and putting in the results and get up at 03:00-03:15 to race at 04:00. Allowing myself to wake up properly. :)

    You wish Frank :)

    Another quick question: how can I change my name in the 3D3 Database, initially I wrote down "n0iZe", instead of Daniel.

    Christophe can you maybe fix this, when you have a minute?
    Thanks in advance.
