    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)

    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:

    Just did a run of 11 laps with the car. 3 liters per lap and about 10% tire wear over that duration of time. Maybe fast tire/fuel consumption is the way to go?

    If the race is 25 laps, we wouldn't need to pit on normal.

    Yah, in that case, I'd probably agree to go with fast to induce at least one pit stop.

    I have registered for the events (reserve for EU, confirmed for NA), but I can't make practice today and I haven't driven a lap. I hope to get online for a few laps tonight to prepare a bit.

    What do online lap times look like so I know when I'm in the ball park.

    Got dropped due to internet, but I was leaving shortly anyway.

    These cars, with the fast tire/fuel consumption will be great. :tup:

    Lounge is setup for practice.


    Can someone send me a broken-in car? I ran 90 laps at Indy today to break it in but it didn't ?!?!?

    EDIT: Left, kept getting DC'D. Might join back later.

    Don't forget that since we're using "Fast" fuel consumption you'll have to do your own fuel calculations and not trust the system to recommend the correct amount. Actually, I don't know if they fixed that issue in the latest update, but to be safe you should figure it out to be sure.

    By my calculations, the car is consuming 5.6 - 5.7 L per lap and I would have to add about 65 L to safely make it to the end of the race (29 laps including formation). That would probably give me less than a single lap cushion so use these numbers at your own risk.

    I've only run the car tonight for the first time so your probably best off if you do your own calculations based on your own approach to each lap and driving style.

    Sent a Zyxel since that's what you registered with. Pekka's setup should be pre-installed.

    Think I might change my registration to the Skyline since there seem to be more Zyxel's. My best lap for both cars was within 0.07 so don't think it matters much.
