    Yes.
    To figure out GMT-7
    You take *GMT*
    And add seven.

    5-6 PM GMT
    7-8 PM GMT
    9-10 PM GMT
    11-12 PM GMT

    But why use the -7 in the first place? Wouldn't it be very much simpler to just use GMT without any modifications?

    Hey, just remembered it is called daylight saving time in english, not summertime, that was a direct translation from danish i must say. Hope I am making myself clear(er) now :)

    Take a look at this thread. Everything you need to do to become a qualified member is in it.

    Yes I subtracted the Daylight Savings Time since my region is normally GMT - 8. Your times there are correct.

    I use GMT - 7 because that is where I live, perks of the job I guess :sly:

    But it may make things easier for everyone so I will translate them to GMT 0.

    I also provided a link to a world map that shows what timezone everyone is in. May help if you are a visual learner like myself.

    Is "Monrovia" in the same time zone of GMT-0. I'm trying to set it on my iphone and not getting the right time I think?

    You will need to be signed in with your GTP_ account otherwise you won't be allowed in the race room. But otherwise, if the room isn't nearly full, you can just watch.

    Yes, it looks like it to me: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/timezone.html?n=161

    I see you just did, great! I don't like to be nitpicking, but I would like even less to show up and find the whole party being over, so thanks for clearing it out :tup:

    You're welcome dude :tup: whatever is easier for everyone, I'm all for it. The last thing I want to happen is someone misses it because they got the wrong time :ouch:

    Hi,

    Cheers for the response im a bit confused as I just got told in a PM all I need to do is join the room with a GTP account. So if I need to qualify is it possible to be qualified by the Saturday (I have just finished University so spending time on an event is no problem in order to qualify).

    So long as you submit a qualifier with your GTP_ account by Saturday, you are welcome to race. I'm not sure the turnaround for accepting new members is under 48 hours :lol:

    My dumb question of the week: Is it 8 races or 4?

    I was soooo looking forward to being able to participate in this, but I found the site too late to be able to get everything taken care of in time. This is one of my favorite cars, she really sticks to the track so well. I hurriedly created a new profile and began leveling up, purchased the RX-7 and now I just need to try and get my "qualifying" done tonight, but I don't know if that is enough time. I'm sure the process is longer.

    Anyway, I'm interested in following this race and seeing how it all works. I'm so glad I found a place that has these events!

    Excellent stuff, I'll should hopefully be in for the 8pm start, if not definately the 9pm race :tup:

    Great to have this back up and running after the outage, ORMS month 2 was absolutely fantastic, with a great turn out :D

    See you guys on track!

    As how I read it you can join. Jerome means you're account doesn't need to be accepted for it to join. If you only read the first part you'll know what I mean.

    That's correct. With an asterik *. Please make sure you give your full and complete effort in the GTP Qualifier to ensure you get placed in the right division. So please don't rush it, just to be in the OMRS, there will be another OMRS soon enough :)

    Dont worry I'm up all night tonight anyway as my sleeping pattern is rather out of pattern. But I will be giving it my all in the qualifier as I want a decent video to upload to my channel as well as submit to the qualifier :). If I don't make it then no worries as I will give it my all! But cheers Jerome misread your post and sorry for that.

    Oh my gosh. Qualifying for that registry was SO MUCH FUN!

    I was consistently hitting within a second of my times... I felt real fast, but I know I probably won't be in the top division.

    That was a blast though... off to go practice for the race if I get accepted.

    Good to have you along, Crispy.

    For anyone who is insure, my races are at 8 and 9pm UK time, which is 9 and 10PM for mainland Europe (exc Portugal, which is on BST). Don't see any reason why mics will be disallowed on my connection, bring it along if you have one. :tup:

    Most of that time stuff was for my own confidence. :sly:

    So is this an "enter once" event still? Just curious with all the slots, still unsure what time I'll run, might be first, if not probably towards the end.
