    Steward's Comments:
    We have not used the weather version of Eiger yet. The rain tires are a bit slippy, while the AWD rally car has loads of grip. Lots of pucker factor under braking, have fun!

    Viewing your T1 & T2 Time Splits:



    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay Theater' option.
    • While Viewing Your Replay, Choose the "Live Timing Monitor" To View Your Sector Times
    • To post your T1 and T2 Splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:




    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.


    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules

    It's a fun track with a couple tricky turns, should be a challenge for all in the rain. Too bad I'll miss out. :grumpy: I'll be keeping a eye on you'se guy's tho.

    Mixed feelings about this track still..... its actually more fun in the wet though. :p Anyway, thought I'd give it a quick bash to get a feel:

    30.252
    21.011


    30.080
    21.063


    30.189
    20.845

    Hard to say what's going to be possible since I never quite feel comfortable round here.

    I was thinking the same when I clumsily made my way around the hairpins.
    Using stock BB and 35/65 torque split....

    I also didn't realize this was a "change weather" track (I wish more seasonals and races used different weather and time of day. It's a feature of GT5 that isn't as prominent as it should be). This is definitely one of my weaker tracks, even in dry conditions. Should be a good learning experience.

    Hey Jon. :cheers: Yeah, really tricky to get into a rhythm here. I'm using 50/50 BB 3/6

    30.143
    20.888

    That'll probably be my last run today. I reckon 29.9s are possible in sector 1 now.

    Had a quick go at this, meant to run last weeks event but was ill all week with a virus.

    T1 30.414
    T2 21.064

    The last sector is quite tricky to find the turn-in and braking points, especially the last turn. Hopefully I can have a few decent runs at this through the week.

    After an hour on this, this is my best.

    31.537
    21.128

    This is with:
    TCS: 4
    4WD: 35:65
    ABS: 1
    BB: 8/2

    Any suggestions for a better setup?

    I'd give it a go without TCS - traction isn't much of an issue and I think it will cost you more than it will benefit. 50/50 torque split gives a better drive out of the corners but you need to time full throttle just right to not run wide.

    Just a quick question: the grip reduction setting screen says it affects being off of the racing line OR a wet surface. Wouldn't those setting it to "real" be at a disadvantage against those setting it to "light"? I'm by no means the most consistent driver, but after 10 laps with it set to "real" my first lap with it set to "light" was nearly a second faster at the second split. I realize everyone has the option to use either setting, I just want to be sure I'm reading the OP correctly before I start posting my times.

    (I apologize if this has been covered during other rain events:dunce:)

    You're thinking correctly, and only the insane among us will set it to Real for these time trials. ;)

    For the online races, though, it's usually always set to Real.

    I keep hoping for another rally TT and this looks like it will be close enough! :D Hopefully I will be able to pry myself away from GT Academy long enough to get a decent run on this.

    I'm really poor at this course. Maybe I'll learn something.

    I had a quick go between Gt Academy driving. Love this course when its dry!!!! I will probably enjoy the wet too when I learn where to brake!!! B/B 1/10 - 45/55

    Early morning run before work:

    T1 30.269
    T2 20.952

    Still a bit left in the final turn, and also sector 1 - the lines get really confusing trying to set up for the following corner.

    Edit - just getting into a rhythm, had a .1 through sector 1, and a couple of .8s through sector 2, but had to leave for work :(. Hopefully can come back to this tonight with similar pace.

    Got a long weekend up coming so I'll dive into this between trying to learn Silverstone and beating my head against the wall. :D

    Anyone using a drastically different line as compared to a dry course? I know we've done a few events here so I thought I'd go back and take a look at what replays I can find.

    Avoid the dry course line, if it helps turn on the racing line and avoid it. Dry course line tends to be slippery in the wet so try and avoid it as much as possible, especially on braking

    I don't think the racing line makes any difference here like it did at Spa to be honest.

    29.980
    20.882

    Best 1st sector so far. Best 2nd sector was 20.778 and I lost nearly 0.2 off my best last sector, so looking for about 0.3 on the lap. Good fun this one - better than I usually find Eiger Nordwand. :tup:

    1st sector video... hopefully lure a few people away from GT Academy for a day or 2 :sly:

    Don't think I'll see another T1 like that but who knows? Messed up my T3 so not much at the line but my fastest lap.
