    Bringing back the Mini for a second event on GT5, and a little twist on a great Prologue combo.


    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, T2, and T3 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!

      • 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

    This pretty much confirms my decision to not bother with the 'ring any more, sounds like fun - I'm getting short-lap withdrawal symptoms :lol:

    Cheers Kevin!

    Done with the ring myself, I don't think I can get any better, or concentrate that much any more!

    I can actually sort-of run this combo. Still won't be as fast as i can be.

    Might be a good way to get a replay showing how off my pedals are as well.

    REALLY liking this combo!

    T1: 28.504
    T2: 17.713

    I really like this city track (starting to like city tracks in general after years of hating them) and I love the Mini for it's pretty neutral handling characteristics.

    Edit: At what RPMs are you guys shifting at? This thing makes peak torque from 1500-5000 revs and peak horsepower at 5500.

    Loving it so far... Run 10 Laps before and early night. T1 I think is the make or break place, do much time to be gained or lost! Still trying to find the right line.

    T1: 28.924
    T2: 18.226

    Lost a tiny bit in T2, but picked up almost a half second in T1. I see a few hundred laps in my near future!

    T1: 28.060
    T2: 17.760

    Hrm, looks like I did a bit of ass-u-ming about the rules. I though I'd read somewhere that all hard surfaces were track in city circuits... guess it's time to re-learn the track!

    All Hard Surfaces are considered Track Surface. This includes tarmac, painted tarmac, red and white rumbles, and concrete/sidewalks.

    You assumed correct :tup:. I assumed the opposite, which was wrong!
