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


    Steward's Comments:
    This car is a much better drive then the original car that's electric powered with no gearing. Don't let the S1 tires scare you off, the car has loads of downforce to aid with lower grip levels.

    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!

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:


    • At least two tires in contact with track at all times.

      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • 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
    • Save your best lap/ghost replay

    I would love to have a go, but I'm pretty short on spare time, and this is one of the least DS3-friendly tracks in the game for time trialling. It just frustrates the :censored: out of me when I do what feels like a near perfect sector, and find myself .5 down on guys I normally compete with.
    Good luck all.

    Little wiggle in that lap, and definitely NOT smooth. Lots to be found in this one.

    Well I think it's about time I got back to racing, it's been a while, a few months at least. I'll give this one a go either later on today or tomorrow and see how rusty I am.:)

    Welcome back Ash I thought about you when I was doing the chicane at HSR earlier because I remember how identically we took it on our replays in the video Speedy made of the HKS at HSR week.

    Im going to find it hard to get into this one its seems so similiar to that week. Im glad your back and Ill try it again at least once see if I can find some fighting spirit. haha

    Oh, I am.:tup: Then I dick it up. :dunce:

    Got a whole week to work on it though, and still working with a broken wheel. I think that we could just be looking at a couple of seconds separating the whole leader board this week.

    There has to be a certain degree of difficulty in these events.

    I drove the car on S3's, and I found it to be way too easy.

    With all the downforce this car has, even in stock form, the tire choice is a bit decptive. It probably has grip at or beyond a car with the same power/weight ratio on S3's.

    I know the Alfa was tough, so I didn't post when people complained about the grip. That was the intent.

    But my intent here was to give everyone some grip, and a break after a couple of difficult combos in a row.

    Your experience with the pad might be different than mine with a wheel, but 90% or more of the drivers are using wheels, I mange to the majority.
