    Steward's Comments:
    Our first visit to one of the Prologue tracks this week. Those who ran WRS on Prologue might have an initial advantage here. While splits are not visible during your run, they are visible in the live timing monitor when watching your replay.


    Viewing your T1 & T2 Lap Time Splits:




    • Save your replay using the "Save Replay" option. This is the only replay save option available for this event, you will not be able to save a ghost replay
    • Make sure you save your replay any time you have a run you are happy with. The game will overwrite the fastest replay every time you make a new run.
    • To view your 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!




    [​IMG]

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:



    • 2 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
    • 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



    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods
    ):

    • Lap time
    • Any information which can be used to infer laptime

    Excellent!! I love driving this track, although I'm not too fast on it. Patience during the switchbacks is always hard!

    Sorry Zoky, nowt to compare with here lol :)

    Quick blast - I love Alfas and I do like this track, but it's tough to know when you are doing well without a ghost. Still - it's a bit different and a good challenge. Good stuff :tup:

    I wonder what all 88 people below you on the leaderboard for week 6 think of that statement.

    Edit - Aaaargh! No ghost.... that was one of my downfalls on the qualifier too. Should be an interesting challenge. :)

    I was not implying anything with that comment, I have respect for everybody on the leader boards and have not said a bad word about anybody.

    Think you are jumping the gun a bit there, get to know me before making accusations :grumpy:

    I will be dropping a few places for week 6 after further inspection of my replay

    I hope I joined the WRS for the right reasons, I was under the impression everybody was a friendly and helpful bunch of guys

    Think that was all in good humour from Vagabond, Plato.

    I only Golded this by about 3 thousandths and struggled. Could be a tough week.

    I think the only reason why you interpreted that statement as such is the lack of exclamation mark at the end! I seriously doubt Chris meant anything bad by it.

    How on Earth did that come across as an accusation?

    I parry your offence with a chiding tone... get to know me before taking umbrage at my sarcasm. :sly:

    Edit - to avoid further confusion I shall render my humour obsolete by explaining it. 88 people below you in the splits, 88 people who have more reason to think their weaknesses are being exploited than you have, 88 people who would read your statement and think "Holy Crap, you call that being exploited for your weaknesses? What weaknesses?"

    Edit edit - I'm one of them :tup:

    Edit edit edit - Thank Nigel :tup: I actually hate exlamation marks and use them rarely... such as in relation to Josh's lap times.

    I am not trying to cause upset or an argument here, like I said I joined the WRS because it seemed a friendly helpful environment.

    If I have offended anybody by my comments I apologize, didn't mean anything by it.

    Vagabond, hope we haven't got off on the wrong foot... lets start again

    I often find exclamation marks are useful for defining tone on the internet. It can make a big difference and tone can be really hard to read on the web, especially if you get different cultures mixing. Sarcasm can be a very British thing.

    Fine by me. My name is Chris, I am erratic and inconsistent and oftimes sarcastic :tup:

    True enough, mate. Plato is British though, so he has no excuse(!) :sly:

    Damn, I'm all over the place on this track (still)

    T1: 35.078
    T2: 21.101

    There may be room for some improvement.... :dopey:

    Sarcasm noted :sly:

    Good luck on next time trial, I may continue with week 6 as I am unsure if my lap is clean or dirty. If I don't beat it I have a time a couple of tenths slower thats clean I can submit.

    Good luck to all others taking part :)
