    Eligibility

    This WRS-Online event hosted by 3D3 Racing is open to GTP_WRS Registered members only. If you are not currently on the registry, join now by following the GTP_WRS Registration!


    Delaying or Restarting Race Start

    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will only be restarted in these cases:

    • Multiple drivers report a black screen/hang, instead of the 3-2-1 countdown.
    • One or more drivers get disconnected before race-pace has begun ("GO" for grid-starts, end of formation lap for rolling starts).
    • Steward realizes there is a condition that would lead to an unfair or poor race experience.
    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will explicitly NOT be restarted for:

    • Latecomers, even if you've registered
    • Driver realizes he picked the wrong car parts (ie, tires) or driving options (ie, Auto tranny)
    Lounge Splits

    A more formal formula will be used to determine lobby assignments.

    First, every driver that confirms their registration will be ranked using an event specific handicap equal to the minimum(best) of the following:
    1. Handicap from the official registry (driver does nothing, falls back on official handicap)
    2. Handicap from the official time trial (driver included in official time trial results)
    3. Handicap computed using an unofficial offline ghost lap replay
      • Must conform to all time trial rules and be attached to a post in the online thread
      • Submitted after TT deadline on Monday @ 23:59 GMT
      • Submitted at least 8 hours prior to the event start time
    4. Handicap computed using the best clean lap of an online steward observed qualification race
      • Tire wear set to off, but otherwise conforming to online regulations
      • 5 lap race: 1 out lap, 3 timed hot laps, 1 cool down lap.
      • Scheduled with steward ahead of time (plan ahead and request via thread)
      • Completed at least 3 hours prior to the event start time

    Second, we will sort the confirmed drivers 90 minutes prior to the race and divide them up evenly. If there are an odd numbers of drivers the extra driver will be assigned to the A room. At that point the stewards convene and assign a director and supporting steward for each lobby. Then at about 50-60 minutes prior to the race the room #s and driver assignments will be published to the thread.

    Reserves: Drivers with reserve status at 90 minutes prior to event start will not be included in the lobby assignments, but will be listed with their applicable handicap in a reserve list. They will have to request on the thread to be added to a lobby and the assignment will be at the discretion of the stewards. In that case handicap will be used as a guide, but there are no guarantees last minute confirms/entries will get the room you want and in some rare cases may not get to race at all (e.g. if the room split is such that there is two full rooms or if the new driver would create an additional room that wouldn't be supportable with the number of stewards available). Reserves will be handled on a first to request basis using the online race thread. Do not use the google form to confirm/register at the last minute, but use a thread post instead. If you are on reserve list or not listed at all in the lobby assignments do not join a room until instructed to do so.

    Abuse: Because confirming guarantees you a grid spot it's important that nobody abuses the status. If you are fairly confident (80%) you are going to make the race sign up as confirmed ahead of time, but it's important you update your status as you get more information and for sure no later than 90 minutes prior to the race. At that point if you are not 99% sure you should be on reserve. This is a courtesy we ask, not only for the admins/stewards, but also for the benefit of other drivers that have accurately stated their status. We're going to use a three strike rule. A confirmed driver that "no shows" will receive 2 strikes. A confirmed driver that cancels less than 90 minutes of the race, but before race start will get 1 strike. Three strikes in any 8 week period and the driver risks being suspended from the online participation for 8 weeks. We know "stuff happens" and real life comes first so this allows some forgiveness, but we can't manage multiple rooms effectively if we don't know at least a bit ahead of time who is going to be showing up and we can't have people taking advantage of the system to guarantee their spot at the cost of someone else.

    These rules will only apply for weekly Wednesday events where more than 16 drivers are confirmed. In the case of 16 or less the situation is more relaxed as the stewards just open up one lobby, all confirmed drivers are guaranteed a spot, and reserves are given grid spots on a first come first serve basis.

    Goals of these rules?
    • Creates lounges of similar paced drivers equitably without relying on honor based practice laps.
    • Allows drivers that have improved beyond their handicap to qualify in a "faster" lounge.
    • Allows drivers that did not have time to run the TT to submit an offline lap well after the official TT deadline.
    • Allows drivers to run in an online setup to qualify if they don't want to deal with offline replays. These could be done during any of the practice sessions as long as a steward is present to observe.
    • Allows drivers to fall back on registry handicap if they have no time to pre-qualify.

    We hope/expect the vast majority of drivers are covered by their handicap or TT result and the other two options are only used in a few cases each week. Drivers who have not been official processed should take advantage of #3 or #4 or they will be "approximately" assigned based on our best guess of their handicap.

    Also note that the above procedures will typically only apply to lobby assignments. Within each lobby there will still be a pre-race qualification session to determine grid order.

    • Be cautious and courteous in the first turn. Dive bombing will be penalized and will not be tolerated.

    Track Boundary Guidelines

    Drivers are expected to do their best to stay within track boundaries per the OLR. Mistakes happens over the course of a long race and the random off or two will be overlooked in most instances, but if a pattern of boundary abuse is observed penalties will be handed out which include 15 seconds for a "minor" pattern of abuse, 30 seconds for a "substantial" pattern of abuse, and a DQ for "complete disregard" of track boundaries. In cases where penalties may not impact the driver (e.g. DC), the penalty may be carried over to the next event and may be applied as a 5 (minor) or 10 (major) grid spot penalty.
    It's up to the admins' discretion exactly what qualifies as "minor", "substantial" or "complete disregard". Going outside the rumble by a centimeter isn't as serious as a car length wide excursions into the run off area. Factors such as dirty air and traffic also come into play. If you find yourself going wide then the next lap you're expected to slow down a bit more to make sure you stay within boundaries. If you make the same mistake multiple times and you want to avoid a penalty you can always self-penalize during the race by lifting for a very brief period upon returning to the track. Continuing to hammer the throttle after repeated boundary overruns may very well end with a post race penalty.

    General Guidelines:
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification. This includes pit entry/exit.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track.
    • If you overrun boundaries by accident, lift momentarily to make sure you don't gain any advantage.
    • Do not complete a pass that was made possible by going outside track boundaries.
    Track Specific Guidelines:
    • Same track limits as the Time Trial.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:
    • Unless otherwise specified, all rules from the original WRS event apply.
    • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
    • 3D3 Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to kick out or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are kicked out of the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future 3D3 events.
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track including green painted concrete.
    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.

    Good Luck, OLR Team:gtplanet:

    I put reserve for WW and EU. I have a better chance of making the EU than WW. Will try to make both, hopefully can make at least one.

    Work is piling up and traveling quite a bit the next couple of weeks so something has to give, 'fraid it needs to be today's race. You know how it is, no matter my good intentions I can't fire up the wheel and then get back to work.

    Y'all have fun.

    When setting up the HP for the room, I noticed that 357hp (3 above this Ferrari's 354) has 2 ticks, just like in GT6 for certain HP's.

    Well, I don't know about everyone else... but, I had fun in the WW race.

    I started in 8th with @Argon in front, @quentin1974 in front of him and @Gravitron behind me. We ran nose to tail for several laps. Mike spun in the esses and then I think Lucas went into fuel saving mode. Something happend to @roamer2629 earlier, so now I was up to 6th and chasing down Quentin.

    Quentin and I swapped spots a couple of times due to pit stops. So, we spent the rest of the race chasing eachother down. After the last stop he was ahead of me. I slowly got up to him on the 2nd to last lap. Coming to the white flag, he ran out of fuel :indiff:. So, I finished 5th.

    I was really looking forward to him and I battling it out on the last lap. Great fun as always!

    Congrats to @PASM on the win!

    Thanks Mike, Quentin, and Lucas for the good racing :cheers:

    It was great fun trying to keep up with you and @quentin1974 whilst it lasted but victory for me this week ended up as just getting that car across the line facing the right way. Was a shame that I had that early spin as it meant that I pretty much ran on my own until I caught up with @Gravitron who was on a different strategy to me so was in fuel save mode. Aside from trying to stay on the black stuff my job was staying out of the way of @PASM and @suprajef who were both flying around. Thanks everyone for another fun session and congrats to @PASM.:cheers:

    My race went fairly decent yesterday.
    Started on 4th and also finished 4th. My thought was to save on fuel and go for a 2 stop. 1st racinglap, @roamer2629 I think missed the brakepoint going in to the last turn and gave me a tap making me run wide in that turn. These things can happen, no hard feelings Javier. At this point I tried to keep my cool and still go for my intended strategy. A couple laps further I saw @Siggers spin off in the first turn which allowed me to gain a position. He was on a 3 stop strategy so he gained on me again pretty fast. He also stayed out a little longer I think but eventually hit the pits at the end of lap 16. I had to stay out untill the end of lap 19 but only made it till lap 18. Saving fuel was damn tough in this car. At this point I knew I had to stay clear from incidents as I knew I would be needing every tenth I could get.
    By the end of the race it was very clear my 2 stop had not worked out to gain a position. @Siggers and I both had our last pitstop done but my advantage on him was getting smaller real fast. By the time he got with me I could not defend at all as I needed every drop of fuel to make it to the finishline.

    Congrats to everyone who attended this race.
    Congrats @PASM on the victory.

    The pit stop before I ran out of fuel I went in on map 3 and tried to come out on map 1. I put more fuel in then said needed(I think) but I guess I misjudged it. I am going to start putting a full lap extra of fuel. would had been a great battle to the finish.

    When I made my last stop, I waited until we had less than 15 laps left. Then I knew if I filled it up, it would last to the end on map 1.

    I think I will change my mind on giving it a go, if I can (somewhat) control a 600+ hp Lambo without electronic help on Lago Maggiore gp II, why couldn't I do the same with this Ferrari? And if I don't go that fast, I can get some practise getting lapped (Green Hell in mind)

    Put it on reserve because I still need to see what the plans of my wife are

    Quantifying starts at the listed time 20:00 GMT, 3pm where I live. Sometimes a few mins after. The practice room opens roughly an hour before. I highly recommend getting in the practice room as early as possible. So you can get a feel for tire wear and fuel consumption.
