Eligibility

This WRS-Online event is open to GTplanet and Tidgney Community Racing members.
Registration is done by posting a message in this thread:​

psn name - day of race

i.e

GTP_Dutchy - Thursday(provisional*) & Saturday


*If you are unsure of whether you can make a specific event, we can list you as Provisional. As provisional, we will prioritize confirmed drivers on raceday, until 15 minutes before race start.

Drivers who do not arrive in the lobby at least 15 minutes before the race, and have not given any advance notice, will risk having their spot go to provisional drivers who arrive at least 15 minutes prior.

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.
  • Drivers get stuck on grid (We will restart once for this).
  • 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)

  • Notes: Drivers not in the lounge by the time the first driver has entered the track after reset will not be allowed to qualify. They are welcome to join the race, but will start at the back of the grid. If we are running multiple qualification groups and the driver enters before the last group has entered track an exception will be made.
  • After the qualification time is complete a steward will record the results.
  • The system will place all drivers on the grid and begin the countdown timer.
  • 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
  • 2 wheels must remain on the curbs through radilion.
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.
  • 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 WRS 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:

First time racing with WRS, so forgive the numpty questions; just want to make sure I get the procedure right.

1) Re "Room will restart", does that mean the lobby will close and we need to manually go back into it?
2) Re "how many cars you see on track", do you mean number of people in the lobby? Is it just a check to see everyone is in and paying attention?
3. Formation lap starts
3a. Leader will get the pack up to 120 KMH / 75 mph.
...
3d. At the finishline straight the leader will make sure the pack is close and keep at 120kmh /75mph.
3e. Once you hear the beep at the start finishline the race starts.
3) Re "formation lap starts", is this a 'manual' formation lap then leading into a manual rolling start, given settings are grid start?
4) Re "the beep", given it was a grid start and GT7 will have done its beep there, will you create the beep at the end of the formation lap?

Thanks

For the 4th point, if you go through sector, you hear the subtle beep. This, on the finish line of the formation lap, will indicate the actual race start, and I think it is once the car placed one above you starts accelerating, you can accelerate.

For the 3rd point, yes, the formation lap is a manual procedure. Once the countdown runs down, we form the 2 files and proceed with the formation lap at a constant speed.

For the 2nd point, this is when you join the track, and while on pitlane (no move) you can see the number of participants in the upper left corner, for example 7/13, that means 7 of 13 cars are on the track.

For the 1st point, this I'm really not sure with all the infant online problems GT and especially Lobby encounters. Usually it was like changing one thing in room setup and back again which ensures resetting the times. If all worked as it should, there would be no need to leave the room and join it back. And I believe guys from WRS team figure this out.

And they will for sure communicate the entire procedure before start, at least that's how I remember it.

i think @Mires covered most of it. point 1: we will do a restart between practice and qually. but not between qually and race.
