    Eligibility

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

    If you are a registered member, please just post in this thread with your PSN listed, and let us know the event(s) you would like to participate in.

    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)

    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.
    • 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:

    I am still having issues with internet haha.. just got upgraded to the best cable speed available to my area and done some speed tests straight away...

    so... before the upgrade my hardwired pc was getting 200 meg and 20 upload now it gets 240meg with 40 gig upload
    my ps4 hardwired was getting 90meg and 15 upload and now it gets 190meg and 30 upload..

    but here's the kick in the balls!!! my sons Xbox hardwired through a Lan cable from my room through the ceiling to his room gets 570meg and 36 upload??? wth??? I think he is on CAT 6 cable and I'm on CAT 5 or something? or does the xbox take priority on household bandwidth? I tried swapping the LAN slots on the router but he still gets the majority bandwidth??

    Anyway I just ordered 2 new CAT7 cables with gold fittings to see if they will help me? but I'm damned if i'm upgrading and all the bandwidth goes to my sons xbox :banghead: The cables will be here Thursday and I will update in here if I am able to take part :tup:

    Have a great event guys :cheers:

    In your router admin you can select how mutch bandwith every mac adress gets as max or min then you can controle the speed of the net

    i will sugest leve 50mb down 20 up or 1/3 depending of what you have. for normal use as in phones tablets and normal pc

    then split the rest up to the gaming devices as in pc and gaming console

    and use atleased cat 6 cables

    Unless your son will spam speedtest.net is highly unlikely that will take the whole bandwidth. Still 190/30 is pretty good and if you are still having issues you need to check your router if it has qos enabled. Most routers have by default xbox qos profiles predefined but no ps4. In my experience qos hurts more than fix the problem but feel free to test with it on or off. On the other hand Compared to xbox, ps4 has definitively inferior networking. I have a 400/20 connection and my ps4 on wifi gets about 15/5 and i never have issues in gt sport including last 2 weeks that i have been streaming in 720p60fps.

    Signups all done. Please double check that you are listed where you expect to be. :)


    Let me know the days you think you want to run, once you have everything working. The WW event is not full yet, but could head in that direction.
