    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:

    Just did some stint testing with the fuel and tyre wear this is going to be a really fun one I think. Looking forward to the race tomorrow, just to confirm its a grid start for this one? I know it does say that in the details but I just want to check before I spend time practicing a launch ;)

    Grid start. It's a good idea to try out a little TC in a car like this. ;)

    Thanks everyone for a fun race. Was a real fight after ditching into the chicane walls on lap 2, sorry @Schosse for you running into me, seems you got unlucky with the ghost, but glad you made it past me at least!

    Then was back to 5th. Essentially just fuel saved the rest of the race, aimed for 10 litres per lap which gave me a quick pit turnaround and managed to make passes both pit stops up to the front and defend to the end. Schosse you really put the pressure on, I watched the replay back on fast forward you were on my bumper for pretty much half the race to the end, really couldn't screw up once or it would've been yours for the taking, great race. And great pace up front for a very long time Pokey :tup: :cheers:

    It was great to follow you the whole 2nd part of the race @oink83, I still can't believe how much fuel you saved. I thought you would have to run out of fuel at the end of the race but you didn't and you even could push in the last two laps and I was too much behind to catch you again. That was an impressive performance! :tup:

    The situation at the hairpin was dangerous, I didn't knew if we race with (heavy) damage and I was just lucky having no damage. Thankfully you didnt had any damage either and not more chaos happenend. Also congrats to Pokey for your QF pace and your fantastic start of the race, I didnt even tried to follow you. :lol:

    Thanks to @EDK for hosting this event, I'm sure I will join you once more in the future. :)
