    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)

    • 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:
    • 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:

    Simulated Driver Change for WW 2 Hour Race Only

    [​IMG]
    There will be 1 mandated (simulated) driver change pitstops during the race which must take place between 30 and 90 minutes into the race. To simulate the change a driver will pause during a regular pit stop for 5 minutes. The time is free to choose for every single drivers' own will. It will throw some interesting dynamics into the race and it will also allow the participants to take a small break during the race for a stretch, drink or a real life pit stop during this challenging event.


    Specifics

    1. To begin the simulated driver change enter the pits as normal.
    2. To make sure your car stays in the pit you must not make the choice of tires yet while your car is driving through the pits to its' box.
    3. This way your car will stay stationary and the crew will not start working on the tire change.
    4. As soon as the car is stopped, the counter for stop duration starts. This is your 5min timer.
    5. After that timer has hit 5:00min you can select the tire type and continue your pitstop and your race.
    Driver Change Verification and Infractions

    • All drivers will have to make screenshots from their 5min pitstops and post them in the thread afterwards for verification.
    • If you do not serve the total 5 minutes a double time penalty will be applied to your finish time. e.g. if you serve only 4 minutes then 2 minutes will be added to your finish time.
    • If you accidentally leave the pits early you can avoid a penalty by returning to the pits and serving all of the remaining time on the *very next* lap.
    • Any driver that doesn't attempt a proper driver change will be DQ'd and removed from the official results.

    If NA turnout for tonight remains really poor, I will likely just make it a practice lobby for this event.

    Just noticed wrong track in OP. I've not had time this week for the TT but I'm guessing it's the Chicane version we're using for this race right?

    edit:
    Can I just check something, are we allowed to use Racing Hard tyres if we want to? Or is it Min & Max tyres Racing Medium Only.
