    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'm going to pull out of WW tonight. I love Monza probably my favourite track but picked up a cold and so got headache and sinus pressure and lots running out my nose, don't think I could sit and focus for an hour!

    Will hopefully be there for EU. Have a good race :gtpflag:

    I know I'm probably asking stupid questions, but as this is the first one of these I've done......

    When does the lobby open for practice?
    How do I do the qualifying?

    Basically, what happens next?????
    I know it sounds daft, but i do not even get games like COD or similar to do the on-line stuff, I like to play the story mode and maybe the zombies bits, but that's all. Even in GT sport i haven't raced online yet, I get annoyed too much by the piddly little kids cheating/ramming/generally being un-sportsman like. Even if i'm doing the career mode races in GTS I race by WRS rules and reg's and restart a race if I screw it up just once.
    Anally retentive I know, but that's me.

    So essentially even though been racing Gran Tourismo since the first iteration, still a noob at online.:dunce:

    Lobby is normally open an hour before race time. EU race start time is curently 8 pm local in the UK, so practice lobby open at around 7 pm.

    We normally do qualifying at the race start time, an out lap and 2 hotlaps. We occasionally use game qualifying mode, but that depends on the steward and the event.

    The race is designed to last around 50 minutes, and so with qualifying included, the whole thing should wrap up by 9 pm for you.

    Hope that helps.

    Great race guys.
    Pity about the chicane pile-up on the first lap, no way I would have even come close to you guys in the long run

    Missed racing you on Sat. I was remembering the F40 battle we had on this no chicane version on GT5, was an amazing race.

    And I remember at being quite chuffed at having kept up with you I believe! Also had a great race here in the quite ridiculous Ferarri FXX in GT6 I think it must have been. Can't remember who was in that race but remember it being really good.
