    Race Specifics:
    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account
    • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • This will be especially important in the harbor section, exiting the chicane. I don't want a bunch of DQ's from people hitting that wall at the chicane exit.
    • Navy Blue 'n White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.

    Steward's Comments:
    During the GT Sport Closed Beta, we had a lot of races here at one of PD's recent Original Course masterpieces. I am personally impressed by the layout and it quickly became one of my favorites in the franchise. Our resident racing historian Ned ( @GTP_Nail ) named one of the turns here Larini, after the track side advertising for what is apparently some really high end aftermarket exhaust. The problem is, there are Larini signs everywhere, so we could not tell which corner he was talking about. :lol:


    Viewing your T1 & T2 Sector Times:
    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector 1 and sector 2 splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the second split location.
    • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.

    (Best Lap Replay Save)

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires in-line would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.

    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind. We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private IM service.):
    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline, expect the full lap time to be public, regardless of whether you've only shared with Friends or Public.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 1 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      X:XX.XXX
      (Example-) 1:10.100
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, we no longer have the ability to export the files.
    • If you have an error, don't panic. Just review the instructions for submission and submit again. If you are having trouble and cannot figure it out, please post your question in the race thread.
    • Users can ask the bot for the current submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, December 4th 11:59pm GMT
    • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site
    Why Use GMT?:

    GMT is World Time and the basis of every world time zone which sets the time of day and is at the centre of the time zone map. GMT sets current time or official time around the globe. Most time changes are measured by GMT. Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.

    Replay Checking:

    • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via GT Sport Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Good luck, :gtplanet:

    IS there a qualifier to do before entering this? I noticed in the old threads that had you had to run a qualifier to be placed on a division

    Cheers

    No qualifier, we did away with that.

    Just start here.

    You will be placed in a division based on your first 3 event results.

    Sorry for the silly question, I have read through but unsure if I need to make a GTP account or if I can just use my current PSN

    Ok guys let’s see if I do this right, first splits

    36.871
    34.385

    There’s more time left in second sector, just trying to get used to a new view, I was using 3rd person but changed it because there was no rear view mirror. Also just started using weak ABS instead of default.

    A couple of changes to get used to

    :cheers:

    Been waiting for this. Really glad you guys got it figured out.

    @EDK I changed my gtplant name from randy1122 to GTP_randy and my psn is GTP_randy. Do I need to submit anything for vaxen or can he just change it in the registry?

    We have some funkiness going on with the leaderboard, but if you go to the specific event week, the splits are showing up there.

    http://wrs.gtplanet.net/GTSport/week/1/

    The main landing page has the event, but splits are not being parsed to it.
    Please send us a PM as detailed in the registration thread.

    Hopefully I can lower those a fair bit with some practice.
