    Steward's Comments:

    What do despots, oligarchs and princes all around the world have in common? A Bugatti Veyron. We have so much against this car we are still trying to figure out how it made it to a combo, but we'll choose testing over belief every time. And this one's really good (Once you get used to braking points measured in miles). Go feel rich for a while.

    Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
    • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
    • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    • 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 splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
    • 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.
    • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
    • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If you’re still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if you’re still undecided, run the lap again.

    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 lap time.
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.
    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 100 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, you 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 100 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 100 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, October 28th 2019 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 the 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 (Replay Verify Required).
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

    Thanks. :tup:

    I've been here doing this for 10 years as a volunteer, as a matter of fact, my first event was 10 years ago this week.

    I've put up some great combos, and some not so great ones. But we always work to use the breadth of what's available on the game.

    That said, it's always nice to have brand new guys come in and take a dump on the combo before others have a chance to try it. :)

    Well done. :tup:

    It wasn‘t meant to be offensive or anything just my honest opinion as I never even liked driving the Veyron in the first place and Monza not really being one of my best tracks :D

    However I appreciate the challenge given and gave my best to get out a decent lap (with lots of frustation tho) :cheers:

    EDIT: Also congratulations on the anniversary :gtpflag:

    Fair enough, I also hate the Veyron, I actually did not own one before we tested for this combo.

    This all started when we said "we should find a road car combo for Monza with no chicane". The slower cars were boring, so it needed to be something fast.

    Believe it or not, this is among the best braking fast cars. Some of the cars, the braking zones were so ridiculously long, it took all the enjoyment out of it.

    Looks like I will have time this week to have a go at this one, so just know that I will be torturing myself along with you guys. :lol:

    Yeah I figured that out a few months ago when I tried the other faster cars, too. The Vulcan especially is so weak on the brakes it‘s ridiculous; needs to be braked at the exit of Ascari to make it through the Parabolica :lol:

    Congrats on reaching week 100 :cheers:
    Incidentally my first WRS combo was also Monza in the 458 Gr.3.

    Only done 5 laps seems to be quite a challenge, just the 1 clean one so far:

    I am listing my 2013 Bugatti Veyron for sale. It comes with the 16.3 liter engine. Has all the bells and whistles you would come to expect from a Bugatti supercar. Bought new off the showroom floor and has an original 53.8 miles. I am selling because its not what I thought it would be. Serious inquiries only.


    Just kidding. I dont have enough money IRL to buy one nor enough credits to buy one on a video game :/

    I’m getting a little suspicious looking at my place on leader board. I better check my settings when I get home.

    You guys are all bunched together around 1.0 off of the top couple guys.

    Looks like you did have a good T1, which is really just down to the launch out of Parabolica on the prior lap, and managing a good braking point for Curva Grande without hitting the grass.

    If you ranked off of T2 only, you would be down in 7th.

    Not saying not to check, but nothing about your splits seems like a settings red flag, unless you happen to have racing tires on the car.

    Just does not seem like you have a straightline advantage.
