    Steward's Comments:
    Laguna Freakin' Seca. My favorite track in the world, and one I've raced at many, many times. Normally in road cars a lot like this one. We're putting the TT up early this week, because you guys are clearly distracted by her siren song.

    If you are wondering about the name, it's been 795 days since our last combo at this track, the final one of GT6. And following that event, just after the release of GT Sport, I had a race at Laguna. I've posted some in car footage from the Supercharged MR2 for your viewing pleasure below. I ALSO have a race there the weekend after New Years, so I needed this for practice. ;)

    This car is fantastic here. I hope I don't have to talk you guys into trying it out, but please try it before you judge. I came up with 4 cars that could work here, and then had others test them. We all came back with this one. It embodies what Gran Turismo, Laguna Seca, and driving for the joy of driving is all about.

    Oh, and Merry Christmas. :cheers:


    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 109 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 109 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 109 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, December 30th 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.

    Hint: Lifting and/or shifting works on some corners. As opposed to braking.

    I think I just need to tap the brake as I make that left up to the corkscrew. I'm still crazy rusty but it's coming along, slowly.

    I edited your first split, assuming you'd not gained 2 seconds.

    Thanks man, must be my old age catching up with me. My shoulders are still tight from the LH Challenges. I had to adjust my seat yesterday so I'm more upright.

    T1 is still one of my most fav sections of track evarrrrrr :D

    Saw a couple 28.4s that were too good for me, but cleaned up T2 and 3. Time for bed. Hopefully I can get back to this tomorrow.

    Nice car for learning the track. Shifting up to 4th before the left hander before the corkscrew

    Yeah, that's turn 6. One of the most critical turns on the track for lap time, and that's one of the tricks I was hinting at to @Jump_Ace .

    Lift and shift vs. braking there.

    ProTip: Turns 4 and 6 have the sausages, if you can hit them just right (center of your car) you almost do both turns flat out.. just half throttle lift to get the car to rotate in.

    You should see how the other cars we tested reacted to them, much worse than Silvia.

    They actually installed those at the track when they widened turn 6 exit and turn 7, and painted the curbs red and white.

    They are easier to avoid in real life, you can see them coming.

    There were always some version of those at the apexes, but they are more aggresive now. And they harder to see since the curbs are red/white, while they used to be blue and white, with the sausages being raised red painted curbs at the apex.
