  • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
  • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.

  • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
  • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
    • 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.

  • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
  • Solid White Lines and Yellow Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. The double Yellow Lines and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
  • The solid White Lines and double Yellow Lines are the track limits unless immediately backed by the Yellow Rumble Strips. This will be especially important in the first few corners and in the chicane area. Special care will be needed to insure you have a clean lap and have not crossed over the track limits.


Steward's Comments:

Posting for shoenboggie!

We are headed to Spring Break a bit late this year. Daytona and the C7 are a great match, have fun and stay out of trouble.

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.

The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Discord 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 GT7 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.

  • Any settings discussion.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 11 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 11 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 11 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, June 27th, 2022 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 GT7 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.

Initial splits

1:28.992

Car has max power is at 6k RPM (middle of rev bar) but it accelerates faster to rev higher before shifting. Its a pretty close ratio transmission and the power curve falls off after that. Not the result I was expecting, what am I overlooking? :dunce:

This one is ok, right?
If the yellow is rumble strip and not just tarmac. Impossible for me to tell with that picture, increasing the shutter speed should make it easier to see.

@chimeleon we should share notes about sectors 1 & 4 :confused:

I'm happy to share my t1 replay if anyone is interested but could use some help on best way to get it posed here. :dunce:

I feel really stupid now :banghead::banghead::banghead: . I just noticed when starting a new session that the yellow areas on the exit of the bus stop are rumbles. This should help my 4th sector time.

Yes I noticed that, but if you consider short cut penalty option , you'll get 0.5s penalty if you use same trajectory

After a long session while using the "Evening" track condition, I kept getting the exact same times. As soon as I switched to the "morning" track condition, my times became slightly better.

I noticed the wind was pointing northeast as well (the Evening track condition always had the weather pointing to the southwest.)

I don't know if this is simply a placebo effect, but maybe there is something to it. Either way, I'm struggling to find a consistent line for the bus stop. Each time I go into it with a different strategy.

It appears so based on this one screenshot. Not knowing what happened a few frames before though.

The solid white line would need to be immediately backed by the yellow rumble to be considered part of the track.
