      • 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.

    • NOTE: Permanent track marker cones (Skinny orange and white corner markers) MAY be touched, knocked over, obliterated, and stomped on.

    Steward's Comments:

    Numbers are staggering on this one, few cars have more horsepower than kilograms really. Long straight made short by sheer power, like any proper train would do. Enjoy!

    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 114 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 114 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 114 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, February 3rd 2020 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.

    Good luck,

    This sounds like fun!
    How much is the car? Do I need to sell most of my garage to buy it?

    Not had massive interest in the last few combo's.. Probably as I'm at the 8 week mark from quitting smoking and it's been quite depressing to say the least after a 30+ year habit of a lifetime :p Literally one session and done with a few previous events tbh :indiff:
    but for sure I will be all over this like a fly on the stinky stuff to try and lift my spirits again :D

    Wicked looking combo guys! :bowdown: :cheers:

    WTF is this car on?!?
    A few tester laps, i’m way off the pace but once I learn how to tame this beast I can see loads of room for improvement! This is definitely going to be a fun/ frustrating week.

    I’ve had to resort to turning the TCS on to 1, though I’m sure I’ll turn it off again later in the week.

    The fastest on all three sectors on this lap though I’m sure I can gain a little bit more somewhere if I can hit a perfect lap

    First 30 lap run at this one. This car is bonkers. I’m going to have to really work at this one. I’ll probably be dangling at the bottom of leaderboard by the end but you don’t get better by not trying.

    Still haven't seen a 26 in sector 2, but this was a short session due to the update.

    I've been using 3rd gear for that hairpin after the long right hander and the last corner, can just floor it as soon as you get it pointing in the right direction

    Gained some time.

    Hate the car, understeers like a pig. Not a big fan of Gr1 cars anyways.
