    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • 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.
    • 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.

    • 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.

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):

    • Red and White Rumble Strips, Blue Painted Rumble Strips/Concrete, and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The sections of gray hard surface behind white lines are NOT track. The white line designates the track boundary in those sections. I'm not sure there's an advantage in using them, but let's not find out.


    Steward's Comments:
    We're back onto the Sardegna road layouts this week, with a controversial Gr. 4 car on a bit softer tires than usual. This car has of course had BOP advantages at times, and a history of a lot of use in the Sport Mode races. It's a nice fit at this flowing track, and we gave you a little more grip than usual as well. Have fun. :tup:

    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 118 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 118 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 118 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, March 2nd 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,

    EDK, I know I asked this when we were racing today, but the rules seem to say that blue is legal. Is the blue around rumble strips considered blue concrete? Only place I really get near it is last corner.


    • Red and White Rumble Strips, Blue Painted Rumble Strips/Concrete, and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.

    Sorry, you are right.

    I think I made the blue legal because there are places the rumble runs out and there is only blue left.

    I just copied the boundary rules from the last time we ran here, so had forgotten about that.

    I’ve never driven this track before so I need to suss our T1 as I’m way off the pace! I’ve got a suspicion that my T3 isn’t great either, but at least my T2 seems to be where it needs to be. Good fun combo though, I’m going to enjoy the challenge of this one :mischievous:

    26.787

    I've gone for a classic touring car livery on this one & in true touring car style I’m already getting plenty of air under the tyres :lol:

    Easy. Power in the wall, hdmi in the tv, ds4 in the hand. Enjoy.

    I like race cars, but usually not FF. Works ok here.

    BTW, how do you download pictures?

    Probably the easiest way is to go into your library, and one of the menu options when you click triangle on a photo is to export to USB.

    The other option is to share the photo after taking it, and it will show in your activity feed. You can see activity feed photos here. That's actually what I do when posting a TT, it's a little more efficient to work in bulk that way vs the USB.

    I’m getting the hang of T1 now. Still a good half a second off my optimal.

    I presume you’re using the right car? Not the one in the picture on the leaderboard? I realise that’s probably a stupid question, but your times are so fast!
    Or perhaps your car settings aren’t standard?
    If not then I can only bow down to your brilliance on this combo mate :bowdown:
