    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The short, track boundary cones on the left hand side before the main straight may NOT be contacted.

    Steward's Comments:

    993 911s are Porsche's royalty, and we love them even after PD made really clear to all of us that they are supposed to oversteer. Drive by right foot combo indeed.

    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 119 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 119 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 119 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 9th 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.

    The name is my fault. Autopolis has always made me think of this. So we combined them.

    With Porsche involved, you should have named it Autopoopolopia.

    Sorry. I really hate Porsche.

    Where I live, I've never seen a decent Porsche. Its always the Cayennes and what not. All those people seem to think their Porsche makes them high and mighty above everyone else. Basically a social status badge. I rode in a 1984 (or something) 911 Carrera when I was a teenager. A DR bought it for my buddies mom if she would leave her husband and marry him. So now he drives the Porsche around.

    And they're made in Germany. I dont trust Germans.

    I didn't give this combo a try but that would mean, you'd have to restart once you've h it one of the cones ?
    Funny post
    Why that ?
    I don't like Cayennes, Macans and the Panamera either, but the 911 is still (even nowadays) a really nice car.
    But for myself I opted for a Vette (which might please you :D)

    That would probably be best.

    The way the cones actually work, if you knock one out of line and then drive through the place they would have been, the best lap video will show you hitting the cone.

    Honestly, we mention this just in case, but I don't think there's a big risk of hitting those. It's not advantageous to set up wide there.

    I really don't think that was a serious remark, was meant to be funny I am sure.

    Which Vette do you have, a C7?

    No, C6 (really dig the round taillights and furthermore the absence of distracting (extra) electronics
    also the interior is less cramped)

    Like this combo, great drivers car IMO, you can feel the car moving around with good input from the front tires. It’s a fine line for sure with keeping it tidy yet fast.

    I’ve owned two American built cars (Mk 1 GTI and X3 M40) and six German built cars (VW’s, Audi’s and BMW’s). Good experiences with all of them.

    Like the C7 Corvette...

    Another track I’ve never driven and a car that needs to learn some manners!
    Starting to find the sweet spots for the car and getting faster.

    I’ve got a feeling I’m not going to do too well this week, but at least I had fun making my livery and I’ve finally found a car that I can drift :lol:

    Its like going to the gym, hitting the bench press and your spotter doesnt help you, shouting 'ONE MORE REP' when the bar is about to fall on your neck.

    Didn’t have time to make a good run on this tonight. But I will definitely be putting some laps. Fun car to drive. Would really like to never see that off camber final corner ever again.

    Beast of a car but good fun to look for that tiny edge where it goes quick without losing the rear too much.
    A theoretical .1 left for me but will need tons of luck to catch that.

    Definitely more time in the middle sector for me, pretty happy with me 1st and 3rd sectors on the whole.
