    • 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.

Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
  • Red, White and Green Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • White lines denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.

Steward's Comments:
Trying for a really fun race car combo on a world circuit, something that's easy, approachable, and addicting. We've not yet used this Gr. 2 car, it's the only one we have not made it to. It's loads of fun here on Medium shoes at Monza, the braking zones get shorter and it turns in like it means it. I hope you enjoy your bowl of Spaghetti as much as we did.

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.

full

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 120 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 120 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 120 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 16th 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.

Question for track limits. Just ran some laps. Wanted to look at how close track limits are for later runs, easy to avoid the orange kerbs but finding it very hard if not impossible to see if my tyre runs over these small white patches at the end of the red white and green kerbs? Are they ok?

It would seem like you can't really cut them heavily without clearly being on the orange part and therefore invalid, but it is possible to be on the red white and green at the apex, but still possibly be clipping it on exit ( although as mentioned it seems really hard to check :confused: )

That's part of the rumble.

Great, thanks for answering @EDK :cheers: it seemed like it would be fine, but because it wasn't serrated and multicolored like the main section i wanted to double check.

Ran about 20 laps, not done much mileage at monza on GT Sport so sure there will be plenty of time to come off along the way. Really nice car, took a bit of adjusting to the 'slightly' different grip level from last week :lol: BB-0 and haven't really figured out the best shift point yet.

BB-0

Struggled for consistency in the chicane before the two lesmo's, can find a little in the last corner too for sure. Busy day tomorrow so probably won't be running again till thursday at earliest now.

Really clicking with this car though, my favourite of the newer Super GT's for sure

I struggle for the right line and speed there,,,,,
First couple of laps:
32.835
33.207
2nd sector is :banghead:

BB stock

I did an ingame screenshot of the entry 2nd chicane
(tagged that w GTPWRS120)
to let you check if this way of driving is according to the rules
it is very similar to this one but less tarmac underneath the tires

It's hard to tell with the resolution you used, but as long as part of the contact patch of the right front tire remains in contact with the outer rumble there, you are good.
