    • You get it. Rumble Strips. Unpainted Tarmac. That's It.
    Steward's Comments:
    We missed Laguna Seca so much that we are visiting again after just 14 event weeks. We are cooking up something special this week, with an online LAN style Pick and Mix event, featuring 6 Gr. 4 cars that will be used on 6 tracks. This is one of the possible combinations you could use for the online event, and we're giving you an extra week to the deadline, with a second event running concurrently. This one is a beaut to drive here, have fun!

    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 123 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 123 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 123 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, April 6th 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,
    :gtplanet: & The WRS team.

    Test splits. Want to make sure Fetchy is dealing OK with 3 events being live at the same time.

    I may have some time to run this before deadline.. I would say that I barely have time to wipe my ass because I've been so busy, but that would imply I am actually able to find toilet paper........

    I would imagine you have been working quite a lot.

    Keep in mind, this one and the Ferrari at Spa are running in parallel. So both have the same deadline day, April 6th.

    That's 11 days, by my count.

    Maybe you can find some TP that fell off a truck. ;)

    Yeah, working 6 days with 1 day off (only because its required by federal law that we get 34 hours off to reset our 70 hour work clock) I don't mind the work so much, just paranoid I'll get this virus from going to so many places..

    I can't afford the Ferrari, and I'm bad at Spa. It's like a mini nurburgring to me. I think what makes me shy away from it is in past iterations, wheel users could take the big up hill flat out, but on a controller, lift was needed. Don't know if its still the same or not..

    Its funny how I've delivered tons of TP, but when it's my off day and I go to buy some, all I can get is 2 rolls of .5 ply that couldn't take diarrhea off a dead cat.

    They generously gave us 8 rolls of it this morning... and paper towels. Not even name brand.. lol

    Horrible track for me, does not flow.

    Hope the car has a good air filter, with all the time I am spending in the sand.

    First go at it and I completely forgot how tail happy this thing gets, especially in the Corkscrew.

    Its been too long!

    First decent session to shake the rust off!

    22.988
    38.504

    I've seen a 38.1/2 T2 when I can nail that fast left kink but it will be tough to string it together with the rest of the lap.
    I forgot just how much fun it is to be chasing those last few tenths :lol: :cheers:

    BB +2

    Also, has anybody tried to "straddle" that red kerby thing on that fast left uphill kink? I honestly think its probably the fastest way but the chance to nail it exactly is extremely tough!

    If you don't have internet connection then unless its on the time trial car selection roster I think you would have to earn the credits and then either do that each time ( :scared: ) or just leave your PS4 on :sick:

    You can't buy any cars without having internet connection which is stupid, but I may have had a stroke of luck I can contact wirelessly via my landladys broadband, but its through 2 brick walls so signal is very weak, just got to wait for it to update as it not been on for a long time (reckons 11 hours).
    Think itll be far to slow to play online but atleast I can buy the car and do what I need to do until broadband is sorted in a week or so.
    Cheers

    Hey Dion. I straddled those in 4 and 6 on the road car combo we ran here in Dec, but found that too tough in the race car. I am turning in later than normal and working to be accurate.
