Steward's Comments:

The last time around we were at the Nordschleife we used a Ferrari. This time we'll be using a classic car on Comfort Softs to get the touristenfahrten feeling! We hope you all will enjoy this combo after the truly epic 24 Hours race last weekend.

Thanks to @PASM for the idea and to @Gravitron @MadMax @GTP_Patrick1 and @RacingLine for the Photorun.

For the guys who may like a lap guide. This was my hotlap the last time around.

Good luck and Have Fun!

Viewing your T1 - T9 Time Splits:
  • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
  • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
  • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
  • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
  • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
  • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
  • To post your T1 - T9 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual split times, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

Standard Clean OLR Rules:
  • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

    • 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 hybrids
  • 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.
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 laptime
The following information can be discussed in this thread :
  • The first 9 splits: T1 through T9 times
  • Any settings discussion

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 124 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
  • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
  • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
  • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
  • 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 XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
  • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
  • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:

  • The deadline is Monday, June 6th 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:

  • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
  • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
  • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification


Good luck, :gtplanet:

Did Polyphony ever drop the ball with the engine note of this one:yuck: Sounds like a Vespa.


I can't tell which takes longer, me getting this car around the Nordschleife, or typing in my splits....
Great combo and yep I am also getting deja vu from the old license test :cool: 👍 early splits to get on the board..


Loads left all over the track just wanted a clean banker, 2 more 10 hour shifts and I get a few days off work and I'll be all over this like flies on doodah!! 👍

Great event and the car drives brilliantly for comfort tyres :cheers:
Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! :bowdown::bowdown:

Can't get enough of the 'ring. 👍 If I recall correctly the "race" version of this car was used in a driving mission in GT4?

EDIT: @roamer2629 thought I would also share. (20,170 km's)

This car was used in license test . IIRC it was international A license graduation test , to drive a lap behind pace car . Race car was used in Special/super license graduation test
Yes the car handles nice on comfort softs, just control your corner entry speed.
Going into the corner just a bit to fast and the car just goes straight. :dunce:

I already thought i got my lap for submission, but 2 mistakes at the end of the lap, so i missed my goal
by 0.5s. :irked:

And that is how you call what track it is.

Edit: my goal this week is to drop at least 5000 KM, equivalent to 195 laps if my maths is correct, or 28 laps a day.

I reckon that will be quite the challenge. To my knowledge in 2014 @ the nurb 24h the distance record was set at 159 laps. Also taking in to account that this car produces slower laptimes than the gt3 winners back then I recon it will take the better part of 48 Hours...on your own. But good luck with that and let us know how far you've come!:gtpflag:
First lap with a couple of wobbles on the throttle

New splits, new goal, and it's only monday :lol:
Trying to get better from a nasty flue so couldn't have a better week to run this 👍 (Nice birthday gift too, turning 42 on Wednesday :rolleyes:)
BB at 4/6

Yes! I love this track. A few years ago I completed a lap at the Nordschleife with Sabine Schmitz ( a fairly well-known racing driver in germany ) in her Race-Taxi. That was absolutely crazy. When I was jumping out of the car I did not know which way is up and down :lol:. I hope I'll find some time at the weekend for this cool combo.
