      • 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.

    • There are several track cones that are not driving marker cones. Contact with those cones will result in a DQ.

    Steward's Comments:
    We are going back to back with the double header TT and the races to go with it. Check out our latest special event over here. :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 125 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 125 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 125 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 20th 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,

    I'm mainly using it as a credit price.. I'm not trying to say the cars handle, drive, or have any bad characteristics. I posted that because I always look it up to see how much a car costs and thought I'd post it..

    I got you next time fam

    Makes sense. But now I am genuinely trying to figure out why they think those cars handle that poorly, and I also wonder what they think of some of the cars I tested and rejected. Have you driven the FF Clios? :scared:

    Not in GT Sport, but I used to play FM3 with some guys and we LOVED the Renault Clio's so much that we made a weekly race series on it...


    I had a moment yesterday when I thought of you Kevin.. I was driving through Chicago and I got passed by 2 bikes.. a Kawasaki ZX10R and a 6R.. they weren't speeding.. probably going about 10 mph faster than me.. they got up about half a mile in front of me.. then a pack of Porsche's passed me, but they were gapped fairly good.. First one was just a plain Jane Porsche.. he was running about 100.. then about 45 seconds later I got passed by a turd brown 911 GT3 that I will admit sounded good.. my guess was he was 140+.. they got to the bikes and I heard them down shift twice and take off.. completely destroyed the Porsches.

    There were 2 more Porsches behind the GT3, but I dont care enough to guess what models they were..

    It actually made me get excited.. I've wanted a ZX6R forever and this confirmed it more. I wish I would have known and I would have recorded it. It was awesome.

    124 is actually quite a bit of fun..........

    I only used that track for this reason, though. I figured it would be bead for participation, may as well use it when there's an alternative.

    Ok cheers will look into it, I've gone from little work a week ago to 50/60 hours a week for time being and were I've not really played in a long time its getting me a while to get up to speed, the enzo one I've done about 700 miles just to get a semi reasonable time lol, barely touched the Porsche one yet one session so far, I need to pull my finger out lol, some days been working to 3am and just struggling aha, not making excuses!..
    Suzuka used to be one of my favourites and prefer the slower style everyday like road going cars I guess

    Adam suswillo is pretty rapid, he very nearly won GT academy the year I was at boot camp 2013, and was the only finalist in the UK to beat me on the gaming side that year as well as beating me on day 5 elimination shoot out in a nismo juke at Silverstone- Stowe circuit (real car) to make the final 3 from UK.
    Meanwhile since hes done some great things I've seen, kind of wish I stuck at it back then, but I lost alot of heart for gaming not long after and started doing other things, alot had changed in 7 years.

    Anyway looking forward to this one but will try and find the time on a 80 hour working week this week, I must be insane!

    Suzuka East was my favorite track in 1999 on the Viennas Prater Sega Ferrari F355 Arcade. I had the honour to keep the track record quite a time there. Looks still like a fine sim with it´s 3 monitors :sly:[​IMG]

    26.333
    18.425

    In first sector I was already 0.5s faster but together they count.

    Pretty good to drive, no drama whatsoever. Real challenge will just be trying to push around the circuit, which is kinda always the case because Suzuka.
