  • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
  • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.

  • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
  • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
    • 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.

  • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):

  • Green, Yellow and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • Solid Green surfaces are not track.

Steward's Comments:
This week, we will run one of the special event cars, with a 2 week deadline. We are not running the GT car, it was already used in a Time Trial here. NExt weekend, we will put up an overlapping, unrelated TT. Check out our latest special event over here. 👍

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 126 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, May 4th 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.

Lots left everywhere but a reasonable banker for now.. Here's a T1 vid for whoever might want it 👍



Not sure if a button is mapable for the KERS or if it's not useable? I never used it anyway and will play it by ear :P:tup:

The Kers kicks in automatically, I don;t think you can map it.

@PASM may know more.

Max Power HP: 380 HP (Detuned - Requires Level 2)
How do I do this ?
I bought Level 2 and adjusted the power Level
But I have KW, so I cannot see exactly what's it in HP
So what's the percentage to what I should adjust to ?

It was 75% power exactly on my UK version 👍
Thanks, I will confirm on my console and add that detail to post. I was using the numbers from the online thread, @PASM tested and confirmed all of this.

One of my weakest tracks combined with a car that needs it‘s batteries re-charged every two laps are not a good idea for my usual 30-minute WRS approach on Monday afternoon :lol:

You get better battery regen if you set BB to the rear more, ;)

I've learned that more BB AND coasting (in the right corners) really maximizes how much charge you can get. With this track being so corner heavy when it comes to the tightness, there is lots of opportunity to take advantage of those.

I used BB-3 straight out of the box and it worked for me :)

Will try different next session 👍

I do like interlagos, but not driven grp 1s much at all. 3rd sector needs a lot of work.

That T1 is pretty much on the absolute limit with this events settings whilst staying clean!! I think you best check your settings mate and adjust the car to 75% power ;)

If I am wrong then please accept my apologies and a special :bowdown: as I done a T1 that fast by going offtrack by error and decided to continue to see how fast it would go at T1 :P:tup:

Hahah. Thought it was a bit good! Will try again at 75%! Probably rubbish. How do I delete that one?

I am having an issue while submitting for the event. I did what the instructions say but I didn't get a response for a long time.

Can someone help me solve this?

Yes, others are having the same problem, and we are looking into it. We'll post in this thread when it's fixed.
