Steward's Comments:
@mcsqueegy cooked this combo up, and it was pretty tasty. :D

Viewing your T1 and T2 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 2 splits: T1 and T2 times
  • Any settings discussion

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 127 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 27th 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:

Is there another one of these cars I'm not aware of? Mine can be and is painted.

Shelby Series One Super Charged '03

This one was great at testing. Very easy week compared with the last two. Hope the loop is not too hard on us ds3 users because we usually loose plenty of time there :nervous:

This Shelby on comfort tyres is the car of choice for FR-limited seasonals 👍 one of the best of its class in my opinion.

Thanks to @Ed_Night 's suggestion of this car, hopefully the home we found for it makes for a competitive week! If the jump doesn't kill us all that is! :mischievous::lol:

Oh I love this one! I'm not so good with racecars and tuning...this is my preferred racing. You have to throw her around to be fast which is fun.

Almost like the s2k but more forgiveness of the track
up a tree
This is me for a few days slower slipts .3 faster


@suprajef i'm undecided about it either I just shift to 3rd lift a tiny bit till I'm near 160 kph then shift back up to 4th or stay in 4th and just lightly break down to 160 and try to catch the inside. I'm trying to stay around 160/161 kph as I go round, trying to, I drop to around 155 before coming back up 160 normaly as I start to go around. Judging when to lift that tiny little bit before flooring it on exit is tricky. And then... yeppiee ki yay as you go over the jump :lol:.

This is going to be so much fun to race hope we get a sunset or sunrise or both, the track seems to what it. dawn till dusk 💡
Thought it was about time I got cracking at this. This car seems to have quite a lot of grip even with the grocery getter tires, but I'm still losing a bunch of time round the ring. (loop?, hoop?, round circle thingy.)
