    • 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.

    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Yellow and Blue Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.

    Steward's Comments:

    Great sweeping turns out in the beautiful french countryside, a peaceful setting for you to shatter with the thundering sound of the Subaru.

    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 131 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 131 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 131 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, June 1st 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,

    Threw away a few tenths in final sector sadly. Man that left handed up the hill and final chicane are lap killers!

    Great splits - I need to figure out the T2, had a few .2s but mostly they fall in the .3s. Alas, just got a cracking T3 for my best lap that now puts my T1+2 times a little slower. Time to get to work!

    This one looks like fun, I'll be able to run this one, I can never really run the ones at the ring, the time it would take me just to be semi competitive is impossible unfortunately, but this looks perfect

    Looking forward to "pumping in some initials"

    @thesmallpup I'm coming for you this week bro!!!!!

    I picked up on this last night and sent a test submission to check that aspect.

    The test submission worked fine, so that's the good news.

    I have a note out to our leaderboard expert to get the splits parsing working again.

    EDIT: Fetchy is fixed.

    Thanks oink :tup:

    If I can try and offer some help for sector 2? for me the key is the 2nd turn after T1 that sweeping left hander on the downhill.. will try to explain :)

    try to approach that bend right of track and brake early and roll for a small blip in 4th gear until you reckon you have the tight inside line
    when you feel it's right drop to 3rd and floor it early before you actually mount the rumble and white knuckle it flat out all the way on exit...
    the car does feels like it's going to slide off track on the right hand rumbles! but when you hit the right line once you will keep hitting it imo ;)
    the next sweeping right hander gear up to 5th on entry and then drop to 4th to adjust the car for the exit to start heading towards T2 :tup:

    This car is basically about using all the gear, early braking and super early on the throttle with confidence knowing it will straighten up if your line is right..anyway I thought I would explain what I reckon might be losing you a little speed through that section :tup: No vids allowed after T1 so I can't show unfortunately...

    ...But I can show the start of my almost lap last night :( Here's my best attempt that had me killing both my best splits only to misjudge the uphill bend at the end and went off on the uphill rumbles and almost started crying with the horrific event :lol: It was quite a few bloody cars lengths ahead of my best lap!!!! :banghead:



    Hope not too long winded that :p Good luck with it mate :cheers:

    All great stuff thanks. Yeah the left hander is an awkward turn as it's got a very blind exit so can be hard to judge the apex and acceleration point, have run wide there on several occasions, but will have another look at it with your comments in mind. Great T1 vid, you take turn 1 completely different to me, have been getting fairly consistent .0s in T1 but if your down to a .8 I might need to try your strategy of staying in 3rd, the rest is pretty much as I drive it, that long left hander always the trickiest to get just right though.

    Tough break on the uphill lefty - such a tricky corner to keep the speed through, especially as I'm sure you've had a few times, if you take it too tight, the curb has a horrible sharp edge that lifts the inside wheels up and you loose everything, too wide though and off you go into the grass of doom, or have to let off and loose your speed. :cheers::gtpflag:

    Love this circuit: you can make it into 2 or 3 long curves, fab.
    Weird problem with replay though: I saved my best lap, and it shows the correct time in my library, but when I play it, it plays my last lap which was slower... am I missing something simple here?

    A really technical circuit that I've not driven in ages, feels more like a TT track for me, great combo!
