      • 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.

    • NOTE: Permanent track marker cones (Skinny orange and white corner markers) MAY be touched, knocked over, obliterated, and stomped on.

    Steward's Comments:

    Time for a change of pace after the McLaren, the Megane actually turns unlike some other FFs in the game, and it's got enough speed to get around Fuji. Enjoy!

    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 136 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 136 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 136 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, July 6th 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,

    Already put 85 miles on this car from new, don't know how many laps that is, but it's a few.
    Best I have so far is:

    26.930
    39.312

    Personally given the relatively slow pace of the car, and the tyre choice, "IMHO" would prefer the short course to the long one.
    That being said, it is growing on me quickly as the mile count shows. :tup:

    Not a fan of FF. Only owned one, had it 6 months (driving 42 years).

    It's actually pretty funny that they call the other course the "short" course. I think the difference in length is less than a tenth of a mile. The "short" track just lacks the chicane after the T2 split.

    On previous versions of GT, the tracks were called "Fuji-F" meaning the Formula 1 car layout, and "Fuji GT" meaning the Super GT and other GT cars use the layout.

    I thought the chicane layout fit for this one a bit better, but rest assured the other track would not be much shorter........

    Another track I've neglected in the past, the car makes this pretty approachable though!

    This is an ideal combo for me to compare which driving view better suits me. Currently using bonnet view, but will switch back to my usual bumper view once I feel I can no longer make further improvements.

    Which of the two views do you prefer?
    I find the perspective from the bonnet view causes me to miss braking markers that I would use in bumper view (which I normally use myself)

    Less than a tenth to find so far, hopefully I can still chip away at it. Can't imagine what it must have been like in the GT5 prologue days, running this track every 5th week or something :lol:
