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

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Surface behind the Rumble Strips is not track. Example: the final corner.

    Steward's Comments:
    It's the American Independence Day today, and we are putting up an All American Combo to celebrate. The car is an easy drive here, with just a couple braking zones. Have fun trying to find those thousandths.

    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 1 sectors: T1 time.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 137 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 137 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 137 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 13th 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.

    Yeah, I thought it would be good since it seems some people don't like the FF.

    Really fun combo, interestingly my fastest lap doesn't contain any fastest sectors.

    For now have settled on BB +1. I thought negative would aid braking stability and trail braking for turn 1, but it was too much of a liability elsewhere.

    +2 is too wild to deal with the last braking zone in particular.

    Not the biggest fan of this configuration as I lean more towards the totally-not-homestead-miami-knockoff Infield A. That aside, car actually doesn't feel like plow as it used to so that's something.

    22.154 - 1st session done, wouldn't have thought this was my kind of combination but figured I need some track time to get used to GT Sports Physics after some time on Project Cars. BB-0

    Edit - For such a simple layout this track is a lot of fun! Looking forward to the race with this combo :)

    Not optimal T3 (T3?? The second corner that actually needs braking for :lol: ) so better overall lap time to come for sure. BB-0 still.

    Edit - 22.062

    Into the thousandths now...

    New and last splits.
    Finding this frustratingly addictive and annoying at the same time. The short laps in a grippy-ish car are great, the lack of tire grip and the walls are a pain in the rear.

    Anyway :-
    22.580

    with the best part of 1/4 sec off at the line is what i will settle for.
    Looking forward to a trip to Suzuka
