  • The solid White Lines are the track limits unless immediately backed by the Red 'n White Rumble Strips.

Steward's Comments:

I've had my '02 BMW 330i sedan for over 20 years now. This one drives like mine in the snow with tons of oversteer out on an empty farm road. Have fun keeping this one tidy and out of the barriers.

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 youre still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if youre still undecided, run the lap again.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 14 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 ### Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week ### 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 18th 2022 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 GT7 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.

Is the BHP you have correct? My M3 ‘03 is showing 339bhp instead of 347bhp you have it as :confused:

A performance advantage may be gained and not all participants have a wheel/setup that has a clutch.
I personally dom't see how a performance advantage can be gained.

I'd love to participate, but not if i have to drive automatic in a manual car.

I think when you're in under engine speed, clutch can help you to reach correct RPM.
You can use manual car but without using clutch, only selector..

You can drive in manual mode, shifting using the paddles on your wheel as an example. You just can’t use the clutch pedal when moving between the gears. I agree with you and driving in automatic mode. I could not do it.

I know how it would work, but it just feels so wrong that i personally would rather not play it at all

There have been times in which a clear advantage can be gained, and that's the reason we outlaw it. Not everyone even has a wheel, and some have a wheel without a clutch. We are trying to make the competition as level as possible, and simply disallowing the clutch is easier than keeping up with when it does or does not provide a specific advantage.

I think the 339hp one is the M3 you can find in the used car lot which has around 84,499 km of mileage.

However, some may have an M3 from a previous cafe event which comes with 0 mileage. So maybe that's the reason for the discrepancy. Does mileage affect HP figures in GT7 ? I'm sure they do.

Just an idea, what if you bring up classes for people with and without clutch users?

Clutch users would compete in a different class?

I'm not trying to change anything, just throwing random ideas at you :)

Mine has also 339hp and it was new, i'll recheck this evening

I think mine was won in a cafe event as I don’t remember buying it

Some early splits:

29.960
1:08.125

339 HP, and 523.34 PP (with the stock SH tires), is what the car comes with, whether it came as part of the menu books (a possibility in book 21, a guarantee in book 22), bought out of Brand Central or bought out of at least the rotation portion of the UCD (where it was freshly made available this morning at a 19,100-Cr. discount from the 84,000 Cr. new-car price for a model with 52,505 miles on the clock). Except for "menu-book specials", which have "normal" oil condition, engine wear and body wear, used cars don't have any penalty versus zero-mileage models, at least in the first bit of miles.

I think not
Are we ok to cut the white pit-in line or do we need to go around it?

I saw the title of this one and thought it was the circuit experience.... but thankfully it's a fun combination instead. Some early splits.

29.617
1:06.896

Fun fact: I spun the car before I even started my first lap.

The R8 was terrible here in my opinion.
