    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.

    • 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.

    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Green surfaces behind rumbles are NOT Track.
    Steward's Comments:
    Back to one of my favorite tracks, and certainly the one I am most capable on. And in a car that's deceivingly fantastic. The 997 on SM rubber manages to keep its taily character without trying to bite your head all the way off. It just takes some little nibbles on the slow corner exits. Have fun, you know I will. ;)

    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 140 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 140 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 140 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, August 3rd 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.

    Porsche 911 GT3 (997) '99

    #404# - error - car does not exist


    The closest I have is the 911 GT3 (997) '09 - 428 BHP and 1,395 Kg
    So, I am assuming it's a typo?

    Any 911 combination is cool in my book, a GT3RS round Tsukuba - even better!

    Just taking a break after 30 mins. I'll post my splits once I'm done for the night. I keep asking the pit crew when they're going to install the brakes for this thing, but they're staying silent for some reason. :) Currently running BB to max on the rear. It's going to be a long night.

    Ok, this is either going to be a long week of trying to eek out thousandths from the hairpins, or a long week of doing grinding to get all the credits back from having to buy all of the last months cars. Literally can't decide.

    First splits (which I am not ashamed to say) ain't as slow as I thought they would be, though the T2 needs work, probably through the right under the bridge thingy and the left sweeper. Even in third it wants to loose the rear in the left sweeper. "Thought these things had grip?" Then again, that was probably last last thing that went through James Dean's brain too. :eek:

    19.018

    Saddling a pony-show like this, with a (let's face it) crap diff and zero weight over the front wheels, with medium sports tires is difficult to say the least. And devilishly devious to-boot. :tup:

    Another quick 15 laps or so.......

    Found that braking and UP-shifting to 3rd to go under the bridge, though counter intuitive, works wonders. :crazy:

    I'll probably try some laps later today.
    I may not be fast in it but at least it'll look pretty :)

    Well....not a huge fan of this car. After 15 laps, it grew on me. It’s a great challenging combo. In my opinion the car could stand to lose about 100 hp and be controllable and fun. Just my opinion

    Excellent combo! :cheers:
    Funny that I spent this last week in the 86BRZ combo here, got a 107.5 for 39th in the world so far :)
    There are some similarities here like same track and the boxer engine but that's where the similarities end! :dopey:
    Seriously challenging this has that magical blend of understeer And oversteer :D
    Tried various BBs, settled on BB+2 :tup:

    I did the same. Got mine down to 1:07.9 with a possible 07.7 on the cards, but pulled out once I realised that the clutch was being used to gain the top times. :tdown: I thought the advantage of the clutch was dealt with. :confused::confused:

    @suprajef might have some insight on this. He normally finds out how people are finding their way through these loopholes.

    It was definitely dealt with at one time.

    Does fetchy pick up split times from edited posts?

    Probably another tenth/half a tenth of "low hanging fruit" before it gets into the grind for thousandths

    The clutch was banned for all sport mode races. But people were shifting up twice and down once to get a better shift. Not worth the time imo.
