    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • 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 hybrids.
    • 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][​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • White Rumble Strips, Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The various green and/or yellow sections are not track.
    • Rumble strips with grass between track and rumble strips are not track.

    Steward's Comments:
    This is a great track layout to let the car be the star, when a car is a bit too much to handle otherwise. The F40 makes a wonderful sound, even if it doesn't have any brakes. And certainly I think you will all agree that it's much more of a winner than the SF1000. Have fun!

    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 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 147 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 147 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 147 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, September 21st 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,

    pretty weird feel at first after last week :lol:

    25.076

    seen a few 24 . 9xx so there's a bit left. Hope to get up early tomorrow to run a few laps. Else that might be it.

    1st gear into those turns helps a lot with reducing speed :cheers:

    This one ain't for me.
    Especially since I just turned left walking round the rear end of my car with weight on left leg, and nearly passed out as my bum knee gave a crunch.
    Turns out that having zero cartilage in knee joint and 50% cartilage under patella doesn't like that move. Doesn't help that I felt sick this morning, so couldn't take med's, so had no pain relief in my system.
    It's now 12 hrs later, have taken med's, my knee's blown up like a balloon, and still hobbling round like a 52 yr old with a bum knee........funny that.:boggled:

    Prob gonna take days to get comfortable, so wipe out this week.

    Hi guys, too bad we are not getting much turnout these days. My kid is finally old enough to do some time trials but there is nobody from D3 or D4 left :(

    It does disturb the car. I struggle with the last corner most laps.

    It's a tough one,don't get it right every lap either.
    I use the shadow on the track as brake line,and bb 1 at the font.
    Short shift to first gear for turn in.

    couldn’t repeat yesterday’s 2nd sector in any lap today. Still good but I miss that tenth there to be all happy.

    Good luck all! Don’t think I’m getting home before the deadline...

    For the 2nd sector: I tend to use all track through the chicane. That sausage doesn’t kill me at all when I’m already in 4th gear.
    Then the shadow under the bridge (11:30 tracktime) becomes too late. I use it as my marker. Brakepoint is about 1-2 carlenghts before. Depending on the speed I have build up.
    Final turn as described above. :cheers:
    Edit: BB0 and I shift way before redline. About when the rev bar reaches the suggested gear box.

    Thanks, I am braking about a car length or so before as well. I am using more of the yellow curb now too.

    Slower in the sect.1 faster in 2. It's only one corner right, how much time can I possibly lose there :lol:
