    Steward's Comments:
    Laguna Seca has been on the game less than a year, but we are trying to make up for all the TT's we missed! In this case, we will have 2 running concurrently, as we prepare to run our Seventh special event on GT Sport. This one will be different from any we have ever done, a road car multi-class enduro race. For the time trials, you can run one car, or run them both, your decision. But both times will count, and you'll have a full 2 weeks until the submission deadline for either. If you don't like Laguna you are out of luck for a couple of weeks. But I think you will find these enjoyable.

    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 150 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 150 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 150 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, October 19th 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.

    I think Brian @tzracer is also a Laguna hater. He hates it because it's not Road America. :lol:

    Shifting at the limiter, it's 54 mph in second and 81 in 3rd. I am only using 2nd for the final turn.

    BB is zero for now, I really don't find myself wanting the car to do something different, but I may try negative out.

    The gears in combination with the +power makes it interesting.

    The 'sector syndrome' allready kicked in :lol:
    3 tenths left overall,and that's about it.
    Propably staying in third gear is a good option,unless you're capable of runnin' the perfect line spot on.
    I know I can't :banghead:

    The problem with second gear in many of the corners is you get wheel spin with the steering wheel still on lock.

    It works fine in the final corner, your wheels are normally straight with the car in high RPM.

    But in the turn 2 hairpin, I end up spinning up the wheels at 50 MPH, so any gain is negated by either wheel spin or a short shift.

    And it's pointless for the corkscrew entry, the downhill momentum will make up for anything you lose being in 3rd.

    Lost time on uphill left hander to corkscrew and nearly screwed up final corner so there is still time to find.
    Nice flow with this combo. Good fun in cockpit view also.

    I short shift into 3rd exiting the turn 4 right hander after the bridge.

    And brake at the next to last marker sign for turn 5 uphill left.

    Shift to 4th at 81 mph leading into turn 6, partial lift to make the corner. Brake at last cone and start of entry rumble, white line mark leading to cork. You want to take it in 3rd and accelerate through the corner.

    Momentum is king here.

    Sorry, short shift exiting 4 is into 4th.

    Only use second in final turn, upshift at 54 mph.
