    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.

      • 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.

    • 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:
    A quick visit back to one of my favorite tracks before the game goes away on us. The Super Formula on stickies is a lot of fun here. :tup:

    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.

    (Best Lap Replay Save)

    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 154 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 154 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 154 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, November 9th 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,

    This is very early, but already beat my test lap from yesterday after 4 laps.

    Running this with the F1 wheel rim that came on the Fanatec Direct Drive. Normally use the BMW rim for road and GT cars.

    Already found 7 tenths to my test lap. This feels close to some sort of limit, but completely unsure of what the week will bring.

    This car is absolutely bonkers.

    There is only push to pass, and it's not available in TT mode. Only in the race.

    BB -3. Tried -5 and it was wild, but -3 helps on braking and corner exit.

    Already hit my initial target, so time to find a new one.

    You don't need to run that wide, get the wheel straight sooner and hammer down.

    Also important to get to the apex.

    Thanks for the advice Kevin! This is what I am attempting to do but seem to get a little drift and the rear tire slips into the green abyss!!!!

    Going to have another session tonight!

    First laps, BB-0

    Man this thing just grips on the softs, blink and you've done a lap!

    10.566
    13.023

    Middle sector is tough and a I've been cautious in the last sector so guessing that's where the time is.

    I have a race tonight but can't wait to be back at this.

    Edit - just checked the board, man, everyone is flying round here! Especially Ron and Kevin, hard to match your middle sectors.

    Couldn't resist a few more laps. This was faster but really scruffy - 2 wheels on the dirt/wheelspin out of T2 etc, I really want to beat it now just so I don't have to share this one :lol:

    Its Tsukuba, you were always going to be rapid here :lol: it was a challenge just matching yours and Ron's splits. Pace is good from everyone here this week too.

    Might've chosen the wrong combo to return to, but I'm finally NOT buried in School work...for now.

    It can get pretty wild at low speed, especially trying to put the power down with some steering lock still in, but man its a blast round here.

    Submitting these, might banzai tomorrow.

    10.626
    13.172

    Took me a long time to cross this particular barrier. Glad the lap was relatively tidy.

    Still a tenth or a bit more off optimal, but incredibly difficult to put them together here.

    BB -4
