    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • No contact with Walls visible or invisible.

    Steward's Comments:

    One of the last unused Gr.3 cars out there, the Atenza might seem a bit boring at an easier track. Well, not here. The Mazda is planted enough for you to focus on Bathurst. Enjoy!

    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 3 sectors: T1, T2, and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 156 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 156 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 156 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 23rd 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.

    BB -2 to start, a little bit of an adjustment this one. Does not like the curbs much.

    Here's a T1 vid for this round and a little tip! This car loves 2nd gear exiting the tight turns.. It's trickier and can be erratic whilst applying it but the exit speed compared to 3rd is so much better :tup: I use 2nd gear 4 times during the lap ( turn 1, turn 4 the roundy after t1, then at the very bottom of the hill last left before the long back straight and finally the very last turn before the finish straight... Hope this helps :cheers:



    I was also using BB-2 :tup:

    Me too, I have a love hate relationship with the mountain and have never been very fast here, but I'm feeling masochistic this week so here we go! :dopey:
    It really blows my mind that the 12hr Bath actually happens, racing at night in traffic up and down the mountain, only Down Under does this make sense! :D

    Agreed, it's a crazy circuit. Too bad the elevation changes don't come across that much in the game. But it's still a hairy ride when you're pushing for every last tenth.

    Have you looked through your settings? You seem over 2 seconds off in the first sector which is super short + just 1 corner. Looking through your history of performance that doesn't make sense.

    Whoever decided to run the hards with this - you are a genius. It really drives and feels how I imagine a V8 Supercar does. Really good fun!

    I also need to drive this track more its so so good, happy to have finally got on to the combo.

    19.142
    42.630
    31.559

    BB-0 and 3rd gear exiting T1.

    Edit - just to check, from my understanding of the OP we are allowed behind the white line on that tarmac cut out on the exit of T1? It is tarmac so i presumed its was all clear.

    Thanks @StanNz and @mohitraina91, I was using the gr4. What a dumb a#*.
    :banghead::banghead::banghead:
    You save me from the embarrassment of a red flag for submitting with the wrong car. :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    Had a lap that was two tenths faster but replay ends before finish line. :mad:

    No white line rule. Just stay on tarmac or rumble. The concrete behind the rumbles at 1 exit is not track.
