  • NOTE: Permanent track marker cones (Skinny orange and white corner markers) MAY be touched, knocked over, obliterated, and stomped on.

Steward's Comments:
So PD decided to call this track Fuji short on this iteration of the game. But really, WTH? It's like, maybe, 4 feet shorter than the version with the chicane.

So I will continue to call it Fuji GT, and as an additional measure, we will use a GT. The car is appropriate here, it was one of the only race cars on GT5 Prologue when we first had this iteration of the circuit. So 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.

(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.



All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 166 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
  • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
    (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 166 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 166 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, February 1st 2021 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,
:gtplanet: & The WRS team.

Classic Prologue combo :cheers:
Spent literally countless hours on this in the Prologue days trying to stay on the in game leaderboard :dopey:
Love Fuji and prefer the GT layout over the F1, that corner becomes a really fun challenge :)
Looking forward to racking up some miles this week :cool:👍

I put a lot of miles in last week on the 'Ring trying to work off the rust from my long layout. Despite being my favorite track I only managed 3 decent laps all if witch were dirty by the slimmest margins.

I've never been particularly good at this track especially in the final sector. Guess these will be place holders until the big dogs show up. :lol:

Really nice drive :cheers:
I'm amused the engine still lets you over rev way past red, vintage glitch that one :dopey:
Not sure yet if over revving it is faster or just shifting normally, it's got good torque down low too :)
BB 0 👍

Glad to be back @billyjoebobx took a break to play some co-op games with my son then I was sidelined from using a wheel for almost a year with shoulder problems that thankfully is now being controlled with medication.

I've seen a few in sector 2 but still struggling to get consistent sub .7xx in the 1st sector to go with it.

First for me in a while on a wheel and this time with desk (My poor Knees are thankful for no longer having to bare the burden :lol:).

Also the first time in a while for using the H pattern (the last time was ironically with the Ford GT40). Gonna be getting back into these abit more often, need as much mileage as I can.
