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

Steward's Comments:

Go back to where all the great racers began: on a kart! Okay, I know what you're thinking, but give it 10 laps (approx. 10 minutes) and you will be hooked! This is extremely fun and the rage doughnuts are very smokey...

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 youre still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if youre still undecided, run the lap again.

The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Discord 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 GT7 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.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 17 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 17 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 17 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, August 8th 2022 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 GT7 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,

Have I missed something? I’ve submitted my time in the usual “0:00.000” format, but the fetchbot is saying my time is invalid :confused:

Edit: I’ve just reread the message and it says the week number is invalid not my time. Also we don’t appear to have a splits leaderboard which I presume is why

Doesn’t look like the leaderboard has been set up yet. Fetchy will be with us soon!

97 thousandths from my optimum, all of it in sector 1. Pretty sure there’s at least half a second left overall, and I’m not going to be terribly surprised to see someone dip beyond that. This thing’s enough of a handful that I could still be wasting massive amounts of time.

I am going to give this one a go with the controller. I am at our cottage for a couple of weeks and brought my PS5 with me. The wheel stayed at home.

Initial split

@robisme don't get discouraged using your wheel this week as the kart is one of the most difficult things to drive (imo). I have only used a wheel since I started playing way back in GT 3 and it took me 20 min to adjust to the kart and I'm still struggling with the hairpin.
Thank you, I'm a hard to convert type, used nothing else but controller since GT1, plus the age thing and "old dogs learning new tricks" I was even hard to convert to manual tranny, If im feeling lazy I'll still use auto lol
We should do more with the cart, its such good fun.

I was going to ask about the white and orange at the right hander at the bottom of the hill, when I realised the only time to be gained there is airtime.

Incidentally, being new to this, is it usual for the final results of previous weeks to be delayed? It looks like week 14 is still provisional and 15 and 16 not yet reviewed.

The whiteish with orange rumble strips at the bottom of the hill are not track. Have a look at eggstor’s photos above. That is clean through that corner. You must keep at least 2 tires on the red and white rumble strips. At least they were white. Lots of rubber down in that corner!

We are a little behind on the past posts. People on holidays or otherwise occupied. We will get it cleaned up ASAP.
