Steward's Comments:
I'll be driving a road car version of this race car in the ChumpCar World Series at Daytona International Speedway on the upcoming May Long Weekend (Or whatever you call it where you live ;) ). That's the historic motorsports weekend, the one with Indy and Monaco. Am I excited? Hell yes!! Can you also have some fun here? Absolutely! This car is a fantastic ride here, a dream IMO. It's also the car I used in the first race I posted on this here Planet. :D


Viewing your T1, T2 & T3 Time Splits:
  • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
  • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
  • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
  • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
  • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
  • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
  • To post your T1 & T2 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

Standard Clean OLR Rules:
  • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

    • 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
  • No hybrids
  • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
  • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules

Thread rules:

The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods):

  • Total Lap Time
  • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime

The following information can be discussed in this thread :

  • The first 3 splits: T1, T2 & T3 times
  • Any settings discussion
View attachment 154197

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 17 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):

  • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
  • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
  • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
  • 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 body: "get entry"
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the body of "remove entry".
  • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
  • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:

  • The deadline is Monday, May 19th 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:
  • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
  • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
  • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification


Good luck, :gtplanet:

I was watching some NASCAR today and was just thinking Daytona would be a nice track to have a crack at. Hope to get a bit more seat time this week 👍

No Tuning also means stock settings, or are we allowed to change settings? Sorry if it's clear and I missed it EDK...

By the time I get to this either later today or Monday, I won't be anywhere near the top of the leaderboard. Oh well; why give myself false hope? :dopey:

Did you mean to post the details twice, or can't you wait to go fishing in Lake Lloyd? :lol: Seriously, good luck, and keep the driveshaft below the windows.

Not sure how that happened, but fixed it for him. ;)

The only thing you can change is Brake Balance.
Correct. 👍

Road Course Daytona (Week 34, XKR Coupe) was the first WRS I didn't submit after I started due to my bad splits, so obviously I need to give it a try this time.

One thing is for sure, I still can't get the hang of the track. This is a first lap, crossing start/finish WAY slower than my shadow. Still won by a mile and a half...

I always drive at 10:00, because that's when it's the lightest on every track (and I prefer that.)

I tried that, but the shadows are killing me on the oval. It's extremely difficult to judge the distance to the walls.

So far I've driven at 13:00 and the shadows are better, still looking for the sweet spot, though.

Nice combo, gave it a quick run. 👍 There is definitely way more on track, about 4-5 tenths.
