    Steward's Comments:
    My home town is Portland and PIR carries a lot of history for me personally. It was the first track I watched a motor race at in person, the 1984 CART (Indycar) Portland 200. And it was also the first track I raced on in real life, back in 2011. You can read a bit more about that here. Next weekend I will be racing at Portland once again, so I thought it would be an appropriate time to bring out this fantastic and true to life track that @NingDynasty created. Enjoy! :tup:

    Viewing your 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 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 Skype 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, and T3 times
    • Any settings discussion

    Splits Sharing

    • WRS Participants have traditionally shared splits as a way to reveal their pace without providing the full lap time until the event deadline. Posting of splits is not mandatory, but is considered fair sportsmanship.
    • WRS Admins reserve the right to request posting of splits from members who show a pattern of avoidance or deception in this area.
    • If you fail to comply with a direct request from an admin to post splits for a current or future event, we reserve the right to disqualify your lap from the results.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 183 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 Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • 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:
    [​IMG]

    • The deadline is Monday, July 24th 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, :gtpflag:

    Nah, we've used it before, and I figured out pretty quickly that the track was more fun on GT6 with a race car.
    Have never driven my Challenger on that track, and same comments as above. ;)

    Nice combo @EDK
    Hope to get better splits once I improve a few lines and braking points.

    I ran a bit yesterday and wasn't able to get any splits posted, but I'm about .2 tenths behind Ron at T3 with a goal in mind. We'll see what next weekend brings :)

    Love this time trial, the car really suits me and the track is a blast

    First splits after about 45 mins. The long right hander which sort of double backs on itself between sector 1 and 2 is really tricky, trying to figure out optimum line through there and its almost between gears, it understeers in fourth but kind of bounces off the rev limiter in 3rd...Hmmm

    Real life approach is 3 apexes and leave yourself left for the left hand turn 6, as it's off camber.

    My fast lap in a supercharged MR2 5 years ago.

    *shrug* I've seen over a tenth in sector 1, don't know specifics for the other two sectors but they were probably a bit worse than 1.

    Slower everywhere except for split 2 and total lap. At least I know I can take more time off.

    Really need to find a brake marker for that sharp turn in T3 and the turn in at the last section.

    fetchy would not take my submitted lap. Invalid downforce front and rear but I haven't touched those settings.

    Likely just a glitch, the moderators usually sort those things pretty quickly! Always good to let them know, so cheers. Only thing could be if it was a car already in your garage which you'd used before, but I'm sure that wouldnt be it.

    I'll take a look. It might help if you add me to the convo with Fetchy so I can look at your replay settings.
