    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
      • 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.

    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Surface behind the Rumble Strips, such as the green surface found in several corners, is not track.

    Steward's Comments:
    Tsukuba is one of my favorite tracks all time, and I really adore the BMW E30. And to boot, to have a road car with comfort tires, in an incredibly balanced combo, I really must be dreaming that we have this available to us on GT Sport.

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 19 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 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 just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, April 9th 2018 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.

    Looks great Kev! I didn’t even know we could use either of these in combo! (Or at all. I guess I missed something).

    I’ve been running this car for several days now on this track, so have a bit of a head start this week. This was the best car (E30) I ever had back in the mid-90’s.

    Great car, pure drivers car in my opinion.

    Could?....you mean Would. That car was notorious for being tail happy. I think that's why most of us who owned one loved the car so much it was a joy to drive and easy to be a total hooligan in. I spent so much money on tyres with mine :lol:

    Been trying to improve these early splits, but did too many things in between.

    T1 is easy to improve, the rest of the lap not so much.

    Agree... Got bit a couple times in the wet not even pushing it much. I always kept the tires in good shape and would replace when the tread started to get low. My wife drove it during the week and would warn me as I approached a highway off ramp on the weekend : “It stepped out a bit on me yesterday and I was going a bit slower than you are”. Dial in a bit of opposite lock as I rolled off the throttle a tad, catch the drift.

    On dry mountain roads with no/little traffic was heaven.

    Great combo! Didn't expected Tsukuba comming so early after joining the GTS family of tracks (absolutely love this track!). Initial stint of 20 laps (42 km) and the M3 is so fun to drive, not a single spin, easily to catch any oversteer.

    21.234

    Will see how much to find. ^^

    My 2nd car was an '84 3 series. I can't remember if it was a 318 or 325. It was an ugly orange red color. It was a fun little car. Sadly, didn't own it very long. A girl ran a stop sign and I t-boned her. They totaled the car :indiff:

    Actually had a string of accidents at that time. All 3 ran stop signs or red lights. 2 I t-boned, 1 t-boned me. All 3 totaled. The BMW was the last one. I wanted to quit driving, I was only 16.

    First splits for me after a daily marathon session. Not a bad lap, I'm quite happy with it.

    17.185
    21.020

    Sadly I won't have as much time this week to run as I did last week. We'll see what I can achieve.

    I probably did not make it obvious in the OP, but we've never had this car, and we've never had an E30 BMW in any form.

    It was the most requested car on the forum, and probably in the history on the GT series.

    The closest thing we had was the MB 190E 2.5-16 in GT5 and GT6.

    Great 400-450 PP car in GT5, bad/terrible in GT6 along with the ruined Audi R8 in GT6. Still a bit mad about how terrible these two cars were in GT6.
