    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.


    Steward's Comments:
    I have a race at Laguna Seca on the weekend following the GT Sport Release.

    It's my favorite track IRL, and an appropriate finish to Gran Turismo 6 WRS. This game featured the highest number of time trials in the history of the series, may that record never be broken.


    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 & T3 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual split times, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

    (Best Lap Replay Icon)

    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.

    [​IMG]


    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 laptime
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 3 splits: T1, T2 and T3 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 195 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, October 16th 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:

    Awesome kombo to end GT6 @EDK!!! :gtpflag:

    Kev's Kombo's :bowdown: are all I've known since I found the WRS at the start of GT5 in 2010. But looking 10+ years ago, we have @Sphinx, @Sjaak, @Vaxen, @JoostBaksteen @daan @Famine @Jordan and others I'm forgetting :dunce: all having a passion for organizing this thing we call the Weekly Race Series, on Gran Turismo.

    Looking forward to see what you guys can do with this little hummer. :D

    I painted my wheels French Racing Blue:

    I only see Cyril, Kent and Boombexus missing from the list.. all were WRS admins before Sjaakie iirc? I was fortunate to be there for the first WRS and pretty much remember all the Admins who took the helm through the years.. Good times! :cheers:
    I will miss having this hot-lapping outlet but Evolution is inevitable even in gaming ;) Thanks for the golden years guys! :bowdown:

    I won't be running this last race but hope you all have a blast and finish the series off in style :cheers:
    Best Regards to all my fellow racers past and present! Thanks!

    I'm very proud of the chance to pick a couple of combos over the years that Kevin, Lucas and the rest of WRS royalty have given me. Above all, I always doubted that true friends could be found in online communities, and WRS has proven me wrong.
    GT6 would have been dead long time ago hadn't been for this guys, who were always willing to sacrifice their free time for all of us to have fun. For that, my sincere THANK YOU :cheers:

    I expected better though, considering I've spent at least some effort five times before around the 'screw.

    I had to disqualify a lap due to pulling a Casey Stoner in the final corner :O which was a couple of tenths quicker :banghead:. So there will be more to come over the weekend for sure.

    Absolutely the best combo I've had the pleasure of running in my time here :D:tup:.

    :cheers:

    I will not be doing this last week of WRS @ GT6 just because I no longer have the PS3. But I have to say that these series opened my eyes to online racing and above all gave me virtual but true friends. Thanks a lot and I hope to meet you, dudes and dudettes in WRS/GTS. And a word of apreciation for @EDK, representing the "legacy" and the closing with a golden key :gtpflag:

    Oops, been running completely in stealth mode. I started running the TT on Monday and have been struggling to get back up to speed, currently down to a 1'03.9 I think (may be .8). Just saying in case I get a good time and post splits close to deadline, I don't want to just slot in and annoy anyone.
