Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
  • Yellow and Blue Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • Solid White line denotes track limit unless backed by rumble strips. Dashed lines such as those on the Mulsanne straight do not count.
    • In those cases, the reddish colored tarmac is NOT track, while the black tarmac is.
  • Permanent track marker cones (Green, Red and White) may not be touched.
Steward's Comments:
This week's event ties an infamous record in WRS history, the most week's run on one platform, which was previously owned by GT6. And now as Toyota are going for their fourth consecutive nearly uncontested 24 hours of Le Mans victory, we help them to celebrate. The car is a nice drive here, which makes a lot of sense. The battery tends to fully de-rate several times per lap, so no need to worry about frequent resets. Just run some laps, and have fun.

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.

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 first 6 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T6 times.
  • Any settings discussion.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 195 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 195 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 195 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 23rd 2021 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.

Was just thinking about getting back into this and then this is the first thing that pops up. Basically, I am definitely back this week 👍

Edit: Wasn't this a previous combo? Might be confusing this with another I was in, but I swear this is familiar.

Enjoyed this run, inspired by the race circulating in Le Mans right now. On the Racing Medium it feels like you can push quite hard without being punished a great deal.

First run now that my eyes aren't glued to the stream (Well streams as I had multiple going). Definitely feel like there is some improvement out there.

Bit of a scruffy first sector, but otherwise a good lap. There is some time in there in the Forest Esses, Indianapolis and the last Ford Chicane. Don't think I'll string that together, so I'm submitting. Good luck to those doing a Banzai later :D

Anyone else noticing the leaderboard not updating? Clearly I see multiple sector time postings in this thread yet only 2 show up.

Fetchy is still a work in progress after the site update. We'll look into it.

I’ve been working on the ‘Submission PMs’, and pushed some code this weekend (it's not fully ready yet, but i'm getting close). Doing so I broke some stuff here with the thread parsing trying to unify the 'time parsing'. That's been fixed and the board is up-to-date again.

Also I found an edge case that broke the private conversation handling because Fetchy didn’t expect there to be users without a PSN, that’s been fixed and (supported) conversations are now being handled again (like registration).

So the 'Submission PM' is still next on the list, as said, progress is made and I hope to release that soon, so we get the results on the board again as well :)

:cheers:
