    We came up with this one in an online race room Saturday evening. It's a nice road car combo, and should teach you some things about car control.

    Viewing your T1 & T2 Sector Times:

    • 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 Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector 1 and sector 2 splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the second split location.
    • 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.

      Time: X:XX.XXX

    • 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. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, December 11th 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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.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 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 (Check Needed)
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    IMG_1077.PNG Is that tire deformation or is it just me? If it is, does that mean your loosing speed or have pushed the tire to its limit and not loosing speed?

    And..... how the heck did who ever is driving chip the paint off the wheel. :confused: :lol:

    First try:

    27.xx
    19.xx

    Finding it quite hard to stay smooth and stable with the controller, sure it would be much easier with a wheel - might have to give the motion controls a go again with this combo.

    Nice and fun combo though! Liking the short laps so can get plenty of practice in!

    Edit:

    New splits after another 30 laps.

    27.075
    19.194

    Tried motion control, still not for me.

    Looks like Fetchy doesn’t like edited posts for new splits to avoid doubles...

    :odd: i suspect the top drivers will go this track flatout from second corner to first corner next lap...

    At least me trying to get the feel of this combo ran on TC2 few laps (not the best time though, as expected :D ) and really had just two moments to brake ... in the First double corner :eek:

    Here are my initial splits

    27.459
    19.390

    Edit: seems i will be slower without TC than with it :scared::nervous:

    Shift into 4th as soon as you hit 86mph, but don't let her bleed too deep into the revs at 86mph either.

    Very very fun combo. :tup: :D

    Pretty challenging in the cool and almost controllable way. :lol:
    This extensive throttle control and weight shift excises will do my old 'fumblefeet' good. :tup:

    First 50 km session:
    26.762

    This is going to be a fun one with close times. Ran 5 laps during my lunch break.

    26.708
    19.123

    BB -2

    Balance with the throttle for sure, very pointy car. Need to clean up turn one and the exit to the straight. Not sure what the best shift point is just yet.

    Good choice this one...
