      • 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):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • White lines denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.
    • Permanent track marker cones (Red) may not be touched.

    Steward's Comments:

    Another chance at a FF car in race trim that has driving characteristics that are atypical of the format on another real world circuit that has to date, beaten me. Another hill to climb so I guess this really will be a case of "best foot forward" for me at least. Enjoy!

    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 3 sectors: T1, T2 and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 20 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 16th 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.

    CAUTION - This track has a fixed bollard at the second apex of the chicane. Hitting this will result in a DQ so please don't hit it :tup:

    And if you knock it over, it's best to restart your session. Best lap replays will show you hitting it if you drive through the place that it was to begin with.

    Definitely! That caught me out on week 5, especially as the said cone turned out to be further into the track than I had thought :guilty:

    I know I should already know the answer to this but I’ve got a mental block.
    Are we still ok to have one or two wheels over the white track boundary lines?

    @Nerazzurri same rules as every week. At least 2 wheels on track. if you have two wheel on/inside the white line = good, 3 or 4 beyond the line =DQ

    @Argon That’s what I thought! Don’t mind me, it’s been a long day & for some reason I got it into my head that we couldn’t cross the white lines at all :indiff:

    and if you think the TT was fun on the GP track...it was stupendous in the Room C N24 races....I went to bed at 0130 and would have stayed for the last one but I had to race today in the Ring Rat 1.5 hour with Gr2 Cars. (www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/ring-rats). Great combo...even with the Mousey Track!!

    Another Gr.4 car that I haven't used yet. Ran for a good 50 miles in this session and managed to lower my time quite a bit. That being said, there's still quite a lot of time to find, especially since my first sector was quite poor in my fastest lap.

    About the bollard, will it always move if you hit it, or will it stay in place if you just glance it?

    Stupid bollard.

    Always liked the FF’s. But this one is killing my right shoulder for some reason. May have to dial back the ffb a bit.

    Bollard's cones and any others I find no problem as I don't cut corners, slower yes, I find the FFB rattle kills my hands :grumpy: So I try to stay clear.

    Dial back FFB I understand randy, mine is on 2. but I may go to 1

    What gets my goat with this game, you buy a wheel like TM T500rs connect to computer and update firmware go through the settings and set the wheel to your own preference. then connect to GT Sport and it sets the wheel to its own values. :(
