    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Tarmac painted red or blue between white lines is track.
    Steward's Comments:

    A chance to try the new Alpine on a track with sweeping turns, tough chicanes and huge elevation changes that should make this car feel right at home.

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

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 21 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 23rd 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.

    Just ran a couple laps, never ran the track before. Fantastic fun, unfortunately I'm out of town for a few days this week. Hopefully I'll have some time to run this beauty.

    Only had a go using my pad, but it seems like a lovely handling car on a nice challenging track. Can’t wait to give it a go with my wheel.

    In the mean time here’s my livery for this week, I didn’t realise how difficult it’d be to take a picture of a car with colourshift paint :odd:

    I like this car. Nice balance, predictable oversteer. This track looks like it needs about 1000 miles to learn though!

    Initial splits for me. It seems the car doesn't like too much steering input...

    Is anyone using a lower gear than 3rd?

    Thanks for posting some reference splits. :tup:

    I thought my lap was pretty tidy yesterday, good to get some validation that I'm not way off.

    Curious what you mean, if you are saying flat car as in keeping the throttle pinned or as in avoiding body roll? My perspective is that with relatively low power and Sports Soft tires, there are many places that you can get all the way back on throttle much earlier than you think. I found the -5 BB helped me to keep the car rotating and kept it from running wide on corner exit in these scenarios.

    No, 3rd gear is good. 2nd will slow you down.

    I find the lower amount of steering input to be especially necessary in the track to track transitions. Brake early, get your turning over with and completely straighten the wheel for exit. You can pick up loads of time in those sections if you get them right. There are other turns for which feeding in a lot of lock is just fine. The long, high speed sweeping turns, the car seems fine with both pinning the throttle while cranking the wheel to make the turn without running wide. As mentioned, I think the -5 BB helped there. I am talking about turns like turn 1, the first left after T1 split, and the long left hand turn that's part of the Miyabi section of track.

    I am also winding it all the way out, it seems to get a little surge of power right before the limiter, I am listening for that and then shifting.

    I can't put all my sectors together and keep messing up in the final one.

    Won't be able to do much more on this challenge as I have to go away for a week of testing.

    Enjoy guys and good luck :)

    @EDK when I say flat car I mean minimizing body roll as much as possible. When it rolls we are out of control, which is not good.

    :cheers:

    Yeah, I think you generally have to be judicious with curbs, and the climbing esses in sector 1 are especially troublesome.

    I was really thinking of it more as the steering input to throttle input ratio, but will consider this as well in my next session. :tup:

    After being driven demented by sector 1 at the Nurb it's nice to hit a track with more of a flow to it.

    I enjoy this circuit so much more than Nurburgring. Did around 50 miles and got some initial splits, still heaps of time to find (that left hander at the start of sector 2 has always lost me time).
