    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
    • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.
    • 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.
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
      • 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 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]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The green sections behind the rumble strips are not track.
    • There are several track cones that are not driving marker cones. Contact with those cones will result in a DQ.
    Steward's Comments:
    The R32 Skyline is a GT series icon and fan favorite. It's a nice fit here, and has just enough slide on the comfort tires to make things fun and interesting. Have a go, you'll be 20 laps in before you know what hit you!

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 23 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, May 7th 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.

    First 10 laps, this is a good one to learn the difference between controller and wheel. I struggled big time last time we were here, looks like I am way slower than the rest of you but I normally am.:lol:

    This car is far heavier than it looks! It’s giving my arms a work out while I’m wrestling it around the track! I’ll post my initial splits later, I had to rush off to work so didn’t get a chance to check my replay.

    I’ve stuck with the Japanese theming on my livery this week :sly:

    Have you started a new game save now Ph1sh? I remember some bugged game BS last time you raced? more of the same or did you create a brand new game save?

    sorry had to ask how you fixed the problem from the last event when the conclusion was that you had a bugged gamesave.. is it still the same gamesave? pretty pointless to to try and race against you if it is :confused:

    Nice to see you here. :tup:

    I was in a Sport lobby with you at Tsukuba in the GT-R, I think around 4 weeks ago. Unfortunately I spun when I dipped a tire on the dirt approaching the second to last turn a few laps in, and you got caught in the crossfire. But I think you took the win in the race after that one.

    Not sure that was a conclusion, it was speculation, as we did not believe he intentionally cheated.

    He had start/finish line speed in the Supra at Blue Moon Bay which he was not able to replicate online or in subsequent attempts.

    We've seen Jordan in plenty of online races and he had proven pace on GT6. I'll let him speak to his game save, but I'm not ready to suggest starting over on that is the only way to go.

    I was just curious what has changed in his game save now considering the last events confusion versus this event and what has been done to stop the issue maybe happening again? :tup:

    My intention was not to offend and I know Jordan is a fast racer no doubt there :tup: Just a weird situation that I never understood and wanted to know how and if he fixed whatever it was? just in case myself or someone I know runs into this issue in the future? Thanks for the reply Kev... Cheers! :cheers:
