      • 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.

    • White lines denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.
    • Green surfaces are not track.
    • Note the following picture for instructions related to the pit lane entry;

    Steward's Comments:

    Our last trip to this wonderful track was with a less powerful road car which allowed us to learn the track and the lines. This time we have a super fast GT500 car that will respond well to precise lines and some minor tuning. The down force provided by this cars aero package will seem unreal at times but beware, pushing too hard will end in tears - 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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 25 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 21st 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.

    The timing of this combo couldn't have been much better...
    It's the exact same as the Time Trial for the Apex Online Racing league signup.

    But yeah Gr.2 is my favourite class on this game always fun to drive so look forward to it.

    Just to get some of you going I made some small adjustments to the car whilst testing that seemed to stabilise it's characteristics somewhat. These are by no means final but anyone that wants to get going quickly then here's a starter for you to work from

    Code:
    Toe 0.05 out / 0.10 in
    Aero 745/1075 - suggest winding some of this off as you get familiar with the car
    LSD 10/30/20
    Trans = 174mph/280kmh

    After an evening of doing track experience, a few races & selling a few of my garage cars I’ve finally got enough money for the car. Now to sort a paint job before I take to the track

    Feels quite fast whilst driving it... but it's obviously not :dunce: I decided to try it out with max DF and minimum RH front and rear and got this lap. I'm miles of a decent set so far... will update my findings if I can magically put something together, but don't hold your breath! :lol::tup:

    GLA this ones erratic coming off the rumbles :scared:

    As per usual, I've put in a stock run first. I love this car (I love all the Gr2 cars) but I think it's going to be a tough week for me. I hate that final turn!
