    • 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.
    Steward's Comments:
    A car that's probably overdue for us to use, on an iconic track that will challenge racers of any skill level. @suprajef helped me put this one together, I was planning another race car and he talked me out of it. This is a great combo, have fun!

    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 26 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 28th 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.

    Once you get used to the fact that this car constantly drives like it’s on ice, it’s actually a really nice combo! :D

    Also I finally get to use one of the very first liveries that I made on GTS

    Never liked the car, neither in real life nor in game. I don't know how much time I'm gonna be willing to invest in this. First splits from a decent lap out of a 15-lap-session this morning:

    37.355
    22.159
    50.507

    At least half a second left for me. BB -1 TC 0

    And here's my livery for this week (well, not mine actually, I got it from Discover):

    Exactly. Welcome to the WRS. Also check the tires, we do not always use the default tires and some people **cough** (you know who you are :lol:) have been burnt on this before.

    For those struggling to get rid of TC while using the DS4, this is the week to do that. You will need traction to keep the car from spinning, so keeping some throttle through the turns, modulating it with the triggers, becomes imperative. If you have TC on you will not have enough power to prevent the car from just sliding sideways to an almost full stop. Lifting will send the tail east every time, so you can induce that and go back to throttle right away to pull the car out of the turns. Easier said than done, I know, but the car's tailhappiness is not a result of throttle this time, but of personality. This one shines at the edge of control, great lesson on turning with anything but steering.
    That said, my kind of combo :tup:

    if only I could get used to using the triggers on the ds4 for gas and brake.
    very difficult with no pressure sensitive x and square button.
    TC-2. If I can drive this with TC-0 it will be a miracle.

    I have three of this car, including the purple one. I've never really wanted to drive any of them, but I suppose it's an opportunity to figure out which color is fastest.

    That was a shock for me during beta. Knew I had to give up the configuration I had since GT2. Glad I used Assetto Corsa to train myself to the new setup.
    Sorry dude but there's no way around it :nervous:
