Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
  • Blue and Yellow Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • White lines (solid or dashed) denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.
  • Painted concrete and tarmac is not track.
  • Permanent track marker cones may not be touched (Green or Red).

Steward's Comments:

With the 24h of Le Mans coming next weekend it seems fitting that we run a TT on this track and use a car that amongst others symbolises a move to hybrid racing at it's most competitive form.

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.

  • 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.

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.

I had abit of a chuckle when I saw that. Reminded me of when the game first came out and I jokingly asked a friend "Wonder how they'll feel about the Porsche and the Toyota"
 
  • Blue and Yellow Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
  • White lines (solid or dashed) denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.

So, I'm having a little trouble figuring out the boundaries. Is the tarmac outside the white lines track or should I stay inside the white lines. There are parts of the track (don't know corner names), like the chicanes, and the sharp right on the second half of the lap, where the a lot of track behind the white lines. Also, the rumbles are so far behind the lines that I'm not sure I can actually get to and from the rumbles without invalidating the lap. Not sure why I'm so confused this week.
 
Me either!
If it's rumble you can run it if it's plain tarmac outside the white lines you can't UNLESS there is a rumble. These instructions are no different to every other TT.

There are a couple of places on track where it is a little confusing as to what is a road marking and what is the edge of the track (such as the final approach to Mulsanne Corner).

The marking around the whole track are inconsistent but honestly if you understand our general rule about whites lines I really don't get what is confusing. If you want a decision about a specific area post a picture and I'll tell you if you are clean or dirty.
 
Ah it’s good to be back on my favourite track, though it’s been a while & im definitely rusty on it! Still a ton of time to take off, but here’s my initial times to get me on the board.

I’ve gone with a poker & rum theme for my livery this week, which incidentally is a great way to watch the Le Mans 24hr :sly:
 
First time I have ever had to sell cars to get money! I was half Mil short, turns out some of the cars I bought have since been gifted, down to only 224 cars now. Is there a limit?

Spent a lot of time here on previous gts, what a way to relearn it in this car! Those corners in the last sections come up so quick! Conservative lap so far to get a clean lap on the board
