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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.

Time verification:

Save your ghost replay and keep it at least a full two weeks after the event's deadline:






  • Racers, named by the OLR Admin staff, (if any) will be required to submit a replay for verification
  • any submitted time is subject to a time verification request
  • when a time verification has been requested, the concerned racer must provide the correct replay within seven days of the request
  • failure to do so will result in the removal of the unverified submission from the results table
  • video replays are not accepted as a form of verification





Good luck, :gtplanet:

Huzzah, another track I'm none too comfortable with.:ouch: I for one can't wait for GT5, because Prologue is full of tracks I've never been, or aren't now, fond of.:P But I do appreciate the work going in here, and without the weeks I'm not good at how else will I improve? Plus I like the Focus, so game on.:)

Again online event.. gotta pretune it in arcade then. :ouch:

I think no splits will be coming from me before next weekend,
because arcade race splits won't be the same thing. (and I don't really think I'd remember them)

I might reveal my average splits done in arcade race while not gaining from slipstream,
just to give a hint how I'm doing.

like that track and like the car, i esp like the OLR that tie's in with this just like Daytona Road last time. Its so much better spending your time racing against other drivers and just having the odd session to get your hot lap. Thanks Sjaak having an enjoable OLR as well really is great 👍

It feels so good to line up against a load of Honda's in your lone Focus just to beat them all :)

first splits with a tune I picked up from GTP except for the gears. Played with different options but at the moment lowest weight is best rather than power. Had a go at trying to tune it with Final gear at max but settled for it around the 4.066 mark but can't remeber my final number. Will post tune when I've got the PS3 on next.

T1 29.654
T2 51.241


seen a T2 of 51.1........

Great combo Sjaak 👍 this FR setup helps me enjoy the odd mountain track more than ever. Can't wait to see the full version of it in GT5 ...

Gave it a first go last night using stock setup which works fine to me. Feels like gearing-wise it's very important to have the 3rd just right in order to pull it thru the long righthander before the tunnel.

In OLR (great addition to the combo) I tried to find some GTP friends but sadly there were none. Came up 1st (5), 2nd (3) and again 2nd (3) which felt rather nice :cool:

First splits and new leaderboard coming up shortly.

EDIT board initiated including my first splits of

30.630
52.860

I've been fiddling with the setup but so far the only stuff that really seem to matter is camber and gearing. Tuners please?

Very sloppy 7 lap run. I setup the car nicely, getting in and out of turns it likes to get tight and slide the middle. Gears I think Ihave spot on too, but I will be experimenting.

T1- 30.228
T2- 51.972

Priorities are changing, and it doesn't look like I'll be competing this week.:(

2nd 1.987
3rd 1.488

Quite a disappointing turnup this week ... must have to do with those new online events, AND of course Event 03 (E3 ??? :lol:). New splits after 10 laps:

30.608
52.507

Still struggling with the setup and every time returning to default ... very frustrating.

EDIT thanks to Kenny's reminder I started using Paulie's excellent tune resulting in a .7 gain at the line with splits of

30.419
52.305

I only lengthened 4th gear a bit (maxxing out at the final straight) and shorted 2nd (more revs in the hairpin exits).

Board updated.

Nuke, here I come! :cool:

Steven, did you try the tune that wotzit linked for us?
I used it with the posted gearing and made improvements quickly.
Seems a bit tight in the corners to me but I made no changes, yet.

Sorry, but with dial up I don't do the on line events until I'm back home in mid Sept.

Good luck to all and we'll see you next week!

Hi all it's been a long time since my last WRS, about week 14 i think.
The talk of GT5 at E3 has rekindled my interest.

Anyway first run.

T1 29.972
T2 51.474

A bit more time to find if i can only put 3 good sectors together.

Hey Darren, super-nice to have you back among us after quite a while 👍 you'd better do some serious hotlapping 'cos you don't belong in that division mate :D roll on WRS! :D
