Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
  • White Lines denote Track Boundaries except where backed by Blue and Yellow Rumble Strips. Keeping things simple here for the few of us that run these TT's now, the solid Yellow section behind the Blue and Yellow Rumble Strips is NOT considered track.

Steward's Comments:

Pick this up in the used car dealership on the cheap, throw on some Street Soft tires and you are set. Great car in my opinion; I almost bought one used (Merkur XR4Ti, U.S. version) in the late 80's. Decided to keep my 1983 GTI a bit longer. Great track, awesome car...

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 youre still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if youre still undecided, run the lap again.

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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.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 GT7 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.

Early run at this, still missing some of the corners and hitting the apex. Not sure on the best shift point, winding it out for the most part now.

Nice extra challenge this week with a track new to me. At the moment the first corner is somewhat hit and miss and despite knowing turn 6 is probably the most important corner, still not getting a great exit from it.

Winding it out like a rental car and not going lower than 3rd gear.

Still missing some corners…need to look further ahead while on track.

Before I post updated times, can I check it is legitimate to go onto the blue and yellow behind the kerbs at turn 5? I think it is given it is not solid yellow, but want to be sure.

Came so close to not getting back to inside the still-yellow line after the lap at the end of the actual rumble strip.

Found some of the lost time in sector two. Still can't connect three good sectors but this will do. Submitted with these splits.

Another eventful edition. Ran the stock Sierra (with CS tires), looked at the splits and found myself thinking hard "what the hell am I doing wrong?"
Beside that, not a lot of work for a new track (welcomed a new puppy into the fold).
Turn 1 wasn't a problem for me, the flicks were where I usually lost a lot of time.
