      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires in-line would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • 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.

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • White lines denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.
    Steward's Comments:

    A fantastically grippy car on one of my favourite tracks. This week will be about pushing the limits of mechanical and aerodynamic grip beyond normal expectations as this car just keep hanging on even when you think there is no more grip to be found.

    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 11 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10 and T11 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 35 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, July 30th 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.

    Good luck, :gtplanet:

    BB=0, the car has a ton of grip so push it hard. Can be a bit skittish on kerbs but is manageable.

    Still lots to find.

    :banghead: :banghead::banghead: the leaderboard is playing up and I'm as sure as I can be that it's not me this time. PM has been sent to @JoostBaksteen to come and rescue us.

    Hold off posting splits for now until we get this sorted out

    Mike...you :censored:! How can I continue to boycott TTs ( due to their usually esoteric nature and due to my dislike of road cars) when you do things like this. Keep an eye on Javier, the Rat, and M2( argon) they pedal very well here as they race here every weekend for hours at a time with the Ring Rats on Sundays ( ad over :lol:). GREAT COMBO.The Cup car is actually banned by the Rats due to its incredible downforce...while abysmally slow in a straight it KILLS all other cars in the class in the corners causing driver frustration due to our strict adherence to WRS passing criteria and the fact that we race each other ever week and its hard to face a friend that you have abused the week before. :tup:

    I was wondering about the combo title until I saw the track . And being a clockwise track it's logical there are more right-hand turns.

    D@^n you Magane!! As soon I start to give this car a little trust... Bam I'm in a wall or facing the wrong way! The car is fun, but I don't trust her one bit. She will stab you in the back and take away all that you worked for. :banghead:

    Thanks Mike! Looks like I picked a good one to get back at it too. Started getting some good laps in before I had to go cook. Hopefully I can pick up where I left off tomorrow

    OK folks, @JoostBaksteen has once again come to the rescue and fixed the board for us. We'd be lost without him for sure.

    Anyway we thought we'd be limited to 9 sectors and I changed the thread accordingly but nope, we can have all 11 sectors recorded so can those who have already posted, re-post with an extra 2 sectors please. I have changed the OP back to read 11 sectors.

    Huge thanks again to @JoostBaksteen

    Further update. Bloody tough this one trying to get a clean lap done. Nearly 400 miles and only completed a handful of laps.

    Has anyone done anything regards brake settings?????

    Unforgiving track, unforgiving car. Although it does have tons and tons of grip! A nice and very welcome change for me from last week.

    Anyway, 260km, countless swear words cursing the track, car and just about anything else, and behold: a clean lap!

    43.170
    32.980
    27.776
    48.784
    37.223
    27.306
    47.744
    33.049
    28.089
    40.490
    24.556

    Quite happy with this lap, there is more to get though. Not sure I'm gonna have the time this week to do more. Too bad such a time consuming combo is this week, of all weeks!

    If I recall correctly I'm on +2, I take the hairpin before T1 in 3rd and it helps the car rotate. Didn't feel much difference elsewhere, this car is perfectly happy getting the tail out on its own.


    Edit: Oops, wrong week :dunce:
