Steward's Comments:

We finally return to the Mountain! This course was absent in GTSport and has been redone to make it now 5.5 KM’s long. The tree that hung over turn 6 is now gone, but is the monkey still there? It may be there somewhere? Is Nessie still there watching over the fisherman on the lake??

I hope you enjoy the new layout and the history it brings dating all the way back to the original Gran Turismo release!!!!

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.

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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.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

I feel like I'm just trading tenths around in T1; if I take a turn too fast I pay for it on the following turn and if I take it just a touch slower it pays off on the following turn. I found braking just as you approach the rumble strip on the right after the tunnel gives you a great line with early exit throttle to go wide through that sweeping left. I kept her in 2nd for the last two turns 🤷‍♂️ TCS 1.

Nice combo! I'll try to get into the NoAbs habit again with this one. Short shifting seems to be better.
I also played around with sharing a video from this half-decent lap up to the hidden sector. When i have not yet registered for WRS and was luring these forums back in the day i found these videos very helpful. Maybe this one can help someone too... :cheers:

I have found this game to be different from previous on the short shift piece. I think the torque is modeled better, and I can keep the car up in the RPM without wheel spin. But, YMMV.

Same here, or at least it used to be. Considering almost all my experience doing a full lap of the new layout so far has been :banghead: for an hour or two to get gold on this before the patch… well, I’m looking forward to trying this, but a little worried.
You'll be fine, I'll wave as you pass me bye buddy :lol:

Does anyone own this car to show how the power band looks? Sounds like it needs a bit of short shifting but how much 🤔
We ran it some in online on Saturday, and it ran out of steam at around 90% on the HUD, so I spelled to shifting at 75%.

Can have a look at the band when on console tonight.

Starting to loose control, that's the indication of going fast enough. :dopey: Another video for your enjoyment:


Finding the right place to shift is tricky, for example shifting into 4th just before turn one loosens up the car nicely, but watch out not to loosen up too much...

I guess shifting just before 8000 RPM is the sweet spot for shifting, maybe a little earlier in the long straight uphill section.

Is the tarmac in the yellow-striped areas below the dashed white lines coming onto/off of the back straight legal (especially before as there's some dirt on the tarmac)?

If I may ask, how much faster were you with TC vs not?
Similar pace with both ON and OFF.

I turned TCS on 1 because the slight elevation changes were sometimes causing the rear wheels to spin, causing me to crash.

On TCS 1, I'm still treating the car as if it had TCS 0. If TCS kicks in too hard, too much power gets cut out causing time loss. So ideally you want only minor intervention from TCS.
