    Steward's Comments:

    This week we celebrate the Red Bull Ring coming back to the GT franchise after an short absence. The circuit was first added in GT6 and has quite some history with the WRS. Not only the triple mix was first held at this circuit although in it's short version also the #GT300 championship started off at this track as a tribute to that first triple mix. Both the triple mix and #GT300 Championship featured the GT300 cars available in GT6. Taking this heritage into account we could only do this welcome justice by going at it in another super GT machine. although this is not a GT300 but a GT500 machine, it's close enough for us.

    To continue to move the heritage forward keep an eye on the online thread since a new chapter may be just around the corner.

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 43 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 43 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 43 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, September 24th 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.

    Guess it's about time I learnt this track. Really struggling with the 2nd corner and finding the best line through the 3rd.

    This car demands some respect when accelerating out of the the corners, its taking a bit to get used to after last weeks TT.

    20.851
    37.467

    Looks like I'm loosing a bunch of time in the 2nd sector.

    Managed to free up a hour for a quick go. Was switching back and forth from - 1 to +1 settled on 0 et voila :)

    Tips for this week.

    1) Run it to the red line but don't over rev or hit the rev limiter
    2) Use the rumbles....A LOT!
    3) Essential to hit apex's to get good speed out of the tricky first 3 corners on this track
    4) +BB will generally work better than -BB as this car has a tendency to under-steer.
    5) Trail braking is your friend in the latter part of the track
    6) The yellow sausage on the apex of turn one is NOT your friend. The yellow sausage on the final turn is on speaking terms but don't take liberties

    The rest is up to you :)

    I gave this half an hour today. Decided on a night off after last weeks time spent. Think the missus is pleased at least.
    Turn 2 (I think) is horrible! It’s very different to last week but looking forward to the challenge. Will jump back on it again tomorrow.

    Thanks for the tips Mike, do you mind sharing your gear selection for the Pirelli through Wurth section? I can't seem to get the power down very often without loosing the rear of the car.

    I'm finding this combo to be very Jekyll & Hyde on any given lap. :crazy:
