    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • All Tarmac is Track. There are no other surfaces.
    • Permanent track marker cones (Red) may not be touched.

    Steward's Comments:
    We actually found a car that works at the Horse Thief Mile. These are quick laps with only 2 sectors and one reported split. This should be a nice change of pace from the recent race car combos.

    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 1 sectors: T1 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 44 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, October 1st 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.

    Gave this a quick lap (or ten) and felt like getting out of the car and pushing it up the hill on a couple of occasions. :lol:

    Great combo @EDK

    I have to say im pretty suprised by how good it is. The car suits this track very well. I have to say i've always had a dislike for this track. But as soon as you let go of the idea as an car-racetrack combo but approach it as a kart-karttrack combo everything starts to make sense. Really like how this week is all about gaining and maintaining momentum. And once again trail breaking is important specially that second hairpin. To put it in other words easy to learn difficult to master.

    Can see myself spending some time here this week because it just remind of the good old karting days which don't come very often anymore unfortunatly.

    to get fetcy going

    That's more like it Kevin, had me going there for a bit

    38.546

    Couldn't tell where the tarmac (track) line was on the first hairpin apex, wheels looked a little air-born above the track limit. Also the edge seems to come in and out, so I would watch how close you get to the apex edge. I just binned that lap, shame too was a good Ti and my best lap so far.

    You are Kevin, as you said above smooth, momentum and timing when you hit the gas. One important thing I find with low power FF is getting your front wheels straight as soon as possible to get the pull, any lock gives you resistance to forward momentum.

    Now I await for you to knock me off my perch :nervous:

    Initial shakedown. Still more questions than answers on how to get around a few of the turns.

    Many small yet great things and their common point of origin... Of the three things, my two other favourite small exports are the ‘slice and the nurnberger bratwurst. Here I’ve imagined what PD have put together for, my third favourite small thing, the Gran Turismo Sport description of the Mini, one of the greatest cars invented..

    ‘The part Greek car designer Alec ‘the German’ Issigonis, who lived and died in Brum-ouf-Danube was inspired to design the mini.

    The company BMC, an abbreviation of Bavarian Motor Works, produced the Mini in response to a global shortage of ideas and originality....’


    I am so pleased to see the level of detail betrayed by Polyphony Digital but welcome the Mini, a fine German car!!

    Hello everyone. Nice combo Kev, I’ll try and get some wheel time in ;)
