    Steward's Comments:

    This weeks combo is courtesy of our very own @Gravitron and what is there to say except FUJIIIIIIIIII! We love the fact that Lucas loves this track and hope that you also enjoy PD's newest real life entry to the GTSport track stable along with a car that brings out the best of this circuit, fast and nimble but challenging enough to keep you working on those sector times.

    Enjoy and thanks Lucas!

    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 45 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 45 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 45 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 8th 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.

    Tips for this week:

    1) Corner bollards are fair game, go get em
    2) Red line it
    3) Stay away from rumbles in the faster turns unless you like driving backwards
    4) BB seemed OK at neutral but if you do adjust it try small amounts.

    It’s been a while since though; I’m looking forward to giving it a spin, or two.

    Woot! Let's do this!

    For some reason I really enjoy this track, especially with the Gr3 cars. Well, except for those corners that I suck at ... which is most of them. :lol:

    Had a little run here yesterday, I know it's been some years since I did, not playing gt6. I don't feel the track flows as well as it did, you was able to run the curbs although the water gullies did unsettle the car it was still manageable.

    Nice combo it's like learning it all over again

    I hope I can. Haven’t played for about 10 months I’m suffering from a hernia but downloaded a massive update last night already. Will give it a try

    :lol:

    Will try mate but like I said above. And will be rusty after such long time

    Impressive spits :tup:. Hopefully this will help with my issues getting the car to turn in. Are you accelerating out in 1st on those corners or short shifting to 2nd after the turn? This causes me to either (spin out) or loose time (1st gear partial throttle for too long).
