    Race Specifics:
    • The event MUST be run using your registered account
    • The use of the clutch that is found on the G25, G27, and other high end racing wheels is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • All surfaces are track.
    • Be mindful of invisible walls near the barriers.



    Steward's Comments:
    Let's throw another Vision GT around a classic GT track. All parts and tunes are fair-game, except for power-adds.



    Viewing your T1 & T2 Time Splits:
    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
    • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
    • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
    • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
    • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
    • To post your T1 & T2 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • 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
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on IM services or via other private conversation methods):

    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime

    The following information can be discussed in this thread :

    • The first 2 splits: T1 & T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    View attachment 268869

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 47 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):

    • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
    • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • 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 that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:

    [​IMG]

    • The deadline is Monday, December 15th 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:

    • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Hmm, racing brakes optional? Though I can probably find a good setting either way.

    This track at speed requires concentration everywhere every second.

    I should try a couple of different downforce settings, just to protect against bad exits from the bus stop and the chicanes.

    I only added the racing brakes to my first stint. I'd do some adjustments, but honestly, I've never had much success with figuring that stuff out on my own. I'll try @RS__96__oO's suggestion tonight.

    I'm curious, what is the ballpark speed you're getting at the finish line? I was 171 mph with stock everything, except racing brakes.

    I pass the line at 173 mph. Some times :cheers: the last turn before the straight is a killer if you make the least mistake. I think 175-176 mph i possible if that corner i taken perfect. :)

    281 km/h (174 mph) but that's with rather low downforce.

    Isn't racing brakes stock? and as for speed I don't know, I haven't taken note of it yet. But just get a really good exit from the last corner and you should be fine.

    That's one way to look at it. :lol:

    The title was inspired by the many comments here on GTP comparing the looks of the car to a fish. And then PD's latest blog post confirmed that the designer had fish in mind when designing it!

    It's not that bad, guys. As long as you don't go gung-ho everywhere, you'll be fine. Oh, that electric bar in the fuel gauge, it's not KERS. Anyway....

    Didn't really like this car when I drove it in the seasonal. It is, however, slowly growing on me. Still not a favorite. Anyways here's my first go times.

    Splits accepted. I have a lot of work to do in sectors 2 and 3 if I am not going to waste a solid T1 time this week.

    Very funny combo, Lucas @Gravitron ! :bowdown:
    This week I'll submit my first lap today - don't want to miss the deadline again like yesterday. Wanted to take a nap and do a last minute session before submitting, but I didn't hear the alarm and woke up 3 hours after the deadline :ouch:
