    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account
    • The use of the clutch 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
    • 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.
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • You may not contact the dark orange/red cones that are permanent to the track. Consistent with other weeks, driving assist cones are OK to contact. The issue being that the track cones denote boundaries that we want to keep intact.
    • Breaking boundary rules on the final corner of the lap prior to your best lap is strictly forbidden. We will make cursory checks of Start/Finish line speed on all replays, and will disqualify outliers.
    Steward's Comments:
    We're using our first garage car this week, and it's a fun one. A nice, approachable road car to get over the knife edge combo from last week. Happy Holidays to you, and we hope you enjoy. :tup:

    Viewing your T1, T2, & T3 Sector Times:
    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • Run your session for at least 10 more seconds after setting a lap you intend to save. If you exit early, the time stamp may not show up in your 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 1, sector 2 and sector 3 splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the third split location.
    • 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.

    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 laptime
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline, expect the full lap time to be public, regardless of whether you've only shared with Friends or Public.
    • If your replay is made public before the event deadline, we reserve the right to DQ your lap.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 3 sectors: T1, T2 and T3 times
    • Any settings discussion
    [​IMG]

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 5 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      Time: 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, we 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 that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, January 1st 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:

    • Rookies, Division Winners and Overperformers will be required to submit a replay via 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 (Check Needed)
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Cool, our first garage car event. I have a couple S-FRs sitting around so I'll put some times in later. Not sure if I'll do anything fancy for liveries.

    I'll be doing this sober only because I don't drink.

    Might as well get a time up on the board. Need to do a bit of tuning still, or at least my attempts at it.

    I'm going to need more than a few beers to take this track. It's what killed me in the GT6 qualifier.

    Zero tuning so far, with at least 6/10ths left on the track:

    20.738
    23.937
    27.946

    After 2 hours in Livery Editor to paint my ride for this week and after 4 laps of first session I must apologize for what I said about this car - it feels really nice on CS (don' forget to change your tyres guys :D ), I must also apologize for what I said about this combo - no need to run anywhere. :D

    I must apologize to one of us for... well, check the spoiler. :D

    Sorry Lucas, when I saw that green color in livery editor, i knew what I would do, bringing this one up to life again. :D even those lights are almost identical. ^^ :cheers:

    One another thing I said about the car I never apologize of - this car is ugly! :D

    So far I've only put BB to +2 and it feels great. Hopefully it feels even better after a little tweaking.

    No edits to livery or tune.
    Optimal amounts of scotch.

    Nice combo.

    I used to hate this track. When it first appeared in GT (don't remember which version) you had to do a license test hear in a go kart at dusk I think. Couldn't tell where the track went to save my life.

    Horrible S1, but trimmed enough off S2 and 3 to make a difference. All week to tidy up.

    24.148

    Still stock, except wheels and paint
