    Steward's Comments:

    The 22B, probably the most iconic of all WRC inspired cars in the game, makes a comeback in GTSport and it's a perfect match with a track we haven't used yet, Fishermans Ranch. This sliding beauty of a combo comes to you courtesy of Jerome @Jump_Ace

    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 4 sectors: T1, T2, T3 and T4 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 52 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 52 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 52 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, November 26th 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.

    Good luck,

    From the original 1998 review in "Car and Driver" magazine “Get yourself on a deserted, winding dirt road, and you can have the sort of fun reserved for guys with Finnish last names. For example, as you're approaching a dirt-covered right-hander, flick the steering wheel to the left. As the car compresses the right-side springs, flick the steering wheel to the right. If you've flicked properly, the real wheels will begin to slide. Add some throttle, and turn into the slide. If all is okay, the car will gracefully and swiftly slide through the turn in a maneuver known as the "Scandinavian flick," which is used to scrub off speed on low-friction surfaces. It's more fun than you had as a kid blowing up mud dams. Now, don't go trying this on public roads, or at least stay out of your neighborhood.” :cheers: :D

    This looks like real fun, but I would like to add;
    I attempted the first corner (or the second, whichever) of the first dirt test on GTS, failed miserably, my 16 year old daughter trolled me and knowing she only likes painting the cars and has no other interest in the game, challenged her to do better, so she proceeded to pass all of them (merely bronze, but better than me), I offered to do some homework for her but she declined :lol:

    As long as you didn't hit a fence, that's legal, right?

    New splits. I nerfed the uphill left after the long fast section (.5 there almost), I didn't string together the downhill chicane near the end after the double rights (after the jump) and the sweeping left after T1 wasn't ideal. I see almost a second out there. Great fun tho, lovin' this one! Oh, and give yourself a full minute after your best lap before you quit the session to ensure your replay saves the full lap. I already had one bite me, so to speak.

    That third split has an error I think... Unless you're just that fast in sector 3!

    Please repost your splits. When you quoted him you accidentally fooled Fetchy into thinking his splits were yours. I fixed your post so the quote appears correctly
