    Steward's Comments

    Such a great online event could not go without being honored in the WRS. The inspiration for this week's theme comes from a 1980's ad campaign for one of my favorite candies. On Halloween weekend. ;)



    Viewing your T1 & T2 Lap Time Splits:

    You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'.
    To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Page' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay' option.

    • Runoff areas are not 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

    IF I have time to play this week, I'll surely do some laps :D, but that's a big IF
    I'll have to buy a 2nd 512BB though, cause the one I have is black :ouch:

    Great work as ever Kevin :tup:

    This will need quite some tuning and practice as the BB (successor to the better looking 365 GT4 BB) can be quite a character on the throttle :cool:

    Doesn't take much ;)

    Looks a bit different, I remember this car at Eiger, and it was a real PITA. Hopefully I'll get some time with her over the week.

    Absolutely brilliant, this is going to be another memorable classic!! Giallo Fly baby!! Possibly the best looking and feeling car in GT5P at one of the greatest race tracks in the world :bowdown:

    Here's what I have so far:
    T1: 1'00.159 1'00.132
    T2: 1'50.269 1'50.162

    EDIT: Improved splits, should have been far better at the line.

    All the best

    Same here, busy week ahead for me, but I'm gonna try to find some extra time to participate in this.

    I also have a black one, so I guess I'll have to shell out for a new one :)

    Did a small run and produced these splits:

    T1. 1'00.434
    T2. 1'50.688

    Made a slight mistake out the chicane that cost me .1 to .2 at the line :ouch:

    Nice one Rudi :tup:

    Here are my first splits:

    T1: 59.832
    T2: 1'49.890

    Should have had a 59.7xx T1 but screwed Degner 2 up. T2 wasn't good either - got a bit out of shape exiting the hair pin and got on the gas a bit too late exiting spoon :(

    BTW, mind exchanging tunes? :sly:

    I have to say it is really hard to do this combo on the controller. Only aliens like TA could do it. So you dont have to feel bad :D

    You guys don't need to worry. This is an exceptionally difficult combo, especially if you've never driven it before.

    Just don't forget - Mid-Engine cars will punish you for lifting mid-turn.

    My First Splits -

    1:00.697
    1:51.541

    A little sideways coming out of spoon, probably lost a couple tenths there. Will be back at this one, for sure. ;)

    :cheers:
