Steward's Comments:
This car's purpose in life is to make this ridiculous track drivable. :) We had a bit too much fun thinking of titles and racing for the photos you see here, credit to @GTP_Patrick1 for the title and @PASM for the awesome car choice and photos. 👍👍



Viewing your 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

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 57 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:



  • The deadline is Monday, February 23rd 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

I've been wanting a TT in this car since I did some running for the first GTP_ES support race with some friends... and dreading a TT at this track since I first did a lap of it. :lol:
We've all probably owned this car for a while now, so it's worth mentioning that the suspension needs to be reset to modern wonky settings. Fear not, it still drives like a champ. 👍

Bart had a few other Matterhorn combos proposed that were...scary. :scared::lol:

Here's his pics that didn't make it into the OP. :D

I'll have to find the time for this one since my everyday driver and my future track car is also a first gen, I'm down with this :)

No road markers were harmed in the making of these splits.

22.640
45.740

I lied, there were a few casualties...

Lol I've hit a ton of markers.

22.450
45.183

Need about .125 in t1 and a bit in t3. Almost at my goal :d I'm loving this combo.

Oooh this looks line fun! I always prefer non-tuning weeks. And love the Mazda Roadster TC, so definitely looking forward to this.

...but still need to see if I can make any progress with the Falcon... first things first. :)

Slow in, slow out. Dunno where the time in T2 is, car has no speed up the hill

Apparently, sorting cars in the dealership by name is not alphabetical (or alphanumeric) sort.
Turn eight - the twisty left-right - is already frightening. Had a lap that was dirty there, but sorted it with about a tenth.
It went something like this

10 or so resets; I'd normally say laps, but this first corner is preventing that :scared::

22.506
45.951

That's a lot of tenths for me to be clueless about, unless I'm misunderstanding the track limits...

Can we add those custom gauges to the cockpit? I kinda added one and forgotten to take it off before I started running laps today.

A third of my dials are tachometers. Unfortunately they don't deliver in virtual shoots. The two additions are gone.

An hour for my first run. I have nailed sector 1. Have had a couple of x.3xx, with loads of x.4s.
Best lap so far is with a slower t1, and a slow run up the hill.

22.566
46.066

My target is over a second away, and not sure if I will get to it. If I can nail the first 2 sectors, I reckon a 45.7 is on for me.

Getting the hang of sector 2. Poor sector 1, so much more time to find.

22.700
46.000

Binned a run up the hill with this one.

I know I am missing a lot of time, and I am not sure if I need to swing left before going over the crest or not, but I really do enjoy the feel of this car on this track.
