    Steward's Comments:

    I have always loved the look of this car and as a first attempt at producing a 4 wheel vehicle KTM did a great job but then collaboration with Audi and Dallara probably helped and the resulting innovative design was well received by track enthusiasts and outright racers alike.

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 59 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 59 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 59 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, January 14th 2019 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.

    Not a huge fan of this car for two reasons.
    1. It’s extremely ugly
    2. I’ve never had the patience to learn how to drive it.
    Its very light in the rear end. Definitely need a light foot for this one. I will give it this. It’s crazy fast.

    Not run this but that's a nice first split mate for you to be that far ahead of Ron. Maybe it's more of a controller friendly combo.

    Might have a go at this one after my match tonight. Normally don't get home till late though so we will see. I can't see me having time to run last week's which is a shame as there was at least .2 left on track.

    Not sure about the controller friendly thing. It's very a very tricky one, particularly in the infield section. Ron says he has seen 20.9s already so I'm sure he won't take long to improve there.

    Not my best but it’s a good start. I like this combo, it’s an interesting drive. Already close at the top, should be pretty competitive.

    I can’t figure this out I’m massively behind some of the times posted so far. Massive been nearly 3 seconds over 2 sectors :( I Can’t see at the moment where the time is going. It’s controllable but has a tendency to just flick the back out now and again.

    Anyone care to share some wisdom on this one? I can’t believe how far off the pace I am

    Try and stay in 4th for turn 1 and thread the needle to cross both the inside and farside rumbles in one fluent motion the speed is much better overall :tup:

    If it's not that then check your tyres mate ;):tup:

    Cheers Ron,
    Firstly I checked my tyres “twice” :D I’ve been staying at fourth and I’m edging closer, the second sector is the one I’m struggling most as only once have gone sub 32 with 33+ been most the time. I’d say the hairpin is fine but it’s the next complex before the final straight I reckon I’m struggling as the car feels very light on the steering and feels like there’s no grip to keep it moving quickly.

    Yeah its a tricky section there.. try to do the hairpin in 3rd with early braking and roll the car tight on the inside rumble with early but careful throttle and hope it sticks on the exit, I'm gearing up to 5th for a split second approaching turn 5 and brake early on the far rumbles and drop 1 gear and try to coast in 4th through there also then back on the throttle quick when it's through... it's tricky but you'll find the rhythm after a few successful attempts :tup:

    GL mate :cheers:
