Steward's Comments:
Wow, Mid-Field is back. So many great memories for me here. We used it for the Clio Enduro at one of the SFGTP LAN races, I was paired with @billyjoebobx for that one. And a couple of memorable division wins for me here, in these old WRS events. GT4 Week 162 GT4 Week 126

This is a nice, straightforward combo in the Fantastic Mazda RX500 Concept. If you have not driven this car, you are doing yourself an injustice that will soon be corrected. Have fun. 👍

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 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 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


All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 59 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, March 9th 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

Good luck, :gtpflag:

Looks good - if I have driven this track and I'm not sure, it's been more than ten years, so probably a good time to revisit :)

I didn't have this car. I figured it's not too interesting unless you turn it into a bland tuned hipo. But that was clearly false.

First touch on this reborn GT Legend, first touch on this "Powered By ROTARY" machine and i can say will be fun to compete in race with this combo. Uff, i feel so lost on this wide wide track, as far as i remember it wasnt that wide. :scared:


few personal goals awaiting on me for this week ;)


Boring as B-Spec Bob

Time for another massive positive handicap, so you won't see how I matched the paint job....

The previous combo was way too difficult for me in my early days of the new game (to me anyway), but this one looks much more driveable without waggling off the track all the time :) Also very happy to have the track back into GT.

The only thing I remember about this track was a very difficult licence test that ended at the entrance of the 2nd tunnel. I think you had to pass some cars. Anyway, I have to learn a new track.


Loving the combo, so I'll spend more time on it this week.

I'm always surprised how much grip comfort softs have. I guess it's car dependant though. Another great combo. I need to improve in every turn

Yeah, I noticed it was close, but might have more left than you think. It will wind past red line.

We'll create a gearbox for everyone to use online if we have to, along the lines of what was done for the Ponycar event at Rome.

A very quick run, a I vaguely remember the track. All over the place, and should be fun to knock away at, but dreadfully slow.

In my defence, I have a lot on my mind, and have had 3 hours sleep since Saturday morning. I have also decided that I should change the oil, as per the regulations. (like we do every week...)


Definitely a 24 sector 1, and more than likely a very early 49 or better leader board time. My reactions are way off today.

Maybe take a power nap instead of running laps.. might have better times than trying to force your laps. You need your rest.

Unless you're @EDK. I don't think kevin ever sleeps.
