    Steward's Comments:

    Another new track and this time in the picturesque setting of Alsace village which is close to the borders of Germany. This fictitious circuit has become a favourite of mine with it's multiple elevation changes and deceptively tricky corners that need some careful attention to driving lines to get the most out of the track.

    From the whole of the WRS team we wish you a very happy new year along with our hopes that it brings you all you wish for.

    Viewing your T1 & T2 Sector Times:
    • 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 Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector 1 and sector 2 splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the second split location.
    • 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.

    Initial splits after first 10 km (2 laps :D ) Just to become purple in all for a couple of minutes :p

    Well, driving this Ford is quite easy, but brakes definitely need to be changed! :crazy: going to work on livery now, and then on the setup.

    It seems that Fetchy is not picking up any of these splits.

    It's too bad I can't gift cars. That's all I seemed to get as prize and daily rewards when I first got this game.

    The roulette game wheel isn't smart enough to look at your garage and make sure it doesn't give you something you already have. I've got several models of cars which I have 3 to 5 sitting their. You can't even sell them, lol. Going back aways but you used to be able to sell car from your garage to your mates.
    Different subject:
    Is it me or is that a map for the it RING in GT6 displayed on the leader board at the moment, lol
    :dunce:

    Happy New year everyone!!! :gtpflag:

    You probably have this sorted anyway but running the new career mode will get you there quickly. I was running a car that was 2 under spec e.g. N100 in a N300 and winning easily and getting something like 50% bonus plus if you can get a clean race you get even more.

    Edit: If anyone wants a recommendation for some easy credits...

    4WD Challenge Race 1 (BB raceway)
    Audi TT with the following spec
    Power = 80%
    Weight Red 95% - this with the power gets the car to N.200
    Custom Transmission with speed set to lowest
    Everything else is stock

    6 minutes of relative boredom nets you 84,000 (includes 50% clean bonus and 40% Handicap bonus)

    Cheers mate! I’ve already sorted it doing some of the circuit experience but that handy to know for the future:tup:

    It’s Sod’s law that the rally version is the only Mustang I didn’t have

    Using @Mr P 's awesome tune with a slight tweak as I was still struggling with the under-steer so ran Torque Dist at 40-60 which was better in some bits and worse in others but overall gave me a bit of a margin at the line. Think this is going to be the story for this week, finding a compromise that works overall.

    Considering I’m still learning this track I’m pleased with these times after my first ten laps

    41.950
    40.723

    Once I get it memorised & find the braking points I’m certain I’ll be far more competitive. I already gained loads of time switching from the standard setup to @MR P’s
