    Steward's Comments:

    The 787B was for many years the only Japanese car to have won at Le Mans, taking the race in 1991, driven by Johnny Herbert, Volker Weidler and Bertrand Gachot. Never as fast as it's competitors, the last Wankel engine to compete in a worldwide series was a wonder of reliability. Not to mention one of the most memorable liveries ever to grace a race car. There's no tuning this week but we are on Racing Soft tires and the stock LSD has pretty mild settings compared to other Gr.1 cars. Have fun flying through Mulsanne!

    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 6 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6 times.
    • Any settings discussion.
    [​IMG]
    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 61 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 61 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 61 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 28th 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.

    I’ve been waiting for this bad boy to be unleashed since it was added and on Sarthe too with racing softs. I feel the need to be off work all week for this one. Good luck everyone

    I'm so happy they fixed Sarthe because IMO this track was broken in GT6 because of the death rattle it caused my wheel that would wake up my entire house. Its going to be fun racking up the miles in this car.

    Initial splits
    29.921
    32.101
    27.142
    22.769
    27.632
    29.619

    FYI...Make sure you review the track limits because all my initial laps were dirty. The only reason I caught it was I had searched the archives for a past replay and noticed 5 people were red flagged week 29.

    Thought it might be a typo shoenboggie... but you never know eh ;)

    Done a quick T1 vid from my best lap.. there's faster T1's up for grabs as I had a poor start line speed.. but should be good for reference :tup:

    I'm glad you posted this info and prompted me to go check... So much tar and its out of bounds :p

    [​IMG]

    My best lap exits the first chicane and takes this exact line as the reference pic above :( So my save is dirty after all :p

    Thanks for the valuable info Ruddracer... will run it again for a cleaner lap tonight :tup:

    Loving the howl. If you go into the pre-race screen and just listen as it goes through the grandstand... Sounds almost operatic!

    [​IMG]As stated above we all need to be careful of track limits. Personally I would go gloves off and let us just go for it. Watching actual live races on this track you see that the cars use every bit bit of tarmac possible.

    Just so I’m on the right page see pic below. Is this illegal?
    https://www.flickr.com/gp/jamiechadwick/z1e5z3

    There could be slight confusion in the rules as it says

    White lines (Solid or Dashed) denote track boundary except when backed by rumble strips”

    This is the bit that confuses me and possibly others as reading the rules I could be forgiven to understand that this is legal as the line is backed by a rumble strip?

    You have two wheels on the kerb so it's legal to me judging from that shot.

    I understand your point, but we really don't want the TTs to become a question of who gets closer to track limits to have an edge over others. The rules are a bit tighter than usual, but they apply to everyone and that guarantees a level playing field.
    Rumble strips are still track limits, but I agree the wording could lead to confusion. The white line rules applies to areas of the track where, because of exits areas or otherwise, there's more tarmac than the one comprising track.
    You have two wheels on a rumble strip, legal lap.
    We'll try to relax rules when possible in the future.

    Well thankfully I must have been thinking of a previous best lap because I just watched my lap again and seems I was wrong about it going off there :tup:



    Lucky I never deleted that lap :scared:
