    Race Specifics:
    • The event MUST be run using your registered account
    • The use of the clutch that is found on the G25, G27, and other high end racing wheels is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • Tarmac between white lines (including the white line) and Blue and White rumbles are track
    Steward's Comments:
    Time to slow things down a bit , if you haven't driven this car on stock tyres you're missing out a lot. And it's not that hard on comfort hards either The cornering is great! And like @Thematic called it 1 gear less / week (skipping 1 week) , now 3 gears should be enought.

    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 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual split times, 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.
    [​IMG]

    Thread rules:
    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN 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 3 splits: T1 , T2 and T3 times
    • Any settings discussion
    [​IMG]

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 61 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:
    [​IMG]
    • The deadline is Monday, March 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

    Good luck, :gtplanet:

    :idea: I wonder if a truck combo on asphalt "gets/would get" more participants than a proper dirt combo w/ a 4wd rally car?:crazy: :lol:

    Indeed. Remember the fun to be had in this car overtaking everything in the previous games? Easy money everywhere.
    But dirt and snow have never been a strong point by PD. They better stick to the black stuff as they do that perfect.

    Comfort Hards! :dunce: I was never good on comfort tires, but as I love this track I'll give it at least one go. Sounds like an interesting combo, though :D

    Hmmm, this one looks interesting!!
    Judging by the smoke coming from the tyres in almost every pic, I would suggest the lads had fun during testing!

    Sure about these splits Miro? If so well done, you are two seconds faster than everyone else :scared:
    Might be using the CS the truck comes with?

    Does crashing down those small sign boards to the right of the track as soon as the lap starts count as dirty?

    Splits for now... Can see a 0.5 at the line. Hopefully I get enough time this week
