    Steward's Comments:

    We are back at the green hell, and this time in one of the best sports cars in the game, the 996 Porsche 911. One of the first liquid cooled 911 of all time, this car represents a break from tradition as well as the first step in the direction Porsche is still at today. Sports Softs will give you enough grip, but beware: It can still kill you if you forget that swinging back end :scared: Combo suggestion and pics courtesy of @GTP_Dutchy

    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 11 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9, T10, T11 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 63 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 63 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 63 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, February 11th 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.

    Good luck,

    Great job @roamer2629 & @GTP_Dutchy! :cheers:

    I've edited the OP slightly to fix an indent issue, and am just testing whether Fetchy picks up splits correctly - ignore these. :O

    Outstanding! My all-time favorite track in GT (despite it not being very good for "races"). I've probably logged at least 4x more miles on this track than any other. (Its a shame that does not equate to being fast around it :ouch:). If I remember correctly Javier @roamer2629 is also someone who loves Green Hell.

    Time to get out my excel worksheet, it's going to be a great week!!! Reminds me that I miss the "Sierra"? track from GT6.

    Got greedy and went for another quick run, ghost was a spec in my rearview and dissapeared as I entered the final complex, I was literally celebrating, practically waving to the crowd as I took the final right hander and hit the barrier on the inside;

    First time I've heard of that happening. :crazy: Make sure you compare the HP to the posted value, and maybe buy another one also to compare. People have noticed HP dropoff around 14000mi but I cant confirm myself (10700mi on my XBow BMB grinder ;))

    Thanks for the suggestions Gravitron :tup: Everything seems to match up with the specs.. I made a quick vid to show the mileage and settings but this is sure a strange thing to see as I have had literally about 5 full laps in the car so far before I noticed it haha :D Here's the vid..

    @Dutchy 5laps Wow.

    In my defence I've probably only done 3 full laps in GT Sport to date, it really screws with my eye. :eek::eek:

    So here we go 1 flying lap just making sure it's clean, as restarting :O, the more times I restart the less chance I have of making the end, with all the camera bouncing and flickering shades.

    My first handful of laps are kind of depressing. The one and only clean lap I have is 5 seconds slower then everyone else in the first section. I’ll see if I can get some more time later this week to improve, but I may sit this one out just to save me the embarrassment.
