    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
    • The use of the clutch 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.
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
      • 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.

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The green surfaces around some of the rumble strips are NOT track.
    • Be wary of the last turn, it can feel like you are on a rumble strip, while you are on green stuff with metal in it.

    Steward's Comments:
    My favorite track on GTS, in my favorite GTS car model. We've now used all of the RCZ models, and they have been well worth it. This combo requires smooth inputs, but the car likes to turn, so it's a great time. Have Fun!

    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.

    (Best Lap Replay Save)


    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 64 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 64 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 18th 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.

    @EDK Nice combo. Never driven the Pug much. Only 4 miles on this one. Only have been gifted this one gr.3, no gr.4's and 8 gr.b pug's.
    Running a -1 BB for now. Was really surprised how well it turned in under heavy braking for Turn 1. Even with the front brake bias.

    Lots of time left, have had a couple of low .7 T1's

    12.851
    15.916

    Hoping to get 2 more sessions in before deadline.

    BB -1 for now, does fine with +1 or +2 as well.

    12.685
    15.836

    It really comes down to the drive out of the hairpin onto the straight and that last corner and not getting too greedy.

    So many weeks of pugs, you'd think a Pedigree or Purina advert would show up at least once.

    Looking forward to it though, not one of my favorite tracks but definitely a tie of my favorite pug between this and the GR.B (Because Hillclimb, bro).

    I'm having a hard time with this one; can't seem to get in "sync" with the cars grip level/ corner speed. :odd:
    Maybe its a hangover effect of spending so much time in the Porsche and its RR configuration. :confused:

    I'm using negative BB because it lets me point the car to apex under braking, then balance the throttle until I can open up my hands, and hammer down.

    The Porsche was more forgiving on the go pedal, and full Nurb is more of a momentum track, not a lot of low speed stuff.

    Besides that, this one rewards smooth inputs and patience.

    Thanks for the feedback! Hopefully it will speed up my un-learning and learning curve.... To me the grip is almost deceiving, you have gobs of turn in ability but once your in the corner you realize you are going too fast and have exceeded the limit.
