      • 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.

    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • All surfaces are track. No contact with walls visible or invisible. Wall collision detection set at strict is advised.

    Steward's Comments:

    Mitsubishi and Subaru kept trying to outdo each other during the '90s, and we all get to enjoy the fruits of that rivalry in GTS. We had Subbies, time we join the Lancers for a charge.

    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 3 sectors: T1, T2, and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    • 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 68 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 68 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.

    • The deadline is Monday, March 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.

    Never driven this track in the reverse direction, so that's a bit of a challenge.

    Feels even better to drive than it did yesterday... I love this combo btw! :D:tup:

    A little tip is for the long uphill roundy after T2 stay in 4th and just lift and stab the throttle until the line is good.. don't drop to 3rd if you can help it as the loss can be as much as 1 second at the line :tup:

    BB +2 at this point, need to figure out what gear to be in pretty much everywhere. Will change to 4th gear in the uphill part. Thanks Mr P!

    Sorry bitter taste from my stupidity in the last event so submitting what I have here and moving on... GL to all in the results :cheers:

    I reckon I drove on real grass during this event and not just moss growing in a groove on a rumblestrip :sly::tup:

    Would of liked to have a go at this as I am terrible at rallying, would of been great to get some tips on how it's done

    Unfortunately using a g29 is just to noisy for the neighbours, I only get a bit of time to run combos after work a couple of times a week.

    Good luck to those running this combo :cheers:

    Have you tried decreasing FF for the G29? That reduces rattling noise quite a bit.

    The settings may not be to your liking but I use 2 / 2 with my G29 and my wife is able to sleep in the next room. Not the same could be said for dirt or sarth on GT 6. I avoided both for fear of damage to my wheel. But yeah I know what you mean.

    I think you may have been doing something right, i think that was braking too late, compromises the entry into the twisty bits.

    Hope you have a change of heart and run some more later in the week Ron :cheers:

    Once I get used to them, the rally events are great fun and very addictive. I fondly remember putting in a lot of time with the WRX and Mustang in past events.

    Not too bad for having a broken wrist since yesterday:

    16.574
    Might be done because out of town from tomorrow evening but there’s a bit left here and there. Saw some .6 t3s but they where a bit late through the righthander where t3 is - the hit point is somewhere in brmetween.
    Good Luck!
