    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • White lines denote track edge unless backed by rumble strips.

    Steward's Comments:

    Another iconic real world track that to date has defeated me but I still keep coming back as it's such a wonderful track that encourages commitment. This time we're throwing the extreme elevation changes, off camber corners and long straights to a well balanced FF car that responds well to a considered approach to conquering this mountain.

    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 laptime
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline, expect the full lap time to be public, regardless of whether you've only shared with Friends or Public.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 3 sectors: T1, T2 and T3 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 7 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, we 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 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. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, January 15th 2018 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 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 (Check Needed)
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Oh wow. The track I am the most useless at this week.

    Hopefully this will give me an opportunity to finally get to grips with it and find some respectable time!

    The big problem is that the arcade selection is so limited and it’s virtually impossible to restrict tuning on garage cars. I’m glad there’s plenty of quick competent guys here who don’t mind sharing (hint hint :lol:)

    Oh a nice one combo, Track I always hated, but started to love, and 1st pick from the Gr.4 is what made me happy. I like how those Gr.4 cars handle, at least some of them (Nissan for me no need TC). Never touched this car so will be a new experience at all :D

    Will have a look at it soon

    Sweet combo! I look forward to giving it a go. Not used the car, not tuned in GTS and, never been great on this track. Excellent recipe. :tup:

    Looking forward to this...:tup: Back in 2016 I entered a GTP FITT event through GT6 / PS3 and fell in love with the track. I need to find my notes from that event...:cheers:

    Nice designs!
    Crampon = stijgijzer, you know the spiky things you put under your boots when climbing an icy mountain. Mike must be living in a wintery area :)

    There I was thinking after the challenges of a fast circuit with a powerful Mustang that cost 450,000 could we have a slower pace cheaper one this week as funds are depleted and instead we have one of the most challenging tracks in the game nearly 4 miles long with 23 corners and a 350,000 car to boot.

    This one will be fun (I think - first challenge will be achieving clean laps !) - so first steps off to Circuit Experience to remind myself of the track as not driven either car or track in GTS plus like @BassAddict dig out my GT6 track notes from past seasonals and lastly check whether Z28 has done a track guide as his Village one certainly helped.........

    All this of course to be done after some final 'banzai' laps on Village tomorrrow ................

    Edit: Crampons might not be needed for climbing but I suspect walking shoes would be if this was real life given the amount of walking my driver will be doing back to the pits after hitting walls etc in the initial sessions.....

    My tip for some reasonably quick funds is here, there may be faster methods but this one is pretty easy and does not require any nasty cheats :tup:

    First splits to laugh about

    50.684
    36.898

    Correction on Sjaak and Mike. You don't need crampons, you need balls the size of icebergs.

    I did say in the stewards comments that you need commitment (that's polite speak for big cahoonas) :lol:

    First run at this, nice combo for sure.

    21.206
    47.368
    34.597

    Need to play around with the tune more and not over drive the 3rd sector.

    Seems to respond to downforce adjustments when trying to balance the car.

    I did quite a few sport races in gr4 at Bathurst not too long ago. First time I've done 10 laps in a row without getting dive bombed at least once. :lol::lol::lol:

    First dozen or so laps, max front min rear downforce and brakes all the way to the rear. Having fun with this one so far.

    It's a tough nut to crack.

    Amateur tip of the week:

    From the very top of the mountain to the first tight left hand turn:

    You can run decent times through here without touching the throttle. Just coast and use the brakes to stay on a tidy line. Stay close to the curbs on right leading to tight left.

    Lots of time to be gained by getting the car around the tight left, hammer the throttle and take it to hairpin.

    I'd recommend taking the road version of the porsche 911 GT3 to the Premium Sports Lounge in professional event at the Blue moon speedway 15 laps. Set power to minimum, weight to max and racing super soft tires.

    That gives you 130% handicap bonus and with clean race bonus it will net you 345000 cr for 12 min of race time, just close enough for a GT4 car. A lap should take you around 48 seconds or less. The front runners AI will be much faster on the straights, but are pretty slow on all three corners.

    I only win by a few seconds, so to make it risk free, perhaps adjust the power and weight. I haven't tried other settings to see where the 130% bonus splits.
