    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.

    • 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.

    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The short, track boundary cones on the left hand side before the main straight may NOT be contacted.

    Steward's Comments:
    Nice new track, and a great classic car that suits this short course really well. 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.

    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 70 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 70 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 70 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, April 1st 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,

    Looking forward to giving this one a go. I do better with hard sport tires or less events.

    Sorry, tires were initially wrong in the OP. Should be Comfort Soft. Trying to do too many things at once.

    Yeah, messed up the tires in the OP. Should have read Comfort Soft. Updated.

    10 laps so far... BB +1 feels best so far. Not sure what I’m doing wrong for the first corner.

    Guys we need to start being very careful about using gift cars
    I was using one and spent an hour wondering why I was so slow through the first sector, best I could manage was low 29s. It sent alarm bells ringing being that far off the pace in one turn.

    I went to buy another car and you've probably guessed it. If you were like me and bought one of these on day one you will need to buy another. Here is what I found.

    Car stats with new car being on right hand side.

    Max speed 4.1/4.1
    Acceleration 3.1/3.1
    Braking 1.7/1.9
    Cornering 1.5/1.7
    Stability 5.0/5.0

    Sorry I can't post pictures of this but we need to keep a close eye for future TTs. Looking back at other TTs where @turnupdaheat was on to something but none of us noticed.

    He said in one of the Tokyo TTs that he felt quicker with a new car as opposed to a free car, this is why. This has been going on since the start, we need to keep an eye on PDs updates.

    Cheers.

    I just wasn't accepting being .5 off the pace, but was shocked to find this :lol:

    This could.explain last week's time trial for me, I was struggling to get good sector times. Could explain @Philtaylor17 sector times being so much faster even though he is obviously a fast guy anyway.

    @Mr P

    How many years has this.been going on?

    Forget this guys I don't k ow what's going on. When entering a time trial the stats seem to change. Braking and handling were .2 better entering the tt, after a few laps and backing out it defaulted back to the old stats, something strange here

    Just guessing here, but, it could be the changing of tire compounds changes the stats, especially braking and cornering.

    This is my thinking now as well.

    Edit that's exactly what it is, what a stupid mistake for me to make. I have never noticed that before

    I always wondered how guys were so fast in the driving school events in these Mazdas, they have a strange gear change and makes me wonder if it's the same for everyone else.

    What start line speed are people getting?

    @Special_K @Mr P

    So are we saying gift cars are slower after all? Or was it just the compound change?

    I almost always sell a car I've bought if i get the same one as a gift, so 99 percent of my cars are gifts

    What a find if this is how it is
