    • Our leaderboard shows how you stack up during the week, before the deadline.
    • Submit your lap via PM to our Fetchbot, before the event deadline.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • 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.
    • No hybrids.
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind. We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

    [​IMG]

    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):

    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. Note other track surface rules below.
    • The green stuff behind the rumbles is not track.
    • The concrete behind the white line in the final turn entry IS track. This is a departure from many prior WRS events. However, it's also a source of frustration I am attempting to remove.
    • There are several track cones that are not driving marker cones. Contact with those cones will result in a DQ.
    • The white cross hatched lines in the pit entry area ARE track.

    Steward's Comments:
    It's been about a year since we ran on the short course at Suz. Both times we've done it, it's been in a road car on sports tires. So now we will try a low powered race car with a ton of grip. I think you can take the esses without ever lifting entirely off the gas, but you will need it to steer!

    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 73 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 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 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 22nd 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.

    Great combo. Really easy to over drive it. And it doesn’t take long for the laps to stack up.

    Great looking combo :tup: and with the leniency on track limits it should put a big smile on all our faces:)
    I’ll definitely be giving this one a go, I really only have time for the short track combos now a days :indiff:

    I’m struggling with the first and the last corner. Too much right foot.

    Where exactly is this concrete behind the white line located? There are a couple of patches of what look like dirt, is that it?

    Apex of the right turn that takes you out of the esses and back toward the main straight. It's effectively a double Apex final turn, you want to hit that concrete, track out, and then come back in where those hashed white lines are. At times, it was a bit of a tight rope walk. In the R32 we ran here, I kept having to throw out laps and eventually picked a new point to aim for on entry. Would feel like I was well within boundary only to find my left front was behind the line on concrete.

    It's not a big deal in really low powered stuff, lots more margin for error going in, the car is unlikely to run wide into the cones or grass on the left.

    But the margins here are tighter.

    I'm in the same boat @JamCar0ne :lol:
    I thought @EDK was talking about exit on to front straight. The last I looked it was grass with a patch of dirt.
    :confused: :dunce:
    Now I understand...it's the corner at crest of hill :dopey:

    That is a goofy part of the track. I’m having a hard time being consistent and carrying speed. I either over drive the first apex, or I don’t get back to the gas fast enough for the second. Going to be a tough week of minor victories.

    Fractionally beat my save but never used the concrete on the last turn this time... which means I lost speed there :tdown::irked:

    Still .2 overall for me before I think about submitting :censored:
    GL guys! :cheers:
