    Steward's Comments:
    I love the Gordini. I was first promoted to D1 back in 2016 in a combo using this car. It's an easy ride around this track, will be all about squeezing out every possible flat out moment. Just enough elevation change to get the tail wagging at times, I hope you enjoy.

    [​IMG]

    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 77 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 75 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 75 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, May 20th 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,

    Yes, just a copy/paste error. Hopefully one that Fetchy can deal with, I am going to make a test submission.

    Fetchy did not reply, so I reached out to the guy who built our board. I am also going to try a week 76 submission in the Hyundai right now, to make sure that's working as intended.

    Which combo is this? I don’t remember any combo, you can’t prove I was there, stop saying I was there! Oh wait, you didn’t... carry on. *tugs collar* :cool:;)

    Seriously though, I did think that the car seemed familiar. :scared::dopey:

    This combo is the most fun I've had on this game for quite some time. The car is so much fun to drive. Bravo!

    The week number is updated in the board. :tup:

    I sent a test submission, and that worked as well.

    Shift point advice from @EDK, it likely still holds true. There’s probably more tips for driving this car in the first few pages of that thread, but it’s been a while and I can’t remember where any of it would be or be bothered to go looking further right now. :)

    Edit: wow, making a meal of getting this right. :lol:

    Edit 2: holy :censored:, finally. I’m used to just making those links myself, got really confused about how much of the work the site would do for me. Will be more careful in future. :dunce:

    hi, Im interested in taking part.

    when you say no tuning allowed you go on to say power and weight must be stock.. does this mean gearing, lsd and suspension can be adjusted? I hope you dont mind me asking in this thread.

    This is a little fun car. At first i thought the track was way to long for this little old car. But it doesn’t really border me after all.

    Forgot to check my reply for splits after sharing my previous week replay. But i saw some familiar spits during my lap, as are on the board.

    Have a good one eveybody

    Oh btw that first sector again :nervous: :lol:

    Hello everyone. Brand new to the forum, first time trial and pretty new to the game and this was my first time using a wheel and manual transmission. Managed to buy a T80 for £10 locally...big spender! No racing seat etc - my T80 is attached to my old Workmate bench. You gotta start somewhere I guess? So literally a total noob across the board as is reflected in my timings. That being said I'm having lots of fun, and doing this has definitely got me more confident with the wheel. I love that wee car!
    So my first embarrassing splits... (don't laugh too much)
    39.198
    42.414

    I think my lines are ok but my gear changes are all over the shop and braking points have got a lot to be desired. But will keep at it and I'm aiming to knock off at least a second off each split. Won't get me anywhere near the rankings but that's OK.

    Welcome any questions just ask :tup:
    By manual you mean not automatic, right? We don't allow the use of clutch...

    Thanks :)
    Yeah, not automatic. T80 just has accelerator and brake pedals anyway.

    BB +1 for now shifting at 7000 rpm, not sure if that is right? Had time for 10 laps last night. Not sure what the heck I am doing wrong in sector 2??? Need to carry more speed, duh.

    Really like this car and track, just need to find time this week to get laps in.

    Does your wheel come with paddle shifters as well?

    Yes, it does. It's a super basic wheel - not even force feedback but it's better than nothing and more fun than a gamepad.
