    Steward's Comments:
    This track is pretty amazing. Love the F1 history, and we have had some nice WRS turnouts here. Have fun. :tup:

    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 4 sectors: T1, T2, T3 and T4 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 78 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 78 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 78 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 27th 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.

    I remembered car as a very fine balanced car from the early days of GTS when I used it a lot on the weekly online races on Interlagos. But it has quit some understeer now. Don't know if it's a physic change or the track. Anyway once I got used to it, it will be fine.

    Don't let the 2nd and 3th sector fool you. If your fast in the 2nd your 3th will suffer from it. And visa versa.

    Good example is the are the spilts of the nr 8, 9 and 10 from many weeks ago. Nr 8 is the fasted in the 2nd of the 3 and slowest in the 3th sector. Nr 10 is the slowest in the 2nd and the fasted in the 3th. If you add all their 2 sectors nr 8 and 9 are 1 thousand apart. Nr 10 is about 3 hundredth faster than the other 2.

    Enjoy the race

    I did not pick up on understeer at all, nor did the other testers.

    What were you driving before you tried this? And are you sure you have the right tires?

    Yeah have the right tires. Once you pick up pace you will notice the understeer. It's not that heavily just some corners. Not that strange with a 4WD the the nose wants to straighten up on the exit. And some corner some understeer on the entry.

    What do you mean what was I driving before?

    I just mean if you drive a Lancia Stratos and then jump in any other car, you will perceive that car to understeer.

    The Stratos was the best example I could think of for the "all it does is oversteer" car. :lol:

    Absolutely love this track. This is another car I probably wouldn’t have ever tried on my own. I like how it doesn’t go crazy if you dip a tire into the grass. Being early on the gas and finding a smooth line seems to be the key.

    This gonna be a big pain in the ... to put your best sectors in one lap

    Think sector one can be much faster. Because I always struggle there

    Thanks, I didn't run many laps on this so far and have yet to figure out whether to use 2nd or 3rd gear for the second left hander (Surtees). Keeping it in third seemed to lead to quicker T2 times but slower T3s and dropping to 2nd resulted in slower T2 times and quicker T3s.

    I've been wondering why my sector 1 was so off pace. Thought it was Druids (T2). Maybe I've been messing it up. I just don't see how. Now I'm thinking it's not that corner, but my exit from Paddock Hill (T1) that's giving me a slow run-in to Druids. Struggling to get it right consistently and of course when I do, I make a mistake elsewhere (usually at Westfield Bend (T6).

    Those two turns, T1 & T6, are really doing a number on me. I've always had a love / hate relationship with this course. I love it, but it hates me.
