    Steward's Comments:

    Love both car and track on this combo, hope you people enjoy it as much as me.

    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 79 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 79 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 79 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, June 3rd 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 but not always, usually the new combo is up on Sunday. Just had the thread ready and wanted to give the people who are done with the Mazda something to do on Sunday.

    I’m not super familiar with Alsace, but I am fairly familiar with the Audi from GT6. It should be a fun week. :)

    Update, I got a little more out of it. In the future, do I just update my last post if no one else has posted or make a new one? Will fetchy still get the updated time if I edit the original post? Thanks for the help. :)

    Awful but I'm wanting something on the board as it's a good incentive to keep going throughout the week.
    Not a big fan of the track but maybe it will grow on me.

    Better in sectors 1 and 2, but messed up the final turn. So many missed apexes, so little time :lol:

    Remember to shift this thing early gents. The power drops off drastically at high RPM.

    On gamepad but switched from automatic to manual gear change as I knew a bit more could be squeezed out of those gear changes.

    If someone nails the apex’s on this, you’re going to see some alien times. It definitely won’t be me :lol:.

    I really love the car. I’m starting to like the track. I have to tell myself, it’s not a race car, it’s a car you race.

    My thoughts exactly and I don't think it's going to be me either. I'm way too impatient with this car as I find you literally have to wait for it to turn in and pointed well to the inside, because the incredible understeer is going to send you well wide as you open the throttle.

    I've never been very good with road cars, but this is a great opportunity to learn and I appreciate that.

    It definitely seems to want to go on a wee jolly when exiting corners.

    Yes that's the intended lesson here. To be precise on entry and patient on the throttle. It really goes a long way when transitioning to FR Cars.

    Enjoying the challenge of this one, definitely require precision and patience as you guys have said, neither are qualities that I'm blessed with an abundance of :lol: but I must learn!

    Still have issues in sector 1, but quicker in sector 2. Looking forward to the replays next week to see what others did differently.
