    Steward's Comments:

    Time to drive a race car in the desert. We have used street cars here mainly, but the 86 is a great fit for those tight turns. Have fun and good luck!

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

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 80 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 80 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 80 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 10th 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.

    First 15 laps. May have to turn my FFB down on my wheel. Great combo. Super sticky and tough to judge where you need more or less gas. Good luck everyone

    The final sector is critical here, a lot of time to be won and lost there. I’m pretty happy with these splits but there are a few things to clean up.

    The ghost from my saved best lap will not display on the track, no matter how I set the new ghost thing about loaded data and personal best. I started having this problem with the gordini and thought it would disappear on its own. Very annoying.
    Anyone else has this issue?

    this looks fun. I love the Willow Springs tracks, especially with some of the smaller cars or classic cars so sending a Gr.4 car around it will be new to me.

    Somehow that makes me feel better haha.
    But it's super super annoying as it feels like starting from scratch every time. The ghost reaaally helps me get faster.

    My first entry, not a track I have driven on other than the test bits so not sure of the best lines yet. Hopefully I can improve.

    This is 100x more fun than the last one! You can throw this car around a little more :)

    I've definitely got more time to find but wanted to get a clean lap up as might not get another chance this week.

    Do you find the track as tough as last weeks? I couldn't get on with that one at all! With this one I find the second sector the toughest, trying to run smooth through there when weight is shifting everywhere is a nightmare, I either get it ok or completely wrong.

    Love the little chicane after the back straight with the two left handers after, I find even though you can take the first left flat out it doesn't give you enough stopping distance for the second so a little tap on the brakes before the first left works for me.

    Says the guy at the bottom of the leaderboard...

    For me it’s tougher because last week I was at least semi familiar with the layout, I was driving around there at first tonight not even knowing what corner was coming up next. :lol:

    It’s not so bad now that I’m getting to know it better, I still think it’s harder than last week though. Even putting 2 tires off here is a gamble depending on the corner you’re on, or even the one coming up next. :)

    I did catch one hot lap so far though. :)

    That is my issue too, I think I've only done this on a license type test, never really raced it.

    Actually I think I did my braking there in 1 go on my best passes. If you stick to the right in the portion before that first left so that you can give your left turn input from as far away as possible, then you can start braking in a straight line right as you pass the left kink.

    Being new to this, is it just the RED cones, not the driving option orange ones?
