You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'.
To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Page' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay' option.

Submission:




  • All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 80 Submission ) to (Vaxen):





  • Please submit your time in the following format on a single line:
  • [Division#]---M'SS.XXX---GTP_Tag
  • (Example-) [division 2]---1'44.678---GTP_EDK
  • You can submit only once
    [*]Please include in your submission PM your division, GTP_Tag and final lap time
    [*]The deadline is Monday May 17th 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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.


Time verification:

Save your ghost replay and keep it at least a full two weeks after the event's deadline:



  • Racers ,named by the OLR Admin staff, (if any) will be required to submit a replay for verification
  • Any submitted time is subject to a time verification request
  • When a time verification has been requested, the concerned racer must provide the correct replay within seven days of the request
  • Failure to do so will result in the removal of the unverified submission from the results table
  • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

Good luck,
OLR Admin Team

The Follow-through was a bit slow but Gambon was good enough. :dopey:

As Rudi, I don't think I'll give it another go.

Yeah, it took me a while to figure out where to use this car. You would think, small car, Front Wheel drive. A nice, tight track, right?

Well, if you think it's silly on this wide open track with sweeping turns, and staggered compounds, you should try driving it someplace like London, with S2's on both ends. :lol:

Trust me, I did you guys a favor. ;)

Anytime the car manufacturer IS NOT Lotus I consider you doing me a favor. :lol:

I'll be giving this one a go over the next few days (I hope) - just so busy these days for some reason. Need to finish that project that makes me look like Jordan Tresson so I can race more often. :sly:

2nd try

Somehow totally screwed 1st sector, .4xx slower than my previous fastest lap but faster in 2nd & 3rd sectors.

Anyone have any shifting tips with this car. I'm in staying in 3rd through all the slower corners & 4th through chicane. Shifting at 7000 each time.

First session tonight yielded these:

0'34.249
1'03.145
1'21.389

This is a really odd combo and takes a ton of getting used to - I hope I can manage a few more sessions and shave off just a bit more - its very interesting how the car will roll through some of the turns but not so well on others - and the bus stop feels like I have to skate through 2 NHL defenders to push a puck past the best goalie in the league. :lol:

Yes the S1's on the rear seem to be of little disadvantage in the slower corners, but as soon as you hit the high speed bus stop, the back is on the edge and slides as soon as your a little off line.

Nice time for a first session too. 👍

Started my new job yesterday (check this if you're interested) so no WRS for me these days, but I am countring down for E3 to see what they will tell us about GT5.
Also, that news about being able to drive around the Nordschleife in the SLS is disturbing, especially with a Merc dealer just around the corner :)

T1: 34.702
T2: 1'03.625

X What?
I gave this one a go last night for a couple of laps. Is it just me or is this car to lazy to turn. Or is this a reminder why i hate FWD so much. Specially when you just get out of the Cali on Fuji 700PP.

It feels very weird in the begining. When you enter a corner it doesn't want to turn in and all of a sudden it does, at that moment you want correct it and floor it but when you do that it straighten up. I hope i find some time this week to better my time and control the throttle better.

After all i think participating in the WRS makes you a better driver.
