Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 81 Submission ) to (Vaxen):

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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.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

I think not
Aha, I wondered when this might turn up in the WRS! I had a go the other day and it's not as bad as you might think on the N3's. So, does it have to be a blue one then? :lol:

I was wondering hoping for this too. If you haven't tried it - it's a lot better than you might think.

I did race it a couple of times but the up-take was low :(

No, doesn't have to be blue. I just liked the word play for the theme. ;)

This is a great combo, I did a few races and really enjoyed it, very close racing and no punters. And the car is a bit grippier on these tyres than most others because of the aero kit. Although the turbo lag can become a problem. Anyway thanks for the combo, hopefully I'll have time this week.

I'm gonna throw a few laps at this tonight. Then I'm off GTP for the next week or so.

If you get a chance this is also quite a fun online race as well!

:cheers:

Hopefully some more to come off these, but putting a clean lap together is extremely difficult.

hehe wow, with splits like that I think Carl's going to wrap this up tonight :lol:

Here's my attempt to get close:

T1: 1'03.812
T2: 1'56.088

Incredibly challenging combo with no two laps ever the same.

All the best

Yes, only more proof that I'm going insane. ;)

You figured out my intent, and I did think of the Zed thing, but I posted it anyhow.

You pass the test this week. :)

That's the theory out of the way, now for the practical....

T1: 1'04.656
T2: 1'57.670

I'm confident that I can take a big chunk out of that yet, once I shake the little Suzuki habits.

cant get past T1- 1'06 guys any pointers..........:)

I'm probably not the best source of advice but what I've been doing is concentrating on the line I want to take and trying to apply the throttle as smoothly as possible so as not to break the traction.

I jumped into the race a few times initially and just ran that. I found this stopped me from watching the time and helped concentrate more on getting around.

I hope this is of some help.

Fastas his idea is a good one...

Also when i did a few races online last week,i saw several guys staying in second gear instead if 3rd thru the ss's...3rd is much better in this combo:tup:

Smooth with steering/brakes and especially throttle is key here...:)

Hope this also helpes you out aswell as Fastas's idea...good luck.

Small update from a brief session tonight. This reminds me of chipping away at my normal car time during the GT5 Demo. :dopey:

1:05.063
1:57.499

Have seen about 0.5 better at T1, so should be able to improve on this lap in my next session. (I hope).

Had a session last night, but never really hooked up anything fast

1'03.729

Phenomenal splits Carl!!!! 1'03.4 is really on par with the world's best, when glancing at the online leaderboard time trial

My favourite track with a fun car? I can make time for this one...

First splits:
1'05.019
1'57.936

There's a bit of time to be gained in most corners, but I was pretty happy with the lap apart from at spoon where I threw away about 1/2 a second :(
