    • Concrete and Tarmac painted green is not track.

    Steward's Comments:

    Barcelona wants a fast car and that's what we are doing. We fitted the Lexus with racing mediums so you can push this one to it's limits. Have fun!

    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 84 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 84 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 84 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, July 8th 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.

    Not happy yet, but I don’t think these splits are bad, just a little clumsy. Really nice combo.

    Only ever run this track on circuit experience 'was avoiding it' I was using the map for the first few laps as I was not sure what was next :p
    Anyway... got up to speed and more familiar with the track so to speak and starting to enjoy this track a lot :tup: There's lots to gain everywhere and this car has amazing mid turn grip under acceleration :bowdown: will take some time to get close to my target lap but here's my opening banker..

    Well, I’ve got a starter lap in. This one’s gonna take some work, I don’t know this track very well and higher downforce cars aren’t really my strong point. :)

    Great splits so far guys!! :cheers:

    The Porsche tapped me out and I'm literally doing these time trials and online racing only - better go do some single player stuff :tup:

    There's better ways to get credits quickly, but I usually do the Mercedes F-1 races...

    That's what I have been doing today.. replenishing funds :lol: I have been running the BMB 15 lapper in the x-bow.. 2 million credits an hour in a 100k car for an easy win is the way to go ;) Here's a link to a great x-bow set up posted by uMayBeSeated.. It still works even after the updates :tup:

    Wow, I am really struggling with this one. I know the circuit layout but no ran it much. It is quite tricky switching from side to side, catch the rumble strip on the first as you change direction it kicks out, other than that the car is superb. I’ll have some splits up soon but doubt they’ll be impressive this round.

    You can also use the Mazda RX500 destined to N300 for the BMB race if you’d like a change from the X Box, I found it a little easier to drive. I haven’t driven the Xbox since 1.39/1.40 though so maybe it’s easier now with all the extra grip we got recently. :)

    Trying to find the limits to the grip on this one. Balancing act between driving deep and getting back to the gas. Super fun combo. I’m sure my splits will look lopsided until I get it figured out. :crazy:

    Yeah I tried the RX500 @ BMB but preferred the x-bow for the duration :tup: I have been running this one tonight and it's a great event!! 330K in under 10 mins... The first car I tried is superb around Kyoto/Myabi and easily the quickest credits I found to earn so far for only 5 laps ;) you just have to avoid hitting the AI for the first lap and a half and the rest is simple steady hotlapping.. This is my new go to cash cow haha ;)



    Have fun guys! :cheers:

    First run at this, needed cash to get this one.

    Seem to be a bit off the pace here.

    Just seem to be either turning in too early and having to correct, or pushing to hard and understeering wide, I have only just jumped into it though so hopefully the rhythm will come

    Driving the Gr. 2 cars with all that aero requires some adjustment in mind set for sure.

    Also important to remember that you can go faster than you think in the high speed corners, and then you have to adjust your thinking for low speed.

    Driving these things is also not my expertise, but I at least know that much.

    Now, if you are having both your stated problems in the same corner, not sure if I can help you. :lol:

    It took me a while to get the drive of this right, just need to give it a another go to improve now. A lot of places to lose time.

    I haven't been back to this since my last update! but here's a T1 vid for whoever is struggling with the first section? I couldn't record from my fastest lap as it wasn't on lap 1 and the lap time would show in the recording... This is good enough for reference anyway :cheers:



    The sweeping right hander turn 3 is key to aim for the right hand rumble and just tickle it mid turn like the vid above and you can floor it knowing it will stay on track approaching T1... might take a few attempts but you will get it :tup:
