    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
    • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires in-line would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible.
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty.
    • No hybrids.
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind. We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules.

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips, Blue Painted Rumble Strips/Concrete, and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The sections of gray hard surface behind white lines are NOT track. The white line designates the track boundary in those sections. I'm not sure there's an advantage in using them, but let's not find out.

    Steward's Comments:
    An all time classic GT series car at a brand new track layout. The engine for this car is of course, in the boot. And the track is on an Italian Island.

    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 85 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 85 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 85 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 15th 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,

    Shifting at the limiter, about 84 MPH for 3rd to 4th and 111 MPH for 4th to 5th.

    Only using 2nd in the right hander just before T2 split. Turn 1, I am not quite sure yet, but I think 3rd is faster. I used second on this lap, but lost nearly 2 tenths to my prior best that I made up later in the sector. My prior best was 3rd gear in turn 1.

    It's easy to hit the limiter in 2nd so I shift around 59 or 60.

    3rd gear in turn 1 for sure.

    And I think if you could carry enough momentum in the right hander you might not need 2nd at all. But it was costing me a couple tenths on some sloppy runs.

    Forgot to mention before, I was using BB+1.

    I changed to +2 on this run.

    Now going to say, you don't have to worry about winding it to the limiter.

    Even shifting at 90% on the HUD seems fine.

    This lap, I did not use 2nd gear at all.

    36.404
    30.239

    I think 2nd is safer and more consistent for the final uphill right hander in T2, but you can get away with 3rd by carrying enough momentum.

    I agree, I haven’t been using 2nd gear at all. I just knocked a big chunk off of my time too, but I put a 3rd tire slightly off on the exit of the uphill right hander at the end of sector 2 that nullified the lap. This is a really fun combo, I’m having a Blast with this car! :D

    Thanks. :)

    This combo also suits me, I'm a sucker for MR road cars on comfort tires.

    After ~40 laps, thanks @EDK for the BB +2 and shift tips. I think staying in 4th for the final chicane is best.

    Been .1 faster in sector 1 and .05 faster in sector 2, and a PB on the final.

    Bit off topic but can someone tell me why clutch is strictly prohibited in the wrs? I'm using a DS4 so not an issue - I'm really just wandering what the reasoning is.

    It's often provided an advantage that is only available to folks who have a wheel and an H shifter.

    PD themselves actually began disallowing it in sport mode races due to the advantage it was providing. In some road cars on some combos, it was giving an advantage of nearly 1 second per lap.

    PD have since sped up the shifts in road cars as well, so that gap would be narrowed. But we would rather not have to guess how much advantage it can provide, it's simpler for us to just ban it.

    Interesting. I would have presumed using the H shifter would have been slower than the flappy paddles. Thanks for the info @EDK

    I bettered the lap I had to delete last night, kept it in bounds this time too. :D
    I know there’s still more there, I’m just not sure where to look at this point. I’mma keep trying though, I’m thoroughly enjoying this car, and combo. :)

    I’m I the only one that finds it a little weird to drive a mid engine rear wheel drive hatch back?

    What’s everyone’s livery look like? Here’s mine.

    I really like this track it has nice flow to it, though the S turn before the straight is challenging :crazy:
    I love this car again, it's so nicely balanced, it rotates perfectly mid corner on comfort soft tires :)
    Thanks to Y'alls advice I'm staying in 3rd gear in the tight turns and in 4th through the last S, and BB+2 :tup:
