    • 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.

Steward's Comments:
This is an interesting track configuration and the Skyline powered restomod Z is an excellent fit here. Great sounding, great driving car, and a track layout that's challenging but not over the top. 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.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 87 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 29th 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.

Please take note of the track specific boundary rules. Some of the red and white rumbles are NOT track, namely those that are doubled up with a rumble strip near the track and have grass in between the first and second rumble.

As always, if you have questions, please ask during the week. Don't make assumptions.

Boom, a new tt, Ill give this a quick go, hopefully this one I'll post a time in

How do I watch and get times from my lap replays? Really struggling with the new game :banghead::banghead::banghead:
There's a timing screen just after exiting track. I normally grab my splits from there.

If you are watching a lap in your library, click on the little gear (settings menu) and change the display race info option to "Display All".

Your splits will show on screen during the lap, and you can ALSO see them in the "Live Timing" menu, which is the graph icon.

I've settled on shifting at 75%. It's not a lot different from 100%, but the car does lose torque up top and loses power right before the limiter.

I only use 2nd in the final 2 corners.

These were set with BB 0, have not tried anything else. Thinking +1 or 2 could be effective.

OK got my other controller, do most people prefer l2 r2 as the brake /accel pedals, and r1 l1 go change gear?

I use R2/L2 as throttle/brake and I use the right analogue forward/back as the gears, like a sequential stick, forward drops down a gear and pull towards you to shift up.

O used to change gears with circle for upshift and square for downshift. Not many options other than the triggers for throttle and brakes after butons became digital.

I still can’t believe that by now someone doesn’t make a dedicated “racing” controller with similar controls to an RC car or the like, or a slide pad/small wheel like device for the left joystick and triggers designed to be used as Gas/Brake. There has to be millions of people out there who would buy one. :)

True. I had developed a style that allowed me to take advantage of the few things the DS4 is better at, mainly countersteering. This combo shouldn't be that much of a handicap for the controller, just try to be really aggressive getting back on the throttle. Also sensitivity all the way up.
