    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Green surfaces behind rumbles are NOT Track.

    Steward's Comments:
    Interestingly, Tsukuba has a very old school feel, but was not completed until 1970. Work on the track began in 1966, the year after our car this week was released. The Shelby on Sports Mediums with no LSD is a tricky beast, it feels more like comfort tires. This is one of my favorite tracks, and the car sounds amazing anywhere. Hope you enjoy is as much as I do, 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 89 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 88 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 88 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, August 12th 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.

    The negative BB helps a lot with that.

    Brake until the Apex.

    Its quite annoying that you only have the option of ghost car and not ghost line in gt sport, I find it really hard to drive when the ghost is just in front of me, it just ruins it. I do like the live time display though. Last splits for today, bed time

    What a cool combo! :cool:
    No LSD is quite the challenge, though being 60's themed I'd think LSD would be appropriate :dopey:

    Me too, keep it off most of the time and use the delta, just flick it on and off occasionally on the straights

    Yes this is what I have ended up doing, I just really liked the line, it was so un intrusive and seems weird they can't provide it for this game, oh well

    No, the ghost to be a line, instead of a car, like on the last gt made for ps3

    Its OK, I'm getting used to using the delta, I also like that you can offset your best time too, better to chase and go faster

    Still don't think I will be competitive, but next splits

    I haven't raced on here yet, but last weeks 'daily race' was on Tsukuba, and I spent a LOT of time racing on there - I'm hoping I may be able to be competitive this week on this track. I am planning on starting to run some times tonight, as last night I spent the whole evening trying to get a nice clean lap on Nurburgring lol.

    Howdy Bert :)
    Here's a quick couple of things I'm doing. I'm only using 2nd and 3rd gear for the whole track and revving the rods out of it. The first corner I approach in 3rd, there's an access road on the left, I start braking at it's end where the grass comes back, braking early is better than late, trail brake to the apex shifting to 2nd, down to roughly 62 kph. Then full gas revving past red line, lots of inner wheel spin, shift to 3rd, start braking at the start of the curbing on the right entering the hairpin. Trail brake to the apex down to roughly 58 kph, shift to 2nd. Full gas and wheel spin, approaching the next right, where the left wall goes from hay bales to white signage, I let off the throttle and try to arc smoothly through the corner keeping my speed over 100 kph, up to third towards last hairpin. There's a green strip along the left side approaching the 50m sign, about half way along it I start braking, trail brake to the apex down to roughly 60 kph, shift to 2nd, gas and wheel spin onto back straight, over rev it, shift to 3rd, then stay in third over revving along back straight. Approaching the last corner I gently brake starting just before the pit entrance sign, gently trail brake deep into corner to where the red white curbing starts down to 115 kph, stay in 3rd, where the red white curb ends go full gas and spin your way to the finish line staying in 3rd crossing the line at roughly 150 kph.
    Well I hope somehow this is helpful for y'all, and remember to keep on keeping on :cheers:

    Have seen many .3's in T1, just need to tie them to the rest of the lap. Last sector the toughest to be consistent, as it always is here.

    I know what you mean in that last sector, the last corner and it's line makes a huge difference.
