    Steward's Comments:
    For those who think "Christmas comes only once a year." - James Bond. You're wrong. This week the WRS returns to the "land down under, my love" - Men at work. Last time was in week 56 in a Ford Falcon. This week we'll be using a V12 which becomes a more and more rare sight these days, like Jeremy Clarkson said.


    Bathurst is a physically demanding track which brutally punishes any loss of concentrations as the wall is always close by. That and it's great location make this track unique in the world and a wonderfull place to drive. But for those of you who might get a bit "shaken not stirred" due to the impact in to the wall or those who've been bounced around till their buthurts. Don't worry, underneath we included a lapguide made by @Tidgney. You can use it to reach your personal goals without crashing in the walls, use it to your advantage young grasshopper (sorry, wrong movie quote).


    Of course Aston Martins are used in James Bond movies since the early days of the movie franchise that's why this theme was chosen for this week's combo. And it's also the reason for the cheesy title reference.

    As a personal note from "The man with the golden Aston". I whish everyone the best of luck and a lot of fun down under! (God, that sounds wrong!)
    Kevin

    p.s.
    I hope you didn't find my phuns to me as dry as my (Aston)Martini:D

    Viewing your Time Splits:
    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
    • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
    • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
    • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
    • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
    • To post your T1 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • 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

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods):

    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime

    The following information can be discussed in this thread :

    • The first 3 splits: T1, T2 & T3 times
    • Any settings discussion

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 92 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):

    • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
    • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • 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 XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:
    [​IMG]
    • The deadline is Monday, October 26th 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:
    • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Good luck, :gtpflag:

    First few laps, very tentative over the top and at forest elbow. Will be interesting if anyone can straight line the first of the esses, tried it after reading the ignore the white lines part of the rules.

    21.016
    1:10.816
    1:48.016

    Finding 3:30-4pm works well, a good combination of having good light but also casting a few shadows over the circuit to use as braking markers.

    First 15 minute session. Lost about a tenth sector one, .25 going up the mountain, and maybe a tenth or so in the final sector.

    20.567
    1'07.500
    1'41.550

    Fun! :dopey:

    Brake balance is at 4/8.

    I do believe someone is a mind-reader around here....have been watching the recent V8 Supercars 1000K @ Bathurst over the last couple of days and was thinking we really needed a TT on this awesome track :D Looking forward to this as I haven't driven Bathurst for quite a while and have never driven the car (that I recall)

    The last WRS event here (Ford Falcon) I struggled to find any pace or improvement during the week so I didn't even submit a time.

    @GTP_Dutchy I'm so glad you included the guide by @Tidgney. (His track guides are excellent and I find them very helpful). I'm now looking forward to "learning" the track and have no excuse not to submit a lap this time. Thanks :tup:

    Might actually give this a crack if I can get enough time during the week... just checked out the car (pleasantly surprised) and tried to set a clean ghost to chase. Probably wouldn't have put splits up, but in an amusing coincidence...

    Hi, Joel :D

    20.616
    1'08.333
    1'43.166

    Really need to learn this track.

    There's a fair bit left in the squiggly part of t3. I'd be pretty happy to get .2 more out of the lap.

    Have't run a WRS in ages... thanks to Dennis (@DTM) for the heads up on this combo :tup:

    20.434
    1'07.650
    1'42.017

    Lost a bit in T2, and a big chunk of time in T3, but will chase it down across the week.

    Thought this was going to be a fat lump of understeery lard but I was pleasantly surprised.

    I used this car from a previous race in a different GTPlanet series and just ran it, as is, with a BB of 1/4.

    I won't be submitting a time for this week due to personal reasons.

    With such a heavy car you would expect no grip but this thing has bags of grip :tup:

    20.467
    1'07.533
    1'41.600

    Ditched a 41.4 T3 so there's still a good bit left for me at the line.. Great combo! :cheers:

    Edit: What is the rear Toe setting supposed to be? Fetchy has rejected my replay on an invalid rear toe setting, yet I haven't touched it...is this because of an update and I, presumably, bought the car before said update? I assume if I reset it, it should work correct?

    Yeah, reset your suspension and try fetchy again. It should work.
