    • Blue and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • Concrete and tarmac painted yellow is not track.
    • No contact with walls visible or invisible.

    Steward's Comments:

    Not many tracks can make room for 938 horsepower, and there's even fewer where the R92 isn't a murderous monster of a car. Something about a blue moon must be soothing because it's perfectly happy to stretch it's legs around this track :D

    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 sector: T1 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 93 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 93 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 93 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, September 9th 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,

    This combo looks bonkers on paper, but it's a total hoot.

    You HAVE to try it.

    Fetchy is broken.

    I was trying to see if that would work, but he's on strike entirely.

    I have a PM out to our leaderboard guy, hoping he replies soon.

    This is fun. I wasn’t expecting it to brake that well. And as long as you stay out of second gear it doesn’t want to spin out. I never know what to expect with car that’s 900+hp and almost 30 years old.

    Just did another 50 laps, they go by so quickly that you don’t even notice how many you’ve done. :)

    It's tough to do consistently, but the key there is to eat a lot of the apex curb. Get the car in tight to limit your risk on exit.

    Sometimes, you just go flying in there and you know what's coming. :lol:

    Yup, every time I try to get on the throttle a hair early thinking I’ve got the angle right I cream the wall on the exit. I don’t know why I keep thinking I’ve got the line right to do so. :lol:

    Notice the first 2 custom livery pics here in the Thread properly kept the "NISSAN" script on the nose of the car.

    To the extent that I momentarily believed that some sanity was introduced to the Livery Editor and proper base graphics were carrying over.

    Then I noticed the stock livery has it in a bit different spot, so I then realized these guys were being creative and proper. :)

    You, on the other hand. :scared:

    ;) :lol:

    But the last corner still confuses the hell out of me. So many lines to take.

    Sometimes I come across a time trial that I can't stop running. I hate damn walls, have to admit, but I think I did over 300 miles today trying to figure out the last sector. I have no idea where the time went.

    Great combo.
