    Steward's Comments:

    Hot hatches refuse to die it seems, and we are glad :) The C layout seems made for front wheel drive cars, doing it's best to help the car turn in, so much so we kept this one unstaggered :D
    Enjoy!

    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 1 sectors: T1 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 98 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 98 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 98 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, October 14th 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.

    I can see there being a big variance in sector 2, one minor mistake at the top of the hill can cost multiple tenths. Oddly enough I haven’t found that frustrating, at least yet, seems like a really good combo.

    Exactly the same time at the line. Beeing that late into the exit of sector 1 kills some speed through the esses. Way better final turn but even at the end of the little lap. Work to do...
    Sorry for the double post!

    Interesting POV. So S1 means little this week. :lol:

    I was actually thinking that about S2 :lol: My two best laps are .1 apart in S1 but only .006 difference at the line. She’s a tricky combo this week, I’ll be very curious to see the end results. :)

    I think the actual point is that the high speed left at the start of T2 is a critical corner, and the T1 split happens to be in the braking zone for it.

    Since the corner is high speed and relatively neutral apex, there are all kinds of opportunities to both gain and lose time, all in the same corner.

    In reality, best approach will be to maximize exit speed because you are flat out for so long after. But the trick is to do that without dipping too much of the right side of the car in the dirt and lose momentum.

    This corner and the final one on the track will make or break the week. The rest is relatively simple, which is what makes it a very good combo. :tup:

    EDIT: The other thing I've realized about that corner is that it's pretty much turn 6 at Laguna Seca without being uphill.

    And it's funny, because folks commented when we ran the B version of the track that it had some Laguna Seca like qualities, and I tend to agree.

    Yet still, I hope we get the real deal at some point.
