    Eligibility

    This WRS-Online event hosted by TPC Racing is open to GTP_WRS Registered members only. If you are not currently on the registry, join now by following the GTP_WRS Registration!


    Delaying or Restarting Race Start

    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will only be restarted in these cases:

    • Multiple drivers report a black screen/hang, instead of the 3-2-1 countdown.
    • One or more drivers get disconnected before race-pace has begun ("GO" for grid-starts, end of formation lap for rolling starts).
    • Steward realizes there is a condition that would lead to an unfair or poor race experience.
    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will explicitly NOT be restarted for:

    • Latecomers, even if you've registered
    • Driver realizes he picked the wrong car parts (ie, tires) or driving options (ie, Auto tranny)

    Lobbies
    -Lobbies will be open approximately 30 minutes before Qualifying starts for warm up/practice.

    -Qualifying will consist of 1 out lap followed by 2 hot laps, once your hot laps are completed please stay on the track and park your car somewhere in the 2nd sector and off the track while everyone else completes their qualifying. Leaving the track may cause you to lose your place on the grid. If you go off the track or crash in qualifying, please be sure that when you do re enter the track that it is safe to do so, never re enter the track when there is any type of oncoming traffic.

    - After Qualifying has finished we will start the race. The race will be Approx. 50 minutes, Full Race Details are posted below.

    - We will start off by not using the games built in Penalty system, for now we will use the honour system. If you make a pass and accidentally mess another driver up, you give the place back, even if it means you have to give up 10 other spots in the process. If we find this isn’t working we will move to using the games built in Penalty system, but I don’t foresee that’s being an issue.

    Track Boundary Guidelines

    Drivers are expected to do their best to stay within track boundaries per the OLR. Mistakes happens over the course of a long race and the random off or two will be overlooked in most instances, but if a pattern of boundary abuse is observed penalties will be handed out which include 15 seconds for a "minor" pattern of abuse, 30 seconds for a "substantial" pattern of abuse, and a DQ for "complete disregard" of track boundaries. In cases where penalties may not impact the driver (e.g. DC), the penalty may be carried over to the next event and may be applied as a 5 (minor) or 10 (major) grid spot penalty.
    It's up to the admins' discretion exactly what qualifies as "minor", "substantial" or "complete disregard". Going outside the rumble by a centimeter isn't as serious as a car length wide excursions into the run off area. Factors such as dirty air and traffic also come into play. If you find yourself going wide then the next lap you're expected to slow down a bit more to make sure you stay within boundaries. If you make the same mistake multiple times and you want to avoid a penalty you can always self-penalize during the race by lifting for a very brief period upon returning to the track. Continuing to hammer the throttle after repeated boundary overruns may very well end with a post race penalty.

    General Guidelines:
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification. This includes pit entry/exit.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track.
    • If you overrun boundaries by accident, lift momentarily to make sure you don't gain any advantage.
    • Do not complete a pass that was made possible by going outside track boundaries.
    Track Specific Guidelines:
    • Same track limits as the Time Trial.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:
    • Unless otherwise specified, all rules from the original WRS event apply.
    • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
    • TPC Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to kick out or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are kicked out of the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future TPC events.
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track including green painted concrete.
    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.

    Good Luck, OLR Team:gtplanet:

    @Hasnain282 is correct, to participate you’ll need to sign up for WRS, it only takes a few minutes. Once signed up you can just copy and paste the sign up sheet for the race you’d like to participate in and then just add your name to it. I’ll get those up now. :)

    WooHoo!! Congratulations and Thank You @Sven Jurgens for being our first Sign Up!! You can just stay in the pits for the Q session if you’d like your usual starting position. :)

    Did you register with WRS? I haven’t figured out how to check yet, I’m still new at this myself. :)

    Well I usually joined all the races I could. Participation was down with sport compared to gt 6. I believe it is you who can reignite this race. They are always fun and help you improve on the tt. Always save the replays cause you can see what the fast guys do even with tire wear and fuel.

    Awesome, any opportunity to share a track with you is always a pleasure man! :cheers:

    Let’s hope so, it’s very similar to how my other lobby runs except for the fact that it’s only one race, but it does use combos that people are already practicing all week so that should be helpful in getting participants. I am always open to suggestions as well if anyone has ideas on how to improve things. :)

    I always save replays, for the reason you mentioned and also to grab race photos afterwards, I never enjoyed photos until GT Sport, now I absolutely love taking and sharing race shots. :)

    I was always tempted to join these when they were active but only ever attended in the Mitsu for week 3 @ Kyoto.. It was Great fun :cheers:

    I always think about taking part and then the fact I have only ever had 10 races online with GTsport and my strategy for pitting and adjusting to tyre wear is right out the window haha.. Then I put myself off attending :D Anyway!... If I don't manage to make this one like all the rest in the past? I would like to wish you all a Great event and hope it keeps these races going again on a weekly occurrence! :cool:

    Well done Pigems for kick starting these again :tup:
