    Lobby is open for practice. We will race today even with fewer than 5 drivers.

    Thanks for hosting the race, it was actually quite fun and had a nice twist with different drivers trying different strategies. I however lost 5 seconds when I catched up to drivers on old tires after I had swapped to fresh ones and couldn‘t get past. Also bottled it once which destroyed every chance of me getting a run for P2.

    However, if anyone fancys more One-Make racing and has some free time before the Sunday‘s WRS race feel free to check this out. :cheers:

    I was not trying to make it aggressively difficult for you, but also was not going to give you a wave by.

    Since I was having to short shift to fuel save, I figured you would get by on the first long straight, which is pretty much what happened.

    Did not help that you caught up at the same time as I caught up to routergod, so was kind of a quadruple battle, with DR_HASH in the mix.

    I had similar things happen in the Laguna Seca race a couple weeks ago. I went with the flat out strategy, and dropped in between a couple fuel save cars at my second stop.

    No offense for it, it was just a very unlucky place to catch up to you guys and going 4 wide into a corner just doesn‘t work :lol:

    I REALLY tried to stay out of the way there. I braked early and was just giving it up. I stayed as far track left as I could.

    Too many variables to account for with 4 drivers, though.

    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!

    Once Registered with WRS, Simply hit reply on the newest version of the Race Sheet and add your PSN name to the day(s) you would like to participate on.

    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 honor system. If you make a pass and accidentally mess another driver up, 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 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:

    Looking forward to this one. Looks like I will have to go in early for work on Sunday so I can get back home in time for this.

    Great!

    @suprajef should be there, and @roamer2629 was able to run last week. I think his connection works a bit better when I host, for whatever reason.

    And we have had at least 5 for every race. Some weeks 7 or 8.

    I should be able to make it. Looks fun!
    You might want to change course settings though. It still says Maggiore East, not Tsukuba
