WRS Time Trials

The WRS is celebrating this week!  The Week 5 Event makes it 11 years of Time Trials, for the longest continuously running race series on the GT Platform.  For the anniversary event, we’ve returned to the location of the first WRS, Trial Mountain Circuit.  The event is titled “1(11) Yea(R)s“, a play on words for the car used in the event, the Lotus Elise 111R Race Car.  We’re running with stock power, but full tuning is allowed, a first on GT6 WRS.  Come celebrate with us, by running this fantastic combo.

While Week 5 is up and running, Week 4 is not finished yet.  The event deadline is tomorrow at 11:59 PM GMT, don’t forget to submit if you’ve been running.  There’s some very close action on our leaderboard, with 87 drivers in total, and the top 10 separated by less than 0.5.

Week 3 Results are not yet official, but the top times have all been verified.  Congrats to the event podiums, some new faces showed up this week.  doodlemonopoly took the overall win, while firstmivec and GTP_Spud rounded out the podium.

Check out this video of doodlemonopoly’s winning lap!
