GTPlanet’s WRS Introduces Streamlined Registration Process

01a8[1]

New Registration Process for the WRS

Gran Turismo’s 1.09 update introduced physics changes that significantly affected lap times on the original GT6 WRS Qualifier.  As a result, the race admin staff has been hard at work establishing a replacement registration system.

We’ve made it easier than ever to begin participating in our events right away.  The only requirement for new members is to upload a replay to a conversation with our WRS FetchBot, which is used to verify their PSN account.  Once that step has been completed, they can begin participating in events right away, and will receive a permanent division placement once they have successfully completed 3 of our Time Trial events.  Complete details on the new process can be found in this thread.

WRS Online Special Event V

On August 2nd, WRS online will host its fifth special event on the GT6 platform.  Titled “Moff’s Triple Mix Part Deux“, the event will feature 3 races of 34 laps each, at the short layout of the  brand new to the series Red Bull Ring circuit.  But wait, there’s more!  The catch is that participants will use a different car in each race, with each car having a different drivetrain layout.  Cars featured are all GT300 Base Models.  Specifically, the Lexus IS350 (MR), Subaru BRZ (FR) and Subaru Impreza (AWD).  The cars will carry stock configurations, and tuning is prohibited for this event.

Only current members of the GTP_Registry are eligible to participate.  Interested members should visit the race thread to register for the event.  If you’re not yet in our registry, but interested in participating in this or any of our online events, visit the Registration Thread and follow the instructions.

WRS Time Trials

Week 27 of the GT6 WRS Time Trials is live and ready for your to post some splits.  We’re visiting a favorite World Circuit this week, Suzuka.  Titled ‘All Hail Hans Hugenholtz‘, the combo uses a car we’ve never featured in any WRS event, the Spyker C8 Laviolette ’01. The leaderboard is already lighting up, with 9 drivers having times and the top 4 drivers separated by less than 1 second, as of this posting.

While Week 27 is up and running, Week 26 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 50 drivers in total, and the top 11 separated by about 5 tenths.

Week 25 Results are not yet official, but the times have all been verified.  We had a great turnout for the Civic Motul Mugen race car at Madrid, with 42 drivers submitting a time.  Congrats to the event podiums.  GTP_Mamba took his second overall win of GT6, while GTP_Eternal and RS__96_oO rounded out the podium.

WRS Online Events

WRS Online will host the 26th weekly race of GT6 on this Wednesday, ‘Mazda is as Mazda Does’.  It’s once again based on the Weekly Time Trial, and will feature a First Gen Mazda MX-5 Miata at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  The event will follow our traditional format, with a timed qualification, followed by a feature race of about 1 hour.

If you’re interested in participating, be sure and visit the race thread and follow the instructions to register for the event in your time zone!  We continue host Wednesday races in 2 convenient time slots, and one (or more) of these should work for most members in most regions:

  • 3:00 PM Eastern / 12:00 PM Pacific / 19:00 GMT / Check Local
  • 10:00 PM Eastern / 7:00 PM Pacific / 2:00 AM GMT / Check Local

Can’t make it on Wednesday nights?  We’ve begun to host Worldwide race events on the Saturday before the Time Trial Deadline.  The race time should be convenient for most members in most time zones.

  • 5:00 PM Eastern / 2:00 PM Pacific / 21:00 GMT / 7:00 AM AEST

We had a great turnout of 15 drivers for yesterday’s event in the Mazda, and a very competitive race, with less than 1 second separating the top 2 drivers and some great battles through the field.  Congrats to ItsAllAboutWins for the name appropriate overall win, and to GTP_Hasslemoff and GTP_crowhop for rounding out the podium.  Check out the full results here.

    Do the replays that need to be uploaded still the Renault Sport Megane R.S. Trophy ’11 and the BMW M3 GT (BMW Motorsport) ’11?

    1. LLOYDZELITE69

      No, you only need to upload one replay of any hot lap of your choosing for your liking, to verify your account. Then once you’re registered, you have to participate in 3 TT Events hosted by WRS.. Of course, to predict what division you’ll be placed in.

    2. LLOYDZELITE69

      Haha, the TT they have up. I’m not particularly the best at, I’ll do my best obviously :) thanks!

    3. EDK

      It does not matter which replay it is, as long as it matches the PSN you are registering for, it’s run online, and it’s a ghost replay.

    4. LLOYDZELITE69

      It’s online now, the Week 26 TT you see me in is actually me qualifying for me divison ranking as well. My first of 3

    5. Mini Stiggy

      Not online as in a online lobby, just online as in signed into PSN at the time you run your lap.

    6. EDK

      Time Trials are run in the Arcade Mode of the game, but your replay needs to show you signed into PSN.

      In addition to our time trials, we run Online Race events every week.

    7. OpticZero

      Since there is conflicting information here, let me see if I can get this understood. In order to register for the WRS now one needs to only run a Time Trial in an Online Lobby and NOT just an Arcade Mode Time Trial? The old way was to do them strictly in Arcade Mode; now it is in an Online Room?

      I ran an Arcade Mode Time Trial and gave the replay to FetchBot and I then received the “Accepted” message, however I do not see my name on the list for the next racing event on Wednesday, even after I registered for the Mazda MX-5 Race. I filled out both forms for the 3D3 Register and one for the entry of the car…but I am not listed.

      Help, please.
