WRS Online Special Event II

On the weekend of May 3rd, WRS online will host its second special event on the GT6 platform.  Titled “Moff’s Triple Mix“, the event will feature 3 races of 18 laps each, at the DTM layout of the Nurburgring GP 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 the MR Layout ’99 Lotus Motorsport Elise, the FR Layout Mazda Roadster Touring Car, and the FF Layout Honda CR-Z Touring Car.  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 qualifier thread and follow the instructions.

WRS Time Trials

Week 14 of the GT6 WRS Time Trials is posted and ready for your to post some splits.  We’re visiting a favorite city track this week, the streets of the London circuit.  Titled ’221B Baker Street’, the combo uses an old favorite for the car as well, the ’98 Subaru Impreza STi Coupe. The leaderboard is already lighting up, with 16 drivers having times and the top 6 drivers separated by less than 3 tenths, as of this posting.

While Week 14 is up and running, Week 13 is not finished yet.  The event deadline is today 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 52 drivers in total, and the top 5 separated by less than 5 tenths.

Week 12 Results are not yet official, but the top times have all been verified.  We had a great turnout for the first rally event on GT6, with 41 drivers submitting a time.  Congrats to the event podiums.  Race Admin GTP_Vagabond took the overall win, while GTP_Ghostdriver and D2 Driver GTP_Argon rounded out the podium.
