    Thatís exactly why your leaderboards are awesome, find friendsí times, try to beat all of them

    Btw, how are you getting the data now? Scraping it?

    There is our number one
    Yes, the data is scraped from the HTML tables of the WMD leaderboard page.

    General update: There are some new tracks that should be included tomorrow. I just added Cadwell, Americas, Donington, Dubai, Fuji, Glencairn, Ruapuna, Sonoma and Zhuhai.

    I found your leaderboards over the festive break. It's just what I'd been asking for in another thread - a way to view and compare just my times without so many other drivers making mine so hard to find (using the official leaderboard site is a nightmare).

    Thank you for putting this together, hope you can find a way to complete the tracks list someday.
    One suggestion/request.. would it be possible to add a class filter to be used alongside the user filter. For easier comparison of all of just my GT3 times for example?

    I added a some code that allows to filter all times of a user by classes. Since its a quick and dirty hack it will probably screw up the pagination when enabled, but it should be better than nothing and should not have side effects when it is disabled (which is the default)

    Excellent, excellent effort and very well done, thanks a lot for providing it! I've been using your page a lot for long now, but hadn't seen this thread.
    The missing tracks are a problem though...how about refreshing the data every 3 or so days, instead of every day, in order to include all tracks instead?

    Finding this leaderboard brings back memories of driving in Grand Prix Legends over many years. GPL had a similar site that helped keep the game fresh and active well-beyond any expectations.
    That site was GPLRank (http://gplrank.schuerkamp.de/php-pub/gplrank.php)

    The idea was that your lap times were compared against a benchmark time over a series of 11 tracks (originally GPL only had 11 tracks) and a score given that was literally how many seconds over/under the benchmark you were.
    GPL shipped with an example replay of a lap at each of the circuits in the game, so those naturally became the benchmark times. Not sure what would be used here for benchmarks... but I'd love to see a similar feature someday for PCars2

    The new class filter is really useful. I like that I can now easily just look at how my GT3 or my LMP1 times compare across the cars.
    Any chance a track filter could be added also?

    Also - having managed to submit a time now for every car at one track (Catalunya), several of the cars have identical names in the times list. Is there any way to separate these? I thought it might be useful to add a class column which would differentiate the 3 Ford Escorts, but that wouldn't cover duplicates like the Bentley Continental or Toyota GT-One.

    A few suggestions/requests if I may:

    - The car class combo boxes are not alphabetically sorted, can you please change that?
    - When viewing times under the "Users" page, there's a column "Added" included, showing when each time was logged, very nice. When viewing times per track in the first "Times" page, no such column is included? Can you add that? It would be extremely helpful to see when each time was logged, due to the big speed differences in some cars after each patch.
    - Maybe you can add a class filter also to the "Vehicles Comparison" page.
    - Small annoyance, pick a user with a lot of laps registered (so "Users" page), you see 50 times per page, for a total of "x" pages, nice. Now set a filter to some class, now the number of pages is the same as before ("x"), with only a few times per page.
    (Edit: just noticed that you already know about that, it's due to the trick for implementing the filter, so ignore this)
    - Finally, if you plan to add more tracks, I'd personally love to see some of those: 24h Le Mans, Azure Coast, Oschersleben A, Donighton National, Knockhill, LongBeach, Snetterton 300, Silverstone National, Sportlands Sugo, Watkins Glen Short.

    Thank you very much again for providing this extremely helpful portal and TIA if you implement one or more of the above requests.
