Quote from DaveWS :Yeah the dogfight was probably even more exciting when it actually happened. It was actually a best of 3 shootout. Tom won the first, Des won the 2nd, and Tom led then spun in the final.

shame

tom is faster than des but breaks under pressure. surely thats easy enough to train ? i'd rather have tom over des driving in my car and maybe things for you would of turned out differently
dayum you should of made it through. deffinatly the best of the 3 tbh.

looks like you had fun
Hehe cheers, yeah unfortunately for me they went with the "safe" option I think in the end. I guess to go with me would have been too risky - although I felt like I was more than capable! Was pretty gutted at the time to miss out on the final race with the other regions but it's their competition at the end of the day and it was an awesome week to say the least. :P
I havent seen the final of des racing the others but since i was driving on iracing with him last night i cant imagine he won it.
Just fyi the bmw z4 m3 r2d2 is nice fun little car to drive the in the latest time trials
I like those new overtaking challenges. You don't need to finish first, but it motivated me to do so anyway.
How do you guys find the will to play those spoon-fed challenges, I've found them an insult. They weren't capable of providing a classic hotlap leaderboards and they substituted it with that shite.

http://cdn.memegenerator.net/instances/400x/31510752.jpg ..they always have to have something "special". GT series is very "special" in some ways...

I am very tolerant though, i enjoy it as it is and at least it keeps me interested in the game, so it doesn't catch dust.

The seasonals are really bad no question about it. It is pretty amazing how bad job pd has managed to do with them lately. Especially because in the latest seasonals pd for some reason has forced driver aids which you can not even turn off. So the seasonal races are pointless "catch the rabbit" chases most of the time and not even worth playing.

Personally I just play the good ones and imho the bmw z4 m3 time trial is fun.
Currently the highest ranked Australian in the Weider overtake challenge.

Also to the above comment, Aids are not forced they are just on default you change them manually.

On the last 5 seasonal races or so srf is forced on and you can not turn it off. SRF basically artificially adds grip to a tire when it is sliding. So it is not just a driving aid but it also changes the physics.

No your confused with it being not allowed, i know the difference between it being on and off and its definitely off the last sector on the Weider is like driving on ice which wouldn't be the case if it was on.

look through this click on their names(it shows what aids they used and what not), and you will find everyone has skid recovery off: http://eu.gran-turismo.com/au/products/gt5/event/d59984.html

Yes, in the latest overtaking challenges it is not allowed but in the last 4 or 5 seasonal races before the newest overtaking challenges it was forced on and you could not turn it off.

Here is the list of recent seasonal races:
650PP NASCAR Challenge - SRF forced on and can not be turned off
750PP Real Circuit Tour - SRF forced on and can not be turned off
PP590 German Touring Car Championship - SRF forced on and can not be turned off
380PP NR-A Roadster Cup - SRF forced on and can not be turned off
400PP World Compact Car Race - SRF forced on and can not be turned off
600PP Super GT - SRF wasn't forced on I think

Personally I just think it is insanely stupid move from pd to force srf on. Just insanely stupid.

oh there just seasonal Ai championships though no one cares for that, racing against GT Ai is always going to be fail.
Bit of a bump but if you don't know already GT6 is being revealed today @ Silverstone. GTPlanet have a live blog. https://twitter.com/gtplanetnews

First pic:
Quote :We’re pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform.” explained Kazunori Yamauchi.

Launching a system seller game for the previous generation console at the same time as the next generation console launches... what.
Why are they making this for the 5 generations back PS3, instead of the 2 generations back PS4?

I've read it will have 1200 cars? How much of those will look like shit, like with GT5?
Quote from Franky.S :well,
confirmed by kaz himself gt6 will be compatible with PS3, PC, tablet and smart phone.

more detailed info here:

That just means web browser based lap timings etc, just like B-spec races can now be controlled from browser in GT5.
1200 cars wow
