    Why can’t we get real F1? We have Vettel in GT but don’t have his car.

  2. Robkecl

    WTF !!!!!! Wake Up, playstation Network…..

  3. Seb Weasel

    Thanks a lot for these posts and for the website in general! This community is great.

    I did the Pre-1980′s Japanese Cars Drift Trial with a Toyota CELICA 1600GT ’70, without maxing out the power, which was a challenge but a lot of fun! Massive E-brake use, and slight suspension tweaks did the job. Can’t wait to try the FGT at Silverstone, and hopefully PD will fix the breach soon. Even though I’m nowhere near the top, it’s a big deal for the whole community.

    Happy racing this weekend everyone!

  4. Too bad the top time is using a modded car with 1:24:417 last I checked.

    • R34EVO9

      This is how problems started in the last gt game. Idk why we can’t just keep the stuff offline

  5. wvmgmidget

    I just wish the FGT car was premium

  6. mikronimo

    This time the difference from online and ingame is really big; after over 10 attempts i am at 1:41:xx in the seasonal; with the absolutely identical setup in the ingame, I made 1:35:xx at the 2nd attempt… how much is stupid this thing, apart the usual “shining like the sun” cheating of the ones that seem running on rails, when my car is like a soap bar?

    • Senna52

      Are you serious? I run roughly the same times online in the TT and in an offline TT. I don’t understand why you think it is any different? And other than the very top time, no one is cheating. Maybe some practice is needed on your end?

    • mikronimo

      @Senna52 I am absolutely serious because it’s a fact that there is difference between online and offline; i repeat: same setup and track, moving from online to offline immediately, but different behaviour of the car… for your knowing: i play at GT from GT3; enough practice, i guess! Last thing; all the world knows that is possible make huge PS3 mods, that means make believe to the online servers you performing the race with the due parameters, but instead your car run with soft race compound (just to make an example); and see their machine run like on the rails, while my car fly, in the online, from all sides (with a setting that allows me, after only 2 attempts, to lower the offline time of 6-7 seconds the gold) suspicion that they are cheating is a must…; maybe you’re not aware of that; now you know too!

    • Mini Stiggy

      Only the top time is cheating mikronimo. All the 29 are legit.

    • mikronimo

      @Mini Stiggy I watched only the first top time (for me it’s just an example, and some times a way to improve my attempt), so maybe you are right; of course I don’t spend all the day, every day, running, and i use a stick (a good one, a xbox360 replica, but a stick anyway), so i can not pretend to go further a certain level (sometimes i reach about the 300 place); but this is not the problem… i say that is really stupid try to win cheating, instead put the maximum effort and do all you can do: it’s a game, not the real life… so i complain against PD and the cheaters, because i want to play at the same conditions, either in the online than the offline, and not against the unbeatable (the cheater), but even in these cases, my life goes on the same way…

    • spongertwo22

      ^^^^so many grammar errors, hard to understand.

    • spongertwo22

      I’m taking about the reply that starts with, “@Senna52 I am absolutely serious”

    • spongertwo22

      Talking*…not being able to edit comments sucks!!!!!! Have to double, triple post to correct myself.

    • Have you set the grip levels correctly?

      Real/Low?

    • mikronimo

      @ spongertwo22 can you tell me which are the grammar errors? I’m still learning and improving my english, so it’s important understand where to point my attention to go further my actual level… anyway i am quite sure that there are not so many errors to make so difficult understand what i am saying, but i could be wrong…

      @m8h3r I worked around traction control, length of the gears and even on active steering control; i hardened and softened the suspension… in short, i worked a lot to find a good comprimise between stability and quick cornering (much more the first than the second, of course), but the car it’s always a lot slippery and the best time that i reached is around 1:39… i will check out your suggestion to see what kind of improvement can give.

    • drag lab 101

      @mikronimo, your English is fine.

      Punctuation is off, but not to the point the message is completely unreadable.
      I’d ignore- spongertwo22, if some can clearly see grammatical errors, then one can see how it should be read as opposed to how it actually reads.
      Either way.. Your message is not hard to understand.
      And by the posts spongertwo22 has made, I’d assume he was just here to nitpick anyway.
      Carry on & good luck on the issue.

  7. FGT @ silverstoned i almost thrown my g27 through my tv screen. My best time is 1:41,570 did 30 laps, i used 8 cars,12 frontwings and 96 tyres >:/

  8. davidfuryboy

    people complaining?..well nearly 1 year after purchased..its now we r starting to get what should already be in the game..and still no livery editor…or was that…the edit number and spoilers!..no coursemaker…dnt get me wrong but gt loss its core gameplay to merchandising events brand or new car…its business but one thats affect fans like me
    had become a pd and sony discusting automotive promotion tool..

  9. The paint chips I see for this (UK edition) are in order:

    Gold Chrome
    GT Grey 002-N
    GT Japanese 004-W
    GT Metallic 004-C

    Are they different in different countries?

    • HarryWS

      I’ve got the same – it looks like he’s put the chips wrong as out of the 4 events, 2 of them give you the same paint chip and the other two give you the same paint chip.

  10. dddsprayshop

    NICE . all 1st gamers that golded these events and got the twin paints?
    I got 1x twin paint and 1 other paint. Did not gold the Formule GT.

    Nice, pd changed the paints in those events, and now i can’t get those paints anymore.

  11. OriginalCheezIt

    I just checked the FGT Super Lap, and it says gold chrome is the prize paint…

  12. QuattroDelta

    I thought the Formula Gran Turismo was featured in the drift trials lol.

    The title is confusing.

  13. super_gt

    Formula GT?This car is ARCADE,BORING………………..

    • Croatian_STIG

      What… -.-

    • OpticZero

      Going to the arcade is awesome. WTF are you talking about?

    • puts my quarter atop the arcade cabinet, next in line.

    • MrUnknown

      What?

    • super_gt

      Drive some singleseaters in Assetto corsa,rFactor2,Live for Speed,Game stock car2014 and
      you’ll know what I mean.

    • Croatian_STIG

      The FGT is one of my favorite cars in GT! I wonder why nobody hosts “Gran Prix” races online…
      :/

    • MrUnknown

      Still a pointless afirmation, sup…

    • Mini Stiggy

      Why do you even play this game if all you ever do is complain?

    • Croation_STIG…we do..

    • Stiggy has a point there.

  14. Brunskill777

    Are you given the FGT to do the event in, or do you have to own it? I was just wondering because I don’t own one because at no point during the whole offline career did I require one.

    • HarryWS

      Unfortunately you have to buy one, I was reluctant to!

  15. TomBrady

    Nice. Happy to see the FGT. Too bad it’s on Silverstone. I’ve never liked that track, and therefore I’m still not good at it. Not that practice would make a different. It’s the type of track I hate. Completely flat, boring, awkardly shaped turns. Plus that one turn I hate, it used to be turn 1 before they moved the start finish line. Hate that turn.

    Still, I keep coming back for seasonal events. PD has got better with them IMO GT5’s got boring fast for me but these are always fun. The vastly superior physics could be part of it though. And the superb lighting

    • watchclockgit

      I felt the same about silverstone for along time, but I decided if just do a full length gt3 practice on it to get used to the layout – since then it’s really grown on me

  16. my FGTC experience might help me here…..wheres immortal pilot!!!

    • TomBrady

      He’ll be #1 lol just like he was in every race I’ve been in with him

  17. R34EVO9

    I love how great this games turning out (says no one ever) new.gtr now we get the same paint for doing events. Pd Is getting more and more lazy

    • StigBelcherStyl

      PD has supplied us with some many great editions like the Senna Content, GT Vision Project, New customizable Wings, Customizable Brake Calipers, Redbulls Racetrack and the other added car content.

      Why people complain i don’t understand, I can see that GT has nissan as a major sponsor, we should look at this as a positive and not a negative, really anything that has been added after purchase you are not intitiled to. But pd has been providing this sevice to you for free. The game you paid for is what you are entitled to.

    • Streeto

      If you don’t understand, then you clearly didn’t want the course maker or community features, in which I’ll have to label you as a mad man.

    • Wait one minute you count those bs a$$ updates custom wings and printable brake calipers???? U serious I want adjustable front down force, caster, tire pressure, proper on track telemetry. Proper livery. And the senna content was the only good thing everything else doesn’t count. M4 useless vision cars useless so don’t try and tell me I should be happy with this. I payed full price so I expect a full game. Sorry about crap Grammer at work

  18. Minor typo I think Terronium, it says you win GT Old Generations 004-W for both drift trials?

    • Wait a second, I’m in the game right now, you do get the same paint chip for both TTs as well as both drift trials, and I already have both of them from past seasonals. That’s weird and disappointing, paint chips are the only reason I do these.

    • drag lab 101

      Exactly my point on my comment below..
      Idk why I want to say its -unbelievable-
      When it’s exactly what I’d expect at this point.
      Annoyed!

  19. kekke2000

    A new batch of aspec races? All i see is TTs and DTs. // “that guy”

  20. Mini Stiggy

    Ooooo. 2 great seasonals in a row(GT500 & FGT)

  21. drag lab 101

    I don’t want to gripe, but I’m going to just a lil.
    In terms of seasonal events..
    I wish the color prizes were a lil more interesting or worth while.
    Because in all honesty..
    It’s really the only thing driving me to do any of the seasonal.
    It’s not for the payout or the challenge.. That’s for sure.
    I mean..
    If I can’t get improvements in the game more often, larger payouts, dlc ect ect..
    Can someone at least work on more interesting paint chips as prizes?!
    End of gripe-
    Sorry..

    • I’ve said before, new and different rims would be a great prize and inscentive for the seasonal, but hey what do I know.

    • drag lab 101

      @vr6cas… I’d take that, or anything “new” or “different” at this point.
      It’s disappointing to say the least that these chips are just plain and regurgitated from Seasonal past.
      Ugh…..

  22. alienracing

    Looks good to me I can’t wait to try them out. Hopefully the FGT is a loaned car for this but if not oh well, it’ll be fun on Silverstone.

    • Mini Stiggy

      It isn’t.

    • StefanK

      @Mini Stiggy: … it isnt ? man thats not nice…

    • CraigHyphenO

      It only costs 2M credits… One completion of the RBX Standard and that’s over 2M.

    • StefanK

      I am not gonna buy a 2M car for a seasonal event…

      The event self is neven gonna pay it back:

      Gold: 200,000cr (with 200% bonus 400,000cr)

    • TRLWNC7396

      If you don’t have this car by now, you are good enough that getting that small amount of credits will take less than 9 races. That’s because you can enter a seasonal and (probably) win each time.

      Enjoy the fun! ;)
