    With a really good joystick (a close clone of one of an xbox 360), i done a 9:15:145; maybe i can go a little under (some seconds, making every single corner perfectly), but the best leaderboard time of 1:46:xx it’s really amazing (34 secs under the gold, even if on a really long circuit; it’s about 7 secs in a 5 km racetrack), like others very close to him; i can be sure that they are not cheating, since the car is given from PD… right?

      I’m always curious to do these power laps with the possibility to customize the setup (only suspensions, gears, LSD and, if present, aerodynamics), but it seems i’ll never have the chance…

      I wrote wrong: not 1:46:xx, but 8:46:xx… :D

    My group’s leaderboard has a 9:00.6 at Nurb. Well done dude.

    The Nurb is tough in that Lexus, not a great car at all, compared to many other rides in this game. That time challenge for 9:20s was an eye opener after finishing it in silver with not that many errors, but to ring masters, it will come naturally after some time with this car. It feels different from previous patch for sure.

    I”m lucky to get top 5000th in these none tune events that because I can’t do 2 laps streight.
    Tuned avents however! I’m touching top 100th and doing consecutive laps within 1/2 a second getting faster every other lap or so…
    No tuneing seasonal’s this week ..maybe next time on the redbull…great!

    I’m feeling as a kind of superman after doing 9:10 in the Nürburgring TT and reading the comments.

      Tied you this morning, at 896th

    I would’ve been mad if they’d offered the TS030 as a prize after dropping 2M on it a couple of days ago!

      Why, you can still sell it.

    If you get the Gold would you get the Car?

    • Jun. 20, 7:14am
      Psyfox_x3

      No, you don’t get the cars, but enough credits to buy the Lexus and a small part of the prize from the Toyota.

    Thank you Polyphony Digital.
    I really enjoyed this time trails, but i struggle with the time trail on Nürburing Nordschleife 24h, i manage to get my time down to 9:21.620 but i had two nasty wheelspin and lost all grip on the rear wheels, which almost trow me off track, i will try again and again today, in my opinion nothing beats the Nürburing Nordschleife.

    Really enjoyed the time trials this round of seasonal events. The Nurburgring and Sarthe are both very much my thing :D

    The Nurb TT is tough, 25 kilometers without going off track? That won’t happen…

      Ahh but it can, and when you do, it’s a great feeling.

      How do you get the orange stripes and the Gulf logo?

    The two TTs were hard. O.O Watch out people.

      Le Mans TT wasn’t!

      What is the gold time?

      3:52.000

      With electric boost on toyota that’s not quick at all

    • Jun. 19, 9:12pm
      Bom15

      It’s missing it’s 300hp electric motor. So it should be in the 800hp region. Not 500hp.

      I found both easy, plenty of time to mess it up and still get gold. The Toyota has the hybrid system ingame too, just the gearing that PD have on the TT doesn’t make the best of it.

    • Jun. 19, 11:30pm
      Amac500

      Well Le Mans wasn’t hard and I ran a. 9:17 on my first complete lap at the Ring, but they were fun!

    • Jun. 20, 12:08am

      @Bom15, the car does have a working hybrid system. The HP rating is from the IC engine only.

    • Jun. 20, 3:38am
      ToyGTone

      Well 1 lap at Nurburgring 24h is a bit hard But the Circuit de la Sarthe one’s aren’t hard.

    • Jun. 20, 6:19am
      Bom15

      @HSV – Really? Well they could show it’s full power to stop confusion. I mean don’t the other electric vehicles show how much power they have? But if it does have the motor on then well.. It really is slow. But then it was but for endurance and not outright speed.

    • Jun. 20, 6:20am

      Supposed to say built not but.

      Are you from Nuremberg? Or do you mean Nurburgring?

      That’s why I love GT6. The sounds may not be good, but it looks beautiful…

      Yeah, that sunrise is hard to beat. It’s absolutely beautiful. Good amount of cr. also off these 2 events!

      Very nice tie in with the racing weekend. Thanks PD good job!

    Hate how these one-lap TTs trash your lap if you go off, just do like the other normal TTs dammit! Also, the boundaries at Le Mans are confusing.

    • Jun. 20, 3:54am
      Croatian_STIG

      They’re actually not Time Trials, they’re Challenges, as the time moves faster to make it night when you’re on one part of the track and day when you’re on the other part. Pretty cool.

    Literally had no idea that the drift trial was on 80’s Brands… lol

    Change the barriers and some buildings et voila

    • Jun. 19, 9:07pm
      watchclockgit

      At least they could change the rumble strip colour to yellow and orange, as it was in 80’s. That would take PD all of ten minutes.
