GTPlanet on Track for the 2010 Racing Season

May 2nd, 2010 by Jordan

The 2010 racing season is kicking off around the world, and GTPlanet is proud to support the first GT Academy winner Lucas Ordoñez in this year’s GT4 European Cup and TKi Motorsport, competing in the NASA Pro Racing Northeast Series here in the United States. Both are off to a great start, with TKi having scored a podium finish in their first race. I’ll be sharing occasional updates about their progress, or you can easily monitor their updates with Facebook or Twitter at the links below. Good luck, guys!

    He probly knows our last names and urything. Especially if we tell him! Oh wait don’t tell him. That might be bad. It’s funny we doin dis through gtplanet and not ju textin. Cause you is my bestest buddy e’er. And we live like right across the river from each other. Like 3 miles. And Jordan is probably getting tired of getting notifications of this stupid crap we keep posting. Sorry Jordan. Please still be our buddy!! In Kaz we trust. So Jordan just curious, are you a fan of any other video games other than Gran Turismo? And have you beaten the final SLR At The Ring 1-lap battle on GT4? Cause if you have, I’m changing my slogan to: In Kaz and Jordan We Trust.

      Yeah that SLR 1-lap magic race is tough. Dude Cam I been uber beast-pwnin people on Red Dead Redemption. Pullin off headshots like a champ. Here’s what happened.

      Marston took hold for what he feared could be his last stand as U.S. Marshals closed in to bring him to justice. He waited for them near the back of the saloon as he loaded his last bullets into his revolver and they rode into town. A town that was now desolate, every person brought to their own bitter end by Marston’s gun. He put the last bullet in it’s place as the first U.S. Marshal kicked in the door. He stood, horrified at the lifelessness in the room, he saw not a living soul, not even Marston in the shadows. This moment of pause led the marshal to meet his fate as the sound of Marston’s gun echoed through the town. Another ran toward the door but didn’t even make it through before Marston’s bullet brought him down. The other Marshals stood outside, struck with fear, the fear of death. Four more Marshals stood outside as Marston counted the bullets left in his chamber. One. Two. Three. Four. The Marshals told Marston to come outside. He agreed. As he came out the door time seemed to stand still as Marston used his left hand to bring the hammer back again and again to fire four shots in rapid succession. The Marshals fell to the ground and Marston stood, alone. There was no movement, no sound, no feeling. He had never felt so alone.

    Haha I don’t know. I was just curious if you would reply. Great job on the website man. I don’t know where you get your information, but it’s much appreciated. I check this site on my iPhone about every 2 or 3 hours and am never disapointed.

      DUDE! CAM! It’s me Tom! I’m using my Bandit1 alias! I FOUND YOU! Jordan even responded!!! That’s awesome! Did you actually consider that Jordan wasn’t a “real person”? I seriously wish you would have reached out to me so we could have talked about this. Anyway, Jordan, I also check this website every 2 or 3 hours and I just want to say you do an awesome job on keeping everyone up to date on the latest Gran Turismo info! Keep it up!

    Jordan, Dont you think it’s weird that I would comment on this old and non-important posting? I do. I just wrote this hoping that I could get a response from you. Anything would be great. Even a smiley face :-) I just want to know if you’re a real person or not. Thanks man!

      Jordan

      Yes…what makes you think I’m not a “real person”?

    Wishful thinking…: Wouldn’t it be great if we were allowed to compete in real races for Everyone who “finishes” and complete GT5 the game with all the licenses in Gold or Platinum, and run the required time in each lap. ??? Only then will i say this is a valid real game ;)

      Yeah, that would be amazing!

    Haha, if you wanted the logo on the Nordschleife you have either commissioned one of our German members to do it or even gone there yourself! Then it would’ve made it in for sure!

    This is amazing. Reality and gaming are closer than ever. This is exactly what Kaz is talking about all the time. Passion for cars and racing. Even the fans join in on the real life part of Gran Turismo. I don’t think it will be long until we can find the GT Planet logo inside a Gran Turismo game.

      Getting the logo inside a GT game has always been a dream of mine, kekke. One day! (Hey, I’d even be happy with some graffiti on the Nordschleife!)

    Thats awesome Lucas will be getting good exposure in real racing series. I think he will represent some of us”bench racers” well.

    I noticed TKI Motorsports is racing in North America. Unfortunately for me, they are @ tracks not close enough for me to attend the race. I like the paint scheme of the Volvo they have entered. It’s reminiscent of the glory days of racing like the Gulf Ford GT40 and later the Gulf Porsche 917s. The 917 is probably my most desirable car to add in the GT series. It would be phenomenal to run that all out at the Lemans (Circuit de La Sarthe) circuit.

    I also noticed that TKI Motorsports will be visiting Watkins Glen…one of my most desired tracks to be added to GT5. With NASCAR being included and having Sonoma (Sears Point) already in the game….how cool would it be to have NASCAR’s other road coarse added?
