Jaguar XJR-9 Featured in Latest GT5 Time & Drift Trials

July 10th, 2013 by Terronium-12

The latest Seasonal Events are now available in Gran Turismo 5, featuring the Jaguar XJR-9 LM race car, Toyota 86 GT and both racing and non-racing cars alike. This week’s events step away from the more methodical approach the events took on two weeks ago and instead turn the focus back toward getting the most out of the car/tire combination.

There are no tuning restrictions across any of this week’s events but tires are restricted accordingly. This week’s challenges are as follows:

    I’m sad that the 500pp Online Seasonal at Trial Mountain will be the next to fall off the list. It’s one of my very favorites.

    Does this TT use the premium Jag XJR-9 or the standard one?

      The premium one.

    Ok then. That sure clears it up.

      Odd. I’m sure I clicked the “reply” button.

    I have a stupid question: What, exactly, was supposed to have made the last set of TTs and DTs any “more methodical” than any of the others and/or makes this batch any more about “getting the most out of the car/tire combination” than the last one? I cannot for the life of me see any difference between the last TT(other than people complaining about how difficult they somehow found the F10 event to be) and any of the other spec-car TTs, although to be fair I’ve never done a single Drift event so I can’t comment on those.

      Last week’s trial had an emphasis on driving in the rain whereas this week’s has an emphasis on getting comfortable with comfort hards. Completely different things.

      Drifting in GT ? wow I totally forgot it was there hehe – I haven’t done a single as well..
      I understand the interest for it, but it’s not for me to be honest!!

      I don’t drive these modes at all..
      Nascar
      Drifting
      Karting

      But I would love to drive
      Hillclimb ( 1st pikes peak, and then others )
      DTM
      WTTC
      British Rallycross
      F1 with a bunch of different F1 cars ..

      Dreams last forever they say :P

    I had a good race against the Jag XJR-9 in my Mazda 787B. It was awesome.

    The Jaguar is a beast to drive. It spins in 3rd gear so you have to be really easy on the accelerator. Also the record time does not use ABS. Very nice technique when braking into corners.

      But I think you’ll agree it’s a blast to drive! Definitely one of my favorite Group C cars. :)

      Record time isn’t using ABS? Lemme guess, Immortal Pilot? He was already the fastest F1 driver in Gt5 and keeps getting better. He’s 2nd place in GT Academy and he told me he wasn’t good at driving road cars, especially with sports tires.

      No, those updates come every week there’s a 5-race seasonal. Check back next week.

      There hasn’t been a 5 race seasinal since…

    I usually do pretty good on these, but the XJR-9 one is putting up a good fight. Very temperamental, that one.

    To be honest, I’d like to see another category on the drift trials besides “Racing Cars”. I think they’ve used that a little too often.

    This drift trial gives me a sudden hate for Rome’s second sector in drift trial… Just too straight of a turn for me.

    Sounds fun and easy. I need to buy some cars and I’m very low on credits. This should be an easy half a million.

      *I don’t do drift trials… that’s why I said half a million.
