    ranked in the 400’s …. Spa -> Rain -> no traction control-> F1……. doesn’t get better than that….. the traction control is very deceiving, if your having issues run without it…. Wish I had a steering wheel and pedals, I bet those peeps are enjoying it even more

      You’re right, I’m sure with steering wheel and pedals I could get gold in Spa.

    Wow all these people moaning about the f1 challenge its so easy beat the time by 2 seconds. No need the accelerate hat round corners. Go very slow.

    I can’t get gold in the time trial with the Ferrari at Spa, only silver. Using joystick I think get gold is impossible for me. But I never give up.

    managed to get ranked 667th in 2nd drift event after an hour of headaches

    Oh my gosh, the F1 event is so damn hard if your not into the F1 style. And it’s even harder in the rain. Geez!

      Good luck!

    What racing cars do you guys use for drift?
    I find that in regular drift you can get away with using pretty much anything if you’ve got the technique. But a lot of racing cars are just too twitchy for that, so I’ve been sticking to the drift cars. But they’re sort of boring, I want to branch out.
    I tried the Jaguar XJ13 which went okay, but it wasn’t ideal. What else could I use?

    Bit over the racing car drift events to be honest.

      The Citroen rally car got me gold

    This TT is going to be popular and good fun. PD got this one spot on in my opinion.

      Yep, great events. Controlling the merc at the limit on Sports Hard and the F1 car on 100% wet Spa

    F10 event is challenging.

    I wonder who’s going to win the F10 event?

    LOL who am I kidding, we all know Immortal Pilot will win as always

      Yeah, IP seems to thrive on the open wheel TTs. He’d be the stig of TTs if he showed the same talent in other types of cars.

      Glad to see those la Sarthe cheats gone. Those valid X2010 TTs are awesome to watch. I don’t remember my reflexes ever being that fast.

      Now, on to Spa. Hope I won’t need TC.

    To bad there’s no belgian F1 car.. Belgian track, car and myself.

    I’ll do the event, but to bad the counter stands on 20mil. i hope they lose the limit in GT6

    • Jun. 27, 6:11pm
      Nauraushaun

      Buy some damn cars then :P Do you have every car in the game? No? Start buying.
      I use the off-chance that I get to 20mil to buy the cars you can only buy when you have 20mil. Like the Jag, Ford and Ferrari 70s racing cars.

    Impossible to get a good time with a controller

    • Jun. 27, 3:00pm

      I’m .023 off gold at present using a controller – it’s challenging alright but exhilerating at the same time.

    Hello every1,

    It seems a good TT, but the F1 at SPA in the rain it’s very interesting, for me at least.
    I’ll give it a go as soon as i get home.

    C63: yes
    F10: no

    Because I hate F1 cars in GT5, simple as that.

    • Jun. 27, 10:27am
      infamousphil

      Purist?

    • Jun. 27, 10:31am
      Flagmo-T

      Well I agree, but I will put it in another way :O)

      I don’t hate the F10′ actually it’s great beautiful Car to drive, but I hate that there isn’t any other F1 cars to choose from, and therefore i dislike driving them, because it’s red all over the track..

      TbH’ It’s a joke to play and watch a whole line up with only Red ferrari’s, and so far from the real world of racing, that it’s laughable )

      Well!! I just hate being used by Money with a head’ arms and legs ..

    • Jun. 27, 10:35am

      A Purist is:
      Wiki says:
      A purist is one who desires that an item remain true to its essence and free from adulterating or diluting influences. The term may be used in almost any field, and can be applied either to the self or to others. Use of the term may be either pejorative or complementary, depending on the context. Because the appellation depends on subjective notions of what is “pure” as opposed to “adulterating” as applied to any particular item, conflict can arise both as to whether a person so labeled is actually a purist and as to whether that is desirable.

      LOL Phil I had to look it up to be sure about it’s true meaning LOL

    • Jun. 27, 12:13pm
      infamousphil

      Lol. I was simply trying understand his disdain for the F10. ‘Purist’ in this case would suggest that he may disagree with a formula car in GT, as I disagree with any car that has more than 2doors or weighs more than 2tons or 2000kgs. GT is a term that has been broadened over the years as more folk become involved.

      So, as I don’t complain about it, I don’t think these kinds of cars (neither F10 or C63) should be in the game. But the cars of GT have always been encyclopedic in nature.

    • Jun. 27, 2:47pm
      TomBrady

      The only issue with F1s in GT5 is you can’t change the degrees of rotation of your wheel to 360 degrees like the real F1s. Driving F1s with 900 degrees of steering is kind of stupid but it still works and the F1s are tons of fun and the most realistic F1 simulation on console by far. That doesn’t say much though

    • Jun. 27, 7:49pm
      Both Barrels

      Phil, I agree with your 2 ton rule, but I’m a bit shaken by your no 4 door rule. I personally think the Impreza Sedan looks better than the Coupe (except for the 22B). And what about the Lotus Carlton?! I’d be peed right off if it didn’t appear in every upcoming GT game. I love the C63 AMG too by the way.

    • Jun. 27, 8:36pm

      BMW 330…M5…Audi RS6…Holden Commodore…I love these cars. All 4 doors.

    Sweetness; I fell out of putting serious effort into the TT’s these past few rounds but these as well as the last couple have definitely caught my eye. :tup:

    I hope this update fixes my “4.45 bricked” PS3 tomorrow so I can do this!

    It’s been over a week without my PS3 and I’m missing some of my friends + games.

    F1 in the rain at Spa? Hell to the yes. When my PS3 arrives, I’m immediately getting on GT5 and doing that seasonal.

    Great photo driftinziggy – lighting is beautiful and the photo is very realistic. The C63 never looked so good.

    So, I guess that’s what the Ferrari F10 gift car is for. I don’t know PD. I’d like to think those who are serious about 5 would have purchased the car by now. I’ll give it a go, but at this point I’m more interested in what hacking or cheat your patronage will come up with this time.

      I have both Ferrari f1 cars. I was about to ask if people had to own it or buy it. At least everyone gets a little shot. Glad to say I bought mine before the race bonus and seasonals got put into the game :)

    Not bad. Hope my almost stock C63 get’s gold at least. Finally a car that I really enjoy driving and listening.

      The car is provided for you. You can’t use your own one.

      Ah, yes. I forgot about that. It’s been that way for a while. I haven’t been doing Seasonal events, other than Stars and Stripes.

      Both are pretty good. Its good to actually get an event on the dlc tracks.

      I like the TTs, for the most part. Despite the hack jobs and cheats.
