    I’m wondering if this is the ‘big’ update thats being hold back?

    I’m seriously about to do this in the 96 Elise rm. Now that we’re getting online races for the ones we care about, i see no reason for pd to include anymore ingame races.

    Say, since im b-specing Le mans(5 hours through), what cars do show up?

    I don’t like any of those tracks, I am not a big fan of the fictitious tracks only real life track is Tsukuba.

    Kaz should make the seasonal events available as online events that we could enter.

    On 5 lame tracks. While Monza, Nurburg, La Sarthe Daytona Road Course collect dust. game will remain in closet.

      Agree on track selection, trial mountain is decent and that’s it.

      Just 5 tracks, simply not enough! PD why avoid people to run their Supercars at the Northschleife, Monza, La Sarthe, Daytona, Indianapolis, Laguna Seca… ??? That’s LAME PD as always.

    Now I must say that is the best picture I have ever seen. Looks so perfect.

    Great work PD with another fantastic seasonal roundup! The A.I. actually put up a good fight with my cars. I’m hoping for NASCAR or a revised Like The Wind seasonal next.

    Muscle, Trucks, and K cars are done, now it’s supercars. Great! How about the Tuners? :D

    • May. 27, 7:42am

      I think PD are slowly working their way through the original A spec events…so hopefully the tuners might be next. :)

    nice, But i am still waiting to race LONG races whit tyre/fuel changes.

    And/or on tracks that usual don’t gest used. (like SS7, London, reversed tracks, Top Gear) or long races whit tracks that almost aren’t used i offline A-spec (Eiger Norwand short, Indiana road course, daytona road course, Autumn Ring, Côte d’Azur)

    Good seasonal… My Veyron was very happy destroying the competition in this one :)

    However, I’m still waiting for PD to give us a new race in Monte Carlo ¬¬

    What’s with the japenese tracks in a super car festival? Do they even have an legit super cars? It should be mostly European tracks, like Monza, Nurburg, and Madrid. Then throw in Laguna Seca and some where else.

    • May. 26, 5:11pm
      MoLieG

      Montecarlo… this seasonal would have been excellent with a race in Montecarlo… but it seems PD forgot they put the track in the game _-_

    I just wish they would give us some longer races, double or triple the laps.

    I prefer low PP races. But this will do as well!

    Mmmmmm, super cars. Not gonna be good for grinding though! Doh!

    • May. 26, 4:16pm
      Al

      Why wouldn’t a Supercar seasonal be good for grinding? The races don’t seem that long but pay lots. Are you worried about using up your supercars and needing to overhaul?

      To keep these seasonals interesting I usually don’t use my best car. I try to win it a few times with slower cars since they pay well even if you don’t get 1st. If I can’t win with a certain car I try one that is a little faster. I try to use just enough car to win it instead of one that is overkill.

    • May. 27, 2:46pm
      Al

      Grinding these events works great. 8 laps at Tsukuba in a winning car go by in under 8 minutes and pay $141k for $17,625/min. In A-spec events the most generous payout is High Speed Ring in Turbo Sports and it pays $12,000/min. Looks like I’ll be able to afford a F2007 faster than I thought.

    Sounds like fun!

    I wish I could run my bobs again :(

    Seems I can’t log in on any regularity to run the widget or from the website manually.

    I have enough cars in teh 700 PP range already though! :D

    Goody, can’t wait, I just love Tsukuba…again…with a super car (kind of like a Cobra on a go-kart track. Someone that works at PD, his Uncle must own Tsukuba or has a life-time membership. Maybe, KY was born in a Datsun in the parking lot outside of Tsukuba, that would explain a lot.

    Oh well, look on the bright side. Coulda’ been 25 laps at Tsukuba in a midget…

    Great seasonals! The AI was a challenge for me on this one. I’m looking forward to what the OCD will bring to our doorsteps.

      I don’t get it, if you don’t like the game anymore, why do you still come to GTPlanet?

      Go A-Way, then.

    I did one race, but I realized that they still won’t let you play it simulation style with tire wear on. So I’m going to pass on the seasonal events yet again.

    • May. 26, 1:49pm

      Tyre wear? The race is like 20 km long!

    • May. 26, 2:55pm

      Really. Why would you even play?

    Good news! If we can run anything up to 700 PP then I can see a ‘giant killer’ challenge coming on…

  42. May. 26, 5:37am
    S.Kobayashi

    What range of PP is the AI in? Can you do this in stock supercars?

    • May. 26, 7:44am

      You would be better off modifying the stock cars asthey might nit be powerful enuff

    I had a gut feeling a supercar event was coming :D

    Just finished all of them (sick day FTW!) and you get about $140,000ish per race. I did it with a Mclaren MP412C with 700hp, but you could do it with something a bit slower without too much hassle.

    Somebody knows how much you can earn per race?

    Now I can’t wait to get home from work. Makes a nice change that the first four comments are positive. Now I’ve just got to decide what car to run. Mclaren I think. Maybe if I win then it will bring mclaren luck at Monaco this weekend

    • May. 26, 3:49am

      This comment stinks! When is Jon gonna give us REAL comments, and not these stupid positive ones no one wants. And it should be longer. How about more detailed words? When is Jon going to update those? And more periods, need MORE periods, REAL periods, not just generic periods ported over from his last comment. AND WHY CAN’T WE CHANGE THE FONT? STUPID FONT CHIPS! AAAARRRRGGGH!. OMG, I HATE JON! I’m selling my site login info. This is crap.

      McLaren… nooooo, i’m hoping for a Renault upset (though its not going to happen). Too bad Kubica is done. My money is on RedBull, though; as long as Vettel bests Hamilton i will be happy with any result.
