Red Bull X2010 Prototype Featured in Latest Time & Drift Trials

June 12th, 2013 by Terronium-12

Well this is certainly different, I can’t remember the last time the Red Bull X2010 was featured in a Seasonal Event, if ever. That’s not the only thing you’ll be taking out in this week’s newest events because the Mazda Roadster and race car action are also in the cards.

  1. Sickwithit

    no thanks!

  2. TheEzekiel

    the worst seasonal event ever

  3. infamousphil

    LOL, the 0.00 replay reminds me of the old Muhammad Ali quick punch gag. Thought about canceling the “Best of Friends” Awards, but figured it wouldn’t be fair my friends efforts. So, hats off to those who put in the time. It took me an hour (19laps) to gold the X1 TT. Guess thats why PD has let the TT continue.

    PD should go in and disqualify the CHEAT times after closing the event though. Unless they are somehow giving thanks to those who take the time point out their glitch.

  4. candrews50

    hope they have option to completely turn off ghost in GT6

  5. erik1127

    Make sure you do the Mazda TT first. I did the Red Bull first and could not drive after that. LoL
    What really works is drive the Red Bull then do the Ferrari F1 seasonals, it’s like your going in slow motion. Easy

  6. metalcue

    A good seasonal would be a marque vs marque shootout seasonal, i.e. Countach vs 512BB, E60 M5 vs E55 AMG, Corvette Z06 vs Viper, etc.

  7. TheEzekiel

    racing cars on suzuka? really? same old boring s**t over and over again

  8. Lett them have the fun being on top of this event for a moment.

    Only thing i hope is they ban the account of those guy’s. Using this glitch on a event is cheating.

  9. febgo189

    I think that looking at the replays of the ‘fake’ times, i think that it is more of a glitch than a hack

  10. Quigz125

    Ok anyone else see a jerk on the top of the leader boards for this called TRUX_B with a time of 0:00.116 How do I report this guy for cheating because this is ridiculous. From Britain and the #2 spot has a realistic 2:11.783 I have zero tolerance for cheaters.

    • kekke2000

      Doesn’t look like cheating… looks more like a glitch 1:45 would be cheating

    • Quigz125

      he’s cheating if he is glitching for the top spot. he knows an unfair advantage and is using it against online leaderboards. just because he didn’t mod the game doesn’t mean he’s not cheating. he’s exploiting a flaw, that’s cheating. i know im never going to be on the top of the leaderboard or even close to it, but you would have to be one dumb MF to exploit that on a online leaderboard of PD.

    • Kenny8375

      The newest time for #1 is 0:00.033 which is 1/1000th of a second faster than the #2 time. Plus, the top 11 all have ridiculous times…

  11. From the official GT page:

    The online service of Gran Turismo 5 will undergo maintenance during the following hours:

    Start: 18/06/2013 04:00 BST
    Finish: 18/06/2013 06:00 BST

    During the maintenance, it will not be possible to connect to any of the online services.

    *Please note that the exact times of the maintenance may slightly vary.

  12. Well I have the Red Bull’s, I’m just not interested in using them, don’t find em fun, lol, so I’ll sit this one out

    • Both Barrels

      I’m with you on that one. However, the Miata TT is a good bit of fun.

  13. Rage9one

    nice to see the x2010 being used again

  14. doodlemonoply

    T-12, the X2010 was last featured in TT #24 at Monza back in November/December 2011. There was also that special TT event with the X2010 on Suzuka when Vettel won his 2nd consecutive championship.

    • Terronium-12

      Thanks for the heads-up!

    • swynder

      Indeed, that event payed big money and xp, PD also offered the Red Bull X2010 S. Vettel when he won his secound championship.

  15. tpark103

    It’s been for every since I’ve driven an X2010 this should be interesting.

  16. notStig

    I don’t know why it would be so helpful. The car already has loads of grip. It’s really hard to spin it unless you leave the track.

    I swear I don’t understand people sometimes. Always complainig about SRF and when a time trial that tests some skills people want it on. I think this time trial proves that the X1 is not easy to master.

  17. GTHEAD87

    Cant stand the red bull race cars. People use them to ruin lobbys all the time, i mean all the time. I’ll give it a bash but tbh I probs wont touch it. The other events I will, If I can find a roadster rs. Sold them due to havin 35 different models of mx5. Coulda got 30 wishlist cars.

  18. belzebutt

    Question about these time trials: you post a time, and it says you’re #5035 or whatever… out of how many?? How do you tell how well you did relative to how many people posted times?

    • smskeeter23

      Dont really know it doesnt say. This is another thing people have complained about.

    • turismoslayer

      I think if you go to the link on the pre-race screen, that should tell you how many results there are. Could be wrong though.

  19. 35资源网



    total waste of le mans weekend would have been awesome tt in any lmp car this sucks big time

  21. Niyologist

    I nearly mastered the driving for the X1 on Dualshock 3.

  22. Flagmo-T

    I really did liked the Overtake challenges – but we have only seen 1, and it seemed to me, that many Drvers actually liked that kind of change in the seasonals .. Hmm :o)

    Lol Anyways I’m all in Grid2 WSR mode on PS3, so I think i will give GT a rest until GT6 Demo comes out .. :P

    • The Prodigy

      to me the overtake challenge in my opinion was more of a promotion to the ft86,frs, and the brz. shame though that it wasnt comeup again. o well back to dust 514 for while till saturday

  23. eran0004

    SRF is always off in time trials.

  24. TomBrady

    Not driving the X1 though. Everytime I get used to the thing, it ruins my driving ability with other cars because handling is just so completely different. I don’t care to drive it with controller either, can’t stand racing games on controllers. Once you go wheel, you never go back

    • GTHEAD87

      Very true. Once id experienced forza with the wheel I never went back. No room to set it up now so the xbox fills with dust and not got the cash wor a logitec

    • Both Barrels

      +1 TomBrady. Can’t ever use a DS3 again. Haven’t since GT4 was new.

  25. TomBrady

    Oh no, I didn’t know the Formula GT TT was ending already. Damnit. I could’ve easily beat my time, wanted to get back to it just never got around to it. Sucks, I really want to beat a guy on my friends list. I know I never would’ve beaten the top guy on my friends list though, he was #1 overall

    • infamousphil

      I gift “best of friends” awards to my top three friends. It gives me a chance to spends credits on cars and get rid of helmets and uniforms l don’t use or like. Usually, 2nd and 3rd is where the fight is but this ‘HotChic’ is on top 99 % of the time. And she uses an automatic.

  26. WTFnews

    just enterd the t100 in the MX5 time trail, 1:05,391

  27. Yay, my brief moment on top 10 on the Mazda Roadster drift trial :P 23,401 points

  28. infamousphil

    Oh well. Might as well get it done. Only reason to drive the damn thang… X1. SRF may just come in handy. Doubt it though.

    • smskeeter23

      Ha! And go figure… this time SRF is forced OFF!

      The one time it could’ve saved a lot of people lol

    • infamousphil

      Lol! And no celebratory cheers!? Can PD please anyone!?

    • eran0004

      SRF is always off in time trials.
      It’s only on in seasonal A-spec events.

    • infamousphil

      Where have you been, Eran?

    • Pit Crew

      ^ Well eran is right, SRF is always off in Time Trials. Only Forced on in the “Chase the Rabbit” Seasonal ASpec Race. Thats been the Formula for TTs since the beginning if not mistaken.

  29. racingchamp30

    Did a 2:29.720 for the X2010 seasonal event, 274th place with a dual shock 3, was hard as ever to get gold using the analog stick.

    • RaceReady

      No joke there man. Those corners where harder than I thought. -_-

    • Halcyon925

      I was about to get around 2:22.00, but that dang sand before the finish/starting line got me. I spun out, and crashed instead. And I agree with you guys about using the DualShock 3.

    • Lionheart2113

      Got a 2:26.9 using d-pads/automatic…took me about 15 tries, good thing too, my eyes were sore from not blinking!

    • Progress823

      2:28.007 with one spin out at Indianapolis, luckily I kept her on the track so no voided lap. Good enough for 907th at present, I am not running this again….

    • notStig

      I managed a 2:18 with DS3. It took me some time because I kept going off the track. Perhaps I could do a bit better, but it requires a lot of concentration.

  30. RaceReady

    Not that bad actually. Golded it in 250th place. Lol. Thats a big accomplishment for me. :P

  31. smskeeter23

    As much as I hate that God awful thing I managed to talk myself into doing it and managed a high of 86th… for now. Golded both of these in about 10min.Pretty easy pickup this week.

  32. HAHA! Not doing these. I’m not embarrassed to admit I can’t control that thing.

    And why does it have gold hubcaps?

    • StaticVariable

      Right there with you, Husky. My older reflexes can’t handle the X2010. Ha ha!

    • infamousphil

      Have you tried adjusting the “Steering Response?” It helps a little, but only just a little. Maybe I’ll try my cheap lap mounted steering wheel.

    • HuskyGT

      I’ve done every possible tune in this car, from adjusting the steering sensibility to other things that people suggest. I think I don’t have the patience to learn how to control this thing. I just want to sit down, relax and enjoy the game :)

      The only way I somewhat enjoy this car is by lowering the power to the minimum and putting some Racing Hards in it. Even with that, the fan thing is what I think makes this car so impossible to drive.

  33. Would have been better with the LM* rather than the X’s.

    • infamousphil

      That, of course would make sense. But we’re talking PD productions here. Where nothing makes any sense. Funny thing is they haven’t even gotten around to classifying the Group C, GT1, GTS and LMP classes properly. As if willie nillie is a cool way to go. Which is snot. Think they’ll do the right thing in GT6?

  34. Nato_777

    Nooooooooooo, I hate driving the X’s – guess I’ll see how badly I can do though. lol

  35. The funny thing is it seems like they must be running out of ideas, but the funny thing is there is so much more they could be doing with seasonals. Scraping the bottom of the barrel huh pd. lol.

  36. japlkofk69

    12 year old’s be like:

    • BayneHamlin1121

      That sounded like a joke made by a 12 year old. :P *’would be like’

  37. JeremiahTB

    Fantasy Action…bringing the game back to video game. Doing this one fo sho.

  38. DCybertron

    The title seriously made me think I had to drift the x1.

    • Right there with ya! Thank god it’s not happening tho

    • Quakebass

      I actually haven’t tried to do that…

      I think I’m going to now, just for kicks…

    • infamousphil

      Actually thought that was a good idea. Until l remembered that l don’t like to do crazy, silly sh.. with my whips. I do that enough accidentally.

  39. Firecracker

    Come on now can’t PD come up with something new and better?

  40. GT5fanforlife

    No way PD I’am not doing this Redbull Events it’s too touching for me to drive with a dualshock 3. I would do is drift trail events anyway.

  41. lldantell

    X1,circuit de la Sarthe,time trial,money= heaven to me

    • ScotteDawg

      What do you need the Cr. for? Every month I’m buying a F1 Ferrari to take my Cr. down – on my three accounts!

      Seriously, what do you need to buy that you don’t already have?

    • infamousphil

      Time for a fourth account? ;)

    • ScotteDawg

      Ain’t nobody got time for a 4th account…! :(

  42. Wow, didn’t see this coming.
