    Used the Suzuki GSXR/4, Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package, and Ferrari Enzo to complete those challenges. It was a piece of cake :P

    AI is still sorry but it seems like the penalties are not active this time around. It took me a couple of tries but I beat this with a Speed 12.

      *sees kjb’s message, jumps on his PS3.* thanks!! :D

    Just wondering like that, are the AI any better on the expert-level race event? Do they still collide everywhere? Oh and are the penalties really touchy or is it just, y’know, if you mess around you’ll get what you get?

    Last expert events I kept getting rammed and all that so… just curious. I really don’t wanna miss this silver chrome.

    Hey Terronium-12 not sure if this is the right place to ask this but are you gonna start doing the weekly rewinds again I really enjoyed them and always looked forward to fridays

    GT5 Level 41

    In this order, BMW M4 Coupé, Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale ’11, and the Huayra 15th Anniversary Edition if your looking for an OP quick cash in.

    PD really do struggle with creativity when it comes to “Racing” content. Apart from each event having a different track and PP, it pretty much is the same. And worst, no tyre/fuel depletion as a result of such short races.

    At the end of the day, it’s still chase the rabbit format. And maybe qualifying as well and since the AI is still so bad, just make it challenging enough by selecting the AI cars 30-60PP or more than ours based on the entry requirements to compensate?

    That is why I only enjoy TT events (which the event and rankings should be permanently open at least for the life of the game in my opinion) and world rankings should have this built into Arcade TT mode in the first place.

    Wonder when they’ll have real racing seasonal events by placing real users against each other.

    I wouldnt put the game down if this was available it would put those 10+million cars a little bit closer to own as well.

    please give more strict criteria for car choice, like in GT5. Oh and LMP cars have got kinda boring from the beginning of the Expert Level Races.

    Keithdoom

    It’d be nice to have technical races like the S race at Willow but with lower PP cars. Not all advanced level drivers want to drive their ZR-1 or 458 to be in a challenging event. Nonetheless, thanks for the seasonal events.

    I must be an intermediate driver. I can always pass the beginer and intermediate races easy. I always struggle on the expert ones. Lol!

      I found the Mercedes vision gt to be good on Tokyo.

    KYD302

    Wanted… 10-15 laps at the nurburgring at 600pp or less for a 2,500,000 payout.

    • Aug. 22, 2:39pm
      Progress823

      +1 this ^. Why not a decent challenge with tyre/fuel depletion to add to the equation?

    No drift trials!! Yay!! :)

    • Aug. 22, 10:12am
      Scheer

      Surely you’ve spotted the pattern by now. You’ll be getting some more drift trials along with the next TTs. We just need some A-Spec endurance races with fuel, tyre wear and damage to make things a bit more interesting.

    I’m going to try my Boss302. Can’t remember what PP it’s at (high 500’s), but I’ve been tuning and tweeking her off and on. Would love to see how well it’ll do, but the long straight on R246 is going to kill me.

  15. Aug. 21, 3:24pm

    135,000cr for 5 laps on Tokyo with a 650pp car? That’s a pretty low payout. Could it indicate high-paying events coming in the near future?

    • Aug. 21, 5:59pm
      sheene76

      It’s 270,000 with full log in bonus…

    • Aug. 23, 2:28am
      MeanElf

      Not sure why you’d think a higher paying event will come soon. I can’t say I’ve ever seen that pattern before. It was only when PD raised the seasonal payouts later in GT5 did we consistently get more.

    Fare enjoyed the new seasonal races, Race 1 @ Motegi West used a BMW Z4, won by 0.072…. Race 2 @ Trial Mountain used a Nissan GTR- Black Edition, won by 5.800 and Race 3 @ Tokyo R246 used a Nissan Concept 2020 to win by 8.600.. Still too easy but enjoyed them anyway to earn a few credits

      Couldn’t you just take the money you earned from these races and buy the cars you want? What’s the point in having tons of money if your not going to spend on on cars or upgrades?

      First of all, who said it had to be at 650pp, it can be less. I did it with a 597pp 458… and their are a lot of cars tun-able to 630+

    • Aug. 21, 12:19pm
      Carandwrench

      I used my R35 Black Edition set right at 650pp and with those SS tires it felt like I was driving on snow, but I beat it fairly quickly.

    • Aug. 21, 1:18pm
      pitstop3343

      I happened to be in the NSX lm road car, tuned to 600pp from last week’s time trial, had no problems, did it on first try. My Gallardo is also very fast @ 600PP as well.

      I used ZZII tuned at 500 PP for the first 2 events (500 and 550 PP). Tuned it at 600 PP for the final event.

    Trial Mountain is so much fun using the X-Bow…

    • Aug. 21, 4:50am
      BrunetPaquet

      I’ll have to try that combination! The track is one of my all-time fave legacy circuits and the X-Bow is one really good open-wheel bomb of speed, especially for… I think it was 60k-70k for the street version and 120k’ish for the R version, right?

    • Aug. 22, 12:25am
      johof1234

      I did all 3 in the X-Bow.

  25. Aug. 21, 4:28am

    There are two circuits, one a super speedway oval and the track you’re driving. Also two small variations on Motegi.

  26. Aug. 21, 3:10am
    JKgo

    I like Motegi even though I never get a decent-ish time on it with non-race cars. Mainly because I’m a rubbish driver….
    BTW I don’t really understand why it’s called Twin Ring Motegi. Anyone got a clue?

    • Aug. 21, 4:29am
      MeanElf

      I think it might be the main course plus the oval – that’s the reason that comes to mind. It could also be seen as two ring circuits which combined, make the full track.

      Try the S2000 with gears set close together. It’s tight, but can be done.

    • Aug. 21, 9:04am
      JKgo

      Thanks mate I’ll try after I get home from work.

  27. Aug. 21, 2:35am
    Chunk88

    Cool. I wish they would add way more. Refuse to believe it takes much effort to put these together.

    Let’s have some championships and longer races please.

    Or just let me create me own events/championships where I get credits accordingly. Then I’m good to go for a lonnnnnng time. I would honestly take this over the track editor. A lot of good the track editor is going to be if we can’t do some cool races for $£ on them.

    • Aug. 21, 4:33am
      MeanElf

      GT5’s track editor could be used online for cash – trust me, it will have its uses when it arrives.

    • Aug. 21, 1:21pm
      pitstop3343

      How ’bout this…bring back the performance point bonus that they had in GT5? That code is already written. I remember doing the events in cars with over 100pp less than the events called for, and winning 2-3 million credits. You could buy a 20 mil car, and have it payed off in 1/2 and hour!

    • Aug. 23, 2:35am
      MeanElf

      Well, a slight exaggeration, but I do like the idea of the PP difference bonus coming back.

  28. Aug. 20, 11:31pm

    I have like 30,000Cr, so this would be a good chance to increase my in-game balance easily.

      Three words… Red Bull Standard $$$

    • Aug. 21, 1:16am
      RACECAR

      While I know you are likely not crazy about grinding, smskeeter23 has a point. And when you combine that with the login bonus fully maxed out, its an easy 2,000,000 a day and you do that every day, easily 10,000,000Cr a week.

    • Aug. 21, 1:57am
      Amac500

      Yeah the Red Bull Standard challenge was what’s up for a while after it was added, but now I’m so sick of it I just can’t stand it, even though it is a way to get 2 mil in 22 minutes.

    • Aug. 21, 2:53am
      Cu3e

      That 140k in 3 minutes at Motegi is my new favourite grinding method. Got a mil just by trying out my different 500PP tunes there.

      About Red Bulls… I hope I could press and hold that icon to make it wiggle and press a small x that appears in the corner of the icon to make it disappear. Never touching that stuff again.

    • Aug. 21, 8:09am
      Allek

      My grinding I do at Motegi too. Almost 3.000.000 an hour and way easier than RB Standard for those using DS3. I have 940 wins there already. And counting…

    • Aug. 21, 8:46am
      HuskyGT

      While I know the RB Standard event is way more profitable, I have to agree with Amac. I’m just… sick of it.

    • Aug. 21, 9:08am
      smskeeter23

      Ya me too honestly but the Silverstone race is so easy it’s hard to ignore. I may go back to the NASCAR grind at Motegi for a while though.

      I also found in the past though that you can literally do the LTW SSRX race with one hand on a DS3 while eating a sandwich lol!

    • Aug. 21, 9:34am

      HAHA! I’ve done that!

    • Aug. 21, 11:39am

      I have 30 million Cr, and I still only spend on low budget cars of around 30K with a couple of upgrades here and there.
