The next generation of gaming is just over the horizon, with both of the main players in the next-generation console market winding up the hype and anticipation. With that in mind I am excited to announce the new Gran Turismo 7 forum opens today on GTPlanet.
GTPlanet is proud to host the largest forum dedicated to sim-racing hardware, and starting today, it’s about to get even better: we’re opening up our Trading Post forum to everyone, making it easy for all of our members to save (or make!) money on games and gear.
When I am asked what’s the best thing about GTPlanet, the answer is simple: it’s the people. Beyond the millions of posts on this site discussing racing games and cars, the GTPlanet Forums host a rich online community of people building real friendships around common interests.
As I mentioned in my post celebrating our 15th Anniversary yesterday, I’m frequently asked about the availability of GTPlanet apparel. So, to help celebrate the event, I have commissioned new custom t-shirts for our community from a local clothing company.
Fifteen years ago, I sat in front of the family computer, listened to that sound of a dial-up modem connecting to the Internet, and set out to tackle the seemingly impossible and exciting task of building my very own website: GTPlanet.

With over a quarter million registered users, GTPlanet can seem a little big. Going by 2012 numbers, it would actually rank 74th in terms of American cities, sitting between Buffalo NY and Fort Wayne IN. Like any big city, the land of GTPlanet has some standout citizens, those that have a reputation amongst the populace.
It’s been a huge year for the GTPlanet Endurance Series. With more than 70 teams, 187 participants, and 69 different winners after 2,187 racing man-hours, we’re wrapping things up with this year’s grand finale: a 24 hour race at Spa Francorchamps!
Since the GT6 “Track Path Editor” finally launched last week, GTPlanet users have been sharing thousands of their custom creations in our forums. It’s been difficult, though, to see who’s making the best tracks and how to download them for yourself – until now!
When we announced GTPlanet’s SRT Tomahawk X Challenge just over a month ago, it made one of GT6’s toughest Seasonal Events even more competitive, as hundreds of GTPlanet users sent in their lap times to win exclusive posters signed by the SRT design team – the same people who conceived one of the craziest Vision GT cars yet.
If you’ve had a go in any version of the SRT Tomahawk – the newest Vision GT concept car in Gran Turismo 6 – you know how crazy it is. The “X” model takes things to the furthest extreme, producing over 2,590hp with the use of “experimental technologies”.
