    Why move completely? Keep this thread but link it to the new SNAIL community Forum where we can just shoot the bull and have all our other stuff. This thread would continue on as a beacon of light to all GTPlanet members looking for a place to come and race ;)

    The other league I joined in early 2012 kept a presence on gtplanet but it became very quiet with nothing of interest being posted. I'm sure it did nothing to attract new drivers and resulted in the league losing more drivers than just me.

    I'm fairly sure we wouldn't be allowed to promote the new forum on this thread, or link to it.

    It would appear to be largely unnecessary but RW interrupted my timeline some. Without further ado,

    In the last paragraph, I did explicitly state that all scores will be totaled up and that the person who has scored the most points from the entire league will win the prize.

    I saw that @aliengamer25 signed up on March 23rd, so I assumed he had raced in at least one of the last two races of that season. That's what I get for assuming I guess, because upon further review, he didn't actually race until the beginning of the April season. I've updated the results post to correct my mistake.

    So down to a 1:03.90x good for top 200 in US. I saw what would of been a 1:03.6 so that is my target.

    @Doodle is close to running the magical 1:02.xxx, unbelievable! Hope you get to compete next year dude, you've always been on-top of the time sheets!

    Some advice for some of the lower division guys struggling to break 1:03.

    Turn 1: lift off before the white line at the end of pit row, make sure you're wide left before the turn I try to aim to be moving left before the the start finish line if you follow the dark marks on the road you should be on the ideal line. slowly tap your brakes to bring it down to around 70-72 mph flick your car carefully to clip the right hand apex get on the throttle early. Aim for an exit speed between 77-80 for the uphill, this will give you the most momentum coming I to turn two.

    Turn 2: brake at the shadow on the road slow the car down to around 40-44 mph lift off through out the corner to use the massive lift off over steer this car has and clip the apex, get back on the throttle gradually straightening out and trying to ride the rumble strip on the left upon exit.

    Turn 3: this one is a doosey! Try to position your car as far right as you can aim to touch the rumble strip and then tap the brakes and flick your car to the left maintaining 57-60 mph through the turn, you'll run wide but that's ok because of the exit runoff area which is pretty wide, make sure that as soon as you flick the car and have the nose pointed in the right direction you get in the throttle to maintain your momentum, exit speed should be 60 and increasing if you nail it.

    Turn 4-5-6: a tricky S section that requires almost no braking if done correctly, clip the 1st left hand apex, avoid the right hander. Move your car as far left as comfortable for you, and flick the to the right try to aim for the apex and maintain 52-54 mph through the turn. I find myself modulating the throttle in order to minimize understeer. Exit speed should be 57-60.

    I'm hitting 85mph by the start/finish line.


    I'm not the fastest driver here, but I thought I would provide some info for what worked for me to get into the 1:03s!

    Good luck everyone.

    I think @Doodle will get it easily. On the other hand I'm just getting ready to give up on GT Academy because I feel like I don't understand the game anymore or what because I run the same lines as the top racer do but yet I'm not getting those time as well which is making me feel like I can't do anything anymore, just never had any luck. Just wish I could get that chance but its highly doubtful especially from past events I tried for. Anyways run hard SNAILs.

    I'm really interesting in voting round 2 just for the fact that it has been on for 2 weeks. But the idea of driving the Nissan on Indianapolis gives me nightmares. So i vote on removing Round 3 Please. :)

    EDIT: Ignore! I was a little late.
