    Did last year specify the (not provisional)?

    Because a restricted license could be an automatic license, and depending on which state, a provisional license could be classed as unrestricted..

    Yes it did.

    "(d)hold a fully unrestricted (not provisional) and valid driving licence, with the appropriate category of vehicle (car) clearly indicated, issued by the relevant national driving licensing authority in the Entrant’s current country of permanent residency"

    Yeah and I know for a fact one of them had provisional because I Asked, the only way they can be under 20 with a Full license is if they got a New Zealand license(or another country)and transfered it over.

    Typically the online qualifiers tend to perform a little better at the national finals from what I have read, if I remember correctly all 6 of the race camp qualifiers in 2014 were top performers on the time trial leaderboard.

    Not too sure on this one...

    Should be soon. Might have to rethink the wording of that question though ;-)

    Yeah I agree. I guess online qualifiers tend to perform better mainly due to how tough and brutal the online qualifying rounds are both mentally and physically. The national finals require GT6 game performance against other finalists to advance into the next stages of the finals. I find that entrants in the online component have a better understanding of the games' physics mainly due to pushing the car's limits for online qualifying times to be in the top.

    Considering how well global athletes adapt, a local GTA graduate would be awesome. All the best to those that enter from Oz.

    I think after 11 they give you maximum points for fitness.

    In a way that would suck a little, if you were fit enough to go higher, just to be able to see where you are at compared to the others.

    Yes and no.

    The 6 guys who went to Silverstone deserved to go as they did the best overall and excelled in ALL areas. Doesn't matter if you win the gaming, if you can't drive a real car or talk to the media you won't make it through.

    The gaming though was the most important last year as they had eliminations straight up based solely on GT6 tests. So even if you are the fittest, fastest in a real car and loaded with charisma it doesn't matter.

    Mate I feel for ya. Keep working the contacts, with this 2015 competition it highlights how well you did last year which is a good thing for your prospects!

    I don't think any of them aren't eligible. I'm not sure about TRL_holl0, I've heard he's been to finals before. But I'm not sure.
