    20 min timed race at Apricot Hill... options don't seem that dfferent to GT5 B-Spec.

    Google Translate:

    The B-Spec mode in which an AI driver can take over for the player who was introduced in all racing events in career mode. You can use the B-Spec mode for races where you find it difficult the qualifications, for example at the longer endurance races, or if you just enjoy as a spectator a race. You can select B-Spec from the Quick Menu, which will be shown before the start of a race event in career mode.

    Needs a translate, I can't read any German or French :lol:

    Although judging from the pics, this can't be it. Did we really wait over a year to basically get GT5's B-Spec mode again???

    All I see new are the options of overtaking, slipstreaming, etc.

    Both leaks are very strange, my bet is that we will get 1.16 this night/tomorrow.

    Edit: and from french site.

    The German site also says "new" next to the driving suits and helmets.

    Edit: on the French site the "new" sign is with paints, right after the driving suits, probably a mistake on the German site.

    Hate B-spec but finally PD are finishing up with GT6 before the May/E3 expected GT7 announcment time.

    When have PD been at E3? They weren't last year. They normally announce their games at events like the 15th Anniversary when they announced GT6.

    GT5 was present at every game show. They didn't do that for GT6 as Sony was focussing on PS4.

    Starting to think there was going to be a planed a post mortem, with these updates, definitely breaths back new life back into the game, after the absence of any release at the end of the year, I resigned myself that PD had decided to move onto GT7.

    To me the interesting part about B-spec being introduced is the chance (albeit small) of a possible AI enhancements.

    I'm glad they are finally getting to this but really it is far to late to be of any use to most of us unless they add additional, longer races at the same time. Would have been nice to have had in Jan 2014 back when I was still trying to get credits to buy cars, now pretty much pointless.

    Not just Endurance, but that's when it's most useful

    From the GT nl website

    I have no idea what that says though :lol:

    Looks like it's the GT4 system of having the option to use Bob in a race instead of GT5's separate modes. I approve. :tup:

    boring spec

    a mode where you get to watch, that's right watch, the woefully inadequate AI (otherwise known as BOB) race your car. you get to tell BOB what to do -- which he will ignore -- and you will yell obscenities at BOB.

    Glad to see B-Spec Bob make his highly anticipated return to the racing circuits.
