    Apparently the GT Facebook page has released that they have added another mini-endurance event to the game. The 24 Minutes of Daytona...

    I wish it was 24 hours... but I will take it!

    Not on the PS3 right now... can anyone provide event details?

    Wow, was not expecting this. Wish it would've been in as a permanent update, but this is such a pleasant surprise so I still appreciate this.

    I'm guessing they added this to coincide with ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA Hopefully they do something similar for the Daytona 500 NASCAR race in February.

    Has the AI always been programmed to use the full pit exit on Daytona Road Course?

    Never been a endurance style event on this track in GT and I have't done a race long enough to have the AI pit to find out.

    The LM55 can't enter as it's 4WD. Only Two-Wheel-Drive cars are allowed to enter.

    Im not online on PS3 right now. So, id like to replicate this race in Single Player.

    How many cars on track?

    How many total laps?

    What is the Time Progression?

    905 rules. Pitted once, midway when I had to.

    Just need a car that brakes well, the rest is up to the driver.

    Just noticed that SRF is forced on. :mad: What a crock of :censored: :mad: They need to leave these driving aids as optional. I'd like to do these events but I don't like being forced to drive cars with unrealistic handling. :grumpy:

    That's disappointing. Was thinking of doing it multiple times for fun but I guess not if it's going to be that way.

    Same here. I did attempt this event but quit after just two laps because the handling just felt all wrong. I'll pass on this one unless I get really bored within the next two weeks. :yuck:

    R92 ftw. Easy 5 laps on mediums. Just limited power to 800hp for better control. Took 2nd pit stop with 5 mins left.

    905 with only one pit stop (albeit with some slowing down on the last lap to cross the finish line with 24:02 on the clock). I didn't realise the SRF was on, just felt like something was weird.
    It's not the most fun of races, but with 20+ days to go and 800k+ to win, this could be a way to make some money without having to drive the Red Bulls...

    Your absolutely true on that. :cheers:

    Time to stack up those cash for everyone to get a car they always wanted.

    I was really looking forward to this seasonal. Right up until I read SRF is fixed on.im a bit dissapointed now...Its like the feeling you get when you discover a huge amount of padding in a girls bra.
