    It's actually a live event! :scared: But yes, I've been told they will be taking all the necessary precautions to do it safely.

    Considering none of these people are sim-racers, the live stream should be... interesting. :lol:

    I was very excited to win some all-season tires (not a joke), but the contest is only in the states :banghead:. Looks like I'm driving on winters for another year :lol:.

    No clue who any of those people are but will be watching regardless. Always good to see people get into racing or bring others in.

    Oh mad CaptainSparklez is in this? I guess outside of MineCraft he does like his cars. Probably gonna root for him as he's the only one I instantly recognise. Should be a fun event! :D

    Cody Walker (and brother Caleb) stood in for Paul Walker on Fast and Furious 7 in some scenes (because he was... you know... dead).

    Yep, I met her at the GT World Tour in New York last year. She was another competitor in the Pro/Am race.

    And CaptainSparklez had me on as a guest for his GT Sport video when the game launched:



    I was in Italy for the GT Sport launch party and had to wake up at 2:00am to call in to the stream. It was an older hotel in Modena and the wifi was very spotty in the room. I was moving around furniture in the middle of the night, trying to find some place I could perch my laptop to get the strongest signal, and I had to be up again in just a few hours for the next day's events. :lol:
