    The GT Sport in-person broadcasts were always something I enjoyed watching due to their high production quality*, even after I stopped playing the game (I got the Platinum and "checked out" essentially).

    Online broadcasts don't feel the same to me, but I am curious to see how they handle the presentation of this one since it's the big finale.



    *And the fact that GT Sport has the best replay/spectate cameras in the business.

    Is there a reason Suzuka hasn't been used at all?

    The license only allows PD to use Suzuka a limited amount of times and they've exhausted that in the daily races.

    That's an interesting one, do you have any links with more info?

    I'm aware from working on DiRT Rally 2.0 why some locations are/not chosen for esports but this is the first I've heard of a "usage limit".

    Clearly a joke.

    There's no way they're limiting the usage on any of the tracks in Japan. :D

    Definitely a joke my friend :)

    My sarcasm doesn't come across well online. Gets me into trouble fairly often.

    I noticed you're racing with your Turkish flag this year in Manufacturers - and there's another Turkish driver in the Toyota GR Supra GT Cup!

    Any thoughts on whether they will gamble with the pit lane infractions again?

    Also, any idea how long they delay the broadcasts or will this be pretty much race this weekend broadcast next?

    Well, the races were on December 5th and 6th, so... they'll delay it two weeks.

    Get as many people as you can together, set up a lobby, BB Raceway and karts.

    You can thank me later.

    The track selection for Manu doesn't look good for Subaru :nervous: But if there's a team that can punch above its weight, it's you guys :tup:

    Can't wait to see how everything goes.

    Ob paper only race 1 doesn't look very good for us as we lack the straight line speed to overtake or defend our position from.
    As for race 2 and 3 so many cars have a chance to win it and as we are talking about the manufacturers cup, everything can happen hehe.
    But thank you mate! We will definitely give it our best there to represent our favourite manufacturer well!

    Could we possibly see something from Jaguar during the broadcast?

    World Finals streams are coming.
    They are live streaming, not YouTube Premieres as Regional Finals.

    I know races are pre-recorded, but some big news like Jagaur VGT will be announced on live I think.
