    Sure, why not. I know Sport Mode is the main focus but there should be more of a challenge offline.

    I know what you mean about the faster cars being less suitable for Autopolis. Having said that, I have done a couple of dozen laps in the Toyota TS050-Hybrid and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    One thing I don't do, primarily because I can't, it's drifting but I did several sideways laps in the new Toyota Supra. Great fun.

    Also, the Gr.2 and GT3 races are very easy. I am average at best but breezed through them.

    Finally succumbed to buying cars from PSN. With my track record of abysmal DWG and lack of hours to invest in the offline game, I might never get a McLaren F1 or Hamilton's Mercedes otherwise.

    The cost of the electricity used for that will probably add up to much more than a few cars purchased from PSN.

    Just play the game and do some of the more enjoyable races to earn your £$£$£.

    You're probably right but I don't want to think about it.

    Its in the article itself:

    "The team will compete across a range of virtual titles including iRacing, rFactor 2, DiRT Rally 2.0, Project Cars 2 and Gran Turismo."

    I’d ran out of monthly ‘free’ views.

    I do 10 minute Custom Races at every track. Starting from 20th, Super GT is really good with that set up. However, I applied the current Daily Race C settings to my race with cool results.

    I followed the AI using an RC F, as it was picking off cars each lap. Gets interesting trying to pass two '08 cars, cleanly, locked in a battle.

    I did catch and pass it, cleanly, before the end of the race. Finished 5th.

    I've just finished backing up some of my photos on my phone and came across a load taken at the Copper Box event way back in 2016, so I thought I would share.

    Was a great day, in particular as I got to meet @Jordan, @daan, Kaz and a good number of other GTP members (and we discovered the origin of a certain GT cat as well - with the last photo below being that very conversation).

    Is it just me, or does the Hyundai VGT (both versions) have a Michelin tire label that seemingly vanishes upon entering the livery editor and in races? It only seems to appear when viewing the car in Brand Central.

    I find Autopolis a great fit for Gr.2. When you get upto speed there are a couple of places where you can link two corners into one sweeping turn. It ends up flowing really well and is less busy & technical than it initially seems.

    Thanks for sharing all those photos and bringing back so many good memories, @Scaff. That was such a fun event! I hope they'll do more things open to the public like that in the future. We've never had so many GTPlanet members all in one place.

    It was a great event and good to see and meet so many members, and quite agree it would be amazing if they could do more events like this, ideally a tour to give as many people an opportunity to attend as possible.

    Thank you!

    The W08 is fun to slide around. Can't wait to be reunited with my wheel.

    Yeah, the grind can suck. Sport mode payouts are tiny and you have to grind offline against awful AI to get cars worth millions. I only just got the merc f1 car too.

    I bought one a while ago as well. It's nice to make it disappear and reappear, when I'm cleaning up my Garage.

    Yesterday my daily workout had the Shelby Daytona, mark 1 Ford gt40, and some other gr3 cars I have 10 of already.

    Of course I won the Gr3 that I have 10 of. :banghead:
