    Hopefully. Would make an ND MX-5 look real cool, with a Super Taikyu livery and branded sidewalks. :)

    Considering some race cars are in the N class levels, I'd hope so too. Thinking about classic race cars and the newly added Miata

    I thought this was going to be more like an interactive festival in which you could do some game testing.
    From the looks of it, it just looks like your typical live audience tv series.

    It was. From Jordan’s pic, the racers would be behind him. There was a lounge area with tables and chairs for staff (and media?)

    Not trying to come across as a demanding and impatient fool, but how come no one has shared info or pictures of all the new cars? We pretty much know what the S2000 and Corolla Levin are by now, but could anyone in New York please share more info on the rest?

    Is the Mitsubishi GTO the Twin Turbo?
    Is the Impreza WRX STi sedan or coupe? Special edition?
    Is the Silvia S13 the same K's Dia Selection that was a high quality model GT6?

    Just model years and versions...

    I'll be heading to New York tomorrow to spectate the Nations events. Hope to see some "Planeteers" there! Would like to meet fellow racer @Wardez in particular. :gtpflag:

    I'll be wearing my Haas F1 cap and shirt for those interested.

    Maybe we'll get more tomorrow, but I can't guarantee if that will happen.

    Now that I know there won't be much issue with having too many people to get in, I'm gonna go tomorrow and take my time. Probably get into the city around 11 or so. White Le Mans shirt and a white Senna hat. I have a Ferrari hat but it's a little big on me and I don't wanna look like a fool considering how bad they're doing this year in Formula 1 :D

    Car needs more power. It can be successful depending on the track but overall it's pretty lack luster. Then again I didn't see Ferrari at all so there are worse cars I guess.

    Quite a few automakers were absent, but I think that also could partially due to there being a limit on how many of the total automakers can progress in the FIAGTCs. Other absent automakers seemed to include McLaren, Lamborghini, Chevrolet, Citroen, Peugeot, Honda, and Nissan.

    EDIT: Also Renault.

    Maybe, but I'm not sure what the hold up is. At past events Brand Central updates emerged quickly. I suppose everyone is too busy testing Spa, forgetting everything else in the process. :lol:

    These races should just be real world makes. Since there are small fields of cars for these events, it would make sense. I understand Toyota would be quite upset, but they need to make a real world GT3 car and get with that program. ;)

    Loved meeting everyone! I'll be there again in about an hour, can't wait to meet more Planeteers (I guess that's what we are now).

    Has anyone had an issue with the DLC code they handed out at the event? I put it in, it said it was redeemed, but nothing downloaded and it doesn't show up in the game. I can't find any record of it being redeemed in my accounts.

    EDIT: I can find a record of it being redeemed, but still no download link or anything unlocked in the game. It does not show up in my list of Add-Ons

    Just a McLaren P1 GTR, but it's a car I don't actually have in the game yet so I figured I'd take it.
