    I guess our stupid contest laws in Canada prevented us from being included once again?

    Right now, I'd wish I was one year older, than I am. Well, I don't even think Danes'll be to participate - like always - anyway :grumpy:.

    Yay... 2000th post :gtpflag:.

    The awkward moment when you change your name to that of another previous contestant

    I want to look like the blonde girl.

    I'd say the TT will happen in July and all the national finals in August, then the race camp in September.

    As for the t500rs, good call on getting it for the academy, but get rid of it afterwards. Such a crap wheel. Input lag is horrendous for such an expensive product.

    It's something like that.

    Seriously annoying, I was ranked in the top 100 in the first GTA that ran, but gave up after I realized it was pointless for us.

    Go figure that a country which has produced some of the best racing drivers in history isn't allowed to take part.

    Put your house on it. Almost certainly will be this or the stock 370. The lap is long enough anyway.

    I'd say there'll be 4 weeks of challenges this time.
    1. Stowe
    2. International
    3. National
    4. Grand Prix

    This time, I'm going for a top 32 finish. Not finishing on day 2 like I did last year. I'm gonna get serious. I've also improved a lot since then. I'm hoping to give L_Harrison, the man who got into the US finals both times with a DS3, a run for his money. :sly:

    The track for the GT Academy 2011 qualifier took 2'16.xxx to complete a lap, and that was on Comfort Mediums(?) in the 370z, I don't think Silverstone will take that long on sport hards.

    Either way, I'm buzzing for this! Silverstone is one of my stronger tracks on Forza so hopefully it carries over to this.

    Fair enough mate. Yeah I've had a go at the latest one around Laguna Seca, sitting at 7th currently. Let's not get off topic here though and talk about GT's rival :sly:.

    Gold time is currently 2:26.500 so probably should be longer than GT Academy 2011 lap time wise. The car seems to be a lot harder to drive though than in GT5.

    Yeah you're probably right, I was thinking of the old layout of Silverstone.:yuck: Will be interesting to see the difference in physics from the two games.

    That'll make us two. I'm sick of seeing other countries get a chance and not us.

    Gilles Villeneuve represent!
