    I've just heard that Thuggles is feeling somewhat left out since i_am_egg entered the scene and stole his thunder. He has therefore changed his PSN ID to i_am_thuggles and is hoping for a come back in the near future... ;)

    Cheers.

    I used a dvd recorder and scart lead. I can't play live through scart on my hdtv though, it just acts like a slide show and stretched out picture, shame the PS3 won't output both at the same time so I can record online races.

    UK top ten split times for those who might be interested...

    (just noticed my times are in there - obviously I'm not in the top ten!)

    The original is an Excel spreadsheet - pm me if you want a copy to compare your own splits...

    You could try to split the signal before going into your recorder.
    Make one splitway go directly into your tv, and just play while watching the TV signal.
    Then the other split signal connected to your recorder.

    I'm surprised you didn't make it with that lap, Ron. It looked well driven compared to your usual...

    Oh, and nice hat. :tup:

    Well done to everyone who got through, I would've loved to participate if Sky didn't decide to disconnect my broadband for 3 weeks :grumpy: .

    Those who make it to the next stage and onwards be sure to keep us all informed with your journey!

    Should we make universal top240, with all top20 drivers from each 12 countries? (Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) I can post a picture of Finland and a few countries can be found already from this thread.

    Could also include the information of auto / manual clutch for the top 20'ish in this World Rank list... :)

    What do you think?

    I got through in Norway and the lap times are nowhere near some other countries, the best in Norway is around 1.20.8 which isn't even good enough to get into top 20 in other countries. But it means I could make it through some I am not complaining

    Thanks, I made it fortunately, as I had some university issues that kept me away from home (and my ps3) so my lap is 4 weeks old. With the dfp it has been quite hard...those 30 thousandths from the 21st made me sweat until the end :dopey:
    However, I hope you are gonna make it into the national final with some help from the dqs :sly: and who knows...meeting at Silverstone? :idea: We'll see!
    Congratulations not only to the top20 (especially to the .5-6-7 guys with dfp), but also to everyone who made sub 21 times, it was a strange tt compared to what we used to do in common olr.

    Good luck to everyone, don't forget to keep this thread updated with some national final details, 'cause nothing seems to be decided down here in Italy.
    See ya!:tup:

    I did some reading a few days ago on just what this GT Academy is all about. I must say that for a guy that's in the "No PS3 and No GT5P Club," this is a very interesting concept. So you race for best times virtually before taking on a rela-life racing challenge. All I can say is that I wish all of you participants well. Do gtplanet.net proud if you're one of the participants who gets to advance to race in the 24 Hours of Dubai January of next year!
