    GordonS, you would have make it to the top 20 in Sweden/Norway :)

    Even my 1.21.8xx time would have been enough... :crazy:

    :idea:It's quite clear that the countries with less population has poorer times due to less competition! Like in No(r)way with 4.5mill ppl! and a few hundred racers compared to Uk's 50mill ppl and several thousand racers! Most ppl on the Norwegian leaderboards set there times last month! Due to summer holiday!

    Stop whining about i could make it here and there! You cant! You dont live there! And ultimately it comes down to who is the best racecar driver! Not best in GT5P.......

    Vicheous,
    sorry about the whining :dopey:

    I think there was some differences about promoting this competition in different countries. I've saw couple of GT Academy adds in two or three gaming sites in Finland. But that's about it.

    I didn't see any adverts until about a week or two after I started the Academy and I started it a few weeks late.

    Oh wait a sec..
    I was born in Sweden! So, if my parents, including me, wouldn't have moved to Finland (a couple of dozen of years ago), I would be a real race driver!!!????

    Well.. PD, give us the Nordschleife so I can get over this. :ouch:

    Hold on, let me guess...

    ...Snake and his brother?

    Edit:

    Next thing we will hear is that France will have 3 drivers going to Silverstone

    Sorry, not having a dig, it's just that this tends to happen more often than not.

    Yes, that's the ones. Look out guys, they are very good


    Edit:
    Ah, that's it, I remember now. They are Carter and Lucky.


    Edit again:
    I believe there is another brother who is also handy on the track.

    I'm quite pleased with my camera dodging skills. Stealth was the order of the day. :lol:
