WISH YOU ALL THE BEST Y'ALL...
 
Hi all

Found out about GTplanet a long while ago - longtime casual lurker, never been a poster.

I'm from the UK and started playing racing games on the Commodore 64 with Pitstop 2 being my favourite. I mainly started playing GT with GT5 but played previous versions on my friends consoles. GT Sport was the one that really grabbed me - loved Circuit Experience. I aim to go to the Nordschliefe every year for a TF day and following the last one in 2022 I bought GT7 digitally as soon as I got back.

I have a Logitech G29 and playseat but as I don't have a dedicated space for sim racing I often play on pad.

I enjoy a wide range of games, Nintendo stuff, Souls games, SF6 and couch co-op games with the family.

Look forward to connecting with other members and hopefully getting some multiplayer in! Would be great to have some crazy engine swap action.
 
Good evening,

My name is Kasper. I’m Danish, but I’ve lived in Spain most of my life (U.S and U.K. too).

I’ve loved racing my whole life. My late father raced and won in the WEC in the 80’s, and I raced in the karting championships here in Spain.

Alas, all that is just not economically responsible so I’ve gone for a Logitech Pro setup in the living room, much to my wife’s dismay.

Anyway, hope to race against some of you soon as I try and figure this whole sim racing thing out.

Hi all,

I've visited the site casually in the past but I finally joined as I see this looks like a very comprehensive forum. I started to play driving SIMs way back (probably when gtplanet started) on and off (not hardcore) on PC in different eras plus GT5/6 on PS3. Correction: I started playing racing games before they were regarded as "SIMs". LOL

I currently have a 3-screen setup powered by RTX3060 and a 5-yr old PC (i5-9600k), playing AC, ACC, AMS2, and not-so-much RF2. Still using my G25 wheel/shifter/pedal setup since 2007. Besides driving SIMs, I play drone racing SIMs on PC as I am a sponsored drone racing pilot. Looking forward to linger in the Assetto Corsa sections and subsections. BTW, I'm surprised there's no sections for Automobilista/2.

Cheers

Hi there everyone! Hope you're all doing good

How I find out of GTPlanet? Well, I actually discovered it like 2 years ago but actually started to really come often for seeking for guides that would help me with GT5 licenses and GT7 Human Comedy missions (especially Lake Maggiore endurance race, took a whole year to complete)

I started playing racing game like 15ish years ago? I started playing as a gamer with 3 incredible masterpieces (NFS Most Wanted 2005, GT4 and dear old CMR3) but the first
actual game that included driving I played was Driver

I'm from Italy

Unluckily never had the money nor the place to buy a wheel setup but tried out lots of simulator when going to arcade game rooms and to some special events

I play a bit of everything, in fact lately I've been playing a lot on Starfield and the latest Like A Dragon games but still my focus remains on racing/driving games, cannot stay a day without at least booting up a GT or a FM or at least something like ETS2

Here I hope I'll find someone helping me fixing some issues with FM and FH5 and discuss about FM and GT7
I play mostly on pc but I also all PlayStations from the first to the 4 (I bought a PS3 just to finally play GT5 and 6 hahaha) and a XBOX 360, in fact I want to create my own collection of all gaming console, at least from the 90s to today
 
hello, I discovered GT Planet with great pleasure, I am passionate about motor sports, (whatever the number of wheels!) since my childhood, I am now 70 years old and this passion has not died down. Obviously the years related to my youth are those that interest me the most, but I am open to the modern world of "mechanical things", I practiced motorsport and motorcycling on the circuit, and this practice remains my best memories of a life of passion, thank you for welcoming me.
I forgot, I'm French, so please forgive any English mistakes I might make!

Hi there!

I just registered here right after, finally! having acquired my first wheel and foldable playseat, in which I hope I'll spent many, many hours driving GT7, ACC and other PS racing games. It's been a long and winding road due to family and space constraints, but I certainly enjoy all the learning and playing ahead of me.
I found GTPlanet on the net and by comments on other Spanish videogaming forums.
Really looking forward to the driving experience and community with other gamers!
Thanks!

Hi everyone, been lurking for a while, but I figured I might as well make an account at this point.

How did you find GTPlanet?
Probably stumbled upon the Assetto Corsa modding forum a long time ago.

Where are you from?
Belgium :)

When did you start playing racing games?
I'd say about 22~ years ago when GT3 was released

Do you play with a steering wheel? If so, what kind do you use?
I use a T300RS, but I've been playing with a controller for the last few months since my VR headset broke , so my sim rig isn't in a position I can actually use it right now 😂

What other games do you enjoy?
Mostly RPGs and stuff like that.

What are you most looking forward to doing in the community?
Reading the AC Mods thread.

  • I did a Google search about shifting gears to optimize torque in GT7.
  • I am from Charleston WV USA
  • I played Out Run on Sega Genesis in 1994 when I was 4 y/o!
  • I don't use a steering wheel but only because they are too expensive. My fiance says that we will get one after we get married in February though! I'm pumped!
  • I really like exploration/adventure games like Journey and Abzu etc.
  • Making friends and learning about cars and Gran Turismo!

Hi Everyone,
  • I found GTPlanet with a Google search.
  • I am from Utah, USA
  • I've been playing racing games my whole life, since excite bike on the NES. Started sim racers about 20 years ago, but really got into them over the past couple years
  • I do use a wheel. I race with a Fanatec CSL elite
  • Metal Gear Solid and The Last of Us and just about anything co-op
  • Looking for people to race with that aren't going to use my car to stop theirs, bounce off me on turns and run me off the road. I'd also really like tips or coaching to help me race faster, if that's available
