My purpose for signing in here diversify the cars I use as the credit grind all but lost me six months ago, A crazy wheelie pulling Fiat500 and a Porsche slaying MK1 VW Golf GTi have kinda made things a bit more fun than constantly lapping Sard

Hello everyone !
I discovered your site because I have been interested in car games since Grand Prix Legends (papyrus) in 1998. then there was R facor Live for Speed and now Assetto Corsa I played online at the time but not anymore because It’s taking up too much time from my life! I like making car and helmet skins, it must be said that I worked in illustration for a long time so it's something that I like to do.
I'm playing with Logitech G29 while waiting for better!

Hi everyone!
First of all, i am happy that site like this exists. I think i will spend much time in here.
So i found GTPlanet while i was looking for some racing leagues.
I am from Slovakia.
I started playing racing games when i was 5 years old. One of my first racing games was Gran Turismo 1. I still have the original disc with the Playstation 1.
I recently bought a racing wheel. It is the Thrustmaster T300 RS GT. The first one i bought lasted for 5 days and broke. So i hope the second one will last longer....
I enjoy all sorts of games. I play on Playstation 5, PC and sometimes Xbox one X too.
I hope that i will find some good racing tips, tunes and people that enjoy racing as much as i do :)
 
Hi I'm new here.
I discovered GT Planet by searching forums for rally games.
I am from the Czech Republic
I am a fan of rally sports and rally games.
I play EA WRC and Dirt Rally 2.0 on PC + Thrustmaster T500 RS.
I started playing since the release of the first Dirt Rally

Hello gtPlanet community,

We (my son and I) have been playing GT7 for a little under a year now and just joined PS+ about a week ago for online races in Sport mode. Just here to introduce myself and looking forward to learning from those that have much more experience than me. My PSN name is totmtb and my GT7 nickname is OnCloud911.

  • How did you find GTPlanet?
    • Web Search.
  • Where are you from?
    • Inland Northwest part of US.
  • When did you start playing racing games?
    • In the 80s as a kid, beginning with arcade games like "Out Run", "Super Off-Road", and then on Nintendo with R.C. Pro-Am.
  • Do you play with a steering wheel? If so, what kind do you use?
    • We use the Fanatec GT DD Pro with CSL Load Cell and McLaren GT3 wheel mounted to Trak Racer TR8 PRO frame.
  • What other games do you enjoy?
    • ACC, Fortnite, Ratchet & Clank, and many more. But most of my time is on GT7 now.
  • What are you most looking forward to doing in the community?
    • Learning about various car setups, racing and pit stop strategies from other members here.
 
  • I came across GT Planet as I was looking for tuning tips, and came across Praiano63's tuning guide. It is amazing that someone takes the time to tune all of these cars and post them for all to use!
  • Here representing Ohio
  • I started playing racing games in the 80's with Pole Position, but the original Gran Turismo was what really got me hooked. I have not raced online yet, I tend to like racing on my own against the AI, but I will have to test my skills online eventually.
  • Just got my first racing wheel, Thrustmaster T-GT 2. Currently have it mounted to an X Rocker Racing Rig to keep it semi-portable
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • I am looking forward to using the tunes available, and hope to find some like-minded, casual racers on here to bounce problem races off of.

Thanks for directing us to @praiano63 tuning guide! I didn't know that existed yet. BTW, I was also hesitant of online and really enjoyed the AI racing. Now that I have competed online a bit, I absolutely love it! The more even match-up makes it a very exciting, and when you're wheel-to-wheel with another clean racer through a series of corners, it's an absolute blast!

Hey guys and girls!

How did you find GTPlanet?
Found GT Planet by searching for solutions for some problems in game and hardware stuff.
Where are you from?
I am from Portugal.
When did you start playing racing games?
Back in the days I played with my good old Game Gear titles like out run, sonic drift or micro machines and since then I started to play racing stuff, but only now I became more into sim, or simcade, games.
Do you play with a steering wheel? If so, what kind do you use?
Started with a second handed T300 and a wheel stand and passed to a Playseat Challenge, but since the last month I upgraded all my stuff and run in a GT Omega Titan with a GT DD Pro and the Elite V2 pedals.
What other games do you enjoy?
Mostly sports games like Football Manager and FIFA (the good old one not this EAFC thing), but like some action and shooter games.
What are you most looking forward to doing in the community?
To improve my knowledge and to share experiences with the community.

Hello from Finland!

I started my console gaming in the nineties with the Gran Turismo series and have been on Xbox since FM6 but now returning to Sony platform and felt it's time to join the forums. I have known the forums for some time now, I originally found GTPlanet while searching a car list for some Gran turismo game and have been a reader since. I have found those lists greatly helpful when doing some pre-purchace game research, thank you for those.🙏

I have played with a controller since GT1 and would describe myself as a casual player who appreciates fair & fun racing.
 
Hey there my name is Kenny and this is my first time racing gt7 online.

  • Where are you from?
    • St. Louis MO

  • Do you play with a steering wheel? If so, what kind do you use?

    • Sports
  • What are you most looking forward to doing in the community? Racing against people that know how to race

Green Doggo here. Loves mainly Arcade Racers. Wasn't too interested in joining, but after seeing arcade racers being part of this site, despite being more Gran Turismo focused, well, why not? Plus, I just miss forum sites in general.
 
Hello. (TLDR, looking for a gt7 league)

Recently joined the world of Sim Racing this past December. Found the g29 on a big sale and decided to give gt7 a go. I don’t think I owned many racing games growing up. Maybe a couple, atv off road 2/3?? So this is my first proper adventure with a sim racing game. I hit collector 50 a couple weeks ago and noticed a nice sale on ps plus so I decided to finally try some online races. I got right in sport mode, race B's. I hit Driver B rating last night.

My reason for coming here, I’d be interested in exploring some leagues to try competitive racing against similar skilled opponents without the immense stress of being unfairly dive bombed in every single corner.

I found GT Planet while searching for some help with GT7 decals not working.

I'm from Brazil.

I started playing racing games with Super Monaco GP on Mega Drive.

I don't have a steering wheel, I play with my PS4 Dual Shock controller.

I like many different kinds of games, sports like Winning Eleven/PES, FIFA, F1 etc, RPG games like Pokemon and Digimon, Card Games like YuGiOh, fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, "unknown" games like Poy Poy 2 and also a few shooting games like Resident Evil series.

I'm looking for meeting new people whose passion lies on Gran Turismo series, learning more about the game, develop racing techniques, finding solution for some in-game problems, especially regarding SVG files and helping anyway I can.
