    This is a thread series for the seasonal time trials that focuses on completing the challenges (i.e. beating the gold target times) with stock versions of the cars. This means that instead of maximizing your PP with upgrades and focusing on getting the fastest laps on the in-game leaderboard, you are attempting to complete the challenges with the bare minimum amount of 'car' and money-spent as is possible.

    With the new more open ended format means that part of the challenge will be finding a stock car that has the lowest PP or lowest price depending on your view. It is also difficult to predict which types of tires a car will come with before purchasing.

    Warning: Some of these challenges are getting to be extreme and should be approached with caution! :banghead:


    In order to participate your car must be stock.

    1) A stock car is essentially any car as it is when purchased from the dealership or won as a prize: it will have had no modifications, added parts, or adjustments done that affect how the car performs.
    2) No oil changes are permitted: if you have had an oil change you must wait until the effects of the HP boost have been removed by driving over 300 km.
    3) You must use the original tire type that came with the car, unless dirt or snow tires are required.
    4) No changes to any “Car Settings” are permitted: they must ALL be left at their default values. [Note: cars that come with Fully Customizable Suspension that were purchased or won prior to patch 1.11 must have the suspension settings restored to default in order to be updated with the new stock suspension settings.]
    5) No SRF or ASM is permitted: other “Driver Assists” are permitted.

    Basically, the ONLY changes you may make to a car include: painting the car and changing a car’s racing number. Any other changes means your car is not stock.


    Quasi-Stock Seasonal Time Trials #28:

    This group of seasonals cannot be completed stock: the Super GT / GT300 time trial is on 70% wet track and requires rain tires while the 400 PP event requires cars with CH tires (at this time I am unaware of any cars that come with CH tires.)

    Non-Racing & Tuned Cars Super Lap: target 1:15.000 - Tsukuba - 400PP - CH*

    Super GT/GT300 Super Lap: target 1:43.000 - Brands Hatch Grand Prix - 520PP - Heavy Wet**

    * For this challenge you may put CH tires on your car.
    ** For this challenge you may use Heavy Wet tires.


    The Stock Seasonal Spreadsheet:

    A few members have begun a leaderboard of sorts where individuals will be able to input their info into a public document. This is not so much a competition as a way to compare all sorts of data. At this point the data that is recorded for entries is as follows:

    PP - Lap Time - Car (try to include manufacturer) - Tires - Drive - Power - Weight

    Link to the GTP Stock Seasonal Spreadsheet:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kDEW2OWUxHfq9PTR4G4-HKXl3veLfq0sXhvwiPYMUGw/

    Notes about the Spreadsheet:
    Tabs will generally be ordered with the newest seasonal events at the left.
    Gold times are ordered based first on PP (lowest PP at the top), and then lap time.
    Bronze and Silver times are ordered based solely on lap time (fastest time at the top): these entries will be grayed out.
    If you are comfortable with entering your info please do so.
    Only create one entry per car for your best lap time for that car.
    To add an empty line: right click (PC) on a gray row number box and select add a row above or below.
    If you make a mistake or change something you did not mean to change hit undo once or a few times.

    I debated about whether to create a thread for this week and this is what I came up with. My results with a wheel and an automatic transmission:

    520PP Super GT / GT 300 at Brands Hatch Grand Prix:

    490PP – 1:42.729 – C-WEST RAZO SILVIA ’01 – HW – FR – 296hp – 1150kg

    I am extremely embarrassed by how long it took me to realize that this event had a wet track. I couldn’t figure out why my car was slipping so much. The initial pics show a dry track. The track didn’t look wet to me for some reason and even when spinning right out there was no visible water spray anywhere, because it is not visible in some views. :O

    This car is also the car with the lowest PP eligible for this event if I’m not mistaken, but this gold is a challenging one.


    400PP on CH at Tsukuba:

    373PP – 1:16.687 – Toyota 2000GT ’67 – CH – FR – 153hp – 1120kg
    375PP – 1:15.345 – Spoon CR-Z – CH – FF – 142hp – 1130kg
    380PP – 1:15.398 – Honda CIVIC SiR-II (EG) ’92 – CH – FF – 164hp – 1040kg
    382PP – 1:15.867 – Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4 T Sport ’09 – CH – FF – 152hp – 1145kg
    383PP – 1:14.951 – Mazda MX-5 Miata 1800 RS (NB, J) ’00 – CH – FR – 160hp – 1070kg

    Oh how I am sick of this track! :sick: I would think some driver out there might get gold with the Spoon CR-Z with enough practice.

    400PP on CH at Tsukuba:

    388PP - 1:13.942 - Renault R5 Turbo '80 - CH - MR - 159hp - 970kg

    387PP - 14.741 - BMW 202 Turbo '73 - CH - FR - 167hp - 1080kg

    383PP - 1:14.793 - Hyundai Tiburon GT '01 - CH - FF - 172hp - 1340kg

    @Hastatus I did wonder whether you were going to bother this week, but I'm glad you worked it out. You're not the only one to be fooled by the sunny weather. I went out on RH and wondered why the wheels were spinning all the way up the up the straight. I had the info display up though so I soon realised what was going on. I plodded on though and set a blistering two and a half minutes. Amazingly 200 people had gone even slower.

    I had a go in the Spoon and I'm sure someone can do it, maybe not me. That's a pretty good time you got.

    Gave a few cars a quick go at Tsukuba:

    357pp - 1'14.832 - Mazda MX-5 1600 NR-A (NR,J) '04 - CH - FR - 123bhp - 1050kg

    375pp - 1'14.299 – Spoon CR-Z – CH – FF – 142hp – 1130kg

    Golded with the Spoon on the first lap so only did 3 laps total, the Mazda took a few more than that.

    More times :dopey:

    371pp - 1'13.651 - MGF '97 - CH - MR - 142bhp - 1070kg
    368pp - 1'14.265 - BMW 120i '04 - CH - FR - 148bhp - 1335kg
    369pp - 1'14.586 - Peugeot 206 S16 '99 - CH - FF - 137bhp - 1080kg
    376pp - 1'14.945 - Abarth Grande Punto '09 - CH - FF - 152bhp - 1240kg

    The MG and BMW only had a couple laps each, both handle quite well on CH's but the MG is quite a handful! The Peugeot is very neutral until you push it hard and the Abarth was quite a tricky one to scrape gold in, damn wheelspin :crazy:

    391 PP - 1:14.308 - Mazda Roadster RS (NC) '07 - CH - FR - 164 hp - 1,100 kg.

    I'll try some others later. This is my IRL car - only '08.

    Edit: This one is a tail happy little dude on CH - at least for me.

    395 PP - 1:14.327 - Hommell Berlinetta R/S Coupe '99 - CH - MR - 163 hp - 950 kg.

    After trying to get the best out of a bunch of frankly hopeless cars the Spoon didn't seem too difficult. One car that did stand out as a possibility was the Nissan Fairlady 2000 (SR311) '68. I think it's beyond my ability but someone might be able to do it.

    I have to give you a big thumbs up on Punto. I made it to silver easy but that's pretty much where I stopped...

    I got a Spoon CR-Z so I could try it. Pretty much race though so should be an easy run...

    520PP Super GT / GT 300 at Brands Hatch Grand Prix:

    507PP – 1:38.244 – Cusco Dunlop Subaru Impreza '08 – HW – 4WD – 317hp – 1100kg

    Well it's a lot easier with some tread on your tyres, and 4WD helps too. You'd hardly know it was a wet track.
    I had a quick go in the C-WEST RAZO SILVIA but it's a bit of a pig in comparison. Didn't manage a clean lap. I reckon I'd have to really concentrate to get gold with it.

    Couple more for Tsukuba:

    375pp - 1'14.598 - Nissan Fairlady 2000 (SR311) '68 - CH - FR - 141bhp - 930kg

    382pp - 1'13.983 - Mitsubishi FTO GR '94 - CH - FF - 167bhp - 1150kg

    The Nissan is very close to the limit, despite its atrocious weight transfer I was able to wring a decent time out of it. The FTO actually handles quite well considering all that power on the front wheels.

    I had a feeling you'd do it in the Nissan. :tup:
    I've put the times into the spreadsheet. Fourteen different cars so far and I think there may be a few more contenders but probably in the higher PP range now, unless someone can do it in the Abarth 500.

    I gave the Abarth a try and managed a 15.234, there's room in my best sectors for a very low .1 or even a high .0, but that's the limit of what the car's going to give :crazy:

    One more to add to the list:

    382pp - 1'14.740 - Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4T Sport '09 - CH - FF - 152bhp - 1145kg

    For those who like videos, I uploaded a few of my laps:

    Mitsubishi FTO


    Nissan Fairlady


    Abarth Grande Punto

    ...and one more

    380PP – 1:14.836 – Honda CIVIC SiR-II (EG) ’92 – CH – FF – 164hp – 1040kg

    @mcsqueegy Valiant attempt in the Abarth 500. I thought it was borderline. I was about 1.5s off in it and I know a top-tier driver is one or two seconds faster than me on a one minute lap, but sometimes a car just hasn't got it in it.

    That's a good lap in the MiTo. :tup:

    Been trying out the Honda CR-Z α '10 for a new pp record of 356 and after 20 laps, frustratingly close... 1'15.072 with practically perfect sectors. I'm sure that Gold is possible but I may end up with grey hairs in the process. :lol:

    Edit: 1'15.037 now, if I can string 3 great sectors together I'll be in the 14s for sure!

    Third session and I finally managed gold!

    356PP - 1'14.981 - Honda CR-Z α '10 - CH - FF - 122bhp - 1130kg

    Video: (includes external and bumper cam)


    And another one to tear my hair out...

    354PP - 1'15.070 - Suzuki SWIFT Sport '05 - CH - FF - 123bhp - 1060kg

    Difference is, this one was a perfect lap. There's 0.007 to find in T3 and that's it :lol:

    Magnificent. I think the video deserves some cheesy trance music and references to the "world record lap".

    Spreadsheet updated.

    One more surprisingly fast car to add for Tsukuba:

    357PP - 1'14.776 - Peugeot 106 S16 '03 - CH - FF - 116bhp - 960kg

    Tried a few others in a similar PP range but nothing below a 15.5.
