    It's the sectors of the map. The bar in the middle where the time bonus checkpoint is.
    Each color unlocks a section in the practice area.
    Blue is the First and next color is next section

    I would love if someone could watch my replay and tell me where i need to improve. I finally got a perfect lap in (no multjplier loss, jump and speed bonuses and othed than a few minor fishtails no and wrecks or major spins) and i only got14 passes and didnt pass or see any cars the last 2 checkpoints and i only got 820,796 score. I watched my replay and have no idea what else i can do to get more points. I feel like im carring all the speed i can without spinning out. PLEASE HELP IM LOST. Any help i would appreciate. Oh and abs 1 is my only aid turned on. I didnt even seriously try the nism one as I feel ill get the same result. I had absolutly zero problems getting gold on the first two.

    Now that someone mentioned the redbull, that is what the next update will include. The X2011 on sierra. Can hardly wait.

    This is one challenge I hope to see more of. Love this style of challenge. Let us grind though...

    If you don't encounter almost any car on your way, it's better for you to restart. In the harder levels, there are some places where there's a whole stack (especially in the tight hairpin in the blue part), so don't be frustrated, as long as you don't crash you should get gold.

    As your learning the track and adjusting to traffic. Your mistakes will occur less often as the session continues (persistence pays). When you eventually reduce the incidents to 1 or 2 per try then you know a perfect lap is close.

    The frequency of mistakes goes down proportional to the time you spend here. For me anyway...

    Hope they add more of these type challenges.

    Use the horn too. Don't know if it helps or not but I enjoy honking. Also leaves me satisfied with me honking.

    Since PSN is down I decided to sit down and do the Sierra laps. I'll never get those 2 hours back! :lol: PD has it so backwards (still), don't make us pass ungodly slow cars and not touch them, make it a real rally with staggered starts and just do what the pros do; try to beat the top (AI) time. How many days until PCars releases?

    I haven't even thought about the Sierra events in such a long time. A few days ago I clicked on them and realized I was only at 944,xxx points on the GTO event, so I re-ran that event and got my Gold score and free car. It was then that I realized I haven't even attempted the 4th round yet. Somehow I completely forgot about PD adding the 4th round with the Nissan GT-R Nismo. I didn't have time to try it though... Maybe I'll give it a run this weekend.

    Why is this not available in arcade mode? Why can we not run more than one lap in the practice mode?

    You can drive on La Sierra in Arcade Mode. As soon as you finish a complete lap it unlocks the course for you. Then you can go into Arcade Mode > Time Trial > Original Courses and it will be the second track on the top row, from the left.

    I think he just wanted to give precise instructions not meaning it's time trial only - you can have arcade races on Sierra.

    It's an LG 55lb5900

    1080p

    55 in, also comes in a 60

    bunch of hdmi inputs
    optical out

    120hz

    led backlit LCD


    It's a decent TV for the $$, very very slim and the LED backlight is bright. Blacks and dark colors are not it's strongest suit.

    I've been wondering the same thing, I thought maybe they had since I only started playing at the end of May. It's by far one of the best courses in any gran turismo imho...dynamic, well-thought-out, and fast.

    VW isn't a Golf if you're keeping score

    Not according to Volkswagen but what's the point arguing.
