    I want to thank everyone again for their help. ABud for allowing me to assist him it the testing for his last two race series SuperGT and this year's GTPLMS #5. I learned a tremendous amount. Most of all, a little about what it takes to start a series. Let alone multiple ones. We all like the races but someone has to put them on. Hopefully we all (me included) can share the burden in the future. Austin343, on his multiple series and advice about it. AMG for allowing the use of his track images. Balang_479 for putting on last summers' TT series. Got me to dust off this game and actually try it out.

    To RacerPaul and Viperin.

    The races they have/had going on are a ton of fun and I encourage everyone to check them out.

    If I am correct. "It might be braking while being in full throttle." This, I'm guessing would give one an advantage. I am not able to do this as I use the right analog stick for both my accelerate and brake function. I hope that one of the more knowledgeable and better riders will be able to expand on this.

    One brownie point for being the first to stump the race organizer. Although as you all will find out. That's not too hard. :dunce: Only been playing this game since last summer and a real noob about bikes. My last one being a Schwinn. :)

    I haven't even been playing this game for a month, and I had no idea that BMW made bikes...

    Try that for noob.

    Well, cheat braking doesn't sound like something I do, and I don't see how it would be beneficial anyway.

    might I suggest Valencia for the last round? It was brand new to the series and if GTPSP is anything to go by, it'll be in GT5, as well.

    All are welcome. Nice to keep this game viable (for us) until PD decides if they are going to do a sequel. :idea: See links for other sites in post #1.

    Will try to get Preseason post up shortly to get riders a few more days racing. :cool:

    I'll enter, but I might not be able to race in all rounds of the series as I have had to start a new game as my previous save became corrupted.

    I hope to be able to race all rounds too, but since I have not unlocked all bikes yet, I may have to miss one... :(

    I seem to remember that in a post here somewhere that the game can be finished in about two weeks time if you put the pedal to the metal. Nice thing is that the tracks are the same except for Valencia and a few kinks thrown in. Made the learning curve much easier. One less thing to do.

    I will post what you need to do to get that week's bike and the next event's bike in posts from now on. :tup:
