After a successful trip to Barcelona (golding the CE) I saw that I hadn't golded the CE in Spa!

(Some Titans might look lame there...)

So I faced my personal problem zone at Trials Mountain and managed to finally gold the whole lap-CE! I am super happy and these two millions gave me enough to pass on the Sony car...

Today I test drove some european cars at the european sunday cup 500 and sold some other cars that were collecting dust in my garage.

The Alpine A110 '17 is (maybe) the nicest car in the 500pp range. Even in its stock form it is such a nice ride.

A 4 stars ticket gave me a Lamborghini GT3, which I consider a good gift. Maybe later today I'll put it to the test at Sardegna WTC800.

It was a lovely and relaxing GT7 day.

Simply awesome! I am in deed confident with my results but you have the last word on this. I did not mention that I tried the first sector of Nordschleife and failed miserably. That bad that I immediately quit... (I have no clou why I bought the DLC for ACC?!?)

Vielen Dank, my friend :)

No shame to have, the 1st one on the Nordschleife is one of the most hardest sectors. I've tried it hundreds of times before enter the yellow zone. Good luck, we all know you'll do it !!

I had a really busy weekend and still have more to finish up so I haven't posted anything in a couple of days. On Friday I did the WC and bought a couple of cars from UCD. Got 500k cr from a ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 🎫 I started working on TVR LM Edition livery for my Speed Sixes. 1st attempt was off but I forgot to save it. Earlier this morning I took the Maverick to the 700 pp race to see if I could get better mileage. I didn't. Had put twice but it worked in my favor because I didn't get caught by the rain. Started on my Speed Six livery again it looks much better but I need to tweak it a wee bit as the pics I saw I couldn't really see all of the stickers. Got 5k cr from a ⭐ ⭐⭐ 🎫

Posted a TT time in the Aleffa (bronze) 8% off target, im sure I have more time in the car a silver is doable; took a MX5 round Tokyo and won the Japanese FR challenge. Viper for the USA FR challenge and easy win.
 
Sunday night and I got time to do one more gaming session. I test drove the BMW M3 '03 and.... What I said earlier about the Alpine A110 '17 also applies here. The BMW is an amazing car at the 500pp range. I know there are newer M models in the game, but whenever I have to decide between the newer or the older version of a car I tend to pick up the latter one.

Also I put the Huracan GT3 to the test at Sardegna. Again another good surprise. That car is a lively one! Good drive!

Made two liveries for it.

A lovely GT7 day indeed.

I did the WTC700 at Le Mans twice - once in the Alpine A220 Race Car (very easy win) for the Cr., and then in a Suzuki Swift Gr.4 - stock except RM tyres and wets. I wasn't holding out much hope for a win with a stock Gr.4 but I made the right calls on tyres and won by a lap.

I found myself as the only car on track for the final lap, kind of silly how that happens but I'll take the win in any case.

So I just realised this weekend that in custom races, you can select your opponents from your garage - meaning if you own the car, you can legitimately set up any kind of grid you want. So this for me, being primarily after a sandbox-type experience where I can set up races that resemble the real thing, was a game-changer and has left me grinding through probably hundreds of ‘circuit experience’ challenges trying to earn enough credits to test this out and see if it works.

Long story short, I’ve purchased eight Super Formula cars and found liveries that represent eight of the actual teams on the grid. Then set up a 16 car field, two cars with the same livery each, and….yaaay it works, I have a realistic looking grid of SF cars and it’s made my weekend.

Next up, WEC. I’ll go 2016 season as that was THE classic year in my view. I need a Toyota, a Porsche and an Audi, then I need all the relevant GT3 cars like the Porsche, Ferrari, Ford GT, Corvette, are there any LMP2 cars I wonder….see you in about 50 million credits’ time.
 
I've been doing the 10 lap Le Mans race in hard difficulty. Easy win on medium tyres with the Jaguar Group C car but much more difficult with the Toyota GT-One, where I can get a second or third place but haven't been able to win. Going to have another go with another different strategy.
 
On the GTP account, after collecting 1,237,500 Cr. for my Nations Cup performance (silver in the metro area, bronze in the rest of the categories), I signed up for Chevrolet again and turned a few laps at Lake Maggiore in a rental Afeela. I don't like the track, and I don't like electric vehicles, but somehow the combo spoke to me as I set a 2:19.000 dead time. That got me an all-cash 4-star Wheel of Despair that gave the 2nd-low-showing/lowest-legal 30,000 Cr.

I see a lot of time at Spa on the Plus account in my immediate future as I had been neglecting it lately, and one of the two 20,000,000-Cr. unicorns I need just returned to Hagerty's. First, however, I overpowered the Weekly Challenges:
  • Tokyo Japanese FR Challenge in 3:06 with a stock Toyota FT-1
  • Trial Mountain American FR Challenge in 6:25 with a stock Chevrolet Corvette C7 ZR1
  • Lake Louise Special Event in 5:25 with a stock (other than snow tires) Lamborghini Urus
  • Suzuka Race of Turbo Sportscars in an essentially-dry 11:16 with a stock Ferrari F8 Tributo
  • Lake Maggiore WTC 800 in 19:53 with a stock Lexus SC430 GT500
The all-cash 4-star Wheel of Despair gave the middle fing...er...showing/lowest-legal 10,000 Cr., leaving me just under 5.4 million Cr. short.
 
I've been trying to test drive as many cars as I can in the game, and last night it was muscle cars' time.

I set up a custom race at Watskin Glen short course (4 laps, professional level, 45K as a reward) and started rolling the cars that I have.

The Shelby GT350 was by far the one I enjoyed the most, even in its stock form. The Pontiac Firebird was the most disapointing one. That car looks great but it is super slow. Maybe when it is tuned up I get a better impression.

When I have the chance to play again I'll re-run the Dodge cars and run the Corvettes.

A 6 stars ticket gave me 500K, and as my gaming passed over midnight I got another ticket (a 4 stars one) and the despicable wheel gave me a Pagani invitation.....

Which not only is the one I get the most (it is the 5th or 6th one I believe) but I already have an invitation for said brand currently active.... 🤨

Go figure.
 
Finally got a Ferrari invite! Not much of a collector but since it's so rare gonna grind for them all. Was able to buy the LaFerrari straight away, completed a bonus menu and won a RUF with the 5 star roulette. Thst was a dupe but it sells for almost 700k.

Nice!
 
I put a livery on the Lexus VGT and took it to Sardegna and I didn't like how it was driving but I didn't feel like tweaking it. I chose the F50 and took it to LeMans 700 pp race. Got 4 laps on FM6 not a lot of rain so it was a fun race for me. I haven't used it in awhile and forgot how fun it is to drive. Got 10k cr from ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 🎫
 
Today I kept test driving the muscle cars at Watskin Glen and I had a good surprise with the Corvettes.

The C1 (much more a sport than a muscle car) is a great drive. Sounds great, handles great, feels great in cockpit view. I can only imagine it using VR.

The C2 has been the rabbit in my custom races, it is the car the IA drives faster. And now I understand why. The thing is light as a feather and its gearbox works well enough for whatever HP it has.

The C3 I remember from my GTS days, I used to like it a lot there, and it is as good in GT7.

I ended up selling the Dodge cars (challenger, charger and super bee) and also the Pontiac Firebird. Those cars didn't click with me.

The Corvettes I guess will require light tuning work, because they are already good. Same it goes for the Shelby GT350, the Boss and the GTO the Judge. Those cars are keepers.

I'm still not sure what to do with the Chevelle though.

Been listening to a lot of Gorillaz lately, since most of their songs are uplifting/motivating. So...

Today I finally began the process of creating the much needed 2nd account. Is there a quick way to get to the Sport Mode on a new account.
I raced most of the day on the Daily race at Suzuka in the Super Formula cars followed by racing Volkswagens, WOW, was that ever frustrating. At one point there was a VW Beetle drafting a VW Microbus... really?
It sounds like I cant get to Sport Mode until level 9 on the Cafe?
 
On the GTP account, I redid the first 4 races at Willow Springs, taking way too long on the World Rally Challenge race:
  • American FR Challenge in 3:05 with a stock 2015 Ford Mustang GT
  • American Sunday Cup in 4:36 with the same Mustang
  • Pick-up Truck Race in 5:04 with a Toyota Tundra with a full-custom manual (non-racing) transmission but otherwise stock
  • World Rally Challenge in 13:47 with a stock Honda NSX Gr.B
That netted me a 4-star Wheel of Despair and the 2nd-low-showing/lowest-legal 30,000 Cr.

On the Plus account, I decided I didn't need to grind Spa, and instead sent the 2008 Nissan GT-R GT500 to Sardegna. The parts Wheel of Despair didn't help at all, puking up yet another stroke up S for the DeLorean.

I ran the ten laps of Autopolis wtc800 that's part 5/5 of the weekly, 500k for the completion, plus the win money, got a Megane safety car from the roulette which I've put a downloaded french gendarmerie livery.on.
 
I bought a 3rd Veyron ( got to have one be stock) Then I took my 700pp tuned Veyron to LeMans. Got a mostly dry race so I ended doing 7 laps I was able to just get 3 laps at FM6. I did change to FM1 on lap 7 though. I painted a C8 I won to look like one I saw the other day. I wish I had taken pic of the car so I could have gotten the color matched perfectly but I think I got close. Got 5k cr from a ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 🎫
 
I’ve been driving each car a minimum of 100 miles just to give them some time out of the garage. Some never see the light of day. I wish they’d add to the championships, they’re great for a variety of cars just to give them some drive time.
 
Came in 10th in a stock Toyota in the 10 lap race at Le Mans. One pitstop on lap 5 and I almost caught the 9th place NSX concept. Overall it wasn't a bad race.
 
My GT7 today, Fuji, super formula Honda on soft tyres two stints 38 seconds win, rain stayed away just. I also looked at the online Prius race at Laguna but didn't actually race. Opened a load of roulette tickets nothing spectacular despite two 6* and two 5* tickets.
 
On the GTP account, a couple of practice laps at Nurburgring in the factory Corvette Gr.3 got me a 6-star ticket. That got me the middle-showing/lowest-legal 500,000-Cr. prize. The Nations Cup race wasn't exactly good, but I managed a clean 7th out of it.

On the Plus account, I was fooled by the French weather at Sarthe in the Corvette Gr.4. I came down on lap 2 for intermediates, and by the time the rain really started to come on lap 4, the left-rear was nearly burned off. Still, I nursed that second set of intermediates the final 3 laps even as the track dried on laps 6 and 7 for the usual win. The 4-star Wheel of Despair was barely any help, giving the low-showing 30,000 Cr.
