    How about trying to max out the A-Spec points in the Speedster Cup? :ouch: Might not count, but deserves a mention.

    Whoops, I've been tree'd by @GTPorsche :dunce:

    You hit the nail on the head, that's exactly what I've been wondering for years when doing rally events in GT games. Any GT, rally is always the easiest part. I wonder if it has anything to do with how the A.I. drives off-road, they avoid any sliding at all. And when rallying - that's slower. That might be the reason why PD sets such low target times, they expect people to drive off-road just like on road - without sliding.

    I must say, the GT2 and 3 licenses I found pretty hard. The 8th rally license exam with the Evo 8 rally car on GT3 @ Tahiti was pain staking trying to clear hairpins.

    GT2 and GT3 licenses and GT5's Vettel challenge (before it was updated) stick out the most.

    1. Seattle Ford GT40 - GT2
    2. Monaco TS020 - GT3
    3. Mission 34 - SLR - GT4
    4. Nurburgring - X2010 - GT5
    5. Rome Circuit (IC-9) Alfa 156 - GT2
    6. Complex String (IA-8) Mine's R34 - GT3
    7. Some license with the R390 GT1 @ Laguna Seca's Corkscrew - GT2
    8. Any license variation of the NSX @ Apricot Hill's esses. It's been done a couple times

    I don't think the Senna events are nearly as hard as these were, but I think they're some of the most difficult events in GT6. The F3 one took me the longest.

    Several of those "old" GT5 licenses and special events were much harder with v1.01. When I started getting Golds on every event in GT6, right off the bat, I was disappointed.

    Vettel challenge on suzuka with ds3. Took me more than 50 hours to gold. Pure hell but I felt really great afterwards. The reward is still my profile pic here :)

    Any endurance race. As a guy with not much patience, completing the 24HR Le Mans was pure luck because my brother's friend came and helped. (Those 2 did the most of the race anyways. I did something like 30-60 mins)

    Mission 34, this must be a repressed memory because I forgot what its name was. But it was the hardest ... by miles ... I had almost the entire game beaten (~87%) before I beat that. It literally took me 6 months...

    Jump_Ace, below my post, sparked the name for me.

    1) Mission 34 in GT4, hardest there ever was, or will be, quote me on that ;)

    2) Formula Championship in GT5 (BEFORE PIT STOP SAVING)...had to do them all back to back to back coming in 2nd meant you had to re-do that race later. That was aggravating : /

    3) License Test A7 in GT3 The Camaro @ Seattle for the quick right hand turn. Still the only license test gold where I met the gold time and didn't beat it

    4) 97T @ Brands Hatch this car is all kinds of wrong and the tire indicator doesn't work for it, you spin without seeing any color change as you exit a turn, also aggravating :tdown:

    5) Aaand, I can't think of another one...people mentioned the Vettel challenges but I'd put a bunch of GT1 license tests before those.

    For me, golding the higher-level license tests in GT1, GT2 and GT3 are far far far far far far far more difficult than anything in GT4-6. That might have something to do with GT1-3 being the dualshock era for me and GT4 onwards being the wheel era.
    I would disagree. This one is cake as long as you don't go below 3rd gear. I cleared the gold time in this one by multiple seconds on the first try. And that's not a testament to my skill as I haven't golded any of the other GT3 S-license tests to this point.

    These are the first licences:

    For me, the hardest race was in GT4: Hyundai Tiburon at Autumn Ring for max A-spec.

    From GT6 to GT4

    Honorable Mention:
    GT5 Alfa Romeo 8C
    Not so much 'hard' but it really is one of the first times GT5 will require the driver to practice or use skill.

    GT5 Historic Racing Car Cup - before .CR was easy to get
    In A spec it is sorta hard without some money for a good car. In B-spec it was VERY hard ( or impossible ) without a 1970 Toyota 7.

    3. GT5 Grand Tour, Tuscan Night Race
    I think this was updated but MAN, if you don't have a bright TV not only is it a hard time to beat but you can't see.

    2. GT5 Vettle X challenge
    With a wheel it is hard to get even silver, with a DS3 it is a PAIN literally. If you want gold, get ready to kiss that day goodbye.

    And number 1

    1. GT4 mission 34
    I finally understood why they call it the green hell...

    Nothing in GT6 has come close the the glory days of GT past challenges. It amazes me when I hear there was harder challenges in older GT games than GT4. What happened?

    The RedBull Goodwood HillClimb is a fuhgeddaboudit event, as were the Red Bulls in GT5. The higher level cart races in GT6.

    To me S-5 licence in GT6 is a little bit harder than Brands Hatch Super Lap. Golded the first 3 with a DS3 but had to pull out the DFGT for Brands Hatch. It took me two 20 minute stints to get gold with DFGT. S-5 licence took me 1 hour.

    So the advice here is to just buy the Lotus for 3mil and move on?

    Totally agree. I've only played GT5 & 6, but this thing is the only one where I did not manage to get gold*
    Tried it again a couple of months ago and could only get silver (again).

    *apart for some drifting coffee breaks, which I don't even consider.... which is probably why I am still at 99% progress (after being at 102% before the 1.0? Update...)

    Mission #34 with the SLR at Nordschleife. I struggled to earn gold... And every time you failed, you had to wait on the grid for another 2 minutes before you were allowed to set-off again!

    ... But my least favourite by a long shot was that licence test on GT3 with the Camaro on Seattle (Does anyone remember which test that was?), where you had to turn the right hand bend after the jumps. It's the only licence test I've never earned gold for in any GT game. It drove me insane.

    What I meant was if the Lotus TT is such a pita to win should I just buy the car and grind like the wind to make it up?

    I would say for GT1 it's the Normal and Hyperspeed events for me.

    GT2 had the Laguna Seca Viper test and the Historic car cup. (That damn GT40:banghead:)

    GT3 had a pick and mix of tough tests and races,
    Special mention goes to the Skyline at Trail Mountain test for really grinding my gears. :mad:
    2hr enduros, one with stock cars, a whole championship with long races in stock cars, the Yaris/Vitz series at professional level and the FGT world championship. :ouch:

    GT4: let me get the obvious candidates out the way, driving missions 23 and 34. The Opel Speedster cup is one and the laps at the Green Hell in the 190e mercs is another.

    GT5 has the most obvious candidate for this, the Vettel X events.
    The Alfa at Eiger and the Lamborghini drive at night is another good set of choices and the RX7 seasonal at Tsukuba and the Historic cup get an honourable mention.

    GT5P had the F40 at Suzuka one lap magic.

    GT6 brought us the Goodwood Festival time trial in the prototype X2010 and as of the 30th of May, the time attacks in the Lotus 97T.

    To some and myself, these tests and races took our abilities and our patience and even our sanity to the limit.

    You only need to get silver, which is hard but doable. I'd say I'm an average gamer and it took me about half an hour to achieve silver for Brands.

    How about that Tajima time trial on Eiger? I tried my hardest and was 2 seconds off the gold time (no aids, no handbake trick).

    License test A-4 with the Toyota Altezza in GT2.

    The amount of delicacy needed while turning is absurd with the D-Pad. Not to mention that the car has terrible oversteer while braking, and was we all know, without special controllers you can't ease into braking.

    I regularly takes me longer to gold this one test then the rest of the tests for all the other licenses.

    The Formula GT championship in GT5 was bloody hard-I came second in it, but I really struggled to do that.

    The funny thing about the Speedster race is that all of the AI cars were tuned to a level higher than the player could possibly achieve himself.

    Mission 34 from GT4.

    1 bloody year.

    I was young, wasn't that good, but to do that blasted mission took over a year and learning the Ring off by heart. One of the best feelings I have ever felt when I finally completed it.

    The one at Infineon in GT4 drove me crazy too, just to get that lovely Toyota 7.

    Of course, Vettel Challenges, the Loeb Challenge, the Skyline Slipstreaming, Opel Speedster Races, drove me nuts too. But nothing compared to blood sweat and tears I put into the first two.
