    Getting pretty bored now. Thought we would have something more inventive by now.

  2. Jan. 27, 12:53am

    so far the V12 vantage is the most fun to drive :), i just love the sound of it and its tail happiness

  3. Jan. 26, 6:56pm

    Rally, rally, rally!!!! Why not a rally seasonal??!!!!!

    • Jan. 27, 3:17am

      Because this is GT, not Dirt 3.

    • Jan. 27, 6:16am

      @Witless76 You surely haven’t played Gran Turismo for long enough: GT4 did more for rally than Dirt3 ever willl.
      @Ezekiel76 I wish we had Pikes Peak in GT… Sceptics would no doubt love rally and the hillclimb discipline after that!

  4. Jan. 26, 3:52pm

    A time trial for the Toyota 86 GT. As soon as I buy a new one and make one oil change for it, it is above the limit for the trial. WTF?

    • Jan. 28, 6:11pm

      Turn the engine power down a bit then, surely.

  5. Jan. 26, 2:59pm

    Great TT!

    Next could be Nurb with similar settings.

  6. Jan. 26, 1:17pm

    How I wish I owned one in real life… This car is simply gorgeous! (I hope my Fiesta’s not reading this :-p)

  7. Jan. 26, 12:09pm

    That picture above is amazing! What wheels were used for that GT86?

    • Jan. 26, 12:51pm

      its that 5 spoke wheel near the very right of the wheels selection, might be a PDI one i dont remember, im wondering what the parameters set on the camera taking the picture was, colour looks amazing

    • Jan. 26, 11:05pm

      RAYS Trinity V?

  8. Jan. 26, 9:55am

    Stage route 7 in an event. Impressive.

  9. Jan. 26, 6:59am

    86 drift trial is bloody awesome, even playing field allround and my first time getting to 158th with 15.2k. Im pretty happy with that

    • Jan. 26, 1:02pm

      Finally! The reign of the TVR Speed 12 bourgeoisie has ended!
      Rise up proletariat! Take back what is rightfully yours! The crown shall be overthrown!

      No but seriously, this is pretty cool as I still haven’t seen a Speed 12 in my UCD. We should be seeing some new names in the top ranks.

  10. Jan. 26, 6:44am

    Still at work so don’t know but,… I thought “yes no car choise” now it realy comes to the driver. So I hope tuning is not alowed. Anyway FINALY a TSUKUBA TT. My fav. track

  11. Jan. 26, 6:21am

    Thanks Jordan for using my picture.
    So excited!

  12. Jan. 26, 6:13am

    A drift trial on Route 7?? Oh boy…

    • Jan. 26, 8:47am

      I used my SS Commodore, need heaps of speed so u don’t hit the wall I had to do it 5 or 6 times just to get past the first corner then the next time I made it thought all the corners and got gold.

    • Jan. 26, 11:06pm

      1st and 3rd corner’s narrow as hell, and 2nd corner takes time to understand. lmao

  13. Jan. 26, 6:08am

    GT-86 should be fun, although I still prefer my AE86 for drifting. That said I’ve hardly driven the GT-86 since I got it.

  14. Jan. 26, 5:40am

    Hmm SSR7 drift trial not the best choice, theyre will be no using my Genki Hyper Silvia for that then…

  15. Jan. 26, 5:16am

    the gt86 actually is a very underpowered car toyota says it is 200hp but recent dyno says it is around 170hp and the torque curve has an unusual torque dip. i was actually looking forward about this car in real life but those numbers are very disappointing, VERY.

    • Jan. 26, 6:23am

      Dyno numbers are calculated at the wheel. Meaning some of the power is lost due to friction from the drivetrain.

      Take 170 and multiply back in an approx. 12-15% then you’ll find that it is about 200hp at crank.

  16. Jan. 26, 5:10am

    No A-Spec? WTH!

    • Jan. 26, 1:57pm

      LOL, yup I meant A-Spec type races.

  17. Jan. 26, 4:26am

    “Toyota 86 GT Madrid City / Reverse Drift Trial”

    Why the “Toyota 86 GT” part here? Copy/paste gone wrong? :P

    • Jan. 26, 6:27am

      Ignore this remark…


  18. Jan. 26, 3:50am

    Sounds good – ditto on the lack of Speed 12s and Specials :D

    It’ll be a good opportunity to get to know the 86 – kinda got lost in all the awesome cars and updates that were added recently!

  19. Jan. 26, 2:05am

    finaly a scoreboard not filled with speed 12

    • Jan. 26, 4:23am


    • Jan. 26, 12:08pm


    • Jan. 31, 4:15pm

      +1000000000000… But i do love killing my friends speed 12’s with one of my silvias or my stang

    This is one of the best drift events yet! Its nice to have an equal playing field! Not all of those Cerbera Speed 12″s!! :)

    • Jan. 26, 12:08pm


  21. Jan. 25, 10:56pm

    Thanks for the shout out… Loving the drift events…

  22. Jan. 25, 10:43pm

    Wonderful! 14051pts laid down at Madrid… now off to SSR7. And a proper untuned TT, ty Kaz and PD!

    • Jan. 25, 10:56pm

      Im sure I saw you as top score for a while… I only scored a sorry, yet perfect 10’000 points… I actually like how its bang on 10’000 I dont want to try anymore haha

    • Jan. 25, 11:02pm

      Nah never got to top spot, got to 29th with that at the time… probably down to 300 at least by now. I would leave it at the perfect 10k if I were you… shows an extra bit of class ;) lol

    • Jan. 26, 11:29am

      Yeah, that extra class, I mean yeah I could have pulled in an easy 19’765 but as you said wheres the class :P

  23. Jan. 25, 10:42pm

    is that correct ssr7 drift trial? wtf theres like 2 corners, 86 drift trial? the thing has no power i can’t drift that lol

    • Jan. 25, 10:46pm

      Tune up the bugger then! Trust me, it drifts… and drifts well ;))

    • Jan. 26, 12:20am

      Power? All this car needs is a tire change to Comfort tires (can’t remember the exact compound I used) and it’ll go sideways faster than Herman Cain’s presidential campaign.

    • Jan. 26, 11:30am


    • Jan. 26, 2:26pm

      Ditto graytotoro. Took my stock 86 from the Tsukuba TT right into the drift trial and easily got gold. I am likely the worst drifter on GTP. :) Car seems to be a perfect fit for the course.

  24. Jan. 25, 10:39pm

    I have such a good tune for that car can’t wait!

  25. Jan. 25, 10:39pm

    I’ll be too busy grinding the b-spec seasonals for the next few days before they disappear!

  26. Jan. 25, 10:34pm


  27. Jan. 25, 10:33pm

    First!!!! :)

    • Jan. 25, 10:41pm

      GT 86 Drift Trial is lotsa fun ;)

    • Jan. 25, 10:44pm

      YAY go you -_-

      And yes, it is indeed lotsa fun!! :)
