ya hes gonna have a ton of fun paying for insurance…
a drag race? really? they should have did a lap shot out who ever finished with the best lap time won..wtf this is b.s that calvo looks like he still a virgin
He want be for long with that sls ;)
What does looking like a virgin have anything to do with the topic at hand?
That is one of the most single idiotic and asinine comments I’ve seen on this site.
all i heard u say sumbrownkid was blah blah blah blah b,s b,s blah blah,,,cool story kiddo
i dont care. put actual stuff about gran turismo
GTPlanet covers everything and anything that has to do with the Gran Turismo series. If you don’t care about that, don’t visit this blog.
Well they were using B-Spec, and using GT logo’d wheels, and PD was supporting the challenge.
So, yes, this is actual stuff about Gran Turismo.
You can either get over it, or do what Jordan suggested.
I want those shirts that they are wearing ! Can anyone send me a photo of it or template? I really want one :) Please
lol… Why did the guy with the Australian accent get subtitles? We’re not that difficult to understand, are we?
Yeah i though that was a little strange :)
Yeah, I wasn’t that hard to understand was I??? :D
I guess this type of final was like a coin flip… maybe not the best way to decide…
but was cool in that way that it is the typical license test no. 1 on the GT series…lol
A drag race isn’t a very good way to decide it after all that.
heh, it’d cost more than i earn in a year just to insure that AMG SLS.
doing the Lowestoft to LandsEnd run next week in a 2.0i Turbo Mondeo Titainium X with the missus. Just like an 8hr enduro in GT5, but IRL. A303 here we come.
It doesn’t make sense to me how the winner of a competition that first started with B-spec was decided with real driving…
SPAIN RULES !!!
does anybody know if those cockpit booths are for sale?
I tried looking those up and couldn’t fin ’em. So, nope. I want one too. :D
Actually, they are: http://www.gtplanet.net/official-gt5-racing-pods-on-sale-for-9500-in-dubai/
An sls owner who calls himself Mazda … Ok
i’m so jealous x(
haaa haaa hooo i hav sls in real life i dnt hav todo this hhee hhaa ha
the end came down to a drag race?! at least do time trial around the course…how anti-climatic
yeah, did seem like an odd choice of events. Bit light on racing skill.
They probably wanted to keep the risk of a collision to a minimum :)
Yeah, but they kept having to speed up parts of the film for anything that required turning, and it still looked like my dead grandma driving. A drag race gives maximum appearance of performance fo minimum risk to the car, and i’m sure that’s what Merc wanted for promo purposes. A bunch of greenies dinging paint and going in the grass doesn’t make for good company/product image promotion.
agreed. this competition could of been handled better
I’m so jealous…
Can I smack the narrator? >=O He said “Computer Gamers”, so bad.
He also said “Most realistic racing simulator on the market today”… As much as I love GT, I LOL’d.
If he meant on the PS3 / console market I think he’s not far off.
Cool! Now DLC for the ones that didn’t win.
What does DLC mean? :D
Awesome & great job! If I had that chance I’d be ecstatic just to be there !
hmmm, just one of those crazy thoughts. possibly an official drag function for a future update? n redbull ring for DLC?? would be pretty awesome. GT5 FOREVER. peace
