Here's where BrettzOr will post all the details for each GT5 Thursday Night Racenight.

Please reply to this topic - That way you can come here and join in the fun!

How to Join In
It's real easy to participate - Here's the skinny:

Setting up for the first time:
  • Make sure you've got the latest updates for Gran Turismo 5 - simply run GT5 while you're online and the game will prompt you to update, if you haven't already
  • Make sure you're friends with Brettzor on PlayStation Network - if you're not sure how to add a friend on PSN, check out this handy guide
Setting up for this week's race:

  • Make sure you have the car highlighted in RED in the post below this one
  • At 8pm on Wednesday:
  • Start the game
  • Go to GT5 Life
  • Choose 'Community'
  • Find the gamertag brettzor
  • Select the little icon in the top-right of my gamer tag to join the lounge
Once you're in, you can choose 'Free run' to practice on the track with the other racers, and have a chat too. At 8.30pm, the race will start, and you'll get an automatic countdown; once it's finished - we're on!

Tip: Please do not choose 'Start Race' as this starts the event, which means we need to arrange to cancel and re-do everything.

This week's Details:

Round: 4 American muscle classic!

Vehicle: America (USA)
Year: pre '73 (1973 or under)
Class: Production class (no race cars) - the Shelby AC Cobra will not be allowed*
PP: 600
Spoilers/kits: allowed
Tires: no limit
A.B.S: Allowed
Assists: Off
Penalties: low


Track: Deep Forest Raceway
Laps: 5
Track length: 3601.0m

* I have not allowed the AC cobra, mainly for the fact that most people will prolly choose it (being that it's prolly the best production classic muscle car). And also just to get a good range of old cars.

What Im rocking up with aint going to make me win but its sure is fun!
See wens night guys!

We should do nascars next week, its usually really really fun when i play vs random americans(i was surprised how fun it was considering you just go round and round) but yeah + theres no need to explain car details etc since everyone has a nascar. just an idea.

anyone else reckon the races are getting dirtier each week haha.
got penalized in the 3rd race for false start and brettzor smashed into me lol that was the only highlight seeing as i did kinda crap this round.

OK boys heres round 5 details.
Ive had a call by a few of you to do some Nascar, So here it is, Its time to get all American redneck on it!

Car: Nascar (ford, Toyota, chev so forth)
PP:631 (standard)
Weight: standard, do not change this.
Tires: no limit
Lets leave the vehicles standard,if you dont have a Nascar there will be one at the track under reccomended.
A.B.S: allowed
Assits: off

Track: Daytona International Raceway.
Length: 4023.0m
Longest straight: 9140.0m
Corners: 3
Laps: 10

All though this track is oval and your only going around and around, its actually alot of fun, Its one race where being out front isn't always the best place to be, Drafting is the secret to this race (hence why they race in teams). And also this will be anyones race, you could be in for a win!

I think that next week I want to try something a little different, change things up a bit and make it a bit more interesting,
Here we go,

Next week we will run the usual 3 races, but this time we will run 3 different PP's (300,450,and 600)
The vehicles will be open (anything goes,race cars, whatever), So you will need to have 3 cars around these levels,

Ok heres the kicker, each of the GT5 tracks will have a number that I will randomize, While we are online I will ask a person at random to pick a number, the number picked will be that track for that race, we will also do this 3 times on the night,

We will try this this coming week and see how it goes, It should even things out a bit and say it will add a element of excitement aswell.

But I think we will do 1 car for the three random tracks, so we will make it all rounder, 550pp.

The tracks 7(deep forest reverse), 14(R something something reverse) and 23(london reverse) have been chosen,
What will be next?
