Ohh ooh is that open? Top thread idea, thanks. Maybe you could consider posting and updating rankings on the forum here and even maaaaybe someone might hook us up with a prize for best rank at closing time? ^-^

Yus... I might aim for higher than the 80th or so that I managed in 2011. Lol >_<

Top 50, here I come!

Starts up Jan 1 I gather. Yep I can run a wee leaderboard if a few of us have a go at it and there's an easy way to see people's times ;)

I made top 20 last time with controller, have wheel now so hopeful i can at least match that.

Wow 20... nothing to sniff at... ok, I'll aim for 19. Though if I can't do those Vettel challenges yet then I might be a bit hopeful.

Id be keen on this but I don't think I will put much effort into it as the finals contradict with potential due date and I don't think I could get away with missing that :whistle:

If it was like the last GT academy -I think you can hold lobbies with friends and talk to each other / see each others ghosts while having a go. Plus it showed your mates best times.
I think I made 220-230ish (I could be way off) for the last one that NZ wasn't actually included in... with being around the 20th Kiwi home :D

-WIll hit Teljam up about a prize Re the top time for this :)

Mighty Ape has surprisingly let me down in regards to this so think I may not be able to participate until the very end at the very least :(

That's incredibly crap. I'm having a hard time believing they could be that crap.

edit: Yup I'm reading it now... wow and I had set my ps3 up just for that. Time to pack it away again, I guess.
