Here's where I will post all the details for each GT6 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 deal:

Setting up for the first time:

  • Make sure you've got the latest updates for Gran Turismo 6 - simply run GT6 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
  • Make sure you have completed the National A Licence under National B series, otherwise you can not play online

Setting up for this week's race:
 

  • Make sure you have the car highlighted in RED in the latest post by me

 

  • At 8pm on Thursday:
  • Start GT6
  • Find the "open lobby" screen
  • Click the filter "Friends' Rooms Only"
  • Find my room " NZGamer Race Nights"
  • Join event

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!

-I am also very open to suggestions: So post any idea's you have below!

Hey guys n girls,

I am looking to start these up again on GT6 on Thursday 12/12/13 and again the following week on 19/12/13.

-then taking a 2-3 week break again through the christmas holiday period.

Since I have not played the game yet, I not sure what we are going to yet but something along the lines of the traditional Sunday Cup seems like it will be the go, Most people wont have too many cars that'l better those at that stage of the game, also super keen on a race on Bathurst :)

Hope to see you all there.

Well that's a killer.
'You need to earn your national A License in Oder to take part in online events."
This game is different with license's as you have to make your way up through the events before you do the licenses. It will take a solid 2 hrs plus I'd say before you can get your national A license!

Good luck to everyone for obtaining that before thursday

What? 2 hours? What's the problem o.o

Old gt5 took 2 hrs to get thru menus to get in your car, buy parts and tune then get into a race, so there's no real change.

Lol. It's not much better now to be fair. Things load quicker and are easier to access... But it's all still very long winded.

I'll be keen for the occasional run with the lads!

I suppose you'll need to keep things pretty basic for the first few to allow some of us to build up a decent garage or are we allowed to pick cars we don't own in the mp? Haven't tried it yet.

I'm yet to decide on the event settings.
It will be something simple along the lines of that Honda Fit that you buy first thing.
Some small tracks 3 laps with sports soft I think.

Then maybe a Bathurst at the end with the free Merc VGT car?

Yeah I'll say keep it simple for a few weeks so we can get some mulla behind us.
Honda fit sounds good, what's the pp stats and sh*t?

I'm surprised at how easy it's going to be to get the plat on this game. I feel like I am almost there already.
You are right about the tracks 4been. There are so many and it's great! Im with the new cars and tracks, we shouldn't run out of ideas for race nights very quickly!
I will have to check out pp 2moro night.

Good to see Gee making a comeback- it's been a while!

Speaking of McLaren - there is a showroom in Auckland now. Drove past it on the way to work. Saw the Classic McLaren MP4/5 F1 car in there - at least I think it was that one.

Love Autumn Ring Mini, one of my favourite tracks. I have to pick the wife up at 9 so will likely only get one race in but will try to be around from 8ish for a free drive.

Trying to join your Race, but it keeps saying the room is full even though it looks like you only have 5 out of 16 players. Do you know what would cause this?
