Only because i took too many photos and it'd flood the main topic. ;)

 

Only saved the Autumn Ring Reverse replay from last Thurs, but here's the pics from that that i took.

 

Reverse Grid Start, me in the reddy/pinky car, wifey in the army greenish coloured car (worst colour she could find for it).

Everyone had slight traction problems

14694078415_1528188c6a_b.jpgAutumn Ring_4 

 

Not sure if engine blowd up or

14507624747_3162a92a80_b.jpgAutumn Ring_5 

 

We were still there at night time

14713940893_1178bfaec2_b.jpgAutumn Ring_6 (2) 

 

And the next morning too. Don't buy cheap Chinese tyres...

Cameraman/woman had time to walk behind the cars before most of us had passed the start line to start the race

Bunching up around the second corner

Fifa in his orange car suffered mechanical issues and wasn't up the front for very long

14713942253_6d7b086230_b.jpgAutumn Ring_10 

 

Always one tail dragging in his taildragger

14507626757_51b90b18e3_b.jpgAutumn Ring_11 

 

Everyone seemed to get through cleanly. Well, me and wifey anyway by the time this pic was taken.

14713942893_12e1b3265c_b.jpgAutumn Ring_12 

 

Angle parking

More colourful version

14694081925_f62d83a0dc_b.jpgAutumn Ring_14 

 

Most of the field was still bunched up

14690896691_db16e8868d_b.jpgAutumn Ring_15 

 

Woodnt you know, i was still in the lead

Harassing the birdlife were these cars

14671056806_06c18014e4_b.jpgAutumn Ring_17

 

Onto the second lap i went

14693792652_11ae4f89fe_b.jpgAutumn Ring_18 

 

shaunxr6 getting the car on two wheels. Brett up in second place with fifa way in the background. His cars' Vtec was depleting at a rapid rate.

14507630057_d138df5416_b.jpgAutumn Ring_19

 

Me turning the car in before the corner (because doing so after would be too late)

14690898761_51e3d6d2ff_b.jpgAutumn Ring_20 

 

The battle continues on the last corner heading into the 3rd lap

14691685604_27ee304e34_b.jpgAutumn Ring_21 

 

Which then became a three way battle for a while

14694084575_ab3ea1363e_b.jpgAutumn Ring_22 

 

sidawg2 was now in second, and pushing hard

So hard that he forced the colour back into the game
14507425949_683a02c67c_b.jpgAutumn Ring_24
 
And almost took off into outer space
14507631937_48a7416cdd_b.jpgAutumn Ring_25
 
To no avail however, as SkylineObsession had secretly installed an NSX V6 engine into his Civic just before the race
14507428788_e67a8eaa10_b.jpgAutumn Ring_26 
 
Which subsequently destroyed itself right at the finish line on the last lap, causing the car to go into a wild spin
14691687524_c9e9fc02cb_b.jpgAutumn Ring_27

If anyone else takes pics from any races we do, you could chuck them in here too. Might encourage more people to join us?

I used to do photo's wayyy back when we started GT5 race nights but I ran out of time since those days.

Oh no, what have i started.  :lol:

 

I will try save at least one replay from each week (more chaotic, or close the race is the better i'd think) and do a wee recap. :)

 

And (shameless plug time - you can click the back button anytime now if you wish  ;) ) if it is my sense of humour you find funny, then you may want to check out my GT site as every single page on the site uses my sense of humour to make the info less boring.

Sometimes the page descriptions have nothing to do with the game at all. Sometimes there are random conversations.

And rambling. Lots of rambling.

 

http://www.gtseriescenter.com/

 

Speaking of which, i should really start updating it again.  :blush:

Well it's that time of week again folks. Jono and Ben at Ten.  :thumbsup:

 

Oops, wrong topic.

 

Uh. Yeah, GT6. 

So far i've only taken pics of the first race, but have saved three other race replays so may do a quick roundup of them. I say quick, but if the replay looks too photogenic i may end up taking far too many pics.  -_-

 

Right. As you may know (especially if you were there), eight of us joined the lobby last night, with a new guy who i invited along.

 

First race was at Laguna Seca. I pulled out the quickest qualifying lap out of my secret pocket (didn't even know i had a secret pocket, oddly enough) so started at the front of the pack. But lost the lead not long after...

 

To confuse and disorientate my enemi..... uhhh, opponents, i created a smoke screen

14738953042_658888de08_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_16

 

It didn't work sadly. swillisam and sidawg were still right behind me. :(

14759107203_487958c10e_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_17

 

They ran out of Lexus helmets, so swillisam went for the next best thing (click image to enlarge)

14759107403_c4b1636c39_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_18 

 

sidawg, Brett and triumph opted for the cone challenge instead

14552574060_0008e2c790_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_19 

 

Due to a faulty decal (peeling off), i had lost a lot of hp (it was a Type R sticker obviously) and was rapidly being caught

14759107783_bc269a781b_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_20 

 

Further back, argsy had spotted a lost cat just as he was heading up the hill towards the corkscrew, so quickly pulled over to save it - thus sacrificing his race. The cat community thanks you for your efforts, and they'd like to pass on a message to you for helping it: "Meow, mrowl!". Think that means "Thanks bro."?

14739245915_8326f6ba25_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_21 

 

Sadly, on the run up the hill my decals suddenly came off the car at an absurd rate (last time i use PVA glue) and they even tore off the paint and pretty much everything else on the car too, to the point where i had no steering, no braking, no engine, no cookies, no sound and no way to get home (map dissolved as well). You could say i was i was a ghost.

The race had a new leader, and they were all following him. Those are the rules, remember?

14552611279_5273a84fc7_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_23 

 

Bretts garage got a great deal on yellow paint

14738955002_10093c849a_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_24 

 

Heading into lap two, sidawg suddenly slammed his brakes on and came to a complete stop on the front straight when he saw fourbeen's Lexus evaporating away on the side of the track. Almost instantaneously though, the prospect of not getting first place forced him back into the race leaving the semi visible car to it's own.

14738955542_32b6390950_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_25 

 

What are two Lexus cars called? Lexus's? Lexii? Tlexus?

14716240786_2610ab9a73_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_26 

 

Three corners later, Brett and Triumph were still driving side by side. Perhaps not realising it was a race? Or both guys were feeling over courteous and always wanted to let the other guy take the corner first. Who knows. Not us. Not them. And not that old guy you saw today either.

14552791857_5d34ffa8ab_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_27 

 

1 lap later and still in the lead. Orange is the new red it seems.

14759109963_03f0e96b24_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_28 

 

At the new back of the field (remember the invisible green car, and the good samartian helping the kitty cat) SkylineObsession had retrieved his stickers/paint/cookies and put them all back on the car with a nailgun full of screws (???), and was starting to eat his way through the field. And the cookies.
Here, you will observe him in front of newcomer Anthony. Notice the damage to the front of Skylines' car though - turns out some stickers needed a bit more 'persuasion' to stay on the car. And have you also noticed that my descriptions for these images are particularly long today?

In a sudden fit of insanity, swillisam appeared to try take a shortcut, but milliseconds later (after this image was taken) he wisely changed his mind and turned back onto the track, still keeping the lead from a stunned sidawg2.

14736884624_43af3035d4_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_30

 

A whole lap later Triumph eventually had enough of being courteous and planted it. Perhaps the approaching screwed up damaged grey Lexus played a part in that decision.

14736073061_8a0aae8bb2_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_31

 

The leaders's cars were starting to look angry. Not sure why, but red can be an aggressive colour. However, there is a chance that the cars have always looked this angry because that is how the designers made them, but to be honest that's just hearsay.

14552577590_4d43718a90_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_32 

 

Clearly angry. So i'm not sure why they are now attempting the courteous approach earlier made by other players.

14552793097_d8f913d619_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_33 

 

Out of the blue came the grey Lexus, but Brett wasn't giving up without a fight. Triumphmad was nowhere to be seen.

14552793257_17da4686dd_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_34 

 

The track managers and a few mechanics idling about the track treated argsy to a free car service for saving the fluffy widdle kitty cat.

14736885794_65bf0bd411_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_35 

 

The rest stood shoulder to shoulder in a guard of honour. We're all animal lovers, deep down. :)

OH COME ON!!! Enough of this courteous rubbish, just pass him! Or you pass him. Not not you, you. 

14736886324_83d8360122_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_37

 

Oooohhhh, i see. swillisam was fooling sidawg. Right before the finish line on the last lap he suddenly gunned it and won the race. Sneaky...

14738958822_29c2461fca_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_38 

 

Dirty screwy Lexus was still attempting to pass Brett's yellow bumblebee. Could he do so now that they were on the finish straight? Surely not! He's dreaming! :D

14739250555_46bcd8df8a_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_39 

 

What the i don't even. This is what  0.007 looks like. "Lexus. James Lexus".

14716243776_3c5dbda485_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_40 

 

After adjusting the set, the result was the same. 

14552579970_af4f471386_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_41 

 

Somehow Triumph had stopped and hidden somewhere when he saw the approaching Lexus, and he finished that far ahead of Anthony's orange Lexus.

14736887594_a1e5afa263_b.jpgMazda Raceway Laguna Seca_42 

 

Madness.

Haha, love it! Really annoying when cat owners don't keep their pets on a leash at these type of events! Pulled into the pits, said I had a problem, pit chief asked, let me guess, must be the slow lap times, nope, it was fluffy, give fluffy to me!

Fluffy cats take priority over lap times any day. They also take priority when sitting on your lap.

:P

And here's a wee blurb from the second race of that night;

Well all the racers who were with us on Laguna Seca decided to come back and try it all again on another track, this time at Willow Springs early in the morning.

No-one could be bothered lining up properly on the starting grid however, so it looked a bit haphazard and as you can see a few cars still hadn't warmed up yet (smoke).
14750264266_2bf0058bbc_b.jpg

We're all equal when you take away colours and other distinguishing features. Peace to all you brothers (and sisters and second cousins)
14773275345_2660565878_b.jpg

Six and a half cars wide at one point. Some needed more racing room than others, so made their own track.
14586790627_b9b6112cec_b.jpg

Sadly, this was the beginning of the end. Fourbeen in his green bean machine retired shortly after. As did every other car in the race eventually - NO-ONE, finished...
14772935532_f068fc41c6_b.jpg

In the west part of the track, the springs in his Lexus suddenly uncoiled themselves and damaged the car too much to continue. DNF #1 of 8
14586791317_5050efac53_b.jpg

Then argsy for some reason decided to drive away into the sunset. Despite it being morning only a few corners back. DNF #2 of 8
14773276545_d5bec27812_b.jpg

Yet again i suffered a huge engine failure, which locked the back wheels and put me into a fast and dangerous backwards slide. DNF #3 of 8

triumphmad broke the GOLDen rule... DNF #4 of 8
14586792717_b5a69128fb_b.jpg
 
Whereas BrettzOr completely lost focus. Last seen heading towards Belgium. DNF #5 of 8
14770918464_c203e0dcbb_b.jpg
 
An excessive amount of downforce spelled the end of the race for Anthony, since he lost the ability to steer with wheels in the air - the pic is right there, if you actually care. To be fair, he had no fear, of the pear right here that appears to hear what you sheer for hair and gear the tier and ........ i'm running out of rhyming words - thank me later, this coulda gone on for a while. DNF#6 of 8
14770918434_a55d398dac_b.jpg
 
If you thought things were already a bit absurd, what about swillisam and his alien abduction? DNF #7 of 8
14793145623_a4cf2aab65_b.jpg
 
Finally sidawg2, the sole remaining racer, got spooked off and out of the race by the ghost of fourbeen and his green Lexus, and since ghosts can fly there was no escaping it. DNF #8 of 8
14770104581_d9cbc95119_b.jpg
 
Let us never speak of this again...

And now for the pictures that didn't make the cut (weren't good enough for my story).
 
It was a colourful day in Dullsville, OH.
14586789407_9152476dfb_b.jpg
 
An orange car. It isn't turquoise.
14793145283_bc3cce2213_b.jpg
 
Cornering around a corner. Later on he straighted down a straight.
14586570120_7c4dacac12_b.jpg
 
And another pic, incase you missed it the first time.
14773279605_ec303c63f0_b.jpg
 
Five or six races into our three race weekly event, the final four had a massive one lap battle on the Nordschleife. Don't know what made it 'massive', but it sounds good when you say it.
14793146873_d52dacf291_b.jpg
 
Two corners after this shot was taken, fourbeenevil headed into the deep dark forest never to be seen again. Everyone else just carried on like nothing happened.

Oh man. Didn't see this one.
Don't remember all the DNF's but maybe the ghost of Fourbeen wiped my memory :o

On a side note: I will post up this weeks race tonight
