Note from the editor: Hello every one and welcome to the "Formula Gran Turismo World Championship of 2013. Sorry I was a bit late in posting this thred, but if you don't pay your bills on time you will get cut off. So I'm back up and I'll do my best to keep my self on line for the next events update.

Any way seeing how much of a hard time I had at running the formula GT with in the game, I just don't know if I can beat this on but I will try! An later to night I'll post my settings if I can beat any of the tracks...

Can't remember the last time I ran a seasonal. I've been at 18 million credits for a long time. Seeing this makes me want to jump on now and earn some caasshh.

I'm way behind on seasonals too,  and this really isn't a strong car for me.

Personally I'm having a lot of fun with these races, I've done 2 so far at 891pp and won the first by 10-15 sec. and the 2nd by 1 sec. trust me I'm not the fastest F-1 driver out there either. They pay in excess of 1.3million credits at that pp so the rewards are great and learning to drive these cars is like warming up with a doughnut on your bat, a few swings with this and the rest of the cars are much easier to turn on Smiley Wink. Straight braking is what has helped me through so far and I guess a decent tune, not sure about the last bit there but it works for me. I'll post it if anyone cares to try it out, good luck.

Eifel is the last one for me to complete.

 

Suzuka was the toughest, so far. It was so easy to make a mistake there that I just kept restarting and restarting. I anticipate Eifel being similar.

I cleared all 5 at 870PP although Eifel was very difficult for me at this range. Good payout at 1.9 to 2+ million. I'm sure those of you who use the F1 cars all the time could improve on this greatly.

Spa would seem like the cash cow to me. My first try was around 883PP, and I was in the lead on the first corner of the 3rd lap, so the PP could be reduced significantly since there's two laps left to play with.

I had quite some difficulties on how the FGT handles differently when I first tried this in the Fuji Speedway race, even if the Skid Recovery force is set to On as its default. Usually when I race the FTG with Racing Hard tires on normal races, it handled quite well, but when I first raced the 950PP FGT in Seasonal Events, it handled as if it's struggling to keep up with the grip when entering/exiting the corner as it started to slide around a bit. Not sure if I'm the only one who finds the FGT vehicle handling differently in the Seasonal Event version of it... Smiley Indifferent

I have had a really hard time with this one just like I had with the ferrari F1 trial. An just this year I finaly beat the in game gran turismo formula trial. So I only got 3 tracks beat. On the Suzuka Circuit for some reson I cant even catch up the the 3rd to last car. An I have run that track really fast in one of the GTF cars.Smiley Indifferent An that last track the Eifel Circuit. WOOOOO I keep jumping off the road!Smiley Mad I finaly made a lape but in last place!Smiley Sad

 

That track is just to crazy for an F1 styled car. An thanks for the Kudos!Smiley Wink
