So do we have any interest in starting up a new offseason of online racing? I haven't touched it since last winter and wouldn't mind getting back into some racing now that the real season is over. Especially with the new one coming out.

I would be up for a race on Sunday, just a shakedown to get into the season. Road cars 550-625pp, sport tires; no other restrictions. Will be interesting to see what it's like to drive the Deltawing, Audi R18 and the Lunar Moon car in GT6.

Awesome..... hope you can make it.

I haven't played in ages... in fact I just dug my wheel/setup out a week ago and only played F1 2013 for an hour.



Has anyone been playing GT5 recently and/or have been keeping up with it?
Just wondering if we are all going to be rusty or if some people have been keeping up with it.

I haven't played since the last race I did with you guys last year, and that was before the end of the season, I believe I got disconnected and haven't bothered since. Should check to make sure it didn't make it to a yard sale while I wasn't looking... :roll:

I'll be on line tonight at 8:00pm, Jason mentioned last week that he is out for this weekend. I wouldn't mind running some Ferrari F1 cars if everybody has them.

I doubt Brian P has any Formula cars...... yea I'm out tonight, going to see Fluffy Guy at the Rebecca Cohn.

PS-If anyone hasn't preordered GT6, go do it from EB Games.... you get a DLC code for 20 cars. You only need to put down $5 to reserve your copy.

I think we need to start a DTM / TC series next weekend.

I'm thinking HP/Weight restrictions instead of PP.
500hp / 1100kg (I think real DTM is 470hp / 1110kg)

Who is in?
