What a great race. Lots of stories and drama all day at Sebring. The 908 won, new car but the 2010 style, not the 2011. And the guy that won the GT race in the BMW won the Rolex 24 hour race in Grand Am. The Rici 458 was winning that race until they had an alternator go. I think the 458 is going to beat the BMWs down the road, they did excellent for most of the race with a car they only had for a week. And its going to be delivered to Grand Am, next race I think. The car with the guy that won the GT Academy came in second in its class, LMP2. They really screwed that class up, its slow and the cars are too fragile. Shame, it was the worse class. I think it only has 4 or 5 cars and half dropped out and of the remaining they finished with GT cars and LMPC cars in front of them. The Playstation Nissan had some major issues they had to fix, forgot what, and that's why they went to second. The worse car showing was the Gallardo, out of the race with I guess a broken axle at the 25 minute mark. And there was an airborn Petron 458 that got totaled when it landed. Those highlights should be on the recap show tomorrow at 12:30 East on ABC. If you have ESPN3, but missed it, they should have it up to rewatch sometime tonight. Now, going to check out the Super Moon and then watch the Kia 200 Grand Am race I DVR'd.

Indeed, great race. So proud of the guy from GT Academy taking second, what a story. And he's only going to get better.

Shame the Gallardo was out soon, would have liked to see more of what it had in it. Also, I think the 458 shows a lot of promise too. You could also tell how new everything was when after that switch he didn't know how to turn the headlights on.

And what a showing for Highcroft!! A Honda breaks up a Peugeot 1-2 and prevents Audi from the podium for LMP1. Great finish for them.

They had a problem with gearbox and something electronic with gear changing from what they said during the race.

If you guys follow racing, lots of info and people on Twitter. Chevrolet, Dodge, Highcroft Racing (back to back ALMS winners), Walter Motorsports (cart racing), LTD Luxury Car news, etc.. are following me, lol. But anyway, you can get lots of info from the teams, drivers, etc. off Twitter. Plus, many will interact with you.

YESSSSSS!!! Great day. Bought both the Toyota GT-One and the Ford GT LM Race Car!!!

2 cars left. TWO. Mitsubishi CZ-3 Tarmac 01 and Jaguar XFR. I'm not entirely sure the Jag can even be bought, there's not a price listed on mygranturismo. So looks like I'm off to do the Top Gear Advanced.

I've seen that Tarmac '01 a few times....just need it to show up one more time. And this is the first time I've ever seen the Ford GT LM show up. WOOO!!

Edit: Good question, slick. I don't know anywhere myself. I'm too busy getting PUMPED for Melbourne though. 3 days till P1!!! (ish)

Did they tone back the Top Gear challenge? I got gold on advanced on my third try. Would have had it on my second too without a minor slip up. I don't remember it being that easy....

Oh well, Jaguar XFR acquired. One car to go...

Looks like the GT1 and GT3 sites will stream their races on their websites. The XFR is a prize car, don't know what you have to do though for it. And I started looking at computer sims now that I can put my laptop on my TV. There are several true sims that came out from 2007 on. And, they have demos. One of the best is GTR2. You can find that demo online. Another, GTR Evolution even has Nurburgring on it. These games go a little further then GT5 does with things like Pit Crew comms, race weekends with practice laps and qualifying, yellow flags, ext.. And the one with Nurburgring is like $9 on Amazon, GTR Evolution. I love GT5, but this last version has really got me into racing and interested on what else is available in sim racing. GTR Evolution is actually a stand alone expansion of Race 7. It is not the only one. Another is called STCC, Scadinavian Touring Car Championship. I think there are more, that you can buy in bundles and play online. And I think that Race 7 has mods and that is what some websites that do online racing use as a basis for their specialized leagues. Like these guys:

http://www.raceconnect.com/ or these guys http://www.f1bc.com/. I am going to have to upgrade or buy a new laptop, lol. I hope that Kaz in his next version of GT incorporates some of the ideas and realism that others are using. But, not take as long for the next version, lol.


GT1 should be televised here - http://www.gt1world.com/gt1tv Some of the favorites from GT5, Ford GT, Vette Z06, Lambo 670, Nissan GT-R and Aston Martin DB9 going at it.

GT Academy winner Lucas Ordonez rises from couch potato to podium sitter


IT'S every Gran Turismo gun's dream - the right to race wheel-to-wheel against real opponents, in real cars.
There's just a couple of things standing in the way. Cash, for one. Age might be another.
There's also the whole danger thing. Remember kids, it's just like the Matrix - you die at Le Mans, you die in real life.
But if your name's Lucas Ordonez, that's all small beer, because last weekend, the 25-year-old Spaniard showed he had the stones to make a world-first transition from couch potato to podium sitter.
Yep, while the rest of you were munching cheeseballs, Ordonez was pushing 300km/h in his Nissan LMP over 12 hours at the famous Sebring circuit in Floirida.
And doing a great job of it, too.
Along with teammates Soheil Ayari and Franck Mailleux, Ordonez finished second in his class for Team Signatech after several slightly ironic software glitches kept sending him to the pits.

"It's unbelievable," he told the media of his dream ride to the top.
"My objective when I entered the competition was to become a racing driver, but not at this level."
Ordonez's journey began when he finished top of the class at the inaugural GT Academy in 2008, run by Sony PlayStation and Nissan.
Ordonez won the GT5 Prologue time trial series against 25,000 other hopefuls.
Since then, another 37,000 Facebook fans have followed his three-year journey from console to car, culminating in the astonishing effort at Sebring with Signatech Nissan.
Basically, if you have a drivers' licence and you're pretty handy at Gran Turismo 5, you're a chance.
Oh, and you have to live in Europe.
Given Ordonez's next big race will be the classic 24-hours of Le Mans in June, that's probably not the worst move you could make if you suddenly find yourself among the best of the best online.
Sony is now accepting entries for the 2011 GT Academy.
This year it promises the top 24 drivers a chance to prove their skills in real race situations at the UK's Silverstone circuit, with the chance to qualify for an in ternational race licence and a spot on the grid at the Dubai 24-hour race in January.

If you think you're slick enough - and you live in Europe - check it out at http://www.facebook.com/GTAcademy.

Bought my last car today, the Mitsubishi CZ-3 Tarmac '01. Feels good to finally own every car and be done with it.

Default Le Mans! Club on GT Planet Race Sat.

Congrats on the last car. I have them all but on of the Citroen GT cars, and whatever ones have disappeared like the NSX Le Mans car. Sigh.


Anyhow, To celebrate the first GT1 race of the season this weekend in Abu Dahbi, we are going to be racing the cars in that series in my Le Mans! Club at GT Planet. GT1 racing is a series of races. So, I though that we'd do is a 3 set championship series this weekend with points. At the end of the third race, 1,2,3 overall would get cars of up to 1 mil, 750k and 500k. Last place, as always, gets some matte paint. Point system will be 4 points for 1st, 3 for second, 2 for third. all others get 1. You have to use the same car for all three races, but you can tweek them. I will come up with a PP that will get them even as possible. Its going to be a different field for sure.

DB9, Nissan GT-R, 670-4 SuperVeloce, Corvette Z06, Ford GT

We'll use the no chicane map, 4 laps each. Last race will be a night race (with chicanes) as they have the championship race at the end of the day after all the other races.

If you want to watch the real race this weekend, I think coverage will start at about 4am Eastern Daylight Savings Time Friday and it will be on the GT1 website:

I am having lots of luck with my laptop that has an HDMI out to my LCD TV for streaming sports and also Dish TVs on Demand. Cords are cheap now, I got a good quality 25' cable for $10 and my 3 1/2 year old laptop can put out a 1080p image that looks great, much better then on the laptop.

So, my DS3 was finally liberated from my rage as it set off through the air towards the projector screen at 100 mph. It's only crime was to steer me into the last cone on IB-3 Slalom, just as I was heading for the painstaking, thumb-breaking time of 18:500 (fastest time so far 18:516).
Fortunately the little pad survived it's record breaking flight through space and time as it safely landed on a set of cushions on the floor. I'm just so glad that I was using the PJ and not my LCD as this would have been a different type of post altogether.

So far in my quest to achieve the sacred 60 gold trophies, I'm currently 56gold and 4silver

So I've managed to gold everything except the Vettel challenge. I'm scared to even try that challenge because I've heard its so hard. Anybody here got gold in it? Just wondering what kind of tips someone has for golding this challenge. Maybe I should try a few endurance races in the X2010 so I can get used to the car before attempting the challenges.
