Man, the Vettel challenge seems almost impossible to ace. It took me a while just to get silver on the 2nd track (the easy one) but on the 1st and 3rd track, even when I think I've done everything the best that I can do, I'm still 7 or 8 seconds off the pace for silver. Looks like I may have to just accept 2 bronze and a silver on that challenge.

Anyway, I thought trying to ace the Vettel challenge would be the last thing I'd try to do with the game but I decided to tackle some more of the A-spec endurance races this past weekend. The game is now 98% complete but I'm not sure if I'll get 100% or not since the remaining races are the 9-hour and 2 24-hour A-spec endurance races. Wish they allowed saving on those.

Also, 4 of my B-spec drivers are level 40 but I haven't gotten the raise a driver to the peak of his career trophy (or whatever it's called). How do you get that? Do you have to max out the green bars or the experience bar?

Yea the Vettel Challenges are really hard. I've golded Monza and I'm about 4 seconds away from gold on Suzuka after practicing for about a week. I haven't attempted Nurburgring yet.

To get a B-spec driver to the peak of his career his experience bar has to be full and his skills have to start diminishing. It takes something like 500 races for this to happen.

Yup, what Rblu said. Just race the Beginner Series/Sunday Cup Autumn Ring Mini over and over with your Bob that has the highest white experience bar. Each race will count as one race day and push your bar further towards the end. Race will go much quicker if you use a fast car like the Formula Gran Turismo or the Red Bull X2010's.

EDIT: With the X2010, and dependent on your Bob's skills the Autumn Ring Mini is usually finished anywhere from 2m35s-2m45s

I'm getting really frustrated with the Vettel Challenge on Suzuka. I cant even make it through the first S's 95% of the time. I've only beaten the first marker goal once. Read that by the first marker you need to be around 28.4 seconds. Seems like people in the videos do it with ease and I'm going all out and still cant make the time.

It's probably just a list of tracks people think should have been included with the game.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I've got a ways to go since I think the most any of my drivers have is around 185 or so races. I had been having them do the endurances races over and over thinking that would get them to their peak faster since they're more challenging.

I plan to watch some videos of people completing it tonight hoping to see where I need to do better. But yeah, the tough part of the first and 3rd track is just making it around the track cleanly especially when having to push it.

Yea I've just practiced Suzuka for like 3 hours and only made 1 complete lap. It was a 1'08. I'm not seeing any progress at all.

Wow, you're right. Watching the videos, people make it look really easy. I was sure I was going to see something that I should be doing that I was missing but I didn't see anything obvious.

I did read on gtplanet that one guy that did videos of gold on all 3 had it floored the whole time and was just tapping the brakes as needed in the turns. I hadn't thought of trying that so I may give that a shot to see how it goes. Seems like that should save a little time but not the 7 or 8 seconds (or more) that I need to make up.

I can never get the braking point right on the final chicane. That part is harder because I dont get much practice on that half of the track.

The breaking point I used for the final chicane relied on the driving line. Watch the line I used. I was not on the line. My breaking point would be when the driving line was about to intersect my line. If you intersect before breaking, your too late. It will only take a few laps to master that turn if follow my advice there.

So change the date on your PS3's system settings to your birthday, already!

For my birthday car, I think I ended up restarting the game and reloading my GT5 save about 10-12 times before I got the car I was finally happy with. Now I can't remember for the life of me what it was LOL!

Well, power-braking (is that the correct term?) helped me a little on the Monza course but not enough to get gold yet. I decided to spend a while last night trying that on the Monza course since I figured it would be much easier to get use to it on that track. It helped but I'm still 0.523 from getting gold and if I can't get gold on Monza, there's no way I'll get silver or gold on the other two tracks. Grrr...

Heh, another one that makes it look really easy. I wish we could load your replay and use it as a ghost driver for practicing. It would be easier to determine what line you're taking versus what the game shows.
