Its that time of year again. Cars are put away and we have nothing to do, the few with winter builds aside. We naturally drift towards indoors and thus video games. Gran Turismo 6 will be released this Friday on PS3 (not PS4). We haven’t had much if any advertisement towards the release. I’m still very excited for the new edition to the GT lineup. They added a bunch of new cars and more importantly new tracks. Which include Willow Springs, Bathurst, Silverstone, Spa (no DLC required) Goodwood Hillclimb, and Brands Hatch.
We’ll be hosting our open lobby once again this season. We’d love to have full season of racing however as per last year,it seems people are less interested in an organised series than a pickup race lobby. Not a big deal, as long I can get some online races in. More details after the game is released.
All Forza and GT fanboyisms aside. This game looks incredible.
Circuit Soul has been creating a lot of buzz on the west coast. With their RWB build and grand opening last month. I love all their Japanese influenced stickers and shirts. Top notch designs.
E34 M5s are fast. Add another 650-700 hp and you have this.
My man Chris Harris, testing out a Porsche and a Mclaren yet still has time to slag Ferrari. Got damn, the Porsche has so much wheel gap. As a Porsche fan boy, I’m not sure which I’d rather have.
Its off season for us. Not much on the docket. Dan is working away on his Caddy, Adrian on his motor build, I’m looking for a new car, Mauncho is shopping for items for his new ride, and a few other things in the works. That’s about it. Nothing major and no real progress in the last few weeks. The start of winter is usually the lull before the winter builds start going. Headed over to Dan’s in the winter beater. The Subie will not be seeing summer anymore, good riddance. Still dumped though. :)
Dan and Geoff decided to build on a smaller scale. 1/24th to be precise. I sort of wanted to join in too. But I have issues with patience….I have none. I’d end up tossing the kits out after a few days of painting, gimme Minichamps and Autoart die-casts over these any day. I MIGHT end up changing my mind later though.
Dan bought a 993 GT3, Tom Kristensen DTM car and a VW golf. Geoff bought a Mike Rockenfeller DTM car.
Not a whole lot was accomplished as time was taking up watching Pacific Rim. Engine components mostly.
James Courtney escaped from major injuries this weekend after Alexander Premat plowed into the side of his car. Not much blamed can be put on Premat though. Once you leave the track at that speed at that corner, you’re pretty much a passenger.
