View Full Version : GT6 Photos

Version #002. ;) Just incase the refuge forum posts can't be saved.

May as well keep them all in one place, because this game can look bloody beautiful. :o

One of the photomode locations (real place)

Again, with the 'miniature' setting

R32 GTS-25. Still a 'standard' model (ported from Gran Turismo 4 on PS2, but tidied up for GT6 on PS3) though, chur.

Artsy shot

Action shot

Doing what Skylines do well. With only 200hp.

January 6th, 2014, 05:20 PM
Photobucket has kindly arranged these photos in the wrong order, so start at the bottom and work up if you want to see the pics from start to finish. ;)

Last corner of the last lap, so had to get it sideways

Passed the Viper

Conrod straight at over 250 km/h (hit a max speed of about 316 km/h, but could very likely hit 320+

About to pass Viper

Now i can floor it :evillaugh:

Oh hai



Look in ur mirrorz



Incase you didn't know what it was...

No GT wing just yet, but its about the last visual mod i can do for now (apart from a big bore exhaust)

Not parked, just max (or min?) shutter speed

At 268 km/h in a 740hp Godzilla, this may happen to you too...

Mt Panorama

Dipping in to the Dipper

Skyline at Skyline

Nana car blocking the Jag and GT-R

Traffic jam

Not sure what the driver is looking at here, but since i was being held up by the Jaguar trying to get past the Mazda, maybe he was changing CD's or the radio station?

About the eclipse the Eclipse (once the Jaguar gets past)

Flying past this EVO VII like it was in reverse, seriously. :eek:

"Okay everyone, please pull over the the side of the track as you're all going to get beaten anyway!"

January 6th, 2014, 05:21 PM
My new favourite car in Gran Turismo. GT Wing is there to try replicate the Diablo GT-R.

Fuzzy car

Slightly breaking the traction limit while cornering.

Diablo. Is nice.


Could fit a house under there

Nice bum

Cornering like a boss. But in a Lamborghini.

How it would have looked before they invented colour

Full frontal brutality

Another photo

And another one here

January 6th, 2014, 05:21 PM
My nearly 900hp Supra. Still not frigging premium though. :(

With other cars of the same class. Uh... actually...

Feather the throttle, feather the throttle...

Arty photo

And another one. With a mini pic of the mountain.

And some barriers

All alone in the wilderness. Wonder how a turbo car would fare up at these heights in real life?

Oh rally?


Some cars with four wheels

January 6th, 2014, 05:22 PM
Some of my 'street' cars;

Mitsubishi Galant - despoilered, big rims and sacked

Nissan 370 - bodykitted, big rims and sacked

Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II - aero bodykit, not the biggest rims and not lowered too much (its my 'race' car)

Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II NuR? (R34) - big rims, sacked

RX-7 and RX-8

January 6th, 2014, 05:22 PM
Mazda RX-7 (2002 model) - despoilered, big rims, sacked (haven't put a big bore exhaust on it yet)

Mazda RX-8 - despoilered, big rims (original rim colour), sacked

Mitsubishi Lancer EVO III GSR - big rims, sacked (funnily enough, i saw afterwards a photo of a pretty much identical one, ride height and wheel-look inclusive, on Facebook the other day :D )

Honda Integra Type R - depoilered, big rims, lowered (full weight reduction done, ends up at about 905 kg's or something - very nimble, and prone to rollovers after hitting ripple strips when cornering. ;) )

Toyota Supra SZ-R - despoilered, big rims, sacked

January 6th, 2014, 05:23 PM
Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec (R33) - big rims, sacked (midnight purple obviously, paint looks positively edible on the PS3 - horrible in this pic :( )

Ford Mustang Cobra R - despoilered, big rims, sacked (700hp+, goes like a rocket :D )

Lamborghini Diablo GT - standard (excluding GT wing - its still my favourite car in GT6 and have put more km's on it than any other car!)

Toyota Supra RZ - big rims, lowered? (900hp or so, so far it's the only car i've had past 400 km/h)

Ferrari F458 Italia - bodykit (incl. wing), big rims

And another pic of the 458 at another spot at this real solar power plant location;

January 6th, 2014, 10:33 PM
Nice pics, mate. I suck at any sort of photography but might have a go one day. 787b at Le Sarthe will be first on the list. Love that car...

January 7th, 2014, 05:40 PM
Thanks. :) I'm a bit of a perfectionist sometimes, all the pics above are all the pics i've ever taken and saved in GT6. But my stats say i've taken somewhere between 2-300 photos. ;)

My only tip, for pics of cars in motion, is that the Panning (?) 1 option is hard to get nice pics out of unless you experiment a lot with settings, but Panning 2 and Panning 3 usually make great motion shots. Can get them from P1, but yeah - just takes longer to get them to look nice i think.

January 7th, 2014, 07:01 PM
If it's like GT5, the spot you focus on is the spot Panning 1 will track. Makes it a little easier to get the desired effect most of the time.

I usually aim for the front wheel or headlight or centre of the grille or whichever corner of the car is closest. If the helmet is exposed I also aim for that.

January 10th, 2014, 04:58 PM
Some recent stuff from me.


The last time I drove Apricot Hill, I was a much younger, much different person. Crazy to think about.


Hero shot.


Some fun with Panning Mode 1:



Back to Mode 3:


And no pan:


Variations on a theme:



This car understeers so much! Almost as much as the Veyron in the final license test. Someone must have snuck Prius tires on the front of that thing. :lol:

January 10th, 2014, 07:04 PM
You think so on the TZ3? I love that thing, its like a bigger cousin to my 8C.

January 11th, 2014, 12:28 PM
Finally a Stingray shot! The others are great, too :up:

Here is a random collection of photos I've taken since the game came out. I'll start with Mario's old Kart, and continue with getting a FWD tail happy on a licence test, lofting the rear wheel, another Stingray for Keef, looming rally cars, a brace of red things with black bonnets, etc. I'll finish with an NSX-R that I built as a copy of a lovely looking thing that Novi posted on Facebook a few weeks ago.

Wow, awesome pics. :)

Ditto Bryan. :cool: I saved a whole lot of replays with the intent to take pics later, so i should probably do that soon before i have way too many replays like in GT5.

January 13th, 2014, 02:16 PM

Looks fantastic. :up: :up:

It would be so awesome to have a cherry, gold Stingray...

January 13th, 2014, 07:29 PM
I have a number of pics of a white Stingray coming soon for you Keith. ;)

January 14th, 2014, 08:06 PM

Merc SL 55 at Motegi, wasn't happy with any angle/photo i took, and this one was borderline (the only one i saved). May go back into that replay and try again when i'm not so tired/sleepy. I.e., not after midnight again. ;)

A lot of duplicate pics follow. Wasn't really happy with the realism of most of the Willow Springs photos (from one of the Missions), so ended up using a lot of filter effects. :/

Stingray bum

And again

Fail photo, half the car missing. ;)

Black and white



Black and White

Sepia or Warm

Cross Processing 1 (first time i've ever used any CP filter was in this photoshoot)

Not really happy with this one

Sideways (photo)

Was supposed to take this pic again, without the roof of the building on the left, but forgot to. :/

Oh yeah, the C5 was behind me. :up:

January 14th, 2014, 08:13 PM
The distance between us

Mmm, body roll

Another filter

And again

Looks kinda realish?

Bum again

Cross Processing 1

Warm filter

Most realistic photo i managed, only worked when i focussed on the ripple strip i think.

Initially had the camera focussed on the hills, to have a pic where the car was blurry from going by fast - but it never looked right, so changed the target to the car instead.

Sunglasses on...

Sunglasses off... ;)

January 14th, 2014, 08:21 PM
What the local wildlife (tumbleweed) sees.

Was supposed to delete this photo, as the C5 doesn't look that great unfocused?

Corvette vs Corvette. The Corvette won.

Tintin and Captain Haddock race across the moon in pursuit of yet another criminal mastermind. Thats seriously what the image reminds me of, ay. :D

Rare White Ape
January 14th, 2014, 11:22 PM
These two are quite good.

Go learn about "rule of thirds", that will make your photos much better straight away. Framing and composition has a surprisingly huge effect on photos; for instance, I would have framed the car in the photos below closer to the top-left, to allow more space for the motion of the road to give the impression of movement.

Bum again

Driving into the light

January 15th, 2014, 12:29 AM
Ah, yeah. I think it was the huge sun glare that attracted me to save those photos, and i'm not sure if i tried it without the glare.

Just did a quick read on Wiki about Rule of thirds, and it almost seems like i'm starting to naturally head in that direction (sometimes). I'm finding that objects don't always look that great when they are right in the centre of the photo, so usually try put them to one side.

Kinda like these, from my photography Facebook page (link in sig); https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/1558572_608863542496019_1061439961_n.jpg

Oh, and if any of you peeps edit your GT6 photos with anything other than the in game camera settings (i.e. Photoshop, MS Paint etc), please state so. Incase one of us tries to replicate your photo and blows up in frustration after it comes out looking nothing like it. ;)

January 19th, 2014, 12:32 AM
Can I also suggest a maximum of, say, 10 pictures per post? That way this thread won't slow down 4+ year old computers as each page gets more than 25 replies.

The vast majority of my photos simply have levels or color balance adjustments. Usually pretty subtle.

Whoever took those FT-1 promotional photos is very good. :o

My latest batch to get processed:



This Matterhorn S2000 time trial was fun with the AP2. Crazy with the AP1.



Super fast online room. Mostly GTA national finalists. This is the (smokey) start of a race with Shelby GT500s on Comfort tires. At SSR5 where there are many acceleration zones out of low speed corners. Much fun was had!






This color seemed striking on the S2k. Good for scenic photos...



...and massive curb-hopping back at the Matterhorn. :)

January 19th, 2014, 02:35 AM
Let us race with the top down PD!!!!

Nomnom to that first S2000 pic. :eek:

January 19th, 2014, 07:16 PM
Wait wait wait... I have to put these images on a USB stick to get them off my PS3 and onto the larger series of tubes? What is this archaic shite? Got damn. I just wanna text a cute girl a picture of her own car and say "hay im drivin ur car in da same colour lul". Now it has become the ultimate chore. Wah.

January 19th, 2014, 07:20 PM
Those first three red S2000 shots are :eek::shocker:

Who wanted to live out their Ayrton Senna in a Honda NSX-R at Suzuka fantasy?

All of you? Good. Now you can. Just go to the special outfits menu and right at the bottom you'll find Ayrton Senna 1998 :up:


I other news, I was stuffing about with open-top cockpit views and got a few neat results. Doing these are tricky.





And, oh look! Something for Keef!

Not your fault, but the grandstands, or the spectators there, seem out of scale.

The kart picture looks real, however.
And the sun through the woods is also very realistic.

Fortunately, dusk at Ascari worked out really well. One of my overall favorite shots.

I have some great shots from tonight of a Diablo GT at Ascari.. the dusk lighting can be magical and moody.

with Miniature filter… warmer without losing the vibrancy of color

Premiums look unbelieveable

February 28th, 2014, 08:23 AM
The only premium from the latest set is the TTS.
In fact the Supra is pretty crap from any angle other than the front... lots of jaggies around the window trim.
The Z and Series1 have been given the semi-premium upgrade

February 28th, 2014, 02:05 PM
Is the red Supra going over the yellow hash marks at the good old far-end near hairpin of Trial Mountain (normal)? Any monkeys, fishermen or monsters to be found?

March 5th, 2014, 03:17 PM
That's in between the 2 tunnels.
And yes there is still the monkey at Trial Mountain.
Not 100% sure about the fishermen and 'Nessie' though.

Especially matador.

May 2nd, 2014, 03:08 PM
Thanks for the compliment.
Matador??? The final kill; the trump = last photo?? That was probably my favorite from the last set.
'MX-5 at dusk' would have been my next choice. In a word, Serenity.

Anyway, here's a Bull for ya



A family reunion at Suzuka.




FR-S with first use of the custom spoiler add-on.
Works well with some cars. Still looks tacky with hatchbacks and a shame they only come in black.




And for this set's 'final kill'.
Ever see a cheetah take down a water buffalo? :cool:

May 18th, 2014, 03:37 AM
Are all your pics edited in game only? If so, i'm doing something wrong. ;)

Looking back, these photos are actually kinda crap online. Look WAY better on the PS3. :(

Rare White Ape
May 18th, 2014, 01:53 PM
Assuming photobucket doesn't compress the shitting bejesus out of the files, the photos should look exactly the same.

They look alright to me on my phone browser. Maybe you're used to the way your TV displays your games because it's set to be brighter and deeper with boosted colours etc. but you browse the net on a cheap monitor or something.

May 19th, 2014, 03:01 PM
All of mine are from in-game, no post editing.

Keep up the experimenting, you'll get it :)
Once you understand what the different results with the Filters (effects), Shutter speed and Panning (blur), F-Number (non-subject detail) and Exposure (brightness) values do you'll be ready to move on to concentrating on composition (Aspect Ratio, Focal Length (distance to subject), angles and placement of subject) .

The following set of 10 came out of 155 pics... and then I probably take anywhere from 3-5 minutes with each pic, taking multiple shots playing with the values and composition before saving what I like.

New set










May 19th, 2014, 06:05 PM
Those are some nice shots.
The one with the Ferrari and Camaro don't fit with the others. Just seem out of place. The closeups are very nice. :up:

I love the B&W Countach front the front.

Huayra is sooo fucking sexy.

May 19th, 2014, 10:59 PM
I think i'm gonna ditch Photobucket and just use my own webspace for the pics.

And my photos come out a lot brighter i think, so maybe that is my TV decieving me into thinking they are too dark?

And rwa, i'm using a 32" (?) full HD computer monitor for my compy, so its not the monitor. Jegatos pics come out incredible looking.

I do spend a little time trying to get the focus etc the way i want it, and trying to put the car off-centre in certain photos etc and trying to find the right balance of everything else, but obviously i don't spend quite as much time doing it as others do. ;)

A little bit of real world photography knowledge goes a long way.

Ironically, GT4 photo mode kinda sorta got me interested in real photography.

May 20th, 2014, 04:54 AM
I think i'm gonna ditch Photobucket and just use my own webspace for the pics.

Depending on what your own webspace is, your photos might load noticeably more slowly than photobucket, or, at least, inconsistently fast, and cause occasional delays when people bring up threads with your photos.

Just realized maybe you mean gtxforums.net album space, which can be done.

May 20th, 2014, 04:41 PM
Thanks for the compliments everyone.

SkylineO - my PS3 is hooked up to a 42" Visio with pretty much default brightness and color settings and I upload to Flickr for the pics. I may have the game's brightness level adjusted +1 but it doesn't seem to differ much from the final jpgs.

Godson - agree that the Huayra is sex on wheels to look at, but it can also be a devil to drive. With the two front shots above I particularly liked the way the bokeh came out with a impressionism like quality.

jimeez - yeah, the Camaro and GT-R don't exactly fit with the Ferrari but that was the line-up in that canned race. I just liked the way the light green track paint followed a nice swoosh into the Ferrari. Probably the least 'realistic' shot out of that set.

Edit: more...

Photobucket is definitely the cause of the lack of sharpness to them at the least. :/

I actually think they look a bit better on my GTSC Facebook page? https://www.facebook.com/GTSeriesCenter

Feel even better when others appreciate the shot.

Hah, truth. Apt description as well :up:

June 14th, 2014, 07:00 PM
Comparing my photos to yours, something is definitely amiss, as i mentioned earlier. On my PS3/TV my photos look exactly like yours in terms of colour depth, sharpness and brightness. Maybe i have the TV, PS3 or game set too bright/dark or something. :/

And am investigating Flickr as i type this...

Contemplating removing all my photos and reposting them if they come out better, or trying to improve them to the PS3 quality in an image editing programme (in terms of brightness).

June 22nd, 2014, 05:39 AM
Hmmm, on Flickr now and the sharpness issues have gone, which improves the pics a lot. Not gonna bother reposting them all though, so just clicky for my page; https://www.flickr.com/photos/124652807@N07/

Latest batch. I'm trialling making the pics slightly darker now to try improve them, and also adjusted tv, PS3 and GT6 visual settings too.
The orange Mustang (which used to be the green one) and the El Camino pics were done after i tried playing with the TV etc settings.

I think this is where i maybe started making the photos a bit darker, or it could have been the green Mustang pics (which turned into the orange Mustang later, after wifey said her one was green too).

Sadly, all these Merc pics look better on the PS3.

I'm hopelessly addicted to being sideways, maybe it comes with Skyline ownership? I have a very unhealthy obsession with being sideways in videogames anyway, lost quite a few races or had many crashes/spins because of this. Any game with cars pretty much. :D

Now the pics after i adjusted TV, PS3 and GT6 settings. If there is actually any difference at all.

Green Mustang went to the shop and got some bitz added, and a new coat of paint too (they forgot the gloss coat though)

And my first play on the A1-Ring/Red Bull Ring was in this high rise apar... car. Naturally it was way overpowered. And sideways.

I got the update on the weekend and took this for a spin.


It's a sweet looking and sounding car, but I wonder why they modelled the '12 car and not the '14 and not in Le Mans spec. But ah well. It is a bit understeery so it loves to be flicked hard into tricky tight corners like the esses at Le Mans, like a go-kart. Get the tail moving and drive it across the apex!



And I'm pretty much chuffed that they added the Red Bull Ring to the game. The track is still as good and fun as it was back in 1997 on my Nintendo 64. It is a stupendously beautiful part of Austria, Hitler's birth country.

Well, the 2014 car is a TS040, a completely new (though similar looking) car. Thought I think the 2013 TS030 did have the low lose like the TS040, so they could have done that. I am annoyed like you that it has a high downforce set up though, with the dive planes. It should have the Le Mans bodywork.

I gave it a quick spin around the A1 ring the other night and enjoyed it, but boy is it difficult to see out off. The eye position just seems off or something. I know it's hard to see out of in real life, but I feel like I'm eating the steering wheel.

I guess they just skipped out on modelling the complex ERS, and just went with a full engine+electic power version of an engine?

All that coding already exists as part of the modelling for the Prius, does it not?

I'm not too familiar with how the TS030 operates in which mode, but I do remember the freaky pit lane video way early in development where the car took off silently then had the engine start at pit lane exit.

BTW Skyline Obsession your photos are looking heaps better now. I'd say they look shitty on your 'pooter because it has a shitty monitor. Try hooking it up to your tv to compare.

Ditto that.. your shots are looking a lot better SkylineO :up:

This place has died down a fair bit lately. Do you all have lives or something? ;)

Here are some photos of a NZGamer.com Thursday night race night race (say that ten times fast) which Peril told me about (not that i've seen him at any of the races yet). It is usually close, clean racing with lots of funny banter between those who have microphones and even my wife races with us now too.

These are pics from last Thursday when we were racing the Civic Touring car at Autumn Ring reverse.

Reverse Grid Start (i screwed up in the previous race and lost the front pack), me in the reddy/pinky car, wifey in the army greenish coloured car (worst colour she could find for it).

To no avail however, as SkylineObsession (that's me) had secretly installed an NSX V6 engine into his Civic just before the race

Which subsequently destroyed itself right at the finish line on the last lap, causing the car to go into a wild spin

That looks like ridiculously good fun. Spec racing ftw!

SkylineObsession - you've come along way. Some of those are nice :up:

Thanks. :)

I think i've come to the conclusion that my TV is too bright (despite it not seeming so), as darkening all the images and putting them on compy seems to align them to the same level of lighting as your pics more often than not.

Well it's that time of week again (they've asked me to do this wee post race slideshow every week now)
So far i've only taken pics of the first race, but have saved three other race replays so may do a quick roundup of them. I say quick, but if the replay looks too photogenic i may end up taking far too many pics.

Eight of us joined the lobby last night, with a new guy who i invited along.

First race was at Laguna Seca. I pulled out the quickest qualifying lap out of my secret pocket (didn't even know i had a secret pocket, oddly enough) so started at the front of the pack. But lost the lead not long after...

To confuse and disorientate my enemi..... uhhh, opponents, i created a smoke screen
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3873/14738953042_658888de08_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osqZf3)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_16 (https://flic.kr/p/osqZf3)

It didn't work sadly. They were still right behind me. :(

They ran out of Lexus helmets, so this guy went for the next best thing

While these fellas opted for the cone challenge instead
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2923/14552574060_0008e2c790_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaXKgj)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_19[/url

Due to a faulty decal (peeling off), i had lost a lot of hp (it was a Type R sticker obviously) and was rapidly being caught
[url=https://flic.kr/p/oudhxz]https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2901/14759107783_bc269a781b_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaXKgj)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_20 (https://flic.kr/p/oudhxz)

Further back, another player had spotted a lost cat just as he was heading up the hill towards the corkscrew, so quickly pulled over to save it - thus sacrificing his race. The cat community thanked him for his efforts, and they passed on a message to him for helping it: "Meow, mrowl!". Think that means "Thanks bro."?
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5596/14739245915_8326f6ba25_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ossuiz)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_21 (https://flic.kr/p/ossuiz)

Sadly, on the run up the hill my decals suddenly came off the car at an absurd rate (last time i use PVA glue) and they even tore off the paint and pretty much everything else on the car too, to the point where i had no steering, no braking, no engine, no cookies, no sound and no way to get home (map dissolved as well). You could say i was i was a ghost.

July 25th, 2014, 12:47 AM
The race had a new leader, and they were all following him. Those are the rules, remember?
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3852/14552611279_5273a84fc7_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaXWk2)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_23 (https://flic.kr/p/oaXWk2)

His garage got a great deal on yellow paint
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5561/14738955002_10093c849a_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osqZPQ)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_24 (https://flic.kr/p/osqZPQ)

Heading into lap two, this guy suddenly slammed his brakes on and came to a complete stop on the front straight when he saw another players Lexus evaporating away on the side of the track. Almost instantaneously though, the prospect of not getting first place forced him back into the race leaving the semi visible car to it's own.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3857/14738955542_32b6390950_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osqZZ9)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_25 (https://flic.kr/p/osqZZ9)

What are two Lexus cars called? Lexus's? Lexii? Tlexus?
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3851/14716240786_2610ab9a73_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oqqzFq)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_26 (https://flic.kr/p/oqqzFq)

Three corners later, the yellow and gold cars were still driving side by side. Perhaps not realising it was a race? Or both guys were feeling over courteous and always wanted to let the other guy take the corner first. Who knows. Not us. Not them. And not that old guy you saw today either.
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2932/14552791857_5d34ffa8ab_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaYS1r)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_27 (https://flic.kr/p/oaYS1r)

1 lap later and still in the lead. Orange is the new red it seems.
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2917/14759109963_03f0e96b24_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oudica)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_28 (https://flic.kr/p/oudica)

At the new back of the field (remember the invisible green car, and the good samartian helping the kitty cat) SkylineObsession had retrieved his stickers/paint/cookies and put them all back on the car with a nailgun full of screws (???), and was starting to eat his way through the field. And the cookies.
Here, you will observe him in front of the newcomer. Notice the damage to the front of Skylines' car though - turns out some stickers needed a bit more 'persuasion' to stay on the car. And have you also noticed that my descriptions for these images are particularly long today?

July 25th, 2014, 12:52 AM
In a sudden fit of insanity, the leader appeared to try take a shortcut, but milliseconds later (after this image was taken) he wisely changed his mind and turned back onto the track, still keeping the lead from a stunned second place racer.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3901/14736884624_43af3035d4_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osfonE)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_30 (https://flic.kr/p/osfonE)

A whole lap later the driver of the gold chrome ISF eventually had enough of being courteous and planted it. Perhaps the approaching screwed up damaged grey Lexus played a part in that decision.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3869/14736073061_8a0aae8bb2_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osbe8c)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_31 (https://flic.kr/p/osbe8c)

The leaders's cars were starting to look angry. Not sure why, but red can be an aggressive colour. However, there is a chance that the cars have always looked this angry because that is how the designers made them, but to be honest that's just hearsay.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5562/14552577590_4d43718a90_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaXLjb)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_32 (https://flic.kr/p/oaXLjb)

Clearly angry. So i'm not sure why they are now attempting the courteous approach earlier made by other players.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5580/14552793097_d8f913d619_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaYSnP)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_33 (https://flic.kr/p/oaYSnP)

Out of the blue came the grey Lexus, but the yellow Lexus wasn't giving up without a fight. The chrome gold one though was nowhere to be seen
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3921/14552793257_17da4686dd_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oaYSqz)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_34 (https://flic.kr/p/oaYSqz)

The track managers and a few mechanics idling about the track treated the hero to a free car service for saving the fluffy widdle kitty cat.

The rest stood shoulder to shoulder in a guard of honour. We're all animal lovers, deep down. :)

July 25th, 2014, 12:55 AM
OH COME ON!!! Enough of this courteous rubbish, just pass him! Or you pass him. Not not you, you.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5584/14736886324_83d8360122_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osfoSY)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_37 (https://flic.kr/p/osfoSY)

Oooohhhh, i see. Orange was fooling red. Right before the finish line on the last lap he suddenly gunned it and won the race. Sneaky...
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3862/14738958822_29c2461fca_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/osr1XG)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_38 (https://flic.kr/p/osr1XG)

Dirty screwy Lexus was still attempting to pass the yellow bumblebee. Could he do so now that they were on the finish straight? Surely not! He's dreaming! :D
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5586/14739250555_46bcd8df8a_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ossvFz)Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca_39 (https://flic.kr/p/ossvFz)

What the i don't even. This is what 0.007 looks like. "Lexus. James Lexus".

After adjusting the set, the result was the same.

Somehow the gold ISF had stopped and hidden somewhere when he saw the approaching grey damaged Lexus, and he finished that far ahead of the newcomers orange Lexus.

Excellent work SkylineObsession!!! Both the pics and the narration :up:

July 28th, 2014, 10:50 PM
Thanks. ;) It's the humour i started using on the Gran Turismo Series Centers' Facebook page when i uploaded pics, but have only just started doing so on forums.

And here's a wee blurb from the second race of that night;

Well all the racers who were with us on Laguna Seca decided to come back and try it all again on another track, this time at Willow Springs early in the morning.

No-one could be bothered lining up properly on the starting grid however, so it looked a bit haphazard and as you can see a few cars still hadn't warmed up yet (smoke).
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3858/14750264266_2bf0058bbc_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otqXF9)

We're all equal when you take away colours and other distinguishing features. Peace to all you brothers (and sisters and second cousins)
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5561/14773275345_2660565878_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovsU4T)

Six and a half cars wide at one point. Some needed more racing room than others, so made their own track.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3857/14586790627_b9b6112cec_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/odZ7E8)

Sadly, this was the beginning of the end. This green car retired shortly after. As did every other car in the race eventually - NO-ONE, finished...
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2907/14772935532_f068fc41c6_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovra43)

In the west part of the track, the springs in the green car suddenly uncoiled themselves and damaged the car too much to continue. DNF #1 of 8
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3899/14586791317_5050efac53_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/odZ7S2)

The black car for some reason decided to drive away into the sunset. Despite it being morning only a few corners back. DNF #2 of 8
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3901/14773276545_d5bec27812_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovsUqz)

Yet again i suffered a huge engine failure, which locked the back wheels and put me into a fast and dangerous backwards slide. DNF #3 of 8
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5558/14793143673_cfaa1b8a70_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oxdJeg)

July 28th, 2014, 11:03 PM
The driver of this car broke the GOLDen rule... DNF #4 of 8
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2922/14586792717_b5a69128fb_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/odZ8ha)

Whereas this guy completely lost focus. Last seen heading towards Belgium. DNF #5 of 8
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2924/14770918464_c203e0dcbb_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovfPs1)

An excessive amount of downforce spelled the end of the race for this guy, since he lost the ability to steer with wheels in the air - the pic is right there, if you actually care. To be fair, he had no fear, of the pear right here that appears to hear what you sheer for hair and gear the tier and ........ i'm running out of rhyming words - thank me later, this coulda gone on for a while. DNF#6 of 8
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3849/14770918434_a55d398dac_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovfPru)

If you thought things were already a bit absurd, what about this guy and his alien abduction? DNF #7 of 8
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2931/14793145623_a4cf2aab65_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oxdJNT)

Finally, the sole remaining racer got spooked off and out of the race by the ghost of the green Lexus, and since ghosts can fly, there was no escaping it. DNF #8 of 8
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3900/14770104581_d9cbc95119_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovbDvx)

Let us never speak of this again...

July 28th, 2014, 11:18 PM
And now for the pictures that didn't make the cut (weren't good enough for my story).

It was a colourful day in Dullsville, OH.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5557/14586789407_9152476dfb_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/odZ7i6)

An orange car. It isn't turquoise.
https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2922/14793145283_bc3cce2213_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oxdJH2)

Cornering around a corner. Later on he straighted down a straight.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3909/14586570120_7c4dacac12_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/odXZ7h)

And another pic, incase you missed it the first time.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3872/14773279605_ec303c63f0_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/ovsVkk)

Five or six races into our three race weekly event, the final four had a massive one lap battle on the Nordschleife. Don't know what made it 'massive', but it sounds good when you say it.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3884/14793146873_d52dacf291_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oxdKbr)

Two corners after this shot was taken, the green car headed into the deep dark forest never to be seen again. Everyone else just carried on like nothing happened.

Well it's been two weeks since my last weekly NZGamer.com race report (missed one night, and just didn't take pics of the other one) so here goes again. Last Thurs it was NASCAR night, but we opted to throw in Tsukuba and Suzuka as well as an oval track.

Hopefully i don't run out of funny (if i don't find it funny, then i don't think it is funny - funny that).

The more times i write the word funny, the weirder the word funny actually looks.


Oh, yeah the pix.

Right. You can get a pretty accurate sense of how things may turn out when you're racing NASCAR's on a track with more than two or three corners.

They call out the National Guard...
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5579/14752941377_89d8335a6a_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otEFue)

Which is understandable, even the cars themselves are a wild clash of colours, number, logos and African Wild Hamsters. And don't get me started on the drivers... (mainly because i wouldn't know where to start).
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3864/14939500755_0a17418d75_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9R6e)

GUESS WHAT. The race has just started. SkylineObsession is spinning his wheels. If you just said 'thats nothing new/typical', you win a prize.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5568/14752825029_4f4dcc577d_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otE5Ue)

This Ford had the brightest chance of winning the race. The driver is a colourful character.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3880/14939501665_199d35c267_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9RmV)

Me sideways yet again. I swear i've never seen a straight line in my life. ~~~~~~~~
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3858/14939140682_b95dca06be_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL8145)

In a fit of pure rage, the blue Chevy driver shot out one of my rear tyres because he was getting sick of driving through my smokescreen around every corner.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3846/14936416051_1c9cf1dd92_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oKT37F)

The tone of the race had just turned very dark, and colour was riding in the back seat. Welcome to NASCAR. Jeff Gordon car 1 of 3 took the opportunity to pass a wildly laughing (formerly) blue Chevy due to SkylineObsession's massive loss of control.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3915/14939142182_522214d50c_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL81uW)

August 16th, 2014, 05:46 PM
With the colour slowly returning the rest of the field was still relatively close.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3921/14752833770_0791b67ff3_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otE8uW)

Well, most of us. Car 88 had some urgent business to attend to which delayed his race start; Fourteen people 'liked' his Facebook status declaring the race had started.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5574/14939503885_c7fa03618f_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9S2c)

Wifey tried to take a shortcut, but used the wrong side of the track to do so. The Ford was really trying not to laugh.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3913/14752834920_5f5b6f508f_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otE8QL)

Jeff Gordon cars number 1 and 3 were trying to make a blue Chevrolet sandwich, while in the background 'you know who' was just coming onto the front straight in his usual fashion.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3921/14939504745_71a3559926_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9Sh2)

The fire crews at the track constantly rushed to the protected forest by the main straight, but the smoke was being caused by something else, every. single. lap.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3922/14752836380_0cd1e9ae1f_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otE9gW)

Meanwhile, not much had changed at the front. There were still three cars ahead of the guy in fourth place.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3836/14939505995_b1dc33f812_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9SDz)

These guys weren't driving to end hunger, they were frantically trying to get as far away as possible from the smokescreen that was following them. Lest we forget those who remained behind it. They're in there somewhere. Poor souls.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5569/14939507325_b93020ddab_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9T3v)

August 16th, 2014, 05:49 PM
A strong desire for M&M's meant SkylineObsession was pushing the car really hard to catch the colourful treats which were somehow attached to the car ahead of him. And really, really big.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3898/14939506855_70489e8942_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9SUp)

Things were a bit bland at the front of the pack.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3850/14752893648_96a66066ef_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otErij)

The M&Mmobile and the Farmableford suddenly reverted back to oval track spec NASCAR's, and refused to turn even the slightest of uncambered curves.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3865/14752839110_4b77ded6f5_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otEa61)

The Ford was taking no prisoners, so the M&M's were pushed to the side - this was a race, no time for snacks.
Translation on the sign reads: Wkid effi khdnswi oue udjs je~! (sorry, i'm not too good at reading Japanese :( )
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3841/14752894808_f05760de87_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otErDj)

JG 1 of 3 was still triumphantly ahead of blueChev. He's got it. There is nothing at all that could go wrong now, the win is his! Why are you getting so suspicious that the next image will be of a Jeff Gordon car spinning? There are three of them in this race remember, what are the chances of it being the one right at the front!

Oh. Quite a good chance apparently. I can now see why you had suspicions that this may occur. Oh well, the race had a new leader now!

Elsewhere on the track my_zx6rr's Camry was quite unused to braking and cornering, so much so that a fire started to develop around the front wheels. The only express service this car was going to get was being sprayed with 11 small fire extinguishers.

The Jeff Gordon car 3 of 3's newly acquired second position in The Amazing Race was now in Jeopardy, with the Wheels Of Fortune not looking too flash, and would likely result in the Sale Of The Century when the car is sold to Spongebob Squarepants later on, surely adding to the Fear Factor of the upcoming 'Spin City' which you'll see beginning below this comment.
(my original comment for this pic was going to be how he's taking a shortcut to get into 1st, but that comment was the Weakest Link and wouldn't make it to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, especially since he isn't hosting it anymore, so i took it Step By Step to avoid a Full House of Angry Birds giving me and my F.r.i.e.n.d.s 60 Minutes to restore some sort of Law and Order to The Bold And The Beautiful world of the Lost Community of Ice Road Truckers. Who have nothing to do with GT6 by the way)

I decided to try some dirty driving, only problem was that i was the only one around me, so it didn't really do any good.

Ford vs Holden, the American version. Mr Chevy was determined to keep Mr Ford behind him.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5557/14916512506_6b6238d23c_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oJ82u7)

But it wasn't to be, the Ford was just so much more awesome than the Holde.... Chevrolet. I'm not a Ford fan either. Not at all.

Even though it was the Camry on fire, the strange thing was that all the smoke was coming from Jeff Gordon car 2 of 3. It baffled the scientists watching the race more than the pure bafflement they had as to why they were there in the first place. And scientists are very smrt. Smart.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5588/14939512225_8d000a7f73_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oL9UuZ)

At this point the firefighters had had enough of all the false alarms, and had returned home.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3835/14752842530_2d0c39bcc7_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/otEb6Y)

Knowing the Ford was better than his Hol... Chevrolet, the non-Ford driver decided that he had no choice other than to take drastic (but completely normal for NASCAR) action, and helped the Ford return to the farmland.

And finally, SkylineObsession was getting so extreme with his drift angles that he ended up drifting backwards over the start finish line on the last lap. Fourty new tyre companies started up just for this race, and they all ended up profitable.

Further back, another player had spotted a lost cat just as he was heading up the hill towards the corkscrew, so quickly pulled over to save it - thus sacrificing his race. The cat community thanked him for his efforts, and they passed on a message to him for helping it: "Meow, mrowl!". Think that means "Thanks bro."?

Lost cat? Are you just trying to see if anybody's actually reading?

August 18th, 2014, 09:36 PM
Nope, thats just how i could explain to everyone why that car wasn't in the race anymore. :) I don't take some things too seriously. ;)

Completely off topic things are nothing new for me (ignore the urls, its the page descriptions on them i'm referring to);

Another week has passed, so here are more photos. If you like playing golf you'll especially like these photos of Golfs. :)

This is where we started the race from. They call this odd formation a 'starting grid'.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5562/15015404855_d99215ba82_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRSJB)

The ground camera was quite dirty.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3848/14828759000_584740f803_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAngqC)

Only a few of us opted to paint our race numbers on in black paint, the rest annoyingly used invisible ink. So as a payback i used invisible ink when it came time to writing down their payment for racing! Which mea... Hold on a sec, getting a message through the intercom from race control. ... What? ... Are you sure? ... So. ... Well. Turns out we didn't actually pay anyone for entering/racing, so obviously couldn't have written their pay amount in invisible ink. What did i write with it then?

*At my 21st birthday party later that night*

Why has no-one turned up? It started two and a half hours ago! I'm sure i wrote down the right directions, even have the pen right he.... OH CRAP!!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3866/14828759510_5927c028cc_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAngzq)

There was an excessive amount of magpies during the race, and they even resulted in the race starting an hour and 45 minutes later than normal (if it normally started an hour and 45 minutes after 8:30pm, but it doesn't, so the race started at 8:30 again). This was eventually put down to the three silver chrome cars in the race, aaaand also the billionaires poker game being held in the clubrooms.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5570/14828786228_cf3d11bce7_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnpw5)

This flower was not chrome however, so the magpies and the billionaires left it alone.

During the shiney race, the chrome was reflected in a shine for chromey bling with lots of reflect.

While the track zig zagged up the hill in the background, the cars simply went straight past the camera.

This shiny chrome car was up the front of the field, blinding everyone else behind because of the clean, shiny reflections from this shiny car.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3885/14828788648_514bfce100_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnqeN)

Actually no. It was following a cleaner, shinier, chromier, reflectier car which was much more shiny, or rather in the lead because of its chrome shine.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3888/14992411706_719693717b_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oQQ2F1)

It was... shinier even than the sky... and the sky was even shinier when it ... was reflected on the shiney ... chrome car which was ... incredibly shine.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3884/15015045122_d418212f17_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ2Nj)

AAAAAGGHH!!! Where did this completely unshiney car come from!! It's got no chrome at all! What's the deal!! *takes a few breaths* Humblest apologies people, these chrome cars just mesmerized me to the point of losing concentration on everything. Poor magpies have it tough. As does my drool covered keyboard. :(
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3923/14828686989_969f729731_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAmU24)

Back at the front, things were moving. Well truth be told, they have been since the race started, but my point is that they were STILL moving.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3837/14828881307_2537153716_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnTMn)

So fast that the ground was being forced towards the Golf's's's's like a vacuum effect.

Seventeen wide into a tight 90 degree or so chicane simply doesn't work. Especially when you can only have 16 car fields, and only four or five were approaching this corner at the same time.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5551/15015048162_13fdd36345_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ3GJ)

All nine racers are visible in this shot. Most of them are turning left. No, your right, my left. No not your left, my left but your right which is right by the left side of your right hand. Alright? Oh... you've left.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3915/15015412765_e4bb6cb395_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRV5Z)

OI! Stop, so i can get a better photo! I can't magically hang over you forever!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3862/15015413145_172c52bdd0_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRVcx)

Thank you. Much better. See, wasn't so hard, was it? You can go now. I need to fall to the ground.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3872/14992418636_52ddc83f74_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oQQ4Ju)

The chromers were busy reflecting on their race progress thus far, which enabled a couple of the non chrombies to take the lead.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5580/15015052252_84fda0b47c_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ4Vf)

However it appeared the chromemeisters had something up their sleeve, they were starting to drive together as a group...
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3835/15015416115_d58422024e_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRW5K)

Still sitting back, biding their time. Waiting for an opportune moment to dazzle the leaders with 'The Chrome Effect', their secret weapon which became not so secret after they'd leaked to Wikipedia during the race which is how i know about it already, before they've had the chance to implement it.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5589/14828887527_b138b41a49_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnVCB)

August 23rd, 2014, 11:52 PM

The Chrome Effect was suddenly used with full force, projecting one of the chromefidels up a few places, straight into the lead! This could have serious consequences for the race results! Someone contact the authorities!!
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5576/15015054782_f38711c6a2_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ5ES)

NOW things are getting interesting, somehow the blue and gold Golfs have broken through The Chrome Effect affected leader and regained their places at the front. They're fighting back, the chromeblasters won't be happy about this!
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5595/15015055672_6ff90da42a_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ5Wd)

OOoooohhh, wait a sec. They have almost completely surrounded the Golf Gold! Uh, i mean gold Golf. Could they be resorting to The Chrome Effect II? Surely not - that was banned decades ago for the sheer destruction it caused! Can they do this?! The orangy red Golf appears to be trying to block their attempt, will this blocking maneuver be enough?!?!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3901/15015056412_b25b46a68d_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ69Y)

Number 7 is driving as close as possible! Protecting number 5 from The Chrome Effect II's sheer danger!! Lets hope this works out people, the last time this happened, in 1979, the world was left in shock and some countries are still cleaning up the mess!!! We can't allow this to happen again!!!!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3862/14828697859_48d072f985_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAmXft)

IT WORKED!!! Number 7, the orangeyred Golf has averted disaster and the race is back on again! One of the chromeboogeys has even developed the common 'chromeshow.exe' error (which affects the chrome vehicles contact ability) and is driving right through another chromemishmasher! If this error continues, The Chrome Effect II cannot work, as it needs three chrome cars with full contact ability! They must have really been going for it if they managed to force this error!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3854/14828775800_d893b7c610_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnmqh)

It has left the leader feeling a bit blue (da ba dee, da ba die), but he'll surely be thinking of his fellow non chromians and of ways to combat the chromejesters' potential future attacks!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3840/14828801078_7cf190d785_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAntW7)

Back into formation again. The chromebalites are likely thinking of their next move, but it won't take much at all for Chrome Effect II to be re-attempted, given the position of the yellow Golf!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3906/15015422095_17d2867ec0_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRXRR)

August 24th, 2014, 12:34 AM
Just tuned in? They are still traversing around this really long radius corner. Wait a few seconds and they should be almost clear of it.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5561/15015422475_d1f5852115_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRXYp)


WOAAHHH, they used The Chrome Effect for a second time!! But wait, it appears that it was a partially faulty application as the gold Golf got bought up the front instead of the third chromeagillyians car! This error has only been seen twice before, and the diagnoses both times was that 'TCE' was used at over 100% of its recommended force! These chromesingsongers are furiously battling for the win! This is nuts!! I need something better than popcorn for this!!!
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5582/15015423775_408744f83b_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRYmP)

Yep, clear as day from another angle - the overloaded Chrome Effect definitely caused the wrong car to be transported! They will not be happy!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3921/15012342041_5b89e010bf_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSAbgt)

End of the race! The chromepeicebenders fail in their 1 2 3 attempt and get 1st, 3rd and 5th instead! You have to give credit where credit is due though, they definitely gave it a shot at a podium chromefest, but crafty opponents and a still faulty Chrome Effect system just let them down too much. Next time then guys, but please - don't attempt Chrome Effect II ever again. You're too young to remember what it did last time but i can assure you that those chromeexploders would have regretted that decision had they lived to see what it did.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5555/14828803258_6072c9a46b_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnuzG)

Having been left behind from the shockwaves of The Chrome Effect, the number 7 Golf finished in 6th place, this far behind the leaders;
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3849/15015060732_a4ef3bc141_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSQ7rs)

The second blue Golf was wary of the three chromealabasters from the first time he laid eyes on them, so kept a steady pace near the back of the field. In hindsight it was a good choice, as he didn't get caught up in the chaos at the front of the field.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3906/14828779230_4ef9a1358f_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oAnnrq)

While right at the back, the matte green Golf had been off the pace for a few laps, while searching the pits and sides of the track for the purple number 83 Golf which hadn't been seen for ages.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3881/15015424605_165b684bec_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oSRYB8)

Suspicions and a post race investigation discovered some shocking news as to the whereabouts of the purple Golf. The chromesplashbackers had removed it from the race, with the dangerous Chrome Effect IV...

With whom and when do you partake in these spec races?

And would you maybe occasionally accept an entry from a boorish Aussie with an overinflated sense of speed?

August 25th, 2014, 11:54 AM

Every Thursday at 8pm we start practicing, then at 8:30pm we start the first of three races. Usually four or so laps depending on the track length. No aids other than ABS. Etc etc. I'll PM the guy and ask if you can join, it was actually Peril who told me about it. :)

August 25th, 2014, 03:50 PM
Cool, thanks. I'll have a look this week.

August 25th, 2014, 11:08 PM
No worries. It's normally only Kiwis racing, at least all the times i've been entering anyway. And it's held in a private room too, so you'd have to friend request the room host.

EDIT: PM'ed. :)

August 30th, 2014, 08:00 PM
Hokey Pokey, it's that time of week again - goody goody gum drops!
To add a taste of french vanilla to the mix, here are the photos from last weeks race. No idea who is who for the most part, so i'll probably make it up. And i've also covered all three official races in a mint flavoured topping an.. uh, i mean covered all three races, while only taking pics from the first lap each time.

Early in the morning of Thursday the 28th of August 2014, at about 8:30pm, we all gathered around the start line at Laguna Seca. Since we all reside in New Zealand, it was a bit of a trek, and some of us took the long way and got rather wet (it was later we found out that we could have used a plane or a boat).
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5593/15056270026_aa8876668b_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oWtjww)

It was only the front runners who had colour cars, as the rest of us couldn't afford it. Funnily enough, the black and white cars were the ones that drove from New Zealand to California.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5593/15079284415_d2873482cf_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYvgUk)

These two cars are orange and red. Well, ones orange and one is red. The front one being red and not orange, and the back one being orange and not red. Which means that the oran.... oh for crying out loud, just look at the picture!
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3895/15078924192_0e3f186077_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYtqPA)

The camerapersonmanwomanthing was bored while waiting for us to arrive up the hill, so started taking photos of anything. This is a miniature forest. Or a full sized forest if you're a spider. Are you a spider? How many words per minute can you do?
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3874/14892732087_8f8b34c205_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG29oT)

Finally a couple of cars turned up, so he/she/it took a photo of them.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5573/15076264821_06061e0731_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYeNhn)

Then he started running after them to grab this photo.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3841/15076265341_db981a97ab_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYeNrk)

But then she tripped on her undone shoelace and snapped this photo as she landed.

August 30th, 2014, 08:05 PM
Later in the day, about 10-15 seconds after the last photo was taken, it grabbed a photo of this car. Well, it took the photo first, then it somehow grabbed it with its hand despite it being in a virtual digital camera in a virtual game. Bah, it doesn't matter. No not that it, it it. No, it. The other it. It isn't a laughing matter. IT, isn't not IT. IT! GGGGRRRRR!!!! The other freaking IT! I.T.! Not IT!! BLLLLLAAAARRRRRGGGGG!!!!!!!! *APLODES*

After a few more hours, the last two cars (probably) finally conquered the corkscrew. Because they were the same colour as the surroundings though, they kept bumping into things. THIS IS WHY COLOUR WAS INVENTED.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3871/15078925782_dd54d1b737_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYtri1)

Meanwhile elsewhere in the world, two of the other cars (a colour one and a poor uncolour one) got lost and somehow ended up in a cities botanical gardens.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3842/14892702038_f241756969_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG1ZsN)

The winner of the race (well, the first lap anyway) was a racer from Renaults Team Lotus in the Gran Turismo Red Bull Junior car. Due to a confusing naming system, and manufacturer double ups, the car was never produced in a road legal version. The situation is still with the justice system in the courts, 17 months later. Although the confusion has played a part in that too. They're using tennis courts...
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3912/14892593419_265b3d26ea_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG1rb4)

Volkswagen also laid a claim to the car - which obviously didn't help the situation, and resulted in another law suit. Yeah you got it, they got confused again. The 'lawsuit' is still at the tailors waiting to be adjusted...
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3838/14892734687_5902b68c54_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG2aaH)

After eight weeks, or maybe eight minutes (quite similar, so hard to tell which was longer) all of the racers, and the non racers (?), turned up on the other side of the world again, this time at Silverstone in the United Kingdom of silver stones (just a guess?). But they'd got the wrong track, so ended up driving ALL the way to *censored* where Grand Valley Speedway is located.
This is what happened at the first corner. Shocking, i know.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3841/14892734947_5cb05f7840_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG2afc)

Not everybody bothered to clean their car, and the front runners were running quite rich, leaving disgusting smoke in their trail.

August 30th, 2014, 08:07 PM
After everyone stopped at the temporary pit stop on the first corner (which included a free car wash by the local kids who were fundraising for their school - it wasn't thought through very well by the organiser...) the cars were running much better, looking much better and sounding much better. If you can't hear them, please keep increasing the volume on your speakers until you can.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3880/14892735627_7735899794_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oG2arV)

The leader of the race was incredibly focussed, more so than anyone else. Yes, i know i've used that joke before, but YOU try come up with something sharper. HA! Got you again! :P

The main motivation for the drivers to continuously drive is the fear that the bull will give them a new head ornament, or hornament if you want to be more accurate.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3843/15076268691_221529a079_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/oYePr6)

While one car tried to disguise itself as a mountain on the side of the track, another car carried on into the impending storm

Sadly, the driver of this car had failed to put oil in it and that has resulted in the engine blowing. Instead, he'd put oil all over it. Probably in frustration after failing to find the engine bay.

This car was storming away from the field. But had somehow picked up a light pole which was now attached to the car behind the drivers head.

When cars of the same colour race together, they get an extra 10% boost in speed, and 42 per cent of the race winnings from the winner. If they win instead, they get nothing. It isn't an ideal system, but what can you do!

A massive chunk of the sales of these prototype cars actually got sold to farmers and the like, to be used to cut their wheat fields, grassy paddocks and such.

These cars were going the right way.

All the bulls were attached to cars today, leaving the paddocks empty and bear. I mean beer. Bair? *sigh*

The Red Bull driver gives a friendly nod and a wave to the idiotic cameraman standing on the track.

After yet another trip to the United Kingdom of united kings, the racers once again needed a clean. That shortcut through the siberian tar pit wasn't such a good idea after all.

The grass cutters were still quite bunched up during the first lap.

The black McLaren and the red Ferrari cars continued the confusing array of manufacturers claiming to 'own' the Gran Turismo Red Bull Junior cars.

The red cars decided to join forces thinking that the combined power would help them take the win. But they didn't know that red cars are only faster when it is a red car, not a red twocarsjoinedtogethertomakeoneredcar.

This car was painted with the same colours as the Silverstone pit complex. Which you'd see if you actually looked at the picture instead of reading this. Aaaannnd yet you're still reading. Still reading. Still... Do you even care about the photo? Well it's not obvious, as you're plainly not looking at the image. I know for a fact you're still reading this.

The creepy car stalker was hiding in the shadows in order to snap a photo of the top secret race cars which had already travelled pretty much around the world despite being top secret. But then he got discovered...

By this guy. Who promptly stopped the race, leaving the New Zealanders stranded in the UK. Can they make it back to NZ before next Thursday? Are they going to drive back or fly/ship back? What should i have for lunch today, and how much should i spend? How many eggs can fit into an egg basket? Why are there so many questions and not enough photos?

This hasn't been my best work humour wise, but blame our dying modem and waiting two years for it to load pages, and images it's already loaded only minutes ago. Fibre being installed soon though...

Had silly comments writers block for the past couple of weeks, hence the late update on this race from a couple weeks back. I consumed a lot of Sellys 'No More Block' to try help, we'll now see if it's done anything... done anything... done anything...

o_O Odd. I'm not a a a a compupupuputer.


When it was announced that one of the races would be at Apricot Hill, everyone headed to Willow Springs. Even though apricots don't grow on willow trees in spring...

Here's a painting i did for maths class 13 years ago. It's uncanny how similar it is to the above photo, which is why i hunted it out and scanned it to show you all.

The chrome purple car decided to spark things up a bit and try a bit of rally racing
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3838/15300819112_496dcf0148_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/pj5Gs5)

A few corners later i tried the same approach. A few others followed suit. We were all a bit confused. Except those that weren't. What?

Woohoo! Finally the right track! Well, according to the signs anyway, and most of us can read. Either that or you're just imagining me saying all of this.

As the invisible marshal continues waffling on, the cars are heading into the second corner, or deeper into the first corner. Whatever way you want to call it. Huh? The number? For what? Uuuuhhhhh, i didn't mean 'call it' that way dude. Because i sa.... uggghhh, just get away from me man. You're lowering my IQ level. Oh... hang on. *moves around* Oh. You're not someone. You're my reflection in the mirror. Oh dear.

The cars are white in front of the camera now, haha. Oh dammit! I did just use that joke too, you're white. All white then, i'll pack my bag. I'll be white back.

There's no white way to say this, but there are no right coloured cars in this photo. :( I mean white. No, right, then white. I'm gonna stop now, before i say the white thing. Uhh, right. I mean wrong. Help me Mummy, i'm confused!

It has been snowing in other parts of the track. Maybe this is where my obsession with white came from.

And the purple chrome Subaru was so horribly reflective that it permanently damaged the lens of this camera. Which every driver had managed to somehow avoid.

The massively wide track was perfect for the normal sized cars with small drivers who were being microscopically controlled by an infinitely (plus one) gadzillionth of a minuscule sized portion of an atom. I did science in school, so don't try point out falsities in my explanation of the photo which you just read. Of course... when i say 'did' science, i merely mean i attended because i had to. But i'm still better than those guys at NASA (Newbs Are Science Aexperts (who can't even spell)).

The purple chrome car was again managing to destroy another camera lens. But this time because it was behind my green Impreza, it astonishingly (if you're easily astonisholised) managed to project a green tint from my car to the camera. In reality though, it was probably the clear coat, as my car was no longer shiny. DON'T go looking for previous pics of my car to see if it was shiny, as you'll claim my claim is fake since it was never shiny in the first place. I didn't say that by the way, i just guessed that thats what you'd say.

o_O Ooookkkay. I don't really see whats so interesting about that pic either. :/ Except that the red car was in front? Does that mean anything? *shrug*

I mean, here's my green car. It's green. And a car. Whats the big deal? Get over it already. It's not like the next image will be of a elephant in Alaska.
https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5555/15114437710_6270c6bd14_b.jpg (https://flic.kr/p/p2BrKC)

See, no elephant. No Alaska. Just cars. Lots and lots of cars. Five, to be precise, but thats not the point. Compared to nothing, there are lots. Of cars. With no elephants.

As you can see ladies and gentle/rough men, this black car was under attack from the red car which was trying to pass it. Yesterday, we'll show you another photo, so come back then.

Later in the race (not much later...), everyone started mocking the AI in cheap racing games by taking the exact same driving line.

Then i got so hooked up with the mockery, that i ended up following one of the snow coloured cars into the dirt in a synchronized slide

These two cars were also in the race, 72 laps down from the leaders. In a five lap race. On lap two or three. You do the math, i'm off to lunch. At tea time. With my breakfast.
