    GT Academy 2014

    Played GT6 for the first time in months last night purely because of the GT Academy. But in saying that, as soon as i got gold on the Nissan Leaf test (which sounds like a jet plane ) i quit the event.

    Have got no real interest in winning GT Academy like Bryan etc, mainly because i know i'm not that skilled in the game and also because i do real motorsports for fun, and wouldn't want to do it as a career option/job sorta thing.

    But yeah. I see 359 had the quickest time when i did it, out of those on my friends list anyway.

    I only did about four laps before whacking a cone. Amongst my friends list, I'm like fifth, so it was just a toe in the water. I'll spend more time on it later.

    I'd imagine the Leaf test is just a preliminary, and the cars will get more interesting as the rounds progress. I might as well have a quick go at it for fun, if I can set aside some time.

    I reckon you should enter, Bryan. You'd probably win it. Imagine that!

    That would be Gran Turismo Inception!

    Or a job for Xzibit.

    Last event is in June according to the game, so maybe it will be on a new track...

    Totally an Xzibit job.

    Bloody academy, wouldn't register my time and then locked up the ps3

    I was happy just to set a gold time and leave the fast times to the stars.

    Sadly for me, the only thing that will get me interested in GT6 again is new tracks to download or a new update that dramatically improves overall performance of the game. I mean at some point I'll likely fire it up and run a lap or two at the ring or something, but GT Academy and seasonal events and time trials...just not any sort of draw for me.

    The second Academy qualifier is pretty fun - 370Z at Apricot Hill. Lots of nice four-wheel drifts and balancing on the throttle.

    Got to 1'37.277 so far (gold is 1'38).
