    Gran Turismo Sport -Tuesday nights forum races

    I honestly didn't think I had done anything wrong. if I had hit @scoobysi during the attempted overtake, and taken him out as well, I would have held my hand up and given the place back, but I thought we both had just over shot the braking point whilst racing. Looking back at the replay now, it does look like I come off better from the reset, but in the heat of the race I was more concerned about getting back up to speed than if I had gained an unfair advantage. Hope we can put it down to a racing incident, as we had some great close racing before that moment. Not a fan of the automatic reset, as I think If you go off, it should be your responsibility to get yourself back on track quickly and safely, and it obviously negates the chances of scenarios like what happened at Suzuka arising. More than happy for it to be turned off for the remaining races. If it's any consolation, I did start in 5th place instead of 2nd in the restart, so I sort of took a penalty in the race anyway

    If I had knocked you off the track, then I would have given the place back, but you went off track as a result of braking late too, from what I could tell. If @McSpeed takes a look at it and thinks I should have given the place back, then feel free to switch the results.

    Footage of the incident Sorry about that, I thought I had enough distance to clear you before the corner. Nordschleife the next race then, not looking forward to that!

    As predicted, I made a complete mess of my race at Mount Panorama, it is an amazing track, but I just cant string a decent lap together. I managed to get up to 3rd place briefly, before spinning in the down hill twisty section and then completely missing my breaking point at the corner after conrod straight, and ending in the gravel. Due to falling so far behind I decided to pit early, but crashed entering the pit lane and some how get stuck at the entrance! That put an end to any hope of moving back up the field, and the rest of the race just became a practice session. Hoping for a better result next week at Suzuka. The F1500 race was fun around Catalunya. It could make for an interesting mini championship to try in the future, especially as we have quite a few current F1 tracks now available in GT sport.

    Really struggled at the Red Bull ring in last weeks race, felt like my tyres were going off after a lap or two. I spent the last few laps tip toeing around the circuit, in the hope of clinging onto a podium finish, but @p1nseeker took 3rd place in the end. My bogey track tonight, Mount Panorama, so my time at the top of the championship could be short lived, if @mexos is racing tonight. Will we be adding Catalunya to the Championship?

    I too was under the impression that you would start the race with the tyres you finish qualifying with, but that is not the case, at least I know for future races. Thought I had thrown the race away at one point, as I kept putting the car into the wall at the tricky chicane at the end of the lap. I think I did it 3 times in a row whilst chasing down @Beezer Shame @mexos not being able to make it, as although I closed the gap to his lead, I would rather it be through racing on track, than his absence.

    Should be about later, suffering with a nasty cold and lack of sleep, so probably just do the cup race tonight.

    That was a close finish! I didn't put enough fuel in on my second stop, and only noticed with 2 laps to go. I had to turn fuel usage dial to 6, and change gear at low revs to try and get to the end. Abandoned fuel saving on the last corner, and just managed to hold onto 4th place.

    Thank you, sorry for spoiling your winning streak I had a good view of your battle with @PeteBrant for a few laps, some very close racing! My original strategy was to try and keep the Hard tyres alive until the end, but I thought I would take my chances on a fresh set of softs and see if I could regain my starting position, and it worked out better than expected. Last Race in the Redbull Junior was fun, bit tricky controlling them with the dualshock as they are a bit twitchy on the edge of their grip. Struggled to keep up with @McSpeed he was very fast through some of the corners. Looking forward to next weeks race.

    I followed a similar strategy, but decided to do a second pit stop with only 3 laps left, and changed back onto Soft tyres! Thought I had wrecked my race, as I came out of the pits some 12 seconds behind 6th place, but luckily for me most peoples tyres must have been going off, as I managed to drag the car up to 3rd place. Looking forward to racing on Mount Fugi, although i'm hoping at some point that they bring Spa and Silverstone back, as they would be perfect for racing the Gr.3 class cars around.

    Thank you. I think my start was helped due to getting a little nudge from behind, as my initial getaway wasn't brilliant. Someone must have been leaking oil on the track as every time Mcspeed went off, I seemed to follow him

    Hi, Thought I would sign up, and say thanks for the great racing over the past few weeks. The Brands Hatch race was fun last night, although I made a pigs ear of the first two corners on the opening lap (as can be seen in the clip posted above!). Makes a change to have some close battles, without the fear of being punted off every other corner, like what happens all to often in Sport Mode. Just out of interest, how many race using a wheel? I used to enjoy using my Logitech Driving force GT on Gran turismo 6, but since that is not compatible with the PS4, I have had to revert to using the control pad. Looking to pick up a Logitech G29 in the near future, hopefully it can help me shave a few more tenths off my lap times!
