It's time for our second challenge in the GT5 Arcade Challenge series. This week your challenge is to complete a time trial using a specific car and track in Arcade Mode only.

 

How to take part

We want you to complete your fastest lap on the given track, then after you are satisfied with your fastest lap, quit to the pre-race menu and take a screen shot of the Rankings board on the pre-race screen and post it in this thread. The time in your screen shot must be after the time that the challenge was set.

Yeah was looking forward to next time trial challenge. But looks like this thread is coming to a slow death. Most GT fan sites are doing there own time trial challenges it seems. So looks like people have jumped ship. Which is a shame. 

 

Would like to see more OPC events than having to sign up to fan sites. Maybe I should start an event of some sorts :D

Hmm tricky one this.

Lots of cars at 540pp look good in the garage but don't perform on the track.

 

Best so far is the Lexus LFA

Don't think I will be setting any times this time around. I've had a really bad case of the flu. I just know I will be way behind on times. Might have a go after the deadline has finished and im feeling better. But for now, im playing Skyrim from the comfort of my bed :)

Here are my times then. Might be able to improve on them if I spent more time on setting up each car. But very time consuming. So meh! :P

You are cruel Renegade.

 

I've been working hard to beat you, just when I get close, 1min 04.569, you go and drop the bar some more, lol. :smileysurprised:

 

I would happily show a pic except I've got the Red Flash LOD :smileysad: so bit difficult, hats off to you though Renegade, looks like barring a shock you got it again.
