After the release of more DLC I feel again a bit hard done by the pricing. The Speed track and car pack came to £7.98 and for many gamers I'm sure they have been put off by this especially as a test track has been included in past GTs. But what strikes me is that PD has the ability to make these adds on great value. Why not create events specifically for these? For example why not add in special events specifically for this track. For example a Red Bull X race and a Le Man car race or NASCAR you could even be a little bit ridiculous and put it as a kart race ;-). Medals depending on top speed, drag race? And for the new cars why not an electric car series or Aston Series etc. The reason why I am suggesting these is that it does not require anything new for PD to create everything is there for them, not too time consuming and adds to the game value. I am aware there is online lobbies and leagues but it can be hard to find what you want and time consuming to compete in races. Come on PD
P.S. Gran Turismo 5 is so close to being one of the greatest games ever

Yeah, I bought both packs, hard not to really.
The Test Track will feature in some seasonals, I am sure. Although people should expect these events to be very similar to the License Test although perhaps more advanced forcing players to advance tune their vehicles. PD may even go as far to host a Drag time trial. Who knows.
Anyway, I'm more than happy to support my favorite title on the PS3.
I would have paid the combined pack price just for that V12 Vantage. No word of a lie, I sat looking at it for over 30 mins, contantly re-selecting it just to hear the engine fire. Beautiful.

I have yet to be convinced that the new track is all that great for actually racing on.
For me, it is what it is, a "test" track. And as for the cost, it isn't just the track that we have paid for, but also the additional function to test for acceleration and top speed. And I am totally happy with that. I had cobs of fun last night testing a couple of different cars.
As for GT6... I hope it never arrives, seriously. I like the idea of continual updates and DLC. If GT6 comes out, will I have to start over with license tests and the like? I'm just a bit long in the tooth and, although I have thoroughly enjoyed my Gran Turismo journey thus far, I couldn't be bothered doing certain parts of it again. Online challenges and racing against fellow humans is where it's at for me.
I can see, however, that unless there are other like minded people, I will be racing on my own in years to come. I'll deal with that when I get there.........

this track does seem a bit steep to me, especially when you consider:
i had expected it to be added at some stage as a free addition in a patch but i still bought it though
