I would definitely want a save possibility in GT5 at least in the 24h races maybe they could make it so you could save when you make a pit stop or something like that. Driving for 24h is a bit too much in a game and that time could get doubled since you're not going to be driving all the time you have to take breaks once in a while

And to those who say this is not needed, and "if you don't like it, don't play it" - This is needed, and "if you don't like it, don't use it"
I believe the people that say "If you don't like it, don't play it" or "It's realistic to do a full 24 hours" (The latter is BS by the way ) are....
1. After kudos. Being able to farm kudos by siding with the minority, and having them kudo him/her for voicing their opinion too.
2. They have completed the 24 hour race without the save feature, and cannot bear the thought that people will be completing the event a lot easier.
I would love to see this feature, because really, I don't have the time nor patience to do these events. I've only done up to the suzuka event, but that was on B-Spec. I've only done the Grand Valley event on A-spec endurances, and couldn't be bothered doing anymore.

Consider me signed up, for all the reasons quoted, and the fact I have one of the few launch day 60gb's that hasn't suffered the YLOD of which a 6 day stint (based on 4 hours a day which is the shortest time I could complete one in) running continuously is likely to induce.
P.s Please make it soon as I only have the 9 and 24hr races left to complete once I've ground enough XP to open them.

Definitely signed up for this one.
Whilst I agree with the sentiment that games shouldn't be made easier for the sake of helping the lazy, it should also be taken into account the fact that games, for the majority of people, are temporary diversions from the stress of life, not the sole focus of it.
Many here have already made the salient points more succinctly than I might, but I think the main one that should be reiterated is that games should serve its master, not the other way around. Perhaps in my university days, I would and could afford the time to sit for 24hrs straight in front of a screen (I sure as hell did that for GoldenEye!) but with adult life comes responsibilities, and gaming isn't one of them.
So whoever takes the attitude of "if you don't like it, don't play it" is perhaps missing the point; I am the person who earned, and then spent, my money on a product for MY OWN entertainment. If I am not entertained, then the product failed in its one true purpose, and as such, is a bad product. Don't get me wrong, I am addicted to GT5 as much as anyone here, but seriously, if you think the solution is to leave on the PS3 for a week solid, intermittently paused, then you clearly have nothing else to do with your life, and perhaps should go outside and breath some of nature's air.
No flaming intended, by the way; everyone's opinion is valid, of course!

I’ve read EVERY post on this forum. Also posted a few topics about this on the PS3 GT5 board looking for this VERY thing!!! i have done the first 2 endurance races but won’t do any more in till a save patch is added… I would call myself a gamer, but lost one PS3 to the YLOD by leaving it on overnight. (won’t do that again!!)
