Special GT5 Seasonal Events for GT Academy 2012 Prize Cars
GT Academy July 13th, 

A series of special new Seasonal Events have just been announced for Gran Turismo 5, which feature the prize cars earned in the GT Academy 2012 mini-game.

The first event has just gone live, and features one race and one time trial in the Nissan Leaf G (GT Academy Edition) ’11:

Autumn Ring Mini / 5 Laps
Period of Availability: 2012/07/12 23:00 – 2012/07/19 23:00
1st: Cr.300,000 2nd: Cr.165,000 3rd: Cr.120,000
Eifel (Kart) 207A Time Trial
Period of Availability: 2012/07/12 23:00 – 2012/07/19 23:00
Gold: Cr.300,000 Silver: Cr.200,000 Bronze: Cr.100,000
New events will be released each week, with “special prizes” available for players who earn a 3rd place and bronze trophy result in each event, and yet another “bonus prize” for who achieve the first place and a gold trophy.

So not only do you get free cars you get even more races. 

O and they are harder than the normal seasonals. hence the get prizes only once pay outs...

Now the good news.... 

 

Spoiler

If you want in on the seasonals you can kiss a friends buttocks.

GT:A cars can be borrowed if the friend puts them online.

Thanks for the heads up Graphite, I didn't get a star to indicate new races in the Seasonal Online Races box so your post was the first I knew about them. :smileysurprised:

 

Just done them, got golds but not easily which is the way I like it, some of these seasonal races while fun, can be a little too easy, I like a challenge so yeah great stuff if they stay like this. :smileyvery-happy:

 

Thanks again as I'm sure I'm not the only one one who didn't know about them. (Must confess I rarely wait to read the news articles, I just want to get in and get racing.) :smileywink:

If you have not made a back-up copy of your GT5 progress file yet, please do so now!

 

There is a growing number of ways that you may lose your Academy cars and if you don't have any recover points saved, then it is very unlikely that you will ever be able to get those cars back in your garage again.

 

If any of this content is important to you, start making back-up copies after you receive each car and before you do anything else in GT5. Do not overwrite any other previous save file, either. Always make a new copy and save it somewhere safe, such as on another hard drive or mem-stick.

Backing up after receiving any tickets via GT5 ticket system Should be a requirement for all users not just for the GT:A cars 

Losing stuff your friends sent you could be just as bad...they may not have duplicated there content they sent.

Good I got time to finish the GTA when it went available for us Finnish players, I didnt do so well but heck, I got all Golds, I was kinda surprised that they added some GTA seasonals for us, love the ticket prizes, as there's tons of cars I want to remove mileages from.

The latest special Gran Turismo 5 Seasonal Events for GT Academy 2012 participants are now available. Of course, this week features the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-spec II (GT Academy) ’94, which was awarded to all players who achieved Gold-level times in Round 3 of the competition.

 

Grand Valley Speedway / 5 Laps
Period of Availability: 2012/07/27 04:00 – 2012/08/03 04:00
1st: Cr.420,000 2nd: Cr.231,000 3rd: Cr.168,000

 

Eifel 207A Time Trial (456PP maximum)
Period of Availability: 2012/07/27 04:00 – 2012/08/03 04:00
Gold: Cr.300,000 Silver: Cr.200,000 Bronze: Cr.100,000

 

Event will be easier to Old hands of GT.

As the more moden car is now grippy even when upgraded and the Grand valley speed way is an old classic track. (with a lot of dust on it)

It's odd the way some of these events are turning out.

 

Leaf events, I did them both but found them quite challenging as I previously said.

 

Silvia events, got to admit found both them a little too easy, which is odd as the Silvia can be a little twitchy.

 

This latest event with the R32, was a mixture, the race was a breeze but the time trial was a right "you know what" (clean version of what I was thinking.), I did it, but not without some serious cussing.

 

For the record I use minimal mods in all events, Suspension, Body Rigidity & Gearbox, NO "performance" mods (engine, weight, turbo etc.) I know you are allowed to Mod for the race but to me that makes it too easy.

 

To me it seems the events with the so called easier cars I am finding harder, go figure, still, I am looking foward to the future events. Keep up the good work PD.
