Been a very long time since been playing GT like, and after buying this again, can't remember the tracks and fair enough doing the campaign getting Golds, it's different online. I suppose i should do the same as you just choose 1 track and stay on that for the week, i've been doing 2 if not doing a 3rd here and there.I've done virtually the same as you and got it again recently. I have been doing the daily races, normally pick one of the 3 to do during a week and focus on that combination until it changes. The ratings can be a bit up and down, I did well at Spa in the group 4 cars a couple of weeks ago and went to A, but since then it has been dropping back down again and I think I'm back to the middle of B now.
I've been doing Bathurst this week, it has been very frustrating as the track is so narrow. I see it is group 3 at Interlagos again next week so that should be good, wasn't too bad last time around there.
Yeah, seems track knowledge and practice is key, watching the top replays too seems to reveal some tricks with regards to lines. I really struggle when in the races, in traffic is so much different trying to judge what others will do. Qualifying does help in some ways so you're a bit higher up.Been a very long time since been playing GT like, and after buying this again, can't remember the tracks and fair enough doing the campaign getting Golds, it's different online.

After checking my stats i was at 24,159 at Day 7 and now at Day 12 it's 16,443. I had a quick go on the new Daily today using the GT86 and went horrible and turned it off, had a 20 sec penalty and came last with no qualifier. My Pace of the top ranks in the world is about 4 to 5 secs slower still in Automatic transmission on the controller. Just need to get back on it and do more practice laps.
I seem to be slower during the Daliy than i am doing practice laps, need to be more consistant i think but that will come to experience and practice i suppose
Think i prefer the rolling starts than the grid, not too much spread out though. Think it's my kinda style the longer races and faster cars, more chance of people getting spun out loosing control or taking the corner too fast. The penalty system now is they've reduced it, It's ok for clean drivers like me but amazing for dirty drivers. So much more contact form other cars and no penalty's givenIt does, I've found qualifying really important too. The rolling starts can really mess you up, on some tracks there are massive gaps before the start. You need to be top 3 to stand any chance, but I don't tend to be good enough for that!
Suzuka takes my fancy but it is the longer race. Have they fixed the penalties yet?
I’ve started to watch that myself, about half way in the first race. Really like that track, was my first track going online on Gran Turismo. I’ve not yet plunged onto the FIA just yet, I’m still using the controller on Automatic, I’ll get hammered on the tyres and fuel compared to Manual. I need more time getting to know the game before doing the FIA.Watched the GT World Tour in Sydney today is was quite fun to watch tbh. Would love to get into it myself.
Yeah that's right, unfortunatly. Years and years ago i tried Manual but failed a few times. To be fair I'm doing ok ish. I can see now in some races i am struggling on a Automatic. I'm hoping that the new PS5 controller has extra buttons on the back like a flappy paddle. I could and just practice for a while on Campaign on Manual, just feels un natural in the hand pressing the x and square buttons for grears, i use the L2 and R2 for power and brake.Excuse me... Automatic?
You just need to practice. L2 Brake, R2 Accelerate, Square Up the gears, X Down the gears. Practice makes perfect, that or get a wheel etc.Yeah that's right, unfortunatly.

Yerars ago i used the X for power , i think the other GT game i used the left stick for power too and used the lever buttons for the Manual gears.
Trust in me young Padawan.@BIFCAIDS @Aaron.. Just had a go on Manual at Willow Springs N400. Tried Auto set a time, went to Manual can't remember who won, so went back to Auto was 7.21 and went to Manual and it was 7.13, by using the X and Square button. lol I'm really shocked on the diffrence, it felt so unballanced the car i was all over the place and the Brake Balance was a 0. When in Manual i could control the car so much more and the gears making use of the extra rev limiter.
Just keep at it , thumbs up
I think I won by so much because the guy behind must have been stung with a savage penalty.Had my first ever win today on Manual with the controller today, i could'nt get an extra 3/4 off the quali putting all of it together. I could of been on Pole quit a few races. Started of with the Trophy and was getting hammered on the straights, ended up going with the Alfa 4C and did much better.
I'm about 27k ish on DR points B rated on this account , on my LordGedi i'm still a A rated about 31,500 ish points.
@BIFCAIDS i never got a notification, I'll send you a friend request on my new account and if i'm on defo have a few races on the Lobby, I defo need more practice.
Nice win by the way, win by miles, I've never raced online on that track before. I've just been concentrating on the Daily Race C
If any one want to have a few games in the private lobby online add me SolarStorm_GT and LordGedi
Aye,I think I won by so much because the guy behind must have been stung with a savage penalty.
Honestly dont know how you cope in a lobby like that LOLAye,
had another few races this morning and everyone is pushing their way through, no patience at all. Almost everyone defends or battles so much it just looses time and everyone from behind just catches up. I think the penalty system has improved a bit.
I got bumped form behind twice in this race and left track and no one got penalty. Did quit good in the end even though started in the middle of the pack and got punted off twice
I kind of cope alright when i'm racing, It's not great at all when you get held up by other drivers infront of you and cars from behind starting starting to pile up behind you trying to barge past. It's much better for me when there's clear air infront and just think it's a quali.Honestly dont know how you cope in a lobby like that LOL
