GT Saturdays (Check latest posts for weekly details)
« on: January 07, 2012, 09:54:54 AM »


[Links to Main PSN Thread]

Held weekly at 3:00pm Eastern

GT Saturdays is a community event open to anyone who is interested in clean, respectful racing among friends, old or new.  After you READ OUR RULES posted below, send a FRIEND REQUEST to GT_Saturday at least an hour before race time.
 
Race Lounge Proceedure - Go to Online, Open Lobby.  Check "Friends Only" and find GT Saturdays lounge.  Someone from GT_Saturdays committee will be using the GT Saturday account to host.  Friends of friends are technically allowed to join, but we ask that they be made aware of the format of the event before joining.  They are welcome to join us, but must read the rules and if they take up too many spots, priority will be given to people who planned on attending by sending a FR to "GT_Saturday".
 
Our goal is to provide both new and experienced racers a place to share the track.  Occasionally, we'll run shorter races, but our focus is on longer races around 45min - 1hr in length with a short pre-race.  This gives newcomers to organized racing a taste of what leagues and race series offer.  We welcome all clean racers who would like to join us!

will be held in m-tuned's lounge (M3's hosting account) so if you are not friends with him you could send me a FR and follow me in.

EDIT: to indicate we now use the Lounge "GT Saturday" so send FR's there.

To get into M's lounge you need to be friends with m-tuned. Maybe use your lounge if m-tuned is not around to add people.

that's where PS forum people will be meeting-up, and M said something about trying to approve FR's for newcomers.

Otherwise as an alternative make sure to send a FR to me before then (PSN ID= exXboxFan, no dashes).

for future weeks, there may be a more perminent change to who is hosting... this week was kinda thrown together last minute.

see link above to PS forum for new host info.  Racing starting in next half hour most likely.

Sounds like fun, and I absolutely LOVE using those type of cars!

I'll try to partake in the future, but can't this week.

Ex, how full has the grid been for the past events?

it would be cool to have either of yuo guys out there!

as far as participation goes, it varies greatly.

when Rated-M3 was really promiting it and the track or car choice was really popular, we'd get 13-16.  Only once have I seen a 16 full room.  The issue then was congestion on a tiny track (tsukuba) rather than lag.  That was a couple months ago though.  This bug thing is more pronounced than it used to be.

two weeks ago we had 5 total
last week I thnk we had 7, but 3 regulars were not there
average we'll probably see around 10 or so.

cationary note though... as cip found out last week, there are some newcomers who may not have the best etiquette. i posted some points about thiungs we saw in last week's race and hopefully they won't happen again or will be less disruptive.  It's a playstation community event, so you never know who will drop in.  But then that's part of the excitement too!

Got some testing in with Ex-X last night and this is going to be fun. I like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG '10, though I hear the M3 and Viper are very nice too.

yep that was fun.  you're quite the interesting fellow to chat with!

as far as slipstream strong... we'll see.  that might get changed in light of the fact that we will have a harder time stopping on turn 1 inside a strong draft.  I'll pose the question to that group and see what they say.

there is a possibility that this lounge will get split up into two pieces if we have lots of racers (to avoid lag bug)  be sure to get in there by 3pm so you can get a good qualifying lap in and that may decide which lounge you are sent to.

we'll start out in M-Tuned's loung at or shortly before 3pm to meet up.

it sounds like one of the faster guys in the race (guy who usually wins or battles with guys like GoJet) is TGuns16, who is getting 1:50s already.  Expect him to get down into the low 1:49s at least, maybe lower.

he's an "almost alien" type of driver.  hella fast.
