I am awaiting delivery of my CPX adapter (which will allow me to use my TR wheel with Fanatec pedals)... how much longer are these time trials open, and is this the final round yet?

This is the final round, it ends on 6/15/15. I believe the other rounds have closed and not open for entry.

make sure you all the way round Dude so you get the car. You don't want to miss out on this fuckin gem 

@Ex, Dude nailed it, but you can still do them for cash 'n' cars. Also I think you need to do the first 3 before you can enter the final.

Your lap does not have to be valid to get the car. I got it with a red lap.

Le Sarthe is one of my favorite tracks, but I wasn't going to spend anymore time in that shitbox, than I had to.

I actually enjoyed the FWD race car. It is different and not everyone's cuppa, true, but I was quick in it and it is understandable.

I believe that PD really nailed the way this car actually drives. (unfortunately it drove me nuts)

I got on GT6 for the first time in months, only to find that you cannot even do these Academy trials just for fun and to try and compare to others, since it is officially closed.

MGT... ask them... why the fuck is it still listed as an event in the game, then?

So you can compare how well you did against your friends I would guess. I'm surprised you didn't run them even a red lap earned you a car.

I posted a go max over at the planet, because he seemed familiar. He has not been here in a long time, but I do remember a video he posted of some of his incredible driving.

Next week 14/15 Sept is the Indonesian Academy final being held at Sentul circuit. I will be close by so intend to stop in and check it out. Also will finally meet  my Indo GT buddy omDidit in person. Don't know if a test drive in whatever itteration of GTS will be available, but I'll share what I can.

Nothing to report. Got there for the start of day 2. They were busy for 2 hours,meeting and photos. I spent that time with GTIC_omDidit (2012 Indo champ) and a couple of other alien previous champs. Then I had to hit the road.
Did get to cruise the parking area in his R32 GTR though ......... and there was a tunnel  ;D   If I can figure out how to get a photo from my phone to here I'll put a pic in Cool rides
