I hope I'm wrong and that is actual footage from the game but I think its a con.

The graphics are WAY too life like and I think its a onboard lap speeded up with rev-counter graphics etc put on top!

Heres a good M3GTR video for comparison!

****** ****! It is a bit rapid alright. The pilot is doing alot of left foot braking if those graphics are to be believed. And the surface looks very realistic. It's computer-generated alright though. It'd be hard to speed up the lap and get the engine noise & revs right so consistently.


Pre-book - in GAME I suppose? that's what I'll be doing anyway!

cheapest place is amazon.co.uk, £29, it's €60 in gamestop and Xtravision.

In the US they also have a package with GT4 and logitech wheel GT4 edition (900º turn!) for $125 , I can't find it here for less than £114, rip off!

Although it might take a while before we can put up some times because I think the ring is a bonus track (not sure though)!

Burning a drop of oil there barry, you should maybe look at putting a set of rings init before attempting the 'real' nurburgring, don't want you messing up the track fer me
