Japanese Compact Cup

JAPANESE COMPACT CUP

Seeing as nothing is planned for this Friday I was wondering if anyone would be interested in another one night mini-championship similar to the Honda Type-R event I ran just before PSN went down.

The cars I'm looking to run are:

NISSAN March 12SR '07
SUZUKI Swift Sport '07
TOYOTA Vitz RS 1.5 '07

** all premium cars **

They will all be heavily upgraded and should be around the 200bhp/900kg mark. So not blisteringly quick but a nice gentle re-introduction to online racing, and these should provide close, fun racing.

The format will be similar to the Honda Type-R event, i.e. short, quick fire races and points scored.

I know a few can't make this Friday so if there's not enough interest I will do it some other time. If I can get at least 6 people then I will go ahead, and further details and car upgrades will be posted tomorrow.:smashin:

Nice one. I want to try and get all the cars involved so you can either sort it out amongst yourselves or I will randomly assign them.:devil:

Think I will go with the Vitz. I've still to do the beginner Vitz race on a-spec. Back in the days of scrimping for cash, I just refused to buy one out of principal!!

This will solve that problem:D

That was my inspiration for this event. I remember doing the Vitz race when I first started with GT5 and I had the car matched up to the AI cars and it was really competitive and great fun. A rare moment in GT5 single player.

I will post all the car mods tomorrow, but they will all be near enough maxed out.

** Reminder - these are all premium cars. **

I may drop the Honda CR-V seeing as it's one of these dang fangled hybrid cars.

It's a matter of principle.

That could be the prize for the "lucky" winner :D

I've got no credits. So no prize.

Hard times.

I have 15 mil so let me know what you need

Nothing really. It's not as if I play GT5 much.

I've binned the Honda CR-Z. I'm going to use the Nissan March (micra) tomorrow.

Car upgrades and the circuit list will be posted later today.

Not really. 12 hours of boredom.:boring:

Where is everyone? Surely there's more than 5 of us want to race tomorrow?:confused:

I'm at work filling up the last 3 hours on a conf call watching servers reboot hoping my fix works!

Fun times!

have you got a spec for the swift or shall I just max it out? I'll be later tonight - 10ish as I'm banking some hours with the lady tonight ahead of tomorrow's zoom zooms.

Sorry lads, I'm going to cancel this due to a lack of interest.

Thanks to Seb, Matt, dazza and davebutton for showing an interest, but it's not worth the hassle of testing and organising this event for 5 people. Apologies.

I don't know what's up with this forum lately. After the PSN outage I would have thought a few more people would have been eager to get back to some racing. Oh well.:confused:

I will probably still be on tomorrow night for some casual races.

Maybe we could do a bit of FGT and perhaps GT1 champs testing tomorrow night?
