It is. It's in GT4 and PSP, so some of us know it quite well. There are several variations to it... the Full course, East, West and the Oval, an egg shaped medium length track with very little banking. Iz gud.

East is the best of the 3 road courses, has some flow and not just stop & go. I'd about put GT4 in quickly to play Motegi for 10 minutes, but I raced some splitscreen there in Forza 4 last week. Razz

http://www.gtplanet.net/new-motegi-screenshots-info-on-gt-academy-rewards-in-gt5/



Any questions about the authenticity of the Twin Ring Motegi screenshot that emerged yesterday can be quickly forgotten, as the image (along with another completely new shot) have been discovered on SCEA’s press site.

The original screenshot is now available in high resolution; you can download the 15-megapixel version here for closer inspection. Another new image of a 2012 Nissan GT-R emerging from one of Motegi’s overpasses can also be seen above.

As pointed out by Jay in GTPlanet’s forums, file names of the respective track screenshots clearly hint at which circuits will be featured in future rounds of GT Academy 2012:

Round 1: Autodromo Nazionale Monza
Round 1: High Speed Ring
Round 2: Rome
Round 2: Special Stage Route X
Round 3: Cape Ring
Round 3: Circuito de Madrid
Round 4: Eiger Nordwand Short Track
Round 4: Road Course – Indy
Round 5: Suzuka Circuit
Round 5: Tokyo R246
Round 6: Eiger Nordwand Short Track
Round 6: The Top Gear Test Track
Round 7: London
Round 7: Special Stage Route 5
Round 8: Circuit de la Sarthe 2009
Round 8: Twin Ring Motegi East Short Course
Finally, Kazunori Yamauchi answered a question via Twitter that many GTPlanet users have been asking: when will you be able to claim the prizes earned in the GT Academy 2012 mini-game in Gran Turismo 5?

Responding in English, Kazunori stated that “all the prizes will be sent out together when the 8 week event is over.” Thanks to all of you who sent this in so quickly!

Rounds 1-5 and 2-5 include two AI cars each; there's no apparent penalty for hitting them.

Correction: at 2-5 I can get a contact penalty; via running straight into the back of an AI car while it's accelerating. If it's braking or turning any contact is allowed with no penalty to me. My best time at 1-5 uses both AI cars for extra turning, I can't get within .15 of that time cleanly.
I think this is an excellent thing to teach via GT Academy.

At four or five tracks without traffic and with turns I got in the top .5% or so overall in 5 runs which isn't too damn bad I think.

I got into the top 5 of my friend list for all 5 events of round 3. Currently 150th of 3-4. Neither will last long Razz

And I admit of cheating in the sense of downloading ghosts and using them Embarassed

I must say the events are quite enjoyable. Thumbs Up!

Lurking PSN off and on today. Looks like FFB is stronger/changed, headlighting has been played with, and the automatically-made-upon-game-start backup gamesave works.

The new Seasonal events are up. This round introduces the new "Performance Difference Bouns", which increases the payout the lower the PP of your car is.


This is an expert level event using FF cars.

Tuning is allowed up to 430PP, and tires are limited to Sports/Hard or less.

In this race there is a "Performance Difference Bonus" where cars with lower PP receive a reward bonus For example, winning with a 400PP car in this race will roughly double the reward.

Tsukuba - 7 laps
Daytona SS - 5 laps
Cape Ring "Outer" (It's called Periphery, but apparently someone at PD doesn't know that ) - 5 laps
Clubman Stage Route 5 - 7 laps
Eifel (Kart) 103B - 7 laps

Neat. Shame I don't need the credits. Would have been handy a year ago.

That FF seasonal is neat, grind detected if anyone needs some Cr/XP in a hurry. I ran a 391pp Hyundai, it was giving me 750k ish per win (200% login bonus involved).

OUCD got a refresh too.
