The other night I set up a Brands Hatch track on PS3 called "Fiat Coupe UNLIMITED". Nobody turned up. I wasn't despondent as I know not every PS3 fan would naturally buy and mod a Coupe.

Got me thinking though how about a weekly Fiat Coupe race league? Each week someone hosts a race and posts the server name and rules.

Someone got the FIAT bug and set up Brands Indy online now. Room comment "FIAT unlimited tuning"

Gentlemen if you have a copy of GT6 on PS3 now is the time to fire it up and build your dream Coupe for FREE and come racing at Brands Hatch. Fastest lap tonight gets a free mug & pen sent in the post.

Just my luck. When I was playing GT6, nobody on here seemed to be even interested in the game. As soon as I lose the game disc, this thread pops up! laugh


With GT Sport out now, how long will it be before the GT6 online servers shut down, thereby ending the possibility of 16 forum members going head to head with Coops that look like they are blocky 3D paper model cars and sound like vacuum cleaners? chinny













I once put an ironing board spoiler on mine! love

Is the coupe on the new one? My PS3 now lives in a box somewhere and GT6 is long gone, exchanged for another game probably.

Don't know if it is. The Ps3 is mine downstairs, PS4 is upstairs. I don't get a look in on that!

The sound is surprisingly good in certain parts and authentically 5 cylinder and the graphics not too bad.

I spent a while on my own in there and trying to visit the cafe for a bacon sarnie found that area out of bounds. Discovered a bug though. Normally engaging chat engages autopilot, however if you engage chat at this point in the game the car starts to move backwards and forwards and bashes into the armco. Hence the damage in the pictures.

If you aren't chomping at the bit by now you will be by next sunday 9pm when the server goes live again..

Surprisingly quick with all the mods, and well set up, a pleasure to drive fast even at race speeds. Just like the real thing then :-)

The new gran turismo has just a handful of cars compared to GT6 and no FIAT's!

This weeks racing

Saturday 7.30pm til 9.30 pm

Sunday 9pm til 10pm Brands Indy / GP & Mount Panorama .

FIAT only, ideally Coupes even though it seems like the souped up Panda is quite the weapon.

so last night to improve grid numbers it become FIAT vs BMW. The Coupe was quicker in a straight line than the M3's and even took a victory at Le Mans hitting 245mph on the Mulsanne straight (no chicanes very long gears, N2O).

raced until 1.30 am a bit longer than planned!
