    Halo & I should be there.

    Do you want this thread moving to Events or will you be creating a separate event thread in there?

    There seems to be lack of interest so I think I shall knock it on the head, it hasnt picked up at all after the pre-xmas lull.

    I think there's still interest, there hasn't been any events posted for this in advance. Last week's was put up just a few hours beforehand and I know that HaloJ & I didn't see it until the following day. This week's event, I guess folk were waiting to hear the details as you said in the first post.

    If you aren't going to play tonight then fair enough, I'll do something else instead. However I'd suggest posting an event for next week in advance and seeing what the turnout is like before writing off GT5. :)

    Thanks to all who turned up this evening, 7 in all - me, ChrissP, Mick, Ace, Mr_Mobotho, LouP and Plaxy. Good fun was had with some shuffle races, a 35 lap NASCAR race, a really race in the snow and some PP limited races at the end.

    Great to be back on GT5 after the Christmas break. Looking forward to another session next week :D

    Some of the best racing we've had - maybe the break has done us good! Thanks to everyone who made it.

    I love really races :D

    Glad you guys are still loving GT5 I'm in two minds whether or not to reinstall. It takes up so much space.

    Really enjoyed last nights races, possibly because I wasn't ALWAYS last.
    Get it installed jamie, just delete some of the crap that you never play.

    Then get GT5 installed again. It takes up less space than some of the PS Plus games and it's more fun. :)

    Well looks like I spoke too soon :oops: :D

    That was a fun nights racing, even Ace managed to stick around without falling asleep :thumbup:

    Thanks to ChrissP for hosting :thumbup:

    The NASCAR race was epic again and a couple of people mentioned that they enjoyed it more than they were expecting to. It does sound crap going round and round for 35 laps but I think its one of my favourite races.
    Dont know what was going on with Plax's car it was sooo much slower than everyone else.
