Gran Turismo 5: M3Post Racing League?

Apparently, GT5 will actually be released next week.

Any takers for a virtual racing league? It would have to be M3s, and we would need to agree a spec?

Interest?

Okay, we'll get a list and PM screen names or something. Last one to earn an M3 is a loser, which will be me...

I am already looking forward to the N-ring!!!!

Unfortunately no sedan - would have been nice though. Game is pretty cool - i picked up a steering wheel and stand recently and it really makes the game a blast!

Mine arrives today (Amazon release day delivery option).
Edit: Got it...

Might take me awhile to get an M3, but count me in.

Okay, I'm out. I wouldn't be seen dead in a coupe...even a virtual one!

How do we do this?...Share PS3 tags and find friends?

Another question...do I need to make sure that the virtual transmission fluid is changed at 1200 miles?

Okay, I am off to play the game now... with steering wheel! woot, woot!

[Gamestop has the GT wheel cheaper than Amazon BTW. Ask me how I know]

Okay - my PS3 name is "Big_Brewsky". See if you can find my lounge and we can get started. I am close to my M3... just doing the amateur races. I am having an issue with my Logitech GT3 steering wheel - none of the buttons work but it does steer.

I would suggest we all run "stock" until we can agree a spec.
