    The VAG legend stays true, as the Volkswagen Lupo1.4 '02 won the vote with 30.77%!!!

    Not sure on how to do this yet (as i don't have the game obviously) but i'm hoping one of the following things will happen:

    1) be able to setup a track day/event where people can come and post their times using the Lupo around the Top Gear test track
    2) people can race the Top Gear test track using the Lupo, no modifications, no tuning, no changes whatsoever and then post their best lap times on here with a screenshot/photo of your time

    As soon as i get playing the game tomorrow, i'll post up some more details as to how we should go about this

    In the mean time (for those eager beavers) please feel free to race the TG test track in the Volkswagen Lupo1.4 '02 and then post up pics/screenshots of your best time! Please remember that there are no modifications, no changes to any setup or anything allowed to be done to the Lupo before driving around the track.

    I'll then make a leader board and keep it up to date as best possible.

    Any suggestions on how to make this better would be great also :)

    Good luck! And safe driving people! :eyebrows:

    Yay!!!! Lupo's rock. Hopefully mine should arrive today and by the weekend I suspect I will have a lupo to rally around the top gear test track.

    Cheers for doing this mate!

    I went to tesco this morning for mine :) and omfg unlocking the TGTT is ridiculous, I'm impatient and it's a race between 12 VW campers that barely hit 60mph :-/ I kept driving into the back of the computers :-/ and they kept breaking at the follow through like WTF!!!!

    Anyway so far I'm very pleased it's an unreal game, took a while to get one of the license things on gold, and I mean a while! Was starting to really get on my nerves as the licenses do.

    My wife is a proper snot bag. She ignored my texts all morning, then strung me along etc, and finally sent me this pic, followed by a pic of it installing.

    [​IMG]

    Then she just sent another saying she was so excited she might pee herself...sarcastic woman! Still, she's installing it all for me though, so I can't complain [​IMG] Roll on the end of work.

    hahahahaha! I might tell her you said that, she'll be well made up! Just found out that I won a £100 prize at work (I'm a student really, so it's not quite work). My day just got better!

    I will quote the text I got from my wife when I told her I'd won £100...

    "Seriously?!?!?!?!? HA That's AMAZING! Well done :) Amazing BJ for you tonight. Could your day get any better? Love you"

    What a great text....shame i'll be playing GT5 all night so will miss the BJ.





    I'm kidding!

    All you need is a cold beer, a racing seat/steering wheel setup and the volume turned up to MAX :laugh:

    I have a steering wheel, but nothing to mount it on yet, ha! It's a christmas present too so she won't let me have it early :( She said I can try GT5 out with it tonight, but will probably save that for friday when she's out so i get a good few hours in with it. I have plans already tonight so will get about 30 mins only, and that will be with a 2 year old jumping allover me and slapping me in the face as she likes to do! :(

    Right I had a cheeky go on the way back to work from a meeting, 1st go 9th, 2nd go 5th, 3rd go 2nd! you are quite right if youre on your own the other campers catch up after the follow through, what you have to do is try and be in the slip stream behind another van it really does make a difference, as does driving like a touring car driver lol. Also no real need to brake for the second to last corner. Good luck people!

    I got first second attempt at actually completing the track haha, everytime I would hit the back of someone or be shoved out while trying to over/undertake, but it does require some patience as the car is POOOO!!!

    time for some more GT :eyebrows:

    Your poor controller! Ha

    I am loving the game, just about to get my a license. Arent the jaggy shadows awful though! Hopefully a patch will fix them, but they're awful.

    Do what i do, and upgrade the TV to a HD projector that gives you a 90" image...that's the way to do it!!!

    OK guys so I'm just after figuring out that any and ALL Standard cars must be bought from the Used Dealer, seeing as they appear randomly there there's a chance of our TGTT Reasonably priced car not appearing to all of us straight away, I for one still haven't seen it.

    I WANT MY DAMN Quattro!!!! FFS!

    Anyway I think we may need to change the car to one that is 'Reasonably priced' on the Premium list so that everyone can participate if ASAP if they wish.

    What about the 147 Twin Spark?

    I haven't checked yet, but can't you buy the Lupo from a dealership?

    Plus, you could just do the TGTT when you've unlocked it Arcade mode, so that you don't have to buy the car...

    I think i'll restart this for December once people have had a chance to unlock the TGTT, coz i certainly haven't yet :laugh:

    Too busy with my 246bhp Toyota Yaris (Vitz) which only weighs 874kg!!! It's a lil rocket!!!!

    There's no Lupo in the dealership, but in arcade mode I think the Lupo GTI is available, not the 1.4 '02 one though, we could just change it to the Lupo avail in Arcade, and the track is basically unlockable straight away, just go into your special events and it takes a bit of time if you're impatient like me haha

    Just read that you will change the lupo to december, i think that's the best choice! Seems a shame to use it only for a few days! :)

    Oh, and I haven't managed to unlock it either. That race is awful, proper boring I think.

    Have you done it now then? I just think it's a silly race. Think I got third the other night, but one time I got barged off the track and hit onto the grass and disqualified. Had I not being getting my bj i'd have jumped and shouted in anger....Well, that's not true, it never happened as is so common with women! Promise breakers! :(

    Either patience or determination! hahaha I have no patience whatsoever but I wanted the TGTT and i wasn't about to let the stupidest car ever stop me :)
    Anyway if you just use cars that are available in arcade mode for the first 2-3 months then that will give everyone some time to get set in the game and have a good feel for it

    Level 19 is needed in order to do the last TGTT challenge so that you can unlock the TGTT

    I'm on 15, anyone else close?

    What...you have to do all three races before you can unlock TGTT? I thought you just had to win gold on the first, gutted! Enter me for the January ASN member in a reasonably priced car :crying:
