Just like that, GT5 1.07 patch drops

Well, this was a pleasant surprise from Polyphony Digital:

[Major Changes and New Features]
Friend Rankings
In Drift Trials and Time Trials, you can now display leaderboards that shows only your friends. While it was difficult before to locate your friends in the general leaderboards, this now makes it easier to compare your lap times and points with them.

[Fixed Issues]
– Performance points (PP), which is an index of a car's overall performance, is now calculated regardless of your tire selection. You can now set performance point restrictions and tire restrictions separately when you race in a lounge.
– Fixed the issue where the performance of electric cars increased/decreased after a certain amount of driving.
– Downloaded replays from Seasonal Event Rankings can now be viewed properly.

[Other Changes]
– Cars worth over 1,000,000 Cr. (including gift car coupons) are now prohibited from being traded to prevent issues during the trading process. When lending and borrowing cars between friends, please use the car loan system.

Benjamin’s Racing Diary: 12/13/10

It was another productive night in Gran Turismo 5. Almost done with the beginner series in A/B-Spec, just need to purchase, win or be loaned a classic car to win that event. However, the best part of the evening was finally obtaining the gold in the Top Gear Lotus Challenge. That was a horribly frustrating event, and I was sweating bullets the entire time I was in first place. My top B-Spec driver, Mr. Frankfurter, is not in a good mood, so he has been replaced by Mr Carey until further notice.

  • Gold – Top Gear Test Track:Intermediate: Lotus Elise:The Top Gear Test Track Special Event.
