Too late for me. I traded GT5 and F1 for LBP2 and Great Wars: Medieval.

Polyphony Digital will be releasing the February update for their Gran Turismo 5 racer on February 19, addressing various pressing issues with the Playstation 3 racer.

The update will vastly improve the title’s collision and corner-cutting detection as the current system has allowed competitors of the American GT Academy to cheat their way to faster lap times by corner cutting and wall riding.

Furthermore, the update will address a recently-discovered bug that renders Gran Turismo 5 savegame files useless as soon as they reach a size of 4165KB. Since many players put hundreds of hours into their Gran Turismo 5 career to, losing the savegame file and all earned cars & credits can be a devastating blow.

While every action such as buying new cars and loading up the game will add a few kbs to the file, the most serious threat that causes the savegame to reach the critical limits are the museum cards. Players should retain themselves from viewing these gift cards until the update has been released as viewing a single one can add hundreds of kbs to the save game file.

The release of the new version comes just in time for the start of the European GT Academy 2011 that will once again give race gamers the chance to prove they have what it takes to make it in the real racing world. The European GT Academy competition starts on March 4 with the first round of online time trials, GT5 users from the biggest European countries (Germany, France, UK, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Benelux, Switzerland & Austria) are eligible to compete.

The quickest drivers will advance to the next rounds with the top of the crop ending up at Silverstone for the GT Academy Race Camp. The winner of this final meeting will get to compete in the 2012 Dubai 24 Hours event, below is a video trailer for the competition.

it seems a bit stupid to group countries into regions. some irish guy went fairly far last year but he wouldn't have been in the top 50 in the uk so wouldn't have qualified.

・Car Loan in Events
In A-Spec and B-Spec events in [GT Mode] - [GT Life], as well as when participating in [Special Events], you can now rent cars that your Friends have set to share with friends.
For details see 6-16 [Borrowing and Lending Cars] in the [Manual] accessible from the top menu screen.
