GT5 Seasonal Event & GT Academy 2012 Rankings Available in New iPhone App

 

GTPlanet community member Calcifer has just launched an interesting new mobile application for iOS devices that should come in handy for any Gran Turismo 5 player or GT Academy 2012 participant on the go.

Available for free in the iOS App Store, the app lets you easily view the top 250 ranked times for each GT5 Seasonal Event and for each GT Academy 2012 time trial. Even better, you can sign in to your PSN account to see your friend’s times, and even view your own time for the event, including the next 10 faster and 5 slower drivers around you – a feature that’s not even available on Polyphony Digital’s own website!

To download the free app, click here, or just search “rankings for gran turismo” in the App Store on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Thanks to Calcifer to for creating and sharing this app with the community! To get in touch with him or share feedback or bug reports, visit his forum topic here.

Now that's customer service. I love that they actually take people's comments into consideration to improve the game.

Yeap . That new feature was suggested by the GTPlanet's community.



GT Academy 2012 Round 5: Nissan Skyline GT-R V・spec II Nür (GT Academy) ’02

In this test, you’ll be faced with a variety of corners that you will navigate with the Nissan Skyline GT-R V Spec II Nür.

The Skyline GT-R features an all-wheel-drive system where the engine sends power to all four wheels. All-wheel-drive cars are known for excellent acceleration off the line and superior handling stability. However, because these cars tend to be heavier than their rear-wheel-drive counterparts with increased load on the front tires, they tend to understeer more.

In order to drive these cars fast, you need to decelerate adequately in advance before the corner, and follow a racing line that takes understeer into account.

  • High-Speed S Curves with Steep Elevation
  • Continuous Hairpin Corners with Steep Elevation
  • Spa-Francorchamps, 'Pouhon'
  • Suzuka Circuit, 'Degner Curve'
  • Series of Corners at Dusk, Low Visibility

GT Academy 2012 Round 6: GT-R Black edition (GT Academy) ’12

This car is one of a very few supercars from Japan—the Nissan GT-R Black Edition.
Your mission is to take this car through a variety of challenging corners. You’ll find the car is very stable through corners and has phenomenal acceleration, supplied by its powerful 550HP engine. That said, its heavy nature makes it prone to understeer. To drive quickly through these corners, you’ll need to make sure you brake relatively early.

The key to achieving a good run is to make full use of the car’s acceleration provided by the engine and all-wheel-drive. Avoid going into tight corners with too much speed, and also, make sure to turn in quickly and get back on the throttle early.

  • Nürburgring, 'Pflanzgarten'
  • Sections with Rapid Elevation Changes
  • Top Gear Test Track, 'Hammerhead'
  • Downhill S Curve
  • Sarthe at Night, 'Hunaudieres'
