The GT Academy events are self-contained. They have their own leaderboards with very specific cars. Read the post and visit the site for GT Academy, it will explain everything.
I know, I participated in the previous GT academy and was 110 overall in the Portuguese leaderboards with a DS3.
That's why I asked if your times had been done with either a pad or a wheel and if it was difficult for you to reach those times. I've already golded the Sebastian Vettel X1 Challenge and I drive with a DFGT, so I was trying to get a kind of measure of how much I can improve in this GT academy.
